Philadelphia Latina Pageants

On December 20, 2008, Susan Huntley and I were invited to judge the Philadelphia Latina Pageants. We had a great time!! I have never judged a pageant that was entirely in Spanish, but I have also never had so much fun judging a pageant. The audience was so supportive of all the contestants and the pageant director / organization was incredible. Congratulations to all of the winners!
Thank you to Dally Rodriguez, the outgoing Mrs. Philadelphia Latina and the current Mrs. Philadelphia PA US 2009, for inviting Susan and I to judge the event.

Miss Sinaloa stripped of the Miss Hispanoamericana title she won in Bolivia only a month ago.

LA PAZ — Mexican beauty queen Laura Zuñiga Huizar, detained in her homeland along with a group of presumed drug traffickers this week, has been stripped of the Miss Hispanoamericana title she won in Bolivia, the press in that Andean nation reported Saturday.
The decision was taken Friday by the Bolivia-based Promociones Gloria, which organizes beauty pageants in Bolivia and on Oct. 31 awarded Zuñiga that title in the eastern city of Santa Cruz.
Promociones Gloria said the decision to remove the title is a “consequence of events of public knowledge in which Miss Laura Zuñiga has been involved,” the daily El Deber de Santa Cruz reported.
According to the daily, Tatiana Limpias, manager of Promociones Gloria company, said Zuñiga violated a rule that requires the pageant winner to demonstrate “adequate behavior, avoid scandals and bad habits and be a good example for society.”

Jessica shows off her brain as well as her beauty

Jessica Waugh

A STUDENT from Gosforth in Newcastle is vying to become the next Miss Student UK and showing she has brains as well as beauty.

The competition is branded as an alternative to the stereotypical beauty pageant. Contenders must prove they are more than just a pretty face.

And now 21-year-old Jessica Waugh, from Rectory Terrace in Gosforth, Newcastle, is trying to show she has what it takes.

Last night Jessica said: “I kind of got involved for a dare and a bit of a laugh really. But the competition is supposed to be like the opposite to a beauty pageant – they say you need more than just a pretty face.

“I thought it would be like an investigation to see if that’s true.

“I want to prove that women should be judged on their academic achievements and that it’s not just a beauty pageant.”
