Originally it was just required to wear sweats and be comfy. As the years have passed, the rule still stands to be comfy, but we've had a couple different "uniforms". One year it was an embroidered t-shirt, the next year we made our own ghetto fabulous shirts, and this year, the uniform was the Forever Lazy. Not a good look if you are concerned about your figure in pictures because those things make anyone look about 500 lbs!!
|2 of the past winners...me and Kim|
|The other 2 past winners...Kelly & Kaye|
|The contestants laid out for our draft|
|The junk food feast, which is calorie free for the night!!|
|Or Sparkling Grape Juice for those who are pregnant...|
|Taking home the crown!!|
(Aimee your welcome for leaving yours out...I don't want payback for your face!)
There's always rules you have to listen to. These rules can change at any time, though it's never helped me win!
|Kaye giving me dirty looks when she's supposed to be listening!|
|Kelly listening very closely to the rules|
After feasting on some junk food and having lots of good smack talk, it's time to get down to business and get our local titles and tiaras!
|Little Miss America|
|Miss Prison Guard Princess|
|Miss Moonshine Mama|
|Miss Can't Fold 'Em Milford|
|Miss Morning Sickness Mama working that Forever Lazy!|
|Miss Iphone Addict, not facing the camera!|
Then it's time for press photos of all the contestants together...
|Da Candi Shoppe, Lil' Mama, Pookie D, Glammie Grammie, and The Shiz|
|The Shiz got first round draft pick this year...didn't help her much though!|
|The draft is complete and these are my girls that can win me the crown!!|
|This is still when I was positive I was winning!|
Finally, the show starts and the competition is on! At this point there is all kinds of smack talk going on and making fun of each others girls. They immediately cut the girls down to 15 and we start our top 15 board...
|So I only have 3 chances to take the darn crown...that's better than Candi's one!|
|Lil' Mama won the Top 15 prize! Woot! Woot!|
|Top 10 Board, we're all still in!|
|These 2 ladies are my only hope!|
When the current Miss America takes her final walk, our current Miss Ghetto America does the same. She uses this time to thank the little people, make threats, whatever works. Glammie Grammy took her title very seriously and decided to write a farewell speech. If I didn't know any better I would swear that I saw tears!
And now...the big moment has arrived...
4th Runner Up and the Cool Whip Loser crown goes to...Lil' Mama
|Rocking the loser crown|
|It's getting intense!|
|Damn it!!!!!! Glammie Grammie beat me!|
|Being crowned Miss Ghetto America 2012|
Hanging out in the loser's lounge...
This pretty much sums up the whole night...good food, great memories, and LOTS of laughter!!
I love this night! And Kaye, I hope you enjoy that crown while it lasts because it's coming back home with me next year!!!
