Monét tells EW there might be a second, secret alliance brewing on RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars 7.

Monét X Change — beloved sponge queen — is soaking up all of the chaotic vibes after being blocked from winning another Legendary Legend Star for the first time on RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars 7.

Though she stirred the pot by forming an alliance with fellow All Stars 4 winner Trinity The Tuck back on episode 1 of the first all-winners competition in Drag Race her-story, Monét says in an exclusive EW's BINGE podcast interview (below) that she suspects an alternate, secret alliance is brewing among her sisters outside the AS4 coalition — specifically, as she says, including Drag Race UK's The Vivienne, who handed Monét the Platinum Plunger on Friday's episode.

"Jaida did hand it to her, so, maybe they have some situation working that I'm not privy to, and I'm very curious to see what ends up happening," Monét says of the moment Jaida Essence Hall handed The Vivienne a xylophone prop from off-stage to enhance her lip-sync performance at the end of the episode, which helped her win the dance-off and ultimately gave her the ability to block Monét. "We haven't seen it yet, I don't know where we're at or what you've seen or what makes the cut, but I definitely thought there was a smoker's alliance going on, and this was furthering my point."

When asked if she knew that Jaida was going to spruce up The Vivienne's performance with the prop hand-off, Monét maintains that she had no idea the exchange would happen.

"I think that it's part of the alliance. Maybe it did happen, but I did not see any talks of them giving someone a xylophone, about who's going to do the American Bandstand," Monét explains. "So, I think there's some alliance that we're going to find out about, and people will see that I was not the only one playing the game."

While she still has her eyes on Jaida, Monét counts The Vivienne out of her plan for an alliance, joking that she "will absolutely come for that bitch" after the British queen's latest move.

"Now that I have been blocked, I don't feel the weight of having to be so crazy with the alliance. I'm still going to be working, but not as intensely as I was," finishes Monét. "Maybe a little twist might come that might force me to play hard again, but who knows?"
