Miss Who?

I'd not been made aware of the "spectacle" of the Miss Teen Pageant that occurred this past week, until a friend of mine was talking about it at lunch day-before-yesterday. So I decided to do a little research. As someone who's typically up-to-date on all the "goings-on" in the media I was a bit taken aback that I'd not heard of this story of the Miss South Carolina debacle last Friday.

I really, really, really used to love Ann Curry...but lately she's become ridiculous!

What do you think, both of this story...and the "Today Show"?

P.S. In my search for these videos I ran across a parody (already?), which I found quite entertaining:

oh good lord- they need to leave that poor girl alone! Seriously- I bet it's so easy for people to judge what it would be like to be on national television...I can only imagine how freakin' scary it would be!
Send the girl back to high school, buy her a map, and let's move on with it! ;)
