"The Price is Right" and Drag Queen RuPaul Raise Nearly $100K for Planned Parenthood (VIDEO)

"The Price Is Right" partnered with drag queen RuPaul to raise almost $100,000 for Planned Parenthood during a special prime-time episode of the game show.

The episode aired Monday night (May 11), and like past prime-time specials, it featured a celebrity guest and raised money for charity. The guest was RuPaul, and the chosen charity was Planned Parenthood. By the end of the episode, host Drew Carey announced that over $92,000 had been raised for America's largest abortion provider.

RuPaul has a personal connection to Planned Parenthood - his mother once worked at one of the organization's clinics. LifeNews reports that RuPaul once told Marie Claire Magazine “Women in our culture have been so marginalized and so really beaten down. We live in a masculine-dominated culture. How dare some man tell a woman what to do with her body. That is outrageous! Outrageous. As a human, that is a big issue for me that really strikes a chord.”

This clip from the "Price is Right" YouTube account highlights the show, but does not mention Planned Parenthood, likely a deliberate move to avoid controversy.
