REALITY CHECK. Dragqueen Shangela provides a scoop and reality stars prey on the crown of Miss Belgium | REALITY CHECK

TV‘Temptation’, ‘Ex On The Beach’ or ‘Love Island’: these are pleasures that we don’t feel guilty about at all. And because we suspect you of the same, we will keep you informed every Friday about the ins and outs of the reality world. New loves, quarrels or other antics of (former) TV characters: you will find out all here.

Ingeborg, is that you?

The Dutch Kelly became known for her participation in the first season of ‘Love Island’. But those who want to catch a glimpse of her these days should head to Ibiza. The reality star moved to the Spanish island a while back, and has built a life there in the meantime. As the local Ingeborg, it turns out. For a while now, Kelly – who describes herself on Instagram as a holistic psychologist for the sake of convenience – has been teaching ‘Mindset Retreat Ceremonies’. On request you can undergo such a ceremony in Ibiza, the Netherlands and Belgium. According to Kelly, it’s all about a ‘healing’ experience. Your heart, feelings and intuition are central to this.

“I have learned so much from inspiring people over the past year and a half,” it sounds. “Now I am ready to share these valuable lessons and experiences with others. I want to guide people to reach their full potential and become the best possible version of themselves. That way they can achieve things they never thought possible before.”

For those wondering: a session with Kelly lasts about two hours, and costs fifty euros. For that money you can probably also go to a real psychologist, just saying.

A reality star as the most beautiful in the country?

It just might. After all, both ‘Temptation Island’ temptress Kunza and ‘De Bachelor’ candidate Esmée advanced to the next round of Miss Belgium. The former received a so-called ‘crown card’ for this. This means that the organization believes in Kunza, and does not want to say goodbye to her yet. Whereupon the girlfriend of ‘Big Brother’ finalist Nick exhausts herself in words of thanks. You could for less, right?

She was one of the most popular drag queens ever seen on ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’, and afterwards Shangela – nom de plume by Darius Jeremy Pierce – got together with fellow artists Bob The Drag Queen and Eureka O’Hara with ‘We’re Here own reality series. As if that weren’t enough accolades, ‘Shangie’ now also has a first. She is the first drag queen to participate in the American version of ‘Dancing with the Stars’. Together with dance partner Gleb Savchenko, Shangela turns out to be a formidable competitor, and she has been dancing to the top of the scoreboard for several weeks. “I hope we can show that it’s about the heart and soul of a person,” said the entertainer. “It doesn’t matter if it’s two men dancing or a man and a drag performer. It’s about fun, and the opportunity to understand each other better.”
