Before anyone jumps this young lady..........I'd suggest all carefully read this and understand her motivation. She's dead-on right NOT to let herself be used as the climax of some boneheaded PR stunt, capitalizing on 9/11.

I say.......GOOD for her.

"I say.......GOOD for her."

I agree. (However, she probably does have a contract obligation.)

I understand the sentiment, but she most likely signed a contract when she entered the contest that stated certain things would be provided by the show to the winner, and certain obligations would be fulfilled by the winner and this could easily be one of them.

It can be a touchy process but they probably can’t legally force her to perform – but they may very well be able to find her to have broken her agreement and may terminate their relationship with her.

It’s just one of those things she has to decide for herself… before she decides to not perform and then sue them because they broke their contract when she may well be the one who actually did it. She needs to consult her lawyer, IMO.

I read it exactly like you read it. Glad to hear she wants out, and that she has a higher maturity level than those who orchestrated this.

I agree, seems to me that she wants to honor those who died on 9/11 rather than exploit them.

Hats off to this young lady

My take also. The lady is showing some respect, but then she is from the south.
