CELEBRITY INTERVENTION: RUPAUL EDITION
YOU GUYS. Mama Ru went and wrote us a book.
It’s super exciting. She’s our fave too. You’re probably like us so you’re thinking OHMYGAWWD I cannot wait to read some sassy tea on Drag Race and Michelle Visage’s décolletage and how to deal with a MEATY tuck. Perhaps you’re waiting on an apology note to The Vixen, or to all of us for not having Shangela crowned in the last season of ALL STARS. Well, girl, I don’t want to disappoint you, but there are ZERO essay-style pieces in this tome. In fact when we just typed the word WROTE we had to pause for a giggle fit because THOUGH WE WORSHIP AT THE TEMPLE OF MS. PAUL … AND SHE MAKES ZERO MISTAKES (cough cough cough) it feels more like this book was dictated to some baby intern over margaritas than written.
That’s not to say we didn’t enjoy the 35 minutes it took us to “READ” this book. GURU, which came out October 23, is full of GORGEOUS pictures of the queen of all things, AS WELL AS some pretty stellar life advice. Think … Iyanla FIX MY LIFE … except written by your favorite drag queen. There are no backstage secrets here, just the OPRAH’S NEXT CHAPTER style … get your shiz together/after school special type philosophies Mama Ru has become known for in the most recent seasons of Drag Race. IF YOU CAN’T LOVE YOURSELF, HOW THE HELL YOU GONNA LOVE SOMEBODY ELSE CAN I GET AN AMEN.
Should you buy this book? ABSOLUTELY. It will look great on your coffee table! And you gotta get the fools in your life SOMETHING for Christmas, this is as good a gift as any. EVERYBODY needs help and inspiration and where else are we gonna get that? Bible study? This book is our new daily devotional, our new quicky therapy, our new guide to not cutting all these heauxs for the mess they’re putting us though. We thought the best way to get you to buy GURU was to put it to use for some of our favorite MESSES.
So buckle up as we put Mama Ru’s wise words into practice . . .
