Abby Lee Miller has been out of prison for more than a week, meaning she is closer to completing her halfway house stay, and back on our Instagram feeds.
The reality star was transferred from the Victorville, California prison, where she had been held since July, to a facility called the Residential Reentry Center, where she will remain until her scheduled release date on May 25.
While the Dance Moms leader's Instagram account has been active throughout her prison sentence, the account served to promote her student's successes and give updates about Miller. While the promotions continue, Miller has given several updates on her life after prison, including a photo of herself.
