Nancy Pelosi Tells The Queens They Are An “Inspiration” In New “All Stars” Clip

"When I got the invitation to visit the workroom, I couldn't resist..."

After last week’s stunning twist when BenDeLaCreme sent herself home, the remaining queens are clearly still shook as they return to the workroom in this week’s episode of RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars.

The fierce five left do not have much time to sit around and reflect on the game-changing shocker before RuPaul enters the workroom with another surprise: Congresswoman, Nancy Pelosi!

In the clip the queens are truly shocked by her arrival, and Pelosi gushes about how she couldn’t turn down an invitation to visit the set of Drag Race.

“I’m honored to be here. You’re an inspiration, I hope you know,” she tells the girls. “Because you really know your power. It’s about taking pride, and you take pride in yourself when you know your power.”

Ru has always said how doing drag is a political statement, something Trixie echoes in the clip from the episode.

Now that Pelosi has brought up politics, Ru couldn’t help to remind the queens—and the children at home—the power of voting. And he doesn’t let the congresswoman leave without sending her off with one of Ru’s signature lines.

Watch Pelosi kiki with the queens in the clip below.
 

RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars Season 3 airs Thursdays at 8/7c on VH1.

I write about drag queens. Dolly Parton once ruffled my hair and said I was "just the cutest thing ever."
