For anyone who has spent any time on Leslie Jones Twitter, it’s very clear to see that the Saturday Night Live comedian *loves* herself some RuPaul’s Drag Race. During Monday night’s Emmys telecast, Jones got to share the stage with RuPaul as they presented Regina King the award for outstanding lead actress in a limited series.
The two upped the level of usual TV banter inherent in awards shows with a special Drag Race-themed tete-a-tete.
“Leslie and I have something in common,” RuPaul said.
“Yass! We both love the show RuPaul’s Drag Race,” Jones added. “That show is so fierce. That’s why we’ve given all the nominees a drag name!”
The names included Sir lady Alec Baldwin, Miss Johnson Leguizamo, Louie “The Tuck” Anderson, and Sandra Oh-No-She-Betta-Do!
Last month, Access Hollywood gave Jones a special gift when they aired a special message to the Ghostbusters actress from RuPaul herself.
Jones’ commentary on the show has been priceless.
