Crowned gets a second season?


As I was surfing the web this morning, I came upon a casting call for The CW’s Crowned: The Mother of All Pageants. Even if this reality competition is not the best reality TV show on the block, it seems that The CW thinks it did good enough to potentially grant Crowned a second season. Then again, maybe the pageant show will get a second chance only because The CW is running out of new episodes for its scripted shows.

The network has yet to officially announce the renewal of the show. However, a casting call was sent yesterday to find, once again, mother and daughter teams for a second season of the series. They are looking for “gorgeous mothers and their grown up daughters to compete together as a team in a one-of-a-kind beauty pageant” and get the chance to win $100,000 prize and “a fabulous pair of tiaras.” Contestants are not required to have pageant experience.

Miss France 2008 Banned From Miss Universe Pageant

Editor’s Note: Racy photos are included in this post. Be advised.

PARIS – Miss France will get to keep her crown despite the racy photos of her that recently appeared in a gossip magazine.

However, organizers of the Miss France contest said Friay that 22-year-old Valerie Begue will not compete in the upcoming Miss World or Miss Universe pageants.

Begue, who won the Miss France 2008 title on Dec. 8, describes the outcome as “a compromise which satisfies all parties.”

Photos published in Entrevue magazine last week included one of a bikini-clad Begue lying on a cross in a swimming pool.

Another showed her licking what appeared to be yogurt or evaporated milk.

Miss International CAUGHT!

Priscila

Mexican beauty Priscila Perales, winner of the 2007 Miss International, isn’t as innocent as she looks. Ms. Perales was caught drunk driving this past week in her hometown of San Pedro. After miserably failing a breathalyzer test, Ms. Perales was ordered to pay a fine of 5.439 pesos.

Paying about $501 in U.S. dollars doesn’t cut it for me. They should have confiscated the fancy BMV she was driving, and taken her precious crown away!

ANNA – Miss Illinois Ashley Hatfield will make one more stop at her old high school before heading to Las Vegas to compete in the Miss America Pageant.

The Anna native will attend a send-off party at 7 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 5, in the Anna-Jonesboro High School auditorium. The party will feature a fashion show where Hatfield will model her wardrobe and perform the song she will sing at the pageant. Anna residents and dignitaries will attend.

One of those in attendance will be her former trigonometry teacher Brett Dengeren, assistant principal at AJHS. Dengeren said Hatfield is much more than a pretty face and he is glad to see her get the attention.

“She was an excellent student,” he said. “She worked very, very hard. I could tell she had a high level of excellence she held herself to.”
