Kitty Hiccups captures 2011 Miss’d America crown

    While you were watching the Golden Globes:

    Kitty Hiccup, also known as 32-year-old David Hyland, was crowned the 2011 Miss’d America on Sunday night at the Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, the AP reports.

    The irreverent — and usually hilarious — drag-queen pageant began in 1993, always the day after the Miss America Pageant.

    The popular fundraiser returned bigger and better last year after a 5-year absence. The Miss’d America pageant takes place on the same runway once used by the “real” beauty queens, who have since moved on to Las Vegas.
