Geneviève de Fontenay reacts to the departure of Sylvie Tellier
On August 30, the patron saint of Miss bowed out. The former president of the beauty pageant spoke about it in a press release.
“It was with some emotion that I learned of the departure of Sylvie Tellier from the management of the Miss France company. Despite our disagreements, I wish him every success in the pursuit of his career.” begins Geneviève de Fontenay in a press release shared this Wednesday, August 31.
24 hours after the surprise announcement of Sylvie Tellier’s departure, her predecessor at the head of the Miss France committee shared her feelings. A much-awaited reaction because of the stormy relationship between the two women. But Geneviève de Fontenay was appeased, even almost laudatory. “She has a lot of resources and I’m sure she will bounce back with talent”she continues.
A confusing speech from the lady in the hat who, resentful, had not been kind to Sylvie Tellier. For fifteen years, Geneviève de Fontenay has been waging a tenacious communication war. The latter is regularly offended by the decisions of the one who succeeded him in 2007 as president of the Miss France organization. “It’s not a rumor anymore: Alexia Laroche-Joubert did eliminate her […] I haven’t digested what she’s done to me in the past few years at all so I’m not going to cry for her.”she said again last June, in reference to the arrival of the new president of the company, Alexia Laroche-Joubert.
Geneviève de Fontenay speaks to Cindy Fabre
However, Geneviève de Fontenay also wanted to send a message to Cindy Fabre, Sylvie Tellier’s replacement. “That one of my ex-Miss France, crowned in 2005, succeeds him is excellent news. I send him my sincere congratulations.”she comments before explaining to keep “ excellent relations with Cindy and very good memories”. Serene, the former conservative director claims to have ” trust “ in Cindy Fabre for “preserving the values of Miss France”. An obvious allusion to the new rules proposed by Alexia Laroche-Joubert, authorizing transgender candidates to participate in the competition. A decision that Geneviève de Fontenay had judged “inconceivable and unnatural”.
Delighted with this change of direction within the Miss France committee, which she herself had chaired for twenty-six years, the 90-year-old former organizer concluded her message in the third person to say: “Geneviève de Fontenay, very happy! “.
