RuPaul sent out a holiday greeting to promote his upcoming show RuPaul's Drag Race (more about the show in a minute) and channels both Mr. AND Mrs. Obama. Now if Ru could transform into Sasha, Malia, and (eventually) the new puppy, then I'd REALLY be impressed. Thanks to loyal Dust Bunny Wonder Man for posting this - I urge the rest of you to check out his BLOG regularly.
Ok - back to RuPaul's Drag Race. Lord have MERCY, does this ever sound like a TRAIN WRECK. Here is the official information from LOGO (emphasis mine):
Premieres Monday, Feb. 2nd on Logo and LogoOnline!
Join RuPaul, the world's most famous drag queen, as the host, mentor and judge for "RuPaul's Drag Race," Logo's new reality series which will be the ultimate in drag queen competitions. The top 9 drag queens in the U.S. will vie for drag stardom as RuPaul, in full glamazon drag, will reign supreme in all judging and eliminations, while the debonair Mr. RuPaul will help guide the contestants as they prepare for each challenge. Contestants include the nation's hottest most glamorous drag queens, including one voted in by you online!
Each week, joining RuPaul on the judges panel, are fashion journalist and best-selling author Merle Ginsberg and Project Runway breakout star and designer Santino Rice [editor's note: Ugh], plus a bevy of celebrity guest judges including: Bob Mackie (Designer), Michelle Williams (Destiny's Child), Lucy Lawless (actress), Maria Conchita Alonso (actress/singer), Robin Antin (creator of The Pussycat Dolls), Debra Wilson (Mad TV), Jenny Shimizu (model/actress), Tori Spelling (actress), Dean McDermott (actor), Howard Bragman (Author of "Where's My Fifteen Minutes?") and Frank Gatson (choreographer).
Each cast member must embody the charisma, uniqueness, nerve and talent that made RuPaul an international drag superstar. The judges will determine the bottom two contestants of the week. Those contestants then compete in a show-stopping battle-royal "lip-synch for your life" performance that will determine if they will "shante" and stay and who will "sashay" away until one is crowned America's next Drag Queen Superstar!
It's "Project Tranny"! Sweet Baby Jeebus ... that is the "celebrity" lineup of the friggin' century. Bitches, I might just have to RECAP this mess...
