Sticks and Stones....

If you read my blog yesterday you saw that I made mention of the fact that I'm going to be judging Miss Teen Diamond Lakes on Saturday. For those of you who aren't into the whole pageant world and don't know, there is this thing called the Miss Arkansas message board. I never read it because I honestly forget it exists, but I thought about it tonight and decided to check it out to see who may be competing this weekend. To my surprise I came across this on the Diamond Lakes link.
--One of the judges is Kara Luttrell.....hmm. I've read some really racist things on her blog so I hope she is a fair judge!
And also....
--I am really disappointed to see that Kara is a judge. One of the four points of the Miss America crown is Scholarship, but Kara was unable to graduate from college after her GPA fell too low. I know she is only judging the teen pageant, and I know lots of people are successful without going to college, but I think someone who failed out of college is not a good example for our contestants.
Neat! First of all: wrong and wrong. Not to be all Denise Richards and try and 'set the record straight' but I have never written a single racist thing on this blog and I could totally prove it. Secondly, I didn't fail out of college because my GPA was too low. My GPA in college was just fine (more than fine) not that it's anybody's business. My decision to leave the UofA to attend Beauty School was a very, very hard decision for me. I thought and prayed about it for months and months. I have never, ever regretted my decision. I love my job and what I do. It makes me happy and that is all that matters.
Nearly 700 people have read that about me today and over 70 people have clicked on that link to take them to this blog.
I'm about 99.9% sure the same person wrote both of those posts and I'm about 100% sure I know who wrote them. I don't know anyone who would read this blog and also that message board but her who would write such a thing.
I really wish they would do away with this message board. It is full of nasty comments like these all the time. The contestants and their mothers that post these clearly have never been successful in the pageant system and this negative, rude attitude is most definitely the reason why the judges never picked you to win the big ones!
This girl today tried to cut me down and make me look bad. I honestly can't help but laugh. Anyone who knows me knows those things aren't true. As my best friend Jaclyn said 'far from it!'
So that was my day! Fun huh!
