What do you think? Are you planning to check out this competition series on Paramount+ in June?
Graham, stick to what you do well, talk shows and radio… stop trying to be into drag, we know its fake and you’re doing it for the cash oddly…. because you know, not poor. I’m also rather bored of Michelle Visage being almost as ubiquitous as RuPaul Charles, perhaps take a year off, get some surgery, relax and chill for abit, then come back, because it does seem no one has mentioned that terrible spectre of television that seems to be looming – over exposure.
