The official premiere for A Star Is Born, which has had what feels like THE LONGEST rollout in all of movie history, happened last night at The Shrine Auditorium in LA. There were a lot of randos on the red carpet, but it turns out there were a lot of randos in the movie. We all know that it stars Lady Gaga as Ally The Ingénue and Bradley Cooper as Jackson Maine The Leather Satchel. But you might be surprised to learn that the cast also includes Andrew Dice Clay as Lorenzo The Geriatric DJ (judging from his outfit last night) and Willam Belli as Emerald The Real Star, Henny.
The Emmys introduced the category of Outstanding Reality-Competition Series back in 2003 and since then literally three shows have ever won it: The Amazing Race won 10 times, The Voice won four times and Top Chef won once. Well girl, that all changed last night. When they announced: “Category Is: Outstanding Reality-Competition Series”, Mama RuPaul stood up, Vogued for a little bit, and then sashayed over to that stage to claim her crown, honey!

Well, word travels fast and Pearl has learned that you don’t speak on Mama Ru until you’ve received every check you can in relation to your Drag Race association. An out-of-drag Pearl has posted a vid claiming that she’s been blacklisted from all things RPDR.
That loud squeal you just heard was either the sound of a spare chair being pulled over to Willam, Phi Phi O’Hara, and The Vixen’s table in drag queen detention, or that one friend who lives for RuPaul’s Drag Race drama. Season 7 co-runner-up Pearl recently spoke about her time on the show, and she’s painted RuPaul as more of a drag than a queen.
Daytime television, the Bermuda Triangle of many a celebrity career, somehow still gets into a famous person’s brain under the thought, “I’LL be the one who finally gets it right!” Everyone from dark lord Pimp Mama Kris to plain ol’ good person Meredith Vieira has tried and failed their way through daytime TV.
