Heidi N Closet Reveals Why She Stayed on ‘Drag Race All Stars’ After Threatening to Leave
Heidi N Closet, the beloved season 12 alum and winner of Miss Congeniality, recently made headlines when she threatened to quit RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars 8. However, in an interview, Heidi reveals why she ultimately decided to stay in the competition despite facing challenges and disappointment.
Heidi N Closet On Why She Stayed On The Show
Heidi explains that her decision to stay on the show was influenced by a combination of factors, some of which occurred off-camera. Despite not receiving a top placement from the judges for her impressive performance in the Supermarket Ball challenge, Heidi believed she still had more to show the world.
She mentions that the day she contemplated quitting was particularly rough and emotional, compounded by the departure of fellow competitor Mrs. Kasha Davis, with whom she had developed a close bond. During Untucked, Heidi opened up to Kandy Muse about her inclination to leave the competition, expressing her frustration at the lack of recognition for her talent. However, she continued filming the episode despite her announcement.
Heidi reveals that she was going through personal issues and felt a lack of support, as the show takes contestants away from their usual support systems. She had also experienced difficult family situations and had faced dangerous incidents in the past, contributing to her emotional state.
In a tantalizing teaser for the upcoming episode, Heidi promises to expose secrets that could significantly impact the competition. She hints at “betrayal, heartbreak, denial,” and “delusion” being at the heart of the tea she has to spill.
First Look at RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars 8 Reveals Who’s Safe
Last week’s episode of RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars left fans hanging, particularly during the revealing moments of All Stars Untucked. Heidi N Closet had declared that she was done with the competition after failing to win or secure a top placement in the ball challenge. In a fortunate turn of events, Heidi showed her determination to remain in the competition despite all the challenges.
But that’s not the only revelation in this exciting 12-minute clip. We also learn that it was a close call as we discover the number of queens who voted for Darienne’s elimination instead of Mrs. Kasha Davis. Having landed in the bottom twice, Darienne is fully aware that she has a target on her back going into the fourth challenge.
Additionally, we witness last week’s winner, Jessica Wild, addressing the safe queens who believed they should have snatched the victory. Wild approaches the situation in her signature endearing manner, leaving no room for anger or resentment. Even Kahanna Montrese and Jaymes Mansfield, who had their hearts set on the win, can’t be mad at Wild.
