Seattle starlet Jinkx Monsoon made her RuPaul's Drag Race debut on Monday night and was totally beguiling.
Her primary achievement in episode 1: Coming out as narcoleptic. As Jinkx explained it (after being caught dozing on a sofa), she refuses to be ashamed of her narcolepsy and is OUT AND PROUD.
After the episode, I sent the following email to Seattle's premiere Jinkx Monsoon historian Adrian Ryan:
Is Jinkx Monsoon a narcoleptic, is Jerick Hofer a narcoleptic, or neither? (My secret dream is that he's faking it as a hilarious character trait for Jinkx, but let me know what you know.)
oh hell no, he's totes faking it. it cracks me up.
I agree. What a way to subvert the drama of RuPaul's Drag Race and the drag world in general: Throw in a queen who may fall asleep at any moment. It's genius. GO JINKX!
(And congratulations on being named Dlisted's Hot Slut of the Day!)
A man who pretended to be the online girlfriend of the US college footballer Manti Te'o for more than a year, is said to have fallen "deeply, romantically in love" with the star.
In an interview with the Dr Phil show, hoaxer Ronaiah Tuiasosopo said he was "confused" about his sexuality following the two-year relationship with Te'o. He had convinced the Notre Dame linebacker that he was Lennay Kekua, whom he characterised as a 20-something woman who narrowly survived a car crash only to later die of leukemia.
