Donald Trump, who owns the pageant and just signed a three-year deal with NBC to keep televising it, is said to be looking to replace O’Dell. The only problem is, she has a contract. O’Dell, who is due to give birth in June, will be showing by March 23, when the pageant is to be held in L.A.’s Kodak Theater.
But what that article didn’t say was that the whole reason for O’Dell’s ousting was based on Donald Trump’s distaste for the aesthetic of a pregnant woman. It would seem that in light of The Donald’s dismissive behavior, he might want to either offer up a rebuttal or an apology now that it has been made clear by NBC that she is, in fact, still going to be hosting the pageant. Um, probably because it’s ILLEGAL to discriminate against a woman for being pregnant.
Yeah, maybe it would be better to have a host who was boozing it up and doing lines of coke off the judges table, rather than one who is (GASP!) pregnant.
