With a personality as over-the-top as RuPaul’s, the last place you might expect him to be settling down is Wyoming, the least populous state in the nation. (About as many people live there as on Staten Island.)
But it’s true: RuPaul has an on-again, off-again partner who lives on a ranch in Wyoming.
“There’s a man… we were committed for many years. We split up, but we’ve never really quite split up. He is the love of my life. He has a ranch in Wyoming. As you get older, you realize that sort of the form that relationships take on, ones you grew up with, you grow out of that. You become more relaxed. He is my partner for life, but if I need to have burnt toast with another gentleman other than Jimmy and Judge Judy, then so be it.”
Note that Jimmy is not the name of RuPaul’s mysterious ranchero, but rather “a stuffed donkey” that Ru says he’s “slept with every night for the past 26 years.”
Drag Race‘s head-queen-in-charge seems to treasure time away in Wyoming with the partner.
“It’s very quiet,” Ru said. “I get to read a lot, I watch a lot of movies. I don’t do any of the hard labor or anything like that.”
No werq for Ru on this farm, eh?
