RuPaul's Drag Race Finale Video Interview & Raja's Words to Live By: "Model Through It!"

The hat is very “Carrie,” but my pumps were very Carrie Bradshaw, I swear!


Whoa. The “It Gets Better” Campaign just got some competition. RuPaul’s Drag Race’s Raja has a new mantra that I think we can all get into. When life gets bitchy or downright unpleasant, just thrust back your shoulders, assume a haughty stride and “MODEL THROUGH IT.”

Yes, Jon and I learned valuable insight and much more in last night’s interview with Raja, which was streamed live at during the big RuPaul’s Drag Race finale. But our new queen also had other pearls of wisdom to share about groping the pit crew hotties, her experience on Drag Race, surviving life as a gawky gay teen and… We also learn were she got her legendary runway skills.

And when she’s ask to play “F**k, Marry, Kill” with her fellow “Heathers” as fodder… It gets dishy! ENJOY!

And our big winner also has a little something else to say to all the fans out there…
