Over the past five years, RuPaul’s Drag Race has turned out a few phrases, including telling contestants, “Don’t f— it up” when it comes time to “lip-synch for… your… life.” But, after a public outcry, the show is dropping one of its signature gimmicks. “You’ve Got She-Mail,” a weekly pre-challenge video dispatch from host RuPaul, will no longer appear on future episodes of Drag Race after LGBTQ activists spoke out, deriding the slang term “she-male” as transphobic.
As the Huffington Post reports, the controversy emerged after a March 17 mini-challenge called “Female or She-Male” presented current Drag Race contestants with cropped photos and tasked them with guessing whether the person pictured was biologically born female or was a past Drag Racer. This sparked criticism over the use of the word “she-male,” which many members of the transgender community believe carries violent and/or discriminatory connotations.
As a result of the protest, Logo issued a statement “thank[ing] the community for sharing their concerns.” Further, the network announced that it has expunged the “She-Male” challenge from all platforms and will eliminate the “You’ve Got She-Mail” segment for future episodes. A representative for Logo added, “We did not intend to cause any offense, but in retrospect we realize that it was insensitive. We sincerely apologize.” READ FULL STORY

Logo reality hit RuPaul’s Drag Race already has one spin-off in RuPaul’s Drag U, but it’s getting yet another. Logo has struck a deal to launch All Stars: RuPaul’s Drag Race, EW has learned exclusively.
As you can probably surmise from the series’ title, past contestants — or, the case of Drag Race, past queens — will return and compete in what the network is calling a “battle royale.” Reality competition series such as America’s Next Top Model, Survivor, and Amazing Race have been doing all-star editions for years now.
Drag Race is currently airing its fourth season, and all told, there will be 46 past constants for producers to consider featuring in the new show. The cast won’t be announced for a few months, but one spot on the roster will be chosen by fans, who can log votes on the show’s Facebook page.
All Stars: RuPaul’s Drag Race will air six, one-hour episodes this fall on Logo.
