UPDATE: Lots of fans have posed another question for Willam: Why did she barf on the runway just before being disqualified? At the reunion taping, an audience member posed the question to Willam, but the answer she gave didn’t make the cut in the episode that aired last night — probably because it wasn’t as juicy as we had all hoped. Since EW was at the Reunited taping, we can tell you her answer. It’s rather basic, really: Willam explained that she knew she was getting eliminated from the show, so during her lunch break that day, she gorged herself. If you remember, she was wearing a corset-style top that day. So it was simply biology at work: She ate too much and was squeezed into something too small to hold it — so something had to go. Willam did explain, however, that she cleaned up the mess herself.
EARLIER: What did Willam do? It was the question we all asked after the controversial contestant was eliminated from RuPaul’s Drag Race — a first for the series — back in mid March. Rumors about what rules Willam broke spread like wildfire, but at the time, the queen wouldn’t reveal her transgressions, even during an interview with us here at EW.
All the details came to light, however, on tonight’s the season 4 finale-reunion of RuPaul’s Drag Race, where Willam — dressed in a skin-tight, flesh-toned dress — revealed what she did to get booted from the runway prematurely, during a one-on-one interview with the show’s host and head judge RuPaul.
Of course, Willam started out answering the question — “What did Willam do?” — by making a joke. “What didn’t I do?” she said. But then she continued with the answer that she’s peddling as the truth — that she was having sex with her husband in the hotel where the Drag Race queens were quarantined during taping. (It’s common knowledge that reality show contestants are cut off from the outside world during the competition.)
Specifically — in a bit that got cut from the episode that just aired — Willam explained: “My husband was coming to bang me out.” (EW was on the scene at the taping, which is how we have the further, more graphic quotes from Willam.)
