RPDR All Stars 4

With all the deplorable crap going on in the world, one thing we can be thankful for is being gifted two All-Stars seasons in one calendar year!  As it’s only been 11 months since the premiere of All-Stars 3 in January, many of us are finally recovering from the subsequent controversial crowning of Shangela Trixie Mattel months later. HalleNOOOOO!

With that travesty behind us, here are three things I loved about the premiere of RuPaul’s Drag Race All-Stars 4.

  1. Brown Cow stunning! Monique Heart proved that with a fierce wig and a house beat anything can be fabulous. HalleMOO!
  2. Winter is coming, but for Farrah Moan it’s all about THE FALL. Ouch! It was the death drop heard around the world & that I rewound five times to watch.  Guess her face isn’t the only thing beat for the gawds.
  3.  Give me some Latrice Royale all day, every day! #GGGGG

Without further ado, here are the All-Stars 4 celebrity twinsies.

Monique Heart may or may not be morally corrupt, but Faye Resnick has definitely got snatch game!

Naomi Smalls is a replicant & her legs cut like a Blade …Runner.

Lawd have mercy, Trinity Taylor is full of Grace. Every girl knows a good tuck is a kween’s best friend!

Latrice Royale is a big Star, so take a little time to enjoy this view.

Valentina is pretty Sly … Stallone’s wife.

You’re perfect. You’re beautiful. You look like Jennifer Flavin. You’re a model!

Is Farrah Moan a NYC nightlife sensation? No, but she is trying to keep it real, Amanda Lepore real.

Gia Gunn came back looking like a total Fox.

The rumors are true, Monet X Change loves Tina!

Sorry haters, but Jasmine Masters is an iconic comedian. Roo roo roo!

Now sashay away until next week!

Who’s that girl?!

With matching blonde weaves and heavy eyeliner, Bebe Rexha & Gwen Stefani Rita Ora through viewers for a loop by both allegedly performing at the the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show on Sunday.

Sources say rumors that the two numbers were actually performed by just one of the singers who changed lace front wigs in-between sets are undeniably false.

Fun fact: Both Bebe and Rita are of Albanian descent.

Find out who is who by watching the performances for yourselves!

 

If you’re watching Pose on FX, then you know it’s time for the House of Celebrity Dopplegangers Ball.

Anna Kendrick, Lindsey Vonn, Sofia Carson

While the world burns to the ground because of our garbage President, what I’m really afraid of is that Anna Kendrick will retaliate against me.

Be best, A!

Sarah Huckabee Sanders

We are definitely in an era of peak reality TV.

May the Lord open and make it all go away!

After finishing the second season of Stranger Things, I couldn’t help but find each of the main characters’ Upside Down bizarro twins.

With the exception of Will, they all have a doppleganger that referenced a star or character from the ’70s, ’80s or ’90s.

Anyway, enjoy the fruits of my lazy Sunday and trust there are no spoilers if you haven’t finished yet.

 

1. Will Byers – Anne Hathaway

Sure Will’s got that Joey Lawrence Gimme a Break Dorothy Hamill ‘do, but the only thing scarier than surviving the Demogorgon is that Anne won an Oscar for singing! I Dreamed a scary Dream!

2. Mike Wheeler – Isabella Rossellini

There are worse things for a 13-year-old boy to be compared to than the eternal beauty of Lisle Von Rohlman from Death Becomes Her.

 

3. Lucas Sinclair – Arnold Drummond (Gary Coleman) in Diff’rent Strokes

Whatcha talkin ’bout who ya gonna call, Lucas?

 

4. Dustin Henderson – J.T. Lambert (Brandon Call) from Step by Step

The scene was straight up Duckie in Pretty in Pink, but Dustin’s weave was the quintessential ‘short but long’ cut of my guido high school and this ’90s child star.

 

5. Eleven – Jamie Lee Curtis (Terror Train/Prom Night era)

Eleven is truly the scream queen for a new generation.

 

6. Steve Harrington – Sandra Bernhard

Ladies love them and their luxurious Fabergé sprayed hair.

 

7. Billy Hargrove – Rob Lowe as Billy Hicks in St. Elmo’s Fire

Speaking of hair, don’t forget they say the accessories make an outfit

 

8. Nancy Wheeler – Diane Franklin (The Last American Virgin, Better Off Dead, Bill & Ted’s)

It’s all about being an ’80s It girl. So be careful, Nancy! #WhereAreTheyNow

 

9. Jonathan Byers – Michael Jackson

The wispy hair, the delicate features, the pale complexion. Maybe I’m the only one that sees it, but Jonathan makes me want to SCREAM!

 

10. Max Mayfield – Carrie (Sissy Spacek)

A redheaded girl without many friends. Hold the pigs blood, because Max has got the power!

 

11. Lucas’ sister Erica Sinclair – Dee (Danielle Spencer) on What’s Happening!!

Can you say scene-stealing wisecracking younger sister? Then how about, “No Roger, No Rerun, No Rent!”

 

12. Joyce Byers – Winona Ryder in Lost Souls

No one does frazzled anxiety quite like Nona. She also hasn’t aged in 20 years. You can’t steal that from Saks!

And finally my favorite ’80s film reference in season 2 goes to Hopper‘s Silkwood shower.

 

Alien, ET, Firestarter, Pretty in Pink… (insert ’80s film here) be damned, nothing tops the hard brush scrubdown of the Meryl Streep film classic. Check out a more thorough list of ’80s references here.

Episode 1 Recap

Sorry kids, Valentina is gone. Now get over it!

Three things I loved: 1. The club kid herstory & runway. Long live ’90s NYC nightlife! 2. Michelle Visage‘s cape lewk while judging the pilot challenge. 10s across the board, henny!     3. Sasha reading Trinity for finally making a joke. Keep shade alive, children!

Three things I hated: 1. Nina Bo’Nina‘s paranoia. Conspiracy theory killed the drag superstar! 2. Valentina’s laziness. A kween can’t live by face alone! 3. The fan outrage over the Ariana Grande lip sync song choice. Classic or new, hit or obscure, they all get the song ahead of time & can memorize. End. Of. Story. Sashay away!

And here are this week’s Snatch Game wannabe celeb dopplegangers.

1. Valentina is a Twisted Sister.

She’s not gonna take it anymore … because she’s gone!

 

2. Nina Bo’Nina has a Tiny chance of winning.

But it looks like her hopes have really dyed.

 

3. Sasha Velour is serving Earth’s first supermodel Janice Dickinson realness.

An eye for an eye!

 

4. Valentina is a Real Housewife of Orange County.

Goodbye Our Lady of Guadalupe, hello ‘Jesus Jugs’ Alexis Bellino.

 

5. Nina Bo’Nina Brown is a Real Housewife of New Jersey.

Second only to the Snatch Game, the annual reading challenge is usually the funniest segment of each season. Usually.

But with no one matching the wit and timimg of Bob the Drag Queen, Alaska or Bianca Del Rio, the season 9 kweens were less comedy and more tragedy.

While Valentina was awarded the reading challenge and Peppermint took the roast of Michelle Visage, in my book, Sasha Velour had the best overall lines.  “Valentina is a queen that combines all the excitement of smiling with the thrill of just standing there.” TRUTH!

 

Three things I loved this week: 1. Nina Bo’Nina‘s elderly drag. “And what’s your name baby?” (to guest judge Fortune Feimster). DEAD! 2. Tamar Braxton looking gorge and serving shade.com. Shantay you stay, gur!  3. Michelle telling the kweens they should have gone balls to the walls in roasting her, because it’s a, um, ROAST! She’s “so Jersey” and you bettah not fugheddabout it!

Three things I hated this week: 1. Farrah Moan‘s alabaster face beat. Apparently, she can only throw shade …on her cheeks!  2. Alexis Michelle getting pissy about weight jokes, yet mock’s Shea’s teeth. Isn’t that the pot calling the kettle FAT?!  3. Just as I’m starting to like Trinity Taylor she crashes and burns with her unfunny hillbilly routine. Shame on me, y’all!

So after two weeks off, here is this week’s Snatch Game wannabe celeb dopplegangers.

1. Shea Culee did it on ’em! #NickiMinaj

Pound the alarm, Shea is about to snatch the whole damn thing!

 

2. Alexis Michelle has been acting like a Gremlin lately!

Do not body shame …or feed her after midnight!!!

 

3. Peppermint is every woman! #ChakaKhan

I feel for you, Peppermint! I think I love you.

 

4. Valentina is a SHORE thing! #Snooki

She knows there’s a fine line between chola and guidette. Gym. Tan. Lip sync.

 

5. Nina Bo’ Nina Brown is part of your Mama’s Family!

Some say her shtick is getting old, but I think it’s still funny.

 

6. Trinity Taylor has gone MAD … magazine!

What, she worry? #AlfredENeuman

 

7. Sasha Velour is so Cruel-lla.

She was very, very Close this week.

 

8. Farrah Moan —  Lord have mercy for serving late televangelist Jan Crouch realness.

Sashay away – & rest in peace – knowing your face was beat for the gawds.

 

For more pop culture recaps, reads & shade, makes sure you download the season 3 premiere of SCREAMING INTO TRAFFIC! We’re talking Drag Race, Fire Island, White Party & reminiscing about West Hollywood’s glory days with the one & only Billy Francesca!
