This is very familiar to me,”
She added that Priyanka Chopra was favored on many different occasions.
From her gown being better made to getting food in her own room to getting large pictures in newspapers while the other girls were bunched together on a beach, she claimed PC was favored. She also said that PC got to wear a sarong for the swimsuit competition, while others were not allowed to wear it.
“…She was using some skin tone cream, to even out her skin tone and it was splotchy. I did not say it was a bleaching cream, it was a skin-tone cream. It didn’t work, her skin was blotchy so she did not want to remove her sarong. So during the actual judgment, she is actually in a dress,” she added.
