The week in leaks

The cast of “RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars” Season 3 may have just leaked. Guess who’s back.

Never mind that a third season of RuPaul‘s Drag Race: All Stars hasn’t even been announced yet — Twitter is atwitter with rumors swirling of a leaked cast list; a bewigged saga of espionage and secrets that’s capturing the public’s imagination.

The show usually films in the summertime, and fans have been in overdrive wondering which former contestants will return to reclaim the crown they so richly deserve, and the adulation of the crowd that is their bread and butter.

One Twitter user by the name of William claims to have the T — as in Trixie. As in Thorgy. As in, he posted a list of sequin-studded names and wrote “they filmed the first episode of All Stars 3 today & it was in front of a live audience (talent show) and ppl have leaked the list.”

Possible spoilers below:

A Reddit thread goes into exhaustive detail about how the list was compiled — these fans mean business.

Do you think this list — which name-checks queens that appeared as early as season two’s Morgan McMichaels and as late as last season’s Aja — could possibly be legit, or is this just unsubstantiated gossip, fluff and piffle and you’re furious at such irresponsible reporting and will cancel your subscription immediately since important things are happening in the world but we’re sitting here wondering who the hell is going to appear on All Stars…

    Shangela i believe, she’s gone dark on social media. I love me some Ru but we ain’t stupid, a lot of these queens are very active on social media, so the minute they go dark hello we know they are shooting drag race, i was able to connect the dots last year when Roxxxy and Phi Phi went mia. I get you want secrecy but that’s an obvious way to figure it out because they can’t have their phones.

    • Luc

      Nice work, Sherlock!! I think you’re right. Shangela is literally posting on Twitter almost every day, sometimes multiple times a day. And now nothing since July 26th, HMMmmmmm…..

  • niccyg

    I made an account to comment get a life.
    So I think to actually really get a life.

    • geb1966

      Simple solution: Don’t watch. But don’t bitch about it because a lot of people obviously do. Your comment served no purpose but to be bitchy.

    • Luc

      So you comment on here just to be catty. Hahaha.

    • acedacs

      this is such a bullshit comment – if it bores you to death then it ISN’T MADE FOR YOU.

      if you don’t like watching drag that’s fine, but there’s no need to be dismissive and an asshole. get a grip, get a life and get over it.

    • DCguy

      So says the guy reading an article about a TV show about Drag Queens. Yeah, sounds like it’s REALLY boring for you.

  • Caine

    I don’t think anyone on that list is winner material, therefore, I don’t think that list is true.
    I hope Morgan will be on All-Stars 3, but I don’t see her winning.

    • acedacs

      i agree with you – this doesn’t seem to be a group with a clear winner, based on winners in the past (both on regular seasons and AS1 & 2). but that makes it even more fun in my opinion! :)

    • pharaon.em.joe

      Trixie is a contender in my opinion. She has grown a lot. Stage presence, performance, outfits, hair, make up. She is funny.. witty.. super confident. I don’t see why not. :)

  • DCguy

    I’m guessing they would throw in some drama if they were doing All Stars 3, Maybe Gia Gunn, Laganga, and/or Willam.

    And there seems like some people left out, Courntey Act, Kim Chi, Ongina,

    • Spike

      Agreed, however, what do Courtney Act and Kim Chi have to gain from going back on the show??? Esp if they don’t win and only get caught up in some ugly manufactured drama.

      The whole ‘Winner of RPDR’ has watered down considerably and soon to jump the shark to ‘The Winner of America’s Next Top Model, Cycle 65….’

    • geb1966

      Kim Chi is #8 on the list, dear.

    • Luc

      THAT would be a great show. I’d love to see Gia and Laganja and ESPECIALLY Willam come back but I think, at least in Willam’s case, there is some bad blood with RPDR, which makes it unlikely.

    • DCguy

      Hi Spike,

      My guess, is that especially with the switch to the new channel, the ratings have gone way up and being on allstars 3 would be a way for Cournty and Kim Chi to make sure the new fans knew who they were and wanted to see them.

      Look what happened with Tatianna, she went from being not well known to the new fans to being one of the most booked up headliners.

  • JessPH

    No Valentina. Thank goodness.

    • cdizz

      Came here to say the same thing, Jess.

    • KMF11

      don’t worry. she will be on All Stars 4. And, she will win! :)

    • DCguy


      Not sure why Valentina would win, a Drag queen who can’t lip Sync is not a threat to win.

    • pharaon.em.joe


  • badscott

    Shangela = fetch. Rupaul, stop trying to make fetch happen. It’s not going to happen.

    • chrissiefresh

      YEESSSSSS!!! Haven’t we seen Shangela enough. Good for her to have the career she does but do we really need to see her on RDPR a 3rd time?

  • KiraNerysRules

    Aja was going to be in Wichita, Kan. tomorrow with Sasha, Shea and Trinity. But, she’s no longer on the roster…

    • Luc


  • geb1966

    Ben DelaCreme made it very clear last year when asked about All stars that he had no interest in revisiting Drag Race.

    • Luc

      Two words: $$.

    • DCguy

      When new queens are getting big bucks and you aren’t, you decide to sell out really quick would be my guess.

  • comfortablydum

    Kim Chi isn’t #8 on the list, Chi Chi is.

    I think this is a strong bunch but honestly Trixie is the only one I can see winning, her post show career has been amazing and she’s gained soooo much confidence.

    I do want some fish drama tho.

    I’d personally love to see April Carrion back, I think she and Milk have some of the best looks in RPDR herstory

    • Luc

      Good catch, I was getting their names mixed up, too. I loved Chi Chi and I’m glad she’ll be back (assuming this is real), but Kim Chi is also obviously one of the best contestants the show has had. And I think there are a couple of other top tier players who I’d love to see back but, I’m sure it will still be a great show!!

    • acedacs

      your comment is literally every point i was just making in my head – agreed on all points!!!

    • DCguy

      My ONLY question about Trixie is, she seems locked into that one look. It’s like Kim Chi did her make-up for her once, and she doesn’t know how to paint anything else.

      But then again, she may surprise the hell out of all of us!

  • Luc

    YASSSSS!!!! Please say it is true!!! I love Shangela, and BenDela, and Chi Chi, and Trixie!!! But you know who is missing from this list? One hint: She’s perfect, she’s beautiful, she looks like Linda Evangelista. Where is she?!

    • Brian

      Valentina would be stupid to go on All Stars this summer. She has a very limited window of time to cash in on her popularity from last season, especially since there are so many stories of her being a huge diva. Right now she’s getting more money per gig than she deserves, but that’s not going to last very long. It would make much more sense for her to wait a year to do it, by then her toxic attitude will have affected her earning potential and she’ll need the career boost that AS4 could provide her.

  • CarlIsle

    It is WAY TOO SOON for another All Stars.

    • pharaon.em.joe

      I kinda agree.. usually it’s once every 3-4 years. But who cares :p
