The world premiere of Hurricane Bianca: From Russia With Hate was held at the Downtown Independent theater in L.A. on Sunday night, and the extravaganza event not only included the first screening of the new movie, but afterwards there was a Q&A hosted by Ms. Kasha Davis with the film’s stars, Bianca Del Rio, Shangela, Darienne Lake, Katya all in attendance, along with the movie’s writer, Derek Hartley, and director Matt Kugelman.
During the Q&A, Bianca is asked who she would like to see in the third—and final—Hurricane Bianca movie and all she said was, “Miss Vaaanjie,” quoting Vanessa Vanjie Mateo’s now legendary exit from RuPaul’s Drag Race, and who should appear in the audience? Miss Vanjie, herself!
“I heard my name!,” the Season 10 queen shouted as the audience went wild.
Miss Vanjie then sashayed onto the stage telling the audience to “get these cookies.”
“I heard my name three times! Hocus pocus, b*tch!”
Luckily, an audience member recorded the fun moment and posted on Instagram.
Will the ghost of Miss Vanjie follow the queens to the other Hurricane Bianca screenings this week? Who knows, but for now watch Bianca conjure up Miss Vanjie in the video below.
Hurricane Bianca: From Russia With Hate will be released on streaming platforms worldwide on May 18, and the cast will be appearing at screenings in various U.S. cities this week leading up to its digital release.
RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 10 airs Thursdays at 8/7c on VH1.
