Hedda Dishes Drag Race :: Celebrity impersonations (with shits and giggles)

What can I say about "RuPaul's Drag Race" episode 5? That Dita Ritz should be given the boot for spelling surgeon, sergin. That Kenya Michaels, Puerto Rico's very own Pez dispenser thinks Beyonce acts like Britney Spears on crack, beats a parked car with an umbrella. That Milan (who is a dear friend) might be one of the worst Diana Ross impersonators on the face of the Earth. For God sakes I could do a better job. That the crocodile tears Wilam shed at the end of the show proves she is a terrible actress and that she should be fed to an alligator. Phi-Phi, open your mouth up nice and wide.

This week's challenge had the girls parodying the 1970s game show "Match Game," calling it Snatch Game. Clever! "Match Game" is a television game show in which contestants attempted to match celebrities' answers to fill-in-the-blank questions. The two celebrity judges were the talented Loretta Devine and the somewhat annoying eunuch, Ross Mathews. Each girl was to impersonate a female celebrity, which some did with great ease, while others did with disastrous results.
