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
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!)
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!
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.
If you Watch RuPaul’s Drag Race and don’t watch Untucked you missed out on Monday night as Miss Ru’s show went to the dogs in more ways than one! While the girls showed that all of them can take bitchiness to a whole new level, to the point that Dita Von Teese made a completely useless trip to meet them and Even Ru ran out of patience, the high point was the dogs.
Poor Dita sitting in the Gold bar listening to world war three and making out her shopping list (Dita needs to buy bananas folks). It had to be embarrassing to Ru that her girls acted that way in front of a guest (Granted the guest was in the next room), Dita couldn’t have missed what was going on . It was probably uncomfortable for Dita too. And the kicker is that it was a complete waste of Dita’s time as she had to leave to catch a flight without ever speaking to the girls.
But the absolute best part of the show was the interaction between the dogs and some of the comments the dogs made. I was rolling on the floor from the following exchange:
“Tired ass show Dog!”
“Go back to Pet City where you belong!”
“Chad Michaels is old, She’s 170 in dog years.”

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.
So once again she had an eliminated queen return and I can only call it Carmen Carrera Part Deux. It seems the only criteria the judges use is who is fishiest. Carmen a pretty little fish, she came back. Last night is was another pretty little fish, Kenya Michaels.
And once again it was transform a man night. This time it was taking straight baby daddies and turning them into baby momma’s, complete with baby bumps. And once again the pretty one ending up going home almost as soon as she walked back in the door.
Carmen went because she was determined to prance around the stage half naked. Her big buff jock did not have the body to be wearing a bikini. If Carmen had been less concerned with showing off her body, and more concerned with covering up his; she may have hung around a bit longer.
Kenya tried. I’ll give her credit but the guy she chose to pair her with sunk her. He just seemed like it was a chore for him to be there the whole time. He looked absolutely miserable. Bottom two Kenya and she made the same mistake Dida made, you don’t bounce around hip hop, ballet or whatever it was Kenya was doing to Aretha! You young queens need a lesson in old school. I knew she was gone when her hand went to that wig and Santino let out a pained ‘no’.
Come on ladies, since you don’t seem to get it let me lay out the three ‘Laws of Lip Sync’ for you:
- Match your lip-sync to the music
- Keep your shoes on your feet
- Keep your wig on your head
