[ed. note: We’ve been a little too choked up to talk about the show since the passing of our girl Tammie Brown last week. But we’re trying to hold it together.]
The queens were asked to “channel your inner Oprah” and perform several TV broadcasting tasks, like reading from a teleprompter, shilling a product and interviewing surprise guests Tori and Dean in a talk show format. (We fucking love that Ru made them all try to pronounce “Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.”)
We won’t spoil it for you, and you can watch the rest of the episode here. Following this challenge, the 7 remaining contestants did runway walks in looks of their own choosing, and we’ll just say that Las Vegas showgirl Shannel scares the shit out of us in a very Gina-Gershon-on-acid kind of way. Enjoy.
CORRECTION: The Sword mistakenly referred to Tori’s husband as Dean Monroe, who is a British porn star, instead of by his correct name, Dean McDermott. Sorry, we have porn on the brain…
