Warning: Spoilers ahead!
RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars 7 kicked off with all the sass and glamour we could have ever asked for, and included not one, but two surprise celebrity appearances.
Starting with none other than super-model Naomi Campbell and a judging panel which featured Cameron Diaz, it’s safe to say the first episode started on a bang.
This series, the programme delivered the biggest twist of all, as all the queens (including our own The Vivienne) were fighting to be crowned again, having won at least one other Drag Race.
But just because they’d sashayed through before, didn’t mean they were prepared for the drama this series was yet to bring, as within the first 30 minutes of the series premiere, there were already tears with Shea Coulee sobbing her eyes out after an emotional compliment from icon Naomi.
Once all the other queens had shown Naomi’s their struts on the runway, Shea brought all she had, saying: ‘It is the most sickening, iconic thing to be walking on the runway in front of Naomi Campbell. Somebody whose walk I have studied, to try and emulate her goddess-like energy and this is my moment to show my teacher all that I’ve learned.’
And she did not disappoint, as Naomi left her in bits with an emotional compliment, saying: ‘You know what you’re doing, you have it controlled, you know how to slow it down, to bring it up.
‘It was perfection for me.’
With a compliment that big, of course Shea was left emotional, tearfully saying: ‘There aren’t enough words to describe the impact that you have had on me,’ before breaking down into tears.
‘I just really look up to you a lot and it was really amazing to get up on this runway and walk in front of you.’
Shea later added: ‘I’ve spent my whole life practicing for a moment like that!’
Fans were just as obsessed with the moment, taking to social media to share their emotions.
‘Shea Coulee and Naomi Campbell having their moment and Shea stumbling over her words I am sobbing,’ one viewer penned.
Another wrote: ‘This Naomi Shea moment has me crying like a baby.’
Others branded the emotional moment ‘wholesome,’ while one reflected on Shea’s ‘out-of-body’ moment.
They wrote: ‘Naomi looked SO proud of Shea when she was doing her runway walk. I know Shea was having an out-of-body moment when Naomi called her walk perfection.’
Elsewhere in the first episode, the queens were left shocked by a special guest making a surprise appearance.
But it was probably just the first in a series that’s bound to leave us with endless more twists along the way, and we can’t wait.
