RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 11 news
It looks like Season 11 of RuPaul’s Drag Race is getting a little love from Jersey girls — two of them actually. Honey Davenport and Ariel Versace have been announced as cast members of the upcoming Season 11 cast (premiere date to be announced).
Honey Davenport is the current Miss Paradise, and is a former Miss’d America. Miss’d America is an annual pageant held at the Borgata in Atlantic City. She has a weekly drag show at Paradise in Asbury Park on Friday nights. It is called A Taste Of Honey and has been wowing the crowds with her electric performances and eye popping fashions. She has featured some Drag Race sisters from previous seasons in the show. Dida Ritz (Season 4) Vivacious (Season 6) and Mystique Summers (Season 2) all have taken the stage at A Taste Of Honey this past year.
Honey davenport has a pedigree that includes being the drag mother of Season 10 Miss Congeniality Monet X Change and the drag niece of both the dearly departed Sahara Davenport (Season 2) and Kennedy Davenport (Season 7/All Stars 3). We will have to wait and see if Honey is the sweetest Davenport of all to hit the Drag Race workroom.
Ariel Versace has long been rumored to appear on RuPaul’s Drag Race. With polish only matched by her professionalism, Ariel Versace is poised to make a splash this season. Her New Jersey roots run deep. She has been a frequent guest at Paradise, placing as first runner up in the Miss Paradise pageant several years ago.
She also is part of the Vixens of Vera Drag Brunch in Cherry Hill, New Jersey, which has been selling out consistently since its inception. Along with partner Chastity St. Cartier, Versace is behind Drag by Chariel, which specializes in truly outstandingly crafted hairpieces for fellow queens. This girl is a pro on and off the stage, and can lip sync a pop anthem with the best of them.
It will be interesting to see how this East Coast stunner, Ariel Versace, meshes with her sisters from all over the nation on RuPaul’s Drag Race.
