Congratulations Kristen Dalton, our new Miss USA!
It's funny...we always joke in my family that my brother Aaron has an amazing knack for meeting people with connections. So it comes as no surprise that he actually DATED Kristen in high school. Yes, we're talking about my gay brother! As Dr. Daddy so unabashedly pointed out last night while viewing the swimsuit competition during the pageant..."If anyone ever doubted the authenticity of his gayness...I'm thinking they're pretty sure now. NO HETEROSEXUAL MAN COULD TURN THAT AWAY!". Nice.
The thing about pageants is that I think they're really pretty ridiculous. For Kristen, however, this has been a lifelong dream. Her Mom was Miss North Carolina USA in the 80's and her sister was Miss Teen North Carolina 2008. Her sister Kinzie dates Chad Michael Murray from One Tree Hill. Actually, I think they're engaged.
Most people have this impression of these pageant girls as being totally fake and bitchy. Kristen honestly could not be more different. She's authentic, she's sweet, she wears her heart on her sleeve. She's AMAZINGLY talented. Girl can SING. I'm genuinely happy for her. Go Wilmington! What an amazing opportunity for her.
And I love it that Aaron gets to be the guy who says "I dated her when" and everyone else says "Yeah, right. Whateva dude."
