RuPaul's Drag Race Recap: Clone Wars!

This week on RuPaul’s Drag Race, the ladies tested out their best celebrity impersonations — with mixed results. As judge Michelle Visage pointed out to Delta Work, if you’re going to do Cher, “bitch, you better deliver Cher!” Below, a photographic recap of the action:

Shangela is not feeling Manila's brand of Asian-stereotype humor. "They're making this a race thing!" Manila huffs. Well, grrrrl, it kind of is, isn't it?

It's time to play #@*% RuPaul Says! Delta Work gives the international signal for "Two Piece and a Biscuit."

Snatch Game will test the queens' best celebrity impersonations. Ru's muted response here pretty much sums up our response to an underbaked Tyra Banks impression by Raja, former makeup artist for America's Next Top Model.

Why can't we give Mariah the respect that she's entitled to? Maybe because her Joan Crawford impression is nothing more than eyebrows and a wooden hanger. Tiiiina, bring us the axe!

To be fair, Manila Luzon's Imelda Marcos is only marginally better. A pair of shoes does not a punch line make!

Who'd have guessed Alexis Mateo's butch, pregnant Alicia Keys -- and her unabashed flirtation with guest judge Amber Rose -- would be the episode's comic highlight?

Runner-up? Stacy Layne Matthews' Monique. "A bitch knows I'm hungry as hell!" For the RuPaul's Drag Race Title, that is.

Rah, rah, Raj-ah-ah! Oooh-ah, ooh-ah-ah! Raja, oh la la! Girl work the run-way!

Two queens enter. One queen forgets her lyrics. And, no, "Elephant shoe, honey, cantaloupe, and shalaba-laba tuna" is not going to cut it, Miss Mariah.

As part of her penance, Mariah will write the lyrics to Jody Watley's "Looking for a New Love" 100 times across the work-room mirror. Hasta la vista, baby!

    Stacy rocked it out as Monique doing Mary. Mariah’s Joan Crawford sucked. Delta’s Cher sucked. As much as I’ve come to like Shangela, her Tina was lacking. In fact most of the girls were pretty awful, except for Alexis and Stacy. Carmen Carrera needs to go. She has all the personality of a roll of duct tape, and that whole bullsh*t story about knowing J Lo and Marc Anthony asking her to come to J Lo’s birthday party in drag?? Come ON. Ugh. Hate Carmen.

    Love that Raja really thinks out of the typical drag box. Stunning. Think I’ve seen similar makeup somewhere before…oh yeah, No surpise. Extraordinarily creative and gifted bunch, Adam’s inner circle of friends.

  3. John Berggren says:

    I’ll re-affirm that I think Shangela is the one to beat. Stacey might have won the competition, but the editing clearly shows that it was Shangela who gave her the nudge in the right direction.

  4. Buffy Freak says:

    Last season’s Snatch Game was soooo much better. Cher, Tina Turner, JLo, Amy Winehouse all sucked badly and Tyra Banks was just so-so. That Delta Work is one bitter thing…face it honey, Stacy was better than you this week.

      Every time I think I like Delta, she says something super catty, and she does just come off as extremely bitter about…everything. I thought it was so sweet of her to give Shangela the call home that she won, but then later on (or maybe it was in the Untucked episode) she was so nasty about being on the bottom.

      • ali says:

        Oh yes, cuz everyone KNOWS drag queens don’t have a “catty” bone in their body and nobody cares if they get closer to $75,000 or not and nobody has private conversations in a room like Delta did, right? . And the Reading that RuPaul had as challenge last year and spoke about being historically LGBT cultural was just…well… I guess he was just “being catty”. Are you out of your mind?

    • ali says:

      Last year was just as bad except for Pandora and Tatiana.

  5. ali says:

    Maybe not lie about RuPaul’s reaction to Raja’s Tyra and remember we have televisions. How about that?

  6. Rick says:

    As I blogged before, congratulations to Shangela for winning this season. The second she popped out of the box it was quite obvious. On another note, during the latest episode Ru asked Shangela if the other “girls” were helping her. It’s odd that she knew Mimi cried about her dress in the first episode yet has no clue that Shangela gets more help(and needs it) than anyone else. I always knew Ru had no scrupples and am really not surprised she has no shame.
