The 51-year-old’s revelation occurred while out at the New York screening of indie film Burt’s Buzz on Thursday.
He finally looks authentically happy.
Authorities were called to the red carpet of The World Music Awards in Monaco on Tuesday after a frazzled Pamela Anderson surfaced looking dazed and confused after becoming a victim of the synthetic remains of a blonde wig believed to have been stolen from the Kim Zolciak Outlet in Secaucus, New Jersey.
Luckily the 46-year-old mother of two’s chola brows and heavy eye make-up — which she has willingly featured on her person since the Barb Wire press junket in 1995 — were unharmed in the attack.
While it is still unclear why the $12 glorified rat’s nest targeted Anderson, sources with the Monaco P.D. say they believe it may have gotten disoriented en route to Britney Spears’ Las Vegas residency.
Despite the barbaric incident, Pamela was still able to present at the award show.
The weave was pronounced dead at the scene.
Polar caps may be melting, airliners have gone missing and there’s a war in the House of Deréon, but my faith in humanity has been completely restored by RuPaul crowning Bianca Del Rio America’s Next Drag Superstar. Sometimes nice guys don’t finish last, even when they are reading you to filth!
While I do love Adore Delano with her drags to riches self-empowerment Cinderfella fairytale story, and no one can deny that Courtney Act sho iz pretty, neither could compare with the unstoppable force and unwavering brilliance of BDR’s rapid-fire wit, sewing skills and almost flawless execution of challenges.
Even when teamed against two Idol opponents with stellar voices, Bianca proved she didn’t need to know how to sing to hit a high note as she stole the show with her stand-out verse of the mutha fuckin’ Top Three number.
Adore became a star this season, while Courtney was so busy telling us how great she is that she actually forgot to show us. But Bianca didn’t have to learn her worth or endlessly talk up her game. A true champion never does.
In the end, B didn’t win the crown and Ru didn’t give it to her—she simply claimed what was rightfully hers from the start. And to do that definitely takes charisma, uniqueness, nerve and talent.
Here are 10 things learned watching the season six finale of RuPaul’s Drag Race:
10. For RPDR it does get better! Viacom (Logo’s parent company) has finally shown the network’s lone hit some love with an over-the-top finale that had a real budget, featuring a proper stage, backup dancers and more wigs and sequined gowns in the audience than a Real Housewives casting call. Bravo!
9. There’s a reason certain kweens go home first. Kelly Mantle and Magnolia Crawford (or was it Peg Bundy and Patsy Stone?) had three months (actually longer since the show was taped last summer) to come up with an amazing one-liner to make themselves even remotely more memorable or endearing, and their vegan/nose jokes were all that they could come up with. Sashay away.
8. With her Grace Jones-meets-Dynasty’s Dominique Devereaux swagger, Vivacious needs to be runway walk mentor on every future season of RPDR. MUTHA needs to ‘give hips for your nerves’ to America on a weekly basis! I wanna learn whatever she’s teaching.
7. There’s something fishy about Gia Gunn, Laganja Estranja and Darienne Lake … and it’s that they all got nicer! Apparently reality TV does a c*nty attitude good. Sometimes the only way to really see who you are is to watch yourself on television. It’s the most likable and least irritating the three of them have ever been. I can’t believe I’m saying this, but shanté you stay!
6. Trinity K. Bonet is a white chick. No, seriously, she was serving Shawn and Marlon Wayans in White Chicks realness. All she needs is Iggy Azalea on board and they’ve got the sequel in the bag.
5. Televised marriages of all kind (gay, straight, Kardashian) must stop immediately. The sentiment may be there, but just like Britney’s wigs, they cheapen everything. And by the way, condragulations to Joslyn Fox’s fiancé, Andre—you just married your lover’s alter ego!
4. Courtney and Chaz Bono’s bizarre and semi-sexual relationship has the makings of a CBS sitcom. But forget Kevin James and Leah Remini, because they give new meaning to the King of Queens.
3. Adore and Laganja’s televised confrontation was painful to watch … and not just because of their raw, pancake-free mugs! While having it take place in what looked to be the basement of a Food 4 Less in Van Nuys didn’t help, bringing them in to watch their emotional fight in front of cameras came off a bit too gratuitous. But in the end it made you adore Adore even more as she refused to play up the dramz on-screen and actually took the conversation where it needed to be—in private. Now that’s keepin’ it real!
2. Michelle Visage is not having Laganja. No way. No how. That stare will cut you. She was giving facial expression for the GAWDS! The contestants may all be playing nice now, but MV don’t have to. All tea, all shade. Okkrrrr!
1. They really need to reveal the winner LIVE. Taping all three possible outcomes leaves the newly crowned drag superstar producing a reaction more typical of being told you just won a free foot long at Subway, which actually may have been Bebe Zahara Benet’s grand prize in Season 1! Minus her crocodile tears, Bianca couldn’t have seemed less enthused. Take your rhinestone scepter and smile, gurl! Also, I normally object to its stereotypical overuse in gay club scenes in film and TV shows, but if ever there was a time for dropping confetti from the ceiling, it’s after winning a $100K on a televised drag competition! Trust!
It’s down to the final four, and the contestants are really starting to wig out as they shoot RuPaul’s latest music video. Check out the most outrageous thangs from last night’s final elimination before the finale episode.
Courtney Hack So Logo must be editing out some amazing footage of Courtney, right? I mean, can she really be so delusional that she has no clue whatsoever that she hasn’t been even remotely as fierce as she think she has? Maybe she’s convinced she’s still competing in some Australian drag competition television series, because the gurl is bananas. The simple fact is that she’s a man that can look like a gorgeous woman, but that alone doesn’t make a good drag queen. Where are the flawless performances, sassy one-liners or even this so-called amazing Idol voice of hers? All I see are exquisite legs, expensive wigs and contrived speeches. Plus, she doesn’t get that beneath all of Bianca Del Rio’s bitchy comments lies heart and truth, two things she doesn’t express in the least. Congratulations, Courtney, you have somehow managed to polish all the emotional realness from your act.
Ru are you? She always gives good tuck, but this week Ru got his panties in a wad to channel his inner Yul Brenner in The King and I as the eye patch-wearing photographer and a ‘70s Electric Company-era Morgan Freeman to play Charles in the “Sissy That Walk” acting challenge. Even after all these years the HBIC can still give you butch queen first time in man drag at the ball.
Adore-able Producers are making their case for the metamorphosis of Adore Delano from the Azusa boy in a Rite-Aid wig to the fully realized confident drag supastar that she is. After winning last week, and with not a single needle and thread required on this episode, she pretty much aced all of this week’s performance challenges. She also simultaneously produced just the right amount of tears—and heart-wrenching speeches—to win over Ru. Further working in her favor, and to the dismay of Courtney and Bianca, the show is known for loving an unpolished queen (Tyra Sanchez, Sharon Needles, Jinkx Monsoon). So unless her Twitter fans fuck it up, it appears in two weeks that her ‘trashy girl aesthetic’ may finally have a good reason to party. Besides, any twentysomething queen that can make a 1984 Phoebe Cates ‘Lace’ reference without skipping a beat is a winner in my book.
Bianca Del Ay Dios Mio! She’s been too strong for too long. And that’s why they tried to show cracks in Bianca’s pancake foundation by having Darienne Lake and Courtney blabber about her being nervous (s-t-r-e-t-c-h!) and showing her stumble a bit on the treadmill. Is that all they got? Ru said it best when he mentioned that Bianca helped out all the young gurls because they posed no threat to her. Because she’s the champion! While she displayed that she’s not completely comprised solely of bitchy retorts and one-liners by getting vulnerable, dropping her ‘wall’ and sullying up her eyeliner, BDR’s biggest flaw is that she doesn’t need the show to tell her she’s America’s Next Drag Superstar … she already is.
Too Little, Too Lake Just when you thought it was safe to dredge Darienne Lake, she goes and gets all touchy-feely and endearing with Ru. Plus you’ve got to give the beyatch props for maneuvering that treadmill like a pro, especially because you know she probably hasn’t been on one too often. DL ramped up the acting and put her back into it, getting so wrapped up in her melodramatic performance she even dared to flash one of her Jolie pork loins while writhing on the floor in hysterics. Throw in her established lip synch skills and she finally proved how talented she could be when not expending so much energy bitching about Dela, Bianca or her age. But in the end this glamazon may have been too big for her britches and had to sissy that walk on out the door.

It’s nice to see that some weaves are unisex.
