Subject: Lawsuit Update- I Don’t Think Robin is Telling Us The Truth

Yesterday Robin’s side of the story finally came out in the lawsuit. She filed a motion explaining why she should retain control of the organization while the court case moves along. This was in response to Straub asking the judge for immediate control of Miss America while the trial proceeds.

I’ve read every word of every document of this lawsuit, and I must say I find Robin’s story hard to follow. While Glenn’s argument is clean-cut that he established two businesses in December 2022, Robin weaves a story of how she set up America’s Icon LLC in December 2022, will all these discussions about how the LLC became Miss America Pageant LLC, then switched to Miss America Cortporation in January 2023 (even though she signed papers in Dec 2022 as the Manager of the Miss America Competitions LLC. She also tries to explain that she was some sort of licensee for Miss America IP from 2007-2012. Again, not trying to be rude, but I just couldn’t follow her story.

Three things stand out to me at this point.

1. Glenn Straub’s name came up on this very VOY board when the sale was happening. People googled him and the appalling stories at that time. It was known that Robin was purchasing Miss America with this guy with a horrible reputation.

2. Robin added an exhibit to her court filing that is the loan document between her and Palm Beach Polo Club. I’m sorry, but this is so fake. It’s a two page promissory note that is only signed by Robin. If this was an up and up legitimate loan, there would be a lot more pages to the document and it would have both signatures. There wasn’t even a place on the document for Glenn or someone else from his business to sign.

3. Robin’s attorney in 2022 when she was making the purchase was Craig Galle. Now in 2024, Craig Galle is the attorney representing Glenn.

4. Robin admits in her side of the story that she met with Glenn Straub in his office on April 12, 2024. Why in the world would she go to his office and meet him, after he had sent her a possible termination letter in March 2024 and then a second one actually terminating her on April 9, 2024? If someone was doing this to me and I was totally in the right, I sure as hell wouldn’t go meet with them in their office after they did that to me.

There is so much more to this story. It’s become very clear to me that Glenn is way more than just the owner of a company who made a loan to Robin. Loans have a paper trail, even when they are from a private lender.

Robin, you and Shantel chose to do this deal knowing full well that Glenn Straub—the man with the known horrible past— was in the picture. He even attended Miss America this past year. It’s time to come clean on everything instead of making up fake documents to put in your lawsuit paperwork.

I’ve seen contestants barely post or do any platform/volunteer work, win. The few posts on their page are just photo shoots and a few pageant prep. So do judges even care about/ take in consideration community service, platform work and promotion of the organization?

The Ohio MAO has been in trouble for quite some time. We used to be a powerhouse, but have fallen apart in the past 20 years. This year, I feel a real contender has been crowned in Stephanie Finoti. I am hoping she helps put Ohio back on the Miss America map. Elizabetta and MacKenzie have done well in recent years, and I am proud of their representation. I think many of our Miss Ohio could have done much better with better preparation and support from the Miss Ohio MAO. Maybe one day, the MAO will do the right thing and make some changes that will bring excitement back to the Miss Ohio fans.

As for Miss Ohio USA, Melissa has done a wonderful job with the Ohio representatives to Miss USA. She has done it again with Macy Hudson. I believe Macy is another strong contender for Miss USA.

Let's go O-H-I-O!

Can we list out here all the sources where one could access old Miss America pageants, either for free or purchase? I know there's (A) the free videos on the PageantsHeyDay youtube, and (B) Tom's page of Miss Universe Mania for purchase.

Is that all there is? I'm particularly looking to purchase full preliminaries from 2005, 2007 and 2008.

GC is a preliminary pageant for SC/NC. I used to be a local titleholder for them over 8 years ago. I thought maybe that had changed but more and more young women have come forward about their toxicity. How they were verbally abused and body shamed and forced into strict diet monitoring often being told to consume less then 1000 calories a day. Being told that a size 2 or 4 was not good enough for state that they will FAIL unless they are a size zero. Threatening to strip girls titles if they did not take their every word of advice to heart and conform to their idea of an ideal body type. How has this been able to happen for so long and furthermore why did RPM tolerate this behavior and abuse of their contestants? They say that they are resigning due to the toxicity of the USA system but they have perpetuated this behavior over the years by supporting Greg and Eddie in their prelim and crowning THEIR girls year after year (and the thinner the better.). You can’t blame everything on the national organization when the seeds of poison are being spread in your own backyard!

A couple of decades ago, and maybe even before that. Each state pageant this week would have a lengthy thread on this message board. Preliminaries would be hashed over. Predictions for the winners and runners-up were made. I think I knew every contestant in every state just by reading this board. People would offer their opinions, and cite compelling evidence why they think they are right. Others would respectfully disagree, and no name calling occurred if someone disagreed. You mention one contestant's name and suddenly you're regarded as providing hype. You just want more information about her, or others' objective opinions about her. I'm just very disappointed there isn't ongoing discussion and anticipation for tonight's final nights.

Subject: Buckle Up! Latest Lawsuit Update in Laymen’s Terms


Author:

[ Edit | View ]

Date Posted: 11:12:05 06/17/24 Mon
(NoHost/107.115.163.115)

Lots has happened on the Lawsuit front since last Thursday. So here’s the latest update in Layman’s terms:

1. Robin still has not told her side of the story in what is called a “response” to the allegations against her. She had a deadline of today to present her response to the judge, but instead she filed her second motion to extend the deadline to July 2nd. She’s arguing she hadn’t had enough time to get things together since the judge barred her previous attorney from being able to represent her.

2. Robin also asked for an extension to present all of the documents that have been requested. Straub asked that she produce every single email, text message, and document that has to do with the sale. Robin asked the judge on Thursday for an extension of this to July 1.

3. The biggest bombshell is that on Friday Glenn Straub filed an Emergency Motion for a temporary injunction to require Robin to step aside immediately while this case is being litigated. The judge will rule very soon whether Robin has to step aside NOW or whether she can stay as CEO until the final decision of the whole case is made.

OTHER INTERESTING TIDBITS

1. Robin’s only statement about her side of the story can be found in her “cease and desist” letter to Glenn. In it, she says that she basically took out a loan from Glenn’s company in the same way that someone might get a loan from Well’s Fargo. She asserts that Glenn’s company doesn’t own Miss America in the same way that Wells Fargo wouldn’t own Miss America if she had taken a loan out from them. They are just the lender. Problem is that Wells Fargo would give you papers showing your loan. So far there are no papers showing a loan from Glenn to Robin.

2. On a sworn affidavit, Glenn alleges that he and Robin had approximately 40 meetings about Miss America, and that she was to be the face of the company.

3. Glenn claims that Robin was offered to buy 49% of Miss America and his daughter Kelly Straub would own 51%, and it would be a joint venture between the two. He states he even drew up paperwork for this. However, he states that Robin turned this offer down because she didn’t want to be personally liable for the 4.1 million debt. It was then that he just decided to buy the whole thing himself.

4. Strain has produced paperwork showing that as recently as May 13th 2024, Robin tried to change her title with SUNBIZ to “Manager/Sole Member” I with Florida’s Secretary of State.

Buckle Up! It’s gonna be a bumpy ride.

After watching several state pageants in the last couple of weeks, I have a scoring question. What has me thinking of this is specifically Georgia.

Is there a final ballot or some ranking? I ask because in Georgia, they did a "final question" for the top 5, while all of the top 15 had an onstage question earlier in the night. When they went through the scoring explanation it was what we all expected, 10% OSQ, 30% interview or composite, and 20% talent, gown and fitness. No mention of a final question.

I guess I am wondering what the point of the final question is if it isn't included in any way in the scoring, and I thought we did away with final ballot?

Can someone explain?

Curiosity question here. The new Miss Illinois, Breana Bagley said in her speech last night that she competed nine times for the title. Is this a record for someone competing for years AND winning their state title?

Production better than last year, but very long. C+

Emcee good: B

Outgoing Queen is beautiful, but talent is mediocre.

Teen and Miss winners will win talent at the national pageant or at least be in the running. Teen may win the whole thing. If Tinius is to place at Miss America, someone needs to style her correctly. When I saw her tonight, my first thought was, “She looks wrong again.” Surely someone in Kentucky can figure it out.. A very deserving winner, though.

Tinius was the clear winner when all areas considered. The top 5 was probably the right top 5. True was plausible as 1st runner-up. Sullivan can win in the future, but only if she ditches that talent. I do not at all care for the 3rd runner-up, but I cannot out my finger on why - her talent was passable. 4th runner-up is who to watch for next year.

For all of they hype about Yates, the talent was just not strong and the gown was at the bottom of the pack for me. I do not understand why any props were necessary for Sydney Poore - it just added time, was not necessary, and made the talent seem very teen.

I don’t understand board members being on stage. I understand the princess program is a moneymaker, but they were on-stage entirely too much. Three hours is too long. They did have good contestant numbers. Kudos to the state organization for that.

Overall, good job with a teen contender at Miss America. The Miss can make it with styling help.

Is there Top Five Ballot for one night pageants? Young lady named first runner-up after having earned talent and interview preliminary recognition. What's wrong with this picture?
