Nina was very thoughtful when discussing the show and had a lot of insightful comments on how the teams challenges worked for and against participants. And she also gave us a glimpse of what's to come for Nina Flowers now that reality TV is over.
An excerpt from our conversation is below:
What is your reaction to being eliminated? Did the Teams aspect play a role in that?
"It definitely had something to do with it more than if we would have had to compete as individuals. Competing in teams is definitely tougher. It's not just about your performance, it's also about your team partner. We did the best we could as a team and it is what it is. I'm sad that I wasn't able to take it all the way to the end like I did on season one, but I'm OK with it. It was definitely a fulfilling experience and I feel happy I was a part of All Stars."
Last night on RuPaul's All Stars Drag Race the queens were still in dynamic duos and working on that suddenly appearing S in C-U-N-T-S. This time they had to stage a celebrity impersonation sketch comedy variety show. It was a laugh riot. Or not.
Before all that they were challenged to a little game called #inDaButtRu where they had to prove how well they knew their partners. Even down to the undies they wear out of drag! Rujubee wins and their prize: two creamy pies in the face.
For the main challenge it was RuPaul's Gaff-in Variety Show! Not only did they have to choose a celebrity to impersonate, they had do a comedy routine that played off their partners. I love this challenge and this is where the show really excels – however I didn't think anyone was that funny. Just me?
I love it when the queens have to really stretch and show off their comedic chops. Vicki Lawrence from Mama's House was the guest judge and she also starred in the comedy routines.
They're baaack with a wigence and a fury of sequins! And these girls work it better than any girl I know. Oh please, Latrice "Mother Effing" Royale, please, please descend upon my house in full paint and do my make-up before unleashing me forth into the world. Mama needs to go to church and she needs her everlasting glory!
Before we go any further let me also profess my undying love for Chad Michaels (and of course Cher). I spread La Mer on my toast too, bitch.
Gentleman start your engines… and ladies get your feathers, your wigs, your sequins, your sass because in the best news to come this fall RuPaul’s All Stars Drag Race is coming soon! Oh, I just. cannot. wait. Literally. I. Die.
Bringing together an amazing cast of some of the greats and some of the huhs, All Star Drag Race is ready to declare the queen among queens. Let’s hear it for the girls and may they lipsync for their lives!
