The famous "Supermodel of the World" brought to VH1 the RuPaul Varity Show. In this day & age it is extremely hard to pull-off a variety show. RuPaul aka "Foxy Lady" managed to do it & do it with style! In tradition of other great variety shows like Carol Burnett, 3 Girls 3, The Jacksons, Dolly Parton,& Cher...The Rupaul Show had many big guest stars that ranged from Diana Ross to Patti Labell & even Menudo. RuPaul's energetic comedy, style, & gracefulness is what made this show a "Snapshot." The show normally ended with Ru & guest doing a great duet. The show should have lasted longer but in the world of music television you are guaranteed one thing...here today, gone today...which is sad because Rupaul who makes many women look at themselves & second guess what they look like, as well as acts, sings, dances, & entertains in many other ways is one sizzling HOT sexy momma! If the show ever repeats, it is a MUST SEE, even if its to see what Ru is wearing! Its an eye full of STUNNING looks & beauty that not many can't match!
