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.

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

It's not a stupid rule. It is not discrimination. They have pageants for married women. Mrs. World is an example of this. It clearly states in the rules you must never have been married. She should have tried for Mrs. Dominican Republic.

Transexuals who have sexual reassessment surgery are LEGALLY women. Married women are not LEGALLY single. I was pretty sure the title "MISS" gave away the fact that it was for unmarried women, but apparently not.She clearly knew she was in the wrong hence her hiding her marriage. She could have just as easily entered into the "MRS." pageant. It's her own damn fault
