Last night, RuPaul’s Drag Race fans were left absolutely stunned as one of the two favorites to win this season, Thorgy Thor, was sent packing after an amazing lip sync against Chi Chi Devayne. Whereas Chi Chi slayed the house down, we were all shocked as Thorgy has been consistently good throughout and no one saw this coming. That brings me to the point of this piece.

Last time, Acid Betty went home, and I’m conflicted. I thought she had some DAMN good outfits, and I’m sure there was producer interference, but sheesh, she was mean. [Read more…] about RuPaul’s Drag Race RuCap: Elmira Gulch Realness
Our favorite show on television to kiki about on Manhattan Digest is of course RuPaul’s Drag Race. Tonight is another sickening episode, where the cast of Little Women: LA join the seven remaining girls to do their interpretation of “The Wizard Of Oz”, with special guest Marc Jacobs and not so special guest Todrick Hall (sorry, not really. I don’t get his appeal). It is going to be another night of amazing looks on the runway, which brings us to another great Top 10 list of who we think had the most gag-worthly looks over the past eight seasons of RPDR.

RuPaul’s Drag Race is continuing to pound the pavement with its seven remaining contestants after this lackluster episode of “Snatch Game” where Derrick continued to do the same thing every week to no affect and we are left wondering how awesome Cynthia Lee Fontaine would’ve been. Speaking of Cynthia, she is the one contestant so far this season that I think has been considered underrated, in terms of just how amazing her potential is. Getting eliminated for a role that wasn’t going to be funny no matter how you acted it (Empire challenge), she had a lot left to give and wasn’t given the chops or the TV time in order to prove how great she is. This can be said for the Top 10 list that I’ve created of queens that had a lot going for them while on Drag Race, but were overshadowed for so many different reasons. Some of these queens in my book could’ve gone the distance or even won the whole damn thing, but alas… didn’t. This is who I think deserved to get a lot more than they did, and who I root for to this very day. [Read more…] about The 10 Most Underrated Queens of All Time on RuPaul’s Drag Race

Let’s face it- RuPaul’s Drag Race has been one of the best reality shows ever, if not the best when it comes to highlighting the LGBT community in a positive light for the most part (season 7 taken out of this), and also put Drag Queens in a mainstream light that no one really saw coming before. The show has brought so many memorable phrases that straight culture has stolen because they can’t figure out their own shit, from “Hunty”, “All Tea All Shade”, and so much more that has practically become part of our everyday dialogue with each other. With 7 seasons (plus All Stars) under its belt and being a couple episodes of what is shaping up to being a fantastic season 8, memorable queens have come and gone that we have come to worship for more reasons than one. So question being, who has been the best of the best since the show premiered many years ago? How do we define best, really? For us, it is who did we come to love for many reasons on the show and their cultural impact post-race. We have come up with our top ten of the Best Drag Race contestants of all time. Do you agree? Disagree? Sound off. [Read more…] about The Top Ten Best Queens of All Time on RuPaul’s Drag Race
Previously on RuPaul’s Drag Race, the queens had an acting challenge and then had to roller skate. Cynthia went home, which makes us all sad, and Robbie continued to depress us by making excuses for herself. [Read more…] about RuPaul’s Drag Race RuCap: Why Did Ru “Call Her?”

Another year, another season of RuPaul’s Drag Race! With the show premiering this Monday night, let’s get you started by meeting the queens, many are from the NYC area. They can’t be worse than last year!! Here is my honest take on each.
Get your engines ready, hunties, because our favorite reality show, RuPaul’s Drag Race, is revving up its engines for Season 8 in two weeks. To coincide with its premiere, they had a huge event last night at the one and only Stage 48 to showcase the 12 new queens vying for the title that have helped legends in the making from Sharon Needles to Raja win and go on to bigger and better things. Our guest writer, the handsome and talented Matt Belvedere, covered the event for Manhattan Digest, and got the inside scoop from all the new queens, and the old (I mean really old) ones including Bianca Del Rio (hehe). Check it out.
