Hello Hello hello! Welcome again to our weekly roundup of all things Drag race†
This week, our season seven All Stars offered advice to the graduates of Sleep U (RIP…never forget) and brought fierce veil-themed fashion to the catwalk. In case you missed last week’s insane Fairytale Justice challenge and pointy runway looks, our favorite Ru cappers are here to fill you in on the week’s hits and misses (although I don’t think there were any.)
In addition, we take a look at the new reality series starring Trixie Mattel, take a walk through fashion memories with Latrice Royale and watch Season 14 champion Willow Pill in a fantastic new video. We’ve got a lot to get started on, so let’s take it to the runway!
This week on RuPaul’s Drag Race All Starsthe battle lines are drawn between last week’s winner The Vivienne and clear frontrunner jinkx monsoon† Mama Ru challenges our Queen Testants to deliver an inspiring opening speech, because knowledge is power and it’s important to pass it on. comedian Nikki Glaser stands ready to coach the queens and inspire the results…lots of laughter, with raja‘s spiritual words of wisdom and a witchy Jinkx’s collision with a car in Amsterdam (literally) cackling from Ru.
This week’s runway theme is “Veiled It!” and every look we saw was worthy of an All Star, especially hood‘s beautiful feathered dress and birdcage headpiece, Raja’s magazine cover eleganza, sheaGram’s accordion pleated tribute to her gardening and Jinkx’s butterfly embellished lavender dress. Our top two this week were Jinkx and Raja and the pair gave us a colorful lip sync with Lizzo‘Better in color’. Winning again, Jinkx chooses to block her rival The Vivienne and, in another twist, the top two get to gift a Legendary Legend Star to one of their fellow queens next week. Watch the birth of the rivalry between Viv and Jinkx in the first act of the episode here, and subscribe to Paramount+ to see all the drama.
Last week’s All Stars found the queens facing Judge Michelle Face in “Fairytale Justice” and with some spectacular pointy looks on the catwalk. Bob the Drag Queen is here with the highlights – and welcomes her sister from season eight Naysha Lopez in the final episode of “The Pit Stop”
Last week’s runway was really something to talk about and Yuhua Hamasaki a Shuga Cain give us their “Bootleg Opinions” of the “Spikes on the Runway” looks.
Naysha Lopez and Batty Davis welcome Queen of the Universe winner Grag Queen and Adore Delano (who knows her way around reality singing competitions) to their weekly Drag Race viewing party at Roscoe’s Bar & Grill in Chicago.
The verdict is that last week’s “Fairytale Justice” challenge was one for the books, with solid performances from all the queens. Joseph Shepherd and Lies Estranja weigh in on their podcast’s latest episode, “Queening Out”.
Our All Stars queens are in the hot seat as glamour magazine, they undergo a ‘Friendship Test’. They share their first impressions of each other, drop some trust, play a few (sort of difficult) rounds of Drag race trivia and answer lightning-quick questions about each other.
Last week, the fantastic Sharonne was crowned queen of season 2 of Drag Race Espana and all the queens returned to the catwalk to show off their best drag looks. Alexis Mateo and Choriza May toot and boot the ensembles at the last “Fashion Photo Ruview” of the season. For example, I can’t wait for season three.
She’s a make-up fanatic, talented singer, author and amazing artist – and now Trixie Mattel has added hotelier to her resume. Her new show Trixie Motel debuted this week on Discovery+ and you have to check out this sneak peek, which features: RHOBH alum Lisa Vanderpump†

Trixie and katja watch and comment on season one of the Netflix series Young Royals on ‘I like to watch’.
Batter up! Who better to talk about sports than our two favorite non-athletic drag queens? On this week’s “UNHhhh,” the couple talks about all things sport, including gym showers, how they would behave as Olympic champions, their dream athletic physique, and much more. It’s another gold medal-winning episode.
Good God, hold on girl! the fantastic one Latrice Royale is the latest queen to come “Out of the Closet” and invite us to her Florida home. She discusses her pageant background and shows off her beautiful and iconic looks (including the meme-famous Large Marge from season four’s Tuckahoe Prison Challenge). She also talks about drag on a dime, her love of all things fashion and praises the many design talents of Lashawn Beyond. I need to find those gold platform shoes in my size.
Let’s take a moment to catch up with the season 13 champion Symone† In this interview she discusses putting together a look, getting a DM from Rihanna and walking the runway in the Savage x Fenty show, and her upcoming role in the Billy Eichner movie brothers†

It’s time to think about pink! Jaymes Mansfield is always a queen pigment before and in this video she tries out the new hair color kit from Trixie Mattel X Good Dye Young (Hayley Williams of Paramore’s company).
