With all the controversy surrounding Miss California's insensitive remarks, something very important is being overlooked.

And that is that the beautiful Miss North Carolina, Kristen Dalton, won. She is the new Miss USA, and we are proud to have helped her get that title! She earned it!

Sunday night marked the second time a beauty from NC has won the title. The last time was back in 2005.

Dalton won both the swimsuit and evening gown competitions. Or did Miss California forget that?

A bit more about Kristen!

The 22-year-old aspiring motivational speaker is currently in college, majoring in Psychology and Spanish at East Carolina University. An Honors student. Beauty and brains! And she's a "financially independent" student as she's worked different jobs while in college.

As for her desires, Miss USA continues to aspire to be a motivational speaker and hopes to run her own charity one day.

How could you get any better?

Definitely the best contestant won!

    miss whatever is jackin' Kathy Griffin's swag in the 1st photo.
    hey Kathy…you've got the body of a 22 year beauty pagent winner…
    you go girl!
    lol



  3. 3

    she's also chad michael murray's sister-in-law



  4. 4

    gorgeous gorgeous gorgeous. love her. she gives us blondes a good name. love her. love her !!!!!!!
    LOVE . HER.

    as for that other twat,….. miss california, she can go wallow in her own sorrow — cry over a tub of ice cream or hide that over processed blonde bob in a dark hole for a while while she thinks about what she has done and said.

    idiot. silly overconservative blonde idiot. its people like her that are stuck in the past that ruin the image of your country, thank GOD MISS NC won.



  5. 5

    How do you know that she doesn't share the same views as Miss California? Did you ask her the same question?



  6. 6

    Oh for goodness sakes! Nobody forgot about who won. I think the problem is……..that we are wondering if Miss California should have won but since you were a judge she didn't!



  7. 7

    she is gorgeous
    and so is that dress



  8. 8

    they look exactly the same >,



  9. 9

    Her face is prettier. She doesn't have the strong smiles lines as does Miss CA. Miss Carolina will age better.



  10. 10

    Good for once someone isn't an idiot like Tara Conner!

    And sweet deal being (almost) related to Chad Michael Murray… even if he is a skeaze. :)



  11. 11

    good for her!!



  12. 12

    You have managed to take the focus off of who was the best contestant and turn this into an attack on conservative values.

    GROW UP! I have spoken to a few of my gay friends already today and they hate you Perez. Everyone with any sense sees this for what it is, an attack on a woman who just happends to have different values and a different point of view.

    You are coming across as hateful and foolish. Carrie is looking more and more eloquent and classy with every passing minute.



  13. 13

    Oh yeah definantly someone who supports welfare and doesnt support something that might save peoples jobs deserves to win. She is such a great person.



  14. 14

    she's hottt



  15. 15

    First of all, I hope they ban your ass from doing this again. It was nothing more than an ambush on her. Would you have asked her the question if she was from Texas?? Would you ask a black canidate from Alabama if the south should apologize for slavery?? It was stupid, and you used your "job" to futher your own fucking agenda. How long are we going to beat this dead horse??Your side LOST. It's over. Get over it. She IS entitled to her opinion, and it does not make it wrong because it is not yours. Take your stupidity, and in her view, you are a moron. This was NOT the Miss GAY USA….and for your information, the majority of Americans DO NOT favor your agenda.



  16. 16

    Yah she did win…..but thanks to your bitch ass the whole world is now paying more attention to your ugly face and your stupid ass question. If people are saying negative things about gays, its all because of you. IF I were gay, I would be ashamed to have someone as pathetic as you TRYING to stand up for the gays. Your single handily making people annoyed with the gays. Good job Perez. I never cared either way, but your really making yourself and the gay community look like a bunch of whiny little bitches.



  17. 17

    HA- You have NOTHING to do with her winning, except you crushed the hopes of Miss California, who DESERVED to win with her honesty. The only reason NC won is because you probably gave CA a zero for not supporting gay marriage. Thank God SOMEONE finally speaks their mind and stands up for "how they were raised". Who cares whether or not she supports it? At least she had the guts to say it. THAT'S what we really need in a Miss America–not someone whose going to fawn for the judges.



  18. 18

    How can you say she earned a title that you "helped" her get? That makes no sense. If you think she deserves the credit, then give it to her. Don't include yourself in, patting yourself on the back as if YOU deserve some of the credit.

    That is like saying Miss North Carolina's judge deserves some of the credit for her win, because of the question he asked. Which is bull. It is the contestant's answer that makes or breaks them. Not the judge's question.



  19. 19

    Do you know how she feels about gay marriage ass? "financially independent" means she's a hooker.



  20. 20

    LOL..Um, you still dont know…her answer to your question may have been the same. Then What? You hate on them both? She could be a conservative through and through..she just wasnt asked the same controversial question.



  21. 21

    is it just me or doe miss NC look exactly like Miss Cal? lol



  22. 22

    WHY DOES YOUR WEBSITE KEEP REDIRECTING ME TO ADS?????

    and nice post, but this doesn't make up for it. You create 20 posts about her opponent, and think you can do damage control with one? Fail

    But she is stunningly beautiful



  23. 23

    She's way prettier than Miss Cali, I agree the best girl won.



  24. 24

    no matter how great is she, miss california is better, she would have won and was the fore-runner the whole time. she lost for being honest.
    Miss USA is the sloppy seconds and u know it!



  25. 25

    you're not supposed to 'help' anyone win as a judge fatgirl….. you're such a piece of junk oerez…



  26. 26

    Great Live broadcast on CNN this morning! I totally agree with you about this whole thing. She could have had a lot more tact in her response to your question. Yay for Miss North Carolina! Care to speculate on what her answer might have been to the same question? Peace! and keep up the spectacular work!



  27. 27

    Re: MissManners – I BET SHE DOES…



  28. 28

    Perez,

    I've been reading your blog for years and over the years have had many laughs and enjoyed several of your postings and comments. However, lately it seems like you're taking it a bit too far. It's understandable that you're upset with Miss California's response; however, this is a country where we are entitled to freedom of speech and how can we be individuals if we all think the same way? I'm not saying I agree or disagree with her, but she spoke from honesty and I would rather have someone be honest than just say something they thought everyone wanted to hear.



  29. 29

    Perez, finally you got to what it was about the winner. I love you but seriously you cant go on about a girl who doesnt have the same opinion as you do. You have blasted Ms California in the Media, Net, TV anywhere you can and it makes you look bad. So what she has a different opinion, and as a gay man I agree with her not you. I love ya but come on chill the fuck out and thank you for finally showing the winner here.



  30. 30

    hell they could be twins…. just sayin :)



  31. 31

    Congrats to Miss North Carolina!!!

    Finally Mario, you remembered the most important part of the pageant!!!



  32. 32

    Nobody cares about this, Pervez. Quit dragging this DEAD HORSE out just to beat off on it.



  33. 33

    She's really hot I would def put my wiener between those buns.



  34. 34

    wow.. bitter much?



  35. 35

    MISS CALIFORNIA DESERVED THE WIN. SHE HAS MORE CLASSY BEAUTY,AND IS A LOT MORE SMARTER.



  36. 36

    I don't really care what Miss CA said she should won. I personally like Miss NC much better too. She is so pretty and smart. Yep !!! Agree ppl overlook at her from Whiney Miss CA which is sad :)



  37. 37

    YAY! i just moved to north carolina and i LOVE it!!! she did have the better response. people forget that miss california sounded like an idiot! "opposite marriage"? wtf?!



  38. 38

    So… I saw this broad in the mall givin the sales people a hard time becasue they didn't offer credit lines!! It's all about being able to put on a good front and say the right thing at the right time, but in the real world this chick has her nose in the air!! Still Proud she's reppin NC for us though!!!



  39. 39

    Oh for crying out loud!!! MOVING ON!

    how can you call ms. california an insentive bitch? who do you thing you are and since when is every american supposed to think the same about gay marriage because you know what? they dont, oh man wow, what a shocker you small minded dick. get over it jesus, not everyone embraces the gay culture just like any other choices us americans have. so get the fuck over it and grow upbecause you look, sound and speak your arguments like a little bitch.

    MISS CALIFORNIA LOOKS LIKE A TRANNY, HAS ANYONE LOOKED DOWN THERE FOR HER MEAT AND TWO VEG?
    SHE IS A MAN AND THAT IS THE REASON WHY SHE LOST, MISS NORTH CAROLINA IS BEAUTIFUL.
    PS: MISS CARLIFORNIA IS AN EMBARASSMENT TO THE BEAUTIFUL STATE OF CALIFORNIA.
    SUCK IT BITCH!



  43. 43

    Thanks to Perez, NOBODY will remember who won the pageant.
    .
    To Miss Califonria: You go girl!!



  44. 44

    Wow she looked gorgeous in that dress, congrats to her :)



  45. 45

    miss who?….she's already been forgotten….thanks to you fuckface



  46. 46

    Yay Miss North Carolina! Care to speculate on what her answer to the same question might be?
    I totally agree with you about this whole thing, Perez. Miss Ca. should have had a lot more tact in sharing her opinion on gay marriage.
    As for Ron in FLA. He deserves to have his info posted. He chose to email you hateful comments in the first place. Peace and smiles to you, Perez!



  47. 47

    Yesterday you said Miss California was sure to win until she spouted off with the anti gay marriage remark. So, you changed your vote from Miss California to Miss North Carolina……..don't try to cover up now.



  48. 48

    She wasnt given the same opportunity to answer the same question as Miss California so we will never know. Mario… you need to seriously grow up.



  49. 49

    Oh, Perez stop trying to get the attention off of you and your dumb and intolerant remarks. Ms. California has a right to her opinion, just as you. You want to people to accept her beliefs, and so does she.

    Stop behaving like a baby and accept that you got owned by Miss California. She took this matter with grace, and above all with lots of class, which you have shown none.

    Move on before you come out looking worse than you already have. BTW I voted no on 8 and believe that no religious beliefs should come between civil ones. Anyone who wants to delve into marriage (God knows why) should be able to. Everyone has a right to suffer!



  50. 50

    Did anyone else notice how the people in crowd holding up a sign for Miss California were spelling "C A L I F O R I N A"? Nice job.



  51. 51

    Of course you think she's the best contestant. She agrees with your views..or do you know for sure that she does?.. If some other judge asked Miss Cali. a different question and she won based on that you would be singing her praises so it just goes to show that one opinion doesn't make a person and you shouldn't be bashing that poor girl for an opinion not only held by her but millions of people. You will not be able to change everybody's opinion on being gay and gay marriage. Unfortunately what will happen is Christian and Muslim people will be viewed as terrible, 'in the dark' people and what we believe will no longer matter even though we have religious freedom. Christian people are the basis for many organizations around the world that help people with many problems. You cannot say that they are terrible people as a whole based on just one thing. Just as you wish people would see it from your view maybe you should see it from others.



  52. 52

    MISS USA……??? Whatever….

    MY Miss Usa this year will forever be Miss California…… for speaking up for the majority of the country. Stop telling me what I am suppose to think…..

    Miss California is my Miss USA!



  53. 53

    Thank you for finally recognizing the actual winner. It took you long enough. NC produces some of the most beautiful women in the US. Not only are the beautiful on the outside, but they are absolutely gorgeous on the inside as well. We are very proud of Kristen across our beautiful state.



  54. 54

    I wonder how she would have answered your question? Guess we will never know. Perez, you are a disgrace to the gay community, if I were gay I would not want you on my side. It is one thing to speak out for gay rights, but you go to far. That poor girl answered her question, you didnt like it, so you have set out to ruin this girls life. Fucking shame on you, you fat pig! I am done, and I hope others are too!



  55. 55

    She was 100% deserving to win… BUT… Being that this is a gossip site… I'm so surprised Perez that you didn't mention the fact that she's the sister of Kenzie Dalton, who happens to be married to "One Tree Hill" and teen movie actor Chad Michael Murray.



  56. 56

    Finally, a beauty pageant winner with brains!



  57. 57

    YOU ARE SUCH A BULLY PEREZ

    LEAVE MISS CALI ALONE

    YOU GIVE GAYS A BAD NAME



  58. 58

    YOU ARE BEHAVING LIKE A BIGOT MR PEREZ. I PERSONALLY BELIEVE THAT GAY COUPLES SHOULD BE ABLE TO ENJOY THE SAME RIGHTS AND RESPONSIBILITIES AS STRAIGHT COUPLES. BUT, I ALSO BELIEVE THIS YOUNG WOMAN (AND MANY MILLIONS OF OTHERS IN THE WORLD) ARE ENTITLED TO VIEW 'MARRIAGE' AS BEING BETWEEN A MAN AND A WOMAN. WHY DON'T YOU APLAUD HER RIGHT TO FREEDOM OF CONSCIENCE AND SPEECH INSTEAD OF TRYING TO SHUT HER DOWN - IS THE USA NO LONGER A DEMOCRACY? YOU NEED TO ELEVATE THE ARGUMENT TO WIN IT. YOU NEED TO START BY REFRAINING FROM ABUSIVE LANGUAGE TOWARDS THOSE THAT DISAGREE WITH YOU. I ALSO THINK YOUR MOVEMENT SHOULD PROMOTE GAY MARRIAGE AS CIVIL UNION (SEE THE UK). GAY COUPLES' RIGHTS AND RESPONSIBILITIES ARE EXACTLY THE SAME, THEY HAVE WEDDINGS, GET MARRIED, HAVE HUSBANDS/WIVES. THE ONLY DIFFERENCE IS THE WORDING ON THE CERTIFICATE - SURELY ITS THE PERFECT COMPROMISE - CONSIDERING ITS NOT REALLY ONE AT ALL.



  59. 59

    What's her stance on gay marriage?



  60. 60

    Ugh, Perez reminds me of why I cannot stand gay men. You are more catty than the bitchiest girl. Seriously. You want to be a girl so damn bad, it kills you. So you take it out on girls your most jealous of. Your sad, pathetic, UGLY and Fat. Your relevant only because people want to read the stupid shit you write on your blog. Thats it. Your pretty much the most hated MAN on the internet. Your voice makes nails on a chalk board sound like birds singing. You make your kind look bad. Thats all you've managed to do with this Miss CA thing. She has more class in her pinky than you do in your whole fat body. I cannot even put into words how much I have come to dislike you. If I ever ran into you, I would Punch you in the face and run. "I might get arrested but it would be worth it" in your words.



  61. 61

    Her smile is broader and softer.
    She doesn't look as phony.
    Cheek bones prettier and not as harsh of a brow.
    .
    Honestly though, I detest the whole pageant.
    .



  62. 62

    This girl answered honestly but instead you had rather her lie about her true feelings just so you won't have your feelings hurt. You didn't ask any other contestant that question so it really isn't fair that she lost, what if Miss North carolino had answered the same way?… Obviously we all know the answer..you would be bashing her on this website like no tomorrow. You only think she deserved to win because she didn't have to answer your question.



  63. 63

    You know, I no longer care about any of the bullshit from this competition. I love how everyone is so focused on a blatantly sexist competition. Yes looking great in a swim suit makes you a great citizen. But then again they chose to compete in such a charade. Honestly Perez, give it up. Can't you see this is doing you more harm than good at the moment? You're letting your ego get the better of you, and it's a little hypocritical since you harp on about Kanye's so much.



  64. 64

    they all look the same ?



  65. 65

    miss california [or califorina, as her family spells it] is doing what she knows best — staying in the spotlight as long as possible! miss california could say 'no comment' or request to not receive any more interviews. the media will keep this going as long as possible, because it's now a hot topic. but miss north carolina was meant to win. i dont feel that miss california should be saying 'oh i was going to win, everyone was saying that i was going to win until perez hilton asked that question'. that's not fair to the winner. miss california should suck it up and realize that she messed up on the question, but also that she hadn't won the swimsuit nor the evening gown competitions. miss usa is a true beauty, and i feel that she is handling it well. you can't help it if there is a jealous biiitch out there, trying to steal the spotlight. congratulations to the new miss usa!



  66. 66

    She's very pretty.



  67. 67

    shes being overlooked because youre causing a damn seen youre such an undeserved diva



  68. 68

    I heard she's against gay marriage…..



  69. 69

    And what if miss california said "OH YES I BELIEVE IN GAY MARRIAGE!" would she be miss usa now? i think perez is taking this too far. too emotional about it.



  70. 70

    absolute child. get the fuck over it. not everyone in america beleives in the same thing ,are you serious? has political correctness driven some people like you, you dumbass, to publicly bash a girl for giving an honest (and majorital) view on gay marriage? very unfair and stupid i hope you have to deal with this backlash for a long, long time. go miss CA, all the way. ill take honesty over what perez hilton wants to hear any god damn day.



  71. 71

    Hey you little nelly Perez, how was Miss California insensitive? Because she stated what she believes! Your the insensitive moron. Anyone who disagrees with you is insensitive. What a LOSER you really are. Who would marry your ugly fat ass anyway? For real!



  72. 72

    Hey Mario you made yourself look like an ASS on national television. Pretty much everyone sides with miss california, not because of what she said, but because she's classy and honest and you're an insensitive douchebag.



  73. 73

    Congratulations to her!



  74. 74

    Wow! You really hold a grudge. If you don't want peoples opinions, then don't ask for them. I may not agree with Miss Cali, but she spoke honestly. You have to learn to take other peoples opinions without getting bent out of shape. Look at all the celebs that you have opinions about…if you call a "sketched cock" in someones mouth an opinion. Learn to give and take!



  75. 75

    Re: Lilygirl27 – Yes thank you! Agreed!! Perez drop this shit! "With all the controversy surrounding Miss California's insensitive remarks, something very important is being overlooked." Yes Controversy YOU CREATED and CONTINUE TO CREATE!! You are an assclown, let this shit go! How do you know she doesn't feel the same way? Huh? You don't so don't around kissing her ass now!



  76. 76

    im thrilled she won! she is so beautiful and totally deserved to win, fuck miss cali!! she is an ignorant hoe



  77. 77

    She's gorgeous. That's what a rolemodel should be all about, smart, inspiring, hard working, independent….



  78. 78

    The best lady won. :-)



  79. 79

    that gown is beautiful!
    is she really Chad Michael Murrays sister in law???



  80. 80


  81. 81

    slow news day huh?



  82. 82

    It's interesting how this passage came about so late… possibly as justification for all the crap that Perez has been getting? Sounds more like excuses for him squishing the girl that really should have won. Almost like an apology?…



  83. 83

    Not that Perez, or who ever is writing this site actually reads these comments… BUT, 1st of all I agree that gay peeps should be able to get married, however not everyone has to agree with that, so stop damning Miss. Cali for her opinion, which she has the freedom to express. She should be ridiculed for her bumbling, sloppy answer instead. 2nd of all, Miss. Cali & this Miss. NC chick look EXACTLY the same so who gives a shit?!



  84. 84

    POP EATER bloggers are totally tearing PEREZ a new one over there!! Perez didn't like Miss CA.s answer and spoke out.. NOW the people are speaking out as well!! Hope you can get yourself OUT of this one PEREZ. You might be losing people on your fan base!!



  85. 85

    YOU ARE RIGHT …… YOU HELPED HER GET THERE……

    MY MISS AMERICA FOR THIS YEAR IS MISS CALIFORNIA! REGARDLESS OF WHO WON.
    MISS CALIFORNIA SPOKE FOR THE MAJORITY OF THIS COUNTRY…. I APPLAUD HER HONESTY. SUPER TIRED OF YOU SIDE TELLING ALL OF US WHAT TO THINK…. AND HOW IT SHOULD BE SAID. I THINK FOR MY SELF AT ALL TIMES…..
    MISS CALIFORNIA IS THE CLEAR WINNER IN MY EYES….. SO LET THE LEFT NAME CALLING BEGIN!!



  86. 86

    I'm curious as to what Miss NC's answer to Perez's question would have been. She may have the exact same view as Miss CA. Also, just because the majority of people believe that its okay to treat homosexuals as less than the rest of us doesn't make it right.



  87. 87

    PEREZ - YOU PREPLANNED TO MAKE THIS PAGEANT ABOUT ***YOU***
    .
    YOU KNEW YOU WERE GOING TO SABOTAGE WHOEVER RECEIVED YOUR QUESTION.
    .
    REGARDLESS OF WHAT ANYONE'S VIEWS ARE… YOU ARE MEAN AND MILITANT IN YOUR BELIEFS.
    .
    IN THE PROCESS, YOU ARE ACTUALLY LOSING SUPPORT FOR YOUR CAUSE.
    .
    YOUR POST-INTERVIEWS (THAT ARE BEING PLAYED AND REPLAYED) WHERE YOU SAY YOU ARE PROUD YOU CALLED HER THE "B-WORD" AND REALLY WANTED TO CALL HER THE "C-WORD"…
    .
    ENDEARING

    Ya know, I've listened to you bitchin about this since it happened, Perez, and I just think this is all bullshit. No, I don't agree with what Miss California said, I do believe in married between gays, straights, whatever, but ya know what? I also believe in freedom of speech. The lady said what she feels, and damnit, just because you don't happen to agree with her opinion, she told you "her" truth. I think you should leave her alone. Frankly, I wish more people would say what they think instead of saying the fucking politically correct thing.

    Perez, I saw you on the Today show this morning… I actually laughed when you said that she turned this issue into a "political" deal… she did not! Since when is it "political" to say what you believe????? "Political" is when YOU DON'T SAY WHAT YOU BELIEVE BUT YOU SAY WHAT YOUR PARTY BELIEVES! Dumb ass…



  89. 89

    LOL The Word LOSER Just Look At Him As 99% Of People Don't Like Him Can You Really Expect More ?He Screwed Himself Big Times LOL



  90. 90

    I don't know who should have won, but your being all pissy about her response is ludicrous. You presumably knew she was a devout Christian, so you had to have a darned good idea of what her answer would be. While I agree with your views about gay marriage, your "outrage" at her response is disingenuous at best.



  91. 91

    Um is everyone pissed because of the question or the answer? here is the thing I'm all for the right for everyone to marry whom ever they want,but I agree with anyone elses right to have an opposing opinion on the matter. So seriously I think a Miss USA candidate should be capable of better answering a question such as this with out offending anyone….politics people its all about the politics in all matters of life. It comes down to she was unprepared to give a statement on the matter. And she should have been prepared to do so. I don't care what her personal feelings are I care about how she verbally dances on that stage.

    There you go… don't you realize all you do is have opinions about different people and alienate others. These are your opinions. Miss California spoke her opinion. She is not Miss Usa… she did not win. SO GIVE IT UP! She spoke her opinions just like you do yours EVERY SINGLE DAY. You are pathetic.

    I should have just said "yeah, what Jimbo said. Right on."



  95. 95

    Wow thank you. About time someone took the other one out of the limelight and put it on the girl that actually WON…sheesh she did deserve the crown.



  96. 96

    Yeah cause majoring in the most popular, throwaway major and a foriegn language means she's TOTES intelligent. I bet you'd be singing a different tune if you'd gotten to ask her your question instead of California



  97. 97

    someone from G-vegas (Greenville) won something? I hadn't heard!



  98. 98

    I'm really happy that she won!



  99. 99

    what are you kidding me? she's from North Carolina - I guarantee she is AGAINST gay marriage, abortion, freedom of speech etc. - you know, all the things those evangelical wackjobs just hate so much.

    You Yanks made a big mistake letting all those hillbilly states back on the union. They would have all bruned each other to death for heresy within months.



  100. 100

    perez by doing childish things like this you have won nobodys respect, and i am sure you have made yourself even more unpopular in the gay community too.
