Another Scandal For Trump's Miss Universe

The Miss Universe Organization has been rocked by another scandal less than a year after a former Miss USA checked into rehab to tackle her problems with alcohol. It has emerged that Christina Silva was wrongly crowned the queen of last weekend's (25Nov07) Miss California USA Pageant thanks to an accounting error. Raquel Beezley was actually named Miss California USA 2008, but sources claim the judges actually chose the 2nd runner-up, Silva, as the winner by mistake. Beezley and Silva have been made aware of the error, as was pageant owner Donald Trump, according to U.S. TV news show Extra. Beezley has since relinquished her crown. A spokesman for the Miss Universe Organization says, "This matter is being handled... Christina Silva, who was crowned Miss California USA 2008 relinquished her crown to the real winner, Raquel Beezley, after it was discovered that an accounting error resulted in her incorrectly winning the prestigious title." Property tycoon-turned-reality TV star Trump was forced to step in and solve last year's pageant scandal, when the inappropriate behaviour of reigning Miss USA Tara Conner prompted critics to demand she be relieved of her duties. Trump offered Conner a chance to redeem herself by checking into rehab, which the sobbing beauty queen agreed to do during a much-publicised press conference last December (06).
