Despite allegations from a disgruntled pageant contestant, Donald Trump does not waste his time rigging beauty pageants! Trump had filed a lawsuit against former Miss Pennsylvania Sheena Monnin, claiming she tainted the reputation his Miss Universe Org. when she went on a media blitz and accused the pageant of being rigged!

Monnin claims one of her fellow contestants had seen a list which contained the top 5 contestants before they were officially announced earlier this year. Apparently this is a pretty big deal, and Donald wasn’t going to sit around and let this young lady run her mouth.

The case went to arbitration and now, the retired U.S. District Court Magistrate Judge who oversaw the case ruled that Monnin did defame the Miss Universe Org. and awarded M.U.O. $5 million in damages.

Trump also released a statement saying:

We cannot allow a disgruntled contestant to make false and reckless statements which are damaging to the many people who have devoted their hearts and souls to the Miss Universe, Miss USA and Miss Teen USA pageant systems.

While I feel very badly for Sheena, she did the wrong thing. She was really nasty, and we had no choice. It is an expensive lesson for her!
