    RuPaul's Drag Race in the Media

    Oh my! Shangela is the queen that won't quit! She's snagged herself a nice TV role that even Raja would covet:

    'Community' scoop: 'RuPaul's Drag Race' star Shangela, a.k.a. D.J. Pierce, to guest star

    by Tanner Stransky

    RuPaul’s Drag Race fave Shangela is headed back to TV! EW has exclusively learned that Shangela — also known by her out-of-drag name D.J. Pierce — just wrapped a small, but important, guest spot on an upcoming episode of NBC’s comedy Community.

    The episode, currently slated to air Nov. 3, finds Pierce playing a drag character, Miss Urbana Champaign, that makes a gut-busting viral video praising the use of Pierce’s (Chevy Chase) Hawthorne Wipes in a way that is not exactly how they were originally intended to be used. The video leads to the wipes gaining iconic status and propels Chase’s Pierce to throw a big party — that is, until his father Cornelius Hawthorne (Larry Cedar) shuts it down.

    So just what is D.J. Pierce’s character’s scandalous use for the wipes? We can’t say exactly. But considering that Pierce is a drag queen in real life and considering that does indeed influence his role in the episode, there are just so many possibilities, right? Just think about it a little bit, people!

    For his part, the fan-favorite Pierce couldn’t be happier to have done the spot on Community. “It’s a real honor and dream come true for me to be part of something as awesome as NBC’s Community, working with such comic legends as John Goodman and Chevy Chase,” D.J. Pierce told EW. “All I can say is halleloo!”

    This latest casting only extends the relationship Pierce seems to be developing with NBC, as last spring he was cast in the network’s pilot for Don Johnson’s drama A Mann’s World, which was not picked up during this past development season. Pierce has also been cast in the pilot for HBO’s comedy Spring/Fall alongside Sigourney Weaver and Tιa Leoni and recently appeared on Lifetime’s Dance Moms, teaching little girls how to do the “death drop.”

    I came here to post that I saw JuJuBee at the Atlanta Gay Pride Parade. I didn't realize it was her until her float went right on by me. So I chased it down the street to take pictures. It was totally a "groupie" moment. LOL!! BeBe Zahara, the season 1 winner, was also in the parade and I got good pics of her too.

    I knew someone here would appreciate my joy as my husband thinks I'm totally crazy. LOL!

    Piyah Martell, Transgender Teen, To Guest Star On 'RuPaul's Drag Race'

    First Posted: 02/13/2012 10:49 am Updated: 02/13/2012 11:58 am

    Last fall we interviewed Piyah Martell, a transgender teen and Internet sensation who was born with a rare condition called Caudal Regression Syndrome that kept her spine and legs from fully developing in the womb.

    Martell has gained a following thanks to her YouTube cover videos of songs by artists like Lady Gaga and Mariah Carey, and now she's headed to the small screen with a guest spot on tonight's episode of "RuPaul's Drag Race."

    The episode will also feature guest judges Amber Riley from "Glee" and singer Natalie Cole.

    "RuPaul's Drag Race" airs Mondays at 9pm ET on LOGO.

    RuPaul Voted 'Best Reality Host' in TV.Com Poll

    The Huffington Post | By James Nichols Posted: 01/03/2014 4:23 pm EST | Updated: 01/03/2014 4:36 pm EST

    After an intense week of voting, the world has finally declared what we all already knew: RuPaul really is the best host of a reality television show there is.

    The Supermodel of The World beat out the likes of Adam Levine, Demi Lovato, Blake Shelton and Howard Stern to take the crown for "Best Reality Show Judge Or Host 2013" in this year's annual TV.com poll.

    In fact, RuPaul didn't just win -- he slayed the competition with over 30,000 more votes than Shelton, who nabbed second place, topping the charts with 104,871.

    As if that wasn't enough, "RuPaul's Drag Race" also snatched the wig title of "Best Reality Competition Series 2013" from big names such as "Face Off," "Survivor," "The Voice" and "American Idol."

    ConDRAGulations, Mama Ru!
    Nice! Can't wait for the new season in February!

    Jinkx Monsoon has been the subject of a documentary that's still being completed. Someone has been filming her since before she went on Drag Race, and the film has a Kickstarter campaign to help get the production finished. There's a trailer on the homepage:

    BTW, RuPaul does a web series on YouTube called "RuPaul Drives..." -- he and a guest drive around and chat (kind of like Seinfeld's show...I wonder who came up with the idea first, lol). The newest episode features director John Waters.

    Season 7 doesn't begin until the end of January, but Bianca and Adore are making the most of their exposure. They shot a commercial for Starbucks, defiinitely the first of its kind. Although I deeply loathe Starbucks and would never spend money in one, I love some of their PR moves lately:

    Jinkx Monsoon, Alaska, Courtney Act and Jackie Beat are each doing holiday-themed shows in the same Off-Broadway theater this month, and they were interviewed by the New York Times:

    Bummer! Season 7 doesn't start until "Spring" -- still no definite premiere date, but that means we won't get it until at least the end of March.

    In other news, UK talk show host bought the rights to do a UK version of Drag Race, and is trying to get it off the ground. He gave an interview this week after a lot of rumors started flying around:
