But in the case of Betty Thompson, the reigning Miss Oklahoma, someone literally stole the damn thing.
Evidently the jeweled tiara was in the backseat of Thompson’s car while she was moving into a new home in Stillwater. That’s when a thief took off with the crown and two brooches.
Thompson said she was “heartbroken” over the loss, but Miss Oklahoma Pageant officials have said they will replace the purloined items.
Is a disgruntled beauty pageant contestant roaming the countryside, enacting revenge on pretty ladies? In February, Miss Washington Brittney Henry also had her crown lifted from her car — as well as her sashes and gowns.
