Vanessa Williams has been part of the "RuPaul's Drag Race" family for a minute. Not only has she judged twice, but she competed in the celebrity version of the show and won—as did her daughter!
And now, the "Desperate Housewives" alum is expanding her role once more—as a judge in the global drag singing competition "Queen of the Universe," also produced by RuPaul and streaming on Paramount+.
"More is more! And when you talk about drag queens, they give you more," says Vanessa. "Not only do the queens have to compete in their drag looks and do the choreography and presentation," but they also have to sing. There's no lip-syncing, it's all singing live, and the talent is extraordinary."
Paramount+ and Rachael Ray are both owned by ViacomCBS.
