Putting a wig on a reality show empire? We’re here for it!
According to HGTV:
In eight hour-long episodes of the forthcoming series Trixie Motel — coming in 2022 to the streaming service Discovery+ — Trixie Mattel faces the reality of having invested her life savings into a rundown motel in super-trendy Palm Springs, California. But with help from her boyfriend and co-owner, David, among other fabulous helpers, she takes on the massive renovation.
During the series, Trixie and her team will tackle a commercial kitchen, pool area and seven uniquely themed motel rooms to create the ultimate Drag paradise.
Other details of what Trixie Motel will involve have still not been shared, but we will likely see a top to bottom refurbishment that includes pink shag carpet, velvet furniture, and lots of whimsy.
Probably like this, but more gay.
Trixie Mattel is no stranger to being a venture capitalist. The artist recently became co-owner of historic Milwaukee gay bar This Is It!
Now, just to wait for the Katya Kat Kafe.
