Tabatha Coffey: Beyonce Needs A 'Drag Queen Nanny'
Tabatha Coffey is back, and this time the hairstylist isn't just taking over salons, she's got her eye on anyone who could use some harsh criticism -- even giving Beyonce parenting advice.
"Always tell the truth even in your personal life," the "Tabatha Takes Over" star told me on the set of my HDNet talk show "Naughty But Nice with Rob." "It's not meant to hurt them, it's meant to be honest and help them. Like when my partner says 'Do I look good?' and I tell the truth."
Insisting that she is not cruel but rather constructive, Tabatha says her unconventional upbringing, which included her mother running a brothel, has made her the person she is today.
"She did [run a brothel] for a while," Tabatha told me. "I sat in there and saw them get ready and they would ask me how they look and my mother would say, 'You've looked better.' My parents actually ran drag clubs in Australia, which is how I grew up. It was normal for me. It was my normal. I knew the other kids didn't do it, but for me it was life and nothing was wrong with it. I would see nothing wrong with Beyonce having a drag queen nanny. And why not? Everyone needs one! And a great gay man in their life."
"Naughty But Nice" airs Thursdays at 8:00 p.m., exclusively on HDNet.
