RuPaul’s Drag Race Recap: What to Expect When You’re Expecting

During critiques, Phi Phi gets emotional when talking about working with her daddy mommy. They play the sad piano music, and there are tears and hugging, and I should be feeling emotions, too, and ohmygod why are you still talking?!

As much as I’d like to think my angry keystrokes have an impact, they didn’t stop Phi Phi from winning the challenge. Homegirl gets a trip Vegas. Woooo. Chad earns high marks (finishing second), and Sharon narrowly escapes the bottom two.

Sigh. Latrice Royale, you and Kenya Michaels are in the bottom once again. The song is “(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman” by Aretha Franklin.

Is there a word for watching something that’s simultaneously beautiful and excruciating? Well, we need one for this lip-synch. Latrice sings to her baby bump, and it represents all that is perfect in the world.

Then there’s Kenya Michaels.

But I’m blaming Santino Rice and Michelle for this. You brought her back! You deemed her worthy of returning—and possibly winning—this show! And now, we have a queen doing the splits while wearing a maternity suit. When she tosses her wig, I can feel the pain on Jennifer Love Hewitt’s face. And it is such intense, pitying pain.

There’s no question about this one. Heck, there’s not even any interview commentary to lighten the mood. Kenya Michaels, sashay away. Again. Faster please. Thank you.

Queerty, what did y’all think of this week? Is Latrice in danger of not making it to the final three? How awkward was the fight between Chad and Sharon’s DILF?

Next week: it’s a canine couture. Sure. Great. Thanks. Just no more maternity ballet.


Jason Sweeten is worried about Latrice (twice in the bottom two!) and wants to know that it will all be okay.
