  • Mrs. World Inc has expressed disappointment at  reigning Mrs. World Caroline Jurie’s behaviour

By JAMILA HUSAIN  

The Mrs. World International pageant will go ahead in Sri  Lanka as scheduled in December and the recent incident where the  reigning Mrs. World, Caroline Jurie uncrowned Mrs. Sri Lanka, attracting  international attention will not have any impact, National Director for  Mrs. Sri Lanka for Mrs. World, Chandimal Jayasinghe said yesterday.  

After returning the Mrs. Sri Lanka crown back to Pushpika  De Silva, who was uncrowned by Jurie on Sunday night on allegations that  she was a divorcee, Chandimal said this incident would have no effect  on the Mrs. World pageant, and it would go ahead in Sri Lanka as planned.    


“There is no change in plans there by the Mrs World  organisation that is why they have accepted the crown being given back  to Pushpika De Silva. Further, Pushpika is not divorced and till the  conclusion of the Mrs Sri Lanka pageant if the contestant is not  divorced then she deserves to contest. If she is separated, it is  irrelevant,” Chandimal said.  


However, the Mrs. World Inc. on Tuesday told the Daily  Mirror that contestants who are selected to contest for the Mrs. World  international pageant will be accepted only if they are married and the  Daily Mirror learns that Pushpika’s divorce case is expected to be taken  up in June/July, six months ahead of the international pageant in  December.  


However, Mrs. World Inc has expressed disappointment at  reigning Mrs. World Caroline Jurie’s behaviour in uncrowning Pushpika in  such an ad-hoc manner and has asked Jurie to issue an apology which Jurie  is yet to do.  


Jurie arrived at the Cinnamon Gardens Police last morning  to record a statement after a complaint was lodged against her by  Pushpika and Jurie’s brother told reporters that Jurie will address the  media this week and give her version of the details.   


Several attempts to contact Jurie for a comment directly failed.  


Pushpika in the meantime, who was hospitalised the day  before with ‘scalp injuries’ as claimed by her assistant, appeared in  front of the media yesterday and said she will use her crown to promote  single mothers in Sri Lanka and said being separated from her partner  was not a reason to disqualify a contestant.
