Before we all dismiss the scandal as a case of sour grapes, another Miss USA contestant is standing by Miss Pennsylvania Sheena Monnin’s claims. The contestant, who spoke on condition of anonymity, tells Fox News that she whitness Miss Florida Karina Brez seeing a list of the top five finalists before the top 15 were even announced.
“I saw Florida backstage and she was very, very flustered and upset,” This anonymous gal said. “I thought it might be because she didn’t make the top 15 cut, but at that point she was able to reveal to me at least four of the five names who went on to be the top girls. She couldn’t remember the fifth because she was so upset. Several of the girls then started hearing through the grapevine about a list; a lot of people were upset.”
She then continues to say that many of the participants are upset with how Miss Pennsylvania has been “aggressively attacked by an organization that claims to empower women.” Some other witnesses are afraid to come forward.
Sheena has since resigned her Miss Pennsylvania crown, but Miss Florida Karina Brez is publically denying the discovery. She said she did see a “rehearsal” list, but her statement about it being a list of finalists was a “throwaway comment” and was “never meant as fact”.
Donald Trump said Sheena was suffering “loser’s remorse”, and planned to take legal actions against her for her claims.
This pageant scandal is getting pretty messy. Somebody call up Seacrest for a reality show!
