‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’ celebrity edition is coming

A dozen stars are going to wig out on VH1 next year.

The network is planning to launch “RuPaul’s Celebrity Drag Race,” a spinoff of the Emmy-winning reality show that will feature 12 celebs who will hit the runaway after drag transformations with help from previous “Drag Race” contestants.

“Doing drag does not change who you are, it reveals who you are,” said host and executive producer RuPaul in the announcement. “I can’t wait for the world to see what happens when our celebrity contestants get all up in drags!”

There’s no word yet on when the four-episode series will officially premiere, or what stars will sashay to the set for drag makeovers in hopes of being crowned America’s Next Celebrity Drag Superstar for the first time.

“RuPaul’s Drag Race” alums who will help primp the all-stars include New Yorkers Monét X Change and Bob the Drag Queen, Alyssa Edwards, Asia O’Hara, Kim Chi, Monique Heart, Nina West, Trinity the Tuck, Trixie Mattel and Vanessa Vanjie Mateo.

VH1 recently renewed “RuPaul’s Drag Race” and “RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars” for seasons 12 and 5, respectively.
