All Hail the Queen Sharon Needles wins!

So Monday night a new queen was crowned,  we met a new faculty member of of DragU and we know what Willam did.

Willam, the rumors were flying hard and heavy on what you did.  Everything from drug use to who knows what and in the end it was something that we really can’t get mad about or gossip about.  You were bumping uglies with your husband.  I ain’t mad at you girl, you’re hubby is your hubby.  I must say that as much as your arrogance and name dropping annoyed me, inthe end I would much rather have had you make it to the top 3 than the habitual liar Phi Phi O’Hara.  Who continued to spew that crap about her father and how bad he treats her when all anyone has to do is look at her MySpace page to see How Miss Phi Phi brags onthe fact that her father supports her in everything she does.   You may have been an annoying name dropper but you never lied and you never deliberately threw a friend under the bus like Phi Phi.

Latrice Motherfucking Royale, you represented for the big girls.  Making it all the way to the top 4.  But you left your mark when you left.  It was a given that the fans who had grown to admire your courage, strength and honesty would vote for you as Miss Congeniality.  You have been a great role model and an inspiration.  Your willingness to talk about being in prison, and to show that there is life after prison  is a sign of hope for anyone who has been there.  And yes I am looking forward to seeing more of you as you join the faculty of DragU.

Chad Michaels, we all know that you are a professional and you showed us what professionalism is.  You would have been an acceptable champion that would have worn the crown with class but it was not to be.  Sharon Needles, spooky Scary Sharon won.

I liked Sharon from day one when she strolled the runaway all dressed up as a zombie and drooling fake blood down her chin.  Drag is the illusion of being female and not all women are glamorous beauty queens.  Not all women dress up looking like they stepped out of a Vera Wang ad.   Sharon you represent something different.  A new face of drag.  And that what this competition should be about, seeing All the many facets of drag and not just showgirls and beauty queens.  Congratulations, Sharon Needles.  All Hail the Queen

All WIll be revealed!

Who won Ru Paul’s Drag Race?

What did Willam do?

Tune in Monday Night 9pm Eastern to RuPaul’s Drag Race Reunion show to get the answers!  And don’t for get that Ru asked us to help her pick the deserving winner of Season 4! Tweet to #Drag Race or Post on Drag Race’s Facebook page to let Ru know your choice to wear the crown;  Sharon Needles (Yes!), Chad Michaels (acceptable) Or Phi Phi O’Hara (Should have sashayed away a long time ago!)

Who will be the next drag superstar? It’s up to us!

First an apology, I was out of town and offline for a long weekend at a convention for my business.  But I’m back and Just in time for the finale of RuPaul’s Drag Race.

I was on pins and needles waiting to find out who would take over for Raja as this year’s winner, and then I got left with a cliffhanger!  No winner was announced, we will find out on the reunion show.  And Ru has asked for our help in choosing that winner.

So it’s down to Phi Phi, Sharon and Chad.  I’ll Say right now Phi Phi definitely does NOT deserve to win.  Her attitude stinks and I find it amazing that with all the garbage she has put out there about her father, She has a mySpace page in which she says how supportive her parents, including her father, are about everything she does.  That has been a constant pity point for Phi Phi.  I don’t believe someone who has said they will do anything to win and then trashes their father on national television is deserving of a place in the top three, never mind the crown.

Chad Michaels has been polished throughout the competition.  I know Michelle has been riding her for it but as Chad has said, he is always Chad.  Chad has shown nothing but professionalism and class from the beginning.  The Snatch Game episode is a perfect testament to Chad’s professionalism.  When the queens in the bottom row turned the show into a juvenile, vulgar high school locker room free for all, Chad maintained her composure.   That really demonstrated the gap between Chad and the others.  Chad would represent Ru’s name with class and style.  She would be an acceptable winner in my eyes, but…

This competition is to crown the next Drag Superstar.  The key word there is ‘next’.  That says new, fresh something that we haven’t been seeing in drag for the past 20 years.  The only one that brings the new and fresh element is Sharon Needles.  Sharon is spooky, she caught my attention from episode one.  I know a lot of people may have done exactly what Phi Phi did, put her in a little box thinking that all Sharon could do was a spooky goth look.  She proved everyone wrong.   Sharon is the only queen who has really brought a variety of looks to the main stage.

So as I said Ru has asked us to let her know who should win.  You can voice your opinion by going to the RuPaul’s Drag Race Facebook page or tweet #Drag Race.  Let Ru know how you feel and tune in to the reunion show on April 30th on Logo TV!

 

So it’s down to the final three

One week away from finding out who will be the Next Drag Superstar.  Only three Queens remain, and one really has no business being there.

Phi Phi O’Hara really should not be anywhere near the final three.  I know she has here supporters but Phi Phi also has a ruthless attitude that is very unbecoming.  I won’r even got into the fact that she is a ‘tired ass showgirl’.  Phi Phi doesn’t bring anything fresh to the table, we’ve seen it all before.  And she’s definitely not polished.  If her look was innovative or new I could forgive her rough edges when it comes to her look.  She needs to be sent packing before the lip-sync.

Chad Michaels is very polished.  I think that this was the reason the judges always complained about her ‘look’.  When you can’t find anything else to bitch about, make something up like ‘you’re too polished’.  Chad is a professional Cher impersonator and probably the most believable one I have ever seen.  Chad isn’t new, but her professionalism an dedication to what she does should earn her a place in the final lip sync.

Finally my pick to win, Sharon Needles.  The title is “next drag superstar” that means the winner should be bringing something fresh to the table and Sharon does.  She has always stood out from the other queens.  But the biggest point in her favor is the fact that she is versatile.  She can put together completely different looks and make them work.

So I would love to see it come down to Sharon and Chad in the final lip sync.  They are the most deserving of the crown and I think would be role models that Ru could be proud to have her name connected with.  And unlike Phi Phi would got busted out yesterday for her whole My father doesn’t support me spiel (Check her MySpace page where she says how blessed she is and how her father supports her in everyway) Both Sharon and Chad have shown integrity throughout the competition.

Bye Boo! Latrice sashayed away

Okay Sharon Needles blew it out of the water.  I want those furry boots, but Chad Michaels in the bottom two?  She had a Chinese Crested dog for crying out loud and I thought the point was to create a look inspired by the breed of dog.  Have any of those judges ever taken a close look at a Chinese Crested?  Chad’s look screamed Chinese Crested!

I really did not get anything Bloodhound from Phi Phi’s outfit, or was it was because she was in shades of brown?  Brown by itself doesn’t say bloodhound hound.   Phi Phi needed a lot more work to represent her dog.  Or was it because she came out there with a pink glittered pooper scooper looking like a skinny Jiggly?

I would love to complain about Latrice getting sent home but I knew when she fell into the bottom two it was over.  With Winona Judd on the panel we knew it would be a country song.  Latrice has the soul vibe but that wasn’t going to fly with country.  Although had the correct two been in the bottom (Phi Phi) Latrice would have had a chance.

 

Willam what did you do?

RuPaul paired the girls up last night in a frienemies challenge and what an interesting night.  And shocking too!

First the ladies all took lie detector tests in which Ru asked them a series of yes or no questions and got some interesting results.  It looks like Carmen Carrera was right last season durung the comedy club challenge, everyone secretly wants to kai-kai with the big girl.  Everyone wants a piece of Latrice!  And Dita Ritz is a habitual liar.

After going over the results she grouped them into appropriate pairs based on their answers.  Willam and Latrice, Dita and Chad Michaels and finally the most obvious pairing; Sharon Needles and Phi Phi O Hara.  The Party City girl and the broke down pageant queen.  I was surprised to see that Sharon and Phi Phi actually managed to not kill each other, there’s no love lost between those two!

Willam was oddly silent the whole time.  So not the little braggart she usually is.  Something was up.  But we had no idea what was coming.

I have to admit that Willam and Latrice had the best act and won the challenge. While Sharon and Phi Phi were stuck to lip sync for their lives (After Willam tossed her cookies over the edge of the stage).  At the end of the lip sync when Sharon and Phi Phi were waiting to see who was going home, Ru called Willam forward.

Now for the shocker.  Willam was the one who went home.  It seems that Willam was caught breaking the rules.  What rule?  During Untucked the level of animosity between Phi Phi and Willam was revealed, or at least Phi Phi’s animosity toward Willam.  Several accusations of rule breaking from Phi Phi although no specifics were given.

I was left wondering what rule, and more importantly how did the rule breaking come to Ru’s attention.  With Phi Phi involved I wouldn’t be surprised if it wasn’t Phi Phi that brought it to Ru’s attention.  She threw Jiggly under the bus last week and said that she would do whatever is necessary to win.  With one incident of sabotage under her belt, any underhanded thing she does from now on won’t surprise me.  I guess I’ll have to be like everyone else and wait until April 30th and the reunion show to find out what Willam did that was so wrong.

I never made any bones about the fact that I found Willam annoying and wanted her gone.  But I wanted her gone because someone showed her up for the lack of talent not because someone was a tattletale.  I understand that rules must be followed but I would rather not have seen her eliminated this way.  It would have been much better to not do this one on camera.  Simply say that she had been disqualified.

I will say that if Phi Phi had something to do with it, Phi Phi needs to follow her out of the door.  The more I see of Phi Phi the less class she shows.  All three season winners have been classy ladies let’s not taint the title by having an underhanded schemer win this season.

3 Strikes and you’re out!

Jiggly Caliente has sashayed away.   How many times did you think you were going to land in the bottom two and keep hanging on?  All in all that was a good call Jiggly just didn’t have the confident bearing needed to carry the title.  There was also some emotional immaturity there.

Jiggly didn’t listen to the right people.  Everyone was telling her to be humorous with her magazine except for Phi Phi.  Come on Jiggly, even Ru tried to tell you and you didn’t listen; not the first time either.  When Ru speaks, you listen to what Ru has to say.  It was Ru who had the power to send you home, not Phi Phi.  You listened to the wrong bitch and paid the price.  You should have realized that.  When Ru clocked you on it you should have done what Dita did, stand by your choice with conviction.

Phi Phi you are one conniving bitch, but an honest conniving bitch.  You did say that you will do whatever you have to do.  No one should be surprised that you deliberately threw Jiggly under the bus.  You aren’t just shady,  you are a total eclipse of the sun!

I have to say that your make up looked much better on the runway last night and you did have the best cover photo for your magazine, so you didn’t need to sacrifice Jiggly to win.  Get rid of your conniving ways and I might just rethink my opinion of you because you do listen to the judges.  Your appearance on the runway last night proved that.

My Second best television moment of the week , seeing Willam in the bottom two.  (Shane Walsh getting killed twice on The Walking Dead is still  number one) Willam has annoyed me from day one with her arrogance.  Here’s hoping for a repeat next week along with sashay away for her.  Get over yourself, you are not on the level of any of those stars you keep comparing yourself to.
