and Gentlemen, start revving your engines because tonight, Ru Paul is coming back to television thanks to LOGO and World of Wonder Productions.
The glitter glamazon knows how to work it and now she’ll be sharing her secrets of success with the next generation of supermodels on a reality game show called “Ru Paul’s Drag Race.” It’ll be a fierce fight to the finish!
One of the few drag stars using his real name, Ru Paul’s mother declared her choice back in the hospital by quipping, “’His name is Ru Paul Andre Charles and he’s gonna be a star!
Cause ain’t another mother f**ker alive with a name like that! In ninth grade, Ru was given the superlatives “Best Afro” and “Best Dancer” at Gompers Junior High School. Right after he received his GED, Ru Paul worked as a used luxury car salesman.
He drove around the country picking up and delivering the hot wheels.
Maybe that was his inspiration for the title “Drag Race? In January 1982, Ru Paul made his first television appearance on “The American Music Show,” which aired on public access. Ru Paul once had a cameo on, of all shows, “Walker, Texas Ranger.” She clearly loves cowboys.
His singing group was called “Ru Paul and the U-hauls” and they performed “Shotgun” by Junior Walker and the All Stars. The outfits were designed by the couturier of Michelle Obama’s inauguration gown, Jason Wu. Speaking of the Obamas, Ru makes a beautiful Michelle…and a pretty dashing Barack!
Ru Paul, of course, made his two backup singers their costumes. As her career was gearing up , Ru Paul worked as a short order cook (like Lafayette from “True Blood”) while she began playing and dancing at New York City clubs. After starring as Riff Raff in a successful Atlanta theater production of “Rocky Horror Picture Show,” Ru Paul packed up a van with the now notorious club DJ Larry Tee and La Homa (who directed him in the original ”Starrbooty”) and headed back to New York City. In 1990, Ru Paul was voted the “Queen of Manhattan” by the downtown club glitterati. On his 32nd birthday, November 17, 1992, Ru Paul released the biggest hit of his carerer, “Supermodel.” Work it, girl! And in 1995, MAC cosmetics made Ru Paul their cover girl and she lived up to her song by becoming the first drag queen supermodel for reals. It never ceases to amaze the lengths to which men will go to find love. Online dating has encouraged it and is used by men and women, who have understood that they are never going to find the 'loves of their lives' in nightclubs.In this regard, both the sexes treat the task of finding their mate rather like a science, giving dating agencies details about themselves - body particulars, ambitions, likes and dislikes, in the hope that the agencies will match them with a suitable mate.Alternatively, people surf these agencies' websites where they can hand pick the type of spouse they desire from a collection of photographs and profiles.
