Blogging from San Francisco Airport

clipped from misscal2009.blogspot.com
The first weekend of March I drove to Tulare County with Kathi Baldwin for the Miss Tulare County pageant. We had a great time! Everyone was so very sweet and hospitable and I stayed with the Smiths which was too fun! The pageant was wonderful and I had so much fun with the contestants at rehearsals and during interviews! And I had an incredible dinner before the pageant with the judges… complete with creme brulee! Yum! Congratulations to Anne Baker, Miss Tulare County 2010!
The next morning Kathi and I left bright and early and headed down to Malibu for Isabella’s birthday party. It was a great day and the girls had their own sashes, had a chance to show their talents and had fun learning about the different phases of competition. Happy Birthday Isabella and thank you for inviting me to your party!

Wife Swap Teen Beauty Queen Suing ABC

clipped from thestir.cafemom.com

But this latest drama that involves a child getting bullied, is making me a little bit uncomfortable.

Alicia Guastaferro appeared on Wife Swap with her absolutely appalling parents two years ago where she became known as the biggest brat in America. Now she’s eighteen and is suing ABC for $100 million accusing the show of misrepresenting her. The pageant winner has faced taunting, online and in real life after she said on national television that she felt sorry for people who were not gorgeous, and showed off her pageant glam and “sparkle.”

Guastaferro also claims the mistreatment was the reason she went from being on the honor roll to a special eduction class. (Although it’s obvious from watching the show the school discovered her parents were doing her homework, and put a stop to it. That would make your grades drop pretty danged quickly.)

Go Red for Women

clipped from missdelaware.blogspot.com
Being that February is Heart Month, every year at the Sheraton the American Heart Association has a Go Red for Women luncheon and fashion show. I had the honor of being a part of it and modeling my Heather French Henry gown from Miss America. This year they had to have it in the atrium and ballroom of the hotel in order to seat the number of guests that attended! All of the models looked fabulous. Local businesses had women model their fashions in support of heart health awareness.
