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!)
