Miss Universe Puerto Rico 2016 Kristielee Caride has been dethroned! A press conference was held later to explain the dethronement.
The official reason of her dismal is that she was rude and arrogant to a journalist during a interview. She wrote a letter apologizing to the journalist but the Miss Puerto Rico Organization headed by Desiree Lowry (Miss Puerto Rico 1995) have made up their mind that Kristhielee Caride will no longer hold the sash or represent Puerto Rico at the Miss Universe pageant.
Inside sources told that she has a history of being a diva with the organization and this public interview was the key factor for her to get dethroned.
Caride's first runner-up Brenda Azaria Jimenez from the town of Aguadilla will now represent Puerto Rico at Miss Universe 2016.

“Beauty queens are not exempt from having a bad day and yesterday afternoon fell to me, perhaps between personal situations that you may have as a human being and “mortal” I let my feelings antepusieran before me work as Miss Universe Puerto Rico.I want to express my sincere apologies to the journalist Patricia Vargas of El Nuevo Dia, the organization of Miss Universe Puerto Rico and my director Desiree Lowry, all the fans and supporters who give me the strength every day to follow the “universal way “.

Thanks to the Miss Universe Organization Puerto Rico who do not hesitate to give me all the tools I need and support every step I’m taking.
