RuPaul’s Drag Race S6, Ep12 Recap

Trash is back, y’all!  Sorry about the lack of detailed recap last week. Let’s get into it.

The top 3 and freaking Darienne Lake return after Dela was so rudely sent home.

Bianca applauds Adore’s victory while Courtney serves up shade.  She didn’t see it for Adore’s looks or Bianca’s silhouette sameness.  I can’t disagree with her here, but she wasn’t any better.

Bianca: “Not today, Satan! Not today!” 

We’re back in the workroom with the top 4 and Ru tells them to Sissy That Walk!  Michelle Visage enters and calls herself Ben DelaCreme.  Too soon.  Too soon.  We’re making a music video and there’s “sissy-ography” and acting.  Let’s hurry up and get to the taping.

Choreographer Jamaal Sims walks in to help them learn to bodyroll and Darienne gives us a fantastic Wendy Williams impression.  Well done!

Courtney kills it.  Adore is okay.  Bianca is not in touch with her body rolls.  Come on, bitch!  Darienne’s dance moves have not improved from Shade the Rusical or the Oh No, She Better Don’t video.

During Ru’s chats, she encourages Courtney to be more human and “realistic”.  Ru talks to Darienne about getting kicked out of her house and learning to love herself.  Ru praises Bianca for being prepared for the show.  It’s obvious that Ru adores Bianca.  Finally, Adore and Ru discuss her mother.  Ru also mentions the lack of relationship with his father.  Adore discusses the insecurities that arise from that and Ru serves all of the encouragement.  This is a lovely segment but I don’t watch the show for loveliness.

Back in the workroom, Courtney doesn’t seem to get that she needs to appear rattled.  I mentioned this is my how to win at reality shows post.  Bianca and Courtney contemplate final runway attire while Adore defends her lack of style.

Sissy-ography time!  Adore and Darienne flop in the group filming.  Courtney and Adore are way better on the treadmill.  Cut to Adore: “BITCH JUST STOLE MY MFING MOVE!!!!!” It didn’t merit that much of reaction.

Acting with Mathu! Everyone does fine.  It’s not as funny as they thought this would be.  It’s all a little meh… Adore looks disturbingly like Jessica Wild in the dramatic scene.

“I…love… this drink!” 

Runway prep! Courtney reveals that she didn’t like Adore at the beginning.  Darienne “knew of” Courtney but now she things that she is sweet.  Bianca didn’t see it for Adore when she was associated with Laganja.  But she revealed herself to be sharper than realized and now they get along.  Courtney calls Bianca out for joking around.  It’s all very sweet and blah…

blahblah

We’re finally on to the runway!  Maybe something interesting will happen.  I do love when Michelle wears her hair down.

Adore looks okay.  And cheap.  And she’s not cinched and after weeks of wearing  Bianca’s corset, it shows.  While she looks better than she did in the earlier episodes, it shows that her style is limited.  Bianca Del Rio still looks gorgeous.  The gown fits well and has lovely accents.  But the timing after the sapphire challenge takes some of the effect away.  I think she should have gone with the hooded look we saw in the workroom.  Courtney looks stunning.  Being absolutely gorgeous always helps.  I can’t help but think this is surprisingly standard.  Darienne looks great.  I’m come to the conclusion that she’s never going to get the length right but she looks beautiful from wig to shin.

I feel like I wanted to see a bit more from these queens.  Although thinking back on the past finales, only Bebe Zahara Benet and Roxxxy Andrews’ (vomit) looks struck me as their best drag.

Adore: Santino praises her dress and makeup.  Michelle likes her acting and dancing.

Bianca: Michelle loves her being a little sexy and rocked every aspect of the video.  She loves the color of the runway gown.

Courtney: Michelle loves the choreography and her runway looks.  Santino didn’t like the props in the emotional scene.

Darienne: Santino loves the lip sync and Michelle loves her look tonight.  The acting is praised outside of a “flatline” in the emotional scene.

Notice that their names are the first 4 letters of the alphabet??  #Conspiracy

We hear about why each girl thinks they should win.  Adore is genuine and bratty.  Bianca peels back a few layers of the onion and makes everyone smile and laugh.  Courtney talks polish and her journey from Australia.  Darienne remembers how Alaska read her competition last season and how well it went over.  She does a good job selling herself and getting in some good-natured reads.

The judges deliberate and they like everyone.  There are minor critiques for each girl but it’s clear that we are not supposed to know who is going home.

A four-way lip sync to Sissy That Walk.  Seems like too many people on the stage, but let’s see.  Lip Sync Death Match! You really can’t see much but they all seem to bring it.

Darienne Lake is sent home without much fanfare.

So our final three are Adore Delano, Bianca Del Rio, and Courtney Act!  This episode was super meh but it’s a strong, quality top group.  But we all know that this is Bianca Del Rio’s to win.

Share your thoughts in the comments and I can’t wait until the finale/reunion!

Quickie Post: Love Songs

I hope that you all are having a great Wednesday.  This is super fast but I was listening to this song and thought that you all would enjoy it.

I’m not the world’s biggest Anthony Hamilton fan, but this?!

uglycry

 

Just listen and let Anthony take you on a journey.

Lyrics
I had a habit of messing up

Staying out late and getting drunk
I let you down a thousand times
Broken promises
It’s like I ran away from you
My career was my excuse
Until I saw you about to drown in your own tears

And as you cried in my arms
You woke up my heart
And I saw again what I found in you
Cuz her heart, her heart wont let me lose her
No matter how I try
I just cant say goodbye and lose her

When all the folks were said and done
You were there to welcome me home
I was convicted cuz your love never wavered
I know you love me more than me
And you vowed to love through anything
I never had a kind of love that was forever

And as you cried in my arms
You woke up my heart
And I saw again what I found in you
Cuz her love, her love wont let me lose her
No matter how I try
I just cant say goodbye and lose her

Cuz her heart, her heart wont let me lose her
No matter how hard I try
I just cant say goodbye and lose her
No matter how hard I try
I just cant say goodbye and lose her
No matter how I try
I just cant say goodbye and lose her

Bracket Madness!

Greetings from the ATL!

I’ve made it down to the South after a crazy and hilarious road trip.  But that’s enough about that.  Let’s talk brackets!

It’s March so we’re gearing up for my two favorite things about the spring.  March Madness & Fug Madness!

March Madness

Now being from North Carolina, college basketball is something of a way of life.  Very few people grow up in the state without strong feelings for one of the Big 4. (Obviously Duke is the best).  So the NCAA tournament is great fun for all.

And I’m sure that you’ve heard about the Billion Dollar Bracket.  Now the Negative Nellies and the Bitter Betties are pointing at the odds and pointing out that you have to share.  Meanwhile, I’m planning out how to spend my billion dollars.

While I’m a Duke fan, Wisconsin is my pick for the win.  A billion dollars is on the line.  Hometown pride be damned!

Kidding.  Here’s the actual link.

Fug Madness

Yes! So The Fug Girls are amazing bloggers/authors who talk celebrities who can’t dress themselves, terrible movies, magazine covers,and runway shows.  Their wit and sense of humor is always fun and I’ve been reading them since the days of the Peldons, Bai Ling, and Phoebe Price.  Follow them on Twitter here.  Also check out their books Spoiled and Messy which are both great reads.

But the best part of the year is their March Madness style tournament that decides the worst dressed celebrity of each year.  You’d be shocked how fun it is to vote and root for your “favorites”.  You vote based on the terrible ensembles and the comments section leads to a lot of back and forth.  Does Nicki Minaj dressing like a Fruit Loop count for more than Gwyneth Paltrow looking smug on the red carpet?  It’s your job to decide.  Fill out your bracket and prepare to lose to me! Miley is the heavy favorite to take it this year.

Are you all looking forward to the tournaments?  Have any fun ideas of your own?  Let us know in the comments section and I look forward to spending my money.
