Miss America pageants are known for drama and a little scandal but this year (2015) the drama came BEFORE the event with a sponsor, BBronze.
The Trentonian reported Richardson (owner BBronze), a convicted felon, solicited salon owners to participate in spray tanning activities in Atlantic City. Salon owners paid her up to $1000.00 to participate in the event.
The night before the event some of them were told not to bother showing up, with no talks about a refund.
We believe Kelly had every intention of working with these ladies but the situation got out of control and the result chaos. Now Miss America may be looking for a new sponsor….we think BronzedBerry might be just the thing.
