Latrice Royale easily won Miss Congeniality on Season 4 of RuPaul’s Drag Race. But with such strong competition on All Stars, Latrice and Team Latrila member Manila, were sent home before winning the ultimate crown. No matter, this fierce queen will continue making others EAT IT for years to come, All Stars title or not. Latrice took some time out of her busy travel schedule to answer some of our questions via email.
CGM Why am I talking to you right now? You’re one of the strongest & sweetest contestants! Do you think you could’ve done anything differently to stay in the competition?
Latrice Royale: Absolutely not!! Lol.. I mean we were the second highest scoring team. They seemed to be more focused on my eye shadow and chains. Moral of the story is, when your time is up, your time is up.
CGM You seemed to really connect with Manila, even though she kept sending you into that garbage can for the smallest items possible. Were you happy with your team?
Latrice Royale: Lol.. I know right? But yes I was thrilled with my team. Seriously Manila and I have grown into great friends, which totally made the entire experience worth while.
CGM What are you doing next?
Latrice Royale: Well as they say.. On to Bigger and Better… I feel that it’s very important to give back so my next project has to do with making a difference in the lives of others. My new family in South Africa need us. I will be working on a pretty big project to shine some light on some international new hopefuls.
CGM Where can people see you?
Latrice Royale: Because of my intense travel schedule, in a city/town near you. I am rarely at my home bars in South Beach and Wilton Manors. But when I am home you can catch me at the Palace Bar SoBe, and Boom in Wilton Manors.
