RuPaul: Katie Price is a drag queen

Drag Race host RuPaul would love to go on Celebrity Big Brother.

The 54-year-old drag queen-and-actor teamed up with the former glamour model last week to promote his show, which will debut tonight. Their mutual love of big hair, make-up and outlandish costumes has given them a special connection according to the star.

“I feel like we’re kindred spirits – she’s a female drag queen,” he told British newspaper The Sun. “I love all female drag queens because they understand and get it.”

RuPaul first became aware of the 37-year-old during her appearance on Celebrity Big Brother earlier this year. The star appeared alongside fellow Drag Race star Michelle Visage and the host revealed how much he enjoyed watching them.

“I was so proud of Michelle because I’m so happy the rest of the world got to see what a lovely person she is, how smart and compassionate she is,” he added. “She was adopted as a kid and she has a heart. She is always looking to help the underdog and that’s why she’s a perfect judge on RuPaul’s Drag Race, because she understands being an outsider so well.”

RuPaul wouldn’t be opposed to entering the famous house himself. But he wouldn’t stand for any nonsense from his housemates.

“I’m Scorpio and sometimes you see my Scorpio come through on my show – sometimes I will sting people. Actually I’m more of an introvert masquerading as an extrovert, but if I’m pushed in a corner you will get stung – and you’ll get stung in a way where you probably won’t recover,” he said. “There were some nasty situations on CBB and I am a diplomat and I always want to come from a place of love. But sometimes you just have to break it down for a motherf**ker.”
