Maybe you missed her on America's Got Talent as part of The Diva League's "Disturbia" drama. If so, local drag diva Akasha "You are not the father!" Cassadine is heading back to the small-screen spotlight. This time, it's with Maury Povich on his self-titled afternoon scandal show. Is she raising a dangerously overweight baby? Did she perform at an outrageous bachelor party? No and no. Miss Akasha actually filmed for an episode last month titled "We Were Geeks & Nerds, Now We're Knockouts!"

"School was kind of rough," Akasha tells Hearsay, even sharing her childhood nickname, 'Fro Daddy , for some untamed hair. No labels. Bad hair. Sensible shoes. All true! And that's just for starters. "I've always been gay and everyone knew it. I was teased and taunted by the cool kids."

Tune in to Maury on Thursday, Dec. 10, at 4 p.m. on DC50, and you'll get to see Akasha turn the tables on one of her former tormenters -- the one who actually came up with 'Fro Daddy. "I asked him to get down on his knees and apologize," she says.

You'll have to watch the show to find out if Akasha's old bully follows orders. She'll tell you right now, though, that time has not been kind to all.

"He said I was looking good. He looks about the same, got a little chunky."
