With so many talented queens across a number of social media networks, it can be difficult keeping up with them all! Some queens are better than other at responding to fans, but Willam is one of, if not the best at it. He is constantly responding to nearly all the questions he receives via his Tumblr. If you don't follow it, you're definitely missing out. We recapped some of his best Q&A's back in October, but he's been spilling so much T that we had to share again...
WHAT DO YOU CONSIDER YOUR GREATEST ACCOMPLISHMENT?
Working with Ryan Murphy professionally just barely trumps 'Boy Is A Bottom' being at almost 13 Million views.
DO YOU GET NERVOUS BEFORE YOU PERFORM (BOTH IN GENERAL AND DURING THE LIP-SYNC FOR YOUR LIFE ON RPDR SEASON 4)?
Ha. No Nerves. In fact, Jiggly’s dress broke and I actually took a safety pin outta mine to fix hers right before we lip-synced. No one was helping her and I did the best I could and pinned it into her hair and dress. We knew it was us cause they weren’t gonna let Latrice lip-sync cause she would Have embarrassed herself in that dress since it didn’t fit ('cause we weren’t eating normally). We were mad the song was lame. YES, Pam Tillis. I said IT. WE FUCKING HATED DANCING AROUND TO YOUR TWO STEP ASS SONG! (But it was lovely meeting you and I respect the body of your work as an entertainer and love your Dad’s music.)
WOULD YOU RATHER GET FISTED BY MIKE TYSON OR LOSE YOUR FIGURE WITHOUT BEING ABLE TO REGAIN SUCH A NICE ASS EVER AGAIN?
TYSON IN MY HOLY FIELD ANY DAY, BRO. I’LL TAKE IT.
HOW DID YOU GET INTO ACTING? WHAT TALENT AGENCY DID YOU GO WITH?
MY FIRST AGENCY WAS DRAGON TALENT AND THEY DROPPED ME 3 WEEKS BEFORE I BOOKED ROCK OF AGES AND NIP/TUCK (BOOKED THEM BOTH ON THE SAME DAY- JUNE 29TH 2005). I GOT INTO ACTING AT THE BOTTOM DOING EXTRA WORK, GOT SAG CARD ON FIRST JOB AT 16 AND THEN STARTED GETTING UPGRADES ON SET TO CO-STAR ROLES AND IT KINDA SNOWBALLED FROM THERE. I DON’T KNOW IF I’VE BEEN MORE LUCKY OR GOOD BUT SOMETHING CLICKED.
Are you into any of the seasons of American Horror Stories?
All of them. When I was filming The New Normal at Paramount, I walked right by Jessica Lange all nun’d up on her cell phone. It’s my favorite lot cause it has all the Ryan Murphy shows.
WHAT ARE YOUR OPINIONS ON DIVINE AND HER WORKS?
LOVE! Detox and I met John Waters at the airport in Brussels and he remembered me from 'Ticked-Off Trannies With Knives'. It was amazing!
DID YOU DO THE SPIN-OFF OF THE GAME SHOW ('DRAG U') VOLUNTARILY OR WAS IT A CONTRACTUAL OBLIGATION?
WHY DO PEOPLE THINK I HATE DRAG RACE? I DON’T. SOME OF THE PEOPLE INVOLVED? HATE - NAH.... MAYBE DISDAIN FOR THEIR PAST LIES AND INDISCRETIONS WITH ME. BUT ONCE AGAIN - INDIFFERENT. IT WAS A GIG. I DID IT. DONE. 'DRAG U' I DID BECAUSE SOMEONE WHO WAS SUPPOSED TO DO IT DIDN’T PASS THEIR BACKGROUND CHECK.... HAHAHA - BETCHA CAN’T GUESS WHO!
WHAT'S YOUR NEW SHOW 'WORK MOM' LIKE AND WHEN WILL IT BE OUT?
I found out today ABC Family did not pick it up. :( BUT I did just get the word that I’m going to be hosting a show for probably the channel I’ve watched most in my life. News soon!
DO YOU HAVE ANY SPECIFIC WORKOUT ROUTINE FOR YOUR LEGS/BUTT?
30 DAY SQUAT CHALLENGE, 30 MINUTES OF RUNNING OR ELLIPTICAL 5 TIMES A WEEK, AND I DANCE A LOT. (I HAVE NO RHYTHM, BUT I HAVE FUN!)
WHAT IS ALL THIS STUFF I SEE ABOUT RPDR BEING FAKE?
DETOX AND I REALIZED SOMETHING. BEING GOOD AT DRAG IS HELPFUL ON RPDR BUT BEING GOOD AT DRAG RACE IS A WHOLE ‘NOTHER THING. AFTER SHARON WALKED IN I CLOCKED THAT IT WAS NOT A FAIR PROCESS 100% (SHE GOT TO FILM HER ENTRANCE TWICE AND WHEN I ASKED TO DO MINE AGAIN SINCE SHE WAS ALLOWED TO, I WAS DENIED.) IT WAS DISHEARTENING, BUT I DID THE BEST THING I COULD’VE DONE FOR MYSELF. I BROKE EVERY RULE I COULD AND ADMITTED IT TO PRODUCERS EACH TIME. WHEN THAT STILL DIDN’T GET ME KICKED OFF, I INVOLVED THE OTHER GIRLS UNTIL ONE OF THEM (YOU KNOW WHO…) CRIED FOUL AND FORCED THE HAND OF THE PRODUCERS. (I THINK THAT THAT IS WHAT HAPPENED ANYWAY.) IT COULDN’T HAVE GONE BETTER! ;)
ARE YOU AND YOUR HUSBAND STILL TOGETHER, OR ARE YOU IN AN OPEN RELATIONSHIP?
We are together and our relationship is our relationship. The person they showed by the way when the reunion was happening while I was talking (they cut to some random stranger in the audience while I was talking about him like it WAS him) is not my dude. They asked for him to come. He wouldn’t. He could smell the bullshit. He was like “I’m not gonna sit there while you lie. I’ll laugh.”
What's your favorite recent drag performance?
Alaska doing I Will Always Love You getting pissed on and Ongina doing Halo on Christmas Eve 4 years ago rank pretty high. Erica doing her Glamorous Life mix always got me running from backstage to see too.
WHAT'S THE STRANGEST THING A GAY HAS DONE AROUND YOU AT A CLUB?
A “GAY” FUCKED ME IN THE ASS WHILE HE ATE ARBY’S THAT HE GOT ON A DONKEY AT A DRIVE THOUGH (THEY SAY ONLY CARS WILL BE SERVED AND NO WALK-UPS BUT THE DONKEY WAS A LOOPHOLE). IT WAS ALSO A LUNAR ECLIPSE. OR A SOLAR ECLAIR. SOMETHING.
WHEN CAN WE EXPECT TO SEE THE NEW DWV VIDEO?
