Miss Dominican Republic Carlina Duran
The woman who won the title of Miss Dominican Republic 2012 ... has been forced to relinquish her crown after officials discovered the ultimate skeleton in her closet -- A HUSBAND!!!

25-year-old Carlina Duran has been 86'd from her post ... after pageant officials say she violated a rule which requires all contestants to be single.

According to reports, Duran has been married since 2009 ... and never told anyone about her ol' ball and chain ... until AFTER she was outed as a MISSUS.

Now, the crown will be passed to the 1st runner-up -- Dulcita Lieggi.

So, we gotta ask ...

That's why it is called the MISS America Pageant.. there is a MRS. America Pageant. Why didn't she just enter the one for married women? Duh!?

She is not married! She was married very briefly, the marriage was annulled and she never lived with "her husband". She said that she didn't mention it before because she never considered it as a marriage; it was a juvenile thing she now regrets.

Seems to me "someone" should have looked in to this and it should have been noticed before her entering the pageant.

If this is a rule, I would think there would be a team that checked in to these kind of things.

I don't see any way someone should be mad since it's in the RULES that you have to be single. You'd have to be an idiot to not see it. You can't just break rules just because you don't agree with them.

So, you can't have a heterosexual marriage, but you can be born with a d-i-c-k between your legs?!? Douchebag Trump just wants chicks he can perv on. I hope all the rest of his contestant winners are trannys. Let's see him perv on them. What a disgrace!
