Looking to Book Monique Heart?
“Richardson’s original drag name was Monique Kutabetch Heart and later changed to Monique Heart. He created “”Monique Heart”” in 2011. Heart began his career as a drag queen at Hamburger Mary’s, emceeing bingo and hosting Sunday drag brunch.
Heart first auditioned for the eighth season of RuPaul’s Drag Race but was unsuccessful. Two years later, Heart would audition for the tenth season of RuPaul’s Drag Race and this time succeeded in qualifying to be a contestant. Before being accepted on the season, Heart was ready to quit drag, but decided to continue. Heart placed eighth overall, after losing a lip sync to “”Cut to the Feeling”” by Carly Rae Jepsen against The Vixen. Heart was confirmed to be one of the contestants competing in the fourth season of RuPaul’s Drag Race: All Stars on November 9, 2018. After not winning any challenges in her original season, Heart won three main challenges during All Stars, eventually reaching Top 4. She was a runner-up alongside Naomi Smalls, finishing in joint 3rd/4th place to Monét X Change and Trinity the Tuck. Her catchphrases on the show were quoted by Rihanna, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Lizzo.
Heart was announced as part of the cast for the first ever season of RuPaul’s Celebrity Drag Race, a Drag Race spin-off where Drag Race alumni transform celebrities into Drag Queens.
On March 5 and 6, Heart performed alongside fellow drag race alumni Bebe Zahara Benet, Bob The Drag Queen, The Vixen, Peppermint, and Shea Couleé in the Nubia Tour, a live drag show featuring and produced by black drag queens.
In August, Monique will start in her very own World of Wonder Presents web series called Manic Moments with Monique Heart.”
