Condragulations to RuPaul’s girls as it was a big week in the wonderful world of RuPaul’s Drag Race! As for Ru’s American girls, Shangela, Bob The Drag Queen, and Eureka have an exciting new project while the UK’s ‘The Frock Destroyers‘ are killing it on the music charts.
Let’s start off by paying respect where it is due- to Queen Mother RuPaul. RuPaul’s Drage Race UK was renewed for a second season. Ru’s British girls don’t need to sashay away, as World of Wonder and BBC Three want more!
According to gaytimes.co.uk, RuPaul said in a statement, “I want to thank the BBC and all our fans for their overwhelming support of RuPaul’s Drag Race UK.” The game-changing drag icon continued, “Here’s to another season of love, laughter and light!” Ru couldn’t help but throw in his favorite acronym in his statement, “This season’s queens proved that Britain’s got charisma, uniqueness, nerve and talent and I want to see more!”
Speaking of Ru’s girls on the other side of the pond, can we talk about the continued success of RPDR UK’s ‘The Frock Destroyers?!’ In case you missed it, Blu Hydranega, Davina De Campo, and Baga Chipz performed as The Frock Destroyers, a play on the British girl group, The Cock Destroyers, on last week’s episode. Their debut song managed to rank higher than pop princesses Ariana Grande’s remix of Lizzo’s Good As Hell and Selena Gomez‘s Lose You To Love Me in the charts.

Back to RuPaul’s girls here in the states, three fan favorites will star on We’re Here, a six-episode unscripted program set to debut in the spring of 2020. The reality show is set to follow Shangela, Eureka, and Bob the Drag Queen as they recruit small-town folks across America to strut their stuff in a one-night-only event. According to Entertainment Weekly, the queens will “inspire and teach their own ‘drag daughters’ to step outside their comfort zone” and transform into full drag for the show.
