RuPaul's Drag Race: All Stars - Are These Queens Your All-Stars? Update: Yes They Are!

Uh oh... Is there a leak in the RuPaul's Drag Race camp? Or a strategically placed (yet glamorous) red-herring?

While catching up on my Facebook newsfeed, I came across a post from a group called RuPaul's Drag Race: All Stars Fans that featured a picture of all twelve contestants who will appear on the show. While there is a lot to get excited for, the official announcement was scheduled to be revealed tomorrow after the season finale of RuPaul's Drag U. So before I give you reasons why this "leak" is a tad bit suspicious, here are your "alleged" queens of RuPaul's Drag Race: All Stars!

From Season One: Tammie Brown, Shannel, and Nina Flowers

From Season Two: Pandora Boxx, JuJubee, and Raven

From Season Three: Mimi Imfurst, Yara Sofia, Alexis Mateo,

After giving fans a serious case of blue balls by withholding the winner of RuPaul's Drag Race until last night's reunion episode, fans were gagging on their excitement as the final three -- Sharon Needles, Phi Phi O'Hara and Chad Michaels -- gathered in NYC for last night's live reveal as the clock struck 10 p.m. And when all was said and done, RuPaul chose Sharon Needles as The Next Drag Superstar!

I caught up with Miss. Needles (one of the most inventive, exciting and original queens to ever compete) after her crowning to find out what it means to win, what she'll do with the money and how Jared Leto factors in to her master plan!

Insider.com: Congratulations! What does it mean to you to have won RuPaul's Drag Race?

'RuPaul's Drag Race' all-star edition set for fall

RuPaul's reality show only has four seasons under its overly bedazzled belt, but Logo announced Monday that it's launching an all-star edition, "All Stars: RuPaul's Drag Race," reports EW.

The network is calling the second spinoff for the series (the first was "RuPaul's Drag U") a "battle royal," pitting previous seasons' contestants against each other. Producers have 46 past contestants to consider for the show's slots -- but fans get a say over one of them: Online voting on the show's Facebook page will decide a returning contestant (come on, Jujubee and Nina Flowers!), so you betta vote.

The series will consist of six one-hour episodes, airing this fall on Logo.

RuPaul's Drag Race: Details About Season 4

Ladies and ladyboys, we're only about six weeks away from the return of the greatest reality show on TV. Hold me.

Logo has announced RuPaul's Drag Race will be making its way down the catwalk once again on Monday, January 30th at 9:00 for a special 90 minute premiere. Following the premiere will be another edition of Untucked!, where you can learn what really went down when judges RuPaul, Michelle Visage, and Santino Rice weren't looking. The Interior Illusions Lounge is about to be crawling with liquor, shade, and liquor-induced shade, so watch your head for any flying heels.

Speaking of judges, RuPaul's Drag Race has plenty of talented guest judges coming through to give their perspective on the remaining queens, including greats in music (Natalie Cole), acting (Loretta Devine), sports (Rick Fox), make-up (Billy B), photography (Mike Ruiz), and writing (Dan Savage).

AfterElton Briefs: Fox News Can't See Gay Republicans, Elmo Interviews Nph, and George Clooney Talks Prop 8

Plus Least I Could Do's Rayne explains your virginity, the upcoming Ryan Reynolds/Bradley Cooper ab-off, and when That's Gay met Drag U.

Adam Shankman has a pool party for some of the Sytycd contestants.

The Exodus Ministries Trust Board is no longer eligible for tax-exempt status in New Zealand. Why not? It was removed because it "was not performing any public benefit as homosexuality was not a mental disorder and did not need curing." I can't help but feel the United States is becoming a third world country when it comes to human rights. George Clooney talked to E! last night after the Emmy Awards about many topics including the ruling on Prop 8: I think it was terrific, well, and it's now un-lifted again.These are the kinds of things that take a long long time to change...People will look back at this time in our history

TV @ the Movies: Thelma & Louise Hates Texas. Drag U & Marie Antoinette.

I get many emails asking me to write more frequently about the small screen so I figured I should cave if a tv series really excites me (like Mad Men) but on one condition: it has to reference the movies (or feature a beloved movie actress) or involve awardage. I've highlighted movie-adjacent TV before like pre-fame TV roles or unexpected actress moments. So henceforth, I'll package it in series form. You know how we do here at Tfe. If something I happen to catch on television references the movies, I'll feature it on Saturday mornings to thank it for doing so.

Last week on Friday Night Lights Becky fell asleep watching Thelma & Louise and that is... well, I can only suspend so much disbelief and you just don't fall asleep watching that movie. It's awesome -- top ten of the 90s level awesome. But Becky is my least favorite character so whatever.

Review: "Rupaul's Drag U" Brings Back the Queens

What exactly was it about the first two seasons of RuPaul's Drag Race that made for such incredibly watchable television?

I think it was three things: (1) some very likable contestants who gave you a real feel for the genuine artistry of drag; (2) the fact that the contestants took the competition very seriously, and as a result, you cared what happened to them; and (3) the ever-fascinating RuPaul, who has the personality of a freight train.

At least two of those three things are back in a Drag Race spin-off reality series, RuPaul's Drag U, premiering Monday, July 19th on Logo at 9 Pm/8C.

The gimmick of Drag U is that each week three women who are unhappy with their lives are invited to attend "Drag U," where three Drag Race drag queen favorites will act as "professors," giving the women a "drag" make-over. At the end of each episode, RuPaul and

Matt's Picks: July 19-22

RuPAUL's Drag U (Monday, 9/8c, Logo)

What a drag — not! This spin-off of the giddy campfest RuPaul's Drag Race is not your typical makeover show. Each week, three women of a certain type—tomboys, plus-sized gals, supermoms — tap into their inner drag queen, with the statuesque RuPaul as headmistress and Drag Race alums as style mentors and confidence boosters. Celeb judges will help crown each week's "valedictorian." Sashay away! ...

AfterElton Briefs: Hollywood's Gay Villains, The Most Gay-Friendly Sport, Professor Jujubee, and More!

Plus gay hip-hop stars talk "defying stereotypes," the orange juice lady is back, Eddie McClintock knows I exist, and why can't daytime soaps sustain the gay?

Happy Birthday to Jane Lynch, who turns 50 today.

Made in Brazil is reporting that Brazil is close to passing a law banning gay couples from adopting. "This new law aims to legally prohibit adoption by homosexual couples by stating that homosexual couples are not able to constitute a family, and that a child adopted by two homosexual parents is subject to embarrassment and harassment growing up." A poll of gay men and lesbians reveals that tennis is the most gay-friendly sport, with 65% saying it's the most welcoming to gay players and fans. I have to say I agree. There have been a few anti-gay bad apples, but overall tennis is a cut above. Now if only we could get a male player to come out.

AfterElton Briefs: Who Is Adam Lambert's Type, a "Sordid Lives" Marathon, and Get Ready for "RuPaul's Drag U"

Plus Freddie Mercury, a point about The Hard Times of Rj Berger, and at this point, Let's Just Be Friends, Phillip Morris. Adam Lambert on the Pride issue of L.A.'s Frontiers

In his interview with Frontiers, Adam Lambert was asked the very inappropriate question of "Who'd you rather, Ryan Seacrest or Simon Cowell?" Adam is a pro with inappropriate questions though. Ew. Neither one of them is my type at all. They’re both too old for me. I like pretty boys in their early-to-mid twenties. Make sure you print that.

Did you ever wonder what Broadway hunk Nick Adams looked like at 16-years-old? Now you can find out, and it looks like you can check out several other stars as well. In honor of Rue McClanahan, Logo TV plans a marathon of Sordid Lives: The Series Sunday night, 8pm-2am. Fans are encouraged to tweet their favorite Rue memories to @LogoTV,

RuPaul's Drag Race renewed as second-season finale leads to absurd charges of racism

RuPaul's Drag Race ended its second season this week, as RuPaul chose Tyra Sanchez, aka James Moss, as the winner over Raven, aka David Petruschin, the runner-up, a controversial decision that has caused some fans to moronically accuse RuPaul of racism. The finale was the network's most-watched show ever, with 633,000 viewers. Because of that, the series has been renewed, as has its behind-the-scenes show Untucked, while an already-announced spin-off, RuPaul's Drag U, airs this
