Vanessa Williams Talks Drag Queens on 'Lopez Tonight'While serving as a guest judge on 'RuPaul's Drag Race,' Vanessa Williams watched the show's contestants prep for competition on the other side of a two-way mirror.

One drag queen "had a tuck that was unbelievable," she said on 'Lopez Tonight' (weeknights, 12AM ET on TBS). "I couldn't find out where the stuff was."

"Where does it go, on vacation?" joked George Lopez. She replied, "I have no idea! All I saw was some silver gaffer's tape, and it was gone. Gone."

Vanessa Williams Treated to a Lip-Synch Drag Queen Fight on 'RuPaul's Drag Race' (VIDEO)

'RuPaul's Drag Race'It was all about aggressive choreography on 'RuPaul's Drag Race' (Mon., 9PM on Logo). With Vanessa Williams on hand, the challenge was to perform a knock-out routine lip-synching to her song 'The Right Stuff.'

Two contestants took RuPaul's edict to "lip-synch for you life" perhaps a little to literally. It was a cat-fight on the catwalk. At times it looked like it was choreographed and intentional, but at others it looked as if the pair was genuinely trying to sabotage one another.

All sense of grace was gone as one or the other would flop to the ground and then try to regain their composure and their feet.

Start Your Engines: RuPaul Previews Season Three of 'RuPaul's Drag Race'

RuPaul, RuPaul's Drag Race season 3The search for America's next drag superstar is about to begin on Logo. 'RuPaul's Drag Race' kicks up its heels and kicks off its third season tonight at 10PM ET with a 90-minute premiere. TV Squad caught up with RuPaul by phone to talk about the new season and found there's more to the world's most famous drag queen than meets the eye.

I live in New York City in the East Village, and I saw you at Wigstock in Tompkins Square Park in the early '90s before you were really famous. You were selling your T-shirts and I wanted to talk to you, but I was too shy. Every time I see you on TV, I regret not going up to you and saying hello back then and telling you how great I thought you were.
That's so kind of you, but I hope that that's taught you a lesson in your life -- the shy story line doesn't work.

You're right. Shy doesn't get you anywhere. If I saw you now, I would approach you. I had just moved to New York back then, and I wasn't as bold as I am now.
It's time and experience. On the show, we go through that with the girls because a lot of times they're saying, "Well, the next time I'll be better," and I'm like, "Kiddo, this is it. This is your moment right here." Time taught me how to seize the moment and know when the universe is giving me a stage direction, and also to override the built-in saboteur that's standard equipment with my machine.

RuPaul's Drag RaceYou've got questions? I've got answers. I'm The Show Girl!

This week, I talk to the Queen of the Internet, Cindy Margolis, and the Queen of ... well, queens, RuPaul. Both ladies are working it on reality TV -- the '90s pinup on dating show 'Seducing Cindy,' and the '90s 'Supermodel' songstress on season 2 of 'RuPaul's Drag Race.' Amazing.

To bring the show back to reality a bit, I also dig in to 'Lost.' (Hey -- I didn't say which reality.) If you haven't heard, we've got a brand spankin' new weekly show dedicated to the addictive, obsessive show I call my #1 favorite. And we're taking fan questions starting ... now.

Want more? Email me TV questions at TheTVShowGirl@aol.com -- please put INSTANT DHARMA in the subject line for all 'Lost' questions -- and I'll try to give you answers on the shows. -- By Maggie Furlong

The L Word - ShaneIt occurred to me recently that there are more gay and lesbian characters on TV right now than ever before. That's pretty cool.

And they run the gamut from The L Word 's edgy Shane (pictured) to Desperate Housewives' funny Bob to Entourage's loyal Lloyd, who takes more verbal abuse from Ari Gold than anyone should ever be allowed to take.

See if you agree with my list of top gay characters on TV right now, and feel free to add your own in the comments. I look forward to hearing your thoughts.
