How Miss Universe contestants dwarfed me” by contestant host, Andy Cohen
The host of the 2011 Miss Universe pageant has joked that he was picked on by two contestants backstage in Sao Paulo.
Bravo TV executive Andy Cohen said Miss Montenegro, Nikolina Loncar, and Miss Sri Lanka, Stephanie Siriwardana, heckled him for being short during the pageant last week.
Cohen said the jibes were all the more frustrating because Miss Montenagro went on to be crowned Miss Congeniality.
Appearing on US talk how Live, Cohen said Miss Montenegro kicked off the teasing by approaching him and asking: “Why are you so short?”
“I felt a little emasculated,” said Cohen, after explaining he was 170cm tall.
He said Miss Sri Lanka was quick to join in teasing, calling him “short man”.
“She [Miss Sri Lanka] turns out, may or may not be Miss Montenegro’s henchwoman,” Cohen said.
