Guest Judges Announced for RuPaul's Drag Race Season 3! Plus, a Casting Special & "Untucked" Returns. Halleloo!

Top row: Vanessa Williams! Amber Rose! Cheryl Tiegs! Middle Row: Susan Powter! Latoya Jackson! Chloe Sevigny! Bottom Row: Lily Tomlin! Jody Watley! Fantasia!

As you probably know, Season 3 of RuPaul’s Drag Race is Naomi-Campbell-walking its way to you on Monday, January 24th. But there’s now more news about all that gets unveiled when RuPaul opens her box to you for another season of drag, dreams, drama and decadence.

First, the big premiere night is gonna kick off with a casting special (What is this? American Idol? Oh wait… Yes, it sort of is, thanks.) at 9pm. You’ll see home video submissions from queens who didn’t quite make the cut, and from those who did. It’s a going to be a happy hot mess!

Then at 10pm ET comes the big 90-minute premiere episode, and then right after at 11:30pm, fasten your spanks because the behind-the-scenes series, Untucked is gonna escort you back into the Interior Illusions lounge for some Absolut vodka-swilling (hic!) and lots of tantrums, tears, merriment, accusations, cattiness and whacked-out draggedy drama.

But my favorite news… Check out the divas pictured above and listed after the jump. The roster of guest judges this season is sickening. Cheryl Tiegs? Vanessa Williams? Chloe Sevigny? Lily Freakin’ Tomlin??? I die.

And just watch a Absolut First Look video preview of the season right up in here!!!!
