Nancy Pelosi Fired Up and ‘Fabulous’ as Judge on ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars’

House Minority Leader is said to be fan of the show

In case you missed it, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi will be guest judging on “RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars” this season.

The reality competition regularly features guest judges to help evaluate the queens each week, but the guests typically hail from the world of music or entertainment. This season will feature Pelosi, alongside Vanessa Hudgens, Tituss Burgess, Kristin Chenoweth, Shay Mitchell and others.

Pelosi’s spokesperson told The Washington Post that the congresswoman already taped her appearance and had a “fabulous” time doing so. She’s also a fan of the show, according to WaPo, which pointed out that Pelosi is hardly seen without a pair of heels on her feet.

But its her ties to the LGBTQ community in her California district, which includes San Francisco, that really got her fired up to appear on the show, according to Pelosi’s rep (via WaPo), “to show solidarity in the face of what she calls attacks against LGBT people by the Trump administration.”

This year’s “All Stars” season of “Drag Race” will star returning fan-favorites Aja (Season 9), BenDeLaCreme (Season 6), Chi Chi DeVayne (Season 8), Kennedy Davenport (Season 7), Milk (Season 6), Morgan McMichaels (Season 2), Shangela (Seasons 2 & 3), Thorgy Thor (Season 8) and Trixie Mattel (Season 7) as they return to compete for the crown once again.

“RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars” Season 3 premieres Thursday, Jan. 25 at 8/7c on VH1.
