Last Thursday was the reunion for the 2nd installment of Rupaul’s Drag Race All Stars. Pow! So everyone showed up (even Adore Delano) except Phi Phi O’Hara. It’s a little bittersweet. I didn’t keep up with the recaps but as evidenced by some of the early posts, I was rooting for her and thought she’d grown considerably since Season 4 of RPDR.
She seemed fine during all of the preshow publicity tour stuff and posted a lot about the upcoming season. Then all of a sudden it went wrong. She felt she was edited unfairly and that’s super unfortunate. I’m still rooting for her though and I still ride for her 365 days of drag.
Anywho, so overall the reunion show was good, it was like good girlfriends having a little chat. There wasn’t really any drama like the advertisements and sneak peeks made it seem, but everyone brought their A game as far as wit was concerned. One of my favorite moments was when Alaska pulled a fake leg from under her dress in homage to some real housewife of somewhere or other.
Roxxxy admitted that she felt she shouldn’t have been in the top four and that made me like her even more. She definitely changed a lot.
Alyssa was funny as uzh. I loved her line about nothing being notarized, or signed and her attorney wasn’t present when the queens decided they would eliminate each other based on the judge’s critiques. It was interesting that Adore said she shouldn’t have left but at the same time she gave really good reasons, like not being ready to be judged, not having enough clothes, etc.
