Cleopatra affected history because
She was beautiful. It’s that simple.
Was she perfect? Was she beyond
All reproach? Probably not -- but
She had a power, she had a gift
That the Miss Universe Pageant
Which I owned for several years
Was all about. Cybill Shepherd
Told Oprah that her beauty was like
Shaquille O’Neal being seven feet tall:
“So I decided to play basketball!”
Melania is also a beautiful woman
But more like Michael Jordan than
A Shaq or a LeBron James type.
