RuPaul is pissed and people are pissed off at RuPaul!

RuPaul’s is pissed because this season of Drag Race has more leaks than a screen door on a submarine and it looks like the hole isn’t getting plugged up any time soon.

Folks are even more upset because RuPaul keeps sending the wrong queens home, first with Tempest DuJour and now one the most popular girls from this season.

    the whites only stickers were posted up by a lawyer, who is a bit looney tunes in the head, he has a small criminal past too. The stores he targeted were local businesses, that I am pretty sure have never promoted racism, so it was a complete misfire, because gentrification in East Austin is a big issue, but I don’t think this creep is the best advocate for this issue.

    anyhoo, Debbie was a hoot! I have yet to watch a single episode of RPDR, but I don’t mind all the shows about it.

      Yeah there is a huge difference between making a general point about racism and damaging the reputations of businesses that nobody has ever accused of racist practices. I was in Queer Nation and we never targetted any business that hadn’t been specifically accused of wrongdoing.

      I didn’t think that was a very complete or fair description of the Barney Frank situation. Frank has had a long standing principle about outing other politicians. It is known in politics as the “Frank Rule” – as he once described it, “I think there’s a right to privacy. But the right to privacy should not be a right to hypocrisy. People who want to demonize other people shouldn’t then be able to go home and close the door, and do it themselves.” Schock has a solidly anti-Gay voting record and certainly seems Gay . Frank didn’t actually say outright that he is gay (spare me that weird body shaming analysis – that was REACHING boys – did you really feel oppressed by the suggestion that working out that much is a Gay thing? ). Frank has earned the right to comment on someone as obviously closeted as Schock. If anyone deserves a good outing it is Schock.

      Debbie was great but nobody should be so proud of their complete disengagement with politics. That was sad.

    Trixie’s elimination was complete bulls*it. At least when paired up against Pearl. Pearl looked like a full-blown Alzheimer’s infected Norma Desmond on the runway and then does her lip sync number as sexy when the song called for a bubbly performance: exactly the way Trixie did it!

    I am hoping Trixie goes on to fabulous things, just like Pandora Boxx has.

    Am I the only one who think that Trixie was just … okay? I think a lot of people fell in love with her personality. I love Trixie’s personality. But she really did not stand out in the first episode. She picked a sub-par group of queens for the Amazonian Airways challenge. I barely remember her in the Shakesqueer production. And again she picked another sub-par group for the lip sync challenge in episode four. But where Trixie really excelled was in Untucked. I really enjoyed the things that Trixie said when she was just talking to the other queen. Now what Trixie has done outside of RuPaul’s Drag Race, maybe she is a killer queen, who knows. I only heard of her until this year. But let’s all be really, really honest. She was never going to win. We already had our clown last year. So in a way, I am sort of relieved she is free from the show so she can hit the ground running on capitalizing on her RuPaul’s Drag Race fame. She will be fine. Don’t cry for her Argentina. This season is mediocre at best. I almost wish she had been on the season with Bianca or the season with Sharon Needles. For some reason the odd-numbered seasons are just meh because they directly follow really good seasons.

    As for Pearl. I like Pearl. She is funny. I hope she can turn it around. At this point, I find her more appealing than Mrs. Kasha, Violet and Kandi Ho.

    I am curious to see who Trixie would have played in Snatch Game.

    Rupaul has always had a tendency toward being a bit capricious…and that would be fine if this were Season 3 and Ru was still picking the pretty queen to win. However, we are at Season 7, and Rupaul needs to pull the tampon out, sit down, and shut up (and his Jersey terrier, too). The audience backlash against him is starting, so he & Visage need to just shut up and take their medicine. In retrospect, maybe giving it to Sharon 3 years ago was a bad idea, because now the audience is going to demand that Ru explain himself on why he eliminated so-and-so….and Rupaul being who he is will tell us all to fuck off (through Visage, of course), and let the chips fall. It is sadly clear that focus for this season was really more on starting up the UK show than on the bedrock of the franchise….four episodes in, and I find myself more interested in seeing Katya’s “RUgrets” on Youtube than I am seeing Drag Race.
