Guess who’s back in the house?
Vanessa Vanjie Mateo is the name that’s rolling off everyone’s lips, and now she’s back with her RuPaul’s Drag Race sisters to talk about being the undeniable viral phenomenon of the season. As it turns out, her “Miss Vanjie” chant was an improvised moment that extended her 15 minutes in a wonderful way. “Girl, in my head I was not gonna go home so I did not prepare no message to leave.” Thanks to her catchphrase, mama has been booked and busy with gig all over the country and even met Lil’ Kim. (Their upcoming collaboration is still TBD.)
Now, let’s talk lip syncs. Of course, who could forget Monét and Dusty’s legendary lip sync battle to Nicki Minaj’s “Pound The Alarm?” Despite what many people thought, Monét did her fake death drop off the cuff (hey, sometimes in the moment is everything!) Mama Ru also questions Aquaria about her fit over the Kameron/Eureka double save. Meanwhile, Monique Heart is unbothered about forgetting the lyrics to her lip sync against The Vixen, because at the end of the day she gave it her all. And finally, Miz Cracker talks about going home to Kameron for her witty and totally un-sexy performance to “Nasty Girl” by Vanity 6. “If I tried to do what Kameron did, I would have lost harder.”
And that’s only the tip of the iceberg, kitty girls. See what happens when the bear is poked one last time when the RuPaul’s Drag Race reunion airs Thursday June 21st at 8/7c only on VH1.
