Abby Lee Miller is bettering herself behind bars.
The former Dance Moms star, who is serving a 366-day sentence in federal prison for bankruptcy fraud, has completed a prison Release Preparation Program, Us Weekly reported Thursday.
Miller received a certificate in personal finance on Dec. 15 and also passed her ACE — Adult Continuing Education — class while receiving a certificate for real estate.
Before she reported to prison, she spoke to Us Weekly about not being prepared for her prison sentence.
“It’s surreal! I keep thinking someone’s gonna call and say, ‘Oh, it was a mistake!’” she said at the time. “I’m not out taking karate. I’m not in a self-defense class, though, maybe I should be.”
In the candid interview, she broke down in tears and reveals she panicked when she heard the guilty verdict.
"Oh, I panicked," she adds, before addressing her legacy. "I gave kids a new life. No one can take that away from me. No one."
Miller did take responsibility for her mistakes, however.
“I’m doing the time. I am taking the blame,” she confirmed.
