Exclusive Q&A with Dance Moms Star Abby Lee Miller

Uh oh! The Dance Diva herself, Abby Lee Miller, is taking on the courtroom in Sunday's all-new episode of "Drop Dead Diva"! In the episode, Jane discovers that Deb's mother has gone back to work as a dance instructor and is sued by one of the parents, whose child was injured in class. Abby plays herself and will be called to the stand as an expert witness during the trial to confirm if Bobbi was or was not negligent.

We asked fans on Facebook and Twitter to submit questions for Abby and without further ado, here are her answers! (Make sure to read the entire Q&A — the last answer gives a hint about the Season 2 finale of "Dance Moms.") Remember, Abby's episode of "Drop Dead Diva" airs this Sunday, August 12 at 9/8c!

Q: Why did you decide to have the girls audition for Drop Dead Diva?
Abby:
I actually did not personally invite them to audition. The show was kind enough to extend the opportunity to the girls for the audition.

Q: How was working on "Diva" different than working on "Dance Moms"?
Abby:
Better catering, bigger crew and everyone was very kind and respectful.

Q: Did you find it challenging to play "yourself"?
Abby:
No way! It was fun to play myself and something I’m very used to doing.

Q: Do you want to do more acting?
Abby:
I am not an actress. This opportunity fell into my lap and I welcomed the opportunity with open arms!

Q: What's been your highest high and lowest low since filming "Dance Moms"?
Abby:
My highest high was proving the naysayers wrong. My lowest low would probably be when one of the kids forgets their routine on stage!

Q: What's your favorite group number the girls have done in season two?
Abby:
In the season finale of "Dance Moms" Season 2, the group number is entitled "The Last Text." When the girls performed the number, the audience was silent — everyone learned a valuable lesson.
