Shangela Laquifa Wadley‘s star continues to rise. Our girl will play a “ruthless” drag queen in The CW’s Katy Keene, a spinoff of Riverdale.
Named Devereaux on the show she goes from,
“from internet personality to A-list drag queen. Her greatest talent is flaunting this wave of access.. her ruthless competitiveness is what keeps her on top.”
Uh, sounds like some queens we know…
Devereaux is the pageant rival of Ginger Lopez/Jorge played by Johnny Beauchamp.
As James St. James reported here, Shangie is also starring in We’re Here, a new HBO series alongside Bob the Drag Queen and Eureka O’Hara for a six-part show.
Shangela posted her excitement about the HBO show on Instagram,
“Never give up on your dreams y’all. And don’t be afraid to WERQ HARD for what u want! HALLELOO!
