LeGrande Green interviews the one, the only–and the outrageous–Bianca Del Rio, the season 6 champion of RuPaul’s Drag Race. Fresh off an international tour, this Queen of the World shows why she is truly the Queen of Shade (watch out Rihanna, Katy Perry and Kim Kardashian!).
Bianca shares the nitty gritty on her background (“I emerged from a drunken night in New Orleans. Then again, every night’s a drunken night in New Orleans”) to her “surprise” win (“Experience helped. I have no problem being 39–as long as my waist isn’t.”)
“Roy Haylock,” Bianca worked as a costume designer before her breakthrough television debut. “The challenge of the show was not who is the fiercest queen but who can produce the goods.” Bianca’s website is www.thebiancadelrio.com. Join the conversation at www.getboldtoday.
