Bob the Drag Queen has revealed that she didn’t even get a call to appear on RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars 7 and we are gooped!

Speaking on a recent episode of her podcast, Sibling Rivalry, which she hosts with season 10 queen and All Stars 7 contestant, Monét X Change, Bob said she had been completely free and available but just didn’t get an invite.

The first-ever all-winners season of Drag Race was announced last week with eight former winners from Drag Race, All Stars, and Drag Race UK taking to the werkroom. 

“I literally just did not get a call”

Discussing a tweet from season 6 winner, Bianca Del Rio which had said she was “busy” and therefore not appearing on the show, Bob addressed her own absence from the line-up. 

“I want everyone to know I was not busy. I literally just did not get a call. They did not reach out to me. So I want everyone to know: I was free as a bird with its tail in the breeze. I was helping Monét get ready, actually,” Bob said.

Bob also cast some subtle shade in an Instagram post giving some serious side-eye as she went over the All Stars 7 announcement.

She also tweeted following the announcement: “Imagine my shock this morning.”

As well as Monét, Jaida Essence Hall, Jinkx Monsoon, Raja, Shea Couleé, The Vivienne, Trinity ‘The Tuck’, and Yvie Oddly will compete for the title of ‘Queen of Queens’ in the new series.

We’re as surprised as many other fans were that Bob wasn’t even given an invitation to the ball, but we’re sure she’ll be high up on the list for an inevitable second all-winners series!

The Attitude May/June issue featuring the cast of Heartstopper is out now.
