VH1 GREENLIGHTS ‘RuPaul’s DRAG RACE’ FOR A 13th SEASON

VH1 has renewed RuPaul’s Drag Race for a 13th season. The cable network also ordered new seasons of RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars and RuPaul’s Drag Race: Untucked. In announcing the pickups, VH1 said that RuPaul’s Drag Race season 12 was the highest-rated season in the franchise’s history. RuPaul’s Drag Race earned 13 Emmy nominations this year. “Drag queens have been on the frontlines of…

RUPAUL’S DRAG RACE ALL STARS: SEASON 5, EPISODE 8 – “CLAP BACK”

Having grown accustomed to season-ending lip sync smackdowns (and even a virtual finale that exceeded most expectations), the All Stars finales are starting to feel a little “small” by comparison. A choreographed group number with an original solo already feels like a retread of earlier challenges, even if the difficulty has been ratcheted up. When Shea originally…

RUPAUL’S DRAG RACE ALL STARS: SEASON 5, EPISODE 7 – “STAND-UP SMACKDOWN”

RUPAUL’S DRAG RACE ALL STARS: SEASON 5, EPISODE 3 – “GET A ROOM”

I don’t know about you, but my fragile state of mind couldn’t possible withstand such a ruthless Drag Race coup as was teased Friday night on All Stars. Had the ladies acted to oust this season’s (former?) frontrunner, it would’ve been forever known as The Red Runway. Luckily, however, we got away with just a slight scare. It…
