Jenna Talackova, the transgender Beauty Queen has hired the infamous Gloria Allred to fight for her right to compete in the Miss Universe pageant.

Talackova, was competing as Miss Universe Canada but was disqualified from the competition for not being a “naturally born female.” However the drama really began yesterday when she was told that she would be allowed to compete if she can meet her country’s “legal gender recognition requirements.” Whatever that means.

Well, this seemed to upset Jenna even more, and she went and hired hot shot attorney Gloria Allred, who held a press conference today saying that “her client never asked Trump to prove he was born a man or show her his “anatomy,” so why should it have made a difference to him how Talackova was born?”

Things are getting nasty, but I don’t think Jenna Talackova, the transgender Miss Universe, will be allowed to reenter to competition. The rules are set and it would be too controversial to change them.

Jenna disagrees. She underwent surgery at the age of 19 and has been living as a woman for several years.

“I am a woman. I was devastated and I felt that excluding me for the reason that they gave was unjust. I have never asked for any special consideration. I only wanted to compete. I saw the statement by Mr. Trump’s representative that was issued yesterday, and I find it quite confusing. I wish Mr. Trump would just say, in plain words, whether or not I will be allowed to compete and, if I win, whether I will be allowed to represent Canada in the Miss Universe competition. I also want Mr. Trump to clearly state that this rule will be eliminated because I do not want any other woman to suffer the discrimination that I have to endure.”
