People fell in love with Carol Channing for her iconic roles in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes and Hello Dolly and now the world is at a loss as the Broadway legend passed away last week at the age of 97.

Although many drag queens are inspired by Carol Channing, nobody is more influenced by her than drag legend Lady Bunny.

Even though it was she-larious to see “The Lady Bunny” in a casket on her debut appearance on RuPaul’s Drag Race All-Stars 4, it still gave us a moment of sadness in all the hilarity knowing that all great entertainers eventually have to return to their home planet. Raspberries!

Today Lady Bunny joins us to talk about her appearance on RuPaul’s Drag Race as the show’s first non Ru-Girl drag queen to be featured on the competition series, her recent trip to Puerto Rico and Carol Channing’s amazing life.
