Strictly Come Dancing’s Michelle Visage ‘SNUBBED for live arena tour in blunt email’

Published

on

Michelle Visage has reportedly been left out of the line-up for the upcoming Strictly Come Dancing tour, despite being one of the favourites to win.

The RuPaul’s Drag Race UK star, 51, who has scored consistently high with the BBC show’s judges, is reportedly ‘annoyed’ after allegedly being told the news in a ‘blunt email’, following negotiations with bosses.

A source told the Daily Star: ‘Michelle was approached by the producers working on the tour a while ago. They talked her through the dates and asked if she could be available. But then suddenly she got an email saying she wasn’t needed.

‘The message was short and blunt. Michelle was left feeling confused by the whole thing and pretty annoyed. She is trying her hardest to impress on Strictly and feels like she deserved a place on the tour.’

MailOnline has contacted representatives for Michelle Visage and Strictly Come Dancing for comment.

American star Michelle has been a favourite with judges and viewers of the show, consistently receiving high scores and placing among the top of the Leaderboard.

The star is partnered with hunky Italian professional Giovanni Pernice, with whom her lowest score thus far has been 36 points out of a possible 40.

She is believed to have received the standard £25,000 fee for appearing on Strictly, with her earnings increasing to £40,000 after remaining until the end of October.

According to The Sun, Michelle will pocket £60,000 if she makes it to the quarter finals, while she stands to scoop a cool £100,000 should she prove victorious.

The stars’ income will be further boosted once they join the line-up of the live arena tour, which takes place across the UK from January.

Michelle recently hit back at claims that she ‘hates’ British Cheryl, after they clashed over Baga Chipz’ advertisement for bottled water on Thursday’s episode of RuPaul’s Drag Race UK.  

The Strictly star responded to a fan who tweeted: ‘Omg why does @michellevisage hate @cherylofficial so much. Someone spill the tea immediately #DragRaceUK.’

Michelle fired back: ‘Omg it’s telly! We actually love each other!’ followed by a heart emoji. 

During Cheryl’s guest judge appearance on Thursday’s show, she appeared to ruffle feathers with mainstay Michelle as the duo clashed during judging.     

The two women split opinion on Baga Chipz’ product, after RuPaul asked the drag queens to create an advertisement for bottled water.

Michelle couldn’t appear to get her head around the concept of Baga’s water and said: ‘I’m really not sure about the water concept. With what you were selling, I think we had more fun watching you put stuff in your mouth.’

But true to form, Baga quipped: ‘I think I was just trying to sell fish and chips in a bottle that just fills you up.’

‘Let’s hear from the other judges,’ Michelle said, ‘Maybe it’s just me?’ 

‘I think it’s just you,’ Cheryl fired back, ‘I think it was actually smart that you kept it on brand. If I was gonna buy that water, I would know that was associated with you. Michelle?’ 

Correcting Cheryl, Michelle responded with: ‘Well her name’s not battered sausage is it? It’s Baga Chipz!’

In the original video, Tammy proudly displayed her pert derrière in a pair of cheeky briefs while glancing over her shoulder.

She also wore a pink crop top, and styled her blonde hair in two long braids.

But in Celeste’s version, she is dressed in a pair of light blue Lycra bike shorts printed with skull motifs. 

Just like Tammy! With her back facing the camera, Celeste feebly attempts to lift her bottom cheeks with her hands, before awkwardly turning and facing the camera

Like Tammy, she also wears a pink crop top and her hair is styled in two pigtails.

Replacing the rap song featured in Tammy’s video with a song about gravity, Celeste turns around and adjusts her stomach-control underwear, which peeks through the waistband of her shorts.

The track’s lyrics include: ‘Gravity, it’s working against me. And gravity, wants to bring me down.’

Meanwhile, Tammy boasts 10 million followers and is considered one of Australia’s pioneering ‘Instagram models’.

Times are changing, and that means that Brandi Glanville is giving the Real Housewives another chance.

During an episode of her Unfiltered podcast, the 47-year-old opened up about making an appearance on the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills for the next season. 

‘I will be back a little bit and that is all we know right now,’ she revealed.

‘There’s some stuff going down. It’s not gonna be PC, I’ll tell you that. Everyone’s like, ‘Oh, everyone loves each other.’ Not true. S**t’s going down right now and we’ll all figure it out soon enough.’

While she kept her lips sealed about the details, she did open up about her ongoing disputes with Camille Grammer, 51.

The star recently called out Grammer on her Twitter and also got sassy with one another back in 2018 over who had the ‘toughest’ first season while filming the show.

‘Camille was there and Camille had previously come after me on Twitter. I have to say this, Camille and I — we’re always friends — so for her to come after me on Twitter was just weird and odd to me, but I felt like maybe it came from a British woman we won’t talk about, that was telling her what to say,’ she said about the Twitter scandal.

‘We kind of had it out on Twitter, which was fine. She was at the party and a couple producers were like — I go, ‘I honestly need to talk to Camille’ — and they were like, ‘She’s afraid of you,” Brandi explained.

‘She did avoid me. I didn’t talk to her. I saw her when I walked in … I literally did not see her again the entire night.’ 

But Grammer had a different viewpoint over what went down saying ‘I didn’t tell anyone that I was afraid of you at the party? I’m perplexed.’ 

Speaking out: While on her podcast, she opened up about making amends with her friend Faye Resnick who she said made a 'mean' comment

But while her relationship with Camille may be on the rocks, she did make amends with guest star, Faye Resnick.  

‘Faye Resnick, 10 years ago said, ‘No matter how many purses you borrow, you’ll never be a lady,” before saying it was a ‘mean thing to say.’ 

‘I got wasted. I made up with Faye,’ she revealed. 

‘People hated on her. We buried the hatchet, I’m over it. I hope people give her a break because she’s just not getting one. We danced, I danced with everyone, we got along.’

His pant choice for the day seem to be the same pair that have riled fans up over the years for its tight fit on his crotch. 

A few years back the actor spoke to GQ Australia about his fan’s fascination with his lower region. 

‘It was a topic of fascination for other people, certainly not me,’ he said.

Adding: ‘By the way, as rumors go—not the worst.’

Though in 2013 he had harsher words saying  ‘Would you want people walking up to you and pointing at your d**k?’

‘I can’t believe I’m still talking about this,’ he said. ‘But I’ve worn underwear every day of my life and the fact that I’m painted as this exhibitionist is a little annoying,’

His LA outing comes after he was seen mingling with Lindsay Shookus over the weekend in NYC, after he made a surprise appearance on SNL. 

Shookus is a producer on the show and was previously linked to Ben Affleck, but has since been spotted with Jon.  

‘It did seem to be romantic between Jon Hamm and Lindsay Shookus,’ a source told Us Weekly

‘They sat next to each other and would touch each other affectionately throughout the night. However, there was no PDA.’
