Carlina Duran, Miss Dominican Republic, Stripped of Crown Due to Secret Marriage

by at . Comments

Carlina Duran, a 25-year-old stunner who was recently crowned Miss Dominican Republic 2012, has been forced to relinquish her crown she held so dearly.

The reason is simple: She's married and didn't disclose it.

Duran was given the boot as Miss DR after pageant officials say she violated a rule which requires all contestants to be single at the time of the event. Seriously.

Duran, who owns a spa in Santo Domingo and comes from the town of La Vega, violated the rule that no contestant can have been married or have had a child.

According to reports, Carlina has been married since 2009 and never told anyone about it. She has still not commented on being outed as a better half.

Dominican newspaper Diario Libre reports that a marriage license shows she wed on June 6, 2009. Why should that matter? Your guess is as good as ours.

The crown now goes to the 1st runner-up, Dulcita Lieggi. Take a look at a news report (in Spanish) about the downfall of Carlina and comment below:
