RuPaul Is Headed To “Broad City”

"He's like godlike, I'm not even kidding."

Last year Abbi and Ilana welcomed Hillary Clinton to Broad City, and this season they scored another big name guest star: Supermodel of the World, RuPaul.

In the Summer TV Preview in the new issue of Entertainment Weekly, the magazine goes behind the scenes of the upcoming fourth season of the Comedy Central series with co-creators and co-stars, Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson, and they dish on their time on set with Mama Ru.

“He’s just so delicious,” said Glazer. “He’s like godlike, I’m not even kidding. Even him doing, like, normal sh*t in the show is just titillating. Fully f*cking titillating.”

EW also goes into the Broad City writers’ room where it’s revealed that RuPaul’s Drag Race is the TV show that gets quoted the most among the writers of the show:

A few months ago on his podcast, What’s the Tee with Michelle Visage, RuPaul talked about staying in the Williamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn while filming a series that he did not name at the timeā€”but fans guessed was Broad City since he is a fan.

This isn’t Ru’s first cameo on a TV show this year. Back in January he guest starred on an episode of 2 Broke Girls on CBS and he played Britt Robertson’s sassy neighbor on Netflix’s Girlboss.

No word on when RuPaul’s episode will air, but the fourth season of Broad City premieres August 23 on Comedy Central.

RuPaul’s Drag Race airs Fridays 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."
