FOF #2025 – Viva Vivacious

One of the most memorable entrances on any reality TV show was on RuPaul’s Drag Race, when Vivacious entered the workroom sporting a second head made from a foam wig stand.

Listen as we talk with Vivacious about why she was so flabbergasted being around RuPaul, the extended family of Ornacia and why she prefers to perform in the crowd instead of the stage.
