VH1 announced two bits of news regarding their 2017-2018 lineup, one which was expected and the other which was definitely not.
First, the news that is hardly news at all because I just assumed it was happening: RuPaul’s Drag Race, which moved to VH1 for its ninth season, is being renewed for a tenth, Deadline reports. Apparently the move to a new night(Fridays, ugh!) and a new channel worked out. Also, it’d be crazy not to renew this show, as RuPaul just won an Emmy last year and is a ray of sorely-needed light and love in these dark, horrible times we now live in.
To better process this news, please enjoy this clip of returned queen Cynthia Lee Fontaine explaining the origin of “cucu,” a phrase that she is somewhat desperately trying to make happen — almost as bad as Shangela’s “Hallelu!” but not quite.http://jezebel.com/vh1-will-give-us-a-tenth-season-of-rupauls-drag-race-an-1794316576
