BATTLE FOR THE TIARA



Did everyone have a Happy Thanksgiving?? I did. It is still the best holiday, especially for the “binge & purge crowd

“Little Miss Sunshine” this ain’t. Did you see the story about the sabotage at the Miss Universe/Puerto Rico Pageant? Beauty queen Ingrid Marie Rivera beat 29 rivals to become the island's 2008 Miss Universe contestant, despite applying makeup and wearing evening gowns that had been coated with pepper spray, pageant spokesman Harold Rosario said. Rivera was composed while appearing before cameras and judges throughout the competition. But once backstage, she had to strip off her clothes and apply ice bags to her face and body, which swelled and broke out in hives twice.
"We thought at first it was an allergic reaction, or maybe nerves," Rosario said. "But the second time, we knew it couldn't have been a coincidence."
Rivera's clothing and makeup later tested positive for pepper spray.
Someone also stole Rivera's bag containing her gowns, makeup and credit cards. And a bomb threat forced pageant officials to postpone the last day of competition on Thursday, said Magali Febles, director of the Miss Puerto Rico Universe pageant.

Speaking of mean Queens…. Get a load of Camilla Parker Bowles all gussied up & literally dripping in diamonds. What is the British word for TACKY? Oh, right…tacky! On Friday, at the Queen's Banquet for the Commonwealth Heads of Government in Kampala, Uganda, Camilla, wore an opulent diamond necklace loaned to her by the Queen from the Royal Jewellery Collection and said to be worth tens of millions of pounds.
It was last worn by the Queen Mother in one of the final pictures taken of her before her death on March 30, 2002.
Famed for her love of the finer things in life, even she thought three strands of diamonds enough, just as she did when she wore it to a similar state banquet nearly 60 years ago.
Camilla, on the other hand, opted for the full five strands – and wasn't too shy (as if!)to accompany it with the Queen Mother's Boucheron tiara and a pair of heavy drop diamond earrings. My mother was right; you really can’t make a silk purse out of a sow’s ear! Also in the LONDON DAILY MAIL was this poll asking a sampling of women if they would ever curtsey to Camilla? Many said yes. I liked this woman’s take though:
"I couldn't bring myself to curtsey to Camilla. She is a mistress made good, a woman who acquired her royal status by virtue of persistent adultery with the Prince of Wales.
In doing so, she contributed to the break-up of two marriages, that of Charles and Diana, and her own.
I have rather more respect for the institution of marriage than of royalty, so I'm afraid I couldn't bring myself to make even a token bob"
. “A mistress made good” Don’t you love it?

BAM! Chef EMERIL LAGASSE OUT at The Food Network. Does anyone remember when NBC thought it a good idea to create a sit-com around this guy? Ugh!

Further proof that God has the most delicious sense of humor. You know that Sen. Trent Lott announced his resignation from the Senate today. Surprising all because he was just re-elected & is the 2nd most powerful Republican member of the Senate. Rumors are running rampant that the real reason ole Trent is resigning is due to the fact that LARRY FLYNT of HUSTLER fame is getting ready to drop a bombshell that has the married Lott involved with a young male escort. Oh Please let this be true!
