NEW ORLEANS, LA – She’s known on the burlesque circuit as Ruby Rage, the Country Cutie. And this ruby-haired cutie from Amarillo is also known for her curves.
Now, it seems, those curves that delighted fans in New Orleans are a bit too much for one burlesque house. Lucky Pierre’s on Bourbon Street won’t let her on its stage.
Ruby, whose real name is Brittany Ford, revealed her tale to 21st Century Burlesque. She said Lucky Pierre’s informed her dance company, The Blue Book Cabaret, that she couldn’t be part of their performances because her body type is not right for burlesque.
At first, Lucky Pierre’s posted a denial on its Facebook page, but now that page no longer exists, stripped of its content.
Right now, the only acts Lucky Pierre’s is putting on are drag shows http://luckypierresnola.com/shows by The Real Drag Queens of New Orleans.
Yeah, Ruby Rage may be packing some extra pounds, but it’s safe to say the drag queens at Lucky Pierre’s are also packing something extra.
