The Proof Is In The Jello......
Tricks of Pageantry
Q Is it true that many Miss America contestants spray their bodies with hairspray to keep from jiggling and with WD-40 to keep their gowns from sticking to certain areas?--David Evans, Los Angeles, Calif.
A Too true. The TLC special Miss America: Behind the Curtain made these shocking revelations, and this year's winner, Caressa Cameron, 22--a former Miss Virginia and the eighth African-American to take the crown--didn't mind a bit. "I was really excited about the show," she tells us. "It was good for people to know that there are little tricks of the trade that make sure we look our best. WD-40 is absolutely awesome."
My point of writing this is.....why wouldn't a model want to jiggle? Not wanting to have your gown stick to you, is understandable to me. With so much plastic surgery these days, is it all about not having any life left in our skin. No movement. The dead look. Barbie doll comes to mind. Is that the look that some people shoot for?
Then there was this email forward that a friend sent me about Walmart People. I don't like to make fun of people....but.....this is scary. I didn't know someone created a web page just for this...but apparently they have. The email I received just had a few photos with some funny remarks attached to them. I have to admit...or confess...I did crack up over some of them.
The moral to this story is..... I think we should suggest to Walmart that they hire some models to give out free samples to some of the people who need some of these beauty secrets. Maybe the models could learn something. Like worrying about a little jiggle.... is it really that big of a deal????
