RuPAULS DRAG RACE SEASON 4 : Half Time Recap...

The game has changed... for the better. I wrote a piece this season after viewing episode one and its very interesting how its all changed. After seeing episode one all of us were like "THERE ISNT A PRETTY ONE?!" and it sorta threw everyone because we were still playing by last seasons agenda which was way more about looks, styling and the runway. This season is very different its about PERSONALITY AND TALENT. Now before we realized this it just seemed like a bit of a dog show but NOW I feel like this season might be better because the queens have more personality and pizazz. No we don't have a fiercely styled queen or a great walker or even a pretty one but Id gladly exchange a fishy queen for a creative one.
Sharon Needles is basically awesome. She's my kinda queen, creative, funny, weird and well done make up. The snake arm in the last episode cracked me up, she's me at 19 pre-mones. My secret favorite is the working professional Chad Michaels. She doesn't have the fiercest looks nor is she the most creative BUT she is a PRO. I like that. Raja told me she has a separate make-up kit for each character. Like she has them all stacked up and labeled, the Mad Hatter, Cher, The Grinch.... who knows who else she does but I love those fiercely organized pros. The organization is a testament to their conviction which is very admirable. She also seems real and nice and c'mon she's fuckin CHER. The THE WIG SWAP REVIEW stunt she pulled during the snatch game was MAJOR. I totally heart Chad Michaels. I actually thought her wet t-shirt look was really good too. Latrice Royale (with cheese) is the American dream, the good girl who made some bad decisions and walked through that MUCK and came out sparkling. You can't not like that story. SHE NEEDS TO NARRATE CHILDRENS BOOKS! Though for ONE SECOND can I get REAL? I think Latrice is GREAT but the judges are being VERY generous in their critiques of her using words like CHIC, ELEGANT and REFINED for her. Words come to mind when I see Latrice but its not exactly THOSE words. The words that come to my mind are RHINOCEROS, BULLDOZER, TREE STUMP, UGANDA and KFC.
Poor Milan, she just wanted it too much and tried too hard.
Phi Phi is just gross, the "mall girl" of queens. She's the one you deliberately get up and walk away to get yourself a drink during her performance because she has ZERO style and is just trying to do someone else's dream. GOOPEY is the word that comes to mind. that was a little mean cause she's young but she's a bit of a twat so...
Jiggly is a grub.
MICHELLE VISAGE...................... I LOVE MICHELLE VISAGE! Michelle Visage is what gays who love Madonna THINK Madonna would be like if they knew her but I promise you Madonna is NOT like Michelle Visage. Madonna is a self loathing twat trying to be anything but a girl from Michigan. Michelle Visage is Michelle Visage even though she spent a good decade trying to be Madonna?!.. Funny how the WORM TURNS. Michelle is the kinda lady gay guys love cause she thinks like a man and dresses for men. She doesn't dress for WOMEN which is what most women do. I dislike that about most women and I think its why a lot of women are unhappy, they're more concerned with what other women think then the men they're trying to attract. This can sound sorta misogynistic but its not if you do it the right way. If you do it right it actually developes a strong sense of self and equality amongst the sexes... but thats an entirely different essay.
Ru as always is the PRO. I seriously think Ru needs MORE WORK. She does a FANTASTIC job as the host of the Snatch Game and I feel like she should be hosting a game show. A friend of mine who is very smart and talented and completely from a different genre of business came up to me out of the blue to tell me what a pro he thought Rupaul was and how meticulous she is with delivery. I couldn't agree more. I actually get EXCITED to see the way she's gonna deliver "Bring me back... my girls" I think usually its FAYE DUNAWAY she's channeling but Id love to see a "set list" of who she's channeling in each delivery. Ru if you're reading this may I suggest ... Charles Nelson riley, Sarah Douglas and Kelly Lebrock ? ... OOH and Sigourney Weaver OH and Glenn Close from Fatal attraction! Come to think of it Ru can you do a TOTAL LOOK thats Glenn Close from Fatal Attraction?! Id LOVE IT. Id also love it if you could do Darryl Hannahs turquoise oversize sweater dress from Splash...
Ok now Im not even making commentary and just making requests, time to stop.... Thaaaaaaanks......Byeeeee

As always spot on! Although I would probably do PhiPhi if I found him in a dark alley.

Sharon is a drag dream come true, love the Chad, also like the humor of Willam but wears a bit thin. HATE Phi Phi, they're obviously keeping her for the "reality" drama. Snore.
Not quite the beauty season eh?
