The World of Wonder crew and RuPaul's Drag Race family are mourning the loss of the Emmy-winning show's co-executive producer, Jacqueline Wilson.
Wilson, who'd been with the show since 2012, died of undisclosed causes this week, and RuPaul made the announcement today, September 11, writing:
Our beloved colleague Jacqueline Wilson has passed away. I could never express in words her invaluable contribution to the success of #DragRace, and to all the lives of those who were fortunate enough to have worked alongside her. Love always, my friend.
Bianca Del Rio posted an image of herself with Wilson, writing:
My dear, Jacqueline ❤️
Thank you for the endless laughs.
Thank you for your generosity.
Thank you for being my friend.
Thank you for believing in me.
You will be so missed.
Rest well, my lady. 💔
