A self-confessed fan of the popular show Drag Race Philippines which was successfully launched in the country last August, actress Maricel Soriano chose to have some fun and reveal her unique drag queen persona in her latest social media posts. In her latest vlog post titled “Pa Drag Race Den,” she wrote, “Dahil hindi pa ko nakaka-get over sa @dragraceph at excited na ko for @dragdenph , gumawa muna ko ng sarili ko. Mahulaan nyo kaya kung sinong Queens form these shows ang kasama ko? Etching!”
In an Instagram post, the Diamond Star also celebrated another milestone in her vlogging journey this month. She wrote, “Maraming maraming salamat po sa 100k subscribers ko sa YouTube! 💖
“Sana ma-enjoy nyo ang pinaghirapan naming vlog to celebrate this milestone.
“Nakakaloka, 9 hours of shoot in drag! Pero masayang masaya ko to do this kasama ang anak-anakan kong si @xilhouete
“Sino kaya ang tatanghaling ULTIMATE PINAY DRAG MOTHER?”
In the almost 30-minute vlog, Maricel shared her makeup transformation along with drag queen Xilhouete who had fun chatting with her all throughout the parody video. The former Drag Race finalist revealed that he has always shared a close friendship with Maricel whom he fondly refers to as “Inay.”
“Kung hindi niyo pa alam, matagal ko ng nanay si Inay. And I’m so happy na naging nanay ko siya. Pero prior to that, alam ko na kasi kung gaano ka-professional at gaano kagaling si Inay nung days pa ng Vietnam Rose.”
After finishing her drag queen look, the veteran actress enjoyed a pictorial with Xilhouete in the parody video which also followed the format of the local drag queen show.
“Tabi, tabi, tabi, tabi. Tama na yan. Let me show you what a real, glowing, mom looks like. Shining bright like a diamond in the sky at 57. I am Kinang Inay. I’m giving you Ariana (Grande) and (Lady) Gaga’s love child realness.”
