Kayla Blanton

Kayla is an entertainment writer for Bustle where she's the go-to gal for all things reality TV. Most notably, she has covered two seasons of RuPaul's Drag Race, including weekly exit interviews with the queens featured on the show. She’s also a freelance writer for Prevention.

Kayla’s bylines have also appeared on INSIDER, Prevention.com, and Menshealth.com, and she covers myriad topics ranging from food and nutrition to beauty and style. She earned a bachelor's degree in journalism from Ohio University with specializations in women, gender and sexuality studies and public health.

Other than indulging in a chaos-fueled competition show, her favorite pastimes include pretending to be a Chopped contestant while cooking and sheet masking whenever there's a spare 20 minutes. She's also a part-time barista — the perfect enabler of her coffee addiction.
