    Why C.U.N.T. Energy is Critical (W/ Mijon Zulu, Jaron Barney, & Miss Vanity Love)

    Why C.U.N.T. Energy is Critical (W/ Mijon Zulu, Jaron Barney, & Miss Vanity Love)

    Drag this week taught that you need a lot C.U.N.T. Energy and that pussy had better be on fire if you want to beat Jasmine Kennedy in a lip-sync. Also, could queens just consider lowering our expectations and then wow us that talent? Controversial option, but wouldn’t it be nice to not see queens eat their words. On All Stars, we are here for Janey Jacké Ru-demption and Jimbo’s Mugler. That and literally anything these queens do on All Stars because they are what? SEASONED!!!!

    Dutch Brazilian drag artist Miss Vanity Love graces us with her presence and tells us about super cute queer spaces like CREA student cultural center -  a space for the art, in general, that is super inclusive. Then, all the way from Salt Lake City (for now), we are joined by actor, singer, and composer Jaron Barney! Jaron let us into the world of Salt Lake City’s mixed queer scene staples like Suntrap and Milk that just opened!  Then, we learn that this multi-threat artist has a Drag Queen Sister named Sequoia! The luck!  Be sure to check Sequoia’s monthly show in Ogden at WB on the first Sunday of every month if you are ever in the area! If that isn’t enough, Jaron just started a new company "Nonscents" an organic, genderless perfume oil to help fund his creative projects.

    About our guests:

    Jaron is a singer, actor, composer who lives in Harlem but is currently a vagabond while he travels as a performer. After touring as an actor with Broadway's Book of Mormon the musical, Jaron began working toward his new dream: writing music professionally. As a writer, Jaron is currently in pre-production for two original musicals and is working on his first studio release as a solo artist.  Jaron also recently launched a small business called Nonscents, which creates organic, genderless, perfume oils.

    Miss Vanity Love is a Dutch Brazilian drag artist inspired by all things glamour, burlesque, and the expression of femininity and creativity. She hosts, produces, and performs at several shows across Europe, spanning the Netherlands, Belgium, Austria, and Germany. Her projects vary in nature, from a geeky subculture of Queer Arcana (a Dungeons and Drag Queens youtube show), theatrical shows in Paradiso, Boom Chicago, to political documentaries such as the Drag Manifesto (nominated and winner of various prizes in film festivals across the world) and educational workshops. Kevin's aspirations (i.e. the guy behind the makeup) through Vanity is to uplift, inspire, and celebrate diversity and each other, continuously combating stigma and educating others while also putting on a fierce show.

    Power Bottom Energy, Injured Queens, and EurovisioNYC (w/ Mijon Zulu and Joey Sigona)

    Power Bottom Energy, Injured Queens, and EurovisioNYC (w/ Mijon Zulu and Joey Sigona)

    With much joy and sass, we are so happy to be joined by Joey Sigona from EurovisioNYC - an inclusive party that celebrates all things Eurovision all year long! Thank Ru, GJKoijman, Marco Dreijer and Adam Unze for forcing the Huntys to get into the Eurovision situation. Joey served the deets about his Eurovision parties in NYC and Chill Bar - a safe queer space that is creating some inclusive programming in the VERY cis-male gay area in Palm Springs. Kudos! Then, drag race. How relieved is everyone besides Kornbread that she has been tagged out early?. On the bright side, Bosco finally got to demonstrate why we should not put her and Orione Story in the same category just because they sometimes look the same. Thank Ru for bringing the trio of first eliminated queens who further demonstrated why season 14 might still need a little more fire and how Kamora Hall is trying to root for YOU! FINALLY, we return to the epic journey of Jujubee as she attempts to complete an infinity gauntlet of drag race seasons. UK vs The World serves some seasoned queen realness and we are all parched for this talent. Jimbo, so weird and so good. Pangina literally proves why she was a judge. And, Monique demonstrating singing for - to be real - everyone! But, where, I mean, WHERE IS THAT PRIZE MONEY????????

    About our guest:

    Joey is a Eurovision fan who contributes to a fan media outlet on the Eurovision-themed site: ESC-plus.com and their YouTube channel. When not tracking down the latest from artists in the Eurovision circles, he is working with his NY-based team to plan the NYC party: EurovisioNYC, where all the children under the spectrum celebrate their love for Eurovision's spirit, diversity, multi-culturalism, and music. The party is hallmarked by a mix of drag performance and a lip-sync showdown.

    Processing Chocolate Nonsense with the House of Mandell (W/ Mijon Zulu and Mancie Mandell)

    Processing Chocolate Nonsense with the House of Mandell (W/ Mijon Zulu and Mancie Mandell)

    Sometimes, if not all the time, we get it from our MAMA! That’s why we are super excited to talk to the powerhouse that is Mancie Mandell - the mother of Jasmine Kennedie. With a little bit of Honest Tea and L-O-V-E, Mama Mandell and I had a lovely kiki about her love of fashion, Gospel Drag, how she feels about the dress she made for Jasmine's runway this week, and lesser-known spots in Asbury Park, NJ. Then, it was on to the Drag Race! Why was Deja Skye so cocky after that lip sync? Jorgeous in THAT DRESS! These damn chocolate bars! What in the cavity?! Bosco was safe? Why Bling Empire? Also, June is a stylist. Ummmm…careful what you say!!!!!!

    About our guest:

    Mancie Mandell is a 28-year-old aspiring designer hailing all the way from Asbury Park, NJ. A former Miss Paradise 2019, she’s an entertainer in the nightlife, a pageant queen, and a part of that special sauce that brought us the lovely Jasmine Kennedie!

    A Questionable Talent Show and Breaking New Ground with "Straight" Drag (w/ Mijon Zulu and Jonah Kilday from the Queer Creative)

    A Questionable Talent Show and Breaking New Ground with "Straight" Drag (w/ Mijon Zulu and Jonah Kilday from the Queer Creative)

    Stop Everything. Who the F*@# are we? This is a day Whispering Huntys never thought would we happen! Our idol, our muse, our inspiration Jonah Kilday is in the Hunty House! Jonah is a queer creative and the co-host of The Queer Creative podcast, which is basically the drag mom to Whispering Huntys and so many queer creatives around the world. Getting a chance to talk about queer creativity and the growth that phenomenal podcast was such a dream! Whispering Huntys is honored and grateful, but also SERIOUSLY underwhelmed by episode 2 of season 14! Why was Alicia Keys in a box? What was Deja Skye’s cheer presentation about? What song was Maddy Morphosis trying to play? And, what was the rest? If we are going to have a talent show there needs to be more talent than just lipsyncing because we all know that lipsyncing the house-down-boots is a requirement for simply walking through the door. Or, at least, it was until now. Thank God-Ga, Angeria Paris VanMicheals served us some sweet tea.

    About our guest:

    Jonah Kilday is an Interior Designer and co-founder of MK Workshop a boutique design studio in Brooklyn, NY & Austin, TX. He co-hosts a podcast titled The Queer Creative with Renessa Ciampa where they interview queer creatives from all backgrounds about their work, struggle, and hustle.

    Rocket to the Ship to the Wind on the Wind As Long As Its Couture (W/ Mijon Zulu, Kali Tripodis and Savannah Couture)

    Rocket to the Ship to the Wind on the Wind As Long As Its Couture (W/ Mijon Zulu, Kali Tripodis and Savannah Couture)

    Undergarments everywhere, a talent show debut,  jerking or twerking or improv, Kerri Colby’s face, and all the Kornbread. Season 14 is back and it feels so right! We still don’t know what Willow Pill did, but thank-the-Evie-Oddly it happened. We kick off this week with The-Bachelor-and-Drag- Race obsessed Kali Tripodis. Kali hosts the ultimate Bachelor after show Trashler and brings all her hot takes to the yard. If that is not enough, we have the one and only Savannah Couture - Drag daughter and real-life sibling of Isis Couture - fresh from the emotional journey that has been the seriously fierce Ottawan drag taking over the world. Who are we? Get ready. We are going to deep dive into La Pusetta, Olivia Rodrigo, Gaga, and more shade than anyone deserves.

    Kali Tripodis is a comedy writer, performer, and Lady Gaga historian. She lives in New York and loves to perform improv, sketch, and of course, karaoke.

    Serving you cotton candy bubblegum princess, Savannah Couture is the perfect sugary sweet sensation. The only thing sweeter than her looks is Savannah herself! She has been performing drag for many years and is one of Ottawa's favourite queens in the drag scene. She starred in season 2 of CBC's Canada's A Drag with her drag mother/sister Icesis Couture and is a headline performer at The Lookout Bar, as well as many other popular venues in and around Ottawa. She’s even toured across the country opening up for your favourite RuPaul’s Drag Race queens! This is one galactical barbie NOT to miss!
