Another Beauty Queen

Bites the Dust

1/15/2007 2:16 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Ashley HarderIt has not been a good year for beauty queens. First, reigning Miss USA Tara Conner got called to The Donald's office and sent to rehab for a few "indiscretions," then Miss Nevada Katie Rees' crown was yanked after steamy photos of her surfaced on TMZ. Now Miss New Jersey Ashley Harder has resigned from her throne -- because she went and got herself knocked up!

The Philadelphia Daily News reports that the 20-year-old Harder has voluntarily stepped down, because it's against pageant rules to compete while pregnant. Not to mention how much tougher it is in heels. Harder, who was crowned in October, told the newspaper she's expecting her child in "late summer" and plans to marry her live-in boyfriend. As for Trump, a rep tells TMZ that he wishes the now former Miss New Jersey well.

The next Miss USA will be crowned on March 23 in Los Angeles. The winner of that competition goes on to compete in the Miss Universe pageant. Both pageants are owned by Donald Trump and NBC.

Pageant Princess,

You know SHIT! Miss America has sagging breasts and is a mediocre ballet dancer. The pageant is seen on CMT, a station no one will be watching. The pageant USED to be big. Now it's just a BIG NOTHING.

I can envision some girl who has no intention of honoring her title, going for a Miss Something or Other, because she will get so much free publicity. It's worked for Miss Nevada, who probably wouldn't even be a blip on the pageant radar, otherwise!

Jennifer Berry is a very intelligent young lady! She has to be, because of the many tight situations in which a Miss America finds herself . She meets with the elites, as well as the working class. She has to handle herself well, and know exactly what to say. No wonder these young women need a lot of pageant experience. It's all training for their larger goals in life!

Pageant Princess,

Who the hell cares how you spell her name? She's Miss America for 13 more days. Nobody cares. Her talent was mediocre, her boobs practically hit the floor, and she looked bored to tears the last few months of her reign. Miss America is not what it once was. Don't be an idiot. JENNIFER BERRY is not half as pretty at Tara Connor.

I wonder how many of the runner ups are pulling their hair out, because there seems to be so many crack pots that made it through.

All that work and she can't buy a box of condoms.

Pageant Princess,

I doubt the only title you ever won was MISS FART FACE 2006. You ugly piece of slub meat. Now go fart some more once you get your wide ass out the front door to buy some milk for your ugly cat.

Standards are badly needed.    

This photo of Miss Nevada looks like Satan's minion. Nasty.
She needs Bible camp or something, and I"M Shallow Hal...
Kiddies, be careful what you commit to celluloid before you're, say, 30 yrs old...

You guys can't be serious, a slut? From what I can tell, she's been with her boyfriend (now fiancee) for a long time, and really at least she's stepping down gracefully instead of kicking and screaming as the crown is dragged away from her.
