    She killed it during the auditions, and they didn't even bother showing her during judgement week. She didn't make the cut. But that crappy rollerblading flamer and that shitty children's choir did, along with the flaming salsa dancers.

    Rachel must have pissed wiggy off or something.

    She and Beach Avenue got fucked by AGT.

    Backstabbing is something that Wiggy's truly great at.

    Not that I give a flying fuck about AGT but just like Yucko did Butera really believe Wiggy was gonna fast track her career in anyway whatsoever? As soon as Yucko basically told the show to fuck off and went out into the real "Entertainment" business he became successful on "BrickleBerry". She might be talented but she needs to distance herself from Wiggy and all those delusional sycophants he has deepthroating him at SiriusXM.

    I'm wondering if her connection to Howard would have made things a little complicated and NBC decided to not even chance it, since wiggy had to abstain during auditions because they knew each other.

    But it's funny how last year the wig's ass doctor was highlighted and Howard ran on stage to make an ass of himself with his doctor, but Rachel got absolutely no love.

    She did?

    In any case I would pay to see her trip with a plate of nachos.

    Forgot that too. Maybe that was her mistake. Funny how Howard had no problem with all his other connections. Just her. Makes you wonder how she pissed in his cheerios.

    I saw the clip someone posted here of her performance and it really wasn't that good. Nothing on that shit show is very good but she hardly "killed it."

    Touche, but it's a matter of perspective. Amidst a sea of flaming queer rollerbladers and salsa dancers and shitty child choirs, her same old Rosie/Wanda Sykes/Whoopi/Joan routine was a bright spot in an otherwise shit filled hour.

    I hate to say this but she most likely got axed because of her age and how overweight she appears to be. There is a reason they have 3 pencil thin bimbos as judges and Howie Mandel

    Her impressions are ultimately better when they're heard, not seen. Or, if you must know, she's "got a body for radio" and I say that with all the love of jesus in his pretty blue eyes.

    I guess for me her stuff ran itself dry comedically - I want to say - 2009? 2010? Not unlike Craig Gass and a handful of others I can't be bothered to think of.

    Well, that could've played a role, but can you imagine paying to see this in Vegas? She's got great impressions, and they're good for a quick laugh, but there's no way I would pay $25+ to see this act in Vegas. Especially when there's a lot of other entertaining things well worth the higher prices.

    I wouldn't even be surprised if she smears butter on bread with her fingers. Wouldn't raise an eyebrow.

    Bingo. If you're in Vegas you may as well just see the real Wanda Sykes or Joan Rivers.

    Persona non grata on THSS now? Not because of our big girl's actions but because either the wig nixed her or didn't have the power to push her thru. Easier for the wig to ignore her and move on.

    AGT is the Gong Show with 21 century has beens If you go on it, it means your doing it as a goof, or your not very good. Poor Rachel was the later.
