Subject: Mai Shanley. She appeared (obviously) at the 1984 New Mexico State Fair parade on a float fit for a queen. Think green and red chile peppers with the American flag as an overlay on her float. She welcomed everyone to the NM State Fair at the gates and you could not have met anyone more generous, sweeter and likeble, and not because of her National sash. She was downhome, warm, finely energetic, fabulously friendly, and no ego in sight. When asked, via the ABQ Journal, her triumph in being called into the Top 10 at Universe that year with the fist/arm pump was for the "hometown" USA.

[> [> [> Subject: Can we get a vid on that?? Also, I thought she was perfectly fine in the semi-finals and I agreed with her Top 5 placement. But her poor interview skills really shown through in her Top 5 interview, and ultimately I would have placed her 4RU (even though I felt she was better than California & New Mexico in the semi-finals)

[> [> [> Subject: I remember on that E! Special, Kimberly was in her hotel room, eating a birthday cake and watching a delayed TV presentation of the MU preliminaries held earlier that evening. When it was her turn in evening gown she was so disappointed in her look and performance and thought she looked fat. I agreed with her because that gown she was wearing made her look heavy. She also looked shocked that she didn't make top ten. The Queen of Israel documentary follows Miss Israel at that same pageant. Both interesting programs.

[> [> [> [> Subject: We have to remember Kim placed in the lower 40s at Teen 94. She rightfully won Miss USA. I thought Tennessee was perfection but I honestly don't think she would have did any better at Universe. Back to Kim, at Universe, her gown performance was atrocious! There is no gray area. Her feedback about herself was true. Ss was fine. But I also think her interview was poor. I think she placed in the top 25 but we will never know.
