There she is…Miss Heavyset America?
Give her a break, says 2013 pageant winner Mallory Hytes Hagan.
The 24-year-old blonde beauty and former Miss New York is responding to various tabloid reports that she's packed on the pounds since winning the Miss America crown back in January, admitting that it's not always easy keeping her fabulous bikini figure.
"I think that I'm human…and I'd like to equate getting ready for the Miss America pageant, you know, to getting ready for a boxing match," she said during a recent appearance on Anderson Live. "We get into shape and then afterwards life goes back to normal."
