Perez Hilton Calls Miss Colombia A 'Diva B*tch,' Slams Steve Harvey After Miss Universe Debacle

Someone is clearly thirsty for the spotlight.

By now, you've probably heard that this year's Miss Universe pageant (yes, those still exist) was more of a clusterf**k than usual. In one of the best TV moments of 2015, the event's host, Steve Harvey, announced the wrong winner, forcing Miss Colombia Ariadna Gutierrez to give up the crown to its rightful owner, Miss Philippines Pia Wurtzbach. 

Now, gossip blogger Perez Hilton, who judged the pageant alongside former Miss Universe Olivia Culpo, footballer Emmitt Smith and "Scream Queens" star Niecy Nash, wants some of that spotlight. 

“As a judge ... I’m looking at everything that happened, I see her [Miss Colombia] posting on Instagram that she’s the true winner,” Hilton explained on Good Morning America. “There’s a reason -- many reasons -- that she didn’t win.”

Gutierrez did indeed share a photo of herself celebrating her victory in the few minutes she believed the crown was actually hers with the words, "FOREVER YOUR MISS UNIVERSE!! COLOMBIA," written in Spanish as the caption. 

POR SIEMPRE TU MISS UNIVERSO!! COLOMBIA !!!!!!! #misscolombia

Hilton, 37, continued his rant against Miss Colombia on the "Perez Hilton Podcast" that same day.

“I don’t know if the people at home could see this, but Miss Colombia was being a straight-up diva bitch,” he said. “[She was] rude to her translator. She was giving the most awful side-eye, throwing major shade … Miss Colombia was not happy with the pace or the way that the translator was translating.”

He also took host Harvey to task for not being as prepared for the gig as he should have been. 

“[Harvey] just didn’t do his job well, period,” Hilton expressed on “Good Morning America." "There is a prompter but the moment where he crowns the winner isn’t on the prompter because that moment, they don’t want the other girls to know, so it was just on his card and he read it incorrectly.”

Sorry Perez. There's only one "diva bitch" in this scenario, and it isn't Miss Colombia.
