Interviewing RDR Star Penny Tration

I first chatted with drag diva Penny Tration on Twitter when she was heavy into her campaign to be voted onto RuPaul’s Drag Race last season. Of all the girls she definitely fired her publicity guns at anyone in range more than most from what I could tell. It paid off! Penny made it to L.A. being cast in the highly competitive season 5. I wanted to chat with her then but being a good Doll…

WHO WINs RUPAUL’S DRAG RACE 5?

Good Morning! Quick apologizes for not really knocking out something new here at IAM as of late but things have been quite busy. Our gay popular culture is just buzzing today. It’s almost too much for one gay man to handle! I’ve actually sat back and enjoyed this season of RuPaul’s Drag Race and haven’t blogged too much about the show other than publishing three fierce interviews with Top 5 Doll Coco Montrese, talented through her dancing toes Alyssa Edwards and darling Ladykin Jade Jolie. …

PALM SPRINGS WHITE PARTY EXTREME 2013

To all of my circuit brothers and sisters, I’m assuming you know that Jeffrey Sanker’s annual musclefest dance party White Party is flooding the town March 29 -31, 2013. I’ve lived here in the Valley for a good decade and have seen only a few of the White Party events but the one’s that I have been part of set me free, turned me out and made me always want more! Not sure if I’ll make this year’s festivities but here’s the lowdown and the round o’fun…

ULTIMATE GRAND SUPREME – ALYSSA EDWARDS

When the new cast for RuPaul’s Drag Race was announced I knew it would be one crazy ride! There were plenty of hungry newcomers dressed in heels I had never heard of but there were a few seasoned professionals who I knew would bring the noise. I was right! Front and center is pageant puss Alyssa Edwards showing how and why she has made such an impact in the competition world of pageantry. …

JADE JOLIE – MAKING A SUPERSTAR

Jade Jolie. Just seeing or saying the words conjures images of ultimate glamour and sheer grandness. I’ve had this wonderful interview with Jade sitting patiently in my MacBook but wanted to hold off until the season premiere of Drag Race to publish it at the request of her team. I just got the OK and here we are with my first interview from the season five Dolls of RuPaul’s Drag Race. Since she was in L.A. for the premiere party at The Abbey, …

ALL AMERICAN GODDESS 2012 ASIA T. O’HARA

I love it when an established entertainer trusts me enough and respects what I’m doing here on my blog to offer some of their precious time and wisdom so I may in turn share the Tea your way. We all want to know the real deal, right?! I’ve had strong voices in the drag community speak to me here at my domain and my next guest is no different. …

THE ALISA SUMMERS INTERVIEW

With season 5 of RuPaul’s Drag Race arriving over the television landscape in the near future (rumor has it they are currently filming in L.A.) I was wondering how a few of our eliminated Dolls from last season were doing after seeing themselves on the show, how their careers have changed and what’s next for them. Florida-based Alisa Summers was the first Ladykin to depart last set of laps. …

THE ROYALITY OF LATRICE ROYALE

When I first met Latrice Royale in Ft. Lauderdale many moons ago I knew she was destined for great things. Our circle of friends intertwined during my living adventures in South Florida late 90s and we casually hung out a few times before I moved away to L.A. She has always been outspoken and outlandish but I believe it was appearing on season four of RuPaul’s Drag Race that gave her a true voice…

WHO WON DRAG RACE SEASON 4 ON LOGO TV?

Getting right into it, I thought the stage from last evening’s Ru-union of RuPaul’s Drag Race was quite grand. I wish the show itself would have lived up to the grandeur. As many of us know, Madame RuPaul herself dragged us right up until the very end of the final season’s episode announcing that the winner would be revealed at the reunion show the following week on Logo TV. …

LATRICE ROYALE SPEAKS TO HER FANS!

That’s my girl! L-U-V the Doll, Latrice Royale. I’m waiting ever so patiently on answers to interview questions I hope she has time to answer during her hectic schedule of travel and stardom. Will post them as soon as I can… I know that we, her fans, want to know the hard hitting answers on what her life is like now with the show propelling her into another fierce success story, …
