Here's an update:

Once again, I'm not defending Tosh. I think what he did is indefensible. But for denials of her being a publicity hound, do you ever read or watch television? Dr. Phil, The O'Reilly Factor, Good Morning America and countless newspaper articles detailing what an a$$hole Tosh is? Plus she hired an attorney who calls the press every time he breathes (he's known as NC's Johnny Cochran according to my friends in Chapel Hill and Fayetteville). In fact the very job she has with the Lumbee tribe deals with publicity. If she truly wants to get on with her life, she could have handled it like Vanessa Williams did. Stop playing the victim; get over it (which I think was Dr. Phil's advice), then she can truly get on with her life and probably even prosper. Look where Vanessa Williams is today. In 20 years, people outside of NC won't even remember who Rebekah Revels is.
These two have been acting like a couple of high school students, which is fine if they're 18. But their in their mid 20s. It's time for both of them to grow up.

Speaking of money... just remember there are two sides to every coin. Two sides to the story.

Lightbulb we all have free will---we must deal w/consequences of what we choose, good or bad

first off, i've talked w/rebekah on several occasions and she comes across as a really nice, genuine person......it's an unfortunate situation to be in and i think she's handled it pretty well

but, i tend to agree w/badmutha-of course, tosh's actions are indefensible......but i agree that there seems to be holes in her story-(posing, cohabitation)-rules are set for reasons (whether you agree w/them or not),but the point in all of my rambling is... when you choose (you do have a choice) to be part of an organization (ex: law firms, pageants, tribal council, religious orgs.) and represent them, you choose to obey those guidelines (no matter how frivolous they seem to be or how stupid pageants really are:)) --she chose that route & to be associated w/them means to abide by certain stipulations-everyone knows other pageant girls do things in bad taste--it's no secret-but, that's irrevelant--that's like saying, "but everyone else does it, it's unfair, why should i be punished?!!" --the point is she got caught breaking their rules-maybe this will serve as a lesson to other girls who knowingly choose this route that sh*t does come out --so keep it on the DL, don't do it, or better yet.......don't be involved w/organizations like this who expect you to uphold a certain lifestyle---it's their prerogative as to whether they feel she upholds those values they're trying to put out there as an image--(i personally don't agree w/the beauty queen image or w/the way the organization went about dismissing her, but i think they were warranted in their actions)---it's a brand people, and they're going to do what they deem necessary to protect it & keep their regulations intact--if that means disqualifying someone who violated her contract, then that's what it means--
