The RuPaul Show

The RuPaul Show Information

The RuPaul Show is an American talk/variety show that premiered on VH1 in 1996. Hosted by drag performer, RuPaul, the show had many famous musical guests and was notable as being one of the first national television programs in the United States hosted by an openly gay host. Former singer turned radio personality, Michelle Visage was the show's co-host.


The show features RuPaul interviewing various celebrity guest ranging from musicians, actors, and pop culture figures. In addition to interviews, the series also featured comedy skits, and comedic field reports. RuPaul would also perform his favorite songs along with two male dancers.

A major coup for Ru was having Diana Ross make a rare appearance on the show. Diana has always been a muse for RuPaul including lyrics from Diana's "It's My House" song from her album, "The Boss" in "House of Love" on her debut album, referencing Diana once again in the song and video in "Back to My Roots". Ru also covered Diana's co-penned "Work that Body" on her 1996. "Foxy Lady" album. In her first biography, Ru tells of meeting Diana on a flight. And then, Ru co-starred in the Diana Ross music video for her 1995 cover of "I Will Survive".
