Late Night FDL: Another Trump Fail – Miss Virginia USA 2011 Is Beyond Rude!


Meet Miss Virgina USA who has added something else, aside from “flingydoos” to the things she hates: Seems Nikki Poteet also doesn’t like


according to her roommate Derek Powell. He and his boyfriend Chris were on the receiving end of those epithets on October 29, when darling Nikki –apparently upset that her roommate had friends over, and perhaps herself a bit tipsy– swung her shoes at guests, shoved guests, destroyed a family heirloom, “kneed” a guest, and told people that her male companion would beat their asses, according to an exclusive report on Think Progress. And yes, per Powell in a letter to the Miss Universe organization, used those words as well as:

downgraded people based on their physical appearance and economic status.

Miss VA kept it klassy when she spoke with Think Progress about the story:

The guy that’s in my pageant office is gay and he’s my best friend in the world, I talk to him every day,

then denied that she had damaged the heirloom, saying:

Anyone can take a picture of a broken door.

When Think Progress explained they had her text messages between her and her roommate about the broken furniture, she abruptly ended the call. Yes, as Charles Reagan Wilson, a professor of history and Southern culture at the University of Mississippi told the New York Times, Southern manners are definitely on the decline!

Manners are one of many things that are central to a Southerner’s identity, but they are not primary anymore. Things have eroded.

In his letter to the Miss Universe organization –which faced a homophobic scandal, a nip-slip outrage and sex tape reveal courtesy of stripper-ministering Carrrie Prejean– Derek Powell wrote this about darling Nikki, a Radiological Engineer at Dominion Resources with an MS in Nuclear Engineering:

Her comments have outraged and insulted the gay people of Richmond and the community is upset that someone like her would represent the Commonwealth of Virginia. Many young girls look up to your organization and look at these title holders as role models. This is not the kind of person that you want representing your honorable organization.

Here’s more from Nikki, who thinks evolution is a theory so of course it should be touched on in school, and that Carrie Prejean’s photos were

high fashion.

Or maybe she meant Miss USA 2010 Rima Fakih’s stripping shots. Or the “tasteful photos” of Miss USA contestants from the pageant’s own website featuring fishnets and lingerie. Maybe Trump should just can the pageant pretense and just go straight into the pandering business.

On her part, darling Nikki says that her roommate just wanted

to raise attention

Christian Superstars For Same Sex Marriage

Miley loves Perez

Perez Hilton has been making good use of his Twitter feeds, getting messages of support from celebs regarding his gay marriage question during the Miss USA pageant.

Miley Cyrus who is very active in her church Twittered back:

Jesus loves you AND your partner and wants you to know how much he cares! thats like a daddy not loving his lil boy cuz hes gay and that is WRONG and very sad! like i said everyone deserves to be happy.

A little later the teen super star added:

am a christian and i love you [Perez] – gay or not. BECAUSE you are no different that anyone else! we are all gods children! i am not saying this so would be nice on your site (though that would be nice jk;) but because the LORD has spoken ‘love cuz god loves’.

Heidi Montag, one of the stars of The Hills–who is marrying co-star Spenser Prett on Saturday in Pasadena after eloping  to Mexico five months ago–sent Perez this message:

God says in the bible that we should love our neighbor and he created us all as equals. I know in my heart that gays and lesbians should have the same government rights that Spencer and I will when we get married. So, yes, this blonde Christian believes in gay marriage and I hope to one day go to YOUR wedding, Perez!!!

And fellow blonde Brintey Spears, who was raised Christian, Twitted Perez:

Love is love! People should be able to do whatever makes them happy! -Britney
