Michele was born in Eastern Kentucky and has been fascinated with celebrities for as long as she can remember.
Moving to Los Angeles fifteen years ago, she began her Hollywood career as an entertainment industry make-up artist painting some of the most famous faces in the business.
A chance encounter brought her to the world of home shopping where she spent several years selling jewelry to U.S. audiences.
Little did she know that her on camera experience was preparing her for her roll as a Hollywood gossip girl down under.
