New, Now, Next!

I was honored to be invited to the taping of Logo's New, Now, Next award show last week. It was jam-packed with gaylebrities: Robert Verdi, the VGL boys, Richie Rich, Cheyenne Jackson, Mike Diamond, Erin Foley to name a few-- and that cute "hybrid" draglette Ongina from Rupaul's Drag Race.

Ongina saw me and says, "You starred in that movie with the guy who has two first names!" Ha! Everyone loves Charlie David.

The show will air on LOGO next month. There were also some fierce ladies there, including the Paradiso Girls, rapper Eve, and Vanessa Williams. These were the good divas. The wicked one? RUPAUL: Who kept everyone waiting awkwardly for a good half an hour. I was sitting at a table with people who run Logo. Despite their power, nobody could pull Ru out of her dressing room and onto the stage. Eventually, they got a text from one of her handlers which read: "She won't come out...says she's having a "slight" problem. We presume it's with the wardrobe."

One queen at the table screeched, "The wardrobe isn't distracting her facial wasting like it used to!"

The executives were like, "What if this was a live show?" Imagine all the money they put into this, at the Hiro Ballroom, for her to refuse to come out of her dressing room for 30 minutes? I said, "Time to announce Logo's next season will be called ONGINA's Drag Race!"

After the 30 minutes, RuPaul finally did appear on stage looking like a crimped red lampshade. We were left to presume her perpetual "slight problem" has mostly to do with professionalism.
