Kahanna Montrese Revealed Details About Feud With Heidi N Closet

The rift between Montrese and Heidi became a topic of intense speculation and fueled online debates. However, Montrese reveals that prior to the clash, they were actually close. They had even discussed the episode and their respective experiences during a viewing party at Roscoe’s.

It was an opportunity for Montrese to express her feelings and shed light on behind-the-scenes aspects of the show. Unfortunately, the conversation took an unexpected turn, resulting in a breakdown of communication and a significant misunderstanding between the two queens.

Acknowledging the individual perspectives that can arise during competition mode, Montrese emphasizes that she stands by her own experience while understanding that Heidi does the same. In an effort to mend the situation, Montrese privately reached out to Heidi and offered her apologies.


She made it clear that she does not condone violence and explained that her emotional state, combined with feeling silenced, had led to her outburst. Montrese takes responsibility for her role in the clash and expresses her sincere wishes for Heidi’s success. She firmly asserts that her personal feelings about the incident do not reflect her opinion of Heidi as a talented queen.

The aftermath of the clash also prompted Montrese to reflect on her own struggles and frustrations. In a tweet, she shared how she had been silenced and not taken seriously, reaching her breaking point and experiencing a dark period.

Montrese emphasized that no contestant on the show directly caused her emotional turmoil. Instead, it stemmed from the backlash she faced despite being genuinely proud of her performances.


The interview also sheds light on Montrese’s mindset during a crucial moment in the competition. When faced with an acting challenge, Montrese expressed her dissatisfaction, stating that the energy wasn’t right for her.

At that moment, she contemplated quitting the competition, feeling as though she had overstayed her welcome. The combined pressure of being in the bottom repeatedly, the nature of the challenge that limited her ability to shine, and the tensions with other contestants pushed her to her breaking point.

However, Montrese managed to snap herself out of it, realizing the significance of the opportunity she had been given and the growth she had achieved. She acknowledges that her desire to quit would have disappointed her past self from season 11, and she appreciates the journey she has undergone since then.
