RuPaul has officially confirmed they have filmed Drag Race All Stars 4.

The fourth edition of the all stars edition will be on our screens in 2019.

While not officially announced by World of Wonder or VH1, it is likely we will get a repeat of this year’s schedule.

All Stars 3, which was won by Trixie Mattel, began airing in 25 January.

Season 10 began airing on 22 March, a week after All Stars ended.

But while we don’t have an airing date, Mama Ru has revealed she has gone ‘crazy’ on coffee.

During an episode of her podcast What’s The T, she revealed she went on a caffeine fuelled rant during All Stars 4.

‘You’ll see the episode where he had…16 shots of espresso,’ co-judge Michelle Visage said.

‘I’ve known Ru for 30 years. I just sat there and let her have her fun. Screaming at the top of her lungs. ‘

Ru responded: ‘We won’t tell them which episode because we don’t want to give away…see if they can figure it out.

‘This is for All Stars, and everyone knows that we’re doing All Stars. We’re not giving anything away. Let them guess which episode I go friggin’ crazy on.’

Queens were ‘shitting their pants’

Michelle said you know the queens were ‘shitting their pants’ during the rant.

‘They did not know what the fuck [was going on,’ she added.

‘The whole set!’ Ru responded.

Michelle continued: ‘I’ve known you like that before. That’s like old Ru. I’ve seen that before. Ross [Matthews] was literally like [makes noise to suggest cowering in fear].’

Ru concluded:  ‘I was jacked on java’.

In an interview with Gay Star News, season 1 winner and All Stars 3 finalist Bebe Zahara Benet gave us a withering take down when we asked about the ‘lip stick’.

Also in the interview, she spoke about why she believes drag should be inclusive of cis women and drag kings.

She said: ‘I think aspects of drag have changed over time. Therefore, I was just saying, even I don’t like being referred to as a drag queen. Not that there’s anything wrong with the words drag queen. The only reason is because I feel it has evolved. The art of drag has evolved.

‘It’s become so inclusive. A lot of artists are using that to enhance their careers. If you can embrace and celebrate it, and create some aspects of illusion and entertainment, then yeah, go for it honey! Doesn’t matter who you are, just do it well. Make sure you respect the craft, and respect the creative process.’
