Is “RuPaul’s Drag Race” Queen Alyssa Edwards Getting Her Own Show?


Last night at the MTV Movie Awards, RuPaul showed up with some surprising arm candy: Alyssa Edwards. The queen was eliminated a few weeks ago but she popped up at both MTV’s award show and Logo’s NewNowNext Awards (airing after RuPaul’s Drag Race) over the past weekend.

On Twitter, a fan asked why Ru had chosen to walk the red carpet with the former Miss Gay America. Ru responded that she was the executive producer of her new spin-off show. Reps at LOGO and VH1 did not confirm whether or not this information was true. So the mystery remains, at least for now, if the girl who gives all the face will be seen on TV again.

Screen Shot 2013-04-15 at 3.27.32 PMWhat do you think? Is it possible she’s getting her own show? What would it be about – her on the pageant circuit, a dissection of all her faces, an odd couple show with Coco? And more importantly, would you watch?

      Well when she is a boy she is the head choreographer/coach or something at a dance studio in Mesquite, Texas. Logo could milk a reality show out of that.

      So, a failed pageant winner, bad comedian, bad actor, and admitted fan of mediocrity gets her own show. At least RuPaul is a good judge of character.

      Alyssa? Seriously? I could think of about twenty-five queens from the show who should be ahead of Alyssa on any list RuPaul is making for possible spin-offs.

      Just what we need, another freakin flamer to re-enforce the Gay=effeminate stereotype.
      Thanks Logo.

      Even though she can’t act, I find her to be entertaining when she is just being herself and not even trying, so yeah, I would watch.

      Nope. Dumb and mean is an unsightly combination.

      I like Alyssa. I like Coco too. Together they’re the Tom & Jerry of drag.
      I was rooting for the two of them to make it to top three.

      @kevininbuffalo: There is nothing wrong with being a flamer, and if you want a “masc” gay entertainer to come out the closet and represent for you, good luck getting any of those closeted hollywood homos. The reason the flamers overrepresent is because they are more often out, and easier out. Masc gay guys (of which I normally count myself as a part of) should stop complaining and put up. If you want to “counterbalance” stereotypes, then go get some headshots, put together a portfolio and idea, and go make it happen instead of bitching about the success of the more flame-y types in showbiz.

      And another butch muscle queen would be reinforcing another stereotype. Guess what, we are ALL some sort of stereotype.

      I find interesting how some people continue enjoy tearing some folks down. Let me address the “Failed Pageant Winner”

      Alyssa Edwards

      Miss USofA 2006 – Won on her first attempt – only a few have successfully done this. Completed her reign.

      Miss Gay America 2010** Crowned in November Dethroned on January 1. No prelims missed. We all have our pros on cons when this occurs.

      Miss All American Goddess 2010 – Check the webpage http://www.allamericangoddess.com; She is listed a winner and former. “”She may not have completed her reign.

      Three national titles all before the age of 30…..hmmm failure – I seriously doubt it.

      For those that want to read me …..careful

      @kevininbuffalo: It’s so funny to read someone like you. I live in country with horrible level of homophobia, we have no openly gay people among celebrities here. And you have so many DIFFERENT out and proud stars. You have Zachary Quinto, you have Jason Collins now and so many others. And you’re moaning because some drag queen “re-enforce the Gay=effeminate stereotype”… Your’e pathetic.

      @kevininbuffalo: So what you’re saying here is that you appreciate diversity as much as the evangelical christians who want all of us to be “cured”.
      This comment sucks in so many ways it’s barely worth acknowledging, but the biggest way that it sucks is this: the whole point of the LGBT equality movement is so we can all have the freedom to be who we want to be without persecution from people who say “it’s not OK for you to be like this”. Well guess what? It’s perfectly OK to be a femme queen… and what’s more, it’s joyful and fantastic if that’s what makes you happy. The problem isn’t the femme queen who’s living her life and being fabulous, the problem is the bigots who treat her badly based on a non-existent stereotype of what being gay means. The answer to those bigots isn’t for us all to act straight and be just like them, it’s to be whoever we want to be and FIGHT THE REAL ENEMY. When we tell each other that it’s not OK to be who we are we’ve already lost.

      @kevininbuffalo: So what we need is more self-deprecation and maligning from within our own community to unite us and break down stereotypes? Good call.

      I see a reality show about her life. “Life with Alyssa” or something like that. And we go to Mesquite Texas to watch her run and operate her dance studio while still performing Drag on the side and handling her new found fame after Drag Race. Thats all grounds for a perfect premise. Plus , face it! She’s funny and charming. She’s funny even when she’s not trying to be. She’s serious half the time but its hilarious. She’s like the Jessica Simpson of gays. I would SO watch.
