'RPDR' Star Latrice Royale's Husband Christopher Is Goals
It's hard to say yet whether the third time will be a charm for Latrice Royale on RuPaul's Drag Race All-Stars. But the Season 3 Miss Congeniality is already fully winning in her personal life.
The "Weight" singer, known as Timothy Wilcots by day, has an amazing partner cheering him on from afar this season, and a sneak peek at tonight's episode reveals we may learn a little about their sweet romance.
But you don't even have to wait 'til tonight, because we've got all the tea on Latrice Royale's boyfriend — nay, husband now — including the vital role he plays in her success and their sweet proposal story.
So, who is this dreamboat?
Latrice, aka Timothy, and Christopher Hamblin met at a meet and greet nearly six ago and moved in together nine months later. Latrice proposed at a show at R Place, a gay club in Seattle, during 2016 Seattle Pride.
"A b---h went to Jared," she said before dropping to her knees and asking Christopher to marry her.
In addition to sharing a rich home life together, this power couple also works side by side. Christopher is executive personal assistant to Latrice, running the show behind the scenes for her appearances. He has also managed at least two other queens you might recall from RPDR seasons past: Kennedy Davenport and Cynthia Lee Fontaine.
And now Latrice and Chris are married!
Yep, sorry, but Ms. Royale is off the market. The couple tied the knot earlier this year in Atlanta, GA. The ceremony was attended by tons of drag royalty, including superstars like Bianca Del Rio, Willam, Shangela, Kennedy Davenport, and Manila Luzon, AKA the other half of Latrila.
The romance is far from over for these two, given what Latrice had to say this week. In a sneak peek for tonight's episode, Latrice mentions finding a note from her boo in her luggage when they arrived. "He just wanted to let me know that, at all costs, that I had somebody at home waiting for me," she said to the other queens in the workroom.
"It's the best feeling in the world to have somebody that's in your corner, no matter what, win lose, draw — unconditional love." OK but no shade, it's really not fair of her to make everybody cry off their freshly beaten faces like that.
But we get it. Love didn't come easy for Timothy and Christopher, who both grew up feeling like the life they have together now would never be possible. "Coming from a religious background I was so conflicted all the time because they're constantly telling me that all the things I was feeling inside me were my ticket to hell," Latrice said. "Back then I never thought love, monogamy, family, would be a possibility for me."
Of course, now marriage is possible for all couples in all 50 states now. And with the passage of Amendment 4 in Florida, Latrice, who resides in Hollywood, FL, will also be able to become a registered voter, something the former ex-felon also probably never thought would be possible.
But why was Latrice in jail?
Latrice opened up about how difficult it was being a gay man in jail back in Season 3, but didn't go into a lot of detail about how he ended up there. However, in an episode of "What's the Tee," RuPaul and Michelle Visage's podcast, she went into more detail.
She was driving on a suspended license with expired tags, but the situation was exacerbated because "when I was arrested, I had possession of a Klonopin" but no prescription for the anti-anxiety medication.
According to mugshots.com, Timothy K Wilcotts was convicted of possession of a controlled substance with a second charge for possession of MDMA (AKA molly). She was given probation but violated it on a technical by failing to report, and was sentenced to 18 months, of which she served 12. Six of those months were behind bars and the rest on work release.
She counts the experience as a blessing because it taught her a lot, especially about who she can trust to stay by her side no matter what.
