A few tarot cards, a telephone, and mere caftan eleganza aren’t enough to channel the spirit of Miss Cleo, honey: that Jamaican accent has to come through, but Shangela’s lackluster mastery of the island dialect seems to foretell a Snatch Game disaster in her future.
In EW’s exclusive sneak peek at RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars 3‘s upcoming episode (above), Shangela prepares to embody the legendary psychic for the fan-favorite celebrity impersonation challenge while Mama Ru and guest judge Marc Jacobs stand by to offer a few pointers.
“She died a couple years ago from heart disease,” Shangela tells Jacobs, who quips back: “She didn’t see that coming?”
It’s obvious Ru isn’t thrilled with Shangela’s creative direction, especially when listening to her version of the late commercial medium’s voice.
“Actually, your accent sounded a little like Ireland for a minute, there,” Ru observes.
“Wait a minute. Miss Cleo is Jamaican,” a stunned Shangela says in a confessional. “If you thinkin’ she’s a four leaf clover fish, I’m maybe going home [to heaven] with Cleo.”
See how Shangela’s Miss Cleo realness goes over with the rest of the RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars 3 judges this Thursday at 8 p.m. ET on VH1. Watch EW’s exclusive preview of the upcoming episode above.
