Most recently, in Season 11, Vanessa Vanjie Mateo and Brooke Lynn Hytes kindled a romance on screen that carried on after they wrapped, though they had ended things by the time the reunion aired. Unfortunately, too much time apart made things too difficult. “We dated for about four months after the show, and we tried to make it work, but our schedules were just very different,” Brooke told Ru. “[Vanjie] was traveling all the time, I wasn’t traveling at all, so we never really saw each other, and it was scary for me.”
And while they didn’t meet on the show, Sharon Needles and Alaska, who appeared in Season 4 and Season 5, respectively, met before they appeared on the show and dated for four years, ending their romance in 2013. And Manila Luzon of Season 3 dated Season 2’s Sahara Davenport until her death in 2012 due to heart failure.
While it seems romance will have to wait for Gigi and Crystal, it’s clear they have a bond for life, no matter what. As Crystal put it to ET, “I’m friends with all the girls, but for some reason, [Gigi] and I were able to connect really well. We’re fans of, like, what each other do and we both teach each other stuff… It’s so weird.”
