Who just watched RuPaul and Lady Gaga make HERstory on Lady Gaga and the Muppets’ Holiday Spectacular?!

This photo was taken in
the Interior Illusions Lounge Lady Gaga‘s dressing room, moments after RuPaul untucked following what’s destined to be a legendary duet. I can’t tell you which one of Gaga’s new songs they perform, but let’s just say both ladykins were looking good and feeling gorgeous fine. Lady Gaga & the Muppets’ Holiday Spectacular will make your holidays even gayer, with appearances by Sir Elton John, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Miss Piggy, Kermit, Kristin Bell, and RuPaul…literally. Watch Thanksgiving night on ABC at 9:30 PM.
Hi. This is Bradford Shellhammer. I am just some guy who stalks the World of Wonder team and somehow managed to get in the building and convinced WOW to give me the desk/computer typically used by Mathu Andersen and Michelle Visage. Though I have no clue how Michelle uses a God damned keyboard with those nails. Needless to say this desk is littered with false lashes, glitter, and weird Cheetah print art. I feel oddly at home.
I used to blog. A lot. But not so much anymore (thanks Instagram). So bare with me, I am little rusty. But it’s not my first time at the rodeo as I was the founding editor of Queerty and I also helped create Design Within Reach’s Design Notes blog. And I also started this little company called Fab.com, where James St. James buys all his dinnerware and sex toys. I am not in a wig or in lashes or in pumps like typical WOW day laborers, but I am going to try bang out a few posts before I get drunk. And at noon, I am already drinking.
This place is a shrine to RuPaul. He’s everywhere. I mean EVERYWHERE. As someone who adores Ru, I am cool with this, but I am a little nervous. It’s like I am being watched.
I was almost hoping to find previous Drag Race contestants here working. Could you imagine Victoria Pork Chop Parker answering phones, Jiggly Caliente cleaning the restrooms, and Madame La Queer fetching lunch? But, no, they’re nowhere to be found. But it’s also a maze in here so who knows if I’ll find Merle Ginsberg in a corner office. The day is young.
As far as RuPaul’s Drag Race Reunions go, this first one may be my favorite. It’s certainly the one with most yelling, tears, dragcusations, fussing and to-die-for lines. RuPaul pops off on just about ALL the queens about learning to own your own fierceness; Shannel lets the judges have it, Ongina cries, Jade & Rebecca spar then hug, Akashia has a stain, cries, laughs it off like a champ, then grabs Santino’s ass — and yes… Tammie Brown, tries to keep it clean and then utters a line that still shatters me (in the best possible way). It really is all about WALKING. CHILDREN. IN. NATURE. Shut it down. Game over. Bless us all.
So this Monday before Thanksgiving, let me express my heartfelt thanks and respect to all the Season 1 queens. They set the standard! And before you get tripped out on the days of Stove Top stuffing looming ahead, please ingest this week’s Extra Lap Recap. It features the most special guest EVER: Tammie Brown herself! And it also features many new gay ways to say HAPPY THANKSGIVING. Like TRANSGIVING! (I stole that one from RuPaul.)
And then… go peep this teensy little RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 6 teaser promo of about 10 seconds of Ru vamping up a pretty mess all over the floor. Season 6, like winter, IS COMING!!!
And if you missed the Season 1 Reunion ranting and revelry, just go watch at LogoTV.com. Then, say grace so we can eat.
Start your engines because RuPaul’s Drag Race season six is on it’s way! Check out the first teaser and get ready for a fierce filled season coming February 2014!
