‘RuPaul’s’ Coco Montrese burns up Burkhart’s

Add this share

The latest “RuPaul’s Drag Race” queen to hit Atlanta like a fierce storm is none other than Season 5’s controversial Coco Montrese. She warned us personally that she wouldn’t hold back. She didn't.

Crowds on Thursday and Friday at Burkhart’s got to see the high-energy TV personality (top photo) in action. On Friday, she mixed it up with fellow Ru girls Phoenix and Mariah and the rest of the cast of the Fab Five and guests.

Montrese is just the latest Drag Race alum to hit Burkhart’s, following in the footsteps of Serena ChaCha, Morgan McMichaels, Shangela, Raven, Sonique and Shannel. (Click to view photos from their appearances.).
