Who Will Crown Next Miss N.C.? Not Revels Or Clymer

RALEIGH, N.C. — Neither Rebekah Revels nor Misty Clymer will be on stage crowning a new Miss North Carolina.
Revels lost her crown last year after her former fiance threatened to expose topless pictures of her. Clymer, who was the first runner-up, was later given the crown, but Revels was also reinstated.
After a series of courtroom battles, a judge ruled neither Clymer nor Revels can officially claim the title.
Revels, who has been going for months making appearances as Miss North Carolina and Miss Stars and Stripes World, said she she is not surprised by the news.
"I did not get my hopes up. I did, however, wish I could have crowned [her], but I'm going to chalk it up and roll with the punches and keep on going," she said.
While June will bring a new Miss North Carolina, Revels said July will actually be her month. She will be in the 2004 Native Visions of Lumbee Women calendar.
Clymer, who is back at her full-time job, has also been going to events as Miss North Carolina. She said she is over the whole tiara tussle.
As many wonder who will crown the new Miss North Carolina, a source close to the pageant said Miss North Carolina 1963 Jeanne Swanner-Robertson is being considered to do the honors.
