If you don’t want to know how Rupaul’s Dragrace season 12 ends…DON’T READ ANY FURTHER….
NOW…if you are curious…one of the finalists gets DISQUALIFIED!
YUP… Sherry Pie makes it to the finale…where there will be four finalists again…but she gets dq’ed for the oddest reason…
Here is the scoop!
A New York City performer named Daniel Marandola on Friday joined seven others in accusing Sherry Pie, a contestant on RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 12, of duping him by posing as a well-connected casting director searching for the lead actor in what was billed as a new production called “Bulk.”
As a result of the accusations, a spokesperson for VH1 told NBC News that Sherry Pie, whose real name is Joey Gugliemelli, will be removed from the live finale of “RuPaul’s Drag Race,” where the queen was supposed to compete as one of the final four contestants.
“In light of recent developments and Sherry Pie’s statement, Sherry Pie has been disqualified from ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race.’ Out of respect for the hard work of the other queens, VH1 will air the season as planned. Sherry will not appear in the grand finale scheduled to be filmed later this spring,” the statement said.
Sherry has since apologized….cause that makes all ok in these times, right? *wink wink*
Buzzfeed News published a report on late Thursday with accounts from five actors who claim they were catfished and coaxed into providing humiliating and degrading “audition” tapes by Gugliemelli, who posed as a casting director called “Allison Mossey” in email interactions between 2015 and 2017, and as Mossey’s production assistant for in-person filming sessions. According to Buzzfeed, none of the men ever met Allison Mossey in person. Two more accusers came forward on Friday, bringing the total number who spoke to Buzzfeed to seven.
NBC News spoke to four of the seven Buzzfeed News accusers, as well as Marandola, who says his interactions began in August 2018 with a person going by the name Allison Mossey and ended in December 2019 when he confronted Gugliemelli about the Mossey persona.
So Willem….you are now not alone in the DQ BOX….
Unfortunate turn of events, because she was an early frontrunner to snag the crown…
Maybe she will turn up again later in an over-sized box somewhere in another season of the popular reality show….
