Palace Drag Queen LaTrice Royale Cast on RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars
LaTrice Royale just missed the top three in the last season of RuPaul's Drag Race, but managed to pick up the Miss Congeniality crown and, of course, the highly coveted Miami New Times "Best Of award for Best Reality Contestant".
She may not have snatched the crown, but her casting on RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars means she'll get a second chance to "Get up, look sickening, and make them eat it."
If you're not familiar with LaTrice, well then obviously you're not watching what's silently become the best hour of reality TV your boob tube has to offer. It's the best parts of Project Runway, America's Next Top Model, and Real Housewives, mixed together with the drag queen realness of Paris is Burning. LaTrice, along with hipster spookster and winner Sharon Needles, were undoubtedly last season's breakout stars. LaTrice was a catch phrase machine with quotes like "The 5 Gs" (Good God Girl, Get a Grip), her definition of the word Bitch (Bitch In Total Control over Herself), "The shade ...the shade of it all," her trademark laugh, and her own theme song, "Jesus is a Biscuit."
In the clip below LaTrice, who works at Palace in South Beach and was open on the show about her stint in prison, talks about her casting on the All Stars series, which brings together fan favorites from the previous four seasons, her life in Florida, and her surprising love for Cleveland.
The show premiers on Logo in October, but luckily you won't have to wait that long to get your LaTrice fix. She'll be coming back homefor four shows this month in South Florida
. On the 13th and 27th she'll be back at Palace, and on the 9th and 23rd she'll be up at Boom in Fort Lauderdale.
