RuPaul Is "Ready For" U.K. Version Of Drag Race
There have been rumors about the United Kingdom getting its own RuPaul's Drag Race, rumors that Michelle Visage and Ru herself confirmed on the latest podcast of "What's The Tee?" Jonathan Ross, a huge celebrity Across the Pond, has apparently bought rights to the franchise, which Ru and Michelle confirmed on the broadcast.
"Jonathan Ross has bought the UK rights to RuPaul's Drag Race and apparently he's going to do it with another group of people," RuPaul said, "if it comes to fruition!"
Michelle corrected Ru with details that filtered out from her recent lunch with Jonathan:
"He’s a huge fan of the show and he believes what I believe- that people want you. The people don’t want another drag queen, 100%. And when I told him that you were down to do it, he was like 'What?! This changes everything. Absolutely!'
"This is the way it’s supposed to be. There’s a huge following that they don’t want anybody else- they want Ru. And then the third person would be that Brit who would tie it all together. You. Me. Third Brit."
RuPaul was on board with the idea. “Let’s do it! I’m ready for it."
Jonathan is apparently pitching the U.K. version of the hit reality show to interested networks.
Any nominations for the "Third Brit," Instincters? Fingers crossed on my end for Jodie Harsh or someone from the Ab Fab monarchy.
