Miss Dominican Republic’s Crown To Be Taken Away

By: Amanda Crum - April 25, 2012

Apparently it’s against the rules to be gorgeous and taken.

25-year old Carlina Duran will have her Miss Dominican Republic crown and title revoked tonight after it was discovered this week that she married in 2009, which is against the pageant’s policy. Duran was outed by a Dominican newspaper and will have to concede to runner-up Dulcita Leiggi, 24, at a press conference rather than go on to represent her country in the Miss Universe pageant.

    why did they let her in the pagent to begin with if she was married, Its their own fault for goofing up. Maybe she should keep the crown.
