If “ifs” and “buts” were candy and nuts, then every day would be RuPaul’s Drag Race. On the latest episode of Drag Race, RuPaul loses her shit over all the excuses the contestants make after messing up a challenge.

Joining us today is the fierce Chicago queen Shea Couleé, who has spent many night knob gobbling around town with two of contestants from this season, Trixie Mattel and Pearl.


  1. ya’ll should have a marriage counselor as a future guest because sheesh. What a ride this show was. Good thing Shea was there to break the ice and keep things from turning reeeeally awkward. But hey, the show wouldn’t be what it was if Marc and Fausto tried to play the game of being a annoyingly saccharine, perfect couple who always gets a long.

  2. Curtis says:

    A queen can’t get a “bad edit” on a reality show if you don’t give them plenty of “bad” material. Trixie and Pearl are getting the edit they serve. The editors cannot create a villian from someone who is never a bitch and they can’t make someone sympathetic if all you do is bitch about everything.

  3. Curtis says:

    Your read of “You’ve got she-mail” is off base IMO. It was a direct parody of the “You’ve got Tyra-mail” on “America’s Next Top Model” (used EVERY episode) and a repeated joke (as you well know) like that transcends a mere joke and becomes part of the language of the show. It’s why catchphrases are part of the experience of comedy, it’s connective tissue between episodes, it’s how any show weaves a world and identity.

  4. Curtis says:

    re: Michelle getting the villain edit. I think you are exaggerating what’s happening on the show, that said – see above (you get the edit you serve the editors)and maybe it’s time that Michelle’s narrow and specific views on what passes for legit in drag are challenged a bit. She regularly goes after people she thinks are “giving her boy” – why dictate what is the right way to do drag? It’s one thing to call out amateur makeup application (that is constructive criticism) but she often criticizes drag style issues and the magic of drag is that it is a revolutionary rebellious art form IMO. She sometimes has a tendency to hold certain kinds of drag back.

  5. Curtis says:

    Shea’s evaluation of the D&G situation is WAY off base. Of course the condemnation of D&G should be public, as public as possible. Private conversations are not enough. Shea also seems to miss the potential impact of their statement. The right wing loves to pull this stuff and say “See, even Gay people think these families are evil and unnatural” It was a PUBLIC statement for fuck’s sake. the reaction should be public and there should be repercussions.

    And when Shea creates something as brilliant and entertaining as Ryan Murphy has he can start giving career advice. Most shows decline in quality and creativity over time. I think declaring American Horror Story creatively bankrupt after one season is pretty silly, especially considering the previous season (Coven) was by many standards it’s best.

  6. Curtis says:

    here’s an example of how the right wing is using D&G comments:

    If masturbating led to a longer dick, I’d be 12 inches. I’m not, so I don’t believe that fact. 😉

    I was disappointed and highly annoyed at Shea’s (and it would seem Fausto’s) attitude to the Dolce and Gabbana issue. She seems to feel that because D&g and Elton John are rich people that we shouldn’t give a damn about what they have to say. Jealous much? The D&G statement was a highly offensive and judge mental one, which frontally attacked a whole class of people, same sex couples raising children and others who use assisted fertilization methods. This is not something that was just their “personal” opinion as they have later claimed. Read the statement. They used words like “wrong” in relation to same sex families. They cose words like “synthetic” to refer to the children and “rented wombs” in relation to surrogacy. How on earth could this be seen just as a private dispute between rich people. The logic baffles me. The site that I first noticed the story on is Breibart News, which is an ultra right-wing, anti-gay outlet and you don’t have to guess why they found D&G’s statement so wonderful. No people, we need to be aware of when our rights are being attacked and put aside our celebrity-basing instincts . Marc’s assessment was spot on but his voice was drowned out.

  9. Geez guys…..thanks for ruining RPDR for me!!! I can’t see Trixie on screen without picturing his massive dong! I can’t concentrate on the competition!

  10. There are some good scholarly books on the history of drag. I would recommend anthropologist Esther Newton’s “Mother Camp: Female Impersonators in America” (1972), Shakespearean scholar Marjorie Garber’s “Vested Interests: Cross-dressing and Cultural Anxiety” (1997), and Laurence Selenik’s “The Changing Room : Sex, Drag and Theatre” (2000). Another source is “Drag: A History of Female Impersonation in the Performing Arts” by Roger Baker.
