We asked Latrice Royale of RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars Season 4 what she won’t share with other drag queens, and she knew exactly what they should keep their hands off of. But before we get to that, let’s take a look at some recent developments in the season of she who is large and in charge:
Week Four: Latrice Takes a Turner for the Worse
Has there ever been anything more heartbreaking than Manila Luzon weeping over the fate of Latrice Royale? Manila went into a very challenging “Lip Sync for Your Legacy” in Week Four of RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars desperate to save her friend Latrice Royale. Both Manila and Monique Heart served Tina Turner realness on “The Bitch Is Back.” Each knew that (whatever reason they would offer later) the lipstick in their decolletage would eliminate one of the other’s best friends in the competition. And when RuPaul declared Monique a “winner, baby,” it would be Monet X. Change to stay and Latrice to sashay away (as Manila cried bitter tears).
Week Five: Latrice is Back
Week Five’s “Lip Sync for Your Legacy” had echoes of Week Four’s epic showdown. However, this time it would be Manila going up directly against Monet. The song – an inspired and tricky choice – was the late Aretha Franklin’s “Jump to It.” However, after both queens turned in impressive performances, RuPaul shocked her girls by declaring that nobody would go home, and All Star Rules would be suspended. Then the remaining queens headed back to the workroom to find all four eliminated queens – Jasmine Masters, Farrah Moan, Gia Gunn, and Latrice Royale – awaiting their chance to return to the competition.More Hot Stories

Week Six: Latrice Syncs or Swims
Neither Manila nor Monet would get much of a chance to shine this week because they won immunity for their efforts in the previous week. But the episode would feature no shortage of drama as each of the eliminated queens took on a still-competing queen in a “Lip Sync for Your Life” with the promise that whoever won each lip sync would move on in the competition. The category was… the songs of Mother RuPaul. This led to a twerk-off between Jasmine Masters and Trinity the Tuck to “Peanut Butter” (shout out to Big Freedia!), a Britney vs. Selena moment for Farrah and Valentina on “Kitty Girl”, and a shot to the heart courtesy of Naomi Smalls and Gia Gunn on “Adrenaline.” These battles saw all three competing queens hold on to their positions. Then came the battle Royale: Latrice vs. Monique. To the tune of “Sissy That Walk”, the queens turned in an epic performance that included at least three death drops and EACH queen removing her wig – to reveal another wig! RuPaul declared Latrice Royale a winner, leaving Monique Heart gagged – until Ru declared Monique a winner, too!
So, now that Latrice has shared a victory, we thought we’d ask her what she WOULDN’T share. Here’s what she had to say:
“Metrosource wants to know: What’s the one thing I would never loan another queen from my vanity?” says Latrice Royale. “I would have to say my eye pencil. You don’t want to share eye gook with another queen’s eye gook. Blech!” Why? She adds, “That’s how you get swollen eyes!”
