WTF Willam WTF

But what did she do-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o!

The official statement on Logo was as completely unhelpful and unsatisfying as the tease then go to commercial every two minutes atrocity of the Untucked aftershow, and no, Phi Phi, making you all eat up with jealousy is not breaking any rules, there must be more afoot here, but this thin gruel is all we are served:
“During the filming of the fourth season of RuPaul’s Drag Race, it was brought to the producers attention that Willam had not complied with the rules as set forth in his competition contract. As a result, and in fairness to the other contestants, Willam was forced to leave the show. This issue will be addressed in the upcoming reunion special.”

I'm assuming unauthorized outside communication, or possibly sleeping with somebody tangentially involved in judging or producing are likeliest, but who the hell can say? Serious behind the music scenes with hypos and bloody wigs are always an option. For goddess sake Michael K or somebody help the children out, how can I be expected to teach critical theory to my undergraduates with all this on my mind?

I'll bet they put Willam back on the All Stars show next time anyway -- scandalous, burp. Now, at least, we know why Willam released this video earlier today in a bid to get some advance purchase on the gossip churn  -- like Sarah Palin, queen knows to harvest every scrap of attention that comes her way, even when it is terrible for our wonderful country.
