Ayo sis! Ayo ma! READERS. It’s a family affair at The Shade Table this week as Kyle is joined by his twin sister Kayla and mother Karen to kiki about this week’s episode! Kayla talks about her admiration for look queens, Karen apparently really doesn’t like Widow, Kyle divulges some tips about making the most of small parts in a show, and we recap the ups, downs and “Who should go home tonight and why?”s of Episode 5 of Season 12: Gay’s Anatomy!

Hope you’re ready for some unprecedented firsts on The Shade Of It All, readers! This is our first life-altering pandemic during the pod, so Kyle is trying out a Hail Mary pass (that’s sports enough, right?) with recording first time guests (and the first ever call-in librarians!) Kevin Tallon (of the Gotham Knights rugby team) and two-time Olympic swimmer Amini Fonua! These athletic gentlemen flex their shade muscles as we talk serving it to one camera, living Jersey accents, Amino’s Barb status, Kevin’s food dating reality show past, hater merch, problematic faves, swimming vs. Broadway, 3 different brand new kinks to praise/shame, what it takes to see a goofy French person, and of course the THIRTY SIX (!) runway looks in this week’s Ball Ball! Who hit a home run? Who stayed in the gutter? How many bus driver wigs did you think this cast owns? Up your D! FENCE! and listen to find out! Gooooooooooal! (music:
