Miss Pennsylvania

Miss SC & Miss CO Were

Too Ugly for Top 16

Miss Colorado
and Miss South Carolina shouldn't have made the Top 16 at the Miss USA pageant this year because they lacked in the face ... this according to ex-Miss Pennsylvania Sheena Monnin.

Miss USA organization sources gave TMZ text messages it claims Sheena sent to a pageant official during the Miss USA competition ... in which Sheena first says the competition was rigged.

In the text exchange, Sheena writes, "Colorado? South Carolina? I'm done. This is ridiculous. It's obviously rigged so the girl they want can shine; they kept several beautiful girls out for that reason."

Miss USA sources believe the text messages show Sheena's conspiracy theory is emotionally-motivated ... NOT based on any facts ... and is therefore BS.

Sheena has recently claimed she learned another contestant saw a secret Miss USA document which contained the names of the Top 5 finalists before they were announced ... and even though Sheena never personally saw the document, she refuses to admit she could be wrong. 

(The Miss Universe organization has filed a defamation claim against Sheena for making the allegation.)

The texts don't exactly disprove Sheena's rigged theory -- but they DO show how shamelessly catty pageants are behind the scenes.

Calls to Monnin, Miss CO Marybel Gonzalez, and Miss SC Erika Powell were not returned.

For the record, we think they're hot.

A statement from Miss Universe Organization President Paula M. Shugart, released Wednesday, said that "to suggest the pageant is somehow orchestrated or 'rigged' is utterly false and misleading."

However, the statement also observed that Trump does play a role in selecting the finalists.

"In the 2009 Miss Universe competition, a preliminary panel of judges selected nine of the Top 15 and members of the Miss Universe Organization, including owner Donald J. Trump, selected the remaining six," the statement began.

-Per CNN

The choreographer tried to retract his story, no doubt after Trump's goons showed up threatening to break his legs and make sure he never worked for the pageant again. Why would someone go into such detail then try to retract it... just makes no sense.

Anyway, bottom line - ITS RIGGED.

Sheena is actually the worst looking of the trio. She's "done" with what? Done watching the show? No one cares!

Don't watch the show. Based on the pics shown here, though...... both Colorado and S. Carolina contestants look better than she does by far. I think she's just a spoiled, sore loser.

Trump has already confirmed there was a list. He said it was a rehersal list. He should provide video of the rehersal to see if the five that were finalists in rehersal were the real finalists. If they are then Trump is in trouble. Otherwise Miss PA's recollection could be shaded by her views.

If in fact the 16 were pre-selected wouldn't this show up in contestants who one would not expect to be selected? The pre-selection would be evidenced in irregularities and an emotional reaction to those irregularities would be understandable as one of the "myriad" of reasons Sheena mentioned. What is the truth?

The MUO could have put all this to rest last week by disclosing voting procedures and scores. This would honor Sheena's legitimate concerns from the "list incident." Instead of trying to discredit Sheena, transparently show us all why she was wrong to believe Miss Florida.

Why doesn't the MUO disclose the pageant scores? Why not assume that Ms Monnin believed Miss Florida and instead of trying to discredit here, they show her why her concerns about the pageant being rigged is unjustified?

Seems like this would be much more humane than suing a 27 year old girl who is only seeking the truth and fairness.

An unattractive face is never a problem. That's why they make brown paper bags! With a body like these two women have, I could even skip the bag.

The more this idiot opens her mouth, the uglier she becomes. Beauty is more than just looks.
