Well, is it already time for the RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 5 cast?
Over the past few days there was a scavenger hunt over the web to find the new queens, totally a cute idea. It was over RPDR, Logo, NewNowNext Facebook pages, Tumblrs, Twitters and Instagrams. I just waiting for one of my FB friends to upload them all and voila (THANKS LOUIE!)
The styling theme for this season was Greek goddesses, or deities. It worked for some but not for other. One thing I am happy about is that there is a contestant from SEATTLE! Finally someone from the Pacific Northwest There were some surprises, some not so surprises and a few people left out who I thought were for sure on it (Mayhem? Rhea?) Do you want the list? Here it is!
Our latest Homorazzi episode just aired yesterday on OUTtv with Tommy, Nic, Patrick and Adam (shown above, from left to right). In case you missed it (or if you’re not in Canada), we’ve got the full episode for you to check out below. This was our eighth episode and we definitely had a lot of fun with it.
After sharing our Halloween costumes with you, we move into Gossip and discuss the rumor that Jessica Simpson’s dad is gay. One of the four panelists admits that he finds Joe Simpsons attractive and perhaps has a little crush on him.
In Music, we talk about No Doubt‘s controversial music video and Christina Aguilera’s new Lotus album, which quickly turns into why Tommy thinks Aguilera is “TOO MUCH!” As we delve into Movies, we zone in on the biggest movies of the moment, Skyfall and Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 2.
Moving onto TV (which Adam & Tommy watch A LOT of), the first show to be discussed is The New Normal. “Nene Leakes is turning me out,” says Tommy. Nic tries to say something is “turning him out” later in the episode, but it doesn’t go so well. LOL. Other shows discussed include American Horror Story, The Walking Dead, DTLA, and RuPaul’s Drag Race All-Stars.
After last week’s ridiculous challenges, Episode 4 was a breath of fresh air.
Going back into the workroom this week the queens discussed the Bottom 2 again and how team Rujubee felt. Needless to say they were not featuring it for obvious reasons, and the teams were surprised that Yarlexis was still in the running.
I’m going to take a moment before I start reviewing the episode because I think team Yarlexis needs to be defended a bit. Who cares if they can’t speak Wnglish well, and I’m sorry I don’t think Yara was carrying Alexis through the challenges. I personally think the pair has been doing very well, and they are very well matched. And correct me if I am wrong but I believe that they have actually won the most challenges, and tonight was no different.
The mini challenge this week was about READING, but with a twist. Each team had to come up with a cheer about reading the other teams. It was team YARLEXIS that won and it was with the simple read of: Knock Knock. Who’s there? SHANNEL…Shannel who?…EXACTLY!
FINALLY! FINALLY FINALLY FINALLY!
I didn’t get her during s3, I didn’t get her during Drag U but I finally got an interview with MANILA LUZON! Arguably one of the most popular queens to ever grace the RPDR runway, Manila took some time this morning to chat with me!
Yes, I woke her up (blame the agents booking the interviews) from partying it up after Obama won the election last night, but this was one of my favourite interviews ever. I couldn’t stop laughing the whole time. Manila dishes on all of the eliminated contestants, and some of the ones that are still in it. She also explains how her new music video with Latrice Royale came to be.
Take a listen to it below, and don’t forget to buy “THE CHOP“…available on iTunes!
First of all let me say sorry for my lack of review last week. I was drunk with Team RUJUBEE in Seattle. Like really drunk. Like we were all blind by the end of the night drunk. Oy vey, but I’m back this week in full force and ready to spill the T.
I want to start off my saying that tonight’s episode was really weird. Yes it was funny because who doesn’t love seeing Shannel walk on all four and bark like a dog, but to me I don’t understand what this had to do with being a drag queen. I also have some insider information that I will divulge later, but overall this entire episode was very fishy…and not in a good way.
Back in the work room after the last elimination of team Brown Flowers (NOT CUTE! I pegged Nina to be a finalist, she is the fiercest from that show EVER) we learned of the next mini challenge; taking butch queen realness photos. Sure…why not? They’ve done pretty much everything else they could why not just take some weird man photos. Yarlexis took this and I don’t even remember what their prize was? (Was there a prize?)
OK! We’re gonna go for round 2 with Mimi Imfurst…and this time it totally recorded YEAY!
Sorry for the lack of REVIEW (I’m not going to say recap anymore because I got my head bitten off when my recap included my opinions about the show. YIKES!) this week. I was down in Seattle from Sunday until Tuesday hanging out with Team RUJUBEE, as you can see in the photo below.
I know you’re jealous…it’s totally fine I would be too. It was actually my first time meeting Raven and she’s everything, honestly so funny. So yeah we were there for a couple days and watched the episode there, and by the time I got back and sobered up (which took me at least 2 days…Americans free pour btw) It was Thursday and a review would be silly.
BUT I haven’t completely dropped the ball this week, I’ve got two interviews for you to listen to. We re-recorded an interview with Mimi since last week it didn’t record, and I also spoke to Miss TAMMIE BROWN, and let me tell you she spills the T. I am working on getting Nina as soon as I can, but that bitch Sandy has messed up a lot of people…Nina is coming I promise.
Well lookie here! I didn’t think we were going to get them this season but HUZZAH! We’re getting ALL-STAR interviews…BONUS!
Early this morning I chatted with the glorious Pandora Boxx and the amazing Mimi Imfurst after they were eliminated from the premiere episode of RuPaul’s Drag Race All-Stars. We chatted about All-Stars, the pairing system and their new singles. Both of them have recently released a track and they are both great. Pandora Boxx’s is called “Nice Car” and Mimi Imfurst’s (as part of Xelle) is called “Queen“. Unfortunately, we ran into a glitch and the interview with Mimi Imfurst didn’t record (insert sad face here). In place, we’ve included her amazing new music video which also features many of the other contestants from All-Stars as well as her two other Xelle counterparts. If you haven’t downloaded it yet, do it. Check back next week for my recap on Episode 2 as well as my interview with the eliminated contestants.
Take a listen, and remember to check back next week for more ALL STARS!
Listen to the interviews after the jump…
Let me preface this post by saying that I know my public persona is shallow. I don’t really like talking about anything political because I feel my choices are my own. I don’t really like to blog or post about marriage equality or the fight for our rights because for me I’d rather just do something than talk about doing something. On our show HOMORAZZI (Which you can watch HERE) I can throw down about gossip, television, movies the latest dramz between celebrities and I can talk about any party I’ve ever been until I’m blue in the face. But I’m always shied away from really serious topics probably because I’m not a very serious person publicly.
When Hillary Clinton gave that amazing speech, I was late to that party. When Sally Field gave her speech I was also late to that party. I watched and listened and really appreciated what they had to say. Bringing awareness to such important issues is amazing, but it wasn’t until this morning when I watched Lana Wachowski’s acceptance speech for the HRC Visibility Award that I finally decided it was time to say something about it.
