Abby had plenty to say about the news, though she seems to be genuinely happy for Cheryl.
“I think that’s great,” she told Entertainment Tonight. “I don’t think she’s replacing me, I think it’s going to be a different vibe.”
She also suggested Cheryl‘s experience will be different. “I bet you she’s treated differently,” she explained. “I bet you the budget is different, and I bet you she is never driving her car, with her gas, looking for fabric on her feet.”
Abby also got deeply emotional on the interview, saying: “I quit because I don’t want to fight for a great idea, I don’t want to fight for better music, I don’t want to fight for a bigger costume budget.”
Dance Moms producers have a different take on Abby leaving the show.
