RuPaul On Drag Race Comparisons To Tyra’s Top Model: ‘I Let Her Borrow All My Used Wigs! That’s It!’

Posted on January 10, 2009 with 4 Comments

RuPaul shut down any comparison critics may have had about his new reality series RuPaul’s Drag Race and  Tyra Banks’ reality series America’s Next Top Model during a recent press tour in Los Angeles.

When asked if he owed anything to Tyra the cross-dressing diva blurted out to a crowd of reporters, “She learned everything from me darling! Don’t give me no Tyra … ! That’s it! I let her borrow all my used wigs. That’s it!”

“This was a show that had to be made, darling! Egg? Chicken? It’s here, eat it up! Egg? Chicken? Chicken, egg? What came first? I don’t care! Give me my breakfast!”

And if you still think RuPaul’s reality show about drag queens competing to win the title of America’s next “Drag Queen Superstar,” reminds you in even the slightest way of a bunch of models vying for the title of “America’s Next Top Model”, “then you’re retarded,” RuPaul says.

RuPaul’s Drag Race debuts Feb. 2 on the LOGO channel.
