Did Phi Phi O'Hara Quit Drag?

This season of RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars has us SHOOK!

We're feeling so many things at once, we don't know whether to pop an Advil, Xanax, or Dramamine!

If you're tuned into the Drag Race universe, you know there's a lot going on. Following the exit of fan favorite Adore Delano, cosplay queen extraordinaire, Phi Phi O'Hara, has emerged as this season's villain. Whether that's by her own hand, or because of editing, we'll leave that for you to decide. 

Either way, Phi Phi has been quite vocal about how displeased she has been with the final cut of All Stars 2. She's even gone as far to say that she will not be returning for the season finale/reunion/crowning extravaganza

On one hand, we feel for Phi Phi. On social media, she's found herself on the receiving end of an insane amount of bullying/badgering/trolling and even death threats. We do not condone or endorse that sort of behavior. As Alyssa Edwards famously said, "It's not personal, it's drag!"

On the other hand, we can't help but observe that as desperate as Phi Phi was for a "ru-demption" tale this season, she appeared to step on her own foot/get in her own way, time and time again. 

Coincidentally, Phi Phi's All Stars story line drew to it's conclusion last night, after (**SPOILER**) both Alyssa Edwards and Tatianna exacted their "ru-venge" to send Miss O'Hara packing. Btw, after a sickening lipsync to Rihanna's "Shut Up And Drive," both queens have rejoined the competition. 

All that aside, a "ru-demption" might not even be necessary, as it appears that Phi Phi may be ready to leave drag behind. Jaremi Carey, the man behind the queen, has begun a rebranding effort that spans across various social media platforms including Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook, where apart from his 365 Days of Drag series, his "boy self" seems to be slowly pushing Phi Phi out of the way. 

In addition to the rebrand, Jaremi revealed that he's releasing new music as his guy self, and to kick things off, he's debuted sexy new single/music video, "Play."

We're happy to see Jaremi pursue other creative aspirations, and we'll be sad if his drag persona is laid to rest. Whether you love or hate him (or his drag persona), it's hard to dispute how talented he is. 

As for RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars, we're still excited to see how the rest of this season unfolds. And trust and believe we will be glued to our tvs for the finale/reunion on October 13, both to see who snatches the crown, and whether or not Phi Phi makes an appearance. 

Update: YouTuber Hurricane PhiPhi has shared a Periscope video in which Jaremi spils LOTS of T and replies to a number of fan questions.

He was quite evil, in regards to how he made people doubt themselves and put down other contestants performances. Especially with roxxxy's snatch game. He can blame editing all he likes, but the things that happened, couldn't be edited, as you did say them and you did do them. Phi Phi needs to learn and to take the brunt, and stop blaming people for his actions. All shade all T.

Phi Phi is so negative and toxic and manipulative (you saw how she would implant self doubt into the other girls heads on the season). I really was hoping she had changed, but she's still the same ol queen!

She should go ahead and just quit drag altogether because drag has certainly quit her.  Tired-ass show girl.  lol

Wow.  Bitter much?  Poster child for "sore loser". 

Saying RuPaul is a dramatic queen that lives for all the shade and drama?  Really?  The world would not have heard of your pathetic self if it weren't for him giving you a chance. Twice!  So you're biting the hand that feeds you AND burning your bridges.  You, Phi Phi, are a hypocrite and a bully that really is so insecure it's comical. You can blame editing all you want for portraying you as a villain and then you go online or Periscope - with no editing! - and show how nasty you really are.  But, you're young. A child. A baby. You are not ready for the world of competition. I wish you luck in whatever endeavor you pursue. Just know that the world of drag - and the responsibilities and friendships that come along with it - is not that endeavor.

Thrice! They wanted her for All Stars 1, but she had an unresolved DUI and warrant out for her arrest

I agree with everything you said, except PhiPhi is not young, he's 30 and still throwing tantrums.  He's the Ryan Lochte of drag.
