Keep feeding that gay stereotype... amazingly enough you can be attractive and have a brain! On top of that you can be gay and want something more than just a pretty body to look at. All the shallow gay guys are really gonna have it hard when they get old...

From what she said when she and Ru were on the radio together, Michelle was a "house mother" so she does know a lot about drag. She should. She herself looks like a drag queen.

Benji Schwimmer is gay. Do the sister wives know?!

Some of the most wealthy people are also some of the most alone... financial and business success is not the same as relationship success. Looks are only half of the equation... if the are hollow, shallow, and lacking in personality then they will be crappy partners by and large. Personality is just as important (and incresingly more important the older a person gets) as looks.

Wouldn't you agree that the judgement behind the statement "he looks shallow" is shallow in itself?

Do some introspection and maybe you'll realize the reason my comments hit a nerve because you hate everything about yourself "David" or "Billy" ?
You're a train wreck.

Your comment didn't hit a nerve. My comment was an observation of your obsession with people's understanding of themselves. You're sitting here talking about a drag queen's application of make-up as evidence of their self-acceptance? You've obviously lost the plot.

And to go back on the name thing, you don't have a problem with watching a drag show where people use aliases as they perform in women's clothing yet your hurl non-sensical diatribes my way, because I can't stand to see my own name butchered by Starbucks baristas. Get off your high horse. Anything this pre-occupied with other people's self-acceptance surely has issues with itself, whether it carries around an engineering doctorate.

Mine is Cash Cab Chicago. But then I realized that there's actually a show called Cash Cab Chicago. So I'm still waiting on a new one.

And lip sync for your life is not about being pretty... its about kicking ass and intensity. Otherwise Jiggly wouldnt have beat two others already.... (his dark armpits drive me nuts... put some makeup on them if your going to go sleeveless!)
It's all in the edit, though. I'm not really sure who will win, because I haven't been following as closely as last season, but last season, it was blatantly obvious that Raja had the show in the bag. Even those wins Manila bagged in the end weren't convincing anyone that she was really going to challenge Raja for the title. As deserved as those wins for Manila were, the edit of the season only cemented that Raja was going to be selected at the end. But Raja was a worthy winner (and so would Manila have been) so it didn't really matter.

But Sharon is not getting a winner's edit. It seems like the judges have some serious issues about her type of drag, and unless she goes for dramatic changes along the way, I can't imagine RuPaul selecting her as this season's winner. I really think Latrice is going to win it. She's glamour queen like RuPaul, and she has the professionalism and the personality, and she's a plus-size queen so you could always see that as an "it's time for someone not super, super fit" to win. I think Latrice is a fine choice if Sharon isn't going to.

We've yet to see a bunch of them lipsynch so I'm not really sure how to judge everyone's chances, but if Sharon ends up in the bottom because of her creepy look (really the only reason RuPaul could possibly use), and she gives them a creepy performance, she's toast. Same for Chad. She doesn't seem to have that gritty attitude in performance that sways RuPaul's vote.

Re: Rupaul Drag Race Season 4

Like Tom and Lorenzo say, Ru likes her queens pretty, thin, polished, and ethnic. Dida would fit the bill looks wise but she's terrible in every other way. Latrice is too big, Chad's looks aren't current, Sharon's drag isn't pretty enough, Willam might be too whitebread. I hope to hell it's not Phi Phi but she has been getting some sympathetic edits considering how horrible she is.

Re: Rupaul Drag Race Season 4

Chad Michaels is the only one I can warm to out of this bunch but won't win coz he's too old.
I see a Phi Phi/Willam final.

Exactly. The whole drag world seemed foreign to Merle whereas Michelle acts, looks and talks "drag". I love Michelle's Spanglish and blackaccent as well.

ETA: For those that didn't know her before RDR, here's Michelle (the blonde) with her girl group Seduction:
