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.
Everyone knows Washington, D.C., is an utter shit-show right now and on the brink of shutting down, so I’m sure everyone is hitting the bars for a stiff drink to try and drown everything out. Everyone, that is, except for Nancy Pelosi. The House Minority Leader comes from San Francisco, and I assume everyone in San Francisco prefers to unwind in the Castro at a good ol’ fashioned drag night (lucky bitches) with some sequins and carefully tucked peen. Thus, Nancy will appear on the upcoming season of RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars as a guest judge! Continue reading
It’s not often that the universe conspires to do us a favor but it must feel really sorry for us right now because it’s thrown us a tasty bone. I nearly plotzed (oh who am I kidding, I plotzed like a bitch) when I read in Entertainment Weekly that one of my favorite shows of all time, America’s Next Top Model was going to have a crossover episode with my absolute favorite show of all time RuPaul’s Drag Race in it’s upcoming Cycle 24. As we already know, Tyra Banks is back, and joining her will be Noted Fashion Photographer Nigel Barker, Ashley Graham, and Drew Elliott. Also, since both ANTM and Drag Race are on Vh1 now, there will be a crossover episode starring Katya, Valentina and Manila Luzon.
Since season 6 of RuPaul’s Drag Race ended, it feels like we’ve all had dozens of birthdays, the Duggars have birthed out 90 more children and we all have grey pubes. It feels like it’s been decades since Drag Race has graced our screens. To quote Old Rose in Titanic: “It’s been 84 years…” But bitch is finally come back.
On March 2nd, Drag Race will serve up more C.U.N.T. (charisma, uniqueness, nerve and talent) but they’ll do it without Santino Ross there to look the queens up and down with his droopy dog eyes. Drag Race is cutting out a whole lot of Rice from their diet for season 7. Santino Rice has been replaced by Carson Kressley and Ross Matthews, the dude who holds the Guinness World Record for being called “mam” at fast food drive-thrus at least two thousand times. Carson and Ross at the same judges’ table?! If Ru wanted to put together the most hyper humans on Earth, she needs to give herself a victory pat on the taint, because she achieved her mission. RIP to my TV speakers, because Ross and Carson are going to blow those whores out. If Ross and Carson ever argue at the judges’ table, it’s going to sound like the time I was in TopShop at The Grove and some chick’s Pomeranian and Chihuahua started fighting in her purse. I’m guessing future Celebrity Big Brother UK winner Michelle Visage kept a rhinestone-encrusted taser at her side just in case she needed to tame those hyper bitches.
Santino Rice will be back as a guest judge, though. Other guests judges are: original judge Merle Ginsburg, Ariana Grande Latte, John Waters, Olivia Newton-John, Rebecca Romjin, Jessica Alba, Demi Lovato, Scary Spice, Tamar Braxon, Kathy Griffin, Isaac Mizrahi, Kat Dennings, Michael Urie, Rachael Harris, Alyssa Milano, Lucian Pine and Jordin Sparks.
They had me at Olivia. Newton. John. And I’m surprised Isaac Mizrahi found time to guest judge in between teaching astronomy classes at MIT.
