The cheeky, larger-than-life drag queen and outrageous comic—"The Joan Rivers of the Drag World," (New York Times)—who isn’t afraid to shock or offend brings her trademark acerbic wit and sharp commentary to the page in an uproarious illustrated collection of advice.
When it comes to insult comics, Bianca Del Rio is in a class by herself. Fierce, funny, and fabulous—a would-be love child sired by John Waters and birthed by Joan Rivers—Bianca sandblasted her name in the annals of pop culture on RuPaul’s Drag Race. Thanks to her snarky frankness, impeccable comedic timing, and politically incorrect humor, she became the show’s breakout star, winning its sixth season.
In Blame It On Bianca Del Rio, Bianca shares her opinions loudly and proudly, offering raucous, hilarious, no-holds-barred commentary on the everyday annoyances, big and small, that color her world, and make it a living, albeit amusing, hell for anyone who inhabits it. A collection of biting advice filled with vibrant photos from Bianca’s twisted universe, Blame It On Bianca Del Rio will shock you and keep you laughing. But be warned: it is not for the faint of heart!
I enjoyed this book, but there were some parts that I found not as interesting as others. Bianca Del Rio is one of my favorite drag queens from RuPaul’s Drag Race. I have seen both of her movies and some of her sketches.
Her book was just as you would expect, crazy and funny. I am hoping that there will be a sequel but maybe in another format. The question and answer format worked okay for this one. A lot of the content seemed like it was recycled from her acts.
Overall this was a quick read and I enjoyed the book. If you enjoy drag queens, comedy, or memoirs this book is for you!
