Abby Lee Miller Returns to 'Dance Moms' Amid Cancer Battle


Abby Lee Miller is back at work amid her battle with cancer.

The 52-year-old television personality shared a photo of herself on set Tuesday at her Abby Lee Dance Company in Los Angeles.

The picture shows Miller smiling as she sits in a wheelchair in front of the camera. The star didn't specify what she was filming but tagged her former show, Dance Moms, in the caption.

"Grrrrrrrr!!!! Back to the daily grind," she wrote. "Comment if you can guess what we're shooting today? #abby #abbyleemiller #abbylee #dance #tvshow #dancemoms."

Lifetime confirmed to People in July casting was underway for Season 8 and that Miller was involved. Miller quit Dance Moms midway through Season 7 after pleading guilty to bankruptcy fraud.

"I will no longer take part in Dance Moms," she said at the time. "I don't have a problem working with any kid ... I just have a problem with being manipulated, disrespected, and used - day in and day out by men who never took a dance lesson in their lives and treat women like dirt!"
