THEEEE queen of comedy, winner of RuPaul’s Drag Race, Season 6, Bianca Del Rio is about to hit the road again with her current show Blame It On Bianca Del Rio. After the HUGE success of her previous shows The Rolodex of Hate and Not Today Satan, the insult comic, who describes her style as “Very Joan Crawford/Bozo”, continues to kill it with her acerbic wit, insightful commentaries, and unabashed lambasting of pretty much everything and everyone…yeah…she’s kinda got an opinion! WOWlebrity Mx Qwerrrk caught up with Miss Del Rio right before she’s off to South America for a couple shows, and then her MEGA road trip across the U.S.A.. Check out their chat from QwerrrkOut below, about boys, assorted baloney, Donald Trump, and her new no-HOES-barred book Blame It On Bianca Del Rio: The Expert on Nothing with an Opinion on Everything (out May 29)…and get your tix HERE for her live show NOW…cause they ALWAYS sell out!

Mx Qwerrrk: Fave insult comic of all time?
Bianca: I love Don Rickles. He’s my ultimate! But, I love that side of Joan Rivers when would attack people.
Funniest drag queen, besides yourself?
Lady Bunny is retarded, in a good way! Jackie Beat, Sherry Vine, Varla Jean Merman and Coco Peru are all brilliantly funny. They know what they’re doing. It’s not some random bullshit, a lip sync or some death drop. It’s something you have to think about…which is something that’s missing from our drag scene today.
Fave nu school drag queen?
Myra DuBois, in London. She’s a rotted, hateful, nasty queen that makes me piss myself laughing! For the past few years, she’s opened for me when I’m in the UK.
Best place to see a drag queen in the wild?
Oh God…I never go out anymore! Maybe YouTube is the place to find them now…’cause you can’t rely on Instagram…because that’s a BIG FUCKING LIE! They look gorgeous in a photo, and HIDEOUS in person! And if you really wanna see their talents…XTUBE!!!
Best eyelash brand?
I order mine wholesale from E Eyelash…in bulk…as you can see.
Fave IG page?
Dublin_zoetrope. He does all this hateful stuff about Meryl Streep and Glenn Close..anything Hollywood or theater related…from Patti LuPone to Bernadette Peters. It makes me chuckle. If you’re a real fag, you’ll get it.
Fave RuPaul’s Drag Race season?
Past seasons 4, 5 and 6, I get very blurry. I don’t know who’s from what season, or what year it was. After I did the show…I have no fucking idea! Anytime you see Shangela, you’re like ‘What fucking season is this?’…I feel like I’m having a stroke! I loved Sharon Needles’ season (Season 4). She changed the game. It was also fun to see Jinkx Monsoon (Season 5) navigate through the process.
Best way to tame one’s inner saboteur?
I drink!!! That’s what fixes all my problems. People get wrapped up in their heads too much. Being now 42, the shit that bothered me doesn’t bother me anymore. I laugh at social media. Do you honestly think I fucking care?!?! You think somebody’s going to school me, on my page, about what I need to do with MY LIFE? I’m a man in a wig, doing comedy. It’s not fucking brain surgery!
What kind of boys do you like?
Looking at my past, I don’t have a type. Each one of my exes are very different..and I’ve only had three! I had a relationship two years ago, for a few months, that didn’t go well. I’ve been single for about 10 years. It’s worked out well for me. If I were in a relationship, I wouldn’t be able to do the things that I do. People are a little scared of me in general. I’m not that welcoming. I’m not evoking sexual appeal. With Detox and Adore Delano, people gravitate to them…they find them a little less threatening.
Did you really have a friend who shit in a date’s bed, then called you for help?
It’s TRUE!!! He was VERY upset when he found out. He didn’t know it was in the show. He was in the audience in a New York Show. I didn’t think that he would be there. My friend, that I originally told the story to, knew that he was there…which only made it funnier.
What’s different about this new show?
This show is me discussing things that I’m constantly blamed for. I have several friends who are usually sweet, and kind, and normal; but when they get around me, they say hateful and nasty things…and they say, ‘Oh my God, it’s you…you just bring it out in me!’ It’s scenarios that have happened in the world that I can easily blame myself for. I’ll take the blame. Unlike Trump, I’ll own it!
Is your forthcoming book an extension of the show?
It’s completely different. When I was approached to do a book, I didn’t want to do it about myself. My life is not that interesting…and I think it’s awfully egotistical to do a book about yourself…that’s fucking DUMB! So, I thought to do a help book. People always ask questions, and for my opinion, on social media…why not make it funny, and give my true, gut instincts and response. It’s not for the light-hearted. It’s hard truths, in a comedic way. GO EAT A FUCKING TIDE POD!!!
Has the current PC climate altered your act?
Not at all! Everybody now is a spiritual advisor. Like these people on IG who are completely naked, with a spiritual caption underneath the pic. It’s fucking HYSTERICAL! You’re a self-centered, fucking faggot who went to the gym and wants to show your fucking body…OWN IT, BITCH!!! I would have much more respect for that, than to say, ‘There needs to me more peace and unification in the world’. WE KNOW THAT MOTHERFUCKER!!! But, we don’t need to see you in your fucking panties to do it! That’s the world we live in. Everybody’s trying to do good. If you state your opinion, then you’re dividing the country. NO!!! We can have an opinion. It can be a heated discussion. There is no right or wrong in this. If people don’t have conversations, and maybe get offended for a minute, is anything gonna change? I don’t owe anybody ANYTHING!!! If you don’t like it, change the channel, don’t buy a ticket, don’t look at me.
Message to Donald Trump?
There’s never been a more REPULSIVE human being that I’ve ever witnessed in my life! It’s sad that he’s in charge of our country. He doesn’t belong in politics. He has no idea what he’s doing. He’s a national embarrassment! How do you expect him the run the White House?…he can’t even get his fucking hair right! He can’t find one, sensible fag to fix that FUCKING HAIR!!!
Do you need a pretty pig for your opening act? I can tap dance, Dab & ham it up!
Perfect! I LOVE IT!!!
