Dance Moms star Kendall Vertes is thinking of quitting the Lifetime series. In the Season 6 premiere, fans of the reality show were surprised after the 13-year-old broke down after Abby Lee Miller called her a "hot mess."
"I love Abby, she's my music manager but it's not like she owns me. I'm not her product. I'm a person, I'm a human."
The ALDC coach, however, is not willing to give up Vertes that easily. In a never-before-seen video from Lifetime, Miller was seen having a heart-to-heart talk with Vertes following the incident.
In the confessional, Abby Lee Miller explained that when Kendall Vertes threatened to quit in Episode 1, "New Season, New Rules," she asked her to stay calm, go home, and come up with a list of why she no longer wanted to be part of the ALDC elite junior team.
The two then went over the list the following day.
Kendall Vertes shared that she always felt that she was not good enough for Abby Lee Miller. The ALDC coach, however, explained that what she is feeling is perfectly normal, adding that it was actually the "best way she can feel as a dancer."
"A dancer should always try to achieve perfection and never reaching it," Miller added.
Moving on with her list, Kendall Vertes pointed out that she and the girls do not get to do as much fun stuff as they used to. When Kendall admitted that all her "Dance Moms" co-stars felt the same way, Miller started to get emotional, too.
"It's a sad fact but it's what happens. Life takes over and you don't take time to stop and smell the roses. It is what it is."
