In an interview with Entertainment Tonight Wednesday, Miller shared her thoughts about her exit and Burke's appointment, telling the outlet she thinks the DWTS pro joining the show is "great."
"I don't think she's replacing me, I think it's going to be a different vibe," Miller said. "I only met her once at a housewarming party a couple weeks ago. I'm glad that someone who has worked on a network show for as long as she has on Dancing With the Stars is going to see what I've been working with for seven years."
She added that she feels Burke will receive different treatment than she herself experienced.
"I bet you she's treated differently," she said. "I bet you the budget is completely different, and I bet you she is never driving her car, with her gas, getting parking tickets that she has to pay, walking up and down the streets looking for fabric on her feet."
Miller also opened up about her decision to quit, explaining that she felt disrespected by Lifetime and the show's production company.
"I chose to quit because I don't want to fight for a great idea, I don't want to fight for better music, I don't want to fight for a bigger costume budget," she said.
"[They] look at me like I was this down-and-out podunk dance teacher from Pittsburgh that they saved," she continued. "I think the word 'respect,' the word 'trust,' and the word 'thank you' was missing from my relationship with the production company."
A source close to production said that all of Miller's claims are "simply false. Full stop."
The season of Dance Moms that finished filming last week will be shorter than normal due to Miller's schedule, and Burke will reportedly appear as a guest choreographer, which often happens on the show when Miller is unavailable. A source said the staff is happy to have Burke join the show.
"She will be professional," the source said.
