Because there’s never enough Drag Race content (another season of All-Stars, a second season of British version, the upcoming Canadian series, and, of course, the current twelfth season), VH1 has dropped the trailer for Rupaul’s Secret Celebrity Drag Race. The four-part special event, which was announced last fall, will premiere Friday, April 24th, right after an episode of Drag Race: Classic ft. the Messily Edited Out Predator Sherry Pie. The show will feature queens giving drag makeovers to A-list (HA!) celebs.
You might say, “excessive!”, but I say, “hey, what the fuck else am I doing in this pandemic?” Here’s the trailer.
I spy a Jersey Shore type. And how much do you wanna bet the tall male silhouette is Jerry O’Connell? I also predict there will be some major Masked Singer crossover: Dr. Drew, Margaret Cho, Johnny Weir, and, of course, reality icon Tori Spelling. Basically anyone who would volunteer as tribute if they did a Surreal Life reboot (paging VH1!). One thing’s for sure, Patricia Quinn will NOT be there. Not unless she suddenly “sashays away” to the big runway in the sky, and RuPaul does a very special tribute to Weekend At Bernie’s.
But can’t RuPaul use some of that fracking fortune to entice some actual A-listers to come on the show? What I wouldn’t give to see Justin Bieber in full female form. With his high cheekbones and soft features? And maybe if Leonardo DiCaprio did drag and took a look in the mirror, he’d realize that women in their forties aren’t so scary after all!
