Best Subscription Service Cable Network Reality Drag Queen Competition Show Ever?

If you haven't been watching RuPaul's Drag Race, get off of this blog right now because we want nothing to do with you...or at least catch up on the last few episodes online (thanks future!) Just look at these remaining queens:

Shannel, witchy woman

Ongina, Filipina diva

Nina Flowers, and thrust that hip

Bebe Zahara Benet, African queen

Then there's this hot mess:

Rebecca Glasscock, tragic

But beneath the glitz and the glamour and the three pounds of make-up -- and we're cuing the sappy music -- there's a heart. Monday's Drag Race was the weepiest show we've seen since, well, Sunday's Oscars. After winning the Viva Glam challenge, wherein each queen had to shoot her own VG spot (that sounds dirty...I'll take it), Ongina broke down crying, her tiny hat and veil masking part of her face -- again with the music -- but not her soul. Turns out she's been living with the HIV for two years and hadn't even told her parents and winning this challenge gave her the courage to speak out. Touching, right? Next thing you know the water works are flowing -- judge Merle Ginsberg looked stunning with tears down those flawless cheeks -- except good ole Ru, who kept it composed and detached, yet warm and loving, cocking that bony head to the side in sympathy. Now this is good TV, kids.
