Earlier this month, loud-mouthed reality star Abby Lee Miller was sentenced to one year (and one day) in prison over bankruptcy fraud. Now, TMZ reports that a judge has granted Miller permission to travel to New York City for a few media apperances before she is incarcerated.
Part of the stipulation of the deal is that Miller must return to the West Coast before May 20th. She'll be making a total of three final TV appearances before being locked up. The shows she's set to appear on are taping this Thursday and Friday.
Miller isn't sure exactly when she'll be put behind bars. The judge's lenience suggests that Miller is not considered a flight risk.
Miller is now considered a felon after hiding income generated from her apperances of Dance Moms and the spin-off Abby Abby’s Ultimate Dance Competition. She plans on coping with her sentencing by pretending she's in a movie. Along with the jail time, she'll be expected to pay $160,000 in fines.
“I’m afraid of being physically abused or raped,” she had said to People about her upcoming punishment. “I have to stay busy. If I thought about it every day, I’d just sit around and cry.”
