But there is one thing that still eludes her: love. A career in drag makes relationships hard - the fame, the travel, the distance - but Kameron refuses to give up on true happiness. A new boyfriend could be the one, but he lives in New York City, and Kameron has signed this amazing residency in Las Vegas for months. Will she have to, once again, choose between love and her career?"

All Stars 5
"Derrick is the queen of Las Vegas, having lived and performed on the strip for the past 16 years - and she does so with the support of not one but two boyfriends. Three's not a crowd, it's a throuple, and Nick (Derrick's partner of 13 years) and Mack (her partner of eight years) are intertwined with her life, both personally and professionally. This Britney Spears impersonator must now share the spotlight with her former rival, Naomi Smalls. Their relationship has been "Toxic" since Season 8 of RuPaul's Drag Race, and if they can't work out their differences quickly, the musical could get "Crazy.""
