Hope you’re enjoying your Fourth of July weekend! We couldn’t deprive you of updates on your favorite Drag Race queens, so here’s the latest from the dolls, including some fun videos that are sure to add some sizzle to your holiday weekend. Let’s get to it!
Willam and Alaska recap the “Queens in Space” episode of Drag Race season three on “Race Chaser Classique”. The pair also discuss the latest “Hot Goss”, including World Pride in NYC and the democratic debates in the latest serving of dish. You can check out both on the Forever Dog network.
One of the stories Willam and Alaska cover is Willam’s appearance on the HGTV series House Hunters. On the episode, which someone kindly uploaded to YouTube, Willam and his BFF Anthony go in search of the ultimate party compound in Palm Springs. If Willam was on this show every week, I would definitely watch it. (And does anyone actually think Willam actually bought that place? And, if he did, do you think I could get an invite to a party there?)
On Monday, the wonderful Miss Coco Peru shared another new video with us. This time she takes on another shopping spree where she discusses Reese’s cups, discovers Egglets and more.
I never had a doubt that RuPaul would one day take over the world, and Mama Ru is once again expanding her empire. Are you ready for Drag Race Canada? Of this latest spin-off, Ru said, “I am proud to announce that the Drag Race family is expanding as Crave is about to begin production on DRAG RACE CANADA. The panel and judges will be from the Great White North, representing Canada’s very best. This new franchise has my whole-hearted blessing. Good luck…and don’t puck it up!” Can we have Brooke Lynn Hytes as host?
Willam posted a new “Beatdown” in honor of her birthday (and Happy Birthday, queen!) on Vimeo. In this (definitely) NSF episode, she takes on the rap “hit” “Can I Touch…?” with the most unlikely performer ever, a dramatic catfight and a “vocal enthusiast” doing her best to pay tribute to Whitney Huston. Definitely check this one out.
BenDeLaCreme spoke with Billboard about her latest show, Ready to Be Committed and her upcoming wedding to her long-term partner. (Congrats, Ben!) When asked her thoughts on the institution of marriage, DeLa said, “Everyone has to build their own relationship to it. We’re fed ideas about marriage and what love is and the concept of ‘the one.’ Between fairy tales and romcoms, no matter how much we want to resist having that defined for us, we all have this happily ever after idea implanted in our head. So how do we change that to think about making decisions every day about ‘how do I be a good partner to the person I choose?’”
I love a good makeup tutorial, and season 11’s Ariel Versace delivers with this video showing how to achieve a “naughty neutral” look with Betsey Johnson cosmetics.
If you’re looking for ways to update your hair game, Miz Cracker is here with a “Jewtorial” on creating epic pigtails.
Two of our favorite fashion queens, Naomi and Violet once again show us how to “Shop Like a Queen”, creating looks based on some of fashion’s most iconic figures, and talk style icons (and give some well-deserved love to Atlanta queens Phoenix and Nicole Paige Brooks.
On the latest episode of “Sibling Rivalry”, Bob The Drag Queen and Monét X Change discuss the merits of releasing an EP versus an album, Lizzo, education, standardized testing and corporal punishment. These two could read the phone book and I would tune in.
Lastly, the lovely Farrah Moan talks with Jonny and Lady Red Couture on the latest “Hey Qween!”
Enjoy the rest of your weekend and we will be back with you with more Drag Race news next week! Until then, everybody say LOVE!
