Abby Lee Miller Doubles Down on 'High School Football Player' Comments — and Quips About 'Available' Tom Brady

"They must be able to go out to a club, gamble in Vegas, rent an ADA-compliant, handicapped-accessible van," clarified the 'Dance Moms' star regarding the kind of "hot" jocks she's looking to date

Abby Lee Miller isn't backing down from a new dance with her detractors.

The former Dance Moms star was called out earlier this week for seemingly declaring her attraction to "high school football players" during an appearance on Sofia Franklyn's Sofia with an F podcast.

The moment in question occurred as Miller, 57, spoke with Franklyn, 31, about Tom Cruise's famous white chocolate-coconut Bundt cake from Doan's Bakery. After this, Miller asked Franklyn if she'd seen Cruise's 1983 film All the Right Moves, which she noted featured the Oscar nominee as "a high school football player."

"Oh, that's my downfall. I like the high school football players," Miller continued. "I still like them."

As Franklyn noted how she likes the adult "coaches," Miller doubled down and said: "Not one that used to be in high school but one that is." Franklyn then closed out the podcast episode immediately after that revelation.

On Monday night, the former Lifetime star posted a video on Instagram to respond to fans' reactions to her comments

"Hello everybody, Abby Lee Miller here just to set the record straight, mmhmm," she began. "I do like those hot, athletic, muscular types of guys — the jocks. I always have and I always will."

She went on, "And they must be able to go out to a club, gamble in Vegas, rent an ADA-compliant, handicapped-accessible van. And they should also have a business, a bank account, success and passion in their own right."

"Now," Miller continued, "if you saw the movie All the Right Moves, starring Tom Cruise playing a high school football star, then you will know exactly what I'm talking about. And if you haven't go watch it and then you'll know."

She closed out the message: "This November is my high school class reunion ... and I hope that the heartthrob is there — but if he's not, I heard Tom Brady's available."

Not long before Miller posted her video on social media, TikTok user Bites of Chaos was just one of many users to post a reaction video in response to her original comments. The user speculated that Miller likely didn't "understand how people are going to take her answer." Commenters expressed their disdain, with one noting they were unsure "if there's another way to take that answer" while another user said she "made herself very clear."

"That fact that she went back and clarified is crazy," another commenter said as another person wrote, "EXCUSE ME?!"

Coming to her defense, one user wrote, "Y'all I think she meant not one that used to be a football player in [high school] but one that is a football payer (I hope)."

She has remained single for many years, previously telling Entertainment Tonight that her "standards are too high."

"I have really high standards and in my mind," she said in 2017, noting that she feels younger than she actually is. "I'm like 22, 23, 24 … that's like the age."

But Miller still expressed her interest in finding love some day, adding, "I make decisions all day, so it's nice for a woman like me to go to dinner and have the man take the menu and say, 'Let me order. Other women would be offended by that but I'm like, 'Good. Because I can't make one more decision today.' I want someone to rub my feet without being asked."
