Miss Pennsylvania

Miss SC & Miss CO Were

Too Ugly for Top 16

EXCLUSIVE

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.

Does this chick have an Elvis fixation or something?
Who walks around looking like Priscilla Presley circa 1967?

both these girls are better looking than miss penn. what a pathetic piece of trash...sore losers are a fact of life but she is out of control. you lost bitch, it wasnt because anything was rigged its because ur not that pretty, you have a bad attitude, you have no class, and you lack the grace, demeanor, and tack required in a winner. get over it and find a new career cause u just assured your days as a beauty queen are over!

Doesn't she realize that 90% of her so-called "beauty" can be wiped off with an effin' kleenex?

Yep.

Yep :D

She doesn't know when to keep a tight lip, she's destroying her public image, and sabotaging her future career opportunities.
Just one little 2-minute public apology and admission that she lied...or that she misunderstood...and she'd avoid years of repercussions.

I have a serious question to ask that is completely unrelated to this story.....Does anyone know what kind of App people are using when you see the dialogue between people showing up in those cartoon-like bubbles/comic strip style (as shown here)?? Do you need a certain type of phone like an iPhone or is it an App that anyone can download?? If anyone can help me out, that would be appreciated...thanks:)

You got to be kidding me. Pennsylvania is the worst looking of the three states in the article. Plus Ms. Penn has the boy of a 12 year old boy - great for Sandusky, but not for normal guys.

I gotta agree with her. Those other 2 are HIDEOUS. I wouldn't want that crap representing me. Not that PA is all that good looking, but she's certainly better then those other two heifers.

I can't really tell the difference between the three of them. They all look like clones, and being dark-haired, they all look kinda hairy too.

I rank them from high to low: Colorado, South Carloina, Pennsylvania. I agree with the comment about the drwn in eye brows! They look like Uncle Leo's on Seinfeld!
