RuPaul will host a new daytime talk show

Call Me Ellen

Get ready to see more RuPaul. Not content with being the most prolific drag show host in the world, the 57-year-old TV personality will be venturing into talk shows again.

He has already previously hosted The RuPaul Show in the 90s, which is when he first shot to fame. Now, after a decade of RuPaul’s Drag Race, he’s set to start a new show in autumn next year with the same production team behind Ellen DeGeneres’ talk show and The Real.

Ru will play host to celebrity interviews, beauty and glam tips, pop culture tidbits and more in front of a live audience. Michelle Visage, who previously co-hosted for his VH1 talk show back in the day, is also expected to play a major role.

The larger-than-life host also has other TV projects in the works. In May it was revealed that he will star in, write, and executive produce a Netflix comedy entitled AJ and the Queen. Hulu is also developing Queen a dramatised series based on his life and journey to becoming a global LGBT icon.
