3. Alexisander The Great (Season 9 Episode 7)
Another day, another dollar (store dress).
A lot of people have been complaining that this is RuPaul’s Best Friend Race but they neglect to mention that
I have better shit on my hanger there is a feud brewing. Alexis Michelle vs. A Pleasing Aesthetic has been a war waging since 1993 – it all started when Alexis got read by the nurses for the length of her umbilical cord. Even Adore Delano’s garments hit the floor once in awhile!
So, this episodes starts with Alexis cheering for the return of Beverly Hills, 90210 star Tori Spelling. And just like Donna Martin, Alexis makes a series of bad decisions. Shes goes around the workroom and starts giving out some of her infamous Alexis Michelle Fashion Tips™.
While Alexis giving people bad advice is ironically funny, I do wonder if she is actually being strategic or not. Is Alexis luring the girls into a false sense of security and then sabotaging them by pressing their insecurities, or does she just like ugly clothes?
Nevertheless, I wonder just how influential Alexis Michelle truly is. She’s probably been in the girls’ ears for years!
Just like money is the root of all evil, Alexis is the root of all tragedy.
