I have to confess something: the Queen wasn’t really very excited about blogging Drag Race. It was Bianca who convinced me to commit to it. And it was you Miss Things who made it one of the most rewarding experiences of my life.
I know that sounds very dramatic. But I am, after all, a sometimes flamboyant homosexual male.
So here are a few more Highlights and Low-Lifes from Monday’s show.
Let’s All call her Jiggly
The Queen takes it all back: this girl is ‘Hood all the way.
"My brother gave me a gift, like after his tax return check came, he decided to give me sewing lessons..."
Cute reference–even if the bit fell a bit flat. I wonder how many of the young queens actually knew who Charo was?
"RuPaul, I very confused...I cannot understand a word that bitch is saying!"
Let’s Drag it out even more
It was wonderful to see Ru’s self-mocking of the fuckery involved with the bait and switch in the Finale.
"Ladies and gentleman: to set the record straight about Willam...you'll have to tune into this season's premier of RuPaul's Drag U coming this summer on Logo. Just kidding! JK Miss Thing!"
Boyfriend got what he wanted: infamy and his own segment. So they say it was conjugal visits with his partner. Yeah. Right. If that actually were the case, then I’d REALLY be pissed, because you KNOW other queens have had boys in over the last four seasons.
Large and in Charge
And the right person won Miss Congeniality. Condragulations to a FIERCE BLACK QUEEN.
Phi Phi’s Phinish
Very satisfying conclusion to Miss O’Hara’s story. The Queen didn’t even mind sitting through another session of Jiggly’s water works. And whatever else you might say about him, he looked STUNNING.
"I'm a egomaniac--everybody knows that, but like...she should be studied down there...I don't understand it. It's almost sociopathic the way she'll tell people, um, it was "..just a character I'm just playing it up." And then she'll sign autographs: 'Fuck Willam', 'Fuck Sharon' It's not cool. And I understand that it's a game; and I never retaliated on the show because I didn't care. And indifference is worse than hate and I'm not going to Rupologize for anything that I'm doing now."
“Oh bitch! Oh bitch! Consider that word STOLEN honey! My new album will be called “Rupologize” on iTunes.”
I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: this bitch is FIERCE. Leave it to Willam to provide the perfect climax. From Day 1, this dude got the fact that RPDR
is entertainment. He understood his place in the competition and handled it better than any other queen I’ve seen play the game. It must be so refreshing to be able to play the bitch by being honest. Thank you SO much Willam for understanding that the fans would have been royally pissed if Phi Phi didn’t get a good dressing down by someone. If you still read the Queen’s blog, I have to say that I expect greater and greater things from you. I don’t consider myself a conventional “fan”, but I’ll be watching you and Sharon as such. You both are testaments to staying true to artistry and your vision. It has, and will be an honor to watch both of you rise in celebrity and craft.
Once. Twice. Three times a Lady.
Truer words were never spoken.
RuPaul: Chad Michaels, I want to thank you for elevating this beautiful race to the highest. You are a Class Act.
The Queen is going through one of the most challenging periods in his half a century on this planet. Sometimes I’m not sure I’m going to make it through. Waking up in a funk, and then realizing that you have special folk to talk to around subjects that inspire passion, suddenly makes life beautiful for a little while. And the gift of having two of the contestants take an interest in my blog was icing on the cake. Thank you Willam. Thank you Sharon. And especially, Miss Things–thank you SO MUCH for making my life beautiful. Now that RPDR has come to a close for the season, I am supremely blessed to have you all and Bianca in my life. I look forward to our next beautiful adventure.
In the words of the Diva who brought us all together: “If you can’t love yourself…how in the HELL are you gonna love anyone else?”
And fabulous accessories.
