She may not have brought home the Miss Universe crown, but Glastonbury resident and Miss USA, Erin Brady did the state and the nation proud at the pageant in Moscow Saturday.
While the crown went to Miss Venezuela, Gabriela Isler, Brady was no slouch making it to the final 10 in the international competition.
And what now for the insurance accountant-turned-beauty queen?
“I go back to New York and happily serve my term as Miss USA,” she said. “This has all been an experience of a life time.”
We may not make it often to that pageant runway but when Connecticut does, it is always does it in a big way.
South Glastonbury resident Erin Brady, better known these days as Miss USA, is in Moscow where she is competing in the 62nd Miss Universe pageant this week.
But despite a hectic schedule and a pageant to win, she still made some time for her home state by spilling about the excitement and anticipation with Java here.
She left as Miss Connecticut and returned as Miss USA!
Erin Brady is in New York City where she will live for one year after winning the pageant in Las Vegas Sunday. The South Glastonbury resident will be in Connecticut in a few weeks, but is in the middle of a post-pageant media blitz and setting up housekeeping in her new, temporary Big Apple home. And then of course there is that little matter of getting ready to move on to the Miss Universe pageant in Moscow later this year!
As the first Connecticut woman to ever win the national pageant , she has been bombarded with interview requests since her win.
But she didn’t forget her home state or the Hartford Courant, making time to Spill the Beans with Java. Take a look!
