Mrs. America Pageant Sues

We Gave You Our Women,

Where's Our Money?!

Mrs. America doesn't give it up for free ... even to bigshot TV producers ... and now the company behind the pageant is going after a network that aired the competition without paying up ... this according to a new lawsuit.

The Mrs. America pageant (it's like Miss America without the oral sex ... just KIDDING!) ... claims it had a deal with My Family TV to bank 50% of all ad revenue on the broadcast of the 2011 contest.

Mrs. America claims My Family TV  had 60 days to pay up after the May 8th broadcast -- which featured Florence Henderson BTW -- but the network has flaked out in a big way.

Now, Mrs. America is demanding their money -- more than $50,000.

So far, no comment from My Family TV.

This story just confirms my suspicion that TMZ employees have the maturity of 6th grade boys out in the playground snickering at nude photos. Does anyone who works at TMZ have anything more than an IQ of 90 and an education higher than junior high school? I don't think so and I'm NOT kidding. Idiots.

I've been visiting TMZ less and less due to the fact that their IT team is unable to keep those ridiculous ads from showing up under comments: top Nike air Jordan shoes33$,Air Force 1 33$ TMZ needs to fire the IT team and hire a new one that can control this sort of thing without burdening the legit posters any more.

Beauty pageants are so dumb. Take them off tv. Noone watches that garbage anymore.

People WOULD watch if they had like a, I don't know... lingerie competition INSTEAD of the swimsuits. Or maybe a pole dance competition INSTEAD of those really confusing and complicated questions they always get stumped on...

i thnink it is highly important, that women and girls of all ages and all social groups demonstrate incessantly, that they are by all means NOT! lesbians. i think it is important that they make it their personal obligation to demonstrate this over and over again, so that men have absoulte and total confirmation of this state. firmly. it is good for their bonds and it is good for society at large.

Why don't you have your IT staff add a button we can click on that says "Report Inappropriate Post" - they have this on Trip Advisor and it is really good for reporting spammers as well as other problems.
