Michelle Visage Is Heading to BBCThree, Manila Luzon’s ‘Go Fish’ & More — The Week in Drag
This week’s RuPaul’s Drag Race All-Stars saw a surprise elimination and a tribute to Mama Ru’s second favorite Judy (after Judge Judy, of course), the legendary Judy Garland. Our regular recappers had lots to say about the fits and fashions on the runway. Check out the latest episodes of a Nicole Byer-less “What the Tuck?” and the always amusing Willam and Alaska on “Race Chasers.”
All-Stars 3 and season 2 alum (the fabulous) Morgan McMichaels, joins Trixie Mattel on “The Pit Stop.”
Michelle Visage spoke with the eliminated queen on this week’s “Whatcha Packin””
Raja and Aquaria share their weekly toots and boots on “Fashion Photo Ruview.”
Manila Luzon dropped a new video for her song “Go Fish” on Friday and, watching it explains her runaway lewks from last week’s episode. The video features some familiar faces, including Naomi Smalls and last week’s featured flashback interviewee, Delta Werk. The video features a full-fledged “Heathers” reunion with Delta, Raja and Carmen Carerra. Manila’s hubby, Michael, even makes an appearance. Check it out.
Manila also shares the inspiration behind her “Queen of Clubs” look in the latest “Fineapple Coture”
Did you hear Lizzo give Monique Heart a shout-out on The Late Show with Jimmy Fallon? (“Juice” is totally my jam right now, by the way.)
Pandora Boxx penned a sweet essay remembering her “Snatch Game” inspiration, the late, great Carol Channing. “She radiated joy with just one shake and shimmy.”
Good news for British drag fans. RuPaul’s Drag Race is going “across the pond” and launching a UK version of the series. Michelle Visage will be a judge on the eight-episode series, set to air on BBCThree.
Also this week, Michelle underwent surgery to remove her breast implants. She shared a post-op pic on Instagram, announcing that “the toxins are gone” and thanking her fans (including many RPDR alums) for their support. Best wishes for a speedy recovery, Michelle.
This story popped up earlier this week (and was quickly debunked by Jackie Beat on Twitter), but wouldn’t it be great if it were true. I would absolutely love a “Drag Race Legends” competition. Seeing Varla Jean Merman, Lady Bunny and Miss Coco Peru (among others) lip sync for their lives would be television magic!
See you next week for more goops and gags!
