Barbra Streisand

Barbra Streisand "He Touched Me"

Camp Queen Of The Week

Our first Camp Queen of the Week is the awesome Varla Jean Merman.

She was recently on Bravo's 'Project Runway' for the drag queen challenge.

Visit her great website to find out more about this great entertainer.

Varla Jean Merman 'Dark Lady'

Varla Jean Merman 'Jew Don't Know My Name'


Our Diva of the Week is Melania.

I first meet Melania a few years ago at the Miss North Carolina USofA pageant, where she placed as 1st Alternate. She is such a sweet person.

Last year was her first time at Miss Continental. She won preliminary evening gown and made the top 10.

She also competed at Miss International Queen in Thailand. She made the top 10 and won Most Beautiful.

Miss Continental 2009 Preliminary Night

Miss Continental 1999 Tommie Ross

Miss Continental 1991 Amber Richards

Miss Continental 1986 Tandi Andrews

Here is the first update :

Tulsi :
Talent - 'I Wanna Be A Rockette' from the Broadway play 'A Chorus Line'. She had back up dancers as the Rockettes. I have always thought that this would be a great talent to do.

Nysha Lopez :
Swimsuit : Very fish
Talent : Wizard of Oz then went into Fashionista. I think Fashionista has been overdone in pageants.

Sasha Colby:
Talent : Did a dance number. Very good. She has been one of the best contestants tonight. She should make top 10.

Tamisha Iman :
Talent : She did 'Mr. Melody'. It has been reported that it was ok. Tamisha is a former Miss Gay USofA

Amy Demilo:
Talent : 'Gypsey Rose Lee'. Amy's performance tonight has been ok, nothing great.

Chantel Demarco :
She has done very good tonight. She should make top 10.


Jasmine Bonet :

Evening Gown : Solid red fabric beaded gown

Swimsuit : Basic black. Jasmine usually does very well in swimsuit.

Talent : Diana Ross mix. Screen on stage has photos of Jasmine from her years at Miss Continental. Necole Luv Dupree did a Diana Ross & The Supremes talent last year and won. I am not sure how the judges may view such a similar talent. Who knows ?

Competiton is still going on, but here are my picks for Top 10 tomorrow :

Jasmine Bonet

Sasha Colby


Tamisha Iman

Kathryn Cole

Amy Demilo

Naysha Lopez

Titiana Braxton

Michelle Fighter

Kylie Crawford

This is just my guess. There could be a surpirse or two.

The pageant is being held at Park West in Chicago, Illinois. Miss Continental has one preliminary night, which is tonight. Tomorrow night will be the final night when the top 10 is announced. The final night pageant is supposed to start at 8 pm. CST.

Girls Gone Wild

Two former Miss Gay America's have now been banned by the Miss Gay American Organization for their conduct at the Miss Gay North Carolina America pageant, which was held this past weekend in Charlotte, NC.

Miss Gay America 1986 Lauren Colby and Miss Gay America 1996 Kerri Nichols will not be allowed at attend, entertain or judge any Miss Gay America prelims for at least one year.

It is believed that they engaged in way to many 'party favors' and made a fool of themselves at the pageant.

Girls it is way past time to grow up.

Winner - Vitzi Vahnu
1st Alternate - The Minx
2nd Alternate - Alexandria Martin

Pageant Recap Top 3 :

Presentation: "Out of the Toy Box"
* Vitzi (who is openly Jewish, lol) came out in gold roller skates dressed as a big blue dreidel
* The Minx drove out in a Barbie Dream car Power Wheels
* Alexandria Martin was a spin off of the "Betsy Wetsy" and "Chatty Kathy" doll... the "Alexandria Martin Fartin" doll

Swim Suit:
* Vitzi came out and did a little skit as a typical old jewish woman in Boca. Big hat, glasses, gold and leopard print with sequin swimsuit... she kept schleping things on stage and was gossiping about people... VERY FUNNY
* The Minx had a video of her in a swimming pool doing synchronized swimming a la Esther Williams. The video screen came up and she was in a kiddie pool and did a synch routhine on stage.
* Alexandria looked SICK in a black swimsuit with yellow lane lines on it, with a ponytail down past her :censored:.... 2 boys had signs that said dangerous curves ahead and slippery when wet, and the "highway" she had on stage was then watered down and used as a slip n slide... funny.

* Vitzi rewrote the lyrics to "Popular" from Wicked and satirized Darcel Stevens, Armani, the owners of the pageant and owners of the bar.... VERY FUNNY
* The Minx did Mommie Dearest meets ABBA in a cream mask with backup dancers all in cream masks and with wire hangers, and she kept beating the hell out of little Christina!
* Alexandria did a whole Miss Piggy talent and ended with everyone "snacksercizing"

* Vitzi had a gown made out of bagels and had a tub of cream cheese in her updo. As she modeled, she took a bagel off the gown, put cream cheese on it and ate it.
* The Minx was the chandeleir from Phantom of the Opera. As she modeled, someone came and pulgged an extension cord into her hair and it lit up. The part in the music where the chandeleir crashes, she fell. FUNNY
* Alexandria had a gown made of koosh balls. All the koosh balls lit up. ABSOLUTELY STUNNING.

#3 Amanda's gown was lovely, but cat tails do not go over very well in the America system.
#4 Victoria's gown was yes the same she wore at America last year. The fit was not good as well as she had some makeup issues tonight.
#5 Angela's gown was a lovely gown.
Talent Recap :
#2 Best Little Whore House and Shana had a breast plate of Dolly Death. Nice job!
#3. Cotton Club medly. Started out very good, then it just kinda got lost. The moves were good, but the energy died.
#4 Dreamgirls. It was what it was. The coat did come apart early and the fit was not good when she removed the coat.
#5. Beyonce, very dirty as in not clean.
