Join your “You Better WERK!” host MTG, our purrfectly catty fill-in co-host Amanda Gari (Late Night Rendezvous) and our featured guest, RuPaul’s Drag Race Superstar, “Shangela Laquifa Wadley” - the delightfully energetic D.J. Pierce.

MTG takes the reins again with this week’s Word Up! list and Amanda is feeling lucky. Our Shitz and Giggles (or Crap That Makes You Laugh) weird-but-true story, “Brother & Sister Kiss In Jail After Getting Arrested For Meth At Walmart” will have you thinking twice about having your stash on you in the check-out lane.

Our featured guest, DJ Pierce’s story starts out by sashaying back in time to that lil’ boy with a big personality and even bigger hair. A native of Paris, Texas (the second largest city of Paris in the world!), DJ grew up as an only child with a single Army vet mom, a hard-working aunt and the most lovable “church-every-Sunday” grandparents you can imagine. His grandpa was a pig & cattle farmer ranch hand but luckily DJ didn’t follow in the family biz. He spent his childhood singing in the church choir, kicking butt in Atari Pole Position and tracing dresses from the bridal section of his granny’s JCPenney catalog.

Chat Time! with our featured guest,  DJ Pierce reveals his impressive rise to fame on RuPaul’s Drag Race - Season 2 & 3 and his continued resilience and keen business sensibilities with building his own unique celebrity brand. Tune in to hear all about his many hosting, performing, and starring turns in comedy & drag events, film, television, stage, music videos and web series. DJ is literally everywhere you turn!

This week’s “JUST THE TIP” segment pays a well-deserved tribute to: “10 Famous Drag Queens-of Color” by BET.com - and you know that our featured guest has a prominent position on that list.
