Abby Lee Miller is coming to terms that she'll be serving 366 days in prison after being charged with bankruptcy fraud and for bringing $120,000 worth of Australian currency into the U.S. without reporting it.
The former Dance Moms star spoke with Good Morning America's Lara Spencer on Wednesday, and shared how she plans to cope while behind bars. "A year and a day, it sounds like a movie," she said, adding that while in prison, she wants to "pretend" that she's "shooting a movie" and is on location "for 10 months." She also wants to read more, learn Spanish and work on a new book.
Miller initially filed for bankruptcy in 2010, and was indicted with fraud charges five years later. She pleaded guilty last year on allegations that she had hid $750,000 from bankruptcy creditors. In addition to her prison sentence, Miller was given two years probation and ordered to pay a $40,00 fine.
"I wasn't ever trying to hurt anyone," she told Spencer. "I would never have filed for bankruptcy ever. I do not recommend it."
ET caught up with Miller in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, on Tuesday, immediately after her sentencing. "I feel relieved," she told reporters, including ET, outside the courthouse. "I feel peaceful."
Miller -- who got gastric bypass surgery ahead of appearing in court -- noted that adjusting to prison will take some time. "There's a few physical limitations, dietary limitations [in prison], of course, but it'll be OK," she said. "It's a realm of the world I know nothing about. I just know what I know and I do the best I can."
The 50-year-old TV star has 44 days before she has to report to prison, though has not yet been specified as to where she will serve her time. Miller's lawyer did request that she be placed in a facility in California, claiming that she fully resides in Los Angeles, California.
