What is it with these Miss USA contestants?

    I'm sure there's a morality clause that goes along with the title (Miss Wherever). Sure, none of the "contestants" are as pure as the driven snow -- and everybody already knows that -- but, once you get a title, you're held to a high standard than those who don't have one. Think about it, if she was Jane Doe this wouldn't be such a big deal. And sure, being Miss Wherever is usually 15 minutes of fame for someone. But, during those 15 minutes, all eyes and digital cameras are trained on you. Seems like someone should have told the young lady that beforehand.

    As far as Rosie goes, she has a right to her opinion -- but, she's wrong. This has little to do with The Donald's track record and more to do with the image of Miss Wherever. If we're saying that it's perfectly acceptable for Miss Wherever to be out tounging down other chicks in public, then move the festivities to the local strip club of your choice where Cinnamon, Destiny or Alize' can have a shot at the title too.

    Play on.

    No offense, but that's ridiculous. Maybe in some utopian society, everyone will be judged by the same standard. But, back here in real world...if Miss Wherever decides to go GGW, she may be stripped of her title. Just like if you went GGW (Guys Gone Wild, which seems a little gay odd to me), you may get your walking papers from the publication/station/etc. that you work for today.

    I agree with that part and I also hate it when Entertainment Tonight is somehow referred to as "journalism." But, this is the world we live in, dude. And everybody knows that once you gain the slightest measure of fame, more is expected of you. Like I said before, her handlers should have (and I'm sure they did at some point) illuminated the terrain for her. There are lots of people waiting for you to screw up so they can record the evidence of said screw-up for posterity.

    I'll say this about Miss Nevada: If she's not a lesbian, I guarantee you the lesbian community, after seeing that tongue, has a full-court press recruitment under way.

    The difference, I'm sure, is in the evidence. I've wondered about exactly what Miss USA did, because I haven't seen a single snapshot or piece of grainy video from a cell phone capturing her escapades. Maybe it's because nobody really give a crap what Miss USA does because that's way less prestigious than Miss America. In fact, if it wasn't for personal testimony on this board about the girl's partying past ways in KY (the state, not the jelly), I'd say The Donald drummed this up to boost the pageant's visibility.
