“Dance Moms: Resurrection” star Abby Lee Miller is dolling out some prison advice to her fellow celebrities amid the college admissions scandal that rocked Hollywood.
Miller was released from prison last March after she was sentenced to a year and a day in prison for bankruptcy fraud.
Now, she has some words of wisdom for “Fuller House” star Lori Loughlin, according to Entertainment Tonight.
Miller told the outlet she has “lots of advice” for the star, who is accused of paying her two daughters’ way into the University of Southern California.
She explained to ET that prisoners will be interested Loughlin and fellow actress Felicity Huffman, who was also implicated in the scandal:
“Don’t hire a prison consultant. That’s one. Be open with people. They are celebrities. People know them from TV. TV’s a big deal in prison. A big deal. People watch it nonstop. So they’re gonna be interested in what it was like to be on a TV show. You know, what’s it like to, you know, be married to John Stamos?… What are all these things like? They’re gonna want to know.”
The cancer survivor added:
“They’re interested, and I think if they share their stories and their tales of woe and all that, they will be just fine.”
Miller said that they could even learn something by listening to others’ stories behind bars:
“And I also think, you know, it’s important to listen to every other woman’s story, because everybody there just wants to tell their own story and be heard. I think that’s what I learned most. Everybody’s there because of some, you know, crazy nonsense stupid mistakes that we made …. and they still are just trying to tell their story.”
Huffman, who previously starred on “Desperate Housewives,” pleaded guilty to a fraud charge as part of a plea deal to get a lesser sentence, Dearly reported.
Loughlin, on the other hand, plans to fight the charges against her in court.
She has been charged with conspiracy to commit mail fraud, honest services mail fraud, and money laundering. Each charge carries a maximum sentence of 20 years behind bars. Her husband, fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli, was also charged.
Miller was recently declared cancer-free after a battle with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.
