I was in one beauty pageant.
As a favor to a friend…who wasn’t really a friend. In fact I sort of hated her, and by sort of I mean really. And really it wasn’t so much of a favor as it was blackmail. I wore my emerald green Jessica McClintock gown and put vaseline on my teeth and walked gracefully while imagining her head exploding in a variety of creative and Jackson Pollock-esque ways. But now I’m Famous On The Internet and she has premature sun damage so I win.
ANYhoodle, with the recent chatter about Chloe Marshall the first plus-size entrant in the Miss England pageant I thought I’d ask…
Francesca and Plumcake want to know: What do you think of beauty pageants? Have you ever been in one? Would you –all other things being equal– vote for the big girl just to prove a point?
