Abby Lee Miller is back for another season of Dance Moms, but this time around, her legal woes will be taking center stage.

Just last month, the reality TV choreographer was indicted in connection with bankruptcy concealment and false bankruptcy declarations amounting in what prosecutors say is more than $750,000 worth of income.

In the first preview of Dance Moms season six, exclusively from Entertainment Tonight, Miller is seen breaking down on the phone over the ordeal.

"My hair is in rollers, I don't have a bra on, and I have a huge legal issue going on," she cries into the phone before shouting, "I'm finished!"

Meanwhile, the dance mothers at her studio begin to catch wind of the scandal, and use it to their advantage.

"Debbie Allen wanted to welcome our girl, so if Abby's not prepared, there is a studio that wants us," one mother reveals in the clip.

But Miller won't give up the fight just yet.

"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 told ET.

As Radar previously reported, Miller has pled not guilty to fraud charges, requesting a trial by jury (which takes an average of 11 days) in the appearance of her lawyer, Robert Ridge.

The controversial dance teacher could spend up to five years in prison if convicted.

The new season of Dance Moms returns to Lifetime on Jan. 5.
