'RuPaul's Drag Race': 10 Queens Who Need to Guest-Judge

28 January 2015 1:14 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"RuPaul's Drag Race" is coming back March 2 with a judging panel consisting of veterans RuPaul and Michelle Visage and newcomers Carson Kressley and Ross Mathews. Exciting! Personally I will miss Santino Rice's snarly angst, but he's had a good run. More exciting: The announced guest judges this season are pretty thrilling. Kathy Griffin is back along with Olivia Newton-John, Demi Lovato, Ariana Grande, and John Waters. Pretty damn smashing. But before season seven gets under way, let's make sure to proclaim which celebrities Still need to join RuPaul and criticize the fabulous dames of his runway.  1. Tim Gunn Here's my problem with Tim Gunn on "Project Runway": I truly believe he is holding back. He comes from a distinguished academic background and taught at Parsons for years. He knows biting, incisive criticism. Not that he goes easy on "Project Runway" contestants, but he could certainly be grimmer and more subversive. »

7 January 2015 2:31 PM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

We have our housemates! 14 stupid brave celebrities walked through the doors of the Celebrity Big Brother compound tonight to face a twisted fairytale like no other.

But who are these courageous souls who have shunned spa days and champers for a dirty bath and chickpeas? And do you know any of them? Well, we've got all the details of the gang, so read on for everything you need to know...

Alexander O'Neal

Age: 61

Give me the basics. Alexander is an American R&B singer probably best known for his hit 'Criticise', which reached number four in the UK charts in 1987.

Why is he going in the house? For one thing, he likes "challenges", apparently. Also, he loves us Brits: "Britain pretty much told the rest of the world who Alexander O'Neal was before anybody really knew." (He speaks about himself in the third person quite regularly, it seems.) Also: "It's a test for me, »
