So Mr Donald Trump is to sue Miss Pennsylvania over her claims that the Miss USA PAGEANT WAS RIGGED!!!
- Sheena Monnin claimed a contestant had seen a list of the top five women – before the show had even begun.
- Organizers said that Monnin cited new rules allowing transgender contestants to take part as her reason for resigning.
- Miss Universe Organization now suing Monnin for her claims.
- Trump: ‘She never had a chance of winning’
Co owner of the Miss Universe Organization, Donald Trump has revealed he will be suing Miss Pennsylvania after she claimed the ‘ever so squeaky clean’ organization was rigged.
She announced her resignation on Facebook. She said a fellow contestant saw the top 5 girls on a list even before the show began.
On the TODAY SHOW, Trump said: “What we’ve authorized today is we’re going to bring a lawsuit.”
“When she’s using the word ‘fraud’. That is pretty strong, so we’re going to be suing her on that basis.”
He also said:
“I did see her for about a second. I never felt that she had a chance, and all this is buyer’s remorse”
He also said that her claims were “disgraceful” and there is no evidence that the LIST even exists!
The person that supposedly showed the list to totally denies that that ever happened! He said “This is a girl who went there, lost, she wasn’t’ in the top 15, and she’s angry at the pageant system.”
Monnin added that the Miss Universe Organization, which overseas the pageant, is “fraudulent, lacking in morals, inconsistent, and in many ways trashy.”
She went on saying that after the top 5 part of the pageant took happened, she knew it was rigged and that she decided to distance herself from the organization.
‘THE ORGANISATION LACKS MORALS': MISS PENNSYLVANIA’S CLAIMS
On her Facebook page, Miss Monnin wrote:
‘I have decided to resign my position as Miss Pennsylvania USA 2012. Effective immediately I have voluntarily, completely, and utterly removed myself from the Miss Universe Organization.
‘In good conscience I can no longer be affiliated in any way with an organization I consider to be fraudulent, lacking in morals, inconsistent, and in many ways trashy. I do not support this system in any way. In my heart I believe in honesty, fair play, a fair opportunity, and high moral integrity, none of which in my opinion are part of this pageant system any longer.
‘Thank you all for your support and understanding as I walk a road I never dreamed I’d need to walk, as I take a stand I never dreamed I’d need to take.
‘After 10 years of competing in a pageant system I once believed in, I now completely and irrevocably separate myself in every way and on every level from the Miss Universe Organization. I remove my support completely and have turned in the title of Miss Pennsylvania USA 2012.’
She later qualified her remarks by adding:
‘Many people have sent me messages requesting and at times demanding that I come forward if I know information that has led to my abrupt and surprising resignation.
‘I agree that it is my moral obligation to state what I witnessed and what I know to be true. I will relay to you the reasoning behind my resignation.
‘I witnessed another contestant who said she saw the list of the Top 5 BEFORE THE SHOW EVER STARTED proceed to call out in order who the Top 5 were before they were announced on stage.
‘Apparently the morning of June 3rd she saw a folder lying open to a page that said ‘FINAL SHOW Telecast, June 3, 2012′ and she saw the places for Top 5 already filled in. Thinking she was just seeing a rehearsal fake top 5 from a previous day she walked away, then realized that it had without a doubt been labeled as the Final Show Telecast, June 3rd.
‘After the Top 16 were called and we were standing backstage she hesitantly said to me and another contestant that she knew who the Top 5 were. I said ‘who do you think they will be?’ She said that she didn’t ‘think’ she ‘knew’ because she saw the list that morning. She relayed whose names were on the list. Then we agreed to wait and see if that was indeed the Top 5 called that night.
‘After it was indeed the Top 5 I knew the show must be rigged; I decided at that moment to distance myself from an organization who did not allow fair play and whose morals did not match my own.
‘That is all I know about this. If this contestant would like to step forward as an eye witness and as being the one who saw the sheet with the Top 5 already selected before the judges ever saw the Top 16, then perhaps action can be taken. As for me, I believe her words and I will not encourage anyone to compete in a system that in my opinion and from what I witnessed is dishonest.’
Miss Monnin’s email, according to Miss Universe Organization
‘I am officially and irrevocably resigning the title of Miss Pennsylvania USA 2012. I refuse to be part of a pageant system that has so far and so completely removed itself from its foundational principles as to allow and support natural-born males to compete in it.
‘This goes against ever moral fiber of my being. I believe in integrity, high moral character, and fair play, none of which are part of this system any longer.
‘I hereby return the title of Miss Pennsylvania USA 2012.’
The Miss Universe Organization refuted the claims, swing that in a resignation emaill, Monnin said she was quitting as she was against new rules allowing transgender contestants to take part.
So basically its a case of she said, he said, she said, he said. She seems to have started this whole thing off with saying the competition was rigged and now is changing it all to disagreeing with the ‘transgender’ contestant taking part in it all.
Anyway, all that I know is that this whole thing took the spotlight away from the winner Olivia Culpo from Rhode Island! Congratulations to you Olivia! I hope that this all blows over on your behalf and that you can carry on wearing your crown with grace and poise.
What do you think of it all???
