Here’s something fabulous from the Midnight Snack archive! Michelle catches up with show-stopping drag queen and actor, the hilarious and electric SHANGELA! These two talk about how they’re skeletal opposites, various run-ins with the iconique Jennifer Hudson, Shangela’s incredible tenure at TGI Friday’s, and most importantly… going on a date with PATTI LABELLE as your third wheel. Plus, Michelle and her sidekick Dan sound off about terrible hotels, AirBNB squabbles and an advice column that answers the question “Is it weird to ask my friends for their body parts?” Will Michelle really do anything for a part? Hmm.
