New Cast New and Attitude filled Abigale Lee Miller is back with Dance Moms Season 9! However, a lot has gone down to be at this level, and many fans argue the show has somehow lost all its magic post Season 7.

Well, this article will cover every scoop regarding the upcoming season of Dance Moms, so keep reading!
Racist Controversies Surrounding Abigale Lee Miler
The reason was abruptly cut off was due to Abby Miller’s racist controversy. Lifetime ended their contract with Miller after Season 8 contestant Kamryn’s mother (Adriana Smith) accused Miller of her racist comments.
Apparently, Kamryn had overheard Miller discussing how Kamryn was on the show because they needed someone “of color.” This infuriated fans and everybody attached, and hence, it almost got the show canceled. (And so did Abby!)
But soon enough, Abby realized the repercussions of her actions. And she ended up publicly apologizing for her wrong choice of words and how it affected the Black community.
