I can’t even believe it! I honestly HONESTLY cannot believe it! After 4 seasons and so many queens, RuPaul has finally got it right on the nose! Not only with the WINNER, but with the FAN FAVORITE! This year played out perfectly and I don’t think there is anyone (other than Phi Phi) who is upset by the results.
Yes kids, we have our two winners! The winner of fan favorite this year is LATRICE MOTHERF*CKING ROYALE!
And the winner of RPDR season 4, America’s Next Drag Superstar is…
We have made it to the end, or have we? I am going to be completely honest here and say that I have known who the winner was in season 2 and in season 3. I also knew who the Top 3 were this season from the beginning OK I’LL ADMIT IT! But you have to give me props for not outright spoiling it for everyone. Now while I HAD heard from a couple people that Phi Phi O’hara was declared the winner, I had also heard that they left all three hanging and were going to do a live finale. I was confused about that because let’s face it, I don’t think RPDR is at a budget to do a live show. It wasn’t until I saw Kenya Michael post on her FB today that she got her dress for the reunion show that I KNEW they didn’t have a winner. How did I know? They usually film the reunion weeks after the show, so for them to not have done it yet was fishy for me.
Who was right? I WAS! After 13 weeks, intense competition, tons of drama…we still don’t have a winner. I’m going to give a BIG kudos to RuPaul for this because while I do love knowing everything before it starts this is REALLY exciting! WHO THE HELL IS THE WINNER?!? At this point there is NO winner…and the reunion is next week! It’s. So. Freaking. Awesome.
Reality stars appearing on other reality shows is nothing new. CBS often recycles their more popular stars from “Big Brother” and “Survivor” and has them re-appear on “The Amazing Race“. Then when you factor in the three shows’ All-Stars editions, you keep seeing a few regularly. Some of them even made careers out of it. Boston Rob Mariano anyone?
While the CBS incestuous programming is not surprising, having a talented competitor appear on another show where different “talent” criteria is judged is a bit surprising. You don’t see a lot of “American Idol” and “So You Think You Can Dance” swapping, which brings me to this post.
One former “American Idol” hopeful is temporarily ditching singing and hoping to show off his lip-syncing skills, while strutting in some serious high heels instead. Have any guesses on which Idol alum yet? Well, it shouldn’t be too difficult to narrow down. First, you eliminate all the women and straight males. Then you can check off those “gay” singers who haven’t officially come out yet which brings us to probably a handful of contestants including Clay Aiken and Adam Lambert. While the latter would make a fierce drag queen, it’s not him. Here’s another hint. He appeared on Season 7 and was one of the Top 12 boys. Find out who below.
Well, she released the music video for “Glamazon” two weeks early, but I guess it doesn’t really matter since after last night’s absolutely devastating episode in which Latrice Royale was sent home, we now know who the final three are. (Pssst, I knew since before it started. I also know who wins…but I’ll save that for a different post).
As is tradition in the final challenge, the three remaining queens do all the work in a RuPaul music video while RuPaul stands in one place lip syncing her song which she probably did in only one take because she didn’t want to do more. (I kid…sort of). The music videos for these final challenges have all been kind of…bad, I gonna say bad. However, while this one may be “bad” as well, I kind of love it the most. It’s a video game themed music video with the three finalists stomping on all the former queens, as well as every single celebrity guest judge that came onto the show. It’s kind of cute, while I don’t think the finalists are the RIGHT finalists they gave a pretty good performance in this. OH! And the end is fantastic.
My heart is broken. Not only was my heart broken ONCE, but TWICE all within the same hour. First of all I found a spoiler hours before I saw the show and found out the the love of my life, my reason for tuning in every week, the best contestant this show has ever had LATRICE ROYALE was eliminated. THEN the bosses at Homorazzi told me that there would be NO INTERVIEW WITH LATRICE BECAUSE SHE WAS BUSY! Ugh as IF today’s Drag Race experience could get any worse. Ok I’m gonna try to get through this recap without breaking down.
This week’s theme was THE BITCH BALL but it’s not what you think. It all has to do with DOGS! Ok and a little bitching like in the mini challenge. Each one of the fantastic four was given a puppet of one of the other contestants. They had to drag out their puppet and do a 30 second puppet show. Brilliant. Sharon got Chad and of course played up her plastic surgery. Latrice got Sharon and did the goth thing, sadly she wasn’t very good. Chad was throwing FULL shade with the Phi Phi doll and it was hilarious, but it was definitely Phi Phi who had a Latrice doll that torn it down. Making fun of the jewelry breaking on stage…honey that shit was hilarious! Phi Phi didn’t win, Chad did and he got to choose what queen was paired up with what dog. Get it…BITCH BALL! Phi Phi got a blood hound, Latrice got a pomeranian, Chad took the Chinese crested and Sharon got a poodle, not only that but they had to do a musical number in the spirit of cats…only dogs! Oh Ru, you’re so funny!
Apparently reinterpreting Disney characters is all the rage these days. From Disney princes going shirtless, to classic heroines being portrayed as NOT living happily ever after, no one in Walt Disney’s catalogue is safe from any enterprising artist. The latest to jump on this bandwagon is Chicago vector artist Justin aka Dezignjk.
This talented individual thought it would be fun to draw a few memorable contestants from “RuPaul’s Drag Race” as infamous Disney villainesses. Let’s face it, some of those evil Disney beyotches look like busted-up drag queens, no? The pictures are so good, I hope that RuPaul really considers having this as a challenge for the upcoming All-Stars season.
The lucky queens chosen for the cartoon treatment are Manila Luzon (Season 3), Sharon Needles (Season 4), Latrice Royale (Season 4), Chad Michaels (Season 4) and Raven (Season 2). Check them out as Disney heroine foibles below and vote for your favorite.
I never know how to feel about the bring back a queen episode. I mean last year was interesting because it was Carmen Carrera who just did the revolving door thing (In and Out same episode) and this season it wasn’t any different just with Kenya. Also this year it was on the same challenge last year, the makeover challenge. This year it was DILFs or, “Dad’s I’d like to f*ck“, I MEAN FROCK! FROCK IS WHAT I MEAN!
After it was revealed that Kenya was the queen brought back (TOLD YOU SO!) and after she won the mini challenge, the queens got to see the DILF’s that they would be transforming. They were legit heterosexual fathers, and two of the were GORGEOUS! PhiPhi and Kenya’s daddy’s were pretty smoking! They had to make them over to look like their sisters, but the twist was that they both had to be pregnant! HA! Maternity wear challenge. Oh and they had to perform a strip tease, Ru just kept piling it on them this year.
During the rehearsals and workroom time we found out a few things about these dad’s. One of them knew how to tuck, one of them was dying to get into a high pair of heels, one of them was going to make a gorgeous woman, one was a complete jerk and the other looked like Latrice’s legit relative. Latrice and her dad were hilarious, and after their amazing rehearsal I for sure thought they had it in the bag. Unfortunately the old saying is true, good rehearsal BAD show.
I’m going to preface this post by saying that I have had a rotten day so if I’m a bit more sour than usual I apologize in advice (sorta). Not only that but we had to cancel our weekly viewing party chez house of D because they’re changing the pipes, in short it was already a bad scene here. Then you throw on one of the most bizarre, most useless episodes of Drag Race that I have ever seen and it pretty much solidifies the day as garbage. Honestly what the heck was that nonsense we watched tonight? Now I understand the USA is going through an election year and it’s very current but honestly, the only people I know who can make Drag and Politics work are Joan-E and Hedy Fry.
Now that Willam is gone (for reasons we’re still wondering about) the air in the work room is a bit lighter? Mainly because Phi Phi is a bit less sour. There’s confetti being thrown, and few funny insults and an ass imprint on the mirror. She Mail comes up and it’s another nonsense speech that doesn’t make sense, but you get the feel of the challenge. For the mini challenge the queen had to design a shoe that fit with a Absolut Cocktail they were paired with. I’ll cut it short and just tell you that Phi Phi won for making actually some pretty cute fruit platforms. I don’t even think she won anything did she? (someone correct me please). After the mini challenge it was time for the main challenge, which was to compete for the nomination of the Wig party, so the had to come up with a platform. Honestly it was so stupid, and so dumb because politics are tricky. If you don’t know anything about politics and debate, don’t even try to pretend. Which is why even though I HATED what Chad Michaels did, I understood why he did it.
