Miss America is getting a makeover!

Former Miss America and now chair of the Board of Trustees of the Miss America Organization, Gretchen Carlson, announced on Good Morning America on Tuesday that there will no longer be a swimsuit or evening gown competition and contestants will no longer be judged on their physical appearance.

The former Fox News anchor explained:

"We are no longer a pageant, we are a competition."

In place of the swimsuit segment, contestants will take part in a live interactive session with the judges demonstrating their passion, intelligence, and overall understanding of the job of Miss America. Instead of the traditional gown portion of the competition, contestants are encouraged to wear attire that makes them feel confident, expresses their personal style, and shows how they hope to advance the role of Miss America.

Former Miss Americas Blast Organization's Request In Search For New Leadership & Call For All Board Members To Resign In New Petition!

Filed under: TwitterPageantryControversyGirl Power

no title

Former Miss Americas are NOT about to clean up the organization's mess — not after board members protected executives who exchanged emails so crude, you'd think they were on an Access Hollywood bus with Donald Trump.

In fact, former winner Mallory Hagan said the board of directors' request to help them find new leaders is so insulting, she's laughing at it!

As we reported, former CEO Sam Haskell resigned from the organization after leaked emails showed that he and other now-resigned execs routinely mocked the bodies and sex lives of former pageant winners. Not to mention, laughed when a writer called them c***s.

In attempt to make up for the trash talk, the board of directors said it wants former Miss Americas and state directors to help in the search for new leadership, asking each on Wednesday to nominate four people to serve on a search committee that will also include multiple board members.

To the board's dismay, however, Hagan did not take the offer as an honor, but as "an insult to every Miss America and volunteer's intelligence." She crowned the request as nothing but a shrewd attempt by the "complicit" board members to save their jobs, telling The Associated Press on Thursday:

Less than a day after the shocking reveal of leaked emails between the leadership of the Miss America pageant, 49 former Miss Americas are demanding resignations.

In case you hadn't heard, HuffPost revealed company messages between CEO Sam Haskell and others, which contained numerous examples of fat-shaming, slut-shaming, name-calling, and, frankly, scheming behind the backs of the Formers.

Gretchen Carlson is on a mission to raise awareness about sexual harassment in the workplace — whether it's through her book or at home talking with her kids.

As part of the press tour for BE FIERCE: Stop Harassment and Take Your Power Back, the former Fox News host sat down with Nancy Armstrong to discuss her experiences with sexual misconduct and even revealed how she informed her children about Donald Trump's pussy grabbing scandal.

Former Fox News Web Host Files Gender Discrimination Lawsuit Against The Network!

Filed under: TV NewsLegal MattersPolitikSad Sad

no title

Another day, another discrimination lawsuit filed against Fox News.

Diana Falzone, former host of programming on FoxNews.com, filed a lawsuit on Monday in New York State Supreme Court alleging gender and disability discrimination.

In the suit, she claimed she was banned from participating in on-air activities at the network three days after writing an article about her battle with endometriosis, a gynecological condition she said led to her infertility.

Falzone says the company had approved the article before it was published; but three days after it ran in January of 2017, a supervisor told her he had been instructed by senior executives to ban her from ever appearing on FoxNews.com.

Not only that, but Falzone was virtually banned from all on air network activities. She would never be allowed to host her own shows, conduct her own interviews, appear on Fox TV, or even do voiceovers.

Falzone is being represented by attorney Nancy Erika Smith, who handled former anchor Gretchen Carlson's explosive sexual harassment suit against former news head Roger Ailes. The lawyer said in a statement:

Steve Bannon Once Told Fallen Fox News CEO Roger Ailes That Megyn Kelly Was 'The Devil'!

Filed under: TV NewsPolitikDonald TrumpSad SadControversyMegyn Kelly

no title

Steve Bannon may be a soulless, conniving white supremacist… but there are apparently even more sinister serpents slithering about the Republican media!

Namely Megyn Kelly, who, according to Donald Trump's key advisor, is "the devil" for turning against former Fox News CEO (and serial harasser) Roger Ailes.

Before he was the White House Chief Strategist, Bannon was the executive editor of Breitbart — which was pinned against Fox News in a clash of conservative media outlets during Trump's campaign.

A Politico article examined the fracture in the conservative media — and, ultimately, the Republican party — caused by Trump's rise in politics.

Critics would argue that the conservative media blowup was part of Trump's puppet master's (Bannon? Vladimir Putin?) plan to make way for the populist candidate, but Bannon would tell you it's all Megyn Kelly's fault!

Bannon said it was Kelly's relentless hounding of Trump during election season that made the conservative outlets come to blows, explaining:

New Sexual Harassment Lawsuit Claims Fox News 'Retaliated' Against Anchor For Refusing To Drag Gretchen Carlson!

Filed under: Icky Icky PooTV NewsLegal Matters

no title

Fox News faces yet another sexual harassment lawsuit.

Contributor Julie Roginsky's suit, published by Politico, alleges the network, former CEO Roger Ailes, and current co-president Bill Shine "unlawfully harassed, discriminated against, and retaliated against Roginsky and sabotaged her career."

The longtime political consultant became a panelist at Fox News in 2004. When Roginsky began to appear regularly on The Five in 2015, she claims Ailes started meeting with her privately and "would frequently steer the conversation to Roginsky's personal life."

In one conversation, Ailes allegedly implied he would give her a permanent slot on The Five in exchange for sexual favors. Roginsky refused and did not meet with the network head following that meeting.

The anchor is represented by attorney Nancy Erica Smith, who also represented Gretchen Carlson in her lawsuit against the network — which caused Ailes to step down in disgrace from his position.

According to the new suit, Roginsky's refusal to defend Ailes amid last year's explosive accusations led Shine to retaliate against her. The document states:
