Queens Get "Oprah-esque" On RuPaul's Drag Race


The challenge on last night’s Drag Race was to “channel Oprah.” At first, some of the contestants thought that this meant doing blackface. But no! It was something worse: Reading a teleprompter.

The ladies tripped up on the words “Mahmoud Ahmadinejad,” “nuclear proliferation” and “appalled.” But the best was when Nina Flowers read “this is [your name]” instead of inserting her name into the sentence. As an aside, one of the weirdest thing about watching last night’s episode were the repeated commercials for Madea Goes To Jail. Because, obviously a captive audience who likes men in dresses will love Tyler Perry! Moving on: Shannel and Akashia were in the bottom two this week, which was the third time Akashia was in the bottom two. It was time for her to sashay away. Remember last week, when Akashia made Michelle Williams cry? Well here’s a clip of some footage that didn’t make the show: Akashia and Michelle Williams going at it.
