RuPaul’s Drag Race contestant Robbie Turner has finally come clean about that mysterious Uber accident she reported on social media. Robbie somehow got Entertainment Weekly to conduct an exclusive interview, the results of which are riddled with inconsistencies and sprinkled liberally with WTFs. Ultimately, Robbie says she was drugged (possibly, maybe) and had “a very vivid dream”. Robbie also took the opportunity to take her critics to task for “calling out” which she says is the new bullying.
Season 8 RuPaul’s Drag Race contestant Robbie Turner, whose actual name is Jeremy Baird, might be the fishiest queen in Drag Race herstory. And that’s not because Robbie’s tuck is sublime, it’s because a story Robbie posted on Twitter and Facebook about getting into a fatal accident while riding in an Uber, sounds fishy as fuck.
The 10th season of RuPaul’s Drag Race is only two episodes in, and already we’ve got more memes than RuPaul has blonde wigs. There’s Miss Vanjie’s backwards exit, Money X Change’s sponges, The Vixen’s note, THE ANKH. And now we’ve got Blair St. Clair getting meta by recreating one of this week’s most popular memes, the yodeling Walmart kid.
While Shangela is off telling Hillary Clinton to keep that guest house in Chappaqua open so she could move in and write What Happened 2: The Shangela Story, RuPaul seems ready to forget all about RuPaul’s Drag Race: All Stars 3 and move ahead to season 10 of Drag Race. Christina Aguilera popped by to be the first guest judge, but it was a little bit of tea dropping after the show that got bits in a bunch. Continue reading
It seems like it was just yesterday when we were all taking in the Vaseline-smeared no-budget glamour of the first season of RuPaul’s Drag Race and gagged on the 99 Cent Store eleganza as the queens sashayed down a catwalk (read: a stage made up of spray-pained cardboard boxes) under factory-defected flood lights from Home Depot while battling for a prize package worth (insert the amount of three lipsticks and a half-used bottle of perfume from Big Lots). But now Drag Race is a fancy bitch, and the queens no longer have to knife fight hobos for the use of a gas station bathroom across the street from the rec center they used to shoot in. With that said, season 1 will forever be my favorite.
Joining the usual judges for season 10 will be guest judges: SHANIA TWAIN, Courtney Love, Ilana Glazer, Abbi Jacobson, Audra McDonald, Ashanti, Kate Upton, Billy Eichner, Halsey, Andrew Rannels, Tisha Campbell-Martin, Padma Lakshmi, Kumail Nanjiani, Emily Gordon, *prepare to let out a sloppy groan* Lena Dunham *and groan* and Xtina who looks like Princess Lolly in Mariah Carey drag. Many past Drag Race queens, including Alyssa Edwards, will drop in. The trailer for season 10 probably cost more than the entire budget of season 1, and then some.
Xtina is the first guest judge, and I heard that she wasn’t the first choice. RuPaul had wanted true Drag Race legend and mega superstar, Ornacia, to be the first judge, but she was already booked for something else so they had to settle for Xtina. Xtina stopped on over while on her way to do some grocery shopping. Yeah, that’s why she looks so casual.
There has been some major RuPaul’s Drag Race debate drama lately, and I’m not talking about whether it was a mic cord or a popped tuck that made a surprise appearance on last week’s episode (it was totally a cord). RuPaul recently did an interview with The Guardian to promote the upcoming 10th season of RPDR. Unfortunately, Ru said some things about trans women that could be classified as some of the most regrettable stuff to come out of RuPaul’s mouth since Trixie’s Snatch Game impression.
