RuPaul and Michelle Visage are taking RuPaul’s Drag Race across the pond for a UK version, and I hope that one at least airs sometime NOT in this time year because I’m getting sick of Ru overload and then a 10-month weave and shade drought. Ross Matthews and Carson Kressley won’t be making the hop, but Ru and the BBC announced Alan Carr and Graham Norton will be taking over as the rotating resident judges.
Manila Luzon Showed Off The Maxi-Pad Dress That “RuPaul’s Drag Race” Producers Wouldn’t Let Her Wear
RuPaul’s Drag Race is crass, tacky, and ridiculous. And that’s a big part of why it’s a hit. We’re not watching it for our health! We’re in it for the sweaty puns, the thirsty sexual innuendos, and the pretend back-stabbing. We are also in it for the artistry, the sickening looks, and the lols, all three of which All-Stars Season 4 cuntestant Manila Luzon consistently delivers. Fans of the show probably remember her most recent runway look, a quilted pink Louis XIV inspired ensemble for the “Curves and Swerves” challenge. Well that look wasn’t her first choice. Manila recently ruvealed on Instagram that her first choice was a maxi-pad inspired number, and it was vetoed by Ru Paul for being in “bad taste.” That made me say, “I’m sorry, cum again? Have you seen your show?”
It looks like THE QUEEN is about to get a little crowded on her throne. RuPaul and her queens have saved many gay bars in the U.S. with RuPaul’s Drag Race watch parties, and they’re now going to do it on the other side of the pond. Ru announced today she’s feeding international desire and expanding her own empire with a U.K. version of Drag Race – and it sounds like there was a bidding war over what channel got to air it.
The last season of RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars aired less than eight months ago, but you can’t underestimate RuPaul’s ability to click-clack make that VH1 money. And the cast for the fourth season of All Stars was announced today (or reminded, if you spend a lot of time talking queens on Reddit) by Entertainment Weekly.
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!
Jeff Probst should be nervously sweating into his Survivor bandana today, for RuPaul is now just one award away from tying his record as the winner of the most Emmys for Outstanding Host of a Reality or Reality Competition Program. Condragulations, Ru! Jeff, enjoy what’s left of your moment; everyone knows it’s way more difficult to wrangle the emotions of a drag queen hell-bent on doing Beyoncé for Snatch Game than those of people eating flies on an island.
