Melissa McCarthy Says Her Career “Started” in Drag on ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’

Guess who crashed the drag party on RuPaul’s Drag Race? None other than the fabulous Melissa McCarthy herself! Yup, the 53-year-young Oscar-nominated actress popped up like a glittery unicorn in the latest episode of season 16, airing on a fabulous Friday night (February 16), delivering a message fit for queens.

Picture this: Melissa strutting in, draped in a black jacket adorned with more LGBTQIA+ patches than a rainbow quilt. With a mischievous glint in her eye, she quipped, “Anyone craving a Babybel?” before launching tiny cheese snacks at the queens like confetti at a pride parade.

Melissa wasn’t just there to toss cheese and sashay away. Oh no, she was on a mission, darling. Teaming up with Hollywood hotshot Adam Shankman, they became the dynamic duo of dance, coaching the queens for the Rusical challenge.

And just when you thought it couldn’t get any better, Melissa got all sentimental on us. With tears threatening her mascara, she poured her heart out to the queens, confessing her draggy origins. “I owe my career to drag, darlings! I was sneaking into drag shows before it was fashionable, and it gave me the guts to hit the stage. My first wig? A sassy red number called Miss Y!”

She showered the queens with love and empowerment, declaring, “You fierce creatures are the reason I can rock this red carpet. Keep slaying, keep shining, because what you do isn’t just fabulous, it’s downright necessary!”

Let’s not forget Melissa’s ongoing love affair with the LGBTQIA+ and drag scenes. She’s been waving the rainbow flag high, even letting her drag inspiration seep into her iconic portrayal of Ursula in The Little Mermaid. Now that’s what I call a drag-tastic friendship!
