NEW YORK - According to TMZ, two of the stars of the Pittsburgh-based reality show "Dance Moms" were in court Tuesday morning.
Pittsburgh native and dance mom Kelly Hyland was arrested two months ago in New York on allegations of assault and harassment, after an alleged attack on fellow cast member Abby Lee Miller according to TMZ.
TMZ’s website said “During the hearing, Hyland was ordered by the judge to stay away from Miller while the case is pending ... which means no talking, no phone calls and NO TWEETING at her.”

Sources told TMZ that the assault occurred after Miller was searching for new dancers and Hyland was upset her children were going seemingly unnoticed. When Miller brought in a prospective new star to the dance studio, sources said Hyland was outraged.
Witnesses told TMZ that Hyland began screaming at Miller before allegedly grabbing Miller's hair and, according to the celebrity news website, instigating "a full-on cat fight."
TMZ reported that cameras were present during the incident.
Lifetime's "Dance Moms" follows young dancers from the Pittsburgh area on the road to stardom under the direction of dance instructor Abby Lee Miller. The dancers' ambitious and sometimes volatile mothers are present for every rehearsal and performance, often getting into arguments with instructors and each other.
