    Pittsburgh Post-GazetteMiss Pennsylvania USA has stepped down from her position, citing dishonesty in last weekend's Miss USA pageant in Las Vegas, a claim the event's parent organization says is bogus.

    Sheena Monnin, 27, called the Miss Universe Organization "fraudulent, lacking in morals, inconsistent, and in many ways trashy" in a post on her personal Facebook page. The Cranberry native claims a fellow contestant told her that before the pageant began, she saw a list of five finalists in an open folder, names that later matched the judges' top five contestants.

    In a statement, the Miss Universe Organization confirmed Ms. Monnin's resignation, but said she cited the organization's policy concerning transgender pageant contestants as her reason for stepping down.

    "Today she has changed her story by publicly making false accusations claiming that the pageant was fixed," the organization's statement read.

    The statement also included text from an email Ms. Monnin sent to Randy Sanders, her manager and director of the Miss Pennsylvania USA pageant, dated 7:25 a.m. PDT, Monday: "Randy, 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," the email reads. "This goes against every moral fiber of my being."

    Mr. Sanders said he talked with Ms. Monnin on April 13 about her concerns with the rule, enacted two months ago, that allows transgender women to compete in pageants, but he was surprised she resigned Monday. Asked whether he thought Ms. Monnin's charges were sour grapes over having lost the contest, Mr. Sanders said, "Yeah, I have to agree with that."

    "Obviously I feel she believes it, and obviously I disagree with her," he said. "I do believe firmly that this was a fair, legitimate pageant."

    The contestant Ms. Monnin said told her about the list has not spoken publicly.

    Ms. Monnin said in her Facebook post that many people had sent her messages "requesting and at times demanding" she come forward with information regarding her abrupt resignation. As of Tuesday evening, scores of Facebook users have commented on Ms. Monnin's, many in support of her resignation.

    "I agree that it is my moral obligation to state what I witnessed and what I know to be true," she wrote.

    According to Ms. Monnin's post, after the top 16 finalists were named, the woman who allegedly saw the list "hesitantly said" to Ms. Monnin and another contestant that she knew who would be in the top five.

    "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," Ms. Monnin wrote. She said the top five women named later were identical to those observed by the contestant.


    Get yo' Birth Certificate ready, Miss Cranberry!

    Pittsburgh Post-GazetteMiss USA pageant co-owner Donald Trump said this morning he will sue Cranberry native Sheena Monnin for having called the event "fraudulent, lacking in morals" on her Facebook page.

    "When she uses the word 'fraud,' that's pretty strong," Mr. Trump said in an interview with NBC's "Today" this morning. "So we are suing her on that basis."

    In his "Today" interview, Mr. Trump said he has met Ms. Monnin only briefly.

    "My impression was, she didn't have a chance of being in the top 15, not even close ... this is a girl who went there, lost ... and she's angry at the pageant system."

    You know what, probably the best move she could possibly make. Get your name smeared in the media. Look hot. Have people feel sorry for you because you're on the receiving end of a Trump lawsuit. Become even more famous/infamous then you did as a pageant also-ran.

    It's true. She'll be guest-speaking at many more Xiantist pancake breakfasts, chicken dinners, and pig roasts than some random "Non-Finalist"...

    (I was gonna say something crude like, "...until her face falls off." But then there's Maggie Gallagher).

    Whatever you say.

    It boils down to every other "woman" on stage would get laughed out of the show if they had radical plastic surgery. This isn't The Swan.

    It kinda is... both vapid shows about being pretty. And your comment about surgery is irrelevant because you said a man should not be in this competition and last time I checked there was no man..

    Like 90% of the other contestants. Funny enough, they all look like drag queens to some extent.

    Yet another great story to come out of the state of PA (which I left many years only to have to return). PA has Philly on the east, Pittsburgh on the west and a whole lot of Alabama in between.

    It wasn't a totally down year for Donald Trump!

    http://news.yahoo.com/arbitrator-beauty-queen-defamed-pageant-141809467.html

    AP via Yahoo!NEW YORK (AP) -- A beauty queen who claimed this year's Miss USA contest was fixed has been ordered to pay the pageant organization $5 million for defamation.

    In a decision signed last week, an arbitrator found that the comments from Miss Pennsylvania USA Sheena Monnin were false, harmful and malicious. Monnin had alleged that the five finalists had been selected in advance of the pageant's live telecast.

    The arbitrator, Theodore Katz, said Monnin had two motives: "She was a disgruntled contestant who failed to make it past the preliminary competition" and she objected to the pageant's decision to allow transgender contestants. He wrote that the way the contest is judged "precludes any reasonable possibility that the judging was rigged."

    Monnin, of Cranberry, Pa., resigned her state title after the pageant. Her allegations on Facebook and NBC's "Today" show cost the pageant a $5 million fee from a potential 2013 sponsor, Katz said...

    Katz said Monnin agreed to arbitrate any disputes when she became a Miss USA contestant, but he wrote in his decision that she and her lawyer didn't participate in the process and claimed they were not required to do so.


    And, whatever happened to the woman who answered with class about the possibility of transgendered contestants on her way to winning Miss USA, you ask? Well... icon_lol.gif
