Despite reports that Bobby Berk is leaving Netflix’s Queer Eye due to conflicts with his costars, the Fab Five looked like a solid cast while celebrating their latest Emmy Award win.

No drama here after all… apparently!

Bobby Berk announced on November 2023 that he’s leaving Netflix’s Queer Eye after the eighth season of the series, which still hasn’t premiered on the streaming service. The announcement came as a shock to most fans, particularly because the other four members of the Fab Five are all working on solo projects but haven’t departed the Netflix series.

Following the announcement of his Queer Eye exit, Tan France has reportedly unfollowed Berk on Instagram, which has reportedly been reciprocated. “The tipping point, some speculate, was a recent Instagram post by Berk in which he tagged the whole cast, except for France – which was quickly pointed out in the comments,” PRIDE reports.

On Sunday, Jan. 7, Queer Eye won the Emmy Award for Outstanding Structured Reality Program, and the entire Fab Five posed for various pictures as if no drama is going on (except for Berk once again not tagging France in a group picture that included all five of them).

“Words can’t express what this means,” Berk wrote in the Instagram post. “My 5 Fab siblings and I finally won an Emmy. Humbled with gratitude and love. Thank you to the Academy and to all our fans who have embraced us like family. This is for all of you. I love YOU.”

Berk’s caption regarding the “Fab 5 siblings and I finally won an Emmy” is due to the fact that the five of them served as producers on Queer Eye for this season – meaning that they each won a trophy for the series. Even though the series had sixth consecutive wins in the Emmy Award for Outstanding Structured Reality Program category, this was the first season where the Fab 5 cast members served as producers and won awards for making the show.

When it comes to France’s Instagram post celebrating this Emmy victory, he did tag Berk in a group picture and wrote, “We didn’t just dream it!” In another IG post, France shared a series of selfies with his Queer Eye costars, except there wasn’t a selfie with Berk.

As far as Queer Eye fans are concerned, it’s still a mystery as to what the heck is going on here. Nonetheless, we couldn’t be happier for an LGBTQ+ series like Queer Eye to be snatching yet another trophy!

The first seven seasons of Queer Eye are now streaming on Netflix.
