The Miss Universe organization has launched an investigation into claims its pageant is fixed -- and now, Donald Trump says it's planning to sue the woman behind the accusations.

Former Miss Pennsylvania Sheena Monnin resigned from the competition yesterday ... claiming a fellow contestant had seen a list containing the top 5 contestants before they were officially announced.

Monnin called the pageant "fraudulent, lacking in morals, inconsistent, and in many ways trashy."

But this morning Miss U owner Trump fired back, telling "Today" Monnin's comments are "ridiculous" -- and the Miss Universe organization now plans to sue her over the accusations of fraud.

Trump said, "What we’ve authorized today is we’re going to bring a lawsuit ... She said some really strong things. When she’s using the word ‘fraud,’ that’s pretty strong, so we’re going to be suing her on that basis."

A rep for Miss Universe said the real reason Monnin resigned was because she disagreed with allowing transgender women to compete.

Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa. Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaa. Donald Trump can say anything he wants about anyone, the President included, calling everyone names using "strong" language. This pompous ahole is the biggest piece of &*#%, so full of himself and always calling other people names. He can dish it out but can never take it. With all that money too bad he can't fix that mop. Anyhow Donald you are a big piece of &*#%, now sue me. What I said was very strong.

Sounds like someone is a sore loser. Doesn't really matter, within a month she'll have a DUI, then a drug problem, then become a porn star. Lawsuit or no lawsuit.

SHE said some strong things so your suing? Okay great, then Obama gets to sue the heck out of you. Even ol' Newt doesn't know what Trump and the other birthers are thinking.


Donald talks smack about people all day long. But if someone says something about him he throws a hissy fit.

THiis is a Donnald Trump Organization competiton it is just like the apprentice who ever trump wants trump gets the rest as trump would say you fired. Hey Trump just remember the embarassing settlement the NFL had to pay when you sued them when you had your USFL football league does the amount of one dollar hit home hard for you.
