Nia Sioux Gets Candid About Working With Abby Lee: 'It's Much Worse Off Camera'

Dance Moms star Nia Sioux‘s days of working with famed coach Abby Lee Miller may be over, but she will never forget the experience.

“Whenever I meet a fan they always ask me, ‘Is Abby really that mean?’ And usually what I say is: ‘What you see is what you get,’” Nia revealed to J-14.

“But also they don’t even show everything that happens on the show,” she continued. “So, I mean, other people might say differently but from my point of view, it’s much worse off camera. Nothing changes. That’s just her personality.”

She definitely isn’t alone in her mixed memories from the show. Chloe Lukasiak has opened up about how the show gave her a thick backbone, while Kendall Vertes admits that Abby Lee has “done a lot” for her dancing.

Famed Dance Moms teacher Abby Lee Miller is not having an easy time of it right now, as she is currently serving a year-long prison sentence.

However, we still have a window into her thoughts and feelings, as the Lifetime special Dance Moms: Abby Lee Tells All aired last night (July 25).

In the special, Abby opens up about being disappointed that Maddie Ziegler doesn’t share in her successes with her former dance teacher, Entertainment Tonight reports.

“That’s not the kid I raised,” she said. “I don’t think had she not been in my studio, she would be where she is today.”

She also shared that she hopes that Maddie remembers the good times with the bad and doesn’t have an entirely negative recollection of her.

Following the news Abby Lee Miller was quitting Dance Moms after six years on the show, the hit Lifetime reality series has tapped Dancing With the Stars alum Cheryl Burke as her replacement.

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.
