Of course everybody in the office is just over the moon at RuPaul‘s long-overdue Emmy win last night. We hear the audience just WENT UP IN FOAM AND THUNDER when her name was announced. As it should be. She beat out some really heavy hitters: Jane Lynch, Steve Harvey… RYAN SEACREST! So, it was a win that really felt like WIN, BY GOD. The Emmy voters really sent a message. Media is changing. The world is changing. And Mama Ru is the catalyst. So from everybody at WOW, condragulations, gurl! Your “Queen of All Media” title is unchallenged!
Below are some pics from the Emmy after-party, taken by Thairin Smothers.
