"I really try NOT to say bad things about these girls..." -coffee hound Stephanie McLain

CA State staff insisted that Carolee Munger was really a lesbian. The last time she ran the Miss CA USA the singer, an out lesbian, sand a love song that was supposedly dedicated to Carolee. MUO is awars of her sexuality.

I had a series of bizarre and hurtful experiences with Jason Greco. I know that a lot of people loved him, and I will always respect the passion he obviously had for pageants and the girls who participated in them. But he was extremely rude to me, and threatened to tell outright lies about me to make me stop volunteering to help the Future Productions girls with mock interviews. The sad part is that I think we could have been really good friends (we certainly had a lot in common), but it just never happened. I'm over it all now, but at the time some of the things he said and did really hurt my feelings and almost caused me to give up pageants altogether... In fact, I stopped going to state pageants for a few years because I was afraid of running into him...

I am soooo upset. You should see the damn photos I was just sent of our current Miss. It's a Halloween costume, but non-the less, a very insinuating and trashy photo. Hell, there's 3 of them. I am embarrassed. I knew she was kind of trailer trash, but for crying out loud, can't you at least pretend for a year you hold a title that you are a lady? Oh well, the current director deserves it. ha. Now I'm just being a bitch.
re: Misti Vogt Miss MT USA 09: OMG, now I've been sent more, adn it's a friigin bachelor party she was at. I mean pink undies, a black boostier, thigh high nylons. I'm not kidding, I think she was the entertainment. These are on her friends myspace and sent to me. There's more from Sturgis. Good gawd, what's wrong with people? I hope it doesn't get on the USB board, they will crucify her and her condom flinging friend. (NT) -- coffee hound, 00:23:36 11/09/08 Sun
re: Tamiko Nash Miss CA USA 06. In 2006, she arrived, and at most of the rehearsals, she had her coaches, pag. director, someone hemming and fussing with her gown, etc. The other girls were astounded and rather pissed about it all, as they had a minimal amt. of time with their pag. directors during rehearsals, and no one else had someone hemming nad measuring her dress on the side of the stage as it WASNT ALLOWED. It was bizarre. It was like she was told she was going to win, and was adamant about it. I was as confused at rehearsals as a mom, as was my daughter. I asked her, why this girl had an -- coffee hound, 23:51:52 12/02/08 Tue
P.S. Her coaches were there coaching her, while she was on ON THE STAGE. When it was her time to be off, they'd be down on the floor working with her. incredible. (NT) -- coffee hound, 23:56:12 12/02/08 Tue
That's obnoxious that they would allow that. One thing I detest is pageant systems playing favorites. That coach's name you're reffering to is Rita. She is the sister of Nick Verraros of Project Runway (a former contestant) and she herself was on Survivor. She was also a Miss Venezuela 1986 CONTESTANT but introduced herself to me (and everyone she meets) as "former Miss Venezuela..." you would think ....nevermind. (NT) -- B, 22:27:12 12/03/08 Wed
Wow, I thought I was the only one. She introduced herself to everyone (when I met her) as a former Miss Venezuela, then chewed us out for not listening to her. Major 'inflated self-importance/insecurity' issues. Such a shame. (NT) -- bpin, 13:06:32 12/04/08 Thu
re: Tamiko Nash, Miss CA USA 06: I really try NOT to say bad things about these girls, but Tamiko was a SNOT the entire time to my daughter. She wouldn't answer a question that was directed at her, she ignored my daughter when she was with Jackie M. (who was her sister queen, run by Carol at the time). It was embarrassing, as Jill needed to talk to Jackie at times, and Tamiko was with her and would discount and overlook things that were said. My daughter is tough and dismissed it, but it was very obvious Tamiko was told over and over how important she was and that she would win, almost like the crown was promised to her, blah blah blah... Then I saw the documentary, and I realized I was seeing the real her. Unbelievable. Sour grapes?? You bet. (NT) -- coffee hound, 18:38:35 10/29/08 Wed
re: KY USA: Connie Clark Harrison rigs the pageants. when i competed she was the nicest person and i didn't see her doing anything shady. Michelle Banzer competed so many times and every time i would ask her what the scoop was and she said one year she felt there was something going on but then the next she was really nice and then she won. word was that someone in KY, possibly the Correll Family, wrote Tricia Langa and complained, and then they were promptly blackballed, and then BOOM, 2 minorities win back to back. Krista was robbed last year for sure and every one knows it! -- Pageant Mistress, 15:42:06 08/10/08 Sun
re: Miss USA 2007: PA was always "sick" and therefore bothered that she had to show up anyway. She never dressed up and literally rolled out of bed just in time for breakfast every day. I think it was her that was very rude to her mother on the phone every day/night according to her roommate. I didn't interact with Michigan at all. I tried to interact with NC who I heard was cool but I made an effort to sit by her at rehearsals one day. She separated us with a bag, only to remove it when LA walked up. I tried a second time just to make sure it wasn't an accident and it happened a second time. TX and LA were known for giving glares at their "competition" and when you'd catch them, they'd giggle, finger wave, and whisper while staring. (NT) -- Cookie Monster, 18:31:13 10/29/08 Wed
re: Miss USA 2007: TX and LA abused laxatives along with WV, so I was angry about TX and LA making it so far, thereby rewarding their poor choices. (NT) -- Cookie Monster, 10:12:32 10/29/08 Wed
re: Tara Conner: I was in Baltimore for 9 days during the pageant and talked to "everyone" . She was a mess. Drinking, missing practice, her mother had to be called to the ninth floor to talk to her about her behavior after which, she screamed B-I-T-C-H and told the chaperone to F---Off. All of the girls that year were standing around asking WTF just happened when the top five was called. Honestly, everyone thought Louisiana, Florida, California,One of the Carolinas and Alabama would be the last five standing. (NT) -- dixie, 18:56:15 08/10/08 Sun
re: Tori Hall Miss VA USA 2008: Tori Hall was promised Va. She really didn't want to compete, but Grammie wanted her too and she definately didn't want USA. Virginia is becomming too predictable because the director picks her winners and it's obvious. (NT) -- dixie, 18:56:15 08/10/08 Sun
re: Sarah Medley Miss SC USA 05: She shouldn't have won either of those state crowns, and I don't believe she really did. Yes, she took a beautiful photo...but in person, I promise you that nobody was home. NOBODY. Her family was also rude, disrespectful, and flat out hateful to anyone who didn't lay down at her feet. It's rare that I post something so strong, but this titleholder really chapped my rear. And just for the record, as her family so quickly publicized...they didn't leave ALL the pretty girls backstage at USA. USA just didn't have to give her anything to make her go away. (NT) -- Hooked, willing to do whatever it takes to get in here!, 13:53:07 08/10/08 Sun
re: Sarah Medley Miss SC USA 05: A business acquaintance stopped by my office one day, soliciting donations for Sarah Medley, to help her with expences at MUSA. I wasn't following pageants at the time so I didn't know anything about her, but I in the past had always been a fan of the USA system and I wanted to help the girl. I had my company cut her a check for $ 500.00. Now, don't get me wrong. I don't hand out donations expecting anything and I don'texpect thank you notes--though I almost always get them, but in this case, I was very surprized to not get any type of acknowlegement of the gift whatsoever. Not even a pre-printed post card. Nothing. I just thought it was very odd to give a complete stranger a very generous cash donation, especially a "beauty queen" and not receive acknowledgement. I always thought that title holders were supposed to be the epitome of graciousness and class. I just seemed a little odd. I guess it got lost in the mail. -- SC Bandit, 10:28:13 08/11/08 Mon

Oh, and I'm sure the person hyping Leticia Castro is her brother. I remember her brother going on USB before she first competed in Teen to ask people to choose their favourite gown.... I'd bet he's checking the boards and that he's the one putting Georgina down while relentlessly hyping Leticia.
re: Katie Blair: There's a post exchange between me and another over at USB, and I call her an a$$hole. It's about Katie and Tara kissing. WHat's so funny, it's a private jioke between me and my daughter. lol. The responses are pretty funny. FYI, Jill did see some racy pictures, I mean kissing Tara, as well as her crown tattoo on the inside of her lip, Katie didn't show RG because RG's mom was her chaperone. The whole pageant system was very nieve about Katie, especially in Montana. Carol had absolutely no idea until it was too late. (NT) -- coffeehound, 18:56:15 08/10/08 Sun
re: Patricia Gentry: Since this is Oasis I feel like I can mention this here. The woman who posts on USB as "Patricia Gentry" is this lady who runs a pageant training school called "Pageant University" is Mass, I've never really had a drawn out conversation with her, but several of my friends have had very very bad experiences with her, let's just say she's a little too over the top in pageants and its well past obsession. Some of the stories and things I've seen are just, well out there. Anyway, she started designing her own line of gowns and swimsuits and they include Michaela Gagne's gown which was nice but not for a pageant stage, it was way over the top, backless, halter cut down to her navel, and was a really loud print. Well someone on USB just called her out for hyping her gown and "her girls" in this pageant, and she responded. A little part of me had to laugh because she's a bit delusional. (NT) -- NE Gal, 21:07:38 11/23/08 Sun
re: Patricia Gentry: Some of her stuff isn't completely awful. I think its the fact that I know her identity and know how weird she is. You have no idea. There are a lot of coaches out there who know how to prepare girls and can support there girls as well as know some have a really good shot and some just don't but they don't really hype them over the top. She tends to coach contestants and hypes them all and absolutely rips anyone else she views as a threat, and that has been my experience with her, that and just some plain crazy stories I've heard or things I've personally witnessed that just made me go "this lady is not normal". I would never say this anywhere but Oasis, and I always try to be congenial towards her, but she's just a weird lady. (NT) -- NE Gal, 21:34:50 11/23/08 Sun

Susie Castillo. I've made no secret about my distaste for her, and run in with her. I know way to many people who have had isolated similar run-ins with her during her reign, as well as right after she gave up her crown. I've been told she's "changed" now and has become more humble, but unlike the weather, it's my understand that people don't change. In a nutshell, I politely approached her to congratulate her on her reign (during the Miss USA festivities in L.A) and also on her representing our nation at Miss Universe, which I do every Miss USA I meet as I think it is the utmost honor. Without skipping a beat, she rolls her eyes, grinds her teeth and says>>>
Susie: "Thanks. I didn't have any help there. If I didn't get screwed over by the organization and them not helping me, I would have made Top 5( at Universe) and should have. I didn't want to win, that's for sure (I'm thinking- you didn't have a snow balls chance in hell!) but I did think I should have gone further. Whatever. Now I get to focus on my career here where I can be successful."
Awkward moment of silence (how do you respond to that?)
Me: "Well, that's cool. Uhm. How neat Massachusetts had a win with you and Shawnae having been sister titleholder!"
Susie: "Oh, I guess. we didn't know each other that well. The pageants were separate back then so I didn't really know her." (No they weren't asshat!)
Me: "Okay well, good luck giving up your crown."
Susie: Mmmhmmm. (Goes over to talking in Spanish with a circle of friends who could best be described as the most hormonal, limp wristed, nelly pageant dudes around. Baby gap t-shirts 5 sizes too small and all).
At the coronation ball later, my friends and I saw her again but I did not bother having that negativity ruin my flow. She was all kinds of pissed off over something, throwing a fit by the bathroom door, cursing and saying "Can you f*cking believer her? Nasty bitch"
It turned out she was approached by a pageant fan from Massachusetts who was so proud that she was his states double crown winner and wanted a picture. When he walked away, Susie called him a "faggot!" in Spanish and attempted to poke fun at him with her agents saying "They (gay pageant fans) are all the same, all want to do me for Halloween" not thinking anyone would hear. Well, they did. Another young lady (Latina) who was standing near them heard it all and approached Susie to tell her how bigoted, rude and disrespectful that was. Susie was appalled and shocked, she walked away huffing and puffing in a storm ...and well, that's when I saw her by the bathroom throwing a hissy fit. One of my best (and most trusted) pageant friends witnessed the whole thing and confirmed the story. -- B
re: Ashley Coleman: I've never ever met someone who had a pleasent encounter with Ashley Coleman (myself included) and I still can't believe she went as far as 3rd R.U in our state pageant. -- B, 20:31:33 08/10/08 Sun
re: Susie Castillo: Picture it.. USA 04. The Kodak. Susie C making one of her final meet and greet scenes. In her smug self absorbed way she proceeded to insult one of the most adorable pageant boys I've ever met using a very negative slur that some ignorant fools use to refer to gay men. Starts with and F but I'm not even finishing that one.
She thought she got away with it by saying her garbage in spanish to her posse. A friend with me caught it all. She was having none of that and told Susie off. I mean cussed her out. I guess she rattled the poor outgoing queen a little hahaha. -- Lady Chatterly, 22:54:18 08/10/08 Sun

I spoke to Kristi Glakas soon after she won her state title. She was invited to attend the Miss Georgia USA 2004 pageant as a guest. During the coronation pictures, she was asked to get on stage and pose for a pic with Caroline. Kristi being the spunky gal she is didn't skip a beat and said to Caroline "How excited are you?! MISS USA HERE WE COME!" Caroline just looks her up and down from head to toe, glares and goes "Mmmhhmm" True story.
re: Caroline Medley Miss GA USA 04 and Ashley Puleo Miss NC USA 04: Poor Ashley, if she wasn't feeling like the wicked stepsister of her sister queen, she was getting hell from her former home state rep. I personally would have never had Ashley in the top 5 & yes, she might have been the biggest witch in the world, but from what I know...there were plenty of those to go around in that social circle & Miss Medley tops the list! (NT) -- Hooked, 20:15:48 08/12/08 Tue
re: Caroline Medley Miss GA USA 04: After she was crowned we saw her and her family at the Huddle House so we went over and I was saying how excited she must be be and what a great year she would have, and Erin was saying if there's anything she could do to just let her know, blah, blah, and I swear to you, they just sort of stared at us and gave us these pained smiles and said, "yeah, thanks." Needless to say, we never heard from them. Maybe she was still mad cause Erin beat her the year before!! (Just kidding). (NT) -- Queenmum, 15:38:07 08/14/08 Thu
re: Crystle Stewart: As much as I love her, Crystle did the same thing to her roommate Shannon Lersch, Miss Illinois USA 2008. Someone I know very well sat next to Shannon's mom and family at Miss USA. Her mom said Crystle would not look at her or speak to her the entire 2 weeks there. She would look at her and glare and turn away, but would never start or contribute to any attempts she made at a conversation. From what I gathered, it really deppresed Shannon and brought her down but it was Crystle's way of focusing on the competition. Crystle made it clear from Day 1 that she had absolutely no intentions of socializing at all during Miss USA. (NT) -- B, 18:10:04 12/14/08 Sun
re: AL USA director Rhonda Garrett-Gilliam: Its the director. There's just something "off" with her. She's one of the very directors who NEVER return emails, the numbers are always pretty small considering they're southern states, there's very little promotion, we're lucky just to get these pics as usually we're lucky to see anything other than crowning pics -- and I've still never seen crowning pics from MS 06. It just all seems kinda secretive! One other thing... it could easily be someone impersonating her but she's been posting all sorts of negative stuff about other states & titleholders on the boards! A flag went up in my mind because she was saying "alternates" instead of runners-up (she's the ONLY one who uses that terminology) and she signs her posts RGG... duh! (NT) -- x, 20:10:14 11/13/08 Thu
re: Tiffany McCollum contestant at Miss CA USA: When she missed the semifinals, you could hear her screams from my second row seat-stage left! Apparently screaming isn't all she did. Hair spray was literally flying every which way, and a few mirrors were broken too. They literally had to restrain her to calm her nerves down. (NT) -- B, 17:56:24 08/10/08 Sun
re: Tiffany McCollum contestant at Miss CA USA: HA HA -- you should have seen backstage. (Of course that was before she sat out in the audience during the duration of the pageant and pouted next to audience members).
Of course, right before the Top 15 was announced that year, I was backstage and had accidentally ripped the front slit on my dress -- was afraid I would show the judges my "hooha" it was that high, and I was BOBBYPINNING the DURN THING... So I was in the backstage dressing room (you know, the one where they move the Top 15's stuff after you've been called) just because I needed to make sure it was OK before I put my opening number dress on for Finals.
Anyhoo, she was in there and proceeded to tell me how after the Top 15 was called, she fully expected to take "this seat and this mirror" to get ready for the rest of the night. Then she went on to put me down to my face -- just her and I backstage -- no one else around. And they were the first words she spoke to me EVER! When she was done, I said -- Well, hope it all works out for you tonight. Smiled and walked-away. I wasn't mad at all. I just felt sad for her.
Then, after they called 10 to 5 that year, a different blonde was on her cell phone saying VERBATIM, "MOM! They got rid of ALL the blondes! Yah, they just kept the ethnics! This is bullshit!"
I didn't know whether to laugh or go over to her and shake her! Didn't think too much of it, thought, guess we've all said stuff in fits of anger, sadness, frustration, disappointment. So yah, when I see certain Anonymous posts about the "blonde" issue -- I always wonder if that's her.
Oh! And the hairdressers and make-up artists backstage that year are my friends, and they saw and heard it, too. Sometimes to this day we'll be silly in the salon and talk about "those ethnics in the pageants..." ;) -- bpin, 00:22:16 09/23/08 Tue
re: Hooked: She likes to play mind games, she's manipulative and a confidence artist... this woman is scary, most of all because she's so d**n sweet as pie most of the time. I am actually frightened, yes frightened of what she is capable of.-- x, 11:02:56 11/07/08 Fri
re: Hooked: I don't particularly like having to talk about people so negatively on here, but I honestly believe that the more people who are warned about this woman's behaviour the better. As I said, she makes an art of appearing sweet and non threatening which means a lot of people don't necessarily believe at first hand that she is capable of this sort of stuff. Unfortunately, B & I have been on the receiving end of it (and another poster here has been on the receiving end of Fred's issues) and I tell you its not fun, either of them. I just can't believe I got sucked in.-- x, 16:52:44 11/07/08 Fri
re: Hooked: She's a nutcase and there's nothing anyone can do about it... (NT) -- x, 17:16:28 11/07/08 Fri
Its really hard to figure out who is who I think there are two or three people with numerous identities between them all set on causing mayhem. We are pretty sure that Hooked is the same person who used to post as Mrs Budgie, and I am 99% sure that Fred & Meemaw are the same person, but its just really, really hard to figure it all out. And it sounds completely off the wall and loony, I know, because its not when they actually start leeching the joy out of you that you realise just how screwy they are. I know there is at least one person on this board, other than B & I, who can attest to that... (NT) -- x, 18:07:36 11/07/08 Fri
