Planning your Pageant Year…

clipped from globalbeauties.com

Working in the pageant industry is exciting, and at the same time, stressful.  It doesn’t matter if you are a fan, a director, or a blogger.  The excitement of these annual events enter our lives several times a year.

2009 got to a slow start. Most contests have been moved to the 2nd half of the year.  But those of you who love to plan ahead might enjoy reading these lines.

As confirmed by the Miss Universe Organization, the 2009 Miss USA pageant will take place at the Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino on Sunday, April 19th.  Those who enjoy the show as well as seeing the contestants up close will be excited to plan ahead for this event.  Who knows, you might be able to catch the next Miss Universe (Last year, Dayana Mendoza attended the event).

Miss America hopes to see Super Bowl champ crowned

clipped from www.bradenton.com

Fresh from becoming Miss America, Katie Stam would like to see another winner crowned this weekend.

Only one problem: She doesn’t have a ticket to the Super Bowl.

“I’m still hoping,” Stam said Friday.

Super Bowl Football

The 22-year-old University of Indianapolis student won her title Saturday night in Las Vegas. She’s in town this weekend for “Taste of the NFL,” a charitable event that combines chefs, athletes and entertainers.

Stam was the first Miss Indiana to win the pageant. This Hoosier said her favorite sport is football, not hoops.

“I know, it’s supposed to be basketball,” she said.

She was raised in Seymour, about 60 miles south of Indianapolis. Rather than the home-state Colts, she roots for the Chicago Bears. That’s the team her boyfriend of three years cheers for.

Update: Snubbed Miss New York tells us she’s not bitter

There’s only one person who disputes that the Miss America Organization made an egregious error when it snubbed Miss Brooklyn Leigh-Taylor Smith: Leigh-Taylor Smith.

Showing the grace and style that she has shown throughout the grueling death march that is our nation’s premiere beauty pageant, Smith told The Brooklyn Paper on Tuesday that she did not feel snubbed, betrayed, abused, let down or otherwise dismissed by the panel of judges that made Miss Indiana, Katie Stam, this year’s Miss America.

“No, the fix was not in,” Smith told me by phone when this columnist suggested that the fix was, um, in. “I was right up there with the others, in the final five, because it was a fair process.”

Readers of this column have long known that I have little respect for the Miss America Organization.

Miss D.C.: Washington will one day take the crown!

clipped from www.dcexaminer.com
Gosh darn it … another Miss America beauty pageant and another miss for D.C.’s candidate. In fact, no D.C. beauty has taken up the crown since D.C.’s own Margaret Gorman won the pageant’s very first title back in 1921.

This year, the winner was Indiana’s Katie Stam, but we caught up with D.C.’s representative, Kate Marie Grinold, who did crack the pageant’s top ten.

“D.C. will absolutely win it one day!” she told us. “It’s just a matter of time.”
