Valentina’s elimination was hands down the most shocking one during Season 9, if not throughout the history of RuPaul’s Drag Race. When RuPaul stopped the lip sync to instruct Valentina to remove her mask, I squealed. Then when she initially refused, I died. Great television. What followed was a half-assed lip sync of Ariana Grande’s “Greedy” which lead to Valentina sashaying away.
During “Lip Sync For Your Wife,” on Watch What Happens Live, Detox, Noel Leon and Valentina competed against each other to deliver the best lip sync to a single by a Real Housewives cast member. Detox took on Countess Luann’s “Chic, C’est La Vie” while Noel Leon and Valentina tackled Melissa Gorga’s “On Display” and Erika Jayne’s “Pretty Mess” respectively.
In the end, Valentina didn’t win, but it was some sort of redemption from her disappointing lip sync on RuPaul’s Drag Race. Had she turned in something like this, she would’ve stayed over Nina Bo’nina Brown. Watch all the action go down below.
