“It’s like a gay Sophie’s Choice…”
Can you imagine RuPaul’s Drag Race without Michelle Visage? We can’t. Ru’s best squirrel friend has been by his side for almost 10 years now, and has experienced most – if not all – of the standout moments in the show’s history first-hand.
So when Entertainment Tonight asked what her favourite Drag Race moment of all time is, it’s no wonder she described it as a “Sophie’s Choice” situation – but she still managed to narrow it down to one special moment.
“My number one moment is the first time I got to sit in that chair next to Ru,” Michelle revealed.
“People ask me all the time what my favourite season was, and it’s like a gay Sophie’s Choice. I can’t pick a favourite queen, besides Ru, and I can’t pick a favourite season.”
While she couldn’t pick a favourite season she did say season three will “always be special” to her. “That’s where I was able to finally commence, and Ru looked at me and said, ‘Now the show begins’.”
Michelle was also asked if she has a favourite lip sync, to which she listed off some all-time classics.
“It’s really difficult because there are so many great ones,” she admitted.
“Latrice Royale and Kenya Michaels doing Natural Woman was a good one, DiDa Ritz doing the Natalie Cole lip sync, Delta and Manila doing MacArthur Park, Alyssa and Tatianna, there’s a whole bunch of great ones.”
When we spoke to Michelle about Drag Race UK, she said fans are “going to die” when they see the new series. “Just know we are celebrating all things British. I’m obsessed with your country so I was in my element.”
