RuPaul's Drag Race SEASON 10 EPISODE 10 - SOCIAL MEDIA KINGS INTO QUEENS

BLONDE HIGHLIGHTS
All of it. I mean, the makeover show is always a winner and this season’s was no exception. Easily my favourite episode of this year. So many great moments, so many funny one-liners, so many fabulous looks. This process, year after year, seems to bring out the best qualities in everyone participating. It’s like Queer Eye with the brightness turned up.

FROSTY TIPS
Okay, so finally I get why they’re bitching about Aquaria. She has a real lack of empathy for what the others are going through. That said, I still don’t see it as malicious, more just a lack of judgement. And again, she at least has the emotional intelligence to learn from her what she’s done and apologise when it’s needed. More than can be said for most.

PROUDEST MARY
Asia won the night for me. Her and America served up some fucking Janet Jackson Black Cat meets Madonna Express Yourself dragliciousness. And Asia in Untucked sitting there with her titties lovin’ herself sick in that weave was too much to bear. Werk bitch! I was deceased.

LAZIEST SUSAN
Just when you thought Kameron Michaels was the worst drag name you’ve ever heard: I give you, Kelly Michaels. I mean, seriously.

LIVING FOR…
Did they drive Monet to the airport wearing a leopard onesie, a floral hat, glitter eyes and lashes, and that big old sponge dress to check in? Heaven!

SURPRISE SURPRISE!
Are we still using “proportionised”?

fetch

REALLY REAL
God it’s so tedious when those straight boys have to make a point of saying “my girlfriend” within the first 30 seconds of sitting down, right? We get it, Biff: You’re straight. Now shut up and tuck.

NOTABLE QUOTABLES
Asia: A bitch can’t even get a second chance around here without some salty ass ho tryin’a be making it about her.
Cracker: But I think if there’s anyone that could be an ambassador on what makes drag wonderful it’s me.
Kingsley: I started making videos cos I couldn’t find anyone around me that cared about, like, Britney.
Kelly Michaels to Kameron (on makeup room chatter): … they’re having so much fun, but you get to focus on being … diligent.
Monet (exiting): Cha-ching, motherfuckas! Cha-ching.

SHADIEST LADY
Cracker coming for Eufreka in Untucked was unnecessary. She was a lot more convincing than the Tracey Turnbladd wannabe you turned out.

shadiest

IT AIN’T WHAT YOU WEAR…
Eureka and Eufreka looked like a fucking babooshka doll, popping out from behind. I was just waiting for one of the Little Women of LA to then pop out from behind them.

IT’S HOW YOU WEAR IT
Anyone else ACHE for Ru’s look this week? That sequined/croc frock and the green to yellow eye was gagapalooza. I mean, that is some glamour right here. I don’t say this often but … **clenched teeth** … well done Raven.

ONE MORE THING
Can someone please make a gif of Monet swingin’ her saggy-ass boobs and calling out “Titties! Titties!” ???

YOU’RE A WINNER BABY…
You’re all gonna come for me, but I did not think this was a deserving win. Sure, I thought Cracker did an amazing job on the looks, but on the runway Cookie was like a footballer in a dress, twerking and stomping. And all that preening just made me think of Jaymes Mansfield. I just did not get this at all. Cracker finally got her win though so good for her.

BYEEEEEEE…
Kameron Michaels vs Monet X Change lip syncing to ‘Good Ass Hell’ by Lizzo:
I’ve never heard this song in my life, but I liked it a lot. I thought Monet would be all over this jam, but she didn’t seem as confident with the lyrics. I did love her leaving the stage moment and then coming back with a split leap slide to the front, but Ru just seemed confused by it.
Comparatively, Kameron lip sync’d THA FUCK outta this joint. She knew every word, every detail, every breath. I still can’t quite get my head around the fact that quiet, considered Kameron is a beast onstage. It’s unnerving to see this mild mannered introvert turn on and own it.

kameron

I mean, there was no question.
Kameron shat the bed, but then lip sync’d for her life when it really mattered.

And I am devastated Monet is gone.
But here we are.

So we have a Top 5

This is turning out to be an unusual year.

RuPaul's Drag Race - RuCap Season 10 - Episode 9 - Breastworld

BLONDE HIGHLIGHTS
Stephen Colbert’s appearance on the workroom monitor was brown cow stunning. And his tongue pop GAVE ME LIFE!

FROSTY TIPS
It began for me last week and grew throughout this episode… I am becoming immune to the whims of Miz Cracker. I don’t think she’s as good as she thinks she is, and the facade is starting to show. Anyone else with me on this?

LIVING FOR…
Can Miss Darcelle (the oldest drag queen in the world) get her own spin-off show please?

darcelle

SURPRISE SURPRISE!
Aquaria’s reveal that she’s friends with Amanda Lepore AND THAT LEPORE DOES YOGA DAILY! What the actual fuck? Can you imagine her downward dog on the mat in front of you? Namaste bitches!

REALLY REAL
I’m sorry but I just don’t buy Aquaria as the ruthless, arrogant bitch they seem to be selling her as. I get she’s abrasive at times, but as far as twinks go she seems to me one of the more committed and genuinely interested. If her biggest fault is telling the others “Yeah I’m gonna win this thing” then I don’t get what their problem is, cos they’ve all said it at one time of another.

SHADIEST LADY
Visage needs to calm down on the eyeliner. Is Bianca painting her? She looks like someone gouged her eyeballs out.

ep9

NOTABLE QUOTABLES
Ru to Monet: I know you love that pussycat wig, but bitch you know that you need to wear some big-ass hair cos you got that big fat juicy ass!
Miz Cracker (trying to psych herself up on set): I will sell this house today!
Asia (discussing queens back home): Bitch these motherfuckin’ men in wigs in here really do care about me.
Ru (on Aquaria’s runway): For a 21-year old that IS her idea of what she’s gonna look like in 50 years.
Asia (to Eureka): I’m gonna hug yo neck!
Monet: Gurl, she don’t have no neck.

PROUDEST MARY
Sure, the drama’s been dialled down a bit now Vixen’s gone, but wasn’t it nice to watch Untucked and, for just 5 minutes, instead of intense confrontation have someone say “I love and respect you all” the way Eureka did?

LAZIEST SUSAN
I’m so over Ru perpetuating the “Beyonce Myth” that the women around her are inconsequential. Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams are amazing, and should not be referred to as “the other girls from Destiny’s Child”. And again I’d just like to point out that Michelle Williams – the so-called religious freak that now does gospel albums! – is the only DC member to have judged on Drag Race. At the very least she deserves a proper namedrop, RuPaul.

IT AIN’T WHAT YOU WEAR…
Eureka’s apricot shift dress and dolly pink blush in the BreastWorld video was too much for UHD TV to deal with. My flatscreen said “It doesn’t look like anything to me!” and then shut the fuck down.

eureka

IT’S HOW YOU WEAR IT
The Mini Challenge matching the Pit Crew by their underwear… I mean, give me strength! That big ole Number 17 Joe Manganiello looky-likey gave this thirsty bitch all the feels. Cleanup in aisle five!

pitcrew

ONE MORE THING
Cracker’s sister looks like Beanie Feldstein.

YOU’RE A WINNER BABY…
Asia got her second win and more power to her. She was fab as the rightwing nut-job character in BreastWorld. I personally don’t think Asia was better than Aquaria, but I also think Michelle Williams is better than Beyonce so what do I know?

winner

BYEEEEEEE…???
Kameron Michaels vs Eureka O’Hara lip syncing to ‘New Attitude’ by Patti LaBelle:
I’d just like to preempt this by saying Patti LaBelle’s New Attitude is a song I have personally been lip syncing since I was 13 years old. In fact, just last week I was giving it a red hot go on the number 6 tram and everyone around me was living. So one of the all time greatest numbers deserves a truly great lip sync. And we got it!

lipsync

Kameron fought hard to overcome that old lady makeover and come through, twisting and turning and miming up a storm. It was heaven!
But this was Eureka’s gig, lip syncing with a conviction she’s not shown before. She owned every kick, every point and every head-back-arm-extension- mouth open syllable. At one stage she did a death drop, and then did a 360 turn still in the splits, working like a compass in a geometry final. It was sublime!
In the end Ru sent no one home because it truly was a lip sync for your life. Everyone lives!
So, like Kameron and Eureka’s liver spots, all you Sweepsters stay put. For now…


And just for fun, here’s a picture of Meghan Markle gettin’ herses.
Happy Royal Wedding weekend everyone! XX

RuPaul's Drag Race SEASON 10 EPISODE 8 - CHER: THE UNAUTHORISED RUSICAL

PROUDEST MARY Just when you thought Monet X Change couldn’t get any gayer she reveals that she did an undergrad in opera performance. Come through Maria Callas! And THEN she reveals her performance this week wil be inspired by the Carol Burnett impersonation of Cher. Did this bitch go on to do her Honours in Faggotry? I live for her!
LAZIEST SUSAN Eureka’s singing in public backstory, with the “daddy beat me for singin’” hogwash. Gimme a break! To her credit she sucked it up and nailed it. But those rehearsals were more painful to watch than Cher’s last comeback.
BLONDE HIGHLIGHTS Asia getting slapped for real in the Mini Challenge proved not only an hilarious accident, but her milking it for all it was worth was delicious. Clutching at her fake wounds and screaming out her revenge: “It’s ‘bout to be Asia O’Hara’s Drag Race. I’m ‘bout to own this whooole building!” Gag!
FROSTY TIPS Cracker’s getting smug. And sorry but I’m not here for it.
LIVING FOR… Ru joked about it, but I am READY for an actual Ethel Merman challenge…!
SURPRISE SURPRISE! Cracker – who so far has showcased an array of camp references – admits she was brought up without any exposure to pop culture. What the WHAT? An hour of TV a WEEK??? I thought she was Jewish – not Amish!
NOTABLE QUOTABLES

 

  • Monet on Vixen’s singing: No I do not see Cher, I see Dennis Rodman guuurl.
  • Asia to Monet: Come on over here and start gettin’ ready cos you need to take your makeup up an octave.
  • Andrew Rannells on Cher: The first time I lip synced to a song it was ‘Gypsies Tramps and Thieves’ in Joe Castello’s basement, and that’s not a euphemism.
  • Billy Eichner (about Asia’s nonplussed performance): I actually left, had a Grindr hookup, and came back.

 

REALLY REAL They keep coming for Aquaria and her arrogance ... why do I feel like I’m watching another show? I get that she’s confident, but no more than any of those other bitches. I liked that when the others came for her earlier in the season she actually listened and tried to adapt accordingly. I like that this week she recognised she needed to do something to get to know the other queens so she made an effort to move on over, get out of her comfort zone, and that takes guts.
SHADIEST LADY Fuck it annoyed me that Todrick, who is always tough on the girls when they can’t get their shit together, gave Kameron a free pass based on being “cute”. The closest he came to constructive criticism appeared to be a flirty one-liner and a comforting hand to the shoulder. He wasn’t quite as constructive with Asia or Eureka. Just goes to show, gays will overlook anything as long as you have a good body.
IT AIN’T WHAT YOU WEAR… Andrew Rannells was a great judge. Handsome, witty, and oh so gay. I’m so in love with him. When he was in the show ‘Girls’ they constantly had him mincing about in just his underwear. Always so wonderful to watch.
IT’S HOW YOU WEAR IT In a week where almost everyone pulled out something extraordinary for the Glitterific runway, Aquaria’s glitter mesh eye covers were next level fuckery. What a look! Which is ironic, given she couldn’t see shit out of them. Totally worth it!
ONE MORE THING The Rusical’s finale – “Cher and Roaches” – was fucking HEAVEN! I died!
YOU’RE A WINNER BABY… Kameron wanted this win. She worked on it, she thought it through, she decided what was gonna work and what wasn’t, she changed her vocal last minute, and she pulled a major look on the runway. This was a shrewd and well played week for this bitch. Good girl!
BYEEEEEEE… The Vixen vs Asia O’Hara lip syncing to ‘Groove Is In The Heart’ by D-Lite: Asia managed to replicate some of the fabulous craziness of D-Lite’s Lady Miss Kier, which gave her an advantage. But this was also the best performance so far from The Vixen, and the two of them in sync for the “1, 2, 3, brrrr…” moment was fucking fabulous.
Ultimately though this just looked like two black chicks dancing to some white nonsense. And, I mean really, that’s exactly what it was. We really haven’t had a jawdropping killer lip sync so far this season, and we really need one right about now.
But then suddenly the clouds cleared, the sun rose, the birds chirped and the deer came to the clearing to see what had occurred… for Ru FINALLY uttered those words we’ve all been yearning to hear: “The Vixen… Sashay away!”
Glorious does not even begin to explain this moment. As far as most satisfying TV moments EVER go, it goes: Number 3 – Joffrey eating the poisoned pie; Number 2 – The Vixen getting ousted from Drag Race; Number 1 – Reggie winning Big Brother.
Bye bitch.

RuPaul's Drag Race Season 10, Snatch Game Review

PROUDEST MARY
You just KNOW there was real sugar in those straws Eureka was sucking down as she did her Honey Boo Boo gig for Snatch Game. Whatever it was that was in there worked like a charm, so snaps for her. I mean, it’s a pretty dated reference, I honestly thought ‘this joke is gonna fall flat for sure’. But she was prepared, she made it hilarious, and it worked. And that’s how you do Snatch Game.

LAZIEST SUSAN
Monique arguing how creative she is while the 2 large pieces of sellotape holding her outfit onto her body are clearly visible. I mean, what can you even say to this bitch?

BLONDE HIGHLIGHTS
Bianca’s back! It was great to see her in this kinda role; funny, insightful, and giving bitches really important, well thought out advice. In the past, the critique for Snatch Game has been vague at best. This year, bitches were told ‘No’. And it worked, for the most part. For some, the advice was the difference between a hit and a miss.

FROSTY TIPS
Everyone (except Eureka, interestingly) said they would send The Vixen home. They gave various reasons why, but here’s the T: EVERYBODY HATES YOU, VIXEN! I mean, we can skate around it, or paint it up to look like something else, but how many other ways are there to say YOU’RE A CUNT AND NO ONE WANTS YOU HERE!

IT AIN’T WHATCHU WEAR!
Dear lord the mermaid runway was a shocker. A few well planned, more creative concepts came through – I’m looking at you Aquaria, and I thought Kameron did pretty well too – but all up it was a hot mess. And not having them ambulant was a terrible idea, though thankfully it has resulted in some wonderful GIFs.

IT’S HOOOW YOU WEAR IT!
Asia’s trout face. I don’t even know where to begin. Artistically, I thought it was a revelation. But to have to keep it on for the whole episode AND during the angst-ridden seriousness of Untucked made for some surreal and camp looking moments. When she had to say who she thought should go, and she said “The Brichkon”… Fuck I laughed.

LIVING FOR…
I’m here to tell y’all, Audra McDonald talking her edges being snatched had me squealing into nearby throw cushions. This bitch has won more acting Tonys than any other person. She is a renowned Soprano, a new mother, a snappy dresser, and she’s currently killing it on The Good Fight (best show on television atm - available through CBS All Access Sunday nights). I live for her. She doesn’t need this show. She is like a million miles above this show. But here she is because she’s FABULOUS and she LOVES IT. And for her to give Aquaria notes on acting is like Freud being your psychotherapist. I mean, DIE.

SURPRISE SURPRISE!
The Vixen choosing Blue Ivy for Snatch Game was potentially the most amazing, laugh out loud moment of this season. It could have changed everything. But, of course she has no humour, so what could have been next level was simply her doing a baby voice. It was such a miss, and only amplified by the fact that it should have been the biggest hit.

NOTABLE QUOTABLES
Aquaria (as Melania): This is the first time Beyonce’s ever written for herself…
Visage (doing her best ‘Little Mermaid’ on Cracker’s runway): Whaddaya call em…? Tits!
The Vixen (to Ru after the lipsync): That’s one thing I learned from you Ru: That’s unless they’re payin’ yo bills, pay them bitches no mind.
Miz Cracker: Shabbat Shablamb!

REALLY UNREAL
Talking Asia out of doing the druggy element of Whitney Houston not only proved detrimental to her performance, but it was a truly gross indictment to how watered down this show has become. So disappointing. A complete embarrassment.

SHADIEST LADY
How much more of The Vixen do we have to endure? What a hateful, angry, empty narcissist she is presenting to the world. Watching her constantly undermine and bully Eureka goes against any kind of ‘for the people’ liberator she purports to be. To claim how frustrated she is by Eureka’s inability to change, after time and again pulling her “This is me! Don’t poke the bear! I won’t change for no one!” bullshit. What a fucking liberty! I mean, we are in new territory here, this bitch is borderline pathological. She’s a fucking Ryan Murphy real life American Horror Story. And here’s the other thing that bugs me: She’s not even very good! Her runway is average at best; she’s never funny or smart; her lipsyncs are messy and haphazard. I mean, at least with Phi Phi she was bringing something good to the party. Vixen honey, please pack up your bitter bags and get the fuck gone.

YOU’RE A WINNER BABY…
Aquaria got her second win. Hurrah! Her Melania was all kinds of genius. This kid is smarter and funnier than she gives herself credit for. That line about “this is why my husband doesn’t like China” and the whole intro with the “HELP ME!” Tiffany box. Sublime! And funny as fuck. She OWNED this week, from the library, to the Snatch Game, through to the runway, so it was great to see her rewarded.

BYEEEEEEE…
The Vixen vs Monique Heart lipsyncing to ‘Cut To The Feeling’ by Carly Rae Jepsen:
Monique ripped off the bottom of her mermaid tail – like literally ripped cos she doesn’t know how to put together a velcro tearaway – and little pearls rolled everywhere and I thought ‘Lord it’s on! We’re about to have a genuine Showgirls moment with the slipping onstage nonsense’. But no.

The Vixen, once again, was unfettered and sloppy, rollin’ and jumpin’ and carryin’ on. But, once again, she worked the energy like a beast. AND she knew the words.
Monique didn’t know the words.

I mean, fuck! HOW did this happen? We NEEDED you this week, bitch.
And it begs the question: How long are they given to learn a song? I always thought they’re given a list of potential ‘Lipsync For Your Life’ songs to learn at the start of their season, so that no one is left completely in the dark. If so, then why would Monique be so disastrously unprepared?

This was a very, very disappointing outcome.
