#shoutouts to MY pageant-bff, Eve Bailey...Your new Miss Plus America Elite 2010 I knew this young woman was something special the moment we sat together at pageant bootcamp six months ago.We clicked....Pageantry is such a hard place to make friends,because your competing against the next woman,but it was not the case.I could never think of a more humble,beautiful,articulate,fun woman that should be wearing this crown.
