RuPaul's Drag Race

  • 'Rupaul’s Drag Race’ Exit Interview: Aja

     Aja may have been eliminated from “RuPaul’s Drag Race” after a scorching lip synch with Nina Bonina Brown, but she shows no signs of slowing down. From her single “C.L.A.T.” with her fellow season nine New York sisters to her world travels promoting both her drag and her brand, I have a feeling we will be seeing a lot more of Aja. I sat down with her and we went deep on the political movement that exists within drag and what it takes to make it as a drag queen in today’s world. 

  • ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race,’ Exit interview: Alexis Michelle

     

    No one was eagerly anticipating her entrance into the “RuPaul’s Drag Race” workroom than Alexis Michelle. As someone who has tried out, literally, for every single season of the show, this New York born, Broadway baby was ready for the spotlight. While she fell short as an illustrious member of this season’s Top Five, she is only just getting started. Alexis sat down with us to chat about her sometimes-controversial time on the show, what she has planned for her post “Drag Race” career, and why she thinks this year’s Pride events may be one of the most important ones yet.

  • All Stars 4 Eliminated Contestant: Manila Luzon

    It should be no surprise to any of us that Manila Luzon (along with fellow All Stars 1contestant and Latrila teammate Latrice Royale) is the first contestant to appear on two cycles of RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars; she has been taking her stiletto and kicking down barriers as long as she has been in the game.
  • Asia O’Hara Talks Her Proudest Drag Race Moment, Returning For All Stars and and The Infamous Butterfly Incident

    Asia O’Hara bought Texas sized talent and a pageant pedigree to this season of RuPaul’s Drag Race and proved herself to be a force to be reckoned with, making it all the way to the top four. While a butterfly mishap contributed to O’Hara’s wings being clipped in the competition, this is by far, not the last we will see of Asia O’Hara. I sat down to chat with her about what made her proudest this season, her new single “Queen For Tonight” and the infamous butterfly incident.

  • Drag Race Exit Interview: Monet X Change

    To say Monet X Change made an impression during Season Ten of RuPaul’s Drag Race is putting it mildly. From the moment she hit her first runway challenge in a dress made almost completely of sponges, viewers knew that this talented and crafty New York City queen was officially in the game! She may have been eliminated just shy of the Top Five after a scorching lip sync against Kameron Michaels, but this queen is going to be giving her fans plenty to soak up. I caught up with Monet to talk about her Drag Race experience, the issue of race and the Drag Race fans, and what her new single Soak It Up is all about.

  • Emmy-Winning RuPaul’s Drag Race Abruptly Moves to Mainstream Channel

  • Eureka Speaks; “The Elephant Queen” Talks About “The Big Girl”, The Vixen and Being Worthy

    Back after an abbreviated Season Nine due to injury, Eureka came roaring back to the RuPaul’s Drag Race Season Ten workroom, and boy did she have something to say. The self-proclaimed “Elephant Queen” tore through the completion and despite a couple missteps (and battles with cast member The Vixen) she climbed the ranks to the Top Four. Sitting down with me to talk about her Season Ten experience, Eureka was reflective and her signature hilarious self, where we talked about everything from her new video “The Big Girl” to her battles with cast members to finally and most importantly, finding her worth.

  • Exit Interview, Kimora Blac, 2nd Girl Out of “RuPaul’s Drag Race” Season 9

     

    Kimora Blac was looked at as one of the “body” girls on this season of “RuPaul’s Drag Race” and was poised to give some of the other “fishy” gals like Trinity Taylor and Farrah Moan a true run for their money. Sadly, a princess challenge and a sidekick in the form of a monkey sidelined her race to the finish line and she was sent home. I sat down for a chat with this Las Vegas showstopper, and we talked about everything for her adoration for the business sense of one miss Kim K, what Kimora learned from her time on “Drag Race” and what Kimora Blac is all about behind the makeup.

  • Exit Interview: Charlie Hides, “RuPaul’s Drag Race” Season 9

     Already well known for her side-splitting videos impersonating gay icons like Madonna and Lady Gaga, many eyes were on Charlie Hides as one of the ones to watch on this season of “RuPaul’s Drag Race”. While she may have “sashayed away” during any anticlimactic Britney Spears lip sync, my chat with her showed me that the “Transatlantic Dame” is only just beginning her reign. From her new single “The Dame” to why she ended up going home this early in the season to why she felt it was important to speak about the H.I.V./A.I.D.S. crisis during her time on the show, my talk with Charlie Hides shows that she is in it for the long haul!

  • Exit Interview: Eureka O'Hara 'RuPaul's Drag Race' Season 9

     

    Eureka O’Hara may have clashed with several of her co-stars on this season of “RuPaul’s Drag Race” but the audience had nothing but love for this Johnson City, TN native. As the season progressed, this seasoned and hilarious queen started to look like one of the ones to beat for the title of “America’s Next Drag Superstar”. Sadly, an injury incurred during the second week challenge caused her to ultimately have to “sashay away” much earlier. I sat down to chat with Eureka on her early elimination, her clashes with fellow contestants, and what it was like to get to have a truly personal moment with Mother Monster herself. 

  • Exit Interview: Farrah Moan, “RuPaul’s Drag Race” Season 9

     

    From the moment, the spitfire that is Farrah Moan slinked into the “RuPaul’s Drag Race” workroom, we knew that she would be causing a stir. This Las Vegas showgirl stormed the runway in authentic Lady Gaga “Judas” realness, and showed some real heart in challenges that truly had her going out of her comfort zone. I sat down to chat with Farrah about what she’s learned from her fellow contestants, what she thinks her responsibility is with the platform she now has, and what she wants everyone to know about Farrah Moan.

  • Kameron Michaels Talks Supporting The Younger Generation and Being Season Ten’s Undisputed Lip Sync Assassin

    Kameron Michaels was one of the most eagerly anticipated contestants to appear on RuPaul’s Drag Race before he even hit the workroom. His smoldering good looks out of drag coupled with his scorching performances on the main stage made him one of the ladies to beat, catapulting hm to the Top Four. I sat down with Kameron to talk about her performance on Drag Race this season, how she manages to have a very special relationship with younger fans, and why the man behind Kameron Michaels is finally coming into his own.

  • Multitalented ‘Drag Race: All Stars’ Winner Brings New Show to Broward

    When 28-year-old Brian Michael Firkus dons pumps and a wig, he transforms into the outrageous, life-sized Barbie doll Trixie Mattel, the winner of season 3 of “RuPaul’s Drag Race: All Stars.” But, behind the make-up, the thoughtful Wisconsin native is a talented performer, musician and songwriter who can imagine life after drag. “Trixie” is currently on a victory tour of the country with her new show “Trixie Mattel: Now with Moving Parts” and she/he took a few minutes recently to discuss “their” careers and future ambitions:

  • RuPaul Joins Hollywood Walk of Fame

    The 2018 class for the Hollywood Walk of Fame was announced this week and the host of the hit reality competition series RuPaul's Drag Race, RuPaul Charles, is getting his own star.

  • RuPaul Season 11: Soju 

    Being the first queen to leave any season of RuPaul’s Drag Race is never an enviable position. While last year Vanessa “Miss Vangie” Mateo became a meme queen (and returned for Season 11), it remains to be seen if any queen in future seasons has the ability to capture the fandom’s attention like Ms. Mateo did.

  • RuPaul's Drag Race Exit Interview: Blair St Claire

    You would be hard-pressed to find a fan of RuPaul's Drag Race that simply did not adore Blair St. Clair. This plucky Midwestern gal hit the Drag Race workroom and with a boatload of talent and heart to match. While she came short of snagging the crown, she managed to grab the heartstrings of every single viewer with her raw talent and an even rawer emotional story from her past. I caught up with Blair to talk about how her fellow Hoosier queens feel about her time on Drag Race, what her honesty about her past has brought to her life today, and how her new single (and video) Now Or Never has more meaning than we may have realized.
