Abby Lee Miller on ‘Celebrity Apprentice’: “I Could Do That With One Hand Tied Behind My Back” — Exclusive
Abby Lee Miller has no trouble keeping her young students in line on Dance Moms, but could she also put her talents to use on Celebrity Apprentice?
Wetpaint caught up with the 48-year-old choreographer on the 2015 Teen Choice Awards blue carpet last night, August 16, and while she said a resounding “yes” when asked if she’d consider taking over for Donald Trump as host, it seems as though she’d be more excited to compete in the competition than host it.
“I want to be on Celebrity Apprentice,” Abby said without hesitation. “As far as planning an actual event and getting it done, I can do that all day long. I can do that with one hand tied behind my back.”
Sounds like someone is itching for some competition, no? We’d love to see Abby face off against fellow celebs and give her all to the competition — something she’s extremely familiar with — and see how she stacks up against the rest of the cast.
But Abby already knows what her biggest weakness would be should she ever get the opportunity.
“Having all the wealthy friends, I’m not too sure about that part of it,” she admitted.
We’ve seen many of the celebrity contestants on the show have a little black book full of heavy-hitters. It’s almost a prerequisite for contestants in order to win favor and take home the bragging rights. But other reality stars without friends in high places have proven to be able to stand their ground on Celebrity Apprentice so we’re sure Abby could do the same.
All the pros and cons aside, Abby has just two words for NBC: “Call me!”
The Dance Moms reunion begins this Tuesday, August 18, at 9 p.m. ET on Lifetime.
