While preparing for the Lady Bunny roast tribute, Manila Luzon and Naomi Smalls shared a very real moment. Smalls asked Manila if she had ever spoken at a funeral before. If you recall, Luzon’s former partner and Season 2 Drag Race alum Sahara Davenport passed away in 2012 due to heart failure.
“I didn’t speak at Sahara’s funeral because I didn’t know how to. I wasn’t ready,” Manila revealed.
When Manila asked the same question to Naomi, the leggy drag queen replied, “I spoke at my brother Dylan’s funeral, he was two years older than I was.” She added, “This was when I was 22, so he was 24 when he passed. He was one of my biggest fans ever. He was mentally challenged and I was always very defensive and protective over that.”
Watch the touching moment below. The fact this was cut makes me weary of Smalls and Luzon’s chances of taking the All-Stars S4 crown. If either had won this season, I’m certain producers would’ve kept this in since it casts a very sympathetic light on both queens. Agree or disagree? Weigh in below.
