EXCLUSIVE: Abby Lee Miller on Cheryl Burke Taking Over 'Dance Moms': 'I Bet You She's Treated Differently'

ET learned exclusively last week that Burke would be stepping in for the remainder of the season of Dance Moms after Abby Lee Miller's abrupt exit from the Lifetime show. While Miller cited production issues as her reason for leaving the reality series, Burke told ET that her experience so far has been "amazing."

"I am very excited to work with the kids," Burke gushed. "I have seen the show, yes. Of course I have!"

"Honestly, this is a great change for me," she continued. "I'm teaching very, very talented kids and very passionate mothers. It's kind of a full circle [moment] because I was that kid and I had that type of mom that was very passionate about my career and very supportive."

"I love working with talented kids, so I'm very excited," she added.
