EXCLUSIVE: DiDa Ritz Talks ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’

The lovely DiDa

DiDa Ritz was the latest queen to go home on RuPaul’s Drag Race after having a little bit of trouble with the whole political debate aspect of this week’s competition. We chatted with the lovely DiDa and learned she has no regrets about what happened on the show, and is more than ready to come back and do it all over again.

So it seems like it was the politics that got you.
I know. Politics is not my thing. I think politics and religion are things that you keep personal and as a drag queen my job is to entertain and make people have fun and feel better about themselves, and politics and religion just make things too serious.

Did you enjoy your time on the show?
I loved my time on the show, I would do it all over again. It gave me a thicker skin and it revamped my drag. I thank Ru every time I see her. I feel powerful and I feel like I have a voice after doing the show.

Now that you are getting more opportunities because of the show, are there any things you are hoping to do?
I would love to be a fashion designer. And I would LOVE to be a Vegas showgirl and have a show like that. I am a huge fan of Beyonce and I do her a lot in my act and have always looked up to her. I would also love to be on Dancing With the Stars as I love to dance. My head is just filled with all these ideas.

How long have you been doing drag, as you were one of the youngest in the group?

It will be five years next month.

Did you get along with the other girls or was there an age gap?
I really got along with all the girls, especially the final six: Sharon [Needles], Willam, Phi Phi [O’Hara], Latrice [Royale] and Chad [Michaels].

So who do you think has the best chance of winning?
I kind of feel like Sharon. She is so clever in everything she does and she is so brave and has such a unique look.

And would you come back for All Stars: RuPaul’s Drag Race if asked?
I would most definitely do All Stars. Things like that I love. I love challenges.
