Well, Donald Trump’s Miss Universe Organization has won a lawsuit against former Miss USA contestant Sheena Monnin to the tune of $5 million.

Yup, your mother was right: Nice guys finish last, and narcissists finish first.

Monnin had accused Donald and Co. of rigging the contest, the New York Post reports. She also said it was “trashy,” which we really didn’t need a court deposition to uncover. The Miss Universe Organization sued for defamation and a judge agreed.

“Going to arbitration was the appropriate action to take under the circumstances,” Trump told the Post. “And while I feel very badly for Sheena, she did the wrong thing. She was really nasty, and we had no choice. It is an expensive lesson for her.”
