Grande Dame..Alyssa Edwards and the De-throning!
Alyssa Edwards who hails from Mesquite, TX , is known as the Vanessa Williams of drag, after a scandal forced her to relinquish a major pageant title. But don't get it twisted - this trained dancer is here to show America she's still got what it takes to win. She is known on the drag circuit as a fierce competitor, extremely flawless, and puts on a great show. Not to mention tough as nails. And lets not even discuss the fabulous wardrobe. Now I have received several emails about why she was stripped on her huge crown.....so I ask a drag friend on the drag vine who asked, a queen who asked her source and this is the tea I got .... Back in 2010 the epic Alyssa Edwards was dethroned as the winner of Miss Gay America after missing multiple club and other public appearances as the winner without notice at all to club promoters or the Gay Miss America organizers. Therefore by default, and the by-laws, they gift the first runner-up ,who just so happened to be Coco Montrese, her crown. The real gag is Alyssa Edwards had been dethroned once before for similar reasons from another competition before this happened. Alyssa and Coco were close friends before the 2010 Miss America travesty. It is rumored Coco played a role in snitching to Gay Miss America where Alyssa actually was while she was missing appearances. Again, you ain’t hear this from me gurls! But that’s what I heard!!!!! No matter, Alyssa still seems fierce and and has moved on. Keep that chin up girl....ahhhhh, yeah, there isn't really a chin is there?
