RuPaul has left the drag race circuit and taken to the streets of Los Angeles in a brand new web series entitled "RuPaul Drives..."
The series, produced by World of Wonder (the company who is also behind "Drag Race," "Million Dollar Listing," and "#CandidlyNicole"), puts RuPaul in the driver's seat as he cruises through LA picking up a new guest every episode. His passengers will include YouTube superstar Tyler Oakley, Lady Bunny and Chad Michaels, among others.
In a press release about the new series sent to The Huffington Post, RuPaul explains the idea behind "RuPaul Drives..." saying, "Everyone in LA needs a lift; spiritually and physically. From drag racing to a leisure drive, I always enjoy being behind the wheel."
America's favorite drag queen will skip the drag, put the pedal to the metal, and embark on deep, intimate conversations with each episode's featured guest, while navigating the highways and alleyways of LA.
Check out World of Wonder on Monday for the premiere episode, and in the meantime, watch a preview of the series above.
Amanda Bynes slammed the RuPaul's Drag Race host—and her own father—today on Twitter, when she wrote, "My dad is as ugly as RuPaul! So thankful I look nothing like you both! I had nose surgery after my mug shots so my nose and I are gorgeous!"
RuPaul, in an attempt to remain classy and teach followers a little bit about psychology, responded with, "Derogatory slurs are ALWAYS an outward projection of a person's own poisonous self-loathing @AmandaBynes."
RuPal then topped it off with a joke that's an oldie but a goodie (and kinda perfect in this situation), "I'm a man, duh!"
There's no better way to start a week than taking drag queen fashion tips from RuPaul.
That's according to Nicole Richie, at least, who tweeted, 'If you didn't start your Monday running into RuPaul then you haven#t lived or loved' to kick off the fifth episode of her new AOL web series #CandidlyNicole.(CLICK HERE TO WATCH EPISODE)
On the four minute webisode released Tuesday, the 31-year-old reality star and host sat down with 52-year-old RuPaul, the most infamous of all cross-dressers, at Decades, Hollywood's destination for vintage couture and modern luxury consignment.
The pair talked about a wide variety of topics, from RuPaul's favorite designer and supermodel to the tricks to putting on eyelashes to different drag queen slang.
However, the Logo reality competition star was determined to find something for Richie that would take her look to that 'drag level.'
'We want you to be glamazon,' RuPaul explained to Richie, after telling her she wouldn't be wearing her usual gypsy storyline. 'The drag mentality is taking what you have and turning the volume up to 14…'
The famous drag queen and musician wasn't dressed in his trademark wig and glittery dress either.
Wearing a cherry red suit, pink button-up, white sandals and glasses, RuPaul transformed into a fabulous fashionista, advising Richie as she tried on a wide variety of outfits that would rival the stark and memorable number she wore to this year's Met Gala.
Richie tried on a number of outfits while RuPaul gave his brutally honest opinion.
Her coat of purple feathers didn't go over very well, nor did a yellow dress with a hat flaunting a plume of orange feathers which Richie felt was 'a little Vegas.'
RuPaul also taught the mother of two how to properly stand like a drag queen, stick her chin out and make her neck as long as possible.
Finally, Richie slid into a glittery pink dress which RuPaul loved.
'I wouldn’t go this sparkly in my real life,' The Simple Life star proclaimed.
'We don’t concentrate on real life,' RuPaul responded. 'We concentrate on drag. You're born naked and the rest is drag.'
From ghetto-fabulous to glamazon—to award winner? Our favorite supermodel of the world, RuPaul, has just been nominated for Best Reality Host in the 3rd annual Critic’s Choice TV Awards by the Broadcast Television Journalists Association. This is the awards show that television critics and writers vote for—the people who devote their lives to the small screen. (They’re the folks who helped catapult a little show called Homeland into a critical and fan favorite last year.)
It was no easy feat making the cut: Emmy darlings like Modern Family, 30 Rock, Mad Men and Girls were either shut out or got a measly one nomination. We’d tell Ru not to $&% it up, but we’re sure she’s got it on lock.
