RuPaul’s Drag Race creates a 1990s rap video called “Oh No She Betta Don’t.” Who has enough street credits to remain in the competition?

Back in the Werkroom after Gia’s elimination, Laganja is reflecting on how jealous she is of everyone else getting praise, especially Adore. Laganja doesn’t think Adore’s look is “as strong” as Laganja’s. Um, okay. This is not America’s Next Top Model, where that’s all that matters. Trinity interviews that Laganja is an extremely emotional person. That’s putting it mildly. She has a permanent sourpuss on.

Trinity shares with the rest of the group that she is HIV-positive, like she did last week in Untucked. The other queens are of course extremely supportive, and Bianca seems particularly touched. Darienne is getting extremely shady towards Miss Crème, accusing her of being too in love with herself. I think the real problem is Darienne is “too in love” with Miss Crème, and it isn’t reciprocated. Conspiracy theory!

The next day, the girls speculate about what the next challenge will be. This leads to Bianca and Adore talking about whose dresses and whose tits hit the floor. The SheMail quotes ten thousand rap songs and Ru enters in a pristine white suit to introduce this week’s mini-challenge. The library is OPEN! Reading is fundamental, y’all.

The reading challenge is always a delight, because we get to see which queens are quick-witted and which are…not so much. Highlights: Bianca telling Adore she got “ketchup” on her SATs; Adore telling Laganja to drop dead instead of death-drop; Joslyn saying Darienne sits reverse-cowgirl on the toilet so she can eat off a flat surface; Darienne telling Milk her beauty and fashion is on the side of her carton, under “Missing.” Lowlights: everything Laganja says; the awkward moment when Darienne tells Miss Crème she is full of herself like a Russian nesting doll. Thou doth protest too much, hunty.

Darienne is named the winner of the challenge, but I think Bianca should have taken that one. As the winner, she gets to choose her team for the main challenge, which is to write and perform a 1990s-style rap song and video called “Oh No She Betta Don’t” produced by DJ Shy Boy. Darienne chooses Laganja, Bianca, Adore and Courtney for her crew, leaving the others (Milk, Joslyn, Miss Crème, and Trinity). Miss Crème is shocked and dismayed that Darienne didn’t pick her. Hmm, maybe she is full of herself.
