The upcoming return of "Dance Moms" will feature Abby Lee Miller's emotional departure after her seven-season reign on the show. On Tuesday, the lifetime show released a two-minute supertease wherein we saw a crying Miller as she bid her farewell to the dancers and the moms who have joined her for the past six years.

Why is she leaving?

The 50-year-old dance instructor first announced her exit from the show in March.

In a one-on-one interview with Access Hollywood Live's Kit Hoover, the TV personality revealed she had been on the verge of quitting for quite some time before she actually decided that it was time for her to leave the reality program. Miller added she is "fed up" with having to deal with young dancers who make her feel like she is nothing.

The "Dance Moms" instructor clarified her sudden departure has nothing to do with money or compensation.

Miller said it was about respect and trust, which she said she did not get from these young trainees (and moms). She added that all she wanted was to be appreciated for her efforts.

The Lifetime star thinks the show was "detrimental to [her] health" and has left her "raving lunatic" over the years. Miller accused the show of "manipulating" her and "disrespecting" her privacy. Similarly, the TV personality made a fiery remark against the program in one of her social media posts.

Miller claimed the show has not given her proper credit for using her "ideas, award-winning routines, themes, and costuming" on "Dance Moms." The dance choreographer emphasized she has no problem with working with anyone, adding that the main reason for her exit stemmed from how the program has been treating her for the past six years.

'I regret everything'

According to EW, the controversial dance personality said she regretted joining "Dance Moms" as she tearfully recalled her journey on the show.

Her departure from the Lifetime series has left the viewers guessing about who's taking her place on the program. This question was seemingly addressed when Laurieann Gibson appeared in the newly released teaser video.

The Canadian choreographer has previously worked with Michael Jackson, Alicia Keys, Lady Gaga, and Beyonce. She also directed Lady Gaga's "Judas" and "You and I." Aside from her brief appearance in the supertease, nothing has been confirmed for Gibson's possible participation in "Dance Moms" Season 8 which will be led by Cheryl Burke.
