Beauty pageant contestants are known for saying dumb things, but in former Miss Pennsylvania Sheena Monnin's case her verbal gaffe is going to cost her big bucks.
A judge has ordered Sheena to pay Donald Trump’s company $5 million for accusing the Miss Universe Organization, which also runs Miss USA, of rigging competitions. On her Facebook page, the 27-year-old wrote, "When I stated my opinion that the Miss USA pageant was rigged. I was not aware of the clause in the Miss USA contract which says that the Miss Universe Organization, Donald Trump and others have the legal right to choose the top five and the winner."
Sheena said she was "shocked" by the ruling. She plans to fight it.
