Miss Bolivia has agreed to forfeit her crown after learning she had become pregnant; Fox News has learned.

In a statement from Bolivia-based modeling agency Promociones Gloria, Joyce Prado, 22, who won the Miss Bolivia crown last year, is said to have spoken to agency owner Gloria Mariana Limpias about not being able to fulfill her duties as the country’s beauty queen – and a mutual decision was made to vacate her coveted title.

“It is clear that within the contract there are clauses that she must comply with, but for reasons of confidentiality, we cannot publish them. However, the reason she is no longer Miss Bolivia is that she came to talk to us because she was not going to be able to fulfill any of the activities that she had to do as a Miss Bolivia,” read the statement.

“Our company is Pro-life and we cannot make Miss Bolivia fulfill her obligations while pregnant. It is for this reason that it was agreed that she live this stage of her life in a calm manner which can fully devote to her pregnancy. Joyce continues to be a model for the company and we maintain a beautiful relationship. We hope that later she can continue working with us.”

On Friday, the modeling agency shared a statement on Facebook in which they claimed Prado “has been dismissed from its crowns as Miss Santa Cruz and Miss Bolivia for reasons that are strictly related to breach of contract, leaving record that we maintain cordial relations in a scope of mutual understanding, safeguarding the confidentiality clause.”

The agency also shared a magazine headline to Instagram on Sunday that indicated Prado no longer held the Miss Bolivia crown because of her pregnancy, spurring confusion that the beauty queen was forced to give up her crown.

Prado and her fiancé, Paraguayan model Rodrigo Gimenez, confirmed pregnancy rumors on Sunday when they shared the baby news via their respective Instagram accounts along with lengthy captions.

“The miracle of life is indescribable, especially when it comes to the arrival of a new member of the family. Becoming a Father or Mother may be the most important challenge that comes our way in life, but just as it can be difficult, it can also be the most rewarding thing in the world,” Prado wrote.

“I want to share with you that I am the happiest woman in the world because my life is full of love because together with the man of my dreams we are beginning to live the most beautiful stage of our lives: becoming parents.”

The model continued: “Ever since I knew I would become a mother, I cannot stop imagining how I will look with my baby in my arms. I’ve never never imagined feeling such a great emotion just knowing that from within me there is a seed that grows every day and the only thing that I ask God to be born safe and sound that his daddy @rodrigodanielpy and I will take care of protecting him and training him all the love we have to give him.”

According to the Miss Universe rules, “contestants may not be married or pregnant. They must not have ever been married, not had a marriage annulled nor given birth to, or parented a child. The titleholders are also required to remain unmarried throughout their reign.”

A rep for the worldwide beauty pageant did not respond to Fox News’ request for comment.

Lori Loughlin’s ‘options are limited’ after pleading not guilty in college admissions scam, legal experts say

After reportedly rejecting a plea deal for the fraud charges she’s currently facing in the wildly publicized college admissions scandal, Lori Loughlin pleaded not guilty on Monday to the two charges against her — a move many say was her only play.

“She can enter a plea of guilty or not guilty, I mean her options are limited. It’s that simple,” California-based attorney Lara Yeretsian told Fox News on Monday. “Since she doesn’t have a negotiated plea, her only remaining option would have been not guilty. She’s not going to go and say I’m guilty if she doesn’t have a negotiated plea in place that she’s happy with.”

LORI LOUGHLIN APPEARED ‘ARROGANT’ IN COURT WHILE FELICITY HUFFMAN LOOKED ‘MORE GENUINE,’ SAYS SKETCH ARTIST

Former New York State prosecutor Adam Citron echoed the sentiments of Yeretsian that Loughlin’s only move at this juncture was to enter a plea of not guilty, adding that once the “Fuller House” actress turned her nose at the initial offer, it was the prosecution’s duty to bring forth an indictment.

“This was totally expected and normal operating procedure. Once Loughlin rejected the initial pre-indictment plea offer, and the prosecutor went forward and secured a formal indictment, procedure requires a formal arraignment on the indictment,” Citron explained to Fox News on Monday.

“Loughlin’s plea of not guilty was expected and again procedural in nature. It in no way signals that she will not later decide to take a plea deal and plead guilty. This plea of not guilty in no way forecloses her from later accepting a plea offer and pleading guilty. That being said, one must be offered by the prosecution. To that end, this not guilty plea does not foreclose her, through her attorneys, from attempting to negotiate a post-indictment plea arrangement with the prosecution.”

LORI LOUGHLIN REPORTEDLY STRUGGLING TO ACCEPT CHARGES IN COLLEGE ADMISSIONS SCANDAL

Furthermore, Yeretsian believes Loughlin is under pressure to reach a plea agreement now more than ever since she was hit with an additional charge for money laundering last week and is now facing 40 years behind bars.

“It’s all in the hands of the two parties – which is the prosecution and her defense lawyer. Clearly, there’s a lot more pressure on her at this point to cut a plea,” said Yeretsian. “She was in a better place initially with just the one charge of mail fraud that she was looking at, but since nothing happened they must have been at an impasse with the prosecution asking her being stuck in a certain guideline range where she was probably looking at real time in custody, and I’m guessing that was the issue. But now it’s worse because she’s looking at more time, unfortunately for her.

“They could still agree to allow her to plead to the first original count, and some of the points she could get for adjustments, for her role in the offense – being a minor role in the overall conspiracy, and acceptance of responsibility – they could potentially get her where she was originally, which was in the 21 to 27-month range.”

LORI LOUGHLIN’S ‘WHEN CALLS THE HEART’ ANNOUNCES RETURN DATE AFTER HALLMARK EDITED OUT THE EMBATTLED STAR

She continued: “All we’ve heard about her have been good things and I know of at least one, possibly two of her actress colleagues have come out in her support. So clearly, this was just abhorrent behavior on her part,” Yeretsian explained.

The super lawyer noted that Loughlin’s lack of criminal history and community involvement could serve as a factor in determining her punishment at any sentencing and indicated that any decision is essentially at the judge’s discretion.

“As a human being, she comes across as a good person and I’m sure there’s plenty of community work that she’s done – and what she has done, despite how some people have reacted to it – it really was all about her children and she’s not doing anything malicious or trying to hurt somebody. So I think a lot of this will factor in even at sentencing, even if she ends up being in the guideline range, she could end up getting something less than that, even potential electronic monitoring. It’s all really, in the end, up to the judge.”

Loughlin’s fashion designer husband Mossimo Giannulli also has yet to admit any guilt. Meanwhile, the other celebrity mom involved — Felicity Huffmanhas already agreed to plead guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit mail fraud.

“I am in full acceptance of my guilt, and with deep regret and shame over what I have done, I accept full responsibility for my actions and will accept the consequences that stem from those actions,” Huffman’s statement, which was released last week, read.

“I am ashamed of the pain I have caused my daughter, my family, my friends, my colleagues and the educational community. I want to apologize to them and, especially, I want to apologize to the students who work hard every day to get into college, and to their parents who make tremendous sacrifices to support their children and do so honestly.”

‘Bless This Mess’ star Dax Shepard rates himself a ‘California 10’ on the all-American handyman scale

Dax Shepard struggled with coming to terms with the fact his character on the new ABC comedy “Bless This Mess” isn’t an all-American handyman like he is.

Speaking to reporters at the Television Critics’ Association winter press tour at the Langham Huntington, Pasadena in February, the executive producer said he found his character’s lack of DIY acumen difficult to adjust to in the “fish out of water” home renovation comedy, considering he’s very handy in his personal life.

KRISTEN BELL, DAX SHEPARD LAUNCH AFFORDABLE BABY PRODUCT LINE FOR WALMART

“It was a big blow to my ego to not be able to wield the hammer like a pro in this,” said Shepard speaking about the series’ plotline of a married couple who decide to leave their lives in the big city behind for the simple life in rural Nebraska – only to find that the farmhouse they’ve inherited is in dire need of some TLC. “In fact, I said many times I almost don’t know how to make it look bad.”

The “Parenthood” star, emphatically suggests he’s a better handyman than the average person, and even said he’s got the resume to prove it.

“Oh, boy – I’m a California 10, on the handy scale and I’m a Michigan 5. I think your average guy from Michigan can probably change the jets in a carburetor, and I think your average Californian can change a tire on the side of the road,” explained Shepard, 44, who is married to “The Good Place” actress Kristen Bell, 38.

“Nonstop, I put a new wheel stud in my sister’s car about five days ago, and I plugged my wife’s tire the day before that. So, there’s always something at my house that requires [fixing]. But I’m much more automotively inclined, although I do like building stuff.”

When asked what was the last project he completed, the “Ranch” actor paused before answering.

“The last thing I built – I don’t want to lie to you, so I really want to jog my memory, he said. “I built a giant wall in our back yard, a beautiful giant wall. That was one of these projects I had assessed it was going to take me maybe a day and a half, and it took me three weekends. That’s kind of my pattern.”

During the series’ panel session, Shepard revealed to reporters that he renovated the first home he ever purchased in Los Angeles and while the job ultimately was completed, it wasn’t without its fair share of setbacks.

“The first time I bought a house in L.A., I renovated it right before I moved in. And there was a period where they said it would be done, and I had scheduled to move in,” said Shepard. “Of course, it was not done, but I moved in anyways. And I was dead asleep, and I’ll try to edit out the F-bombs, but I wake up hearing, ‘What motherf—–?’  ‘No, F you.’  ‘What?’”

DAX SHEPARD SLAMS CLAIMS THAT HE CHEATED ON KRISTEN BELL WITH JULIE ANDREWS’ STEP-GRANDDAUGHTER

He continued: “Then I hear a scuffle break out, and I walk out in my underwear, and there’s two guys that are laying hardwood floor fully engaged in fisticuffs in the living room. That’s a bad remodeling story – when the workers fight on the property. And I said, ‘You gotta do this on the street. I don’t want to be liable for this.’”

“Bless This Mess,” which is co-created by Lake Bell and Elizabeth Meriwether, also stars Pam Grier, Ed Begley Jr. and JT Neal. The series premieres Tuesday, April 16 at 9:30 p.m. on ABC.

Ashley Bratcher, the actress behind the brilliant portrayal of Abby Johnson, a former Planned Parenthood “employee of the year” turned pro-life activist is once again opening up about the impact the film has had on many viewers since its debut last month.

“The response had been incredibly positive. I mean, through it all – this has been the most rewarding and fulfilling role I’ve ever had in my entire career,” Bratcher told “Fox & Friends” on Monday. “To be able to hear someone come up to you and say, ‘I was so affected by your work that I decided instead of having an abortion, that I’m now going to have my child’ – I don’t know how to really explain the way that feels to know that you could potentially just saved a life. There’s not a lot of actors who get to say that, and I am so honored to be able to have a part of this.”

‘UNPLANNED’ ACTRESS ON TWITTER BACKLASH: ‘I COULDN’T EVEN FOLLOW MY OWN MOVIE’

The “War Room” actress said she’s been inundated with an outpour of support from women who have shared their own personal stories surrounding abortion and relishes in the opportunity to bring mainstream awareness to the subject of abortion.

“Yeah, I think I cry every time I talk to you guys. But, I can’t help it because it’s so incredible. It’s literally so incredible that people are being affected this much – this is why we did this movie,” Bratcher explained. “And not only that, but being able to share my story with you guys – it’s not only the movie, but being able to share my heart and the fact that I care so much and that, we really do want to help women that we’re here to walk alongside of them.”

‘UNPLANNED’ ACTRESS FIRES BACK AT ALYSSA MILANO’S CALL TO BOYCOTT GEORGIA OVER ‘HEARTBEAT’ BILL

Unplanned” initially struggled to find its footing with conventional publicizing as the film not only received an unexpected R rating but had its Twitter account temporarily suspended and 50,000 of its followers erased shortly after the film debuted.

Twitter said that the account was suspended in error.

“It wasn’t directly about this account. When an account violates the Twitter Rules, the system looks for linked accounts to mitigate things like ban evasion,” a spokeswoman explained at the time, via email. “In this case, the account was mistakenly caught in our automated systems for ban evasion.”

R RATING FOR PRO-LIFE MOVIE ‘UNPLANNED’ LAUGHABLE, WRONG

Bratcher had also previously criticized Google after the tech giant allegedly categorized the film as “propaganda,” which spurred backlash from social media.

Appearing on “Fox & Friends” last week, “Unplanned” filmmakers and writers Chuck Konzelman and Cary Solomon discussed their frustration with the pushback they’ve been receiving when trying to market the film.

COMEDIAN SAMANTHA BEE KNOCKS PRO-LIFE FILM ‘UNPLANNED,’ A SURPRISE HIT, AS ‘MOSTLY MADE-UP’ PROPAGANDA

“[Twitter] closed us down on opening night, which, considering we had the account for nine months, was quite unusual,” Solomon told “Fox & Friends” host Steve Doocy. “It just so happens that happens on opening night which, for a movie, is the most important night of the whole run.”

Konzelman added that he doesn’t think the tech company gave an adequate reason as to why it shut down the “Unplanned” account in the first place saying that he believes its pro-life message was to blame.

ABBY JOHNSON: ‘UNPLANNED’ IS MY STORY AND YOU CAN’T UNSEE IT

“Well, we are completely blocked at every turn. I mean, our primary difficulty was with Google, who refused to take any of the advertising for our film. All of our banner ads up until our date of release were refused,” Konzelman said. “Basically, they identified us with a conservative issue, which is the pro-life side of the abortion issue. They said, ‘your marketing is related to abortion.’ We said, ‘no it’s not. It’s a film.’ And they still refused us.”

The creative duo claimed that Netflix “has no appetite” for the film and that Amazon Prime will likely pass on it as well in favor of a pro-choice film.

Alyssa Milano is offering women who have experienced abortion a chance to tell their stories.

The “Mistresses” alum reached out to her social media followers via Twitter on Friday and said their “personal abortion” stories would be shared on her upcoming podcast “Sorry Not Sorry.”

“If you’d like to share your personal abortion story on my podcast to help shine a light on the importance of bodily autonomy, please record story on your voice memo app and email it to below address. If you’d like to remain anonymous please say so in your email. #SorryNotSorry,” the actress and human rights activist tweeted.

ALYSSA MILANO: ‘THE RED MAGA HAT IS THE NEW WHITE HOOD’

Last week, Milano and some 30 Georgia-based TV and film workers urged Republican Gov. Brian Kemp to veto an abortion ban that has drawn scorn from Hollywood figures.

ALYSSA MILANO, 49 OTHER CELEBRITIES THREATEN GEORGIA WITH ‘LOSS OF BILLIONS’ OVER NEW ABORTION BILL

The so-called “heartbeat bill” would prohibit most abortions in the state after a fetal heartbeat is detected, which can come as early as six weeks into a pregnancy — before many women know they are having a child. It would not apply in the case of rape, incest or if the life of the mother is in danger.

Georgia’s current law allows abortions to be performed up to 20 weeks into the pregnancy. The bill will allow rape and incest victims to have an abortion at up to 20 weeks, but would require them to file an official police report, 11 Alive reported.

Milano previously slammed the state as “totally corrupt” after Kemp won the gubernatorial election over Democratic candidate Stacey Abrams.

“There are over 20 productions shooting in Georgia,” she tweeted. “Is the entertainment industry willing to support the economy of a totally corrupt state that suppresses democracy; where the winner isn’t the best choice for the people but the best schemer or crook?”

‘Sister, Sister’s’ Jackée Harry claims Eartha Kitt slapped her over alleged affair with late icon’s boyfriend

Jackée Harry is opening up about an alleged altercation with Eartha Kitt over the late singer’s boyfriend.

The “Sister, Sister” actress, 62, revealed the news in a tweet on Wednesday after she was asked, “What’s the most surreal encounter you’ve had with someone famous?”

Harry responded, claiming that: “Eartha Kitt slapped the f— outta me! She thought I was sleeping with her boyfriend.. which I was, but I didn’t know he was taken. 😩💔”

The “Paynes” actress’ shocking admission quickly spurred reactions from fans who expressed their surprise at Harry’s revelation.

“I’m just shook at the fact there’s a man with enough juice to successfully holla at Jackée Harry and Eartha Kitt,” one Twitter user wrote, to which Harry responded, “He didn’t just eat the groceries, he restocked the shelves.”

The comedian has yet to publicly release the identity of the mystery man, but when further pressed about the man in question, noted that: “He was a dual piano ‘playa.’ We didn’t know he was going to tickle both of our keys.”

Known most notably for her role as Lisa Landry on the ’90s sitcom, Harry confirmed to Steve Harvey last year that a reboot for the classic comedy is in the works.

“Yeah, it’s happening!” a jovial Harry confirmed when asked about the ongoing rumors. “I’m excited. Tia and Tamera [Mowry] … my babies, too. They won’t leave me alone. I can’t get rid of none of these women!” she joked.

However, after Harry’s confirmation, co-star Tia Mowry announced that there was “no new news to report” regarding a potential reboot.

“Hey guys! Been seeing loads of tweets about the Sister, Sister, reunion,” Mowry tweeted at the time. “I hate to say it, but I have no NEW news to report to you.

Jennifer Lopez revealed that her ex-boyfriend Sean “Diddy” Combs reached out to her fiancé, Alex Rodriguez, to apologize after he wrote a questionable comment underneath one of her Instagram photos.

“He wrote Alex after [commenting],” the “World of Dance” judge, 49, said on Power 105.1’s “The Breakfast Club” on Wednesday. “He was like, ‘I didn’t mean anything by it. I have nothing but respect for you guys. I’m so happy for you guys.’”

Lopez noted that she didn’t harbor any hard feelings about Combs’ “OMG” comment, which was followed by a heart-eyes emoji and immediately spurred former New York Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez to leave his own loving message, writing “Lucky me” with a heart emoji. “We were together so many years ago. It’s just like – we were kids, you know?”

The “Hustlers” star also told the radio show that she wasn’t taken aback by Rodriguez’s reaction and loves that he speaks his mind so freely. “He doesn’t play. He’s a crazy Dominican,” she joked. “Do not disrespect that man.”

Diddy and Lopez dated from 1999 and into the new millennium before splitting in 2001. During their two-year stint, the pair garnered major headlines for their over-the-top romance and red carpet looks. In 2000, Lopez stole the show when she debuted an iconic Grammys look in a see-through green Versace dress with a deep plunging V-cut from her chest down to her navel.

The exes reunited last year during the final night of Lopez’s Las Vegas residency where Lopez sang to Diddy, who was front-and-center while her beau, A-Rod, watched over the performance.

The couple announced their engagement last month and have actively embraced their blended family and have wholly welcomed each other’s children. Lopez is a mother to 11-year-old twins Max and Emme, which whom she shares with Marc Anthony, while Rodriguez shares daughters Ella, 10, and Natasha, 14, with ex-wife Cynthia Scurtis.

It seems as if Tarek El Moussa accidentally spilled the beans on the sex of pregnant ex-wife Christina Anstead’s baby.

While speaking about his relationship with his ex-wife and business partner on Monday, the “Flip or Flop” star might have unknowingly revealed that Anstead is having a baby boy.

“You know, it’s been a few years now – at the beginning, it was like pulling teeth, let’s be honest. But, things are good today – she’s remarried, she’s actually pregnant – everyone knows that,” El Moussa, 37, told TMZ. “She’s having a son, my kids are super excited, I’m excited for her new chapter in life, and they’re a great couple – and I really do hope the best for them.”

7 THINGS YOU DIDN’T KNOW ABOUT CHRISTINA EL MOUSSA

Anstead, 35, and her husband Ant, 40, announced last month via social media that they are expecting a baby this coming fall.

“@ant_anstead and I are so excited to announce #babyansteadthis link opens in a new tab coming this September!! The kids are all so excited to meet their new sibling ♥️” the mom-of-two wrote alongside a photo of a sonogram.

“#5 #Gonnaneedabiggercarthis link opens in a new tab! 🚌 😂,” she joked.

Following El Moussa’s accidental reveal, a rep for Anstead told Us Weekly on Tuesday that: “While Christina and Ant wished they could have shared the news themselves, they are very excited to welcome a baby boy in the fall.”

Anstead shares son Brayden, 3, and daughter Taylor, 8, with El Moussa, while Ant also has two children from his previous marriage: son Archie, 12, and daughter Amelie, 15.

The couple surprised fans when they secretly married in December 2018 in Newport Beach, Calif. after they began dating in November 2017.

Lori Loughlin’s name missing from list of guilty pleas in admissions scam: What it could mean for the actress

Westlake Legal Group lori-loughlins-name-missing-from-list-of-guilty-pleas-in-admissions-scam-what-it-could-mean-for-the-actress Lori Loughlin’s name missing from list of guilty pleas in admissions scam: What it could mean for the actress Julius Young fox-news/topic/college-admissions-scandal fox-news/entertainment/events/in-court fox news fnc/entertainment fnc article ab31887d-5d2a-57a7-b531-89ffc53a404f

Felicity Huffman has agreed to plead guilty in the college admissions cheating scandal that has entangled wealthy parents throughout the country.

On Monday, the “Desperate Housewives” alum, 56, announced her decision, explaining that she accepts “full responsibility” for her actions of allegedly paying $15,000 disguised as a tax-deductible charitable donation so her daughter could take part in an apparently rigged college entrance exam.

However, one name that was noticeably absent from the list of 14 defendants who agreed to enter guilty pleas was fellow actress Lori Loughlin – a risk that may hurt the “Fuller House” star chances of cutting a favorable deal down the line, according to a former prosecutor.

“Well, the deal for people who pled out today – they got the best deal possible. Again, even though there was the seven to nine [months of possible prison time], the deal is in that zero to six range – which is the lowest you’re going to get,” former New York State prosecutor Adam Citron told Fox News after the plea deals were announced on Monday.

HOT POCKETS HEIRESS AMONG THOSE EMBROILED IN COLLEGE ADMISSIONS SCANDAL

“It obviously helps that they’re pleading quickly as not to drag out the case and it shows that they’re accountable for their actions and they’re showing remorse. I’m sure in the pre-trial interviews they present themselves as remorseful and they’re already making statements showing remorse. So these are not stupid people – they know how to act to get the best deal and also play to the court to try and get the most lenient sentence possible.”

Loughlin and designer husband Mossimo Giannulli, 55, are accused of agreeing to pay $500,000 in bribes to have their two daughters, 20-year-old Isabella and 19-year-old YouTube star Olivia Jade, designated as recruits for the USC crew team. Neither of their daughters are rowers.

Citron noted that there is a possibility the 54-year-old Loughlin hadn’t yet been offered a deal and indicated that she simply may not be a part of the first round of defendants who cut deals in their cases.

“With Lori Loughlin, it’s unclear and it’s possible that she may have not even been offered anything yet. They could be saying, ‘We’ll do these fifteen people this week and these people next week for interviews – or if they’re holding her to an offering not as beneficial with a higher jail sentence,” Citron explained.

He continued: “If I was her attorney and she was offered something not as advantageous, my recommendation would be to kind of let the dust settle, let these people plea out and have a couple more news cycles where people start to lose attention to the case. So that’s very possible, but it’s unclear whether they’ve offered her anything yet or if they’re just waiting to offer her something when they do the next round of people.”

“If I was her attorney, I would not be happy with how she acted.”

— Former New York state prosecutor Adam Citron

When the “Beverly Hills: 90210” alum initially appeared in federal court in Los Angeles, a court sketch artist described Loughlin’s demeanor as “a little arrogant.” Additionally, while entering a Massachusetts court to face charges last week, Loughlin signed autographs and posed for selfies with fans – behavior that Citron says doesn’t aid her interests in the eyes of the court.

“The optics look horrible for Lori Loughlin. The court wants to see that you’re taking this seriously, that you’re remorseful, that you’re accountable for your actions and not treating it like it’s a concert. It’s a very serious proceeding with serious charges with a lot of ramifications,” said Citron. “It’s very serious – she should not have been treating this like it was a red carpet affair. She feels unquenchable – she’s not taking this seriously.”

“If I was her attorney, I would not be happy with how she acted.”

Despite Loughlin’s behavior, Citron believes it’s possible the actress could be putting on an about-face as a means of deflecting any anguish she may be facing behind the scenes.

“It’s possible that this is some sort of a defense mechanism and that she’s going home at night and she is very shaken by this, which she should be – and she doesn’t know how to react in such a situation, so her natural defense mechanism is to kind of put on a smile and wave,” the lawyer explained.

“It’s hard to say, but again – it’s going to be a question that I’m sure any pre-sentence interviewer will be asking. [Loughlin] definitely put doubt in the mind of whoever is interviewing her for the pre-sentence report with respect to how truthful she’s being if she does show that she’s remorseful. A judge could very easily at a sentencing hearing ask her that question along the lines of, ‘It appears you’re remorseful today, but how can you account for your actions at the arraignment?’”

Reps for Loughlin did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment.
