Bitches Candidates of MU 2008



Miss Universe 2008, Dayana Mendoza hugged her runner-up Miss Colombia Talia Vargas right after the pageant in Vietnam.

WARNING: What you will be reading is just relayed to me by a Vietnamese who was in Vietnam during the pageant. Most of these are second hand informations she heard from the people who followed the Miss Universe activities in less than a month.

Some informations were also gathered and collected from different blogs and accounts from the people behind the pageant.

These are may be true or not. These are maybe urban legend or just hearsays. Take in mind that I can't verify these matters. I just would like these "news" in my blog. You can refute it anytime you want. You are free.

We have heard stories of candidates to any international pageants acting bitchy to other contestants or the press. This is no longer an unusual knowledge for most of us who are beauty fanatics. I guess you also have your own stories to tell, stories you have read from the web. But this time I will tell you something about the just-concluded pageant in Vietnam.

I am giving you some of the "BITCHES" candidates of Miss Universe 2008.

Who could forget the incidents involving Miss Egypt Yara Naoum? The incident was popularised by the blog of Ines Ligron, the national director of Japan. Ligron blogged out that Miss Egypt slapped the then Miss Universe Riyo Mori on backstage while they were rehearsing for the pageant. Not only that, Miss Canada was allegedly fed up with Yara's inconsideration of smoking heavily in the room without minding the presence of the Canadian beauty.

Next to Egypt is India's Simran Kaur Mundi. She often acted prima donna and believed much in herself. She was acting like she was the winner while the pageant was not yet over. The report in an Indian newspaper that she won the National Costume was rumoured to be came from Simran. When she was not called as a finalist, she belittled the pageant and was allegedly qouted for saying the pageant is no class.

Dominican Republic's Marianne Cruz Gonzales was said to be hard headed. During rehearsals, she was seen - as per the talks are concerned - acting stubbornly and ignoring the some of the officials' and choreographers' instructions.

Another suprise is Norway's Mariann Birkedal. She was very vocal about her tantrums. She was said to have lost her patience about the long hours of activities. All she wanted that time was to go home and leave the pageant at once.

Another candidates who were said to be bitches were Korea's Sun Lee, Thailand's Gavindra Pothijak and Philippine's Jennifer Barrientos.

It is very hard to believe these gossips especially Misses Norway, the Philippines, Korea and Dominican Republic. But they say " there's no smoke if there's no fire". Whatever it is, these may be true or just a work of a wild imagination.

But these are worth keeping for in a blog about beauty pageants. My Vietnamese friend could not also confirm the authencity of these.
