Trinity the Tuck has gone viral for spilling all the T on an unaired exchange between Raja and Michelle Visage on RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars 7.
In the video, which has received almost 70k likes on TikTok, the season nine and All Stars 4 alum can be seen performing at an event and taking questions from the audience.
One individual asks Trinity about a rumoured moment on the main stage in which Raja “told Michelle Visage that she doesn’t…” before the star playfully cuts her off to reveal, “the third episode!”
Before confirming what had happened between the two drag queens, Trinity once again addressed a major criticism from All Stars 7: the panel’s reluctance to offer the queens constructive criticism.
Each week, the eight returning winners – which also includes Jaida Essence Hall, Jinkx Monsoon, Monét X Change, Shea Couleé, The Vivienne and Yvie Oddly – have been showered with endless praise for their performances and runway presentations, with zero negative critiques.
While a majority of viewers have welcomed this optimistic new approach to their judging, saying it creates a more positive and celebratory environment for the queens, there are a select few who have not reacted kindly to it.
“Everyone thinks that the judges didn’t give us negative critiques on All Stars 7, they did,” explained Trinity. “They did give us negative critiques, they just chose to edit that out. RuPaul has that song, Blame It On The Edit.
“Well bitch, I’m blaming it on the edit. The edit was: they chose not to show any of the negative critiques, which is fine, it made it look great.”
Trinity then disclosed the unaired altercation with Raja and Michelle, saying the latter came for the season three winner on the main stage.
“Raja looked dead at Michelle and said, ‘Who are you to judge me? You have no credentials other than being the host’s best friend,'” she revealed to huge applause from the audience.
“Then when we got offstage, backstage in the werkroom, the cameras were cut and she told all the producers, ‘She should be fired!’ I don’t know if I agree or not, that’s what she said. So, we’re spilling tea right here.”
During the third episode of Drag Race All Stars 7, the queens were challenged to present three runway looks in categories inspired by the iconic game show, Wheel of Fortune: Vanna White Realness; Before and After; and Realness of Fortune Eleganza.
The latter required the contestants to concoct an ensemble made from materials in a single colour palette inspired by a vacation destination.
Raja surprisingly failed to win the challenge, although many viewers hailed her look as one of the best in herstory.
Trinity didn’t confirm which look Michelle criticised.
“I knew from the announcement Raja did not come to be messed with! She knows her worth already! She should 100% be in the top 4 right now!” one fan said in response, while another theorised that Raja “is the reason” negative critiques were edited out.
“Trinity is literally doing the Lord’s work. Ugh god bless her keeping us messyheads fed,” said another.
Although Raja or Michelle haven’t commented on the matter, the former appeared to confirm it an Instagram Story as she reposted the video with the caption, “@trinitythetuck is an embellishment queen!”
The seventh season of Drag Race All Stars will come to a gag-worthy end this Friday (29 July) with a lip-sync smackdown for the crown between Jinkx Monsoon, Monét X Change, Shea Couleé and Trinity the Tuck.
The winner will receive $200,000 and the title of “Queen of All Queens”.
A second lip-sync tournament will be held amongst Jaida Essence Hall, Raja, The Vivienne and Yvie Oddly to determine the “Queen of She Done Already Had Herses,” who will earn a $50,000 cash prize.
