“It is an expensive lesson for ex-Miss Pennsylvania Sheena Monnin”, said Donald Trump to the press after Sheena lost a $5 Million lawsuit against him for making false claims.
Earlier this year, Monnin claimed that the Miss Universe Organization, which is owned and run jointly by Trump and NBC Universal, is rigged and that at least in the pageant she was in, the top five ladies had been pre-selected. She didn’t stop there, but added that it is “not just fraudulent, but lacking in morals, inconsistent, and in many ways trashy.”
Trump fired back by saying: “We cannot allow a disgruntled contestant to make false and reckless statements which are damaging to the many people who have devoted their hearts and souls to the Miss Universe, Miss USA and Miss Teen USA pageant systems.”
In the end, Trump took home the win with a $5 Million settlement against Sheena as decided by Judge Theodore H. Katz.
What do you think, is the Miss Universe Organization Rigged?
