sheena monnin marybel gonzalez erika powell miss usa Ex Miss Pennsylvania Sheena Monnin calls out Miss Colorado and Miss South Carolina as undeserving finalistsMore news from the on-going saga of the ex-Miss Pennsylvania USA Sheena Monnin (above, left) claiming the 2012 Miss USA pageant was rigged. TMZ has obtained text messages that Monnin reportedly sent to a pageant official complaining about the Top 16 finalists.

“This is f-ing rigged Randy. Seriously? Colorado? South Carolina? I’m done. This is ridiculous. It’s obviously rigged so the girls they want can shine; they kept several beautiful girls out for that reason,” Monnin allegedly writes.

She doesn’t exactly call Miss Colorado USA Marybel Gonzalez (above, middle) and Miss South Carolina USA Erika Powell (above, right) ugly, but she does seem to be implying that they aren’t the most beautiful contestants.

Sources within the Miss USA organization believe these texts demonstrate that Monnin’s beef with the pageant is emotionally-motivated and not based in fact. The organization has also filed a defamation lawsuit against Monnin for what she has been claiming in the news and pageant owner Donald Trump has called her actions “disgraceful.”
