Previously on Drag Race, Ru lost his damned mind and kept the vaguely talented Kandy Ho over the sassy Mrs. Kasha Davis.
After The Elimination
The ladies saunter in from the elimination, looking a bit exhausted. I suppose the challenges that go from performance right to judging must be extra-long. No one seems especially broken up about Kasha leaving. So much for old-lady pride, Ginger and Kennedy.
As she confronts Mrs. Kasha Davis’s mirror message, Kandy Ho opines that she has been hand-picked by Ru on high to be a lip sync assassin of older ladies. Violet’s face registers the thought we all universally shared, “Uh, sure, you go ahead and think that’s why you’ve hit the bottom twice.”
They chat about who won what DESPY award, and Violet admits to her new gal pal Fame that she was expecting the “Shadiest” award. She looks wistful about it. As much as she may come off as a mean girl to the other queens, they’re really wearing her down. “I just want you to know I’m going to be working on the way I come across,” she tells the group. Their responses range from dismissive (Katya) to mean (Pearl, flush from her win, in particular).
Fame expresses frustration both in the room and in the interview that Pearl pulled through in the DESPYs despite continuing negativity, in the latter saying, “I can’t shower positive energy on that shit – I don’t even want it near me.” For all of Fame’s failures so far – and they’ve been many – you can’t deny that she’s consistently flung herself into the competition. From bad jokes to bad dancing to bad tape on her brow, you can’t accuse her of not giving it her all. [Read more…] about RuPaul’s Drag Race, S7E06 Recap: Ru Hollywood Stories
