About

This bodacious queen is all about beauty, hair and body-ody-ody. From the legendary House of Colby, Kerri is a bold diva who tells it like it is while always looking flawless. She came to slay the game in true Colby style![11]

Drag Name Origin

"Colby comes from the legendary Haus of Colby. Kerri, I don't even know when I thought of it, I took a lot of inspiration from Keeping Up with the... specific K name. And with that being the case, I was like, well, if I want to be a part of that family, I need to have a K name. So Kerri came really quickly.[12]
