Disgraced “Dance Moms” star Abby Lee Miller will be California dreamin’ of life on the outside once she heads into the slammer Wednesday.
The reality star’s request to serve her one year and one day-day prison sentence in California, near her home in San Bernardino, was granted, Entertainment Tonight reports.
Miller, 50, is reportedly set to be an inmate at the FCI Victorville facility in Victorville, Calif. — nearly 2,500 miles from Pittsburgh, where she was found guilty of bankruptcy fraud in May.
Though the dance instructor previously shed tears at the thought of prison, Miller said in May that she’s accepted her fate, and has already choreographed herself a routine of sorts to make the time fly by.
‘Dance Moms’ cast thinks Abby Lee Miller deserved bigger sentence
“I’m just going to pretend I’m shooting a movie and we’re on set and I’m there for 10 months, and that’s how it’s going to be,” she told “Good Morning America” in May. She also expressed her plans to read, learn Spanish and work on a new book.
In addition to her prison sentence — which stems from 20 counts of fraud — Miller was fined $ 40,000 and ordered to pay a $ 120,000 judgment. She’ll also have to serve two years’ probation.
Former New York Met Lenny Dykstra served six and a half months in the same prison complex in 2013 for stealing memorabilia, furnishings and a $ 50,000 stove in a bid to hide assets from his bankruptcy creditors.
