I may be wrong here, but I have always pronounced segue as "segway."  Just 
checked AHD--that's an acceptable pronunciation. Straight from the Italian, 
taken from L. seguire, "to follow."

It's an awkward spelling, I'll admit, and sometimes, in writing to people, I 
put an accent over the final e.  Segway is perfectly clear.
