Domonique Ramirez, 17, has filed a novel legal action to keep her crown as Miss San Antonio after pageant officials accused her of excessive consumption of tacos and insubordination.
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.

One more taco for me….Yeah…..Taco al carbon….
UPDATE: Domonique Ramirez, the 17-year-old Miss Antonio who was stripped of her title after being told to “lay off the tacos,” has been given back her crown by a Texas courtroom.
I can imagine Charlie Sheen at Taco Bell ordering two Size 2 to go… and some coke in a cup….
“Her contract required that Ramirez stay at the same weight as the day she won the pageant”
I don’t know ANY woman who can stay at exactly the same weight….it’s a tidal thing…
“At size 2, she insists that she is not porky. ”
Size 2? ….they are COMPLAINING????
I think the younger woman of the Nation should pay very close attention to the outcome of this case,so they know what is important, it is a very clear indication of what they can expect later in life……and who to expect it from.
UPDATE: For now, beauty queen in tacos flap gets crown back – Judge reinstates Miss San Antonio at least through the weekend
Since you seem to know so much about History and you have been to SA….I am waiting for an answer Mr. Michener….Please write me a book about Texas will ya… Oh, I meant Vince….sorry…
Mot everyone who fought at the Alamo was named….or even credited with having fought there….I seem to recall numerous blacks died…ok, maybe 5 or 6…. were they slaves or freemen? The question remains still today….

One word of caution…..never do the riverwalk in San Antonio while in the natural state of Charlie Sheen….I am serious.
