Ariadna Gutiérrez had to hand over her crown to Miss Philippines after Steve Harvey
mistakenly called out her name in front of a live TV audience.
Miss Colombia Ariadna Gutierrez told Colombia's W Radio on Wednesday...
"I was disconnected. I haven't received phone calls from almost anyone. Very few people have communicated with me," "That's because I had to grieve for what happened."It has been very hard for me, truly, it has been a great shock,Because it is a dream I fought for. ... I have always dreamed of this, of being Miss Universe. ... It was very humiliating for me."
When Harvey took the stage to reveal he'd made a mistake, Gutierrez said she laughed.
"I thought it was a joke,In the rehearsals, he did things like that.
Having to stand before the cameras while the hard-fought crown was removed wasn't fair, she said.
"There are a thousand ways to do things, "They could have done it, I don't know, the next day in a press conference or a press release. ... They did not do things the right way."
But now that she has had some time to mourn, Gutierrez told W Radio she has a positive outlook. Job offers are pouring in, she said, and a number of opportunities to work in the United States have come up.
"I managed to make history," "which I think is more important than winning the Miss Universe title."
