Ive really gotta start my day but I wanna write Rupauls Drag Race season 5 episode 2

Ok Coco and Roxxxy's stock just went way up. I wasn't feeling Coco at first but i liked her outfit last episode but it was her read that made me like her. Roxxy (Roxy?) (Roxxxy??) gets MAJOR points for having the balls to says "EXCEPT FOR SERENA." That was real. The season is gonna be great BUT I will say none of them are sorta killing me with their styling YET and I do wish there was a bit of an age difference just for variety. Is it elitist to say Im glad there aren't 17 Puerto Rican queens this episode? and by 17 I mean 2... because TWO FEELS LIKE 17?! Its just A LOT OF ALOTTA! I just always think the Rican queens library of references is shitty and they're a waste of my time. (ouch...mean?! I think I'm only extra harsh because I went to Puerto Rico recently and expect fierce draggery because of the show but there was none to be found and was let down)) Now THAT said, the Puerto Rican queen this season is the best Rican yet as far as looks go and maybe the best looking one of all contestants this season! Michelle was so right about that one queens MOUTH. I SO AGREE, I can't stop starring. Is it beautiful?, is it "off"?... I think its RIGHT?!
Michelle please start dressing more kookoo again because I love how it "legitimizes" Ru and makes her appear more RATIONAL and therefore cements her placement as THE QUEEN. She's not over the top, she's CORRECT. The henchwoman always should have more extreme styling, they have license to. If the ruler is too extreme it delegitimizes them, yet the ruler still has to be SUPREME so its a fine line and therefore thats why Michelle should go more over the top/kookoo/ exaggerated. It makes Ru look more toned down and sensible even though she herself is totally over the top but now you don't notice it because the henchman being extreme gives her license to be extreme. I learned this when I went to CalArts and there was this kid I couldn't stand that I called "Backyard Barbie" he was always semi nude and his hair was a giant dirty blond dred, just like a barbie you find in your neighbors back yard. Well I couldn't stand his sloppy hippie passive aggressive attention getting ways. I mean he carried around A PET LOG. As someone who loves to get attention it annoyed me that he did it in such a SLOPPY way and acted as though he did NOT want it. So I, coming from THE AMAZON FETISH ROBOT SCHOOL OF ATTENTION GETTING, sorta loathed him. You know what my schtick was, it hasn't changed, BUT I'll tell you something Backyard Barbie only lasted a year so second year when there was no Backyard Barbie I BECAME THE FREAK, and then I thought... OH I GET IT?! I NEEDED BACKYARD BARBIE to push the limits, sloppy, or not, with him here it gave ME license to be a total GAY NAZI PEACOCK and I never even knew it, he DEFLECTED my kookery and I just looked FIERCE not CRAZY. So of course Im not equating the GODDESS Michelle Visage with BackYard Barbie but what I am saying is the more extreme she is the more license Ru has to be over the top but still remain "legitimate" Now all that said who the fuck cares about being legitimate, but that can be Michelles job, to NOT be legitimate but be the AWESOME we all want to be but can't be because we care too much what other people think, and we will all respect her for that, perhaps even more... Just a thought....

Thanks for this. I watch this show for the express purpose of reading your posts about it. I'm still waiting for you to mention the fact that COCO looks exactly like a black version of MADAME, but only when she's NOT IN DRAG?!

I love that Coco isn't afraid to do "old lady" drag. Leneysha is my favorite, I think. I agree that she is by far the bet Latina they've had. The others were too old-fashioned or something?

And what is Madam's book?? I can't find it on amazon. Is it a memoir?

Yes it her memories, her as a child, her in college.. everything!
