Just hold off on the throwing of rotten vegetables. This week, our Grande Dame is the fabulous Phi Phi O'Hara!!!!!
At first I didn't care for her on the Drag Race, but after some time just kind of fell in love with her. Sorry..... I love a good bitch. She was such a nasty, snippy bitch that I found myself digging beneath the surface, trying to find the compassionate soul beneath the layers of makeup and wigs which revealed the genuine Phi Phi O’Hara . And it was definitely there. We saw it in her defensiveness. We saw it in her absolute determination and drive. We saw it when she spoke about her distant relationship with her father. But most importantly, we saw it in her talent. Phi Phi O’Hara has that natural talent for propelling the spotlight onto herself and being a fabulous drag queen. After having seen her in Philly and meeting her now, it's so a façade, she was cool as hell, and such a sweet heart. And she has really taken her style to a whole new level. And not many queens can pull off such diverse looks and wig colors, and then there is the serious fierce paint!!!! And that’s probably what I like most about her… and the fact that beneath the glitter and glam making her the Mean Girl of RuPaul’s Drag Race, she really exudes an incredible amount of confidence. Phi Phi is originally from San Antonio, Texas, but then needed a bigger platform... so she can now be seen in and around Chicago where she resides, but tours the country too. Did I mention he’s super adorable out of drag? He is looking good these days!
