Previously on All Stars, Phi squared continued to struggle to get her rudemption by continuing to be hard on the other queens before lip syncing for her legacy, losing to Alaska and confirming she too would have sent Alyssa home by way of a rant about Ms. Edwards … before the two way mirror dropped to show that all the eliminated Queens – Alyssa included – were on the other side, listening and waiting for their ruvenge.
Trust the duchess, poor Phi is not going to have a good episode cause Alyssa and her back rolls were back back back back again.
Despite Alyssa trying to sort through the issues, Phi Phi opted to shut her down rather than talking it through, Ginge brought up her issues with Alyssa – then contradicted them by saying she would have quit to give Katya the chance to stay had she been eliminated – before Alyssa shut her down by saying that eliminating Katya would have been the strategic move.
The next day after the fighting calmed down, the queens returned to the workroom to get their challenge – a stand up made up of duos with the winning returning queens lip syncing for their legacy and the chance to return, while also sending a remaining queen home.
As expected Roxxxy didn’t perform well as the host, Alaska, Detox and Katya gladly worked hard for their potential returning players and poor Phi Phi and Coco struggled to be funny or land any jokes, sending poor sweet Coco back home and Phi Phi into the bottom with Roxxxy.
Thankfully for Alaska, both of the queens she eliminated landed in the top two and after a lip sync for the ages tied and were each given the opportunity to eliminate someone in the bottom.
Sadly for Phi Phi, both Tatianna and Alyssa opted to eliminate her from the competition.
Make no mistakes, Phi Phi has had it rough in the edit however I feel if she owned her statements, and had a little fun and relaxed about how she would be perceived, it would have been better on her. But alas, that didn’t happen.
I’ve known Phi x 2 for many years now, after meeting at Comic Con the year I was banned for attacking Hugh Jackman. While I ended up in anger management because of the incident, Phi Phi took my side and supported me through my problems. Probably because our shared spirit animal is a monkey – we are both small, cute and will fling our faeces at you if you cross us.
Deep down Phi Phi has a heart of gold and despite the rage she was feeling after being told to sashay away once per Phi in a single night, I was able to cheer her up and bring a little sweetness with my Phi Phi O’Haramel Tart.
Sadly – or fittingly, depending how you view it – caramel and I have a tumultuous relationship and it generally ends up being a burnt caramel as opposed to a simple caramel and has an acidic sweetness.
So, like Phi Phi and I – enjoy!
Phi Phi O’Haramel Tart
1 ½ cups plain flour
2 tbsp caster sugar
125g chilled butter, diced
1 egg yolk
2 tbsp chilled water
1 ½ cup caster sugar
1 ⅓ cup thickened cream
Combine the flour and sugar in a large bowl and press through the butter with the tips of your fingers, until it resembles wet sand. Knead through the egg and half the water until it just comes together – if it is too dry, add the remaining water. Shape it into a disc, wrap in plastic and place in fridge to chill for half an hour.
Preheat the oven to 160°C.
Roll out the pastry between two sheets of baking paper until it is about 3-5mm thick and gently lay into a fluted tart dish, press in, line with baking paper, fill with baking weights and return to the fridge for ten minutes. Once chilled, place straight into the oven and bake for fifteen minutes. Remove the baking weights and return to oven for a further ten minutes, or until golden and crisp.
Remove from oven and leave to rest.
While the case is resting, place the sugar in a frying pan over medium heat and cook for 5 minutes or so, without stirring as long as possible, until the sugar turns golden. Reduce to low, whisk through the cream and cook for a few minutes, until smooth.
Remove from the heat, whisk through the butter and allow to cool for a few minutes.
Pour into the pastry case and refrigerate until set. Then devour.
