Gay Atlanta again served cameo as the newest cast member of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” took a deep dive into queens who do hair, queens who do drag and queens who eat.

On Sunday, drag bar and restaurant Lips served as the latest gay nightspot to get face time on the show. That's were Claudia Jordan took her 90-year-old grandmother and mother for cocktails and a meal during their first visit to Atlanta.

“I thought it'd be fun to bring my mom and grandmom to a drag queen restaurant because I like to push my mom and grandmother outside of their normal comfort zone,” Jordan says. (Watch above)

Some “sweet and fruity” cocktails later, mom and grandma did just fine. Thankfully, they didn't trash Lips like the RHOA ladies did this other gay Atlanta restaurant.

A trio of queens made appearances in the scene – Evelyn Caldwell, Katy Cakes Taylor and Gia Sunflowers. Caldwell and Taylor greet Jordan and her family while Sunflowers waits on them. Earlier this year, Caldwell was among a trio of performers who “Bang Bang” into your heart, a video they shot at Lips.

Dinner and drinks at Lips followed Jordan's makeover by Derek J at the stylist's Buckhead salon. Because you're not a “Real Housewife” until this gay makes you fabulous. Just don't let him snatch your weave.
