    Sharon Needles came off surprisingly well on Hey Qween this week. Seems she's pulled herself together a bit.

    Kennedy Davenport quite critical of Ru from around the 7.45 minute mark here.



    To be fair I think Ru has become a bit of a victim of his own 'You are all my children and we're all one big happy drag family' schtick. I highly doubt a contestant would go onto America's Next Top Model and expect any kind of personal time whatsoever with Tyra Banks.

    Kennedy is so hate-able, she just came off petty throught the whole thing and she can't blame editing here. She has no charisma when not performing, she literally takes a full minutes after each picture to start forming a sentence.

    She's definitely salty. I'll bet she's far worse without the cameras.

    I think it's likely that Ru simply didn't think Kennedy was worth getting to know. I know a couple of people who have managed to strike up an actual real life friendship with Ru after starting out as nothing but random fans off Twitter, so I don't think she's a closed-off person at all. She probably just doesn't pretend to be interested in people she finds boring

    VoR, so many people have made the exact same comments about Tyra Banks re: appearing on ANTM.

    I'm totally biased, cos I love Kennedy, but I really enjoyed her Hey Queen interview. She's been through some shit, and seemingly went through some more after RPDR. I always loved her stank ass sense of humour.

    I liked her too, she came off a lot better in the main interview than the 'Look at Huh' section, where her "I speak as I find" attitude inevitably came off rather poorly.

    I really like Mrs Kasha Davis. There's not much cattiness here, but she has a great attitude and a lot of interesting perspectives about the show. Her stuff about advice she gave to Max and Fame on the set is particularly interesting.

    Yeah she was great there, and Hey Qween has been much more palatable in general this season. Probably due to Jonny piping the fuck down.

    Katya now has a WOW show - there really is no queen better for this kind of shit

    I know a lot of gays aren't fond of him, but I found Ross Matthews to be delightful on his recent episode.

    New series of Hey Qween kicks off with Bendelacreme :disco:

    She dishes a bit on her relationship with Shangela in Part II of Look At Huh



    The main show is also really worth watching too. Definitely one of the most interesting, eloquent queens ever to have appeared on the show.

    I know this post is quite old, but what was Sharon Needles doing that people didn't like? Did she just go off the rails for a bit?

    Oh i guess I should watch it. Jimmy and Lady Red are so annoying though.

    Jimmy sitting there like a little piggy boy demanding Shaaaaaade Ahahaahaaaa and hardly offering any reaction to what the guest is actually saying, before abruptly demanding LOOK AT HUHHH. I think he likes that catchphrase more than the segment

    Yeah, Jimmy is fucking ANNOYING.

    EDIT: See I couldn't even get his name right he's so superfluous.

    I like Hey Qween but I do find that the quality of the show is pretty much entirely dependent on the quality of the guest, largely due to Johnny's weak interview technique. Whenever the guests get properly shady he just sort of goes quiet, giggles nervously and says "moving on"... He clearly isn't much of an ad-libber.

    I don't get how somebody as experienced as him can still be that much of an amateur though?

    I normally only watch some clips of Look at Huh and this latest one with Nicole Paige Brooks was so uncomfortable to watch. She must have been drunk and he really didn’t do much to make up for her awkwardness.

    There is something VERY Moopy about Nicole Paige Brooks :D

    I think she's the most BUSTED looking queen to ever be on RPDR. But she looks lovely on this show.

    The interviews are nothing short of iconic :disco:

    Did we know that Marvel created an X-MAN after her???

    That video and song is one of the worst I have ever seen and heard and I now feel entirely justified in making terrible, hateful remarks about him :)

    Yeah first I thought “oh he was pretty hot when he was younger”, but realised that was the main model and not him :D
