“I have been so very successful — maybe that’ll be some time to work,” she told ET. “There’s dancing in it!”

Miller was calm and smiling as she left her sentencing on Tuesday, but she recognizes that there are challenges ahead. “There’s a few physical limitations, dietary limitations [in prison], of course, but it’ll be OK,” she added. “It’s a realm of the world I know nothing about. I just know what I know and I do the best I can.”
