Were you ready for Symone’s Allure photos? My pearls are still clutched!

The season 13 RPDR winner is not only cashing in fashion magazine checks but is also a spokesperson for @cashapp.

Taking that beauty to the bank!!!

Season 14- Willow Pill

A lot has changed for Willow Pill since winning RPDR14. “I think I need a big ego check.”

According to an interview with EW, Willow Pill is “thinking about phasing ‘a little bit out of drag’ and more into acting.”

Particularly, she wants to create more “absurd sketches and music” as well as evolve into more “disgusting” and “dirty” art.
