More dancing drama!

ICYMI, DWTS pro Cheryl Burke was announced to take over for Abby Lee Miller for the remainder of this season of Dance Moms – something the outspoken TV personality definitely has an opinion about!

Speaking to Inside Edition for the first time since news broke of her replacement, the 50-year-old ranted:

“I am so excited that somebody else is going to get the experience to work with these ass-holes. [Burke] is skinny, hot. I’m sure they’re going to fawn all over her.”

The dance instructor went on to tell ET:

“I think that’s greatI only met her once at a housewarming party a couple weeks ago. I’m glad that someone who has worked on a network show for as long as she has on Dancing With the Stars is going to see what I’ve been working with for seven years. I don’t think she’s replacing me, I think it’s going to be a different vibe.”


“Wait until Cheryl Burke deals with [no costume budget]I bet you she’s treated differently. I bet you the budget is completely different, and I bet you she is never driving her car, with her gas, getting parking tickets that she has to pay, walking up and down the streets looking for fabric on her feet.”

Miz Miller also made a point to clarify that it was the show runners — and not the possibility of her going to jail — that convinced her to quit:

“I chose to 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. [They] look at me like I was this down-and-out podunk dance teacher from Pittsburgh that they savedI think the word ‘respect,’ the word ‘trust,’ and the word ‘thank you’ was missing from my relationship with the production company.”
