Drag Name Origin
Previously known as "Sir Honey Davenport," Honey's name originated when she attended one of RuPaul's autobiography signing events and RuPaul wrote to her as, "honey." Her surname, Davenport, got put on the end when she was adopted into the Davenport family by her drag mother, "The Lady Deja Davenport."

Honey, New York City's crown jewel, is one of three Season 11 contestants hailing from the "House of Davenport." With Sahara Davenport, a former "RuPaul's Drag Race" alumni as her mentor along with acting in various Off-Broadway plays, being a member of an electro band and having 18 pageant crowns under her belt, Honey was expected to make it far in the show. Unfortunately, she only remained safe until Episode 3, "Diva Workship", when her team fell flat at the talk show challenge, and all 6 ended up having to lip-sync for their life. As the worst of all 6, Honey Davenport was eliminated at the end of the song.
"This honey is raw and unfiltered."
- "I might wear Givenchy, but labels don't fit me."
- "I'm really confused as to why Hot Wheels needs to make an appearance on RuPaul's Drag Race. (referring to Yvie Oddly's entrance look)
- "So, not only is Silky not happy with what she got, which is what she chose, but she's making her way around the Werkroom doing all of her same boom kat kat that she's been doing since she walked into the door. Silky should probably head back over to her Peppermint box and figure out how she gon' sweeten up this runway."
