Abby Lee Miller is coming to Los Angeles! In an interview with OK! Magazine, posted on Tuesday, June 24, the controversial and very outspoken dance teacher and reality TV star announced that she is opening up a dance studio in Los Angeles. She will be in Los Angeles part-time and in Pittsburgh part-time.

So since she's coming to the city of stars, are there any celebrity kids that she would like to teach? Abby excitedly said yes, immediately naming Neil Patrick Harris’ twins as her dream celebrity kids clients. Neil and his husband David Burtka are dads to 3½-year-old twins Gideon and Harper.

While some may assume that Neil would object to Abby going anywhere near his kids, given her tendency to give extremely harsh, or she would likely say honest, criticism, that's actually not the case. Abby revealed that the actor, awards show host and Broadway performer already talked to her about teaching his boy and girl.

Apparently, he has no problems with her teaching method. She said that he told her that he doesn't want to stay upstairs while she's instructing his children but wants to stay downstairs because he wants to listen to what she has to say. She added that Neil is a Broadway performer who just wanted to meet her.

While Neil Patrick Harris is apparently a big fan of Abby, the same can't be said for many of the "Dancing with the Stars" pros. After her guest judge stint on the show in early May, during which she criticized Meryl Davis' footwork during her rumba, her pro partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy bitingly said that he doesn't care what she says.

Abby Lee Miller stars in a new reality TV show titled "Abby’s Studio Rescue." The show premieres on Tuesday, June 24 on Lifetime at 9 p.m. ET.
