One of the coolest days my “wife” Anna and I had was the day we spent networking and doing some interviews. I was very lucky enough to get to go to the World Of Wonder offices. Now for many it might not be THAT important, but for me it was a very special day. I LOVE World of Wonder. I have been a fan of their’s for years. They have in my opinion the best blog on the internet (aside from Homorazzi, of course) the WOW report, they are the creators and producers of RuPaul’s Drag Race and Drag U, and are also the brains behind some of the best movies and documentaries and reality shows out there. Yes this was a big day for me.
To say that I was nervous was a bit of an understatement, but it wasn’t a bad nervous. As Anna and I parked our car and met up with Pete I was getting juiced. We walked onto the main floor and I started to see all my favourite bloggers (James St. James, Stephan Saban) and photos and posters of all the WOWlebrities on the walls. Our first assignment was to look through their new book The World according to Wonder which was a 21 year history of the production company. So Peter sat us down as a desk (which we later found out was RuPaul’s desk, NO BIG DEAL!!!) and we went through the book. It was incredible, everyone is in it. Seriously like everyone. From the biggest stars to the in house staff, everyone. Funny story, as we were reading I heard JAMES ST JAMES doing a Celebrity receptionist of the Day and it was The Beekman Boys, but I was too scared to even peak around the corner! Totally regret it.
Watch out middle America! RuPaul and her drag army are slowly taking over the world. Shangela recently popped up on an episode of Glee having a fantabulous Kiki Turkey Lurkey Time. Now it’s some other drag queen’s turn to shine in the spotlight. In 2013, Happy Endings will have an extra sashay in their step.
TVLine.com first reported that this feroush queen is headed to the ABC sitcom. Here’s the interesting part. He won’t be dressing up in sequins, stilettos or caked on drag make-up. Instead, it’s an actual role and not a cameo. Reportedly, he’ll play Alex and Jane’s regular hairdresser who agrees to take on Max (Adam Pally) as a new client. This already sounds like a recipe for a hilarious disaster. Find out who it is below.
I always say we find out who the REAL stars are after the show. Who has the most commercial appeal, who is going to be seen everywhere and who gets cast in legit music videos.
RuPaul’s Drag Race LEGEND and my GIRL, the superstar that is RAVEN is the star of the new music “Feed Me Diamonds” by MNDR. When I was with her in Seattle, she kept going on about MNDR and how she was such a big fan so I’m sure this is something very special for her.
The video takes us on the journey of what it takes to transform into Raven from makeup, hair, contacts, padding and outfit. The video is flawless and the song is even better! Make sure you pick it up on iTunes HERE. Watch the video below!
A few weeks ago, the ladies competing for a place in RuPaul’s Drag Race “herstory” were announced. Now, the identities of the guest judges are revealed. Side note: Should we really classify them as judges. Perhaps, panel accessories? By now, it’s evident their input has ABSOLUTELY no weight when it comes to Ru’s final decision.
With that said, there are a few guest judges I’m looking forward to. On top of that list is the one and only villain turned fan-favorite Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Camille Grammer. Correct me if I’m wrong, but I think she might be the first one from the popular Bravo franchise to sit alongside RuPaul. Also on tap is the adorably cute Travis Wall of So You Think You Can Dance fame. As always, you have your round of usual suspects. Mike Ruiz and La Toya Jackson return for the umpteenth time. Check out the rest of the Season 5 guest judges below.
RuPaul’s Drag Race All-Star, Pandora Boxx asks, “What’s quirky, fun and loaded with gratuitous ‘package’ shots?” The answer is…her new music video!
Pandora has just released her sexy and hilarous music video for her cover of Samantha Fox‘s 80′s hit “I Wanna Have Some Fun” and the song/video also features TimPermanent. Most recently, Pandora played a nun in the last Andrew Christian video. Now, she’s the star of the video and her the backup dancers in this video include Nicco Sky, Shawn Morales, Jose Valvadia, while the assistant is played by Sam Spillman.
If you wanna have some fun, or at least watch various Pandora characters having fun with some sexy bulgie boys, check out the video below.
What in all Drag Queen hell is this all about AL & CHUCK?!?
The sponsors of RuPaul’s Drag Race and the organizers of The Drag Race cruise this December have a lot of explaining to do. Carnival Cruises has just issued a letter saying that if you’re coming on the Drag Race cruise you can’t come in drag. UM….WHAT?!?
Turns out that Al & Chuck haven’t chartered a boat or haven’t organized it to coincide with gay cruise, but have just tagged along on a regular cruise. The letter states that Carvinal is a family cruiseline with kids, and that Drag Race functions are PRIVATE functions, and only the performers are allowed to be in drag. This is unbelievable and I almost don’t even know how to respond, so I’m going to let Pandora Boxx do it…
“I was so excited to be a part of the Drag Stars at Sea Cruise and to meet so many of you in person and enjoy our time at sea together. It is so disheartening to myself and I know you too, to receive an email from Carnival Cruise Lines only a few days before that is, well, you can read it and decide for yourself. I, personally say let your freak flag fly. We should never be told how to dress, how to act and certainly ever be told not to be ourselves. Just know that we will still enjoy ourselves and party, even if it’s like 1920.”
Definitely not the person everyone wanted it to be.
As I sit here and write the review for the finale of RuPaul’s All-Stars Drag Race, I had to take a moment and figure out what angle I was going to take. I could write about how pissed off I was and rage type and make tons of mistakes, but I’ve already done that. I can write about how the fan favorites were ROBBED AGAIN but everyone else has already done that. Instead I am going to write about how absolutely disappointed I, and pretty much everyone else in the world is with tonight’s decision. But let’s recap shall we?
There was no mini challenge this week because the Final 4 had a big main challenge. It was very reminiscent of America’s Next Top Model and the go sees. The queens had to drive around LA and make 3 stops: An interview, to accept an award and finally to do a stand up routine. Before that however, each of the queens had a 1 on 1 with Sheri Oteri to run their routines and get some pointers. All of them had issues so it was hard to tell right away who was in the lead.
Yes I knew this was coming up as soon as RuPaul’s All Stars Drag Race started. Yes I was looking forward to it the absolute most, and yes I was so incredibly disappointed with the outcome of the episode. I’m going to tell you why in a BIG paragraph rant at the end but first let’s review what happened shall we?
Back in the workroom it was Rujubee and Shad left. Probably the most unsurprising final teams anyone could’ve imagined but my girls were still there so I was happy. Ru came onto the TV screen and it was all superhero talk. Yes girl I started salivating. She LOVES her superheroes and her comic books (SIDENOTE – I’ll be started a new column on Homorazzi about all that real soon), and I couldn’t wait to see what they were going to turn out. First though it was mini challenge time, BASKETBALL. While I totally don’t know what this has to do with drag I’m not going to lie, I loved it. It was hysterical. Rujubee dominated the court and won the mini challenge. Their prize? Phone calls home.
