Abby Lee Miller’s friends are shocked and saddened by the news of her cancer diagnosis, RadarOnline.com can exclusively report.
As Radar readers know, the Dance Moms star was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma just two days after she received an emergency back surgery.
Ashlee Allen, mom of Bryn Rumfallo, who appeared on the dance show, reacted to the news Thursday morning.
“We are absolutely devastated for Abby,” said Allen.
Within the last year, Miller spent eight and a half months in prison after pleading guilty to not reporting an international monetary transaction and one count of concealing bankruptcy assets. Most recently, the TV star entered a halfway house to finish her sentence.
Allen said the timing of Miller’s diagnosis makes it even more sad.
“I think everyone was rooting for her to get right back to the old Abby we all know and love after this year,” Allen said. “We definitely hope to make a trip to see her as she is recovering.”
Even Miller’s critics are wishing her well. Miller’s notorious enemy, Mitchell Finke, who worked closely with Cathy Nesbitt-Stein in the early seasons of Dance Moms told Radar the news is “unreal.”
“As much as I hate her, I don’t wish that on anyone,” Finke said.
Finke said Nesbitt-Stein, who runs the Candy Apples Dance Center, as seen on the show, is also “upset and in shock.”
“It’s not good at all for Abby,” Finke continued. “She likes to be in control and this is now in God’s hands.”
