Trixie Mattel texts with rapper Iggy Azalea 

For one video with InTouch Weekly, Trixie Mattel and Katya sat down to share some of the content of their phones. For Trixie Mattel, that includes a picture of herself in costume with no makeup or wig on. For Katya that includes a message between her and Jiggly Caliente. 

At one point, the duo was asked who is the most famous person in their contact list. For Katya, the most famous person she talks to is Kate Beckinsale, the actor behind the Underworld movies. 

Her daughter is a big fan of the series, RuPaul’s Drag Race, and the actor actually owes Katya a favor.  Almost instantly, Trixie Mattel pointed out that she had Iggy Azalea in her contacts and was recently messaging her. 

“I was just texting her because she was reading our book and she was sending me voice messages of her with that accent like reading the book,” Trixie Mattel said. This wouldn’t be the first time that Iggy Azalea contacts one of the girls from RuPaul’s Drag Race.
