Every fan of ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’ would know how much Trixie Mattel adores Dolly Parton. The drag queen, in fact, donned the look of her favorite country singer while she was competing in season 3 of ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars’. As it turns out, the feeling of appreciation is mutual between the two as Dolly declared Trixie as one of her favorite impersonators.

Fans were puzzled with Trixie’s absence from the episode on ‘RuPaul’s Secret Celebrity Drag Race’ with the Dolly Parton theme and her cameo. Considering Trixie is also a part of the show as the mentor for the celebrities, fans wondered why she wasn’t on the episode. Trixie has already appeared on the pilot episode of the show and mentored ‘Riverdale’ star Jordan Connor, who went on to win the title of ‘Celebrity Drag Queen’.

A fan tweeted, “Why did they put Trixie on the snatch game episode and not on the Dolly Parton one?? #CelebDragRace.” Another fan wrote, “They finally do a Dolly Rusical and  #trixiemattel wasn't invited!?! #CelebDragRace.”

Fans began wondering if drag race was shading their alum.

“The shade drag race pulled when they didn’t give @trixiemattel  the Dolly episode #CelebDragRace,” a fan commented. “Making it a Dolly themed episode AFTER Trixie was on the show is one hell of a move WoW #CelebDragRace,” echoed another fan.



 

Fans also began wondering how Trixie felt about it. A fan shared, “I wonder how @trixiemattel feels not being on the Dolly inspired episode #CelebDragRace.” Another fan expressed, “Trixie after finding out she wasn't on the Dolly Parton themed episode where Dolly literally sent a personalized video for the show #CelebDragRace.” “You know Trixie is shook that she was one episode away from Dolly #CelebDragRace,” commented a fan. Another fan tweeted, “DOLLY PARTON???? I'm calling it: Secret Celebrity Drag Race is the best spinoff EVAH too bad poor @trixiemattel was a week earlier than her mommy #CelebDragRace #DragRace.”  “Ok so they made Trixie coach snatch game and not the rusical ABOUT A DOLLY PARTON MOVIE #CelebDragRace,” pointed out a fan.
