'RuPaul's Drag Race' Recap: Daytime Showdown

Serving their best morning talk show host realness?


'RuPaul's Drag Race' continued its lap towards crowning their 9th season queen, with another stellar episode that saw quite the shocking lip sync.

Following Kimora's elimination last week, the remaining queens were given their next challenge, and it was a doozy!

They were split into two groups (Trinity, Eureka, Peppermint, Cynthia, Charlie, and Nina VS Aja, Sasha, Shea, Alexis, Valentina, and Farrah) and would have to battle it out in morning talk show sketches.

Right off the bat, Trinity's team were already at each other's throats, as Eureka stepped on a lot of toes especially Trinity.

Meanwhile, the other team had their own problems, specifically Charlie and Cynthia working on their joint bit. The Cucu's English was lacking in a big way, and Charlie was trying desperately to fix it.

Let's break down each group:

Team Trinity

With Peppermint and Trinity at the helm, there were a few slips, but they got through the intro. Charlie and Cynthia flatlined, but Cynthia managed to use her quirkiness to save the routine. Seeing as Charlie was the professional, she completely fell apart in this challenge. 

Nina and Eureka dominated their own bit, with a hilarious take on padding using food. The chemistry between the two of them was off the charts. 

And then the ending? 


Charlie stepped in and cut off the interview with guest Naya Rivera when she noticed the teleprompter said the interview was over. However, the ending came across as unprofessional when neither queen signed off on the broadcast. 

Team Aja

Well, let's keep this real: 

Shea and Sasha absolutely slaughtered their bit, and had yours truly in stitches the entire time. Alexis and Farrah were fine as hosts, with great chemistry, but the problem? 

Aja and Valentina. 

They were stumbling over each other's lines, didn't seem to be on cue, and....let's keep this honest? 

Fucked up the ending. 

The interview with guest Naya Rivera was easily an episode highlight, as they all came together and managed to end on a high note.

In a great moment after the nighttime realness runway looks, RuPaul quickly revealed that Sasha and Shea were the winners of the challenge, as well, that Team Aja was safe!

Following the judges' critiques, it was obvious the two that would be in trouble would be Charlie and Trinity....

And it was just that!!

What came next was Trinity dominating the lip sync, as Charlie lethargically just stood there, barely mouthing the lyrics.

It was pretty obvious who was going home, and there was no question about it. Ru sent Charlie packing, and we're now down to 11.

What did you guys think of the episode?

Madonna Delivers Brutal Truth During Billboard Honor


 I've previously spoken out about this, but need to say more.

Madonna was honored by Billboard as Woman of the Year at last nights event, and when she took the stage....

She delivered a speech that EVERYONE needs to hear!!

Speaking out on the ageism, sexism, and controversy surrounding her legendary career, the Queen of Pop held nothing back.

Including some tears.

If this speech ever needed to be delivered, it was now.

Thank you Madonna.

Read her entire speech below:

"I stand before you as a doormat. Oh, I mean, as a female entertainer," Madonna said. "Thank you for acknowledging my ability to continue my career for 34 years in the face of blatant sexism and misogyny and constant bullying and relentless abuse."

Recalling her life as a teenager when she first moved to New York: 

"People were dying of AIDS everywhere. It wasn’t safe to be gay, it wasn’t cool to be associated with the gay community," Madonna recalled. "It was …

Did you miss me?

Well, yours truly knew he wasn't going to be able to stay away forever......

After just over 3 months, I've gotten the itch to start writing again.

Over the next few weeks, I'll be dipping my toes back into my blog and of course, continuing to express my undying love of Britney Spears.

Truthfully, these past few months have given me time to reflect on what I want to get out of writing this blog again. It's not about quantity of posts, but the quality of what I'm writing. I don't watch Keeping Up With the Kardashians, so why write about it?

I need to focus my blog on writing about the things I love. This will no longer be a stream of daily posts about anything and everything Hollywood. Instead, this will be focused on what I find interesting and love.

I mean, 'RuPaul's Drag Race' All Stars 3 is fast obviously I'll be writing about that. Awards season is in full swing, so of course that's going to be discu…

'Big Little Lies' Officially Returning For Season 2

And shockingly, yours truly isn't jumping up and down for joy.

I'll get to that.

HBO has announced that this years breakout hit 'Big Little Lies' starring Nicole Kidman & Reese Witherspoon, will be returning for a 2nd season.

At this years Emmy Awards, the show took home Outstanding Limited Series, Outstanding Lead Actress (Kidman), Outstanding Supporting Actor (Alexander Skarsgard), Outstanding Supporting Actress (Laura Dern) and Outstanding Directing (Jean-Marc Vallee).

As of right now, only Witherspoon and Kidman are confirmed to return, although reports are saying most of the cast will return as well.

Now, here comes my complaining.

This series was perfectly executed, featured stunning performances from everyone (okay, even Shailene Woodley was FINE),  and delivered an outstanding (at what we thought at the time) finale.

So.......why do we need to possibly ruin everything with a 2nd season?!

That's not to say that it will be awful, but when something is th…

WATCH: Britney Spears SLAYS Her Billboard Music Awards Medley!!

I haven't with me.

Britney Spears took the stage at tonight's Billboard Music Awards with a career-spanning medley, and girl didn't just bring it.....


Our favorite Louisiana girl brought the house down right out the gate, with a scorching performance that included 'Work Bitch', 'Womanizer' (THAT BREAKDOWN!!!),'I Love Rock N' Roll,  'Breathe On Me', 'Touch of my Hand', 'Slave 4 U' and of course, 'Toxic'.

What has to be mentioned is Brit's energy on stage. Her smile was back, she moved like the pro we all fell in love with, and it was FIRE from start to finish.

Check out the FULL performance below!!
