Get ready for Bianca Del Rio with a dozen of her best one-liners

Add this share

What becomes a legend? Well, in this case, it’s more big honking nose than big honking diamonds. Sure, there’s glamour and beauty, but it’s more defiance than elegance, more sass than class. Because when Bianca Del Rio hits Atlanta on her “Blame It On Bianca” tour Friday night, RuPaul’s queen of mean will hold zero punches.

The one-night-only performance will solidify an answer to the burning question: Sarcasm and hilarity are what really becomes a legend, and they’ll be on full display on March 9 at Variety Playhouse. So will the insult comic and costumes that the queen, nee Roy Haylock, is known for.

Anticipation for the show got us gathered in a gay gaggle recently trying to remember all of this week's Q Cover Girl and Season 6 Drag Race winner’s best lines. The session went on so long, we decided that the best way to preview the show would be to highlight just some of our favorite Del Rio lines. Which ones would you add?

Bianca Del Rio plays Variety Playhouse, 1099 Euclid Ave. NE, on March 9, 8 p.m..

“It looks like she went into Claire’s Boutique, fell on a sale rack and said ‘I’ll take it!’”

“Beauty fades. Dumb is forever.”

“This is Not the Sisters of the Traveling Panty Hose.”

“I have a large dick, no credit, and a tendency to take things that don't belong to me”

“Not today, Satan! Not today.”

“She’s so gay, her asshole has a lisp.”

“She’s rotted and hateful, and I worship her!”

“She’s like that friend you wanted in college, but couldn’t be because she never finished high school.”

“I am Clown Realness.”

“Wide & Sassy. That was my name in prison.”

“That bitch is a lot like Fox News: You can’t believe it, but it’s entertaining!”

“Calm down, Beyonce.”
