Abby Lee Miller isn't backing down on her criticism of Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Meryl Davis. In fact, the "Dance Moms" star is not only continuing to defend the low score that she gave the duo on Monday night's episode of "Dancing With The Stars" as a guest judge, she's also accusing them of faking an injury. As seen in a video posted on Tuesday, May 6, Abby made the accusation while speaking to E! News after Monday night's show.
Abby was asked about her harsh criticism of Maks. In response, Abby pointed out that her criticism wasn't so much for Maks but for his partner Meryl. Abby admitted that prior to the night, she thought that Meryl was the "shoo-in for the win" but unfortunately "all of the footwork was horrendous" for her latest performance.
Meryl's footwork wasn't the only thing Abby found disagreeable. She said that during rehearsals, Meryl's shoes were dirty. She also implied that Meryl and Maks were faking an injury to get the sympathy vote. "I heard that she had a broken toe or something so I watched very closely and when they were safe, and they weren't in danger, she jumped up and down on her toes...and I thought that toe isn't hurting too bad!" she said.
As viewers saw on the latest "Dancing With The Stars" episode, Maks had some harsh words himself for Abby after she criticized Meryl's footwork during their rumba, telling host Erin Andrews that he "really do[esn't] care for anything [Abby] has to say." What does Abby think of Mak's response? She couldn't care less either, telling E! News that it's "no sweat off of [her] back," though she does think Maks' comment is "a little disrespectful to ABC and to 'Dancing With the Stars' and to a judge."
Before Monday night's episode, Abby Lee Miller admitted in an interview with OK! Magazine that she was out for revenge, though not for Maksim Chmerkovskiy. She actually had her sights set on Mark Ballas and Derek Hough, who both publicly slammed her for her harsh style of dance teaching years ago.
