Miss Colombia has reacted over her Miss Universe "dethroning", claiming she was deliberately "humiliated" to boost ratings.She also felt the crown shouldn't have been removed from her head at the moment ..
Ariadna Gutiérrez had to hand over her crown to Miss Philippines after Steve Harvey mistakenly called out her name in front of a live TV audience.
Miss Colombia Ariadna Gutierrez told Colombia's W Radio on Wednesday...
"I was disconnected. I haven't received phone calls from almost anyone. Very few people have communicated with me," "That's because I had to grieve for what happened."It has been very hard for me, truly, it has been a great shock,Because it is a dream I fought for. ... I have always dreamed of this, of being Miss Universe. ... It was very humiliating for me."
When Harvey took the stage to reveal he'd made a mistake, Gutierrez said she laughed.
"I thought it was a joke,In the rehearsals, he did things like that.
Having to stand before the cameras while the hard-fought crown was removed wasn't fair, she said.
"There are a thousand ways to do things, "They could have done it, I don't know, the next day in a press conference or a press release. ... They did not do things the right way."
But now that she has had some time to mourn, Gutierrez told W Radio she has a positive outlook. Job offers are pouring in, she said, and a number of opportunities to work in the United States have come up.
"I managed to make history," "which I think is more important than winning the Miss Universe title."
