Michelle Visage Interview


 OMG... It's Michelle Visage

W&W: Hi Michelle, tell us what you're currently working on? 

Michelle: it's a secret! when i am ready to let it out, i will tell you.....promise!

W&W: We had the pleasure of meeting you in Cardiff this year during 'Battle of the seasons' at The Tramshed... What're your thoughts on the Cardiff crowd?

Michelle: Cardiff was so amazing we added an extra night! I LOVE WALES and clearly, you guys love us too! Mutual love is always an awesome thing....

W&W: And you were given a portrait by yours truly, of yourself created in make up (thanks for posting it on social media by the way) what else would be fitting to create you out of? 

Michelle: I think makeup was the most fitting....but also glitter, nail polish and acrylic nail powders and let us not forget hummous.

W&W: Rupauls Drag Race really has taken over the world, 8 seasons in, what do you think makes it so special? 

Michelle: What makes it special for me is the overwhelming feeling over acceptance. The people who maybe haven't had the easiest time in life (like myself in early days) or are going through a hard time, feel a sense of family with the RuPaul's Drag Race crowd. Our fans are the best and they all have a story. What makes us special is NO ONE judges you at a show, we are there loving the same thing.

W&W: The UK really seem to have adopted you, you did great in Celebrity Big Brother, would you do more TV here? We've all heard those Drag Race UK rumours... 

Michelle: I am killing myself day in and day out to become at the very least, a part time UK'er. Mark my words, I will NOT STOP til i am back on UK telly where I belong!

W&W: You've done so much in your career to date, from your music, drag race and your book 'The Diva Rules'! Is there any goal you've yet to accomplish? Maybe a recorded duet with one of your besties Anastacia? I'm just being selfish as I'd love that! 

Michelle: Anastacia  and I have talked about it and we are both in, so I would definitely count on that one! Broadway and West End are my next goals, both of them. It's been my dream since i was a baby, it's time I make that dream come true!

Priscilla Queen Of The Desert at The Princess Royal Theatre Port Talbot

Big, Brash and Beautiful and that's just the bus!
The most fabulous bus in the world parks up at The Princess Royal Theatre in Port Talbot for five nights of outrageous fun.
We all know the story, three Drag Queens travelling across Australia in a bus called Priscilla. As musicals go this has it all, it's over the top, it's bursting with pop hits, it has enough comedy you'll be crying with laughter and enough sentiment to make you cry some more but for the majority of the show you'll be laughing and wishing you was on that stage singing along.  The Port Talbot & District Amateur Operatic Society deserve huge applause for this production, the enthusiasm and dedication to this performance was overwhelming. Huge performances from Carlton Gronow, Heflin Carwyn Rosser and Joe Crabbe who play the iconic roles of Tick, Felicia & Bernadette. Their onstage chemistry is fantastic and they provide most of the shows comedy. Everything about this production is BIG, the s…

Bernard Poyser | A Great Cardiffian

Just like everyone that knew Bernard Poyser we was devastated to hear of his sudden passing this month. Bernard was a great supporter of any event we was involved in, along with his wife Sandra and daughter Mel he volunteered every year at The Great Roath Bake Off and attended every RoathRocks gig. It was only a month ago he attended Nathan's  exhibition in the city centre, causing chaos as he manoeuvred his mobility scooter in the small exhibition area. Bernie was the life and soul of the party, always telling jokes and always laughing. We will miss the laughs, we will miss the jokes and the singing, your tales of the swinging sixties often had us in shock but always hysterics. This month we honour our friend The Cardiff Times Cardiffian Of The Month.

Bernard married Sandra in 1967 and they had Melanie and Christian in the early 70s. They lived in Roath for 44 years. (He grew up in Llanishen).
Bernard was a motor mechanic by trade.  He started working at J Sherlock and Son, Roath…

Grey at The Hilton Cardiff

Hotel restaurants often lack personality and quite frankly good food but to say we were pleasantly surprised with Grey at The Hilton is a major understatement. It's manager Pasquale Manganiello has achieved something quite unique with Grey, it has all the loveliness of a family run Bistro with friendly staff and food that can only be described as amazing.

The menu is varied and there is something for everyone. It covers all tastes including great vegetarian options. There's a fantastic selection of seafood dishes too and the portion sizes will please those with a big appetite. When food is this good size does matter.


The daily 'Specials' included lamb Cawl, always a dodgy option because nobody makes Cawl like your mum right? Well this Cawl was the best I've ever had (don't tell my mum). I recommend anyone visiting Wales to visit Grey to try this famous Welsh dish, you won't be disappointed.


For main courses we ordered Sausages and Mash and Lamb Shank. As so…
