Mary Murphy: Ex-Manager Probably to Blame

HollywoodNews.com: The internet has been abuzz with reports that Mary Murphy is en route out of “So You Think You Can Dance,” and Mia Michaels is returning to replace her. Don’t believe them, according to Murphy. “Whatever you hear this entire summer, it’s probably going to come from my ex-manager,” she tells us. “And you’re probably going to keep hearing things too, because we’re in a legal matter and it’s all about money. It has nothing to do with Fox, nothing to do with Mia Michaels.”

The ebullient dance icon with the 20 megaton laugh isn’t laughing when she adds that “managers taking money from people is the oldest story in the book in this business, but I never thought it would happen to me.”

She’s determined not to be “one of those people who pay someone to go away. That’s not me. I’m Irish. I’m in it for the long haul.” She talks about taking her case to court, where, she declares, she is confident she would win.

But in the meantime, Murphy says she won’t be surprised if there’s some sort of new flap every week just before she goes on the air on “SYTYCD” — which is now into this season’s live performance episodes.
