RuPaul’s Drag Race: You Betta Work!
Last night, “RuPaul’s Drag Race” premiered on LOGO and since then I’ve been strutting around my apartment trying to impersonate female impersonators. Those girls have got it going on! When the contestants were all hosed down washing cars for their first photo shoot, not one of those hos lost their makeup. While I get runny mascara if I just break a sweat, the drenched drag stars were still flawless! How do they do it?! (See video above) The contestants are full of surprises, just like the show. Although there is one particular casting that stood out — Santino Rice from “Project Runway” is a judge. Sadly, he’s total d-bag as a panelist. Bummer. I liked him better when he was impersonating the gentleman judge, Tim Gunn. But RuPaul has been lifted up to where she belongs, as the mother hen of how to work it! She advises the glitterati as a man, but then snaps into her persona once they’re all gussied up. Her delivery is as strikingly seductive as her look. Glowing in soft light and blonde curls, Ru looked straight into the camera as she said to the two contestants facing elimination: “Lip sync — for your life!” All hail the Queen!
