NeNe Leakes Does Her Best RuPaul on Lip Sync Battle — Watch Video

NeNe Leakes‘ performance on Thursday’s Lip Sync Battle (Spike TV, 10/9c) is the very definition of art imitating life… imitating art? (Oh dear, I believe we’ve stumbled into a vortex.)

In a preview clip of Leakes’ showdown against noted heterosexual Todd Chrisley, the Real Housewives of Atlanta star goes full drag for a dramatic rendition of RuPaul’s 1992 club jam “Supermodel.” For contextual purposes, it should be noted that RuPaul once described Leakes as the most drag-like Housewife on an episode of Watch What Happens Live, and he famously referred to Spike’s competition show as a “poor ripoff” of the life-or-death lip sync battles on RuPaul’s Drag Race.

Hopefully Leaks’ performance will serve as a bridge between RuPaul and Spike TV — whose feud, if you think about it, is pretty on-brand for both parties — allowing for the One True Queen of Lip Syncing to compete on Chrissy Teigen’s hallowed stage someday. (My personal vote for RuPaul’s opponent would be Paul Reubens. Can you imagine? #RuPaulReubens!)

    I looks like Ru is going to walk on stage right at the end of the clip. After the two girls walk up behind Nene there’s another person walking up behind them between the two giant posters.

    Ugh wish NeNe would take a hike. She has no talent for anything and a big “holier than thou” attitude. What audiences give in the way of money and fame they can also take away.
    She looks like a man in drag. Do. To miss seeing her and wish she would just disappear.

    I tried watching this show but couldn’t get passed it after like two episodes for one reason…..The waste of space that is Chrissy Tiegen. What on earth is the point of that woman? She’s so useless and adds nothing to the show and yet she was constantly on screen. Ugh another Kardashian-like trash celebrity with no talent taking up screen time. I’ll stick to checking out the battles I want to see on YouTube and fast forwarding her annoying parts.
