This may have been one of the most enjoyable reuinon shows I have ever watched. Maybe because there aren't a bunch of people that are screaming over each other.
Yes. I was surprised that I actually liked this episode. Other reunion shows could take a lesson from this. It was so well orchestrated, in a good way. The backdrop was somehow soothing. They were all refreshingly honest (sometimes a good thing, sometimes not.) I thought, 'I wish RuPaul's Drag Race Reunion' would've been more like this.' We might've actually gotten some truth from people, if they weren't competing to be heard, or for more applause than the others.
Thoughts-Shaye is normal sized, but looks big next to Amber. Sadly, Deyanni never lets her forget it. Shaye also anwsered that question like someone who is scared to admit her true feelings.
Dea-Ninny bugs the crap out of me. She seems proud of being mean "My mom was mean, and I turned out okay," and she is just abusive to her daughters. She seems to think her abusive behavior is cute, or worse, productive. The daughters were both crying - they're both being abused, really, because the one not being abused is being put in an impossible position. And both are afraid to lose their mother's love if they speak up. I couldn't believe Dea-Ninny actually called her daughter a Sasquatch again during the reunion. What a self-hating monster.
Somehwat like Shaye I was 'tall' (5'7 isn't tall but...) and my mom, her half sister and half nieces were all 5'3 tops and petite. I was no giant, and I wasn't chubby, even. But you'd think I was a wooly mammoth the way they talked and joked about and to me. A lot like The Ninny does with Shaye. It really left its mark. The Ninny really is an idiot.
