The Tale of Alyssa Edwards and Coco Montrese

If you’ve been keeping up with Season Five of Rupaul’s Drag Race, then you are probably annoyed that I’m even doing a post about these two queens. But with all the camera time these two hoes got, how couldn’t I?

From episode one these girls were at each other’s necks. Check out their reactions when they realized that they would be competing against each other. DRAMA BOMB! (Special thanks to worldofwonder.net and logotv.com for the video.)

The rivalry between the two seemed a little bit artificial and became stale very quickly. I was bored with the two before episode two even aired. But as time went on so did the feud. It seemed like the producers were scrambling for something to put on the air and unfortunately for us, this was the best they could do. Their fights were sporadic and way too intense to be believable. Also, their fights were affecting some of the other girls and their performances. Granted it is a competition and everyone should be focusing on themselves but these two were out of hand. Don’t get me wrong, I love drama and a good screaming match here and there, but this nonsense had to stop. Luckily in tonight’s episode one of the girls finally sashayed away, but was it the right one? (We’ll get into that in a bit)

For all you bad queens that have no idea what I’m talking about, one, shame on you and two, here’s a Rucap.

My Interpretation:
Alyssa and Coco are both pageant queens and competed against each other in numerous pageants. Even though they were competitors, they formed a friendship that eventually turned into a shit show. Alyssa and Coco were both in the running for 2010’s Miss Gay America. Aylssa was crowned the winner but didn’t live up to her contractual duties so the runner up, Coco, had to take over and Alyssa was stripped of her title, oh snap! Alyssa’s mad and feels betrayed, while Coco feels that the public thinks she stole the title from Alyssa. Lame right? With moments like these, I feel like some people never leave high school.

With all that said, when the bottom two was revealed in tonight’s episode, it left everyone gagging; mainly in relief that one of these bitches was finally going home and we’d finally find out who was the better queen. It was both their third time in bottom and one of them wasn’t gonna make it. Check out the fierce lip-sync for yourself:Here.

Who did you think deserved to go home?

Personally, I’m not a fan of Coco, I find her very manipulative, close-minded, and just a bitch and not in the good way. But unfortunately, Ru saw something more in Coco than Alyssa and sent Alyssa packing. It’s a sad day in the drag world, granted Alyssa wasn’t going to win, but she still was an amazing queen. She always tried her hardest and fell short a couple of times, but she never gave up. Plus she gave us some of the best sound bites from the show. I’m gonna miss that bitch.
