In: Donovan, Fashion

Are you in need of a RuPaul’s Drag Race fix until Season 6 premieres? Look no further. A few of your favorite alums from the reality show strutted their stuff for Marco Marco during LA Fashion Week. His designs have been worn by the likes of Nicki Minaj, Fergie and Selena Gomez to name a few.

The show was so fierce Adam Lambert and Lindsay Lohan attended the extravaganza. Alyssa Edwards, Shangela, Yara Sofia, Carmen Carerra, Raja, Manila Luzon, Willam and Detox brought the designer’s latest collection to life. For your added enjoyment, a few shirtless male models were thrown in the mix. Check it out below.

Spend Thanksgiving With Alysssa Edwards @ Oasis

In: Donovan, Totally GAY!

I can’t think of a better way to spend the night before gorging on copious amounts of turkey than meeting Alyssa Edwards in person. Girlfriend was the STAR of RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 5. B.Ames’ fan-made remix incorporating all her priceless one-liners is everything. I play it nonstop.

The entertainer extraordinaire hits Vancouver this weekend to perform at Oasis Ultra Lounge. Fellow writers Tommy and Matt are bringing her for one amazing night on Saturday, October 12. Tickets are only $20. Be sure to get there early as I’m sure this is going to sell out. DJ Domtop will be spinning all your favorite tracks while you enjoy $5 drink specials all night. Click here for more details.

To tell the “trooooooooth” (in Cher’s voice), I’m surprised this didn’t happen sooner. It’s a match made in heaven.

LOGO enlisted some of the more popular alums of RuPaul’s Drag Race to film a music video for Cher’s latest dance hit “Woman’s World.” Naturally, Chad Michaels is front and center since she’s most known for her Cher impersonations. The All-Stars winner channels the dance diva by wearing her infamous attention-grabbing Academy Awards outfit.

Joining Michaels in the clip are Shangela, Manila Luzon, Willam and Alyssa Edwards. Both Shangela and Manila look to Cher’s music videos for inspiration, picking looks from her “If I Could Turn Back Time” and “Believe” clips. Alyssa serves up Mermaids Cher realness, while Willam goes old school, harkening back to the 67-year-old icon’s “Half-Breed” era. Check out the homage visual below.

RuPaul’s Drag Race 5: And The Winner Is…

In: Tommy D, TV Shows

Well it’s here. After months of competition, a couple weeks of reruns and recaps, endless drama and some of the best/worst drag I’ve seen on tv we have a winner for the 5th season of RuPaul’s Drag Race. Before we get to the winner let’s recap a bit or the reunion shall we?

As is tradition we have a reunion episode where we get one last moment to see our Season 5 queens on the tube before they disappear into reality TV history (except for Alyssa, who is getting her own spinoff ALLEGEDLY!). I have to tell you I actually completely forgot that half of those queens were even on the show. But I guess that’s what happens when you get eliminated at the beginning.

RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 5 comes to a close tonight. Who will take it all? Alaska, Jinkx Monsoon or Roxxy Andrews? Before RuPaul crowns “America’s Next Drag Superstar” and “Miss Congeniality,” all fourteen queens sit down to rehash all the drama served throughout the season. And there was plenty of it.

With regards to any reality show, it’s all about the reunion shows. After seeing all the confessionals, I’m sure all the queens will have plenty to say. The reunion special where the winner was announced taped on May 1. All the Season 5 contestants along with fan favorites from previous years donned their fiercest outfits on the red carpet. I personally liked Detox’s look the best. I literally had to do a double take when I saw her monochromatic makeup. I thought it was due to some black and white Photoshop magic. Alas it was all her. Check out all the looks below from this season’s crop and cast your vote on who werked it out the best.

Confession time. With exception to only a couple of episodes, I haven’t really been watching Season 5 of RuPaul’s Drag Race. The only way I keep up to date with everything is from Tommy’s weekly interviews with the eliminated queen. Based on his level of excitement for the phone call and line of questioning, I can pretty much figure what transpired. After watching this brilliant fan video, I’m making it a priority to watch the fabulousness that is Alyssa Edwards.

B. Ames remixed all of Alyssa’s memorable quotes from this season and created an awesome little track called “Drop Dead Gorgeous.” Keeping it real, it’s a lot catchier than most of the produced singles by former Drag Race contestants. Props to Matthew Bell as well for editing such an entertaining music video.

It’s easy to see why Alyssa Edwards is a fan favorite. With her hilarious facial expressions and even more hilarious one-liners, this woman is reality gold. It’s no wonder, a rumored spinoff is in the works. RuPaul even brought Edwards with him for the MTV Movie Awards last week. When questioned why Ru invited Alyssa, he sent a tweet seemingly confirming Alyssa’s show. Check out “Drop Dead Gorgeous” below. I guarantee you’ll love it.

I woke up yesterday in an awful mood. I was cranky, I didn’t want to go for my run, I didn’t want to go to work I was just not into it.

Enter ALYSSA EDWARDS.

Now I have made it VERY clear where I stood with Alyssa from the beginning of this season, she wasn’t one of my favorites but then she grew on me and by the time she left I found myself quoting her one liners, doing the Alyssa Face in the mirror and just living for everything she was giving me on that show. We had a 20 minute interview and it is definitely in my top 5 favorite interviews ever. By the time it was over I was in a great mood.

I’m going to miss you on my TV Alyssa but because of you I now know what to say to someone when they wear too much bronzer.

GIRL, look how orange you fucking look GIRL!
