Everything’s better with Willam
Welcome back to another week of RuPaul’s Drag U, where we’ll work on your esteem issues and help you deal with your recent traumas, but when the rubber hits the road and it’s time to judge, we’ll still reward the thinnest/youngest/prettiest no matter how many obstacles you overcame. Because pretty, skinny bitches get everything. Right, Willam? (Miss you!)
This week the queens have to make over other queens: Beauty queens and their attendant aging issues. Julie peaked in high school as homecoming queen. Qween was a Soul Train dancer but has gained weight and feels guilty about pampering herself when she fosters special needs children. And Tamara is just Tabitha come back for a second go at the title. Oh, and she once was Miss Arkansas USA but now has turkey neck.
Ru’s paired them up with Chad, WILLAM! and Morgan, who all bring unique approaches to working with their students. Chad is still Mother Dust and encouraging of Julie to leave the past , stop thwarting herself by being a perfectionist and bring out her best. Morgan breaks it down that Tamara has to just get over her pretty pink princess BS and embrace being a grown-up who doesn’t wear Uggs. And Willam outsasses Qween, sharing her cutlets and teaching her how to announce her presence with authority, all while still giving the funniest interviews because Willam is a professional. Wait.
So they dance, they kibbitz, they learn how to use tape and elastic to get rid of saggy eyes and turkey neck (really) and it’s showtime. Visiting professor is Tamara Taylor, a pretty actress I’m told co-stars on Bones and this week’s Dean of Dance is Jamal Simms who has the dubious distinction of having choreographed Footloose and I’m pretty sure it wasn’t the Kevin Bacon version. Then they go through the motions of pretending the obvious winner wasn’t obvious until they crown the obvious winner the winner, no matter how fake and up her own ass she seemed.
Full recap in a few days. Until then, you can catch up on the last recap here.
