"This is a person I’ve built a relationship with and this could ruin it."

Season 10 of RuPaul's Drag Race decided to cut Karbs. During last night's episode, which saw the queens in the lip-syncing extravaganza, PharmaRusical, Kalorie Karbdashian Williams became the second contestant of the season to get the chop.

But Williams' bubbly personality and curvy, body-positive looks will guarantee she isn't soon forgotten within the hallowed halls of Drag Race.

OUT: How did you feel about your overall experience on the show?

Kalorie Karbdashian Williams: I am honestly just so blessed -- I'm on cloud nine. It's just a phenomenal experience that I got to be there. There are so many queens that wish they could have this opportunity. This year was actually my first time auditioning for the show, it was pretty epic.

You talked before about wanting to get on the show to give yourself a stamp of approval - do you feel you got that?

For myself, yes. That was definitely one of those reassuring moments to myself. Like, 'I got on, this is it.' It was proving to myself that I was good enough and not listening to the negative comments from everybody. It was like, 'I believe in myself now.'

What was it like lip-syncing against Eureka? She seemed to be the other queen you became closest to during the show.

It was so hard. Being in the bottom two is already an emotional time because you're like, 'Well damn it, my whole dream is about to be taken from me.' And not just that, but then add to it the fact that we're friends and this is a person I've built a relationship with and this could ruin it.

Has everything been good between you and Eureka since?

Oh absolutely, Eureka and I talk all the time. We were just in New York last week hanging out -- we're still super close.

Who were you planning to do for Snatch Game?

I wanted to do a total plus-sized Kim Kardashian that was obsessed with food. I had little snacks I wanted to hide and eat and I wanted to figure out how to sneak in a pizza box.

What would you change if you got the call back for All Stars?

I would change the preparation. I did a lot by myself when I was preparing for this competition and I was really afraid to network out and have other people make things for me. I think if I got on to All Stars I would collaborate more.

What's something about you that you hope fans see more of now that you're on the road and traveling since the show?

I'm really hoping that people will get to see my creativity. We all know that that's one thing you have to have to get onto the show, so I feel like in my short-lived time I didn't get to showcase my full creative capabilities.
