Where is Sherry Pie Now?

Trigger Warning: This article discusses sexual assault and harassment.

Sherry Pie (real name Joey Gugliemelli) was disqualified from RuPaul's Drag Race after a series of allegations of catfishing emerged last year. It was reported that Sherry Pie, who competed in season 12 of the show, contacted five different actors by posing as a casting director named Allison Mossie and promised them roles on Broadway or HBO in exchange for compromising messages and audition tapes.

The allegations led to Sherry Pie being disqualified from the show before she even entered the Werkroom, making her the first queen ever to be removed from a season of RuPaul's Drag Race before filming had even finished. Her entire performance and confessionals were cut out of the show and she was also unable to participate in the reunion or finale.

Following her disqualification, it was revealed that Sherry Pie continued to perform in drag around New York City under the alias of "Sherry Pie." In an interview on The Tamron Hall Show, Gugliemelli addressed the allegations and claimed to have suffered from borderline personality disorder and had stopped performing after being accused of catfishing.

It's not surprising that Sherry Pie is attempting to make a comeback, but resurfacing now and giving her the spotlight without reaching out to her victims is irresponsible, immoral and wrong. Her attempt to use the #MeToo movement to further traumatize her victims is scummy and shameful. Sherry Pie needs to understand that being a drag star is not a right, but a privilege and she should be ashamed for using her platform like this.
