Miss Colombia Ariadna Gutierrez has finally broken her silence after a long hiatus from the media. The wrongly crowned Miss Universe 2015 blamed host Steve Harvey and the organisers for humiliating her and her country on live television.

In an exclusive interview with Colombian radio station W Radio, the beauty queen, who almost won the Miss Universe 2015 crown, said she “had to grieve for what happened” and thus disconnected herself from the world for some time.

On Dec 20, 2015, Miss Universe host Harvey committed a massive error by wrongly crowning Gutierrez as the 2015 Miss Universe, only to take it back a few minutes later. He later declared that Miss Universe 2015 was, in fact, Miss Philippines Pia Wurtzbach.

Talking about that night, Gutierrez revealed she was under an impression that when Harvey began making the announcement about his error, he was joking. “It has been very hard for me, truly, it has been a great shock,” Gutierrez said.

“Because it is a dream I fought for… I have always dreamed of this, of being Miss Universe... It was very humiliating for me.” She went on to share that it was embarrassing for her to stand on stage while the crown was being removed.

“There are a thousand ways to do things,” she said. “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."

She went on to say, “It was very humiliating for me, but also for the whole country and for all the people not only from Columbia but the other Latinos that were in the auditorium."

There has been speculation in the media that Vivid Entertainment offered her millions of dollors to appear in a porn movie. However, the Colombian beauty debunked these rumours, saying that her "parents would kill her" if they come to know about it.

However, the Colombian beauty is taking things in a positive way now after the sad incident. “I managed to make history which I think is more important than winning the Miss Universe title,” she added.
