As the very first winner of the now widely acclaimed, Emmy-award-winning reality TV show, RuPaul's Drag Race, Bebe is the OG queen. While nearly a decade has passed since that inaugural season, Bebe's poise, voice, and style has only gotten better with time, like a full-bodied, rich bottle of wine. And my, my is she delicious.
Her Royal Highness joined us at narcbar at The Standard, East Village, to kick off RuPaul's DragCon Weekend with a very special edition of our weekly drag party, Miss Girl, hosted by Rify Royalty. We were joined by a spectacular group of visiting and local queens, including Marta BeatChu, Violencia Exclamation Point, Sookie Sterling and Art Simone. Before the queens turned the bar upside down and inside out, we caught up with Bebe in the Penthouse to chat about the evolution of Drag Race, her return to All Stars 3, and how she stays real through all the glamour and fame.
