Willam Tossed Off ‘Ru Pauls Drag Race’ For ‘Violating Contract’?
ly after Willam — who was actually the winner of the night’s fremeny challenge, alongside partner Latrice Royale — came back to the front of the stage that — SPOILER ALERT — it was revealed that she was being disqualified from the show. “It has come to my attention that you have broken the rules,” RuPaul told Willam. “Your actions have consequences, and I’m afraid I have no choice.”
There were several very odd parts to the whole episode-ending sequence: Just minutes before this shocking revelation, Willam took a moment to step to the edge of the runway and puke — in front of her fellow contestants and the judging panel. (Disqualified because she barfed in public?) And then, after she was kicked off the show, there was no explanation about what rules she had broken, by her or RuPaul or anyone connected with the show.
In fact, Willam seemed flip about the whole situation. “I broke the rules,” she said on the episode, before rubbing her butt on the mirror in the workroom where she also left a goodbye message for her fellow contestants, “but I’m a big boy dressed in big girls clothes. Regrets kind of like a fool’s game. I can’t change anything that I did, and there’s no point in dwelling on it.” The good news? Phi Phi O’Hara and — bless, bless, bless! — Sharon Needles are safe.
But — like you — we here at EW are still confused about what, exactly, happened. Which is why we checked in with Willam herself to see what she had to say about the night’s events. She’s just as cagey as you might expect — and the answers are still very unclear, outside of the realization that this is all likely just a big publicity ploy for her and her new single — but read on to hear Willam talk about last night, her portrayal on the show, who she’s rooting for now, and what she’ll be shilling next.
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: So, everyone will be dying to know: What happened with the disqualification?
WILLAM BELLI: Oh, f—, I didn’t win?
You’re pulling the funny here, but what really happened?
What do you think I did?
I don’t know — you were barfing there on the runway. Are you bulimic and that’s against the rules?
Here’s the thing: I had an abortion. The anesthesia just made me sick. I will say this: I wasn’t caught doing anything. Everything that I did, I admitted and I brought to everyone’s attention.
Why do you have to be cryptic about what happened on last night’s episode?
Oh, no, no — not at all. We don’t have to be cryptic. It’s my choice. I want people to keep tuning in. Maybe watch me at the reunion.
So, we’ll find out what happens at the reunion?
Yeah, or maybe everyone should write into the network and say, “We want Willam — give him his own show!” Or, some bulls— like that, “Put him on Drag U!” That kind of crap.
Presume it was because of this, which was released onto Youtube yesterday.
