'Dance Moms' Star Abby Lee Miller Shares Prison Tips For Lori Loughlin And Felicity Huffman
Abby Lee Miller was sentenced to a year in jail for bankruptcy fraud in 2017.
They have yet to be sentenced for their parts in the college admissions scandal that rocked Hollywood, but reality star Abby Lee Miller is already dishing out tips to survive prison for actresses Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman.
In a clip for E!'s Daily Pop, the notoriously blunt dance teacher felt that the first thing the pair should do is "be honest" and share their stories, adding, "That's what people want to hear".
"They're real actresses who are, you know, sought after by the public," she said of the 'Full House' and 'Desperate Housewives' stars.
"I mean, these are shows that people are going to fan-girl over. So, I think they're going to be really interested in talking to them and becoming their friend and being their sidekick and all that."
She added that she thinks the pair will "do great" in prison.
The star, who served eight months in prison before her release in 2018, continued to give out advice to the pair in an interview with TMZ Live, where she insisted that the women in prison “are some of the best people you are ever going to meet".
"They gave me the shoes off their feet, the clothes off their back -- literally. And there’s not one of those dance mothers who would ever do that, not at all. And these were strangers," she added.
The college admissions scandal -- dubbed Operation Varsity Blues -- saw the stars, along with up to fifty others, indicted over the matter.
Loughlin and her husband have officially pleaded not guilty for fraud and money laundering conspiracy charges, with the pair accused of paying $500,000 in order to have daughters Olivia Jade and Isabella appear as rowing team recruits so that they would be guaranteed admission to the University of Southern California (USC).
Meanwhile, Huffman has taken a different approach, pleading guilty for her part and expressing regret over the situation.
"I am in full acceptance of my guilt, and with deep regret and shame over what I have done. I accept full responsibility for my actions and will accept the consequences that stem from those actions," she said in a statement in April.
According to reports, Huffman could face up to 10 months in prison, while Loughlin may see a heavier sentence as she faces up to 40 years in prison if found guilty, though sentencing would likely fall in line with other defendants', which is around three to five years.
