We’re only five episodes into “Dance Moms” Season 6 but Abby Lee Miller is already letting fans in on a little behind-the-scenes drama to come.
The Abby Lee Dance Company matriarch has revealed that there was a “war” at a competition Saturday that will be seen in episode 15 . While attending Fierce National Dance Competition in Agoura Hills, California, Abby says she had an issue with one of the show’s producers. Playing off her elite junior team’s weekly group number “Winter’s War,” Abby gave fans an inside look at the backstage hubbub on Instagram.
“The Huntsman: Winter’s War! And a war it was ...” Abby wrote. “One of the producers went off on our friend and stylist to the stars, stopping her from coming in during a lunch break to say, Hello!”
Abby said the incident was all she “needed to turn to ice and freeze the room.”
This isn’t the first time Abby has found herself at odds with the “Dance Moms” production team. In a December ALDC newsletter, prior to the Season 6 premiere, she revealed she was feuding with a unnamed male producer after he suggested one of her students play a pregnant teen onstage.
“I am forced to take their cockamamie ideas and somehow morph them into thematic dance routines suitable for the stage and our very young audience yet, remain competitive enough for a real dance competition,” she wrote. “When a grown man tells me he wants one of my kids to portray a pregnant teen and wear a baby bump — I have to put my foot down.”
Prior to sharing the latest gossip, Abby posted a sneak preview of her students in their group dance costumes. The image shows Nia Frazier, Brynn Rumfallo, Mackenzie Ziegler and Kendall Vertes sporting icy blue pieces, and JoJo Siwa, Kalani Vertes and Maddie Ziegler — wearing a crown! — in red and gold ensembles.
While it will be weeks until viewers get to see episode 15 — the show is only gearing up to premiere episode 6 Tuesday — competition attendees have already revealed the results from Saturday’s event. One “Dance Moms” spoiler site reports the group routine placed first in the junior division and second place overall.
“Dance Moms” airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. EST on Lifetime.
