Original, October 28, 2020, 7:55 p.m. ET:

Masked Singer fans have been blabbing their top theories about the entire season 4 cast online — and Lips is no exception.

The pouty princess has kept her lips mostly sealed, so there’s not much we know about her just yet, but that hasn’t stopped internet sleuths from tossing out their best guesses. This season 4 character sports a gaping black mouth, a set of luscious lips Snow White would be jealous of, and a sparkly pair of black pants. As Group C clamors for a top spot in the competition, here’s what we know about the singer on everyone’s lips.

Who is Lips on The Masked Singer?

First, here are the clues we’ve rounded up so far:

  • For Lips’s first official clue, she tells the audience, “If you want a hint about me, I own who I am. I know that my voice can go high, but my dishes go deep.”

  • Lips hopes she doesn't "slip up" while performing.

  • In the intro package, Lips adds that “trying to infiltrate The Masked Singer stage is like trying to break into a Las Vegas money vault,” accompanying imagery of surveillance footage and suited security agents in sunglasses.

  • Lips also says she wants to “lip sync her teeth into the competition.”

Based on that limited information, fans think Lips could be:

Wendy Williams is well known for The Wendy Williams Show and hosting a talk show is a perfect fit for a character like Lips. Fans have noted that Wendy's love of celebrity gossip and hot topics could be what Lips means when she refers to her “dishes” going “deep.” Another fan on Instagram mentioned that Lips and Wendy have similar voices. On the clip below, a viewer wrote, “Rewatch the short clip of Lips singing and you’ll [hear] her say 'okay.' Totally [Williams’s] voice!”

Actress and The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast member Lisa Rinna is known in part for her bold pucker, so Lips could very well be her. She’s also the owner of a newly launched cosmetics brand, Rinna Beauty, which sells, of course, lipstick. She told Us Weekly in September,“I’ve always wanted to do a lip line because the lips, it’s always been about the lips. I mean, since I was 24, right?” What's more the RHOBH star is also known for telling other housewives to “own it,” and Lips’s clue about “owning who I am” could be a nod to that catchphrase.

This last one might seem a little out there ... until you hear the theory fans have come up with. Multiple fans noted that the “dishes go deep” clue made them think of pizza, while the “Las Vegas money vault” clue reminds them of the popular Ocean’s movies — of course, Julia Roberts starred in both Mystic Pizza and the Ocean’s films. Could the world-renowned star be gracing The Masked Singer stage? Probably not, but hey, anything is possible.

Until we learn more of Lips’s vocal talents, we’ll have to live on these clues alone. Let’s hope she sticks around long enough to make an impression before she kisses the competition goodbye.
