Linda Woods, a spokeswoman for the Brexar County pageant board, revealed the list of offenses against Miss San Antonio, including the fact that “[s]he was doing a photo shoot and asked to wear her wardrobe from the competition, but it did not fit her. I told her we need to get you on an exercise program. We need to get ready to compete for Miss Texas, just like any elite athlete.” Woods told a radio program that she told her “Get off the tacos, get off the chips and the soda.”
Ramirez was able to secure a restraining order against the pageant in which she notes that she is 5’8, weighs 129 pounds. At size 2, she insists that she is not porky. She alleges that she has been slandered and want to “clear my name.”
Obviously, the defamation angle does not have much promise but there remains the question of the contractual basis for the loss of the crown. However, these contracts are written by pageant lawyers and tend to be quite one-sided. California previously saw a lawsuit over the loss of a state crown. Then there was Carrie Prejean. She lost.
This is not just a reflection of the American litigation system. In China, a woman sued after being barred due to her prior use of plastic surgery. She lost.
