"RuPaul's Drag Race": Phi Phi O'Hara offends DiDa Ritz and Latrice Royale

It was time to "Frock The Vote" as "RuPaul's Drag Race" (Mon., 10 p.m. ET on Logo) got into the spirit of the 2012 Presidential Race with a politics-themed challenge.

However, campaigning for the Wig Party nomination Phi Phi O'Hara seriously offended Latrice Royale and DiDa Ritz.

Guest judge Dan Savage asked Phi Phi which one of her fellow drag queens she'd choose as her running mate and why.

"I think it's so great that the help" said Phi Phi, gesturing toward her black competitors, "can sit there and compete alongside me. So I'd definitely like to say, my help: DiDa Ritz!"

As Phi Phi continued on her highly questionable way, Ritz could be seen mouthing her outraged response and Royale looked thunderous. Meanwhile, Savage's jaw literally dropped.

"Did she just call me 'the help?'" asked Ritz. For her part, an angry Royale said, "I'm from Compton. I'll whoop your a**!"

At judges' table Phi Phi got some advice from Michelle Visage. "In order to land an off-color joke," she said. "It has to be funny. And that joke came across as offensive."

"RuPaul's Drag Race" continues on Mondays at 10 p.m. ET on Logo.
