Start your engines folks. There’s going to be plenty of shade during this summer. Logo just revealed all the queens returning for the second installment of RuPaul’s All Stars Drag Race.

“The girls dropped whatever they were doing to do this,” RuPaul told EW.com. “We’ve got a hundred girls now, so we could pretty much do All Stars forever.”

Surprisingly, there are only 10 alums returning to compete again. I naturally assumed there would be 12 like the first season. Season 5 is the most represented with four cast members. The most old-school alum, Tatianna, comes from Season 2

“The world needs these queens now more than ever,” declared RuPaul. “We take great pride in providing a platform for our all stars to shine bright. Because fierce is fierce is fierce is fierce is fierce is fierce.”

Season 2 of All-Stars kicks off with a supersized 90-minute premiere on August 25. Check out the entire cast below. Be sure to weigh in on which queen will snatch the elusive crown and title of “America’s next drag superstar” this go-round.

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.

I totally party fouled guys! I totally missed my Wednesday interview with Coco and had to do it yesterday which is why we are a day late. WHOOPS! At least we got something. The most polarizing cast member this season of RuPaul’s Drag Race, I chatted with Coco about her mutual respect for Alyssa Edwards, what she though her hardest challenge was, her Vegas show and which queen she thought was her biggest competition.

Take a listen below and come back on Tuesday to see my thoughts on the newest episode!
Interview after the jump…

It’s the makeover episode! I guess this season we have the family member, it’s not really specific as to what family member with the made over partners because we got a wide array of ages right? Let’s start at the beginning shall we?

The Mini Challenge this week was working out with boobs or something. I find it so pointless when they do challenges like this, I have no idea what it has to do with anything but whatever. So the winner of the mini challenge was Alaska. After her win we find out who the queens are making over, and it’s OUT ARMY VETS! DADT was repealed so that is what they latched onto this year. I LIVED for these army queens honestly, so so so funny. Some of them were just SUCH queens like the one Detox got paired up with. Honey she just wanted to get into some pumps as soon as she good (CHECK YOUR DRAG DETOX!!!)

Honestly a week without RuPaul’s Drag Race was torture. I can’t believe how boring Monday nights are without it, I have no idea what’s going to happen in May once the show is totally over.

After a week off I was ready for these bitches to turn it, and they did. This week was another group challenge and it was very clever: a TELENOVELA, hysterical. First though we had the mini challenge which was a crying on cue challenge, however Detox made it very real when she talked about her ex boyfriend who has died, a very real vulnerable moment for the strong Detox was incredibly beautiful. She had won the mini challenge along with Alyssa.

The queens were separated into two groups with Detox and Alyssa being captains. Detox has reassembled Rolaskatox and Alyssa got Coco and Jynkx who have been having some drama. The telenovela was directed by RuPaul and legend Maria Conchita Alonso with a special appearance by Wilmer Valderama who despite being a Latin star was absolutely beige in this challenge, yawn.

Lots happened in this episode. Alaska finally won a challenge, we have a possible new showmance, and once again Coco was acting like a FOOL because she’s a big baby!

After last week’s non elimination the queen’s were getting a bit restless with it still being the top 7 but what are you gonna do. We had a nice little confession from Roxxxy saying that she targets Jinkx as a way of lashing out so I’ll give her points for owning up to it, but this episode again seemed to be all about just hating on Jinkx, especially from baby Coco. We’re going to get to that later, we gotta talk about what happened during the main challenge.

After a mini challenge with a bunch of Andrew Christian models (Memory with underwear) the main challenge was revealed: Create your own fragrance, design the bottle and shoot a commercial. I was definitely into it. It was going to be interesting to see who could pull it out creatively. As the work starts I noticed a little spark between Ivy and Jinkx which was really cute! We later find out that Jinkx has a total crush on Ivy…CAN YOU IMAGINE! A LOVE CONNECTION ON DRAG RACE! I AM INTO IT DARLING!

RuPaul’s Drag Race 5 Episode 7: RuRoast

In: Tommy D, TV Shows

I LOVED THIS EPISODE! It was SO funny and it was such a good idea for the “live audience” episode that they do once a season usually. It was also the reading challenge which I’m happy to say this season was amazing. Everyone did a good job and Alaska outshone them all. It was also the episode where Alaska separated herself from Ro-Laska-Tox which was the little girl group of Roxxxy, Alaska ans Detox. Last week Michelle made it clear that cliques weren’t the way to go so she decided to go Beyonce on their ass, and she won a mini challenge.

However the mini challenge doesn’t really mean anything because the MAIN CHALLENGE is what’s important. The challenge this week was the RuPaul Roast! YES! They all had to come up with jokes to roast RuPaul, all the judges and each other. This was going to be a very important challenge because if you can’t read a bitch as a drag queen, what are you doing in drag? (Ok so it’s not THAT important, but it is a good skill to have).
