Miss Washington Blames Seedy Friends

7/9/2008 9:31 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Miss Washington should know better -- everything shows up on the Internet!

In a press conference today in Tacoma, Wash., Elyse Umemoto said the photos posted earlier today on TMZ were "stolen electronically" by someone she trusted.

Miss Bad Apple claims the photos were shot over two years ago, while she was Miss Seattle. The Executive Director of the pageant tells us the matter has been referred to authorities for investigation, although when we talked to local cops, they had no idea what we were talking about.

Umemoto -- who gets to keep her crown -- will be on hand this Saturday night to crown her successor.

Maybe the time has come to get rid of these corny pageants. You don't see men parading around in bathing suits or displaying "talents" like singing when they actually plan to become attorneys. Enough, already.

I have seen worse. Those photos are nothing. That is all we need is more scandal. The lady is just having fun, take a look at more pictures from other young people and see how many are doing the same thing and everyone is saying that they are just having fun. GIMME A BREAK PEOPLE!!!!

Do people actually attend pageants, other than friends and relatives? I don't see any purpose or entertainment value in them.

Her upbringing and background are obvious contributors to who she is "in private". We should all thank her for sharing that privacy with us so we come to know how truly phony these Pageants and their Participants have become.

She has shamed the Pagent, her Family and Herself. Learn to Live with it the Rest of your Days My Dear.

What a stupid bitch! Blame yourself! It's not like she didn't know what she signed up for when entering this stupid pageant. It's always someone elses fault.
