Get your first glimpse of RuPaul as Ruby Red in his upcoming scripted Netflix series “AJ and The Queen”

RuPaul stars as Ruby Red in AJ and The Queen, an outrageous new scripted comedy series arriving at Netflix on January 10.

Here is a synopsis: Robert Lee (RuPaul), better known as the drag queen Ruby Red, has big dreams of opening his very own drag club. After years of performing in clubs all across the country, he has scrimped and saved and is one signed lease away from turning his dreams into a reality until he realizes he’s been swindled by a charismatic grifter (Josh Segarra) and his eye-patch wearing partner-in-crime, Lady Danger (Tia Carrere). With his heart broken and money stolen, Robert has no choice but to pick up the pieces and start over, and a cross country Ruby Red roadshow provides the perfect opportunity to do just that.

But when AJ (Izzy G.), a scrappy, streetwise 10-year-old escaping a difficult home life, stows away in Robert’s rundown RV, the consummate performer suddenly finds himself in a new set of shoes: de facto parent. Fabulously mismatched yet perfectly paired, AJ and Ruby must find a way to navigate through tough times as they learn a few tricks from one another and roll on to brighter days. Michael-Leon Wooley and Katerina Tannenbaum also co-star.

Created by Michael Patrick King (Sex and the City) and RuPaul, and featuring performances by RuPaul in each episode, AJ and the Queen is an equally heartfelt and gritty comedy about finding family in the unlikeliest of people when they’re needed most.

On her 57th birthday, let’s take a look back at some of the many Jodie Foster movie memories

Time sure does fly.

Jodie Foster turns 57 today and she’s been an actress for just about all of her life.

She’s won Oscars for The Accused and The Silence of the Lambs and been nominated for Nell and Taxi Driver. She’s also starred in such box office hits as Panic Room, Contact, Maverick, Inside Man and Flightplan.

To celebrate her birthday – and her longevity, I’ve delved into the YouTube vaults for a sampling of scenes from throughout her career – all the way back to Freaky Friday and The Little Girl Who Lived Down the Lane.

Tuesday Morning Man: Guido Pella!

Argentinian tennis star Guido Pella is pretty damned dreamy don’t you think?

The 29 year old may not be a household name like Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer, or Novak Djokovic but he’s having a lot of success on the pro tour and is currently enjoying a career-high ranking of 20th in the world.

Guido made it to the quarterfinals of Wimbledon this year and won his first pro title.

WATCH: Celine Dion is asked about Barbra Streisand missing her big performance at 1997 Oscars

More than 20 years ago, Barbra Streisand explained in an interview with Barbara Walters that she did not miss Celine Dion’s performance at the 1997 Academy Awards on purpose.

Dion was a last-minute replacement for an ill Natalie Cole to sing I Finally Found Someone, the nominated song Streisand co-wrote for her movie The Mirror Has Two Faces.

As a nominated songwriter, Streisand was in attendance with fiancee James Brolin but was nowhere to be seen when Dion performed and there was buzz that she purposely snubbed Celine. Streisand told Walters that was ridiculous. The Oscars program didn’t list when the songs were being performed so she happened to be in the ladies room when Dion took the stage. She said she would have loved to have had cameras flash to her in the audience during the performance with her new man.

Last night on Watch What Happens Live, Celine was asked about the episode by Andy Cohen and she clearly didn’t see the Barbra-Barbara interview clearing things up!

“I believe that you have to find power and strength within your vulnerability, and that’s what I’m trying to do. I might have a meltdown in a few weeks and have to come off Instagram for a bit, but I think being in the public eye and showing these ups and downs, showing a fluctuating body, all these things, it’s important. I just want to be human. That’s my aim now—to be as human as possible.” Evolution of the Year, @SamSmith, opens 2019’s #Out100.

Morning Man Classic: Rock Hudson!

Rock Hudson was born 94 years ago today.

He starred in nearly 70 films during his career including Pillow Talk, Giant, Written on the Wind, Magnificent Obsession, A Farewell to Arms, Come September and Send Me No Flowers.

Through it all, he was a closeted gay man.

It’s a pity he had to live his life this way and that all these years later, Hollywood’s romantic leading men are still living this way.

But what a career Hudson had during his peak in the 50s and 60s – including his several comedies with Doris Day - then in television in the 70s with the long-running series McMillan and Wife.

His death of complications from AIDS in 1985 – he was just 59 – gave a public face to the terrible disease.

Audre Lorde died 27 years ago today

View this post on Instagram

“I do have hope. To face the realities of our lives is not a reason for despair—despair is a tool of your enemies. Facing the realities of our lives gives us motivation for action. For you are not powerless. Each one of us is privileged. Your privilege is not a reason for guilt, it is part of your power, to be used in support of those things you say you believe. Because to absorb without use is the gravest error of privilege. . “How much of your lives are you willing to spend merely protecting your privileged status? Is that more than you are prepared to spend putting your dreams and beliefs for a better world into action? That is what creativity and empowerment are all about. The rest is destruction. And it will have to be one or the other.” – Audre Lorde, 1989 . Picture: Audre Lorde (Feb. 18, 1934 – Nov. 17, 1992), 1984. Photo © Dagmar Shultz. . Audre Lorde, who died 27 years ago today, was a self-described “Black lesbian mother warrior poet,” best known as a visionary in Black feminist thought and for her analyses of the intersectional nature of all oppression. . “Throughout all of Audre Lorde’s writing, both nonfiction and fiction, a single theme surfaces repeatedly,” Allison Kimmich wrote. “The black lesbian feminist poet activist reminds her readers that they ignore differences among people at their peril… Instead, Lorde suggests, differences in race or class must serve as a ‘reason for celebration and growth.’” . Audre Lorde died of liver cancer on November 17, 1992; she was 58. Before her death, she took the name Gamba Adisa, which means "Warrior: She Who Makes Her Meaning Known." #HavePrideInHistory #AudreLorde #Resist
