Atlanta queen hits bottom on ‘Drag Race’

Add this share

Sassy defiance with a side of attitude works well for reality TV, but it's wearing thin with the judges and castmates of Atlanta queen Trinity K. Bonet on “RuPaul's Drag Race.”

The claws came out last week as a rivalry between Bonet and Bianca Del Rio got testy. It continued on Monday's “Shade: The Rusical” episode. Bonet came out on the losing end, lip synching for her life after guest judge Sheryl Lee Ralph told Bonet to put a cork in it – literally – and put an end to her contempt for feedback from the judges.

As Bonet makes clear this week, sometimes with contempt, indifference or attitude, she's not a singer or an actor. She's got an errant flipper, too.

“I'm a lip sync artist. I am a drag queen. I like heavy makeup, big hair, fake tits, lots of jewelry,” Bonet says in the clip above. And very nearly no longer a “Drag Race” contestant.
