It was a pretty calm morning here in pop culture news, and then...this:
"As a Miss San Antonio reigning queen, she has to live up to our rules and regulations and the standards of our contract...She was doing a photo shoot and asked to wear her wardrobe from the competition, but it did not fit her. I told her we need to get you on an exercise program. We need to get ready to compete for Miss Texas, just like any elite athlete." - Linda Woods, spokesperson for the Miss Bexar County Organization, explaining why Miss San Antonio, Domonique Ramirez, had her title revoked.
So the 17 year-old Ramirez lost her crown for gaining weight. That's cool. Nothing about that makes me crazy. I don't see any reason why a teenager shouldn't be fired from her post in a "scholarship competition" for growing. Make perfect sense.
Ramirez is suing the board for unfair termination. I'm mixing a bloody mary. Good morning!
