A crossover between the original Queer Eye For The Straight Guy lads and the Netflix reboot bois has long been discussed and OG member Carson Kressley has a fab idea of how to bring it to life: a make-over off!
“We would actually be making over two houses and two different guys — it could be simultaneous,” the 49-year-old told Us Weekly, adding, “Netflix, if you’re watching…”
The RuPaul’s Drag Race judge thought a crossover would not have been possible before now, ‘coz the cast, consisting of Antoni Porowski, Tan France, Karamo Brown, Bobby Berk and Jonathan Van Ness, needed a chance to establish their own identities as the new incarnation of the Fab Five.
“Now I think maybe it could,” he explained. “It could be fun. It could be a charity thing or something. Like, why not?”
Kressley previously came under fire for comments he made about the new crop of queer boys.
The fashion expert ran his mouth about the series while attending an event to celebrate the 70th birthday of The Emmys at NeueHouse Hollywood.
“I’m thrilled that they’re nominated, but it was a little more groundbreaking back when we won an Emmy in 2004,” he said.
Queen JVN’s response to Carson’s shade was pure class, check it:
“I think we all sometimes… we just say things. And it was so groundbreaking what they did and it continues to be so groundbreaking, the first version of Queer Eye,” the 31-year-old told Us Weekly.
“I respect Carson so much and I look up to him so much. I think he’s an incredible entertainer and performer and I’m so excited for his new show.”
Meanwhile the third season of the makeover series landed on Netflix last weekend to much applause from fans.
