She had said that she was pained by her brother’s early demise. This had made her more vulnerable to the drama which usually plays between the people in a reality TV show. She said on Ru Paul this week:
“It was such a brutal season for me, and it was a time where I was floundering.”
“Everybody always says, ‘Oh, you look like you’ve got your life together,’ but I started that show this season like, two or three months after my brother passed. I just wasn’t in the right space.”
She explained further:
“I actually did say, and we talked about it with Andy [Cohen] on Watch What Happens Live — he said: ‘I wish I’d given you the year off. And I just wasn’t as prepared. I found that I couldn’t deal with something that I could normally deal with. So then it just went on and it was accumulative and in the end I just said, ‘I can’t do this anymore. I just can’t.’ “
