SAN ANTONIO (AP) - A pageant organizer who stripped a Texas beauty queen of her title said photos of the 17-year-old in a bikini were unusable despite attempts to airbrush them.
Linda Woods testified Thursday that Domonique Ramirez is "not fat by any stretch of the imagination."
But Woods said the teenager was named 2011 Miss San Antonio because of her strength in the bikini portion of the competition and said she was no longer in that shape.
Woods is president of the Miss Bexar County organization.
Ramirez is suing to reclaim her crown and compete in the Miss Texas pageant, a run-up to the Miss America contest.
Woods also told jurors Ramirez refused help from vocal coaches and didn't write thank-you notes.
She said the "irresponsible" behavior led to Ramirez's ouster.
