|RuPaul as “Queen Chante” on The Simpsons|
You know you’ve arrived at the pinnacle of pop culture when you finally get that call to guest star on an episode of the long-running animated FOX series, The Simpsons.
This Sunday, Emmy Award-winner RuPaul makes his animated debut on the long running animated series as “Queen Chante.”
FOX released a teaser video of the upcoming episode along with some clues about the storyline.
From what we can tell, Marge makes yet another attempt at finding a successful career, this time as a Tupperware salesperson.
But to get an edge on her competition, Marge’s friend Julio suggests selling in drag. Apparently, drag queens sell the most Tupperware – who knew?
Showrunner Al Jean told Entertainment Weekly in a recent interview, “This is true – most successful Tupperware sellers are drag queens.”
Dang, queens are good at everything!
And somewhere in the mix, Homer makes HIS drag debut complete with full-on runway strut adorned in a blond wig and black dress.
How the animated series has gone 30 seasons without Homer in drag almost boggles the mind.
Not only do we get Mama Ru in the drag-tastic episode, but RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 3 champ, Raja, makes a cameo as herself as well.
In an Instagram post, Raja shared the cartoon image writing, “The Simpsons was a huge part of my childhood, being asked to be on an episode was surreal and mind blowing, to say the least.”
Watch the teaser below. Mama Ru’s “Queen Chante” will come to slay this Sunday at 8/7c on FOX.
View this post on InstagramHere she is everyone! I am so proud to announce my cameo appearance on #theSimpsons ! I cant describe how honored I am to have been asked to do this episode airing November 18, with special guest @rupaulofficial . The best part is…I play myself in a scene with Homer. I’ll never forget crying my eyes out, as rain came pouring down on the sidewalk outside the recording studio. Tears of joy. The Simpsons was a huge part of my childhood, being asked to be on an episode was surreal and mind blowing, to say the least. ❤️A post shared by Sutan RAJA (@sutanamrull) on Oct 20, 2018 at 10:47am PDT
