Excuses, Excuses - RuPaul's Drag Race


The dog ate my homework blah blah blah ...

There was a bit of drama (nothing major) at Chez Dust last night - which prevented me from reviewing RuPaul's Drag Race and my notes again.  Therefore I cannot write my recap today, and really won't have time to do it this week.  I truly apologize and will try again next week.  I ESPECIALLY apologize to DustBunny M, to whom I owe One Sassy Recap.

Here are a few talking points regarding this week's episode...
  • I LOVED this week's challenge.  Having the relatively young Dolls "create" their Drag Mothers was hysterical and an excellent idea.
  • Did you see the look on Tati's mama's face when Tati said she didn't know who Oscar Wilde was?  I thought old Annalisha was going to cut a Ho.  Can you imagine what would have gone down had young Tatianna said she didn't really know who Judy Garland was?!?  Blasphemy!!!
  • Pandora's mama cracked me up.  She was a TRIP: red, white and blue bikini, secret plastic "toys", and dirty talk.  I wanna party with that old girl.
  • The fact that Raven bonded with her Radical Faerie-esque drag mother touched me.  I identified with them because I once had a close gay male friend who was in his 70's.  Bill (God rest his soul) was a delight and I miss him and his friendship terribly.
  • Biggest LOL moment?  When Juju said "None of these old bitches better die overnight!!!"  OMG ... too funny!
  • And what about the judges?!?  Cloris Leachman (who is 83 years old, btw!!!) and DEBBIE FRIGGIN' REYNOLDS!!  I think a couple of those old girls peed a little when they heard Ms. Reynold's name.  In their world - which was chocked full of "movie stars" - Debbie Reynolds was/is one of the biggest and brightest.  AND, she was involved in one of the biggest scandals of that era - when Elizabeth Taylor stole her husband, Eddie Fisher.
  • More about the judges.  I can't remember who received these compliments, but when Cloris Leachman says "you are funny", or Debbie Reynolds praises your dancing, you should needlepoint that shizz onto a huge wall tapestry and hang it up in your living room.  Immediately.
  • Finally, I was sad, sad, sad to see Pandora go.
Feel free to leave any thoughts you may have in the Comments section.

Look forward to tracking it down on the interwebz. Somewhere I read that VH1 rebroadcasts it. Will have to ask the kids where in the heck that station is on our system...

Froggy - yes, it was on last night at 9pm on VH1.

I was also very sorry to see Pandora go. But Litter Boxx showed her up....

XOXOXOXOXOXO

And Debbie is Princess Leia!

Raven is my fave and was happy to see her win but I really thought it should have been that bitch Tyra.

I love the box as well in no way should she have gone home - especially considering how bad Juju was this week.

I actually like this recap better - I know how much work you put into the other and appreciate it but I really just enjoyed reading your thought and opinions. Thanks.

This episode had me rolling, especially the untucked right afterward.

Juju and Raven with their commentary. They have no sense.

Please be advised that Raven (shudder) created Golda Lame (spelled like cheap shiny fabric) - not Golda LeMay (spelled like a French Vermonter's fifth month).
No relation.

I was sad that Pandora had to sashay away. She was my favorite.

I too was a Pandora fan and was so sad to see her go. I do love this show and am having fun watching. This week was great with the older queens. So funny!

I am very sad to see Pandora Boxx leave, so much talent and fun. When she did not win the celebrity telethon contest, I knew they would never appreciate her. Why is Santino, you know the loser of Project Runway, even a judge for fashion on the show. I have a feeling Tyra is going win it.

I really liked Pandora too. I was rooting for Tatianna, but my support has shifted. Now I want Jujubee to win. She has the looks AND the wit to be America's next drag superstar.

Raven and Tyra are definitely NOT "superstar" material with their bad attitudes. They need to carry their stank asses on back home.
