The “Dance Moms” star once did time behind bars for bankruptcy fraud and she offered her advice to the actresses involved in the college admissions scam to guide them to survive prison.

52-year-old dance instructor and reality TV star Abby Lee Miller wants to put her experience as an ex-convict to good use, and she said she is willing to share some pieces of wisdom she gathered during her 8-month sentence.

Despite their different approaches to the accusations, both “Desperate Housewives” star Felicity Huffman and “Full House” star Lori Loughlin will probably face some time in prison for their involvement in the college bribery scandal.

SHE COULD HELP

“I have a lot of advice for them and I would love to talk to them face-to-face,” Miller, who was imprisoned from May 2017 to March 2018, said about the indicted celebrities.

“They shouldn’t hire one of those [prison] consultants. My attorneys in Pittsburgh hired one and Lifetime hired another one. Both were completely wrong on everything,” she added.

While Huffman officially entered her guilty plea on May 13 to two charges, Loughlin and her husband Mossimo Giannulli chose not to accept a plea deal, which resulted in the couple facing an additional count of money laundering conspiracy.

It is not the first time that Miller offers to serve as a consultant for Loughlin and Huffman. Early in April, in an interview with Inside Edition, she referred to the case and said she was there for the actresses if they wanted her help.

“My advice would be, ‘Take a deep breath and if you need a consultant, I’m your girl,’” she said.

PRISON WASN’T WHAT SHE EXPECTED

Miller admitted her fears prior to her imprisonment, especially regarding the interaction with fellow convicted women, but she was surprised by the friendships she ended up making.

"I met some of the kindest, nicest, most intelligent women that I've ever met in my life," she revealed.

DIFFERENT APPROACHES

While Huffman officially entered her guilty plea on May 13 to two charges, Loughlin and her husband Mossimo Giannulli chose not to accept a plea deal, which resulted in the couple facing an additional count of money laundering conspiracy.

Huffman has shown remorse and has admitted that what she did in order to help her daughter get in an elite university was wrong, making it more likely for her to rehabilitate her public image.

Loughlin, on the other hand, is reportedly convinced that she doesn’t deserve punishment for her actions and calls the entire thing a misunderstanding.

"While the fact she could serve time never leaves her mind, she strongly believes she doesn't deserve to. She truly feels it was all a misunderstanding," a source told Entertainment Tonight.
