Geez, I was always led to believe the French were so enlightened about their sexuality and lascivious lifestyles.
What the hell happened? They’re going to strip this lovely young lady (stop it, guys, I know what you’re thinking) of her title for a couple of suggestive photos?
Valerie Begue has been told she should immediately take off her Miss France crown because of suggestive pictures published by a French magazine.
Ms Begue – who became Miss France less than a fortnight ago – refused to resign, saying she had been betrayed.
She had returned on Thursday to an enthusiastic welcome on the Indian Ocean island of Reunion.
Before the competition, contestants guarantee that they have never been photographed in compromising positions.
One of the pictures shows her licking yoghurt provocatively, while another has her floating on a wooden cross in a swimming pool.
The President of the Miss France contest, Genevieve de Fontenay, went on French radio to insist that Valerie Begue would have to stand down.
If she did not, Ms de Fontenay said she would be stripped of her crown.
"She is in Reunion. Well, let her stay there," she said.
She went on to say that if she had been aware of the pictures, Ms Begue "would never have been let into the Miss France competition".
C’mon, we had a Miss USA coking it up and whoring around and they let her keep the title.
Here are the "offending" images that have organizers up in arms. I see much worse on a daily basis.
I had no idea yogurt came in a can.
OK, some may find this mildly offensive, but again, you could go to any art show and find much worse.
