Just came out that the Miss Dominican Republic who won the contest on April 17, 2012 cannot serve as our representative in the Miss Universe Contest. It seems that she hid that she was married and this is against the rules of the contest. They even have copies of her marriage certificate.
Carlina Duran Baldera, representing La Vega has been de-throned after only one week being Miss República Dominicana. Now the first runner up Dulcita Lieggi Francisco from the National District will take her place in the Miss Universe Contest.
Dulcita is 22 years old, 5 feet 11 inches tall (1.80 m). She is an actress and model.
The announcement was made from Puerto Rico by Magali Febles, director of the franchise of the Miss Dominican Republic. The Miss Universe will return to DR to crown the second runner-up, now the contender for Miss Universe, Dulcita Lieggi Francisco.
They are comparing this event to the time that the representative from Santiago, July Ramírez, showed her breasts in 1992 during the swim suit contest to show her unhappiness with the contest organizers.
Here is a little information about the contest with some pictures that I will need to change as I get more information. http://www.colonialzone-dr.com/miss-dr.html
