Here She Comes, Miss'd America
Well, that's actually the second runner up in the photo. (And though her cones look vaguely Madonna-esque, she' s actually doing Gaga--and very well, thank you.)
Below I'll show you which drag queen won the splashy pageant in Atlantic City on Sunday after judges like myself, Mark Segal, Coco Peru, and a Cher impersonator rated the girls on swimsuit, eveningwear, talent, and even talking.
Comic Suzanne Westenhoefer was the sparkling host, Sandy Beach put it all together, and New York gals like Gusty Winds and Dallas DuBois rocked the runway with wit and style.
And the event raised money for AIDS charities. Who needs the real Miss America? (And why did it come back to a major network anyway?)
PS: There's your winner getting crowned: Kitty Hiccups!
