Merry Christmas, Mary!
Halloween might have just ended hours ago, but it’s time to dust off that mistletoe because RuPaul and a gaggle of Drag Race queens are ready to sleigh the holiday season.
VH1 has announced its upcoming slate of festive programming, including a new original movie, The Bitch Who Stole Christmas. The synopsis of the “draggiest Christmas movie ever made” reads: “A workaholic big-city fashion journalist is sent to a Christmas-obsessed small town to dig up a story when she finds herself in the middle of cut-throat housewives, a high-stakes ’Winter Ball competition, and a sinister plot that could destroy Christmas fore-evah!”
The fashion journalist will be played by Krysta Rodriguez (who played Liza Minnelli in Netflix’s Halston), and Mama Ru will channel her best Wilhelmina Slater as Krysta’s editor who sends her to the Christmas-obsessed town.
The rest of the cast is stuffed with familiar faces from RuPaul’s Drag Race, including judges Michelle Visage, Carson Kressley, and Ross Mathews, and a Christmas list of queens, both naughty and nice: Ginger Minj, Brooke Lynn Hytes, Peppermint, Jan Sport, Jaymes Mansfield, Latrice Royale, Gottmik, Morgan McMichaels, Porkchop, Chad Michaels, Heidi N Closet, Kelly Mantle, Kimora Blac, Laganja Estranja, Manila Luzon, Mayhem Miller, Pandora Boxx, Raven, Rock M. Sakura, and Kylie Sonique Love. As well as Andy Ridings (The Other Two), Anna Maria Horsford, Kim Petras, and Charo! It’s a Cuchi Cuchi Christmas!
“There are 1000 Christmas movies this year, but only one with DRAG QUEENS! Christmas will never be the same!” said producer and World of Wonder co-founder Randy Barbato.
Just when you thought the yuletide couldn’t get gayer than the Holi-Slay Spectacular, The Bitch Who Stole Christmas—produced by MTV Entertainment Studios and World of Wonder—premieres Thursday, Dec 2 on VH1.
