Filed under: Sad SadTeensDance

The teen that was stabbed to death over a denied prom proposal is being honored by her friends... they've made her prom queen!

Maren Sanchez, a 16-year-old high schooler, was stabbed to death by a fellow classmate after she turned down his invitation to prom.

She died of wounds to her neck and torso only a few hours before she would've been going to the dance at Jonathan Law High School. The prom was postponed after her death, but that didn't stop her friends from getting all dressed up in their prom best, in her honor.

They went to a nearby beach, let go of balloons and

Filed under: Media MinuteInspirationTeens

Can somebody pass the tissues please?

Teenager Sydney Corcoran was one of the many victims whose lives were turned upside down at the Boston Marathon bombings last month, and after severely injuring her foot, she was worried she was going to miss out on her high school prom!

But with a little help from her mother, Celeste Corcoran, she was able to blend right in with her Lowell High School classmates and looked absolutely stunning as she posed with her boyfriend for pre-prom photos!

And the good news doesn't stop there! Not only did Sydney make it to her big night, but she was eventually crowned prom queen!!

Ch-ch-check out the heartwarming clip (above)!

At the end of the day, she says she was just happy to be back with her friends! But we're sure being crowned queen was a little extra icing on the cake!

Now that she's conquered prom, Sydney says she has even bigger plans for the future! So what's next on her list? Walking in her high school graduation!

Good luck, girl!

Blacklisted Glee Extra Does Damage Control!

Filed under: TV NewsWacky, Tacky & TrueTwitterGlee

blacklisted-glee-extra-sorry-for-spoiling-prom-episode

Last week, we dropped a pretty HUGE Glee spoiler regarding the identity of this year's McKinley High Prom King and Queen, which was apparently leaked by an extra on the set named Nicole Crowther, and caused the series' co-creator, Brad Falchuk, to flip out via Twitter and essentially tell her that she would never work in this town again!

Well now, the squealer has come forward to not only claim that she hasn't been on the set of the show since October and she heard the info from a friend at a dinner party, but that she is also looking into legal options because she thinks that she's been blacklisted in the industry!

She explains:

"I didn't even know if the girl I heard it from was joking or telling the truth. I was not an extra for that scene and haven't been an extra on the show since Oct. 2010. I didn't violate any code of ethics or violate a contract. I have been on the set of many shows and have never, and would never, give away any information…And I am truly sorry for any trouble I have caused. But that was never what I intended. I wanted to be just another speculator weighing in. Mr. Falchuk publicly humiliated me and has made it clear that he never wants me to work again in Hollywood."

Sounds like she really had no idea what kind of controversy was coming her way with those Tweets!

Which makes sense to us! It is, ultimately, only a TV show - a TV show with a whole 'lotta crazy ass fans who take it deathly seriously!

However, we wouldn't want to see anyone's potential career taking such a tumble over something this silly, so hopefully this whole mess will blow over and the Gleeks of the world will let the spoilage of a fictional, on-screen Prom King and Queen go!

What do U think?? Should the extra still be held accountable?

Vintage Betsey Johnson!

Wow.

Teen Vogue got their hands on a picture of Betsey Johnson on her prom night in 1958 and it's amazing.

She told the mag:

"I was queen of my senior prom. I probably only won because I was on the prom committee. I wore hoops and petticoats to make sure my princess gown stuck straight out—it had to be big, big, beyond bouffant big!"

Some things never change. Well, except for maybe her hair.

Gay Teen Fights With School For Prom Queen Title!

Filed under: Gay Gay GayInspirationSad Sad

Such a brave young man! And he sounds pretty FIERCE, too!

Omar Bonilla of Flanagan High School in Pembroke Pines, Florida, has made headlines for battling it out with his school administration because he not only wanted to attend his Prom in drag, but also run for Queen!

Bonilla, who only recently came out of the closet, apparently managed to be one of the top three potentials most voted for, but the school administration asked him to attend the event in a tuxedo.

Bonilla met with his school principal on two separate ocassions to plead his case, but during the second meeting, was slapped with a two day suspension for parking in a vistors spot on campus, which meant he would not be able to attend his own prom!

WTF?? Sounds to us just like they were just trying to get him out of the way so they wouldn't have to deal with him! Disgusting!

Bonilla says:

"They were looking for an excuse for me not to go, so they said I got suspended for a 'minor disturbance.' I wanted to just make a stand and prove a point. Everybody is your friend, and you don't have to care what people say. Be fierce about it. Show that you work it."

He was soon after invited to attend the Pridelines Youth Services gay prom as a special guest this past Saturday - and won the title of Prom Queen there!

We're heartbroken to discover, however, that after finally getting his crown, the poor kid was disowned by his family!

How awful! We can't imagine what kind of parent would be able to turn away their own child after being so courageously honest with the world like that!

Shameful!

Keep your head held high, Omar! You should be very proud of the stand you've taken! We certainly are!
