As with any "Miss" pageant, you can’t be beautiful AND be a Mrs. to fight for the crown!
Carlina Duran, a 25-year-old contestant who snagged the title of Miss Dominican Republic 2012, just got her
weave crown snatched off her head!
Why? Turns out, Carlina got her title taken away after her secret marriage was uncovered!
Supposedly, the DR beauty pageant requires ALL contestants to be single ladies — no rings on it allowed here! Not even divorced women can compete, which makes sense seeing as it IS the MISS Dominican Republic pageant, after all!
The beauty queen kept the marriage undercover while taking part in the pageant, having been with her hubby since 2009!
The title of Miss Dominican Republic 2012 has now been given to the pageant’s runner-up, Dulcita Lieggi.
Guess rules are
meant to be broken rules!
