Time to grab a parasols, ladies! The queens of "RuPaul's Drag Race" Season 8 are starting to throw some serious shade. Like "Oh my god, she's not even joking anymore" kind of shade. In this exclusive clip from Monday night's (April 25) extended 90 minute episode, "RuPaul Book Ball," Derrick Barry and Naomi Smalls quickly escalate from exchanging witty banter to tossing some serious digs.
Heat up the popcorn, and then butter and salt it, honey, because these girls are putting on a show!
With only 5 queens left in the competition, things would naturally start to get a little more fierce in the work room, but Barry and Smalls have it out for each other.
Smalls initially gives credit to Barry for being funny. "I have tough skin," she explains.
"It looks like it," Barry responds.
The work room goes silent. "The shit has hit the fan," Chi Chi DaVayne says in her confessional. "Derrick and Naomi are starting World War III."
However, that's just the beginning.
"The fun thing about Naomi is she only has one thing to say, and then she has to think for like hours to come up with another read," Barry continues. Then impersonating RuPaul's voice says,"I have one thing to say: 'I'm not that smart.'"
"I don't hate Derrick," Naomi clarifies. "I just hate his drag."
This is just a taste of what's to come in this super sized episode, so trust us when we say to keep that popcorn hot. These queens are holding nothing back.
“RuPaul’s Drag Race” airs Monday nights at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Logo.
