I got some nice conversation with a friend in ABS Publishing when our talk suddenly get to dethroning people. and there now its confirmed. Bb. Pilipinas winner dethroned.
Yes, Maria Venus Raj go will no longer compete in the Miss Universe.
The reasons were due to birth certificate of Venus, according to Jenny Inocencio Marcial, PR Manager of Bb. Pilipinas.
Accordingly, what they submitted is shes born here in Manila while they say they were born in Qatar. Venus, is a Half Indian Half Pinoy.
The Bb. Pilipinas Charities, Inc. released a statement regarding this matter:
“Today March 29, 2010, Bb. Pilipinas Charities, Inc. decided, with a heavy heart, to let Bb. Pilipinas-Universe 2010 Maria Venus Raj go, after the organization discovered inconsistencies contained in her birth records, in contrast to her personal account of her birth.”
According to the rules of Bb. Pilipinas, when one titleholder gets dethroned the first runner-up will replace her. But the 1st runner-up, Dianne Necio, is only 17 years old. The Miss Universe pageant’s age limit is 18 to 26 years old. In this line that the second runner-up winner, Helen Henson, will then fill the vacated position.
