RIP Chelsi Smith
Miss Universe 1995

Yes, she was my dear friend! Always supportive of everything I did...The tributes just keep coming.... Chelsi Smith, Houston-area native who won Miss Universe, dies https://abc13.com/4187700/ via @ABC13Houston as they should! I’m still in shock. Cancer takes so many too young... We will miss you

My friend Chelsi Smith passed away a a few weeks ago. Recently I understand they held a memorial service. I could not attend, but it had taken me until now to come close to finding the right words...

In memory of my friend, Chelsi Smith:
Miss Texas USA
Miss USA
Miss Universe 1995

I will always miss my dear friend Chelsi Smith. She was someone I never thought I’d have the opportunity to meet, although I admired her since watching her crownings on television in 1995.
But once we met we found we had more in common than our mutual love of pageants.
We also enjoyed the Sugarbaker sisters of the sitcom “Designing Women,” in fact Chelsi often privately referred to me as “John (Sugar-baker)!”

Also, Chelsi knew of my love of figure skating, and really took an interest, sending me photos, videos and old movie clips she found, and asked questions ( good questions) so she could learn more about the things she would send!

Chelsi, like her 1995, MUO sisters, Keylee and Shanna, had a wonderful way of taking a genuine interest in others, and helped to make dreams come true for those they met. She exemplified what it truly means to be Miss USA and/or Miss Universe in the best possible way.

Knowing Chelsi was a gift I was never able to payback, but I’ll do my best to pay forward, as she would want! I love you, Chelsi! *****

#MissUSA rule change
Via Will Henderson aka thepageantguy.com
I’m fine with it....

Residency requirements for #MissUSA state contestants have changed. Instead of establishing 6 months of residency, contestants need only 3 months. If you weren’t a fan of state hopping before, you certainly won’t be now ✈️��

Like her Facebook pageant fan page today! https://www.facebook.com/pages/Miss-Teen-West-Coast-American-Beauty/886361848094212?fref=ts '

March 30, 2015:
Wow! What a night THANK YOU SO MUCH Stevi McShane​ Liz Fogg​ and everyone at Crowned One Productions Inc. (Pageants)​ for your friendship, kindness, an amazing seat and most especially for the new award named in my honor
 "The John Baker Spirit Award" in pageantry presented to Jordyn Kogler , Miss Teen California American Beauty 2014! It is overwhelming for me... and Jordyn is an extremely deserving first recipient! Congrats to all the wonderful winners last night! Best of luck at Nationals...especially to my dear friend Alexa Jones​ , our new Miss California U.S. International​ 2015! So happy for you!

#RealityCheck In fact, I believe all people are "REAL PEOPLE!" There has to be better terminology! Anyone?

#RIPJoanRivers #JoanRivers #MissUSA quote from 2010:
 "I just hosted the Miss USA Pageant and, let me tell you, beautiful gets you everywhere. The New York Times had an article maybe six months ago: Babies respond to pretty faces. So stop telling everyone it’s OK not to be pretty! If you can fix it, fix it!" she told Entertainment Weekly in 2010. "If it makes you happier. I love to look in the mirror and say, 'For 77, you look good.' That’s all. I don’t care what anyone says. Not bad for 77." I attended that pageant, didn't meet her wish I had... Refreshing... IMHO, the world can be too politically correct. Life is more beautiful with a sense of humor and what adults choose to do with their bodies, is their business... Here's to Joan... You'll be missed! :)

"Those who  bring together, never come apart!"

(Because the ability to laugh at ourselves is beautiful!:)

Well home again.... And I would just like to say I make mistakes, we all do, I'm just thankful  mine have not been  made in front of one billion people (so far) my heart goes out to Colombia, Phililpines, and , yes, Steve Harvey!
But even as I was almost trampled and could've been injured coming out of the theatre by understandably upset fans at the theatre (Thank you to my family and PH security for their assistance )
I understand that those who were injured and killed by the auto incident outside the Planet Hollywood were the truly tragic victims of that evening on the Las Vegas Strip during this Holiday Season... I truly extend my deepest wishes to them!
To Pia Wurzbach, Congratulations! Philippines you've waited a long time! To Miss Colombia! I can't imagine what you've gone through.... But you will be the most famous runner up in Miss Universe history. I hope to come to wear that with the pride you've earned. To Miss USA Olivia Jordan and the other competitors Congrats on a job well done!
To my friends at Miss Universe thank you for  all your support and otherwise wonderful week.
Happy Holidays,

FYI, the so-called #MissUSA residency controversy, the requirements for US Senate require even less: http://uspolitics.about.com/b/2008/11/03/about-residency-requirements-for-congress.htm It saddens me that US media (& many in society) are focused on "scandal," "gossip'' and so-called "controversy" rather than achievement... Soon, good people will not want to achieve anymore as they will only get "hated" for it! #HaterFreeZone
