RuPaul’s Drag Race

RuPaul is not giving us an opportunity to miss her luscious ladies. The cast of RuPaul's Drag Race season 5 has just been announced, welcoming to the main stage 14 girls campaigning to be America's next drag superstar. 

Let's meet the girls! 


Last week I spoke with RuPaul's All Stars Drag Race star Nina Flowers. On the heels of her elimination Nina and I discussed the "Synergy" aspect of All Stars (aka Teams), drama with judging, and her relationship with Tammie Brown

Nina was very thoughtful when discussing the show and had a lot of insightful comments on how the teams challenges worked for and against participants. And she also gave us a glimpse of what's to come for Nina Flowers now that reality TV is over. 

An excerpt from our conversation is below: 

What is your reaction to being eliminated? Did the Teams aspect play a role in that?

"It definitely had something to do with it more than if we would have had to compete as individuals. Competing in teams is definitely tougher. It's not just about your performance, it's also about your team partner. We did the best we could as a team and it is what it is. I'm sad that I wasn't able to take it all the way to the end like I did on season one, but I'm OK with it. It was definitely a fulfilling experience and I feel happy I was a part of All Stars." 



Yesterday I got the exciting opportunity to speak to Manila Luzon. As everybody knows I am an enormous fan of RuPaul's All Stars Drag Race. Manilla was funny, candid, and his larger-than-life, exuberant persona came through over the phone! 

"I love talking about myself," Manila exclaimed when I thanked him for speaking with Reality Tea. And that about sums it up.  

Why did you decide to return for All Stars Drag Race?

"The money, kinda! I didn't win my season and I heard they were giving away a lot more money on the all stars season. So, I was like 'Well I did pretty well last time so let me take my chances again.' You can kinda like go through a list of all the girls that had been there and be like, 'Well I think I could take her and I think I could take her too. You know I sent her home before, let's do this!' And I decided to go back on TV for my fans so they could see me."



If you've ever wondered what She By SheBroke and NeNe Leakes would look like as real live drag queens, you have your answer! Latrice Royale and DiDa Ritz, stars of RuPaul's Drag Race spoofed the infamous "toof wars" as NeNe and Sheree in the "Real Dragwives."  

Their hilarious turn on one of Real Housewives of Atlanta's most classic fights is priceless and straight on. And it begs the question, who plays a better NeNe: NeNe or Latrice?

The video is below!

Last week RuPaul's Drag Race star Sahara Davenport unfortunately passed away from heart failure at age 28. Sahara, aka Antoine Ashley, had been in a relationship with fellow Drag Race contestant Manila Luzon for six years. 

In an interview with People Magazine, Karl Westerberg (stage name Manila) speaks out about the passing of his boyfriend and discusses how this tragic loss has impacted his life. 

"I'm left cherishing his memories and carrying out his legacy," Karl shared. "I was lucky enough to have time with him." The pair met years ago at a bar in their neighborhood and were together ever since. 


This is both hilarious and sad. On Tuesday, Sahara Davenport passed away of heart failure leaving behind very sad friends and family. In an homage to the RuPaul's Drag Race star,  TV Guide ran a story on Sahara's passing. Unfortunately the photograph included with the piece was not Sahara's, but former Real Housewives of Atlanta star Sheree Whitfield!

A photo of Sheree's mistaken identity is below!


The fantastic Sahara Davenport, star of RuPaul's Drag Race season 2 passed away last night. Sahara, 28, who was in a relationship with Manila Luzon, was one of the break-out performers of the show. 

In addition to appearing on Drag Race, Sahara, born Antoine Ashley Davenport, was an actor and singer; releasing two singles: “Pump with Me” (2010) and “Go Off” (2011).

The cause of death has yet to be determined and more concise details have not yet emerged.
