    It's been a pretty dismal fairy tale for the reigning Miss Colorado USA Blair Griffith.

    The 23-year-old and her mother were evicted from their home last November -- a month after winning the pageant -- and have been homeless since, Colorado's 9News reports. They're staying with a family friend after a series of setbacks, including her mother's heart attack and major surgery that caused financial troubles.

    What's more, Griffith, a magna cum laude graduate of the Art Institute of Colorado, will be out of a job next month. She works at Saks Fifth Avenue, and her store is closing. Still, she keeps herself

    Wow! She's not getting paid for being Miss Colorado? This is crazy.

    I am sure the Miss Colorado Pageant has sponsors that would all up in arms if she was naked in some magazine; they should be just as upset that she's homeless. She's still representing them...wth?...Iono....I am confused...

    Gosh, I hope she wins Miss America...

    She got paid for the participating in the pageant...but her mother had a heart attack, couldn't work and did not qualify for disability...so i would assume she had to take on the responsibility of the being the bread winner for a while....

    she is a very smart woman... i think any other person would have panicked and done something stupid like get paid to be in a smutty mag, or one of dem lousy rap vids...she is very poised... and she positioned herself so the whole of America can hear her story...now she has jobs offers from all over the country, and Donald Trump even offered to help....
