Abby Lee Miller served just eight months of her 366-day prison sentence for bankruptcy fraud, so it’s no surprise that, days after her release, she was thanking God. The controversial Dance Moms personality, who was transferred to a halfway house on March 27, was all smiles on her way to Easter mass on Sunday. That’s been just one stop in her days of relative freedom. Here, we track what else she has been doing — including glamifying, laundry, and catching up on celebrity gossip. Yes, apparently she cares about Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston, too…

<p>Dressed in black — including sequins, because of course — the <em>Dance Moms</em> personality arrived for Easter church services in California on Sunday looking noticeably trimmer. She’s said to have <a href="http://www.etonline.com/abby-lee-miller-has-lost-100-pounds-prison-will-be-released-next-month-exclusive-94633" rel="nofollow noopener" target="_blank" data-ylk="slk:lost about 100 pounds" class="link rapid-noclick-resp">lost about 100 pounds</a> in prison, which is a tremendous amount in a relatively small time. The 51-year-old had been imprisoned at the Victorville Federal Correctional Institution since July, and is now at the Residential Reentry Center in Long Beach.

<p>At the halfway house where Miller is living until May 25 — when she’s really free — she’s being provided with “a structured and supervised environment where she’ll be given employment counseling, job placement, and financial management assistance.” Apparently, she’s also provided with tabloids, because she was snapped reading an issue of <em>Star</em> about Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston possibly reconciling.

<p>According to <em>Entertainment Tonight</em>, Miller has already <a href="http://www.etonline.com/abby-lee-miller-has-lost-100-pounds-prison-will-be-released-next-month-exclusive-94633" rel="nofollow noopener" target="_blank" data-ylk="slk:requested “multiple surgeries”" class="link rapid-noclick-resp">requested “multiple surgeries”</a> now that she’s out of the clink, including a tummy tuck, breast lift, and excess skin removal. Before she headed off to prison, she told the show that she was looking forward to focusing on herself while incarcerated. “I’ve always put everybody else’s child first before my own health, before my own outfit, before my own time frame,” she said “Everybody else was dressed and out the door and looking perfect and I was running around trying to find a clean towel to take a shower with, so I think this will be a little ‘me’ time.”(Photo: BAHE / BACKGRID) </p>

<p>Miller hasn’t been avoiding the spotlight — at all. Right after her release from prison, she was doing some self-promotion, wearing a T-shirt with the name of her dance school on it. What scandal? As for how it is to have her freedom back, she posted on <a href="https://www.instagram.com/p/Bg69_tpl0Is/?hl=en&taken-by=therealabbylee" rel="nofollow noopener" target="_blank" data-ylk="slk:Instagram" class="link rapid-noclick-resp">Instagram</a> that it “feels great.” (Photo: Splash News) </p>
