HELP: What should I ask the contestants?

Judge Angie… really?

Don’t worry… I won’t be mediating anything in a courtroom. Instead, I get to help pick who wears the next crown for Washington!

I never competed in pageants but I have to admit I love watching them. Miss America  is especially one of my faves– you’ve got to have a talent to compete in that one. Plus a lot of my girlfriends have competed in the internationally famous competition to include TV gal pals Natasha Curry, Leanza Cornett and Tara Wheeler.

Of course “the interview” is vital. What question would you want me to ask the future Miss DC?

Below, it’s obvious I’m not fit for a crown

Miss California Kristy Cavinder was 1st runner up. I was a huge fan of our friend Jen from DC of course but also took a liking to Miss Hawaii who had a down to Earth, tomboy like attitude. Miss Arkansas was great too and really embodied that old glam Miss America look. Miss Puerto Rico was just flat out striking. Read more from The Examiner 

We’ll work on getting Caressa in for a studio interview at Channel 9.

 Maybe she’ll let me try on that crown… but we know how that turned out last time I had a chance. See below.
