First Look: Here Is The First Full Trailer For ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’ Season 7

The Realness Ru-turns on March 2
"The is the most draggedy season EVER!"

In early December, we learned with queens will be competing for drag royalty in the upcoming 7th season of RuPaul’s Drag Race. Today, we get our first look at the just-released first trailer for the new season … and we learn that the judging panel has been reconfigured with new judges. Santino Rice, one of the main judges of Drag Race since season 1, has been replaced this season with Ross Matthews and Carson Kressley (who will judge the competition alongside RuPaul and Michelle Visage). But, even tho Santino will not be one of the main judges this season, I understand he will appear as a guest judge (other guest judges this season will include Ariana Grande, Kat Dennings, Demi Lovato, Kathy Griffin, Tamar Braxton, Alyssa Milano and more). Honestly, I don’t really understand the need for such a drastic change-up of the judging panel but, honestly, the show is all about the drag queen competitors so … I’m not really worried about the quality of the show. From the look of this first trailer, it looks like we are in store for a great season of RuPaul’s Drag Race ahead. The new season premieres on Logo on Monday March 2. Who’s excited?

A Reality TV Star Is Born

The TV Guide

Back in November, I shared the first look at the new Bravo TV reality show Friends to Lovers? which stars my good friend Darion Lowenstein as one of the friends on the show lookin’ for love.

Keshia Knight Pulliam Refused To Call Bill Cosby, And Was Fired From ‘Celebrity Apprentice’

Not a good look, 'Celebrity Apprentice'
This is awful.

Let me just start by saying this clip lit’rally hurt my head. I have my own reality TV weaknesses, but this is one reason I can only take so much of these shows—OMG everyone is constantly talking over everyone! It took me forever just to figure out WTF was going on! But apparently, Keshia Knight Pulliam (best remembered as Rudy Huxtable from The Cosby Show) had to awkwardly explain that she hasn’t spoken to Bill Cosby in five years. But it’s awkward because of what we know now, and it’s awkward because everyone in the room (especially Kenya Moore) is attacking her for not having called him to get a donation for a charity. This was filmed long before the sexual assault allegations started making headlines, but Complex points out that some sort of editing or disclaimer should have happened here. I mean, Pulliam is basically fired for not making contact with Cosby. Peep the video for more, and tell us what you think. Also, click inside for a horrific video of all the Bill Cosby accusers speaking out.

Was Anyone Else Watching ‘House Of DVF’?

A reality show depicting actual hard-working, intelligent women

How did this show real me in? Well, Diane Von Furstenberg‘s House of DVF has to be one of the only non-trashy, entertaining, women-based reality shows on television—and that is quite a feat. It seems like the method for a lot of these shows is very basic: let’s put a group of seemingly well-dressed women together in any scenario whatsoever because seemingly well-dressed women will always try to tear each other apart. House of DVF was one of the first reality shows where I felt like—while there was drama—it wasn’t violent, trashy, or cringe-worthy, and there was actually a lot to learn from the women on the show—especially those helping Diane Von Furstenberg choose her next Global Ambassador. If you caught the finale (or don’t care about SPOILERS!), click inside for more!

And The Winner Of ‘Survivor: San Juan Del Sur – Blood Vs. Water’ Is . . .

SPOILER ALERT WARNING

Back in August we got our first look at the season 29 cast of Survivor: San Juan del Sur – Blood vs. Water and last night, the sole surviving winner was revealed on live TV. After all these years, I am still a really big fan of the Surivor franchise and I watched every single episode of this season religiously. As per usual, this season entertained and annoyed me to no end but, thankfully, the most deserving players made it all the way to the end. I loved that the final 3 were all women because, truly, the ladies played the best game this season. And, of the last three ladies, only one truly stood apart as the ONLY player deserving of the million dollar prize. Click below to find out if Jaclyn, Natalie or Missy was voted the Sole Survivor of San Juan del Sur – Blood vs. Water. More »
