Wasn't he Manilla Luzon's boyfriend? Was it drugs?

A full day, and just 4 posts?

And do we have to wait for a Ru Paul Wake Special to find out cause-of-death?

r3, Primetime was in place. Primetime prevents non-subscribers from posting their comments.

What happened?

by Anonymousreply 510/02/2012

Interesting that it's now been about 18 hours without any further word on what happened. In this internet age of speedy information, it is pretty rare.

by Anonymousreply 610/02/2012

Obviously people are being very tight-lipped about it.

by Anonymousreply 710/02/2012

Maybe someone has to make a ruling on the type of death (i.e. natural, accidental, murder, suicide). It could take some time for that, but even then .... usually in most 'celebrity' cases, something comes out in a statement about a *suspected* cause of death.

R3, for a while people were simply posting new threads every time they wanted to say something about this incomparable tragedy, rather than adding posts to existing threads.

Sahara would have like it that way. She had a dry wit.

Still no real news.

Kids, when someone dies and everyone close to her is opaque about the cause, there's only one reason.

by Anonymousreply 1110/02/2012

That's what I'm thinking too, R11 .... but even then, it usually gets out. Look at Sage Stallone ...and then when it was finally revealed it was 'natural' and related to his heart. But initially speculation was all over the place ...suicide, drug overdose, etc.

This one ....nada.

So sad

It's always a tragedy when the world loses someone who can put on outfits and lip sync.

by Anonymousreply 1410/02/2012

While sad, the unintended consequence was that the NYT outed her about lying about her age.

by Anonymousreply 1510/02/2012

My theory is she was the other patient (the one in critical condition) in the stories about the meningitis outbreak in NYC in HIV positive men. The timing and age fits, and if I'm right, it would out her as being HIV positive, and possibly cause panic in the NYC gay community, as it would be the second death in 2 weeks from meningitis. Two possible reasons they are not talking about the cause. But you would have to think it would have leaked by now as more than just speculation.

"What happened?"

She, and her plumb, were tuckered out.

Someone on Huffington said it was a klonopin OD.

by Anonymousreply 1910/03/2012

shit, can you OD on Klonapin without drinking a lot of booze with it?

Still no news????

Heart failure, according to Us magazine.

Her heart failed [after she ODed].

she mainlined liquid eyeliner and committed crimes.

TV Guide mistakenly used a picture of Sheree for an article about Sahara`s death. Seriously.

by Anonymousreply 2510/03/2012

Half of my Facebook friends are acting as if The Dalai Lama has died. Who cares about some two-bit drag queen. I mean, did she change the world or help others, or just exhaust us with her typical drag queen narcissism?

From my experience, you can't OD on Klonopin even with drinking a lot of booze. You just forget where you've been.

R26 .... I am willing to bet that the same mourning won't happen when you die. Hopefully soon.

She was a pioneer for all people who pretended to have a vagina on basic cable.

[quote]Checks can be mailed ????

In theory, yes, but no one under the age of 60 does anymore.

He was a classically trained dancer and had a beautifully thin body. I wonder if some years of eating issues didn't do some harm. A friend of mine was a gymnast and her body is destroyed and she's only 30. Some of it was wear and tear from training but her heart damage came from starving, purging and laxative abuse.

R25. That is so fucking funny!

Shemale by Sheree indeed!

Oooooooooooh, baby! Thank you Jesus for killing my baby! CHECKS!

That is one classy family.

R32 I have no problems

Your heart doesn't fail at 27 unless: You had a congenital defect (and he was a dancer, so this is unlikely); You have an overwhelming infection which affects your heart;You have damadged your heart from starvation; You have taken something that caused your heart to fail.

But so long as he was "beautifully thin" who cares, right?

You sound really strange.

Has CNN released a cause of death?

When I said "lipsynch for your life," I didn't mean it literally.

R40: I told you Ru was hard core.

41 posts and that's it?

Does this mean RuPaul is over?

and it wasn't cardiac arrest.

It's been a few months. What happened?
