'It was very humiliating'

 Miss Colombia, Ariadna Gutierrez has officially forgiven Steve Harvey after his blunder at last month's Miss Universe pageant made it the "worst nightmare" of her life.



Ariadna Gutierrez is no longer holding a grudge against Steve Harvey after the horrible mistake he made exactly a monh ago announcing her as the Miss Universe 2015 winner.

She also said that she's not going to sue him, as some have suggested.

Ariadna Gutierrez joked with Harvey during an appearance on his talk show, "You need to learn how to read cards."

Harvey's blunder resulted in an awkward moment wherein the crwon was taken away from Ariadna Gutierrez and placed on to the rightful winner Pia Wurtzbach.

Ariadna said that she thought Harvey is about to make a joke that night.

"That would have been the worst damn joke I ever wrote in my life," Harvey answered.

Harvey, also clarified that it wasn't a publicity stunt, as some have theorized. He also revealed that he had received death threats over the mistake.

Gutierrez says the experience felt like a "nightmare" and revealed that several lawyers contacted her, suggesting that she sue.

"That's not me, that's not who I am" she said. "

She says she's moved on now.

"This is our destiny," she said.

Miss USA Olivia Jordan and Miss Universe Pia Wurtzbach are roomies



Miss Universe 2015 Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach and Miss USA and  Miss Universe second runner up, Olivia Jordan are going to be roommates,
two of the most confidently beautiful women in the universe. Both women have posted photos of their first few days together on social media and they look like they're having a blast. 

Jordan praised Wurtzbach on her post in the official Miss USA page, saying that the latter has been doing more than great so far as Miss Universe. The beauty queen happily announced that they're going to have the adventure of a lifetime. 

Steve Harvey and Miss Colombia Ariadna Gutierrez will mark their first ever public conversation after Miss Universe 2015 controversy.

The “Family Feud” host admitted that he never had a chance to talk to Miss Colombia even though he reached out to her.

He was able to say his apology to Wurtzbach and to all the people involved in the pagent, however, he has yet to say sorry about his mistake to Ariadna Gutierrez.




“I haven’t been able to reach out and talk to Miss Colombia. Now, have I tried? Yes. But haven’t gotten a response,” Harvey said.

But it seems that this issue will be ending soon, as Us Weekly reported that Gutierrez is set to have an appearance to Harvey’s show and have a heart to heart talk with the comedienne host.

The site reported that people will soon witness “an airing of grievances” now that Gutierrez agreed to have an interview on Harvey’s show.

Entertainment Tonight reported that the interview will take place on “Steve Harvey Show” and it was scheduled on January 18.

If the interview will happen, this will surely catch a lot of attention since this is Harvey and Gutierrez’ first public conversation after the fiasco that happened last December.

“No one knows, and that information is not in the teleprompter because you’ve got two women standing there,” the 58-year-old said. “I read what was on the teleprompter, then I read what was on the card.”

In Gutierrez case, she admitted that it was not humiliating for her but for her country, fellow Colombians and to all the Latinos in the stadium. She also noted that if this was all for the ratings, then they succeeded bringing Miss Universe to the front page.


Miss World 1997 Diana Hayden gives Birth from Frozen Egg


Hayden's daughter born from egg frozen for eight years.

"I froze my eggs for two reasons: I was busy with my career at that time and, more important, I was very clear that I was going to wait to fall in love and marry before having a baby" said Hayden.


When former Miss World Diana Hayden delivered a baby girl in a city hospital on Saturday, a bit of medical marvel was at work. The child was born out of an egg that 42-year-old Hayden had frozen eight years ago. 

"A career woman need not think about her biological clock and get pressurized into getting married earlier than she wants to or have a baby when she isn't ready," said Hayden from her hospital suite in Surya Mother and Child Hospital in Santa Cruz. 

Diana was crowned Miss World 1997 on November 22, 1997 in the Seychelles by outgoing title holder Irene Skliva. Hayden married Collin Dick, in a country club in Las Vegas, USA on September 13 2013.

Chopra, best known in the US for her work on ABC show Quantico, is the third actress to come aboard the project.

This will mark Chopra's debut on cinema screens in a Hollywood movie.

Miss Colombia Ariadna Gutierrez has finally contacted Miss Universe Pia Wurtzbach


"She replied to me, but I haven't seen her yet," Wurtzbach, 26, explained during her visit to Us Weekly's NYC headquarters on Wednesday, January 6. "I'm not exactly sure where she is right now." 



"I heard she was in Miami, but I don't know if she went back to Colombia yet. But if I ever visit Colombia, I hope to see her." She said.


Wurtzbach also thinks that Ariadna might be in the process of understanding what happened and respect her. 

That's a queen!

Miss Universe Pia Wurtzbach is also excited for her homecoming this January. The BPCI has been in preparation for this big event, after 42 years Philippines has finally conquered the Universe.




Steve Harvey Breaks Silence About Miss Universe mistake

"Did I make a mistake? Yes I did, wholeheartedly," he said on Monday. "And at this point in the game, I'm not in the finger-pointing business and rolling people under the bus. So, I did what I was trained to do by my father … You make a mistake and you own up to it. And I tried to fix it, I tried to fix it right there."

Harvey has felt Miss Colombia's pain, and even attempted to make amends. "When I did it, it was horrible for Miss Colombia. And she's the only one I haven't had a chance to talk to," the host revealed. "I've had a chance to talk to Miss Philippines. I've talked to all the pageant people. I've talked to people backstage. Even me and the director had a long talk. But I haven't been able to reach out and talk to Miss Colombia. Now, have I tried? Yes. But haven't gotten a response."


At last, Steve Harvey speaks after The 2015 Miss Universe blunder.

On his first Steve Harvey Morning Show segment of the New Year, the Family Feud host shared with listeners exactly what happened on stage and backstage after he confused the first runner-up with the winner.

"Immediately after it happened, they asked the pageant people to come to the press conference," Harvey recalled. "I wasn't scheduled to be at a press conference, so I went to the press conference and made all the apologies there … Here's the situation: Now, when the mistake was made, when I said the wrong woman's name, I can only give information I had. No one knows, and that information is not in the teleprompter because you've got two women standing there. I read what was on the teleprompter, then I read what was on the card."

As seen on the card, the text for the runner-up was bolder and larger than the font announcing the winner. "The difference being: On the card, it said first runner-up," Harvey explained of the gaffe. "Now, what happened, how it got like that, how it was done, how it was worked on, that's neither here nor there. I said the name that was on the card. When I walked off, everything was cool … and then, after that, all hell broke loose."

Backstage, Harvey said people were running around frantically. "All I heard was people say, 'That's the wrong name,'" he recalled. "And all I hear is confusion backstage. Now I'm standing here in the wing, so what I did was, 'I gotta go fix it.' Now I got a guy in my ear going, 'We gotta do something! We gotta do something!'"

While the situation was incredibly sticky, Harvey's only regret was this: "How this must have made the woman from Colombia. I felt for her more than me." The host said he did his best to rectify the situation.


Ariadna Gutierrez says Miss Universe ruined her dream



"In four minutes they destroy your dreams, they throw it in a bag, and they throw it in the trash," Ariadna Gutierrez said Tuesday on Univision.


On December 20, 2015 the colombian beauty queen was all smiled after the host Steve Harvey announced that she won the crown but minutes after she was left devastated when Harvey clarified that he made a mistake of announcing the winner.

The crown was removed from her head on national television and given to its rightful owner, Miss Philippines Pia Wurtzbach — leaving Gutierrez furious with the way the situation was handled.

"They could have done it another way," she continued in a translation provided by ABC's "Good Morning America." "I feel like it doesn't matter to them the feelings of a girl who has worked her whole life for a dream."

The Colombian stunner remained composed as Harvey announced the correct winner and apologized for misreading the winner card, but the distraught contestant broke down immediately after the show.

"I went up to my parents' room and obviously, I was very sad," she said. "I was in bad shape. I was crying. I cried a ton that night."

Gutierrez, among many others, has suggested she and Wurtzbach share the crown following the "humiliating" incident — but the pageant's eventual winner has no plans of doing so.

"I think it would be a little difficult for two girls to share a crown," Wurtzbach said on "Good Morning America" on Tuesday.

Harvey, meanwhile, has continually expressed his regret since that fateful night, consistently claiming it was an innocent mistake and not some twisted publicity stunt.


Wurtzbach responds to Miss Colombia's suggestion in sharing the Miss Universe crown

"I think it would be a bit difficult for two girls to share a crown, but I have high hopes that this will give great opportunities for me and Miss Colombia and the rest of the contestants." Wurtzbach said.



Pia stopped by Good Morning America to chat about the mixup and when they asked if she’d consider going halvsies, she played the drama off like a pro. 

It’s been three weeks since the embarrassing Miss Universe crowning moment, but everyone still talking about it. Miss Philippines, Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach, actually won the crown on the night of December 20, 2015, and though Miss Colombia Ariadna Gutierrez has suggested the two share the title, she’s not quite on board with that idea.

Miss Colombia suggested to share the Miss Universe crown with Miss Philippines

“I understand how she feels…She’s very talented. I think she’ll do very well,” said Pia. As for the new Miss Universe, she’s got a busy schedule of duties on her calendar, from focusing on HIV awareness to disaster relief and cyber bullying. 

The 2015 Miss Universe pageant will be remembered forever.

Steve Harvey to host The International Costa Maya Festival in Belize


He blew Miss Universe, but Belize considers Steve Harvey to host The International Costa Maya Festival.

The International Costa Maya Festival running Aug. 6 through 9 is the Caribbean country’s biggest fest. A spokesperson told the News that the tourism board believes Harvey would be a great host even after watching Sunday’s trainwreck, which crowned two different Miss Universe winners in two minutes.

Harvey claimed he made an “honest mistake” in misreading the cue card when he named Miss Colombia Ariadna Gutierrez the Miss Universe winner on Sunday night instead of rightful champ Miss Philippines Pia Wurtzbach. The comedian stepped forward moments later and revealed his massive mistake, and Gutierrez was unceremoniously stripped of her crown and sash on live TV.
