'Dance Moms' Abby Lee Miller out for revenge on Mark and Derek on 'DWTS'

The two "Dancing With The Stars" couples who better be prepared for some harsh judging the next time they hit the stage are actress Candace Cameron Bure and Mark Ballas and athlete Amy Purdy and Derek Hough. In an interview with OK! Magazine, posted on Saturday, May 3, Abby Lee Miller, the outspoken and controversial star of "Dance Moms," hinted that she'll be quite harsh on Mark and Derek and their celebrity partners when she guest judges the show on Monday, May 5, because of some harsh comments that they said about her in the past.

Abby was asked whether she plans on getting revenge on Mark and Derek for their critical comments about her teaching style on "Dance Moms" a few years ago. Abby first joked that she'll tell them both to drop and give her 50 push-ups. She then remarked that "payback is a b***h."

Abby said that she teaches her students to be never say anything negative because "it's going to come back to haunt you." She reminds her students that they never know who is judging the competition so they have to be careful with their words wherever they are, including when they're just checking into a hotel and riding the elevator.

While Abby didn't outright say that she was going to be harsh on Mark and Derek, it's clear that she was implying that she definitely will be. She clearly still holds a grudge against them for what they said and is looking forward to her payback. Back in February 2012, both Mark and Derek went on Twitter and slammed Abby for her teaching style at her Abby Lee Dance Company in Pittsburgh.

Derek Hough wrote that Abby Lee Miller was abusive to her students while Mark Ballas wrote that "Dance Moms" was embarrassing for the dance community and Abby was crazy. Come Monday on "Dancing With The Stars," they may very well just find out how crazy Abby can really get.
