Miss Wisconsin Dropped Out of the Miss USA Pageant Because…
Shaletta Porterfield, a beautiful black woman with a gorgeous smile, is the reigning Miss Wisconsin. She was set to represent her state in next month’s Miss USA pageant, but has resigned now that she’s been charged with (and has admitted to) three counts of identity stealing someone’s identity for financial gain.
Babygirl was working for a marketing company and felt pressure to make her commissions, so she forged the signatures of company heads on ad contracts. Porterfield’s “scheme” was discovered when the marketing company asked the unsuspecting companies to proof the ads that they never agreed to buy in the first place. Doh!
