Well it's been just over a week since RuPaul gave the big, glittery platform boot to Thorgy Thor, and she seems to be coping with the loss really well:

RuPaul's Drag Race Episode Recap: Season 8, Episode 7

So we're back in the Werk Room again after saying goodbye to... who was it that left last episode? The one with the wigs that looked like they'd been staple-gunned to her head. What was her name? Oh well, never mind. She's gone now so no one cares, least of all Derrick Barry, who thinks everything is about her anyway.

RuPaul's Drag Race Episode Recap: Season 8, Episode 5

Having just said goodbye to Naysha Lopez and the moulting chipmunk she called a hairdo, all the queens have gathered in the Werk Room to witness Chi Chi apologise for her "under-bus-throwing" demonstration on the last runway.

"Ahhhm sawwrry Dirrick, it wuz jist me being a bitch, ahhm sawwrry," she drawls.

"Yeah. It WAS you being a bitch," says Derrick, which I guess is how people accept apologies in Las Vegas.

RuPaul's Drag Race Episode Recap: Season 8, Episode 4

We begin this week's episode in the empty Werk Room, where the queens are solemnly filing in one by one, their hearts heavy after Cynthia's eviction...

Well, the expression of grief can take many forms...

As Robbie wipes Cynthia's spelling mistakes off the mirror, everyone takes a moment to reflect on what a talented queen she was, and how beautiful...

RuPaul's Drag Race Episode Recap: Season 8, Episode 3

We rejoin our queens back in the Werk Room after the stunning double elimination, where everyone is bereft at the loss of... er... that girl with the green hair and... um... that other one.

"If yew ain't steppin' dat puussy errrp, yer ass is gowwn howwwm," drawls Chi Chi DeVayne as I fall ever more in love with her.

"Who do you think RuPaul called?" says Naomi, who has already forgotten about the two evictees and has moved on to more pressing matters.

"Victoria Pork Chop Parker!" says Bob.

"Shangela!" says someone else.

Meanwhile Acid Betty is being uncharacteristically quiet...

"It's RuPaul. How soon can you get here?"
"I said never to call me on my bluetooth, dammit!"

RuPaul's Drag Race Episode Recap: Season 8, Episode 1

So Rupaul's Drag Race is back once again for another year, which is brilliant because I was only thinking the other day how much sleep I was getting and how much I was enjoying not staying up until 3am trying to come up with funny ways to compare drag queens to Etsy products and thinking of euphemisms for Michelle Visage's boobs.

PHEW, THANK GOD THAT PERIOD OF HAPPINESS AND SANITY IS FINALLY OVER.

Yes, I'll be recapping the show for your reading pleasure once more, and once more I'll have my Holy Six Pack to guide and advise me, made up of the fiercest Ru Girls of all time: Sharon Needles, Jinkx Monsoon and Alaska Thunderfuck, Bianca Del Rio and the Pride of Australia Courtney Act, plus new addition for 2016 KATYA!

WELCOME KATYA!

The time I judged a drag queen competition with Michelle Visage

So, last weekend I judged a drag queen competition with Michelle Visage.

Oh sorry, you didn't catch that? I'll repeat it: LAST WEEKEND I, PETSTARR, THE GIRL WHO SPENDS FAR TOO MANY HOURS OF HER LIFE RECAPPING RUPAUL'S DRAG RACE EVERY YEAR, JUDGED A DRAG QUEEN COMPETITION WITH MICHELLE VISAGE.

Here is Michelle Visage and I on the judging panel, which was conveniently situated on the surface of Mars.

And here we are trying out Instagram's great new filter, "Burns Victim".
I was asked to be a part of the Adelaide round of "Clash of the Queens" by In The Dark Events, the fabulous boys and girls who bring all the Ru Girls out to tour Australia (follow them on Facebook if you don't already).

Actual footage of my reaction when I was asked to judge a drag queen competition with Michelle Visage.
My friend and I actually had dinner with Michelle the night before the competition. Well, WE had dinner, she took Snapchats and stared at her empty plate. (She's a gluten-free tee-totalling vegan who doesn't eat soy or tomatoes and possibly only lives on oxygen and sequins, so you know, finding a restaurant that could accommodate her was a bit of a challenge.)

What's she like?

Well, she has FANTASTIC SKIN. I mean, seriously, flawless. If this is what happens when you stop eating literally everything then I'm on board. (Oh look, pizza!) (Fuck.)

She is small. She is funny. She has bad-ass dress sense. To dinner she wore boyfriend jeans, hair swept back with a bandana and a fur coat (it was 26C), with giant Swarovski crystal encrusted teddy bear earrings.

To the drag show she wore... well, here she is:

Because my friend and I are super professional, we brought along a Seduction album for Michelle to sign.
She pretended to be thrilled.
I'd also like to point out that both she and I wore matching facial diamante stick-ons. Obviously this makes us BFFs now.

She and I agreed on almost everything at the drag judging panel, so I (sadly) didn't get any side-eye or finger waves.

She did however throw some shade at Courtney Act, telling one queen: "You could teach Courtney Act a thing or two". Pretty sure it was meant less as a compliment to the contestant and more as a slight on Courtney, tbh.

We unanimously agreed the winner was Berri Juicy (check her out on Facebook) who did a bangin' lip sync to Nicki Minaj where her boob popped out. Fierce.

And here's the photo I took at the end of the night when I was a bit drunk because I liked my makeup and didn't want to take it off.
Meanwhile, RuPaul's Drag Race Season 8 starts on Monday, and I'll be recapping it as usual!

So you'd best go back and read my Season 7 recaps to get yourself in the mood. Start right here with EPISODE 1.
