Natural Drag Woman (RuPaul’s Drag Race)
Season 4 of Drag Race was some of the best reality TV we’ve ever seen, mostly because of cycle winner Sharon Needles and the truly excellent song choices in the LSFYLs. We saw Jiggy Caliente “Swiffer the floor with her taint” and DiDa Ritz rock “This Will Be (An Everlasting Love)” in front of Natalie Cole herself and, best of all, saw Latrice Royale lip synch Aretha Franklin’s “(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman” to the baby bump she wore in the prior challenge in the most genius performance since Manila annihilated “MacArthur Park” in Season 3.
Can Devil Eunice guest judge on RuPaul’s Drag Race or something? I’d hate to lose her when the season’s over.

Pandora Boxx (RuPaul’s Drag Race)
We were super excited for the All-Stars and Pandora was one our favorite classy ladyboys. But she came back in a super bitchy mood. What the hell? She was so disgruntled about being paired up with Mimi Imfurst that she barely made an effort in the competition. And she could have tried to save Mimi’s lip-synch and didn’t bother. That is not all-star behavior.

Who will you be voting for?
Admittedly, it was a long shot, but RuPaul’s Drag Race is one of the funniest and most entertaining reality-competition shows on TV, and we’d even go so far as to say it’s heartwarming at times. Mostly we were hoping that Ru would earn a nod for hosting and then appear in some fantastic gown.
Low Production Quality
Look, we get that Logo doesn’t have the highest budget in cable, but besides the fantastic fashion in the audience and on a few of the queens, the reunion felt completely phoned-in. Segments were rushed (especially The Library), Ru’s “I’m not here!” fake-out was stupid and there was no glamour whatsoever. You would think the network would be wise enough to cash in on the series and give us a two-hour reunion, or something. Bravo’s Housewives reunions are broken into three-hour chunks sometimes, and those ladies are significantly less entertaining.
