My birthday is in a few days and it looks like I'm getting an early present... RuPaul's Drag Race season three starts tonight! If you look up the words "guilty pleasure" in the dictionary, there will be a picture of RuPaul's lacefront beside it. No television program, scripted or reality, comes close to the levels of hilarity this show reaches. It has it all, straight-up bitchery, endless double-entendres, desperation, hair malfunctions, dick slips (or as RuPaul puts it, "there are still some snakes on this motha-fucking plane!)... this show is genius. The greatest part? RuPaul is totally in on the joke, her shameless self-promotion is one of the funniest recurring gags.
I loved season one winner Bebe (Cameroooooon!), but was totally pissed with last season's winner Tyra. Ugh, don't get me started on Tyra... it was all about Raven. But runner-up isn't so bad! Who will be the contestant with the most C.U.N.T. (charisma, uniqueness, nerve and talent) this season? I guess we all have to tune in and find out. Here's shouldawon Raven looking like a coked-out Kelly LeBrock.
