'Dance Moms' Star Abby Lee Miller's Prison Advice for Felicity Huffman after the 14-Day Sentence
The onscreen personality, Abby Lee Miller, has some revelations for the newly convicted actress, Felicity Huffman, concerning life in jail.
The "Dance Moms" star has come out to share her prison experience, and she referenced the actress, by explaining what to expect from being behind bars.
Abby had an interview with "Us Weekly" at the recently held Creative Arts Emmy Awards. She spoke about the tasks performed in jail, the lessons deducted from her eight months stay in prison, and how it transcends into one's lifestyle.
The seasoned choreographer also mentioned her thoughts on prison reforms, stating clearly how she aims at conversing with beauty-queen-soon-to-be-lawyer, Kim Kardashian on possible improvements. She said:
"Well, the first day going in is the most stressful, then after that, she's going to be in a big huge room with bunk beds, tons of them...she's not going to get a job because she won't be there long enough. She's not going to learn how to be a plumber...I took a real estate class; I took a finance class. I made friends with women that don't think should have been there either."
The 52-year-old commented on the fact that the actress's 14-days stay will only increase her pocket after the exercise is complete. The onscreen star stated that Felicity will make a film depicting her jail experience and that she will fare well in prison.
Following her short term sentence on the bribery scandal, the actress's representatives announced via a statement that her jail term and 250 hours of community service, as well as a $30,000 fine as retributions, are not contested or questioned.
"....She's not disappointed or relieved about the outcome. She's contrite and humbled and accepts the outcome."
Felicity is not the only celebrity parent on the hot seat, Lori Loughlin and her designer husband, Mossimo Giannulli were also charged for a similar bribery scandal. It involved providing false documents for admission of their daughters into a University.
The couple alongside other coaches and admission officials have these charges levied on them. However, the couple pled not guilty in recent trials, if proven guilty, their jail term will span for more than three decades.
Apart from giving a heads up on what to expect, the "Dance Moms" star has shown significant improvement and dedication to her craft following her release from prison a few years ago.
The dance teacher served time behind bars due to conviction from previous investigations of how she diverted funds made from the reality TV show. Her prison experience, as she explained, turned her life around.
After leaving the Victorville Federal Correctional Institution, and Residential Reentry Center, the 52-year-old lost some bodyweight and concentrated in remodeling herself.
