The RuPaul Show

The RuPaul Show is where drag diva and self-declared "Supermodel of the World" RuPaul Charles hosted 100 episodes of this groundbreaking VH1 talk show. In the tradition of the flashy 1970s variety shows, each episode opened with RuPaul making her entrance on a flashy set; she then walked down a runway (shades ofCher) and performed a verse or two of a song. Ru would then ask the audience how they liked her outfit, show them the "front" and the "back" of the dress, and then head to the couch for talk. Her series showcased an eclectic mix of celebrities, from gay icons like Cher and k.d.lang to pop singers (an early appearance by Backstreet Boys) to minstream entertainers like Nell Carter and Lynda Carter.
