RuPaul's Drag Race season 4 premier flier

Celebrities and “RuPaul’s Drag Race” fans gathered for an exclusive party on Tuesday, January 24, 2012 at Eleven Bar & Nightclub in trendy West Hollywood to celebrate the launch of the 4th season of “RuPaul’s Drag Race.”  Guests were also able to preview episode 1 of the new season which will air on Monday, January 30, 2012 at 10/9c on Logo TV.  The show’s host RuPaul was in the house as well as show judge Santino Rice, season 4 guest judge Ross Matthews, season 4 contestants, Chris Donaghue (“Bad Sex”), Jai Rodriguez (co-executive producer “Bad Sex”/”Queer Eye for the Straight Guy”), Derek Saathoff (“The A-List: New York”), Austin Armacost (“The A-List: New York”), James Doyle (“The A-List: Dallas”), Ongina (“RuPaul’s Drag Race” season 1), and many more.

I hopped on a flight from Milwaukee on the day of the event to make sure I brought my readers the tea on this VIP party.  Below are photos and pink carpet interviews taken by Team Ifelicious- myself and photographer Vincent Sandoval.

Here are the photos taken on the pink carpet and inside the party (picasa link).  Captions are being updated, but feel free to comment with anyone that you can ID or any errors.  My only regret is not getting a photo of RuPaul when I interviewed him.  Ah well, I’ll get it next time!  😉

The A-List: New York’s Derek Saathoff and Ifelicious Face-Off

This is related to comments I made about Derek in the blog post “Ifelicious Awards and season 2 Commentary for The A-List: New York” where I grant him the “Mean Girl Award.”  As soon as we made eye contact at the event Derek insisted we have this discussion and that it is on camera.  You’ll have to watch to see how it all goes down.  Austin Armacost from “The A-List: New York” provides moral support, a few side comments, and lots of antics that I only noticed when I played the video back. LOL!  I did also pull him in for an interview that will get posted here.

The insanity continues… Interview with The A-List: New York’s Austin Armacost

Austin Armacost is funny as all get out, Derek Saathoff was fierce was always and James Doyle was handsome. LOVED that dress on you though!! Pink is definitely your color. 🙂
