Oooh, a Clip from Michelle Visage's New Show "Hooker Makeover"

by Max Kessler


World of Wonder -- makers of RuPaul's Drag Race and reality TV trailblazers  -- keep churning out things we would gladly watch over and over. The latest is a makeover show starring Drag Race judge and former Seduction member Michelle Visage called "Michelle Visage's Hooker Makeover." The show follows Visage as she coaxes an unsuspecting passerby into a makeover and does her damnedest to make her look like a Hollywood Boulevard hooker. After her makeover, the makeoveree heads out into the street and try to get cars to honk at her for money. Obviously this all could be construed as horribly offensive, where 'tackiness' and something as complex as sex working are carelessly conflated in the name of carefree campy fun, but Visage, per a press release, says she sees it differently: "Tacky is the new black. There's a reason why this is the world's oldest profession, and EVERYBODY needs some hooker-tastic love every now and again. It gives women a sense of confidence that no Louboutin ever could." Just as RuPaul's Drag Race is a tounge-in-cheek answer to America's Next Top Model, here we get a new take on the stale format of the makeover and you really can't look away. Check it out above.
