"RuPaul's Drag Race" loves to bring back former contestants for "All Stars," to act as mentors, or to make cameos. But some queens have been banned completely... for good or bad reasons.
These are the queens who will never, ever be back for "All Stars" or any other "RPDR" shows.
On her season, Pearl got into a spat with Ru. Remember the legendary, “Do I have something on my face?” moment? Well, there was apparently a lot more behind the scenes.
In an interview, Pearl said that RuPaul made an unkind comment:
“We were filming a segment, just kind of chatting, and then the camera went down for a moment.
I turned to RuPaul and I said: ‘Oh my God, I just want to say thank you so much. It is such an honor to be here, such a pleasure to meet you – you have no idea what this…’ just giving her everything I want to say to her.
And she turned to me and she said: ‘Nothing you say matters unless that camera is rolling.’ And that broke my spirit.”
That is the reason why I had one foot in and one foot out the entire time I was on that show.”
“But, in that moment, it was like so heartbreaking. Because I idolized her – worshipped her – and I felt like it was just so disrespectful.
“It was just so Hollywood, rotted, like gross thing. How could you say that to somebody who is just obsessed with you?’”
After the interview aired, a producer from the show contacted her to tell her that she will never be invited back for All Stars.
LaGanja says that the shitty treatment she experienced has turned her off from ever returning. Not only did she get an unflattering edit but she says her experience on So You Think You Can Dance was so much better that she will never return to VH1.
"My answer's always been no…. I'll be quite honest. It was quite traumatic. I haven't wanted to put myself in that position."
There was one year that she did say yes, but she did not pass the show’s psych evaluation.
Max is vocal about the fact that she was edited unfairly. At her elimination, the producers and RuPaul encouraged her to take off her corset, sit on stage, and sing to relax. Then, the show depicted her as unhinged.
She also publicly stated that she would never go back… then, she dropped several hints that she absolutely wants to go back, but has not been invited. It’s unlikely that VH1 will invite her back after she has publicly dissed the show repeatedly.
Willam is notorious for getting kicked off for violating the rules. At first, he said that his husband visited him in his hotel room. But last year, he claimed that he actually had an affair with a producer.
He says Ru did things that were “dismissive as fuck and demeaning to do to any other human.”
Willam has repeatedly dragged the show. These are some of his claims:
A production assistant grabbed his ass
Producers “emotionally exploited” Jiggly Caliente on the anniversary of her mother’s death
Producers were racist towards Latrice
They were not given enough food to eat
Production refused to let Shangela go to the hospital when she had glass embedded in her back; instead, a producer picked it out with tweezers to save money and avoid paperwork.
On All Stars Four, RuPaul saved Valentina even though both queens had her names on their lipsticks
Willam, we know you were on ONTD-- come back and spill more tea!
The Vixen was a notorious shit-stirrer on her season. She provoked arguments with Aquaria, got in a screaming match with Eureka, and stormed out of the reunion, prompting RuPaul to read her for filth. But All Stars might still have had her return as a villain… until she:
-Referred to Ru as an Uncle Tom
-Compared being on Drag Race to slavery
-Defended Kevin Hart after his homophobia surfaced
-Made fun of Sahara Davenport’s death.
Yeah… Doubt she is welcome back.
Oh, Tyra. She had it all. She was the youngest winner ever, and she did it even after she was a total bitch on season 2. But then she tweeted Tatianna’s phone number, threatened Tatianna, and Phi Phi:
“when you see Ms. Phi Phi and Ms. Mother Fucking Tati’s ass stretched out on the motherfucking ground, you will know it was me.
Yeah, I may not have physically did it, but it will be my doing. Remember that shit, bitch.”
She was disinvited from Drag Con, and then made veiled threats against it. Authorities searched her house for bombs, but the only apparent bomb was her drag career.
Which banned queen do you want to return? Which queen should be banned?
