'RuPaul's Drag Race': Fake or real? Fans divided over the genuine intent of Asia's comment on 'weakest link' Naomi
It's only been two episodes of 'RuPaul's Drag Race: Vegas Revue' and the drama has escalated. Derrick Barry, Naomi Smalls, and Asia O'Hara have taken centerstage, created an interesting storyline of the three of them together in it. It's evident that the tension is not going away anytime soon. But credit must be given where it's due. It all started when Derrick decided to re-introduce a past that Naomi may have brushed under the carpet.
As the ladies rehearsed for their opening night at Flamingo, Las Vegas, Derrick arranged for a get-together where she also invited her partner Nebraska Thunderfuck. Naomi and Nebraska share a bitter past and Derrick is aware of it but everyone was hoping it would go smoothly but it didn't when Asia lost her cool, questioned Nebraska about why she was hanging out with the queens.
Derrick made herself clear, explained that she only wanted her work friends to be pally with her partner but Naomi couldn't care less. At this point, it seemed Asia was cheering for Naomi and was on her team but the tone has clearly changed with time. Tonight, we see Derrick confronting Asia about her comment on Naomi and her being the "weakest link." Asia denied having said that and left the scene in rage.
Meanwhile, fans are loving the drama but at the same time confused if Asia and Naomi's tiff is real.
“who is the weakest link and why?” yeah, the producers totally didn’t orchestrate that," a fan commented on a Reddit thread, while another shared: "Not Asia fully telling Naomi she was the weakest link to her face and then denying it in front of everyone in the worst way!!! Lol, Stan Asia anyways I live for her ability to create drama. Her Naomi and Derrick are my faves werk, yes sis. Stir that pot."
"That was some Raven “I never said that” realness," a user shared on the same discussion thread. "The drama is so forced I can’t tell what’s real. I know Asia recently posted that she had a falling out with a friend on this show and people thought it’s Naomi. So maybe that was real or just her hyping it up idk," another pointed out.
