Chelsi Smith, Houston-area native who won Miss Universe, dies https://abc13.com/4187700/ via @ABC13Houston as they should!
I’m still in shock. Cancer takes so many too young...
We will miss you
My friend Chelsi Smith passed away a a few weeks ago. Recently I understand they held a memorial service. I could not attend,
but it had taken me until now to come close to finding the right words...
In memory of my friend, Chelsi Smith:
Miss Texas USA
Miss Universe 1995
I will always miss my dear friend Chelsi Smith. She was someone I never thought I’d have the opportunity to meet, although
I admired her since watching her crownings on television in 1995.
But once we met we found we had more in common than our mutual love of pageants.
We also enjoyed the Sugarbaker sisters of the sitcom “Designing Women,” in fact Chelsi often privately referred
to me as “John (Sugar-baker)!”
Also, Chelsi knew of my love of figure skating, and really took an interest, sending me photos, videos and old movie clips
she found, and asked questions ( good questions) so she could learn more about the things she would send!
Chelsi, like her 1995, MUO sisters, Keylee and Shanna, had a wonderful way of taking a genuine interest in others, and helped
to make dreams come true for those they met. She exemplified what it truly means to be Miss USA and/or Miss Universe in the
best possible way.
Knowing Chelsi was a gift I was never able to payback, but I’ll do my best to pay forward, as she would want! I love

‪Wow! I don’t get #GretcheCarlson leadership style...maybe Miss America 3.0 or back to 1.0 but 2.0 is
NOT the #MissAmerica I love and I LOVE #MissAmerica! ❤️❤️��
How can an Organization who chooses to deny freedom represent America?‬
So Sorry for Cara Mund!

#RealityCheck In fact, I believe all people are "REAL PEOPLE!" There has to be better terminology! Anyone?
#RIPJoanRivers #JoanRivers #MissUSA quote from 2010: "I just hosted the Miss USA Pageant and, let me tell you,
beautiful gets you everywhere. The New York Times had an article maybe six months ago: Babies respond to pretty faces. So
stop telling everyone it’s OK not to be pretty! If you can fix it, fix it!" she told Entertainment Weekly in 2010. "If
it makes you happier. I love to look in the mirror and say, 'For 77, you look good.' That’s all. I don’t care
what anyone says. Not bad for 77." I attended that pageant, didn't meet her wish I had... Refreshing... IMHO, the world can
be too politically correct. Life is more beautiful with a sense of humor and what adults choose to do with their bodies, is
their business... Here's to Joan... You'll be missed! :)
