It's been almost three months since Dance Moms star Abby Lee Miller pleaded guilty to bankruptcy fraud. Now, the reality TV dance instructor is preparing herself for the possibility of jail time. If convicted, Miller could face up to 10 years in prison.
"It's a fact of life, I made mistakes," Miller told Theo Von and Matthew Cole Weiss on Monday, during their weekly podcast, Allegedly. "I thought I was doing the right thing, I thought I had guidance. I thought I was on the up and up, and I wasn't."
"I think if I didn't have a sense of humor and I couldn't crack some jokes now and then I would have already gone insane," she continued, admitting that she's "scared to death" of going to jail and called the situation, "humiliating and embarrassing."
The 49-year-old reality star was first accused last October of illegally trying to hide $775,000 worth of income from Dance Moms and the Lifetime show's spinoff projects when she filed for Chapter 11. At the time, she pleaded not guilty.
In June, Miller was charged with 20 counts of bankruptcy fraud, concealing assets, and one criminal count involving international monetary information. Judge Terrence McVerry said at the time that if convicted of the charges, Miller could face fines of up to $500,000 and a maximum of six to 10 years in prison.
"If I can be an example from other people, you really have to learn. I did all the things I thought I should do, and I still screwed up, big time," she explained. "I'm not going to deny anything, they were my mistakes. I am taking full responsibility for them, I have to. There's no passing the buck. ... If I did it wrong, I was wrong."
Miller also revealed that while she has the support of loved ones, it's been a tough road to face on her own.
"I have great friends, unfortunately they're around the country, they're not here," she said before breaking down into tears. "It used to be the moms until recently and I don't know, you know."
"I want people to know that I'm human ... I've been through hell," she concluded.
In December 2015, Miller spoke to ET about how she deals with obstacles that come her way. "My parents taught me, 'Hey, you go back in there tomorrow and you put your chin up in the air and do this, that and the other thing and you ignore those people,'" she said.
