Say twaaaat? Two RuPaul’s Drag Race blog entries two days in a ROW? I couldn’t resist. Why just today I was recommending this show to one of my patients, who told me that she “loves drag queens”. She cited “Kinky Boots” as a favorite movie, so it seemed necessary to tell her about the best reality show EVER: RuPaul’s Drag Race.
Last night we watched Episode 9 of Season 6: “Queens of Talk”, featuring guest judges Georgia Holt (Cher’s mother!), Chaz Bono, and Paula Abdul. The queens had to host a talk show and interview Georgia and Chaz. The best interviewers turned out to be BenDeLaCreme and Courtney Act, who showed interest in both her interviewees (and empathy!), didn’t appear nervous at all, and rightly won the challenge.
Highlights included RuPaul’s faaaaabulous 1960′s-esque final runway outfit (loved it loved it loved it), Darienne Lake’s awful elephant outfit (why was she not read for those damn tusk earrings already?), Paula’s immobile face, and a new term to add to your Drag Vocab: “meaty tuck“. The final lip sync was between Jocelyn and Trinity to Paula’s “Vibeology” (which has been stuck in my head ever since), and it was an AMAZING lip sync. In the end it was Trinity who got the boot, which I had been anticipating for the last couple of weeks anyway…although I must say, her animal-inspired runway outfit was fierce.
Phew! It gave me great pleasure to recommend this show to someone today…she even took notes! Probably the highlight of the day…today at work was a little stressful. Eh, some coffee, a little dog walk, Blogilates and Mulligatawny soup tonight and I’ll be ready for Friday tomorrow. Friday already, good grief! This next week is going to FLY.
Join me tomorrow and hopefully I’ll be posting the gorgeous tulip photos from last weekend.
