American Beauty Queen Crowned Miss Universe
In a dizzling Las Vegas pageant with a lot of glitter, sequines, and a great deal of skin, Rhodes Island college student Olivia Culpo bested other 88 international competetors to win the miss universe crown. Culpo, 20 years is an accomplished musician who describes herself as "cellist nerd". The Boston University sophmore is the first American to win the titlre since 1997, notes the Associasted Press and she tweeteed her delioght" What an honor! Thanks everyone for support tonight!! Usa finally did it". Culpo was crowned Miss USA last June, in a pageant mixed with a little controvesy. Another contestant former Miss Pennysalvania Sheena Monnin resigned, claiming the pageant was rigged and trashy. She claimed she overheard a third contestant decribing a pre-arranged list of winner before the pageant started. And she was angery over the pageant's decision tp permit trangendered women to compete as contestants. The Miss USA pageant owned by businessman Donald Trump, sued her for defamation and yesterday pageant won the case, reports the NEW York Post. Monnines penalty? five million dollars. The judge found that it was not possible for pageant winers to be known ahead of time and Monnine's statements were false and showed a reckless disregard. Her original facebook page with he allegations was taken down and it seems to be replaced with "Sheena Monnin support page".
