@Variety — @RuPaul On How #TheGoldenGirls Is As Good As It Was 30 Years Ago; #Podcast

Los Angeles, CA (Variety) — Emmy-winning “RuPaul's Drag Race” host and media superstar RuPaul is a trove of pop culture knowledge. “Everything I know I learned from TV,” he recently told Variety's “My Favorite Episode” podcast. “I love TV so much.”

RuPaul's current TV diet is a mix of new shows like the second season of “Big Little Lies,” and classics like “Mission Impossible.” But when asked to choose a favorite TV episode of all time, RuPaul immediately gravitated to one from “The Golden Girls.”

“The writing on 'The Golden Girls' is so brilliant,” he said. Added his longtime friend and “Drag Race” partner Michelle Visage: “The jokes still hold up. 'The Golden Girls,' even though some of the stuff would be considered off color today, it still makes you laugh every single time, just like 'All in the Family.'”

On this edition of the podcast, we talk to RuPaul and Visage about their favorite episodes of TV. RuPaul went classic, with a hysterical “Golden Girls” Season 2 episode where Dorothy discovers her date is actually a priest. And Michelle goes more recent, with a moving Season 2 episode of “Pose.” Listen below:
