As we mentioned in our earlier post about Kumari Fulbright, the former beauty queen and current law student indicted on charges of kidnapping her ex-boyfriend, we poked her today on Facebook. She has not yet returned our poke. But, surprisingly enough, she did add us as a friend.
(We also asked her, via Facebook message, if she had any comment on her case. But we haven’t heard back from her, even though she has been online for most of the day.)
Update: Exciting news! Kumari Fulbright has poked us back. See here.
Now, although we’ve been added as a friend, we’re not in very exclusive company. Since her story broke, Ms. Fulbright has been rapidly acquiring friends — over 50 in the last 24 hours. Can you imagine if (1) social networking sites existed at the time of the Monica Lewinsky scandal, and (2) that curvaceous beauty was on MySpace or Facebook? She would have picked up “friends” faster than her blue Gap dress picked up presidential DNA.
Anyway, as a Facebook friend of Kamari Fulbright, we have access to her profile. We offer some observations and advice, after the jump.
First, here’s confirmation that we’re talking about the same Kumari Fulbright — the 2L at the University of Arizona and former beauty queen (Miss Pima County and Miss Desert Sun, and a contestant in Miss Arizona).
Granted, “Kumari Fulbright” is a distinctive name. But in case you harbor any doubt, her page lists her various pageant titles.
Second, given the nature of the allegations against her — to wit, that she kidnapped and tortured her ex-boyfriend — we’d suggest that Kumari remove the “Superpoke” application, currently a prominent part of her profile.
Of course, it could be worse. Kumari hasn’t used Superpoke to “kidnap,” “bite,” “threaten to kill,” or “hold a butcher knife up to” any other Facebook user. But still, it doesn’t look good.
Let’s see, what else is on her Facebook page…
Activities: “My only job is looking cute!”
Favorite Quotes: “Whoever said money can’t buy happiness didn’t have enough money.” — Kumari Fulbright
“Find a guy who calls you beautiful instead of hot, who calls you back when you hang up on him, who will lie under the stars and listen to your hearbeat [sic], or will stay awake just to watch you sleep… wait for the boy who kisses your forehead, who wants to show you off to the world when you are in sweats, who holds your hand in front of his friends, who thinks you’re just as pretty without makeup on, one who is constantly reminding you of how much he cares and how lucky he is to have you. Find the guy that when he’s with his friends, points to you and says…that’s her.” — One Wise Woman
And if he doesn’t treat you right — bind him up with duct tape, and slice and dice him with a butcher knife.
We leave the last word on Kumari Fulbright to a poster on her Facebook wall, who writes: “nott to shabby…. keep dominating.”
Keep dominating, indeed.
