Following the rancorous departure earlier this week of “Dance Moms” star Abby Lee Miller, who said the show’s producers were treating her “like dirt,” another one of the long-running Lifetime reality show’s dance moms has bailed out on the show. TMZ.com reports that Ashlee Allen is out, just days after Miller’s exit.
The story reports that Allen “wasn’t down with the show trying to sex things up with the kids.”
“We spoke to the now-former dance mom, and she told us — first and foremost — the Lifetime show will never be the same without Abby at the helm,” TMZ reports. “Then she lays it on us … ‘Dance Moms’ producers have apparently been pushing for sexier dance routines, which Ashlee says was too much for her and her teen daughter, Brynn.”
Footage of the dance number that apparently was the last straw for Allen was posted on YouTube. TMZ notes that the routine is “pretty racy for 14, 15 and 16-year-olds.”
