RuPaul Lands New Daytime Talk Show

Published: Tuesday 2nd Apr 2019 by Rashad

It’s been over 20 years since RuPaul (born RuPaul Charles) broke ground and barriers with his VH1 talk show, but now the 58-year-old is about to do it again – this time on FOX.

More inside:

With the 1996 premiere of his first talk show, VH1’s ‘The RuPaul Show,’ Charles became the first openly gay host of a national television program in the United States.

Now, after a two decade absence from the format (despite continuing a successful, Emmy-awarded relationship with VH1 courtesy of the hit show ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’), Ru’s highly anticipated return to daytime talk – simply titled ‘Rupaul’ – will premiere this summer.

Beginning a limited three week test run on June 10, the eponymous venture will be broadcast on select FOX stations across the country.

“Now more than ever before we need a global voice that will help everyday people navigate this unique time in history,” Charles said in a statement. “Not only do I want to be a part of that conversation, I want to help facilitate it.”

    I’m here for it…Move over, Wendell Williams!!!

      As if. He’ll be safe, watered down and boring. This is FOX, remember. Not to mention, he is like Oprah. Only connects with White people. It may last a few seasons. Tyra is who the talkshow circuit needs. She was underrated and underappreciated.

      • April 3, 2019

        Right! I loved the Tyra Banks show. It had energy & it was entertaining.

      • SMH April 3, 2019

        ALL OF THIS. I was so angry at Tyra for walking away from her show and leaving the door open for trash like Wendy Williams to come in. And you’re right, RuPaul won’t be any better. He’s made it perfectly clear that he’s part of the gay white man’s world now. Tyra definitely needs to come back.

    I cannot stand RuPaul! He has absolutely no connection to the black community & I doubt very seriously that he even identifies as a black man. He is DISGUSTING & an utter disappointment to our community & generation at large.

    • Jay April 3, 2019

      I agree he does not appeal to the black community at all…

    • Jasmine April 3, 2019

      I agree! He is an Uncle Tom and I find his rare moments when he ‘acts black’ as racist and stereotypically degrading to blacks.

      On the other hand, I do not think he was treated nicely by straight blacks in the 90s. I remember many black shows like Martin and entertainers like Lil Kim making fun of him. I can see why he married a white man and lives a life surrounded by white people. At least he feels ‘loved’ or ‘supported’ by them. I wonder if black gays look up to him. I doubt it because he is an Uncle Tom who won’t do a thing for blacks (unless he is forced to by ratings or PR pressure).

        Lil Kim made fun of repaul? When

    • aj April 3, 2019

      Hes never claimed to stand up for the black community. Hes representing intersectional minorities.

      But anyway it’s a talk show- light entertainment. If you want news go to Fox or ABC

    Great! So now we have to see drag queens in the day time and at night….???

    • aj April 3, 2019

      You dont have to see anything. If you dont wanna see it dont watch it

    I will say the LGBT community is doing things that the BLACK community should be doing like sticking together & getting things done. They go hard for their ‘community’ and it shows. We should take notes!

  6. I HeATE WHYYYTE n Blaccck BITCHEZZ BOTH NOT SHT April 3, 2019

    He should thank Wendy, they said get a lookalike… Rupaul showed up, yes fabulous darling fabulous..

  7. Clarkson April 3, 2019

    Ru doesn’t appeal to the black community cause he is not ghetto and trashy. Ru is pure class that’s why he is excelling with his show, winning Emmy after Emmy. Besides the black community is homophobic as hell.

    If Ellen DeGeneres was black the black community will never support her. The black community hates women and gays.

    • Paulo April 3, 2019

      Get a life, loser

    • Oh plz April 3, 2019

      Only uneducated trash make generalizations.

    • Fancy BISH April 3, 2019

      Mama June is the dirty little secret white people are scared to admit! The majority of white people look more like Mama June in America than they do Jennifer Aniston lmaoooooo rofl ? Y’all try to hide Honey Boo Boo and act like y’all look like Jennifer Aniston while the movie is running! But the mirror tells NO LIES ? Go listen to RuPaul’s Back To My Roots and watch the Supermodel (You Better Work) video and get your life! RuPaul loves being black and has never hid his past like MANY white people try to do on the daily! When ya’ll pull out those family photo albums ya’ll see Mama June (lol) and certain unsavory uncles and great grandfathers who were coward Klansmen! Don’t make me go there #IAlreadyDid ? #MamaJune ?And you sound dumb AF saying the black community hates women and gays when there are gay black women….you DO know that right? ? You tried it….again! And one more thing…Mama June, Mama June, Mama June, Mama June…June, June, June…you better WORK! ?

        Sweetie, that was over 20 years ago, he does not love being black. And the fact that drag race has been on for 10 years with only 3 black winners, a black person finally wins All Stars but still has to share it with a white girl, and when he won his Emmy and was joined onstage by the entire crew of drag race and there wasn’t a single person of color besides him on that stage can attest to that. RuPaul sold both his soul and his black card to go mainstream. That’s not self love.

      • Paulo April 3, 2019

        @SMH in all fairness Ru has become ‘hostage’ of the toxic white pride self-hating gay fandom. Monet SLAYED the finale but you know hell would’ve broken loose if Trinity wasn’t crowned as well

    • SMH April 3, 2019

      No dear, he’s excelling because he sold his soul and his black card to go mainstream. That is anything but class.

    • Fancy BISH April 3, 2019

      If RuPaul was white he wouldn’t have the success that he has now! He would be just another other! Marinate on THAT. ?
