Looks like there's some major dramz for the beauty queen from Angola!
It's only two weeks since Leila Lopes was crowned Miss Universe, but the scandal has already begun!
Miss Lopes has been accused of forging papers that qualified her to wear the pageant sashes.
There seems to be some confusion surrounding whether or not she falls under legal documentation, but when asked about the craziness, she gracefully responds:
We have your FIRST LOOK at the next episode of Toddlers & Tiaras, and it's going to cause some controversy!
The woman in this clip says it all!
How could someone let their little beauty queen actually dress up like Julia Roberts from Pretty Woman — you know, the prostitute…
Watch it and see for URself! What do U think?
Beauty really is on the inside!
Bree Boyce, the recently crowned Miss South Carolina, didn't always look like a beauty queen, but after losing 110 pounds she found out she was destined to be one all along!
The 22-year-old was a heavy girl throughout her entire childhood and reached her heaviest at 17-years-old when she weighed 234 pounds.
After receiving advice from the doctor, she decided to try an Atkins-type diet during which she lost 65 pounds and was even able to win her high school's beauty pageant.
Unfortunately, the diet was just that — a diet — and soon after she had gained it all back. With the help of a nutritionist, a little will power, and a lot of exercise she was finally able to lose it FOR GOOD!
Now she's an absolutely stunning young woman (inside and out) and is on her way to compete in the Miss America competition!
Such an inspiration! This beauty queen's story shows that a healthy lifestyle can be the KEY to becoming the person you've always dreamed of being!
Watch the video above to see Bree's incredible results and learn more about how she did it.
Domonique Ramirez, the 17-year-old who won the title of Miss San Antanio, but was cruelly stripped of her crown because she had allegedly gained too much weight is fighting back in court.
The size 2 former beauty queen alleges that after a bikini photo shoot, pageant officials said:
"I needed to lose 13 pounds and I needed to lay off the tacos."
We can't believe that anyone would ever say that to a teenager!
The pageant board's spokeswoman, Linda Woods, took the stand and defended their decision, saying:
"Domonique is not fat, by any stretch of the imagination. She's a beautiful girl, but she wasn't ready for Miss Texas."
Instead, she claims the board gave Ramirez the boot because Domonique was chronically late and refused to send thank you letters.
Hmm, if that was the case, maybe reminding this poor girl of her responsibilities would have been more appropriate then giving her the ax AFTER they told her to lose weight.
Domonique doesn't particularly care for the throne anymore either and is suing on the behalf of the principle of the the matter, saying:
"It's not about the crown. I don't absolutely need this crown to survive. It has nothing to do with that. It's the principle of the fact. The fact that I was wronged and it can happen to anybody."
Good luck in court, Domonique! We hope you get what you deserve!
