September 17 is Serena ChaCha’s birthday . . . or at least I hope it is. I had a difficult time trying to verify that information.
Anyway, Virgo contestants are a dime-a-dozen on “RuPaul’s Drag Race.” Over the past month, I’ve declined to write about most of them because it just seemed to be too much. There wasn’t anything else to say that I hadn’t already said.
However, I feel differently about Serena ChaCha because she reminds me of a lot of my Virgo friends from when I was a kid. Just yesterday on this blog, I called myself a “know-it-all.” I’ve been that way for my entire life. For that reason, this Capricorn always liked to hang around with Virgo natives because they facilitated my trademark knowitallism with their own brand of knowitallism. We made a perfect pair of condescending jerks when we were together.
In that respect, I get Serena ChaCha because during her two-episode stint on “Drag Race,” she was an obnoxious know-it-all who made both the fans and her fellow contestants recoil in horror. I don’t believe that there has ever been a less-popular queen on the show. I know these things. I read books.
Me and my Virgo friends probably didn’t come off that bad when we were kids, but looking back at how we behaved back in the day makes me shudder. That makes me wonder if any Virgos out there see a little of themselves in Serena ChaCha. I see a little of my younger self in my fellow Capricorn, Silky Nutmeg Ganache. When I watch her season of “Drag Race,” all I can say to myself is “I’m glad I grew out of that phase.”
I know that “RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars Season 5” has already filmed, but it would interesting to see an “All Stars” season devoted entirely to the redemption of these horrible characters, like Serena ChaCha. I’d like to know what she has learned about herself since she left the show. Would she be a little less critical of her more-talented, more mature castmates, or would she keep up the shtick that rightfully earned her the title of the worst contestant in “Drag Race” herstory?
I’d love to find out . . .
