The Drag Queens Are Back!

Well, RuPaul crowned a new drag queen on "RuPaul's Drag Race" last night. (Click and you can see the winner.)

Sadly it wasn't Raleigh's own Victoria "Porkchop" Parker; you'll remember she was the first voted off.

If you haven't been watching, I don't know why -- it's a campy, fun adventure!

Happily, there's a reunion show and it's good too. Ru's a pretty good interviewer.

Here's a clip from the reunion show (there are bleeps for language but it still isn't necessarily work-friendly -- but it's funny) with Porkchop talking about the Drag Race experience:



Did "Porkchop" Sashay or Chantez?


Last night, Raleigh's own Victoria "Porkchop" Parker made her debut on "RuPaul's Drag Race," on the Logo channel (or since Time Warner doesn't carry Logo, at www.rupaulsdragrace.com).

So how did she do?

A Local Diva Joins "RuPaul's Drag Race"


YOU. BETTER. WORK.

RuPaul, the tall, blonde, and fabulous drag queen, is back on the pop culture radar, this time hosting “RuPaul’s Drag Race,” a quest to find the next international drag queen star.

It premieres tonight at 10 on cable channel Logo, MTV's channel aimed at the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender audience. You can also watch at the same time on www.rupaulsdragrace.com

And wouldn’t you know it, one of the 9 female impersonators
competing for the title is from Raleigh. Victoria “Porkchop” Parker goes against 8 younger (she’s 39), thinner (she’s plus sized) divas for a chance at a magazine cover, an ad for l.a. eyeworks, a headlining spot on Absolut Vodka’s pride tour and $20,000. Parker is no newbie; he has been performing for 22 years around the Southeast.
