So what’s the deal with Willam and transsexual performers? I could swear I saw tweets or posts with him complaining about transgender drag queens.
Then he got called out on it by the public, posted something about Courtney Act educating him, and now every episode of “Race Chaser” is him complaining about RPDR being on the wrong side of history on the transgender issue.
|by Anonymous||reply 31||05/10/2020|
Willam is an attention whore and will do anything for clicks. He doesn’t get the benefit of a whole production company boosting your career (TRIXIE).
He, like pretty much every drag performer before Trans Inc.®️ put a chokehold on the “LGBTQ+ Community”, always made tranny references. He played trannies on TV (NOT drag), performed in “Ticked Off Trannies With Knives” which he promoted around his time on S4, and of course his original song parody “The Vagina Song.”
Willam is of course right in his original opinion of tranny “drag queens” (as is RuPaul). But they’ll bow down to fame and the dollar. Courtney Act didn’t change his spots (and let’s not get STARTED on her).

I’ve heard two stories about Mathu : one is he got very very sick and couldn’t continue working, and that Ru was a nasty cold bitch about it. The second story is that Mathu and Ru got into a huge fight while doing Ru’s makeup for an episode and Mathu walked off while Ru’s face was half done-apparently there is an episode of the show where you can see this

R35, it should be noted that Ru was, and most likely still is, footing the bill for all of Mathu’s healthcare and accommodations. He just doesn’t need to brag about it for attention on a podcast like Willam was by acting like Mother Teresa for bringing him a milkshake. The issue was that Mathu wanted (or Willam SAID he wanted) Ru to reach out to him and Ru didn’t want to because of the tense circumstances of their falling out.

I remember how refreshing it felt at the time. It's bizarre to see Ru look like he's having FUN with the girls and enjoying himself. Now he mostly looks like he's counting the dollars he's chatting with the girls.

I have met a few - William very very nice. Alaska was sweet and genuine. Manilla - met her at Disneyland riding the train to New Orleans Square - when we got off I asked him if his name was Karl with a k and he laughed and said yes, I said, I thought you should have won. He was very nice we ended up in line next to each other for haunted mansion - we took pics, very nice.
The Mathu drama. When RPDR moved to VH1 the budget got increased. Mathu was doing Ru's makeup for the show when he got a call from his agent. He stepped out to take the call. His agent told him the show was not going to pay him any more money, so he hung up and walked out with Ru having his makeup half done. Raven had to step in and do it and it took her a while to get his make upright (you can see in episodes). Delta was brought in to do Ru's wigs. Ru never spoke to Mathu after that. William had hired Mathu to shoot and style his cover for Suck Less. They had also remained friends after RPDR. When Mathu got sick, he was asking to see or talk to Ru, presumably to set the record straight and maybe rekindle a friendship. Ru refused to take his call. Willam's studio is right across the street from WOW studios and he saw Ru one day and shouted at him about Mathu. Ru was leaving, pulled up in his car, and shouted HOW DARE YOU? and went on about how much he has done for queens. Willam replied he was going to take his sick friend some food, which is more than Ru has ever done for Mathu and Ru sped off.
|by Anonymous||reply 69||05/16/2020|
also - Delta did Ru's wigs for the season it was nominated for an Emmy for hair and makeup but they left her name off so she never got that Emmy. When the show went to the UK, Delta just assumed she was going with the rest of the crew, except she never got the call. No one called her to tell her she was no longer required. Delta and Raven were nominated for an Emmy the first season but it turned out they were not working on the show that was nominated - they then won the next year but were snubbed after that.

I use to like Willam and found him very funny initially. However, like SO many gays that reach a tad fame, it is my opinion it's gone to his head. He's rude, short tempered, attention -seeking, loud, and manipulative. He was the first to be disqualified from RPDR. Thinks shocking the audience by fisting some guy on stage during his comedy show was a novel idea. He got a huge backlash from the trans community for distasteful comment he made on his YOUTUBE show. I, for one, do not believe one second he is HIV- like he claims. I just don't believe him. My opinion. He was a fat kid who got skinny, but fugly as a man, bearded drag queen at best. Bart...that's his middle name. Bart. I like calling him Bart.

That was his downfall. He had worked on professional sets so when he and all the other queens got treated like shit he stood up to them. His other downfall was big dick.

This isn't the mentality someone should have whose job it is to judge others in a competitive setting. This might also explain why Ru always appears stiff and robotic when interacting with the queens. He's making it too personal when he should be impartial.
And, also Pearl, like Willam, I find rather pathetic. He made a whole big stink about not needing the show because he was going to be successful one way or another but here he is many years later and not so cute anymore still only recognized for being on Rupaul's Drag Race.

R97, I don’t know about that. I suspect something went down with Alaska and World of Wonder. Lately, so many of the queens have been returning to the show. Bianca, Trixie, Jinkx...all the big names have been doing werk room walkthroughs. You can’t get Vanjie off the show. And now with Celebrity Drag Race, three legendary queens appear every week. And nothing from Alaska. The last time she was on was during All Stars 4 but that was an instance where it would’ve been suspicious if she hadn’t been there.
Alaska always went on and on about what a superfan she was of the show. I doubt it’s a salary issue. Alaska has had rumors for a while that she’s an asshole to deal with. And I don’t think that irrelevant Race Chaser podcast she does with Willam is the deal breaker. I’d love to know the true story of what happened there.

I think RuPaul was intimidated by Pearl in a way she normally isn’t. She’s still the Queen of Drag and knows the winners of her show will tour for a few years, maybe make a few hundred thousand, and will never threaten her position. But Pearl was, in all honestly, a gorgeous boy. He had the possibility to do things that Ru never could. As together as she makes herself sound, I could see something like that turning a Pearl into an antagonist for Ru.

Pearl also allegedly slept with the same producer that Willam did to get a higher placement, as did Trinity.

Not that Pearl was going to take over his rule, but something that all of his New Age bullshit couldn't cover up. Maybe Pearl was that pretty boy Ru always wanted to be? Which reminds me, is Ru playing at getting all of these procedures or is he starting to panic and getting PS happy? He had something going on at the start of this most recent season, and months later, he's wearing a compression mask on the reunion.

Hi R109, My memory isn't the greatest, so anyone please correct whatever I get wrong. RuPaul did an interview with Terry back in March (I forget if that was his first time with her). I think she brought up how he co-managed his ranch in Wyoming with partner and she threw out the figure of 600 acres or something. He corrected her and said, oh, no, 60,000 acres. And she asked him about it and he explained that with a ranch that big it's a matter of land management where you lease out the land to various companies/people for various things: free grazing, mineral rights, selling water to oil companies, etc. I *think* it stopped there and Terry didn't ask him about what mineral rights/selling water entailed. Someone smart was listening and figured out that leasing out land for mineral rights/selling water likely equated to fracking and posted it on Twitter. I don't really understand fracking, but RuPaul also didn't speak up when this deduction went viral.

There are some that say that the power dynamics between them make it non-censual, but when it comes down to it, it’s not really fair for the other queens whose dick the producer doesn’t want to suck.

Ru sat a row back and to the side of me at the musical "Something Rotten" at the Ahmanson Theatre DTLA. He and his husband came into the center Mezz section at the ring. I saw them but mostly no one blinked an eye. A Friday night show. At intermission his hubby left and Ru put up his hoodie over half his face and pretended to sleep the entire intermission. Side note, his hubby is not cute at all in person. He was close to Detox in the face dept. Step away from the plastic! Yikes!

Based on what Pearl and others explained, it seems RuPaul was trying to mine for drama. Pearl wouldn't play his game and share about his personal life (nor should he have, as he obviously wasn't ready to), so RuPaul drummed up the drama on his own. And, then, on What's the Tea?, RuPaul continues to push a false narrative. For what reason? I have no idea, other than he's delusional and doesn't give a fuck. Was he threatened by Pearl? Sure he was. He was threatened by someone who wouldn't give in and play his game, because they weren't ready to share and nor were they obligated. Pearl is going to talk about HIS life on HIS terms, not for RuPaul's ratings. So, what does RuPaul do? He makes the drama up. Certainly, RuPaul, as creator/producer, has a show to make. It's his job. But, to continue to lie about it? Bizarre.
Pearl's "My Past" video is heartbreaking. That guy has obviously gone through so much in a childhood filled with abuse by multiple people (though, some trolls on here will say "he knew what he was doing" and "he asked for it"; to those assholes, I say "fuck off"). He made this video THREE years after the series, and he only shared a fraction of what he has been through.
He comes across to me as very genuine and his motivations appear to be about reckoning with his past, and sharing what he feels comfortable with, as he seems extremely appreciative of his fans and supporters. It also seems pretty clear that he's still processing and sorting himself out. This video is from 2018.

Sorry, I have a few more words to add ...
Pearl possesses a level of physical beauty that is just beyond (obviously). But, he comes across as extremely humble and self-deprecating, as well. He has a disarming approach that would put most people at ease that you wouldn't normally find with someone who looks like him (except for those immature like myself, who would still find a way to be a mumbling idiot if I found myself in a conversation with him). As he has admitted, he has probably fucked over a lot of people during his youth (including as a young adult), but seems to have learned from his past and grown up and learned to respect people more. However, I look at his trajectory compared to other queens who come across as less genuine and have enjoyed more "success," and it makes me sad. Like, unrepentant assholes in this world tend to have more of an advantage. It also sounds like he doesn't necessarily want a career exclusively in front of the camera.
I wish Pearl the best. I don't think my impression of him was all that great when I watched his season (and that's in part because I bought into the editing), but now I absolutely adore him. I'm cheering for him on the sidelines. It's taking him a long time to sort through his issues, but he does have a lot on his plate. It sounds like he's building a strong foundation in the process and his healing process has been a net positive.

Anymore tea on Tyra Sanchez and her unraveling? I recently learned about her losing her mind and threatening to bomb DragCon. Jesus!
I’m rewatching Season 2 and remembering how I hated that Tyra won because her personality sucked, but the bitch did turn it out. I also think Rupaul saw her as a kind of mini-me, but less threatening because she lacked Ru’s charisma and savvy. Too bad she squandered her win and went crazy. I get that she probably got a lot of hate and was eclipsed by Raven and Juju in popularity, but they just made for better tv. Tyra could have stepped her game up but instead played the victim.

R125, Tyra just keeps getting messier and messier. There are some days she posts long, thoughtful messages about reflecting on her past behavior and saying she wants to take steps to better herself. Then a month later, she’ll post a long rant about how she hates being a drag queen and that people can never look past the glamour and see her as her boy self. She quits drag, then unquits the next day. It’s all detailed the RPDRDrama subreddit, but the community there is one of the worst on the internet, so tread lightly. You will never meet as many dumb and psychologically damaged people in your life as you will there.
But perhaps that’s why Tyra is such a topic there. It seems to be a mental illness/drug issue with her. It’s a shame she keeps shooting herself in the foot. She’d be a great candidate to come back to All Stars and prove that she earned her crown. It would also help her financial situation. Last we heard, she was working at an Amazon fulfillment center.

R132 I think a lot of the problems with the current seasons (maybe season 7 onwards) is that so many of the younger contestants have grown up watching drag race. Their ideas about what drag are/can do only come from the show itself. Coupled with the fact that Ru is obviously biased towards young queens, the show has become very predictable. At least older seasons had queens with interesting personalities/well developed drag personas. For example, the show keeps beating us over the head with how "kooky" Crystal is... and... is she? Is she really that kooky? She seems like a nice guy, but christ. I wouldn't pay to see that shit. Same with Yvie Oddly. Their ~*~QuIrKiNeSs~*~ doesn't hold up when you compare them to a queen like Tammie Brown, who seems like a genuine freak!!! At least her drag is... her own? And not derivative of something that was already ON drag race? I think I might tap out after Season 12.
|by Anonymous||reply 133||05/26/2020|
I mostly tapped out sometime in Season 7. I returned only to watch faves. I watched bits of S9 (I was a fan of Charlie Hides' YouTube channel) and All-Stars 2 (I love Alyssa) & All-Stars 3 (huge Shangela fan). I haven't seen anything since.
I was turned off by the weird drop in production values in S7, but also the lack of older queens (both of whom exited early). It wasn't that interesting to me overall. Of course, I think I was being overly harsh. But, I do think there is something to be said for those who didn't grow up on the series, as R133 pointed out. Too many queens were either there for just the fame of it all and/or weren't seasoned enough.
I think Bianca will be the best winner the show has ever had, though, as well as the best example of when most queens should be going on that show. So, when I look back, that's when the series crested, I think it was there (Season 6).
Tammie Brown is one of my Top 5. Love her forever. Sadly, I don't think RuPaul would put someone like her on today.

After season 6 there is a marked change in tone to the show. It‘a multiple things.
The queens are young and grew up with the show, and these younger queens are more looks than performance based-they got their start on Instagram instead of their local gay bar.
Ru seems to be less engaged as she develops and stars in shows other than this one.
The departure of longtime Drag Race mainstays like Santino, Lucian Piane, Mathu Andersen, etc., had a negative impact.
In the first several seasons, there were always a few queens that excited people in their hometown because of their /?reputation. That hasn’t been the case in several seasons from what I recall.
Overall, this show is aging and is starting to deteriorate in quality. I’d guess that it has several more seasons left in it however-its becoming more and more popular in the mainstream. It’s getting relatively good ratings on VH1 and I’m sure the old seasons are popular Streaming on Hulu

Thanks for your answer r128. I agree, if Tyra hadn’t been so messy she could have returned for an All Stars season and redeemed herself. Strangely I have more sympathy for the Tyra on Season 2 than I did when I first watched, but not a lot for the person he is now. I looked at that Drama subreddit and they mostly seem to defend her because they hate WOW and Rupaul. That’s another thing I think has affected the quality of the show: “fans” are younger and balk at the sign of any drama or aggressive personalities. A show about bitchy drag queens competing and throwing barbs at each other has become all lovey dovey in recent seasons. And if someone does act up (like Brita did this season), the weirdo trolls send them death threats. It’s the double edged sword of the show blowing up in pop culture. With other drag themed shows popping up now, I think Drag Race will only last as long as Rupaul wants to do it.

R134 Season 7 really marked a change in the show. I haven't re-watched Seasons 5 or 6 in a loooong time, so I can't quite compare , but Ru just seemed so OVER IT during Season 7. Something else must have been going on with Ru during that season. Not to bring up Pearl, YET AGAIN, but I still don't think Ru's anger towards her makes sense. Maybe I'm missing something, but I never got the impression from watching Season 7 that she didn't WANT to be there. Good grief, that was all anyone talked about. I think Pearl is just a low key person with a drier sense of humour. I do guess the anger makes sense if Ru wanted to milk her for her traumatic past and she wasn't falling for it. I don't recall Ru being so frustrated before or since, which I think makes Ru's laser focus on Pearl seem... even weirder? If she was *that* hard on queens all the time, every season, well okay that would be consistent. With Pearl vs. Ru it was like watching a bully pick out his next victim and, this time, the victim wasn't falling for it.
I can't help but find Pearl endearing, sue me!!!!! I mean, she probably should have been eliminated in the lipsync vs Trixie, let's be honest.

Raven was a straight up cunt on season 2, which made her memorable in my eyes. Her friendship with Juju on AS1 softened her a lot though. I’m guessing she’s still got the gig doing Rupaul’s makeup? She probably doesn’t need to do another All Stars, though I think she’d also be great.

Tyra was ok. I didn’t see it. I was team Juju but upon rewatch years later Juju was such a hot drunk mess! Still love her tho.
Re: Santino. Santino was terrible and I loathed him intensely from the day he went hard on Shannel for being too put together. But distance makes the heart grow fonder and at least Santino had the balls to be critical. He wouldn’t have let that Jaida Essence Hall white ball look slide with balls hanging off the bottom.

She certainly was. The one-drink rule during Untucked is because of her.

It’s still weird that people bring up season seven as the worst season. Yes, it was a noticeable decrease in quality with weird casting and random challenges but gave us some legends like Trixie and Katya (who launched into superstardom or their own), Ginger Minj (who received prestigious acting work), and Violet as a fashion icon.
The worst season of the show really is 11 which was just an embarrassment from start to finish with the most untalented and frankly unlikable cast the show ever had. If Nina fucking West is your only breakout star, that’s pitiful.

Jasmine Masters WAS terrible and despite Fandom trying to make her a Tammie-esque meme and getting graced with a do-over she proved she still sucked. Doesn’t mean she deserved the shit she got from the fun-sucking frauen.
Kennedy Davenport should have been F3. She also should have beat Trixie in All Stars.
Kandy Ho always will have beaten Jaidynn in that lip sync especially to an Ariana song while she was wearing an Ariana pony.

As mentioned above, Season 7 suffered from two major problems: having to follow the excellent Season 6, and the challenges themselves. Smaller factors such as Untucked moving to online-only with a completely different format, and Santino being replaced by Carson and Ross also weren't exactly welcomed by the fan base. The panel should include someone who has a fashion background.
Some of those challenges in the first half of Season 7 were just awful. I read on Reddit (so grain of salt, etc. etc.) that the writer who came up with Season 7's challenges was a newbie to the show, and wasn't invited back for Season 8. There were indeed many memorable queens in that season, but even they would say that the challenges made it difficult for them to showcase their talents. In her Exposed interview with Joseph Shepherd, Katya brought up the Merle Ginsberg challenge as an example of that, and it was a challenge she won! You don't cast queens like Violet Chachki and Miss Fame, and give them a seemingly endless run of lame "acting" challenges, with no fashion challenges in between.
They reduced the number of queens for Season 8 from 14 to 12, but in retrospect, perhaps they should have done the same for Season 7 (or have 13 each). Jasmine Masters is a walking, talking meme, and good for her for getting some degree of success from that, but the fact remains that she was a terrible Drag Race contestant. Sasha Belle was total filler and also not ready for prime time (cute as a boy though, despite the whiny voice).
I have my own personal, and controversial, opinion about Season 11 and the below average standard of queens that season - since they knew they were bringing Vanjie back as soon as (or even before) Season 10 ended, and clearly didn't want her to be an early boot again, they cast a bunch of fillers that had no chance of outshining her. I just don't know how it was that so many queens who were completely out of their element, or just totally mediocre (such as Soju, Kahanna, Mercedes and Rajah) actually made it onto the show. I had suspected that the pool was running dry among aspirational contestants, but thankfully Season 12's high caliber killed that concern.

Soju was S11's queen with preseason hype who turned out to be a total dud. She got on based on the strength of her YouTube channel but tanked in actual competition. In that respect she sort of reminds me of Porkchop Parker from S1, a seasoned pageant queen who had already appeared in two drag documentaries; Penny Tration from S5, who won her spot as that season's Facebook Fan Vote; Kelly Mantle, who was heavily rumored to have won S6 on Reddit and various spoiler sites; and Naysha Lopez, a former Miss Continental.

When you die that young, it’s either drugs or AIDS. I believe Sahara had said in the past she struggled with some drug issues.
When you think back to Paris is Burning and how most of the cast had died within five years of the film’s release, it’s pretty surprising that only one Ru girl has died since the show started. Times have changed. But then Drag Race has brought about the Disneyfication of drag and now all of them have to have the perfect moral history of politicians to survive the wrath of the current fanbase.

Definitely some kind of mental illness. Before S8 Robbie's pathological lying was legendary in Seattle. When the Uber story made headlines, people came out of the woodwork with stories about her claiming to have Stage 4 cancer and being kidnapped/mugged.
She used IG regularly to post miscellaneous fictional bullshit. One time she posted a photo of a pie she had supposedly baked with a crust in the shape of an octopus; then she got busted by a Nancy Drew who reverse-image-searched the photo.
When she was a guest on Jonny McGovern's [italic]Hey Qween,[/italic] she claimed she had written her autobiography. She handed him a random book with her face and the "book" title on the jacket.

R188, it’s probably factious disorder, the subset of which (by proxy) is probably the creepiest of all mental illnesses. It’s usually mentally unhinged women pretending to be sexually abused young boys they supposedly adopt. The perpetuator of the Anthony Godby Johnson hoax “Vicki Johnson” was the scariest of these. Then there’s the most famous case, JT LeRoy, which was another incidence where they wrote autobiographies in the voice of their “adopted children” and started correspondence with celebrities like Courtney Love and Armistead Maupin, who wrote a book about his experience that was made into the movie The Night Listener with Robin Williams.

Alaska admitted to drug problems after her season on All Stars 2 - She said after season 5 she was offered everything, drugs, boys and she took part of all of it. Bianca always jokes about Lady Bunny introducing her to coke. I think drugs are pretty common with drag queens in general. Late nights, a few bumps and you go on stage. All of the RPDR girls talk about race chasers. What they call fans that want to fuck them. Willam is notorious for taking advantage of that. Being a RPDR girl and a size queen - he will take the race chaser with the biggest dick, I remember Alaska was doing her backstage video and William was on camera with him, his trade hanging around in the background and Willam points out this big long vein on the back of the guy's leg and says "it's almost as long as the one on your dick."

1) There's rumors that World of Wonder pays for Mathu's care but maybe it's just insurance from his many years of working for them. Mathu really is solely responsible for RuPaul's look. He's the one that created the "Supermodel" or Big Black Barbie Doll look that made her a huge star. If you look at photos/video of RuPaul BEFORE that, he was a mess with terrible make up. And, you can always tell Mathu wasn't around if you see photos/video of Ru AFTER her success (ie her appearance on Project Runway) because Ru looks terrible without Mathu's talents.
2) RuPaul has been a bitch since the beginning. And, to be fair, you have to be tough and focused to climb the ladder of success but she's treated people poorly for a very long time. Ask bar owners and event producers who booked her in the late 90s/early 2000s in between her success years (early 90s with Supermodel of the World and RPDR in 2008). She was famous for her cunty behavior.
3) There's a lot of drugs in drag world, especially at RPDR level since they're constantly in that world of night clubs and showbiz where there's a lot of opportunities. Not all of them and not all the time (if you're doing drugs all the time, you don't function and then you don't work) but it's there. It is a bit surprising that there's only been one RPDR death due to drugs.

Don’t believe the shit about Pearl either. She’s an ungrateful brat who got too big for her britches and Ru wasn’t having it. Pearl is lucky Ru let her into the Top 3.
The younger Drag Race fans don’t like Ru because he doesn’t kiss their asses. That’s it in a nut shell.
I agree about the show changing after season 6, although season 12 had the most enjoyable cast to me since season 6. They were genuinely delightful. The last few seasons prior all had several nasty, entitled, maladjusted, psycho queens that made the show quite tedious.

It's interesting that there aren't any queens from seasons 4-7 on All Stars 5, imho. I guess there aren't a lot of queens left from those seasons who'd be good for All Stars. Like, who is left? Serena Cha Cha? Madame LaQueer? It's also refreshing that there aren't any queens from S11 on All Stars 5. Not because that season sucked, because it did, but I always think the queens who just come off of finishing a season and are thrown into All Stars get a raw deal (even if they win like Monet). They aren't given years to polish their drag like queens from other seasons are.

Monet and Monique coming back to All Stars literally months after S10 was a bad mistake, especially in the latter’s case. She was charming, but could also be shrill and obnoxious. After a year straight of her on TV, she wore out her welcome. I don’t have any desire to see her again.
Monet’s win would have been less controversial if she waited until she polished her act more — which is great now, by the way — and assembled a high quality wardrobe from top designers. Her runways on AS4 were embarrassing.

R201 isn't saying the half of it. It doesn't seem to fly here to talk about the real RuPaul. He would never win his own show - he was kid cool and an ugly hooker until his talentless ASS was recreated in the 1990s. Supermodel Barbie everybody say LOVE! But his MALE cuntiness followed him everywhere. And I would know. He is not miss congeniality. And the picture @ R202 is far too kind. Ru has that weird apologist fanatic that seems to run these threads - so we will now here about how of course Rupaul needed to be tough and full of perseverance. The same racist asshole who hates all the black queens attempts to control all the discussion here. RuPaul is newly black, again. Just in time. After saying that Trump was just an illusion and The Vixen was imagining things.
Long after he was a star, Ru was a grade A miserable greedy CUNT. A male CUNT. In the clubs in the late 1990s, you would never believe that a drag queen had a heart or "vulnerability" if Rupaul Charles was the attraction. Customers with less than $20 bills were not allowed to approach him when he performed. And he's lousy in his Diana Ross Drag. Or he looked like a big man in a blonde wig. Yes the art progressed. But Rupaul does not deserve any credit for that.
Even at World Pride - Ru only came to promote his brand and deliver the coldest of address. He's got a great show. But Mathu Anderson and Zaldy deserve more than half the credit for the robot that is RuPaul. His earpiece fed lines and direction get another 25%. He's an asshole. That's one of the many reasons the rest of the judging panel is so weak. There is no worse judging panel on a hit reality show than RPDR. He wants it that way. I hate the dude. Find one top queen who out and out praises anything more than Rupaul's dresses and makeup? You can't. He's not even a good bitch. Just a cold man. All male dark hearted ugly CUNT.

Violet, like Miss Fame, is void of personality but is a fabulous look queen, maybe the best ever from RPDR. I didn’t appreciate her until years after her season aired. She’s not only beautiful, she’s exquisitely chic. There have been many beautiful queens on RPDR, but they’re glitzy pageant types, not fashionable. That does NOT mean she should have won, I don’t really think she should’ve, but she is not without some appeal.
Gigi Goode also has impeccable taste, is beautiful, and is also funny, the complete package.
Bianca is a borscht belt-style insult comic and comes off as toxic. Her “vulnerable” moments during the show were so calculated. I can’t stand her, but people seem to eat it up, and she’s reportedly a millionaire, so what do I know,

She’s all high kicks and death drops, which is what 80% of the show’s competitors already serve us.

However, Mimi ended up completely shitting the bed during the lip sync and Ru had no choice but to send her home.

I love Kennedy too. What a character and what a pro. R219's ass doesn't need to worry about her. Kennedy is not a top tier RuGirl but she's travelled the world, got married and wows them wherever she performs. Kennedy still cares for his disabled sister and bought a new house when theirs burned down. Someone doesn't know much about Drag performers. Just because RAVEN is a racist ugly drag HAG who hates Kennedy - doesn't mean that most others are. Kennedy Davenport is the ONLY contestant in Drag Race History that RuPaul publicaly urged people to go and see in person. He said it on the season 7 finale. Emphatically. Kennedy is the bomb in person, and not only when she's dancing. She also won Snatch Game as Little Richard, was great impersonating Bianca, can sing and REALLY dance and has great gowns and was hilarious in The Bitchelor. Someone's robe is showing again. It's a white robe. Always on these threads. Kennedy is a pageant queen, a ballroom queen, a trained dancer and the best damn performer you'll ever see in a bar drag show. She'll break your heart - then come back and break the floor. She and Latrice also sang gospell at 54 below. The less said about that, the better.
Kennedy is someone who instead of making three hundred dollars a week, now makes thousands. That's success whether R219 thinks so or not. RuPaul personally apologized to Laguardia, Newark and Kennedy Davenport BEFORE they eliminated her in 4th place on Season 7. Explaining that Pearl and Violet made better TV for the final three. You can't have it both ways you racist ugly troll. Kennedy would (unfortunately) be all too willing to agree with you that she's a dumb small town overweight pageant queen past her prime. Then put her on stage and nobody questions her reason for being there.
You're a racist ass R219. Kennedy is too black, too old and not "attractive" enough for your approval. She said condole for condone. Don't pretend you're not racist or any different. Your objection to her is nothing other than that. Because she's succeeded in every way. And the other Drag Race alumni love her. She doesn't get the top gigs. I wonder why? Oh yeah. But she's HIGH DRAG at its finest. That's what Latrice says. Are you calling Latrice a low class n*gg*r too R219?

So as fierce as the idea of a villains season would be — and how well it would turn out — there would be a million cloying thinkpieces about how called The Vixen a villain is problematic, despite how disgusting her behavior was.

Aside from All Winners for All Stars, my dream for a season of the regular show would be Drag Race: Kings vs. Queens. They could start it off Survivor style with two separate groups. They could record dueling tracks, two different comedy scenes, and etc. Ru would pick one team to the be the winners with an individual challenge win, and the other would be the losers. The bottom two would either lip sync to a male song or a female song. At one point, they could merge.
We could probably get some great Drag Kings since they’re scraping the bottom of the barrel with queens at this point. I could see a Landon Cider type taking the crown.

For all the outrage we have each year about the winner of RPDR, I'm surprised that not a lot of people comment on the fact that it's obvious Ru really leans towards picking winners who remind him of himself in one way or another. I don't think it's always clear to see, but I think it's there. He sees himself in fashion queens like Violet, Aquaria, Tyra and Raja. Queens like Sharon Needles, Jinkx, and Yvie remind Ru of how he's a "rebel" and takes him back to his younger days as a "genderfuck" queen. Ru obviously thinks he's pretty funny so that explains Bianca and Bob the Drag Queen. Maybe Bebe is an outlier, but only because it was the first season and more tongue in cheek. It wouldn't surprise me if Ru really wanted to crown Gigi this season, but due to her idiotic actions (trying to cheat, those tone deaf comments, etc.) she had to give it to Jaida.
Anyway, this is why I don't think we'd ever get a big girl winner, for example. It's just not an image that Ru has in his mind of himself.

It knows everything about everything, has hung out with all the stars and knows their intimate secrets, and it's always whites and gays that it hates. And if you're a black gay or biracial it calls you a liar, because it has posted "I am the only black gay man on the DataLounge."
Just avoid stepping on it, or your shoes will never be the same.

R268, I hate to cast doubt on someone who says they’re victimized, but I don’t think he’s telling the whole truth here. Something’s missing.
There was something very wrong with Billy B on Drag Race and I think there was a reason for his short tenure. The critiques he gave to a lot of queens went beyond the limit of constructive criticism. He was very toxic, nasty, and malicious. There was a mean spiritedness that went beyond Michael Kors gay bitchery.
Maybe they initially targeted him for being gay and things escalated from there. But I can imagine him reacting in a way that totally escalated things and made him into a real target.

Do gays really want to watch gay men be nasty to each other on TV? Isn't that a relic of Boys In the Band and the closeted era? I don't mind attitude but I've had my fill of bitchy, "mean girl" gays from my days at the bar. Of course, I can always come to Datalounge for mass quantities of cuntitude.
These queens are already sick of World of Wonder deciding who is the hero and who is the villain through the show's editing so I doubt that any queen with experience and self-worth would agree to be cast on the show as a villain. Only the thirstiest, amateurish queens would sign up for that.

I guess Brita was only being a bitch because she was insecure/"in her head." Unlike Raven, it's not her natural state.

I still love that Tyra was singing a Beyonce song (I think Halo) and had to "recreate" the singing scene alone do to that.
After rewatching season 2 a few times over the years, I do think that Tyra deserved to win. Especially when you take into account that their track-records played a larger role in determining the winner. Tyra only scored low once and never had to lip-sync, unlike Raven. She "makes sense" to me in retrospect.

R264 You make a good point. It would also explain (besides the fact she deserved that kind of attention) why Ru took a lot of time and used words that actually meant something to sing Heidi's praises to the skies when she had to sashay. That was some deep feeling from Ru. (It took me a minute to adjust). While she didn't make the winner's circle, I think Heidi with the slightly-awkward-drag-name-to-some, but determined to keep it (yay!), small southern town upbringing, not the prettiest girl, but one with a lot of presence, resonated deeply with Ru deeply.
r274 I can take Trixie in small doses, and even then only when she's with Katya. Those two are better together, even more so when Trixie actually lets Katya get a fucking word in edgewise. I did watch Trixie's documentary Moving Parts, and the only touching scenes for me involved those two not getting along. When Katya relapsed, I recall via a string of texts and some on, some off camera calls, Katya fucking WENT THERE about Trixie's "level" of talent. sometimes, in drugs, truth. Even before he got the full brunt of Katya's anger, Trixie was afraid if Katya quit their duo, he wouldn't be as funny or interesting. CORRECT!

I find Bob and Trixie to have really similar personalities and I don't enjoy either of them.
Alaska broke her AS2 NDA and told her ex everything who then spilled it all on social media when he apparently found out she had cheated on him. So the entire season was spoiled before it even aired.

Fans don’t like her, and as much as reality producers try to push this narrative, no one is endeared to the audience because they’re a “superfan”. It’s clear that all the queens have watched the seasons multiple times. It’s like saying going to a pizza party and saying “Hey, does anyone like pizza? I sure do!”. A nothing, obvious observation.

I am not sure what you mean by fans don't like her. She ended up doing about 20+ digital drag shows because her shows all sold out. She has one of the higher social media followings and is popular on reddit / platforms. She is worth millions. Lots of the drag queens are not super fans of the show at all - some don't even watch.

Alaska deserved the boot in Episode 1 for storming off set like a dumb cunt during the underwater shoot. And then showing up in Saran Wrap.

Alaska has been back on Drag Race several times. She was an Anna Wintour type providing commentary during Season 7's first episode runway show. It's probably the best Alaska ever looked in that fake pink Chanel suit, blonde bob and sunglasses. Alaska and Chad did the weekly appearance in Handmaid's Tale Drag during one of the worst All Stars Seasons. I don't remember, but they were in every episode bitch. Alaska won every Lip Synch that she ever participated in and she and Jujubee are the only two queens to win the Reading Challenge twice. Alaska kisses RuPaul's ass all day and night on Race Chasers and every other chance she gets. I don't think she has any versatility to her looks, but she's a good actress and performer. She put out some of the more clever "music" of the RuGirls too. I'm not a big fan, but Alaska and Bianca are always named as the two queens who could actually replace RuPaul on his own show.

R314 - it quite likely was that just after filming of AS2 wrapped, her ex spilled all of the details of AS2 including the twists, boot order, and conflicts on set (storylines). He was mad that Alaska had cheated on him and released videos of her telling him all the details (breaking her NDA). Likely since filming was done and they knew she was the front runner, they just brushed that under the rug and AS2 went ahead as planned. However I am sure Wow was not particularly happy with her! She has worked with them on small things since then and she tries to be super positive about Ru, the show and Wow but it seems it is a strained relationship

RuPaul is a white woman from L.A and fucking Montana. New age SHITE gets you nowhere when you're contributing to the worst actions of society by your silence, or better yet - evolved spiritual beliefs. Shit got real. RuPaul is in hiding. The extreme deprivation of Botox and Restylane have caused him to remain quiet. He does enjoy his "girls", but he's nothing like them. They amuse him.

A cute boy who is sexy with himself. Bonjor! The night I met my boyfriend, we watched some old strange movie from 1932? Freaks. Miss Cracker looks like one specific pinhead from that flick.
Being a bitch won't hurt Cracker. Her review with a Jew gives us full view of her whole package. Her kind of neurosis only allows her to pretend to be interested in other people. She only can ask a question when she has some nervous comeback ready. The rest is monologue. Sometimes All Stars reveals a previously admired queen to be not much at all. See Chi Chi Devayne, Morgan Michaels and Valentina.

Chi Chi was recently diagnosed with some chronic illness that I believe affects her joints. It emerged around the time that she did All Stars, so that may be why she looked out of it.

R370 Apparently, Chi Chi didn't even have time to create/couldn't afford outfits for her All Stars season and had to make everything in the hotel room/work room the day before.
Chi Chi was also diagnosed with scleroderma not too long after, so I'm sure that affected her as well. I think Chi Chi just gave up and wanted to go home. You can tell it's really affected her appearance. Apparently she can't even do her own makeup anymore due to the effects of it.

Chi Chi also revealed on her Instagram about a year ago that she started the process of transitioning in her late teens ("for all the wrong reasons"), but stopped because she reacted so badly to the hormone treatments.

r379 I didn't like the split first episodes of season 6 (or this last season) Just give me all 12 queens from the jump. A lot of the queens were annoying - Trinity, Laganja, Josilyn, Magnolia..there was just a lot of filler and a lot of personalities on that season.
|by Anonymous||reply 380||06/16/2020|
R379, I personally think 8 is worse than 7, but still better than 11. There were a lot of rotten, unlikable personalities on that season like Derrick, Robbie, Kim, Naomi, and even Thorgy (who has admittedly shined on her TLC show, but came across terribly on that season). Not to mention the utter boredom of Naysha, Dax, and Laila.
It was Bob’s season to win, but even he got on my nerves with the constant showboating.

R381 The thing I find funny about Thorgy, is that no matter how obnoxious and irritating she was about Bob getting all the attention and it being rigged in his favor... she wasn't WRONG!! So for that, I can't really dislike her. And then she also knew that the producers/Todrick were rigging it (which might be too strong of a word) in AS3 by giving her only twirling to do for her choreography, compared to Shangela who had an entire routine!

Chi Chi just isn't that talented. It was a basic hunger that we saw. He's cute as a boy too. But he's not very smart at all and his expensive elevated fashion on All Stars was worse than his trash bag couture. Sweet guy. Not a bad dancer. Very dumb.
All Stars makes OR breaks alumni queens. Except when the rules are unfair and kicks off clear winners like Manila and Shangela. Latrice was a disappointment as an allstar, twice. Tammy Brown would be the same. That dude is homely, uncooperative and seriously nutes. They can still be loved for their original seasons. Latrice's sense of entitlement when she returned was a big turnoff. Miz Cracker is not acting entitled - but he's working overtime to prove himself a bitchy fun winner baby. Miz Cracker is not fun. He laughs out loud at himself. Often. She's acid reflux in a wig.

In addition to his old face, it's odd to watch Alaska in season 5. I've become so used to her present persona, so seeing how insecure she was is interesting.

Drag Race started out as a TV show but evolved into a Launch Pad for drag performers. These queens learned that bitchiness on camera hurts ticket sales so they put on a nicey-nice act for the camera which of course makes for boring TV.

R212 "Customers with less than $20 bills were not allowed to approach him when he performed."
I can vouch for that. Saw him perform around 2000-2001, and he stopped the show and bitched out the audience for not tipping him $20 or more. Then he stood at the back of the stage for the remainder of the "performance". To make matters worse, the club owners had to build a temporary plywood wall to create a walkway for him to get to the stage, to avoid the patrons. The club paid him $17k to perform there from what I was told by the staff. Plus it was $20 to even get in the door.
He was a total asshole the whole time, and acted like he didn't even want to be there in the first place.

She's quick and charming and a great performer on stage - no one gets booked for more weddings and corporate gigs than Jujubee. He's taken an interesting path - not wanting to travel far from Boston for too long. He was part of a pretty happy couple for a long time. Seemingly. So I don't think Juju is contracted to win. Same as Bendela. Jujubee is not going to travel the world being a Ru Girl. His long term relationship ended, he got sober and lost a bit of his fun. He WAS seriously into drugs.

I don't love Katya at all. But she's got a great look. All of it. That dudes' face is made for drag. He's almost a woman, but he purposefully works against that. He could be a total knockout any day he wanted. But he always makes something ugly or weird or subversive about it. His eyes sockets and facial shape take makeup like a dream. He's always known that good WIGS are important. He doesn't vary his makeup much but he loves to fuck with fashion and expectations. (ok, I do kind of like him on second thought:) The most noticeable thing about the recent Katya is that perfect nose job!! Very subtle - but he was very lucky. It's obvious that he's a smart guy about certain aspects of his life. The results make his face even more symmetrical. Though it wasn't necessary and is no doubt a manifestation of his functioning mental illness and guilt over having too much money.
A few contestants need teeth work and a good dermatologist. But I still enjoy drag as Female Illusion. Look at Manilla. He's gorgeous and feminine and flirtatious and PRETTY in Drag. Very skilled in proportion and very inventive within his "brand." But he's a thin lipped tall Asian dude with no eyebrows or eyelashes out of Drag. Bags under his eyes. Masculine body postures and angles. He's a top for sure. That's one of many reasons why Manila is one of the greatest contestants of all time. She's camp and pretty, girly even. At times, but as a DRAG QUEEN. Not someone who blows up their lips and changes their physique to better resemble a biological female. Manila lives his life as a man. A bitchy gay man, ha, but he's not straddling genders. I am not a fan of Willam, Alaska and Bianca's sudden embrace of all things non binary. What bullshit. Greed. Manilla likes a pretty boyfriend. Lots of us do. He's a top Drag Queen and a sexy creative guy. He's artistic, not confused. It ain't all about the paint and fashion. There's an art to it.

I don’t see a nose job...

Katya didn't get a fucking nose job. The putz who was going on about it doesn't know about contouring, apparently.

R470. Putz? What are you - an 80 year old white FAG? I might have missed a few birthdays.
Katya did just have her nose straightened. If you read my post you would realize I am aware of what contouring can do. I'm aware of what good drag queens do. What a fool you are. Don't call a proud beautiful man a putz just because he comments on the facial surgery of your crush. Aiiiite?
Lights out gramps.

"Aiiiite?" Aren't you the badass? *eyeroll*
Katya's nose is the same now as it has been for fucking ages. The nose job is in your head. Also, California only allowed elective procedures to resume at the end of April. She would still be swollen if she got her nose done that recently.

Katya's teeth are her own btw. She would never put veneers on. She's proud of wearing braces and doing whitening procedures to her perfect teeth. She went on about it all the time when she was tweaking. She did just have her nose straightened though. In January.

Look at this bitch going on about herself and her brilliance with her fake voices and her obsession with her teeth. The pain of fan expectations. The torture of being loved but now known. Katya attracts the sickest of fans, no doubt. He's a good looking bitch in drag, but tweaker is not really a drag queen at all. More of a psychotic who found a profitable outlet. Post prostitution. Lifelong meth heads are brain damaged forever. And yes, R472, I am. Aiiiite?

By her own admission, she lies a lot when she's high so... Wow, it is indeed a slow news day. I wonder if Katya's ears (or nose) is burning.

Huh that was 4 years ago. I recall during her breakdown she posted a rant in pretty good French., so ex meth still has brain cells.

r460 - Jiggly got her teeth fixed and she lost a ton of weight - she is actually stunning now.
|by Anonymous||reply 477||06/24/2020|
Jiggly had more than her teeth fixed. She transitioned to being a woman. That pic is not great but she does look good in real life and seems much happier. It's hard to argue with success. Peppermint is one of my favorite Drag Race personalities ever. She's very outspoken at times, but what a wonderful spirit she has. Plus the bitch is good at what she does. Every movement needs a leader. Peppermint represents so many things as a Trans Woman that these confused and lying other Drag Race contestant bitches haven't the confidence to say or be. Be who you are, but don't pander. Be like Peppermint. I love her. That what All Stars 5 really needs is Pep. But I don't think she'll be back.... because.
When I see Katya and Trixie and Bob overpraised for their neurotic, unattractive work and hideous looks it makes me appreciate the real Drag Race performers more. Trinity Taylor, Kennedy, Jaida, Aquaria, Shea, Shangela, Bendela, Jinkx, Ginger, Detox, Mariah and Juju. Lots of others too.

Peppermint seems tiresome. And keep her away from Broadway.

I see the humour-vacuum, thought police from Reddit have arrived and sucked all the enjoyment from this thread. Nobody gives a fuck if you like Peppermint. She’s not on the bloody show. The season is a bit meh but better than watching paint dry.

I'm glad Shea wins, just to get it over with.
But I still wish Juju had taken the crown.
At least it's the end of Cracker's thirstiness.

There’s no ‘there’ there with Shea. She’s boring and will add nothing to the WOW brand, like Trinity and Monet before her.

Sharon Needles is cancelled.
I have no idea if her accuser is male or female.
|by Anonymous||reply 490||Last Sunday at 4:19 PM|
As best I can tell it's a girl who IDs as non-binary. She has lots of issues, but Sharon clearly took advantage of them.

R492 Totally normal drag queen behaviour. Why the fuck was Sharon hanging with a 15 year old girl? Dumb drunk drugged slut.

Didn't Aquaria hang out with Sharon when she was underaged and became Sharon's drag daughter. I bet she has some stories.

Drag was never intended for the PG (PG-13 at most) audience it has now. Many of the people involved in the scene are, by their own admission, fucked up, were fucked up, end up fucked up and sometimes all three. Not clutching my pearls on this non story. A drag queen who goes by Sharon Needles is/was/remains a drugged out, fucked up, inappropriate mess. HOW SHOCKING!
