Abby Lee Miller is blaming the producers of Dance Moms for keeping her overweight.


Miller, who recently left the show in a whirlwind, now says she is ready to lose weight, and says the producers of the show wanted her overweight for filming. “If I was trying to be vegan, [they would] hand me a hoagie sandwich or Italian sub from somewhere,” Miller says. “I’m like, ‘What is this, lunch meat? I can’t eat this!’”

Miller has decided to get a gastric sleeve surgery, which should remove 80% of her stomach. It appears the notoriously tough dance instructor is using the surgery to get a “revenge body” to get back at the show. “I hate what I look like on TV and I want to look better, and nothing makes the mothers more jealous,” Miller admitted to ET. “There’s your motivation. Payback’s a b—h.”

Miller then got emotional speaking about the surgery. “I think when I’m going into surgery, I’m scared, I’m nervous but I don’t really have anyone counting on me,” she said, tearing up. “I’m an only child. I’m not married. I don’t have any kids, so there’s nobody freaking out if something happens to me… There’s nobody outside to see if I’m gonna make it or not.”
