Miss America Loses Production Company After CEO's Sick Emails Leaked
Sexually-charged emails from Miss America Organization CEO were just leaked, and now, the hit show has lost its longtime TV producer, RadarOnline.com has learned.
According to The Huffington Post, the pageant organization’s head honcho, Sam Haskell, ridiculed past winners and poked fun at their sex lives in crude emails he sent to a show staffer. The messages Haskell sent to the employed writer often included vulgar and confidential information about the beauty queens.
Learning this, Dick Clark Productions decided to cut all ties with the organization, telling The Associated Press that it found the emails “appalling.”
"We were appalled by their unacceptable content and insisted, in the strongest possible terms, that the Miss America Organization board of directors conduct a comprehensive investigation and take appropriate action to address the situation," the company said in a statement. "Shortly thereafter, we resigned our board positions and notified MAO that we were terminating our relationship with them,” they told AP in a statement this Thursday.
Apart from speculating about contestants’ sexual activities, Haskell also ridiculed former Miss America winner Mallory Hagan, when she posted a photo of herself in a bathing suit and allegedly looked to have gained some weight.
The Miss America Organization apologized on Haskell’s behalf, claiming the longtime CEO, who earns $500,000 a year from the show, demonstrated his remorse to the board.
“The emails contain inappropriate language that is unbecoming at best and is not, in any way, indicative of the character and integrity of MAO or its representatives. Please note that MAO does not condone the use of inappropriate language and apologizes for this situation. The Board of Directors took the allegations very seriously, investigated them, and considers the matter closed,” said the company in a statement this Thursday.
Sam Haskell will reportedly speak out this Friday in regards to his troubling emails.
