First Look at Abby Lee Miller in Prison

Sometimes in life you make mistakes I trusted the wrong people and didn’t pay any attention to things I should of. I’m more than sorry for the mistakes I have made. My world flipped upside down when I had to enter prison. I did so with grace, the stories you read about me been a princess are untrue. I have made friends with both inmates and staff, I’ve tried to better myself, participated in anything offered to me and I am a better person for this experience. All the press stories and speculation are not entirely correct however, I am feeling hopeful but no dates have been confirmed at this time. I am feeling great and ready to turn over a new leaf thank you so much to everyone for your support especially my nearest and dearest I love you all ( and yes this is me in prison ) #abbyleemiller #abbylee #dancemoms #dance #aldc

O.J. Simpson is a Vegas Man

O.J. Simpson wants to live it up in Las Vegas permanently. Remember, O.J. told parole officials he planned to live in Florida when he was released from prison. Now, O.J. is scrapping those plans because he said he’s fallen in love with Vegas and wants to make it his home. He gets to play golf everyday, has nice weather, and is treated like a star in Vegas. Why would he want to leave?!
