Hornet Exclusive: On Tonight’s Episode of ‘Big Freedia Bounces Back,’ Things Gets Real With Her Fiancé
Like us, you know and love New Orleans superstar Big Freedia for many reasons. For starters, she’s the world’s leading expert on twerking as the “Queen of Bounce.” Possibly her biggest recognition to date came from her spoken-word contribution to the Beyoncé hit “Formation.” Freedia also once broke the Guinness World Record for group-twerking — let’s not forget about that. And she’s the star of the GLAAD Award-winning series Big Freedia Bounces Back, which also happens to be the cable network’s top-rated reality series.
In its sixth season, which premiered on Sept. 12, Big Freedia Bounces Back sees a new-and-improved Freedia. She’s newly sober after battling legal troubles and is determined to “bounce back” and take her career to a new level. That includes landing a major-label deal and giving back to her beloved local community of New Orleans. But will her boyfriend and team get in formation and up their game or will they get left behind?
Tonight’s episode sees Freedia have a heart-to-heart with her fiancé, Devon. During a picnic on the water in the New Orleans neighborhood of Bayou St. John — set up by Devon with shrimp po’ boys and champagne — Freedia relays what she was told by a voodoo psychic, namely that her man needs to get a hobby.
In the preview clip Hornet received for tonight’s episode, we see Freedia get real with Devon.
“I asked him [voodoo psychic Divine Prince] about my love life, and your name popped up,” she tells Devon. “He said that my partner needs to find something to do with himself. Something that’s gonna make him happy, like a hobby or a job or something on that level.”
