Responding to the 33-year-old’s recent comment that the girls from the show have been “traumatized” by all of Abby Lee’s drama, the outspoken TV personality told Us Weekly:

“I think it’s a joke. In my studio, every single day, I had numerous producers, [choreographer] Gianna [Martello] and some type of child advocate service person who’s the tutor/social worker who is there, who watches … everything that’s said, everything that goes on. So, how could any traumatizing be going on? That’s ridiculous.”

Miller went on to add:

“I think that’s a really rough statement and I would never say that about Cheryl. I think she needs to watch her mouth.”

The choreographer also hinted that she doesn’t think Burke has what it takes to host the TLC show:

“Doing a show for three weeks is nothing like doing a show for seven seasons.”

Fighting words!
