MISS USA MISHAP
The newly crowned Miss USA is the latest beauty queen to draw a blank while in front of the microphone.
Nia Sanchez represented Nevada during last week’s pageant.
But during a recent interview, she couldn’t name the capital of the state.
Before this interview, there had been some critics who claimed Sanchez did not live in Nevada for the required six months before the pageant.
Sanchez says she’s lived there for 18 months. Before that, she lived in California, where she competed in the Miss California competition for three straight years.
ROB FORD MUSICAL
Believe it or not, Toronto Mayor Rob Ford is getting his own musical.
It’s a comedy, and it’s coming to a Toronto stage in September.
Casting for the show started Monday and at least 40 Rob Ford wannabes showed up to audition for the role.
Actors from all over the country showed up for the open casting call, including one woman.
The show titled, “Rob Ford The Musical: The Birth of a Ford Nation,” is based on facts, according to the writer, including Ford’s battle with substance abuse.
9-YEAR-OLD BASKETBALL PHENOM
A 9-year-old girl is making a big name for herself on the basketball court.
She is already being recruited to play college ball and she’s only in the fourth grade.
Jaden Newman already plays on her high school’s varsity basketball team, where she averaged nearly 15 points and 7.5 assists per game.
This month, she received a formal recruiting letter from University of Miami.
Jaden lives in Orlando, but has previously said she wants to play in Connecticut.
