Sorry, Christina Silva: Raquel Beezley Takes Miss California Crown

by at . Comments

Christina Silva enjoyed the title of Miss California for almost as long as Samantha Jade enjoyed her role as Britney Spears replace for a recent music video shoot.

Then, as a result of an "accounting error," Raquel Beezley stepped in and earned the crown.

Beauty pageant director, Keith Lewis, claims that several judges questioned the results after Silva was named the winner and attributed the mix up to "simple human error."

Raquel Beezley is Miss California 2008. Unless more accounting errors take place.

Christina Silva says she never received an explanation from pageant officials.

"They never could explain their accounting error, but told me that if I didn't give up my crown to Miss Barstow [Beezley], my personal integrity could be questioned, and my career could potentially suffer," she said.

In light of the past scandals involving Tara Conner and Katie Rees photos, along with the current issue focusing on Ingrid Marie Rivera, The Hollywood Gossip simply has to ask: What the heck is wrong with beauty pageants?!?

It really makes one think. Might judging women based on their appearances in an evening gown and bathing suit actually be a bad idea? Discuss!

To all hispanics, please don't take it personally. Your girl getting de-crowned is not Ms. Beezely fault. So don't say your your girl is prettier bec. its has nothing to do with that. The error was in the counting of votes. So it was corrected and the REAL WINNER is declared. And the hispanic girl, she's actually the fourth placer. not even second after everything was tabulated. Clear and simple. OK. So stop whining and stop harassing Ms. Beezley. Congratulations to Ms. Raquel Beezley.

First of all Raquel is obviously more beautiful than this hairy hispanic grosera! If she thinks it's all a racism issue then maybe she should go back to the third world country that her family came from! I am so sick of hearing the racism excuse for everything hispanics dont agree with, they scream racism just to try and get sympathy and to get their way, ship them all back to where they came from!
