DRAG UPDATE: RuPaul to receive Hollywood Walk of Fame star, BenDeLaCreme ousts herself, Trixie Mattel coming to Seattle in June

by Albert Rodriguez - SGN A&E Writer

If you've been sleeping under a rock the past week or two, I'm about to wake your ass up with a bit of news from the drag world.

RuPaul, the Khaleesi of drag queens, will soon be starring on Hollywood...literally. The two-time Emmy-winning reality series host is going to receive a star on the famous Los Angeles landmark attraction, the Hollywood Walk of Fame, on March 17 just outside her World of Wonder offices. Not only does a celebrity have to be nominated to get his or her star on the Walk of Fame, but a selection committee has to approve the nomination and then somebody has to pay the cost of adding the star (between $30,000 and $40,000) to the sidewalk. One other member of the LGBT community earned his star this year, too, and that would be 'Glee' and 'American Horror Story' creator Ryan Murphy, so RuPaul is in good company.

You saw the episode, right? The one where BenDeLaCreme takes herself out of the competition on the current 'All-Stars Season 3' of 'RuPaul's Drag Race', after positioning herself as the frontrunner for the crown. I mean, after that Paul Lynde impersonation on the 'Snatch Game', the Seattle queen pretty much had the win in the bag. But when tasked to choose which of the bottom three - Kennedy Davenport, Shangela, Trixie Mattel - to send home, she instead made the exit herself, lipstick-scribbled farewell on the mirror to boot. Maybe it was a power move (she was gonna win, anyway), or maybe the intensity of the show got to her, or maybe it was the sincerest of gestures, but whatever it was, BenDeLaCreme is goners. The Emerald City will have to settle for its lone titleholder, Jinkx Monsoon. We do love both queens dearly, as both have generously interviewed with Seattle Gay News, and we certainly wish them continued success.

Speaking of Trixie Mattel, the adorable clown-like queen - a cross between Tammy Faye Baker and a life-sized, boozy drag version of Barbie - is coming to Seattle this summer. The Milwaukee-born entertainer will bring her 'Now with Moving Parts' production to the Moore Theatre on June 12, as part of her 25-city North American tour. Trixie and her many suitcases of nothing but wigs and makeup will travel to Fort Lauderdale, Atlanta, New Orleans, Columbus, Buffalo, Portland, Salt Lake City and Houston, to name a few of her stops. Tickets are on sale now at all Ticketmaster outlets, or online at www.Ticketmaster.com.

Lastly, although it was announced a few weeks back, if you haven't heard yet 'Drag Race' alum and Season 6 winner Bianca Del Rio is returning to the Emerald City. She interviewed with SGN last time she swung her purse through town and was a total hoot! The Louisiana native, who I believe is now living in LA, will perform her new show 'Blame it on Bianca' on April 6 at The Showbox SoDo with tickets on sale now at www.axs.com.
