‘Here she is everyone,’ Raja wrote in the caption. ‘I am so proud to announce my cameo appearance on #theSimpsons!

‘I can’t describe how honored I am to have been asked to do this episode airing November 18, with special guest @rupaulofficial.

‘The best part is… I play myself in a scene with Homer. I’ll never forget crying my eyes out, as rain came pouring down on the sidewalk outside the recording studio.

‘Tears of joy.

‘The Simpsons was a huge part of my childhood, being asked to be on an episode was surreal and mind blowing, to say the least,’ Raja wrote.

Raja marries her partner

Raja married her one-year long boyfriend Ryan Turner in a small ceremony at the end of last year.

‘We did the City Hall thing,’ Raja told Hornet. ‘It all happened very rapidly.

‘We decided a long time ago that we were gonna do it – we pretty much knew from the get go that we were gonna marry each other.

We just decided one day, “Let’s just fucking do it.” So we found out where to go, filled out all the right paperwork, and then decided to do it immediately.’

‘It seems rushed, but it was something that had to be done. There was just no way around it. We were like “Let’s just get married.”’
