Today is a sad day in show business: the hand of three tragedies, including this one, come to mind – soul legend Solomon Burke died while racing driver Shane Hmiel in critical condition after crashing her car last night in Terre Haute Action Track in Indianapolis … Our thoughts and prayers are with all those fans, friends and relatives of these artists.
A little over 40 years Leona Gage was crowned Miss USA – A title that would only be valid for one day. After the contest committee found that she was a wife and mother of two children, I immediately stripped of the crown. In addition, reports have emerged suggesting that she lied about his age saying he was actually 21 when he was 18. I could also have been a factor in the decision to revoke his title.
In a biography, Mary Leona Gage, was born in 1939 in Longview, Texas. In 1957, she was crowned Miss USA as the representative of Maryland. The next day the title was stripped because of outrageous procedures.
