A lot of folks gets many opportunities in different forms. We all make mistakes and we all have to grow up at some points in our lives. I do not disagree that she has made many and some have even reached high levels of notice, simply because of her position. She is young and at a point where every move she makes is being seen not to mention being judged by the public - people like yourself..(by the way, none of us are in the position to judge the actions of others - let God or a Court of Law do that). Role model or not she has realize it is time to grow up and that is all it boils down too. She like many others have the potential to do and make what they want of themselves, with the right mentor, I am sure she can turn herself around.

eh, i guess i don't really care either about her being on oprah. i dont watch frickin oprah anyhow. despite that, i guess it's good for her. i went to high school with her and knew her family as well, her mom and brother are awesome people. in high school she didn't strike me as very pleasant at all. but neither was i. when your that age and you have family issues (which she did have) its completely normal to act out because of that. she's human, big deal.

i will say that because she's in the lime light, many people from russell county talk about her as a huge embarrassment. and her actions as miss usa may have damaged the reputation of russell county to outsiders a bit but let's face it, anyone from russell county knows that there's a whole lot more worse stuff that happens there than anything she did...

*cough* like corruption in the court house...*cough*

so if you have negative stuff to say, get off your high horse. the people who are saying the negative stuff i would bet are just jealous of her fame.

i guess i almost forgot, people in russell county have to always have something to gossip about. sad to say that after 3 or 4 years that people are still bitter over this. some things never change
