Alison Melder, Bobby Petrino’s text friend, lied about being Miss Bikini USA 2008

Alison Melder is a young, attractive lady who wears a bikini well, but she never won the Miss Bikini USA competition as she claimed. Melder became known last week when an investigation into Bobby Petrino’s phone records showed she exchanged several text messages with the fired Arkansas coach.

On a past modeling profile, Melder wrote “miss bikini usa 08″ and “miss motorcycle mania 08″ in the awards/credits section. She lied about the Miss Bikini USA 2008 part.

The Vice President and Chief Photographer for Miss Bikini USA emailed LBS to inform us that Melder did not win the competition. He also has no recollection of her even competing.

“I personally did the Arkansas event in August of ’08 and she WAS NOT there at all. ALL models that win MUST work with me and this girl did not. The winner from Arkansas in ’08 was a girl named Shirley and the over-all winner for Miss Bikini USA 2008 was Gia Allemand that went on to be on “The Bachelor,” he said in his email.

A quick look at the Bikini-USA website shows 16 women who received honors in connection with Miss Bikini USA 2008, none of whom are Alison Melder. They were so miffed with the false connection, they even wrote a long post on their website about the subject.

Bobby Petrino regularly texted ex-Miss Bikini USA Alison Melder

Bobby Petrino is the gift that keeps on giving. On Wednesday, Deadspin posted records of the former Arkansas football coach’s cell phone activity since September. On Thursday, they posted that Petrino was in regular contact with Alison Melder, a winner of the 2008 Miss Bikini USA and Miss Motorcycle Mania competitions. Deadspin says Petrino traded at least 200 texts with Melder, who is now a senate assistant for the Republican Party of Arkansas, from September-November, though to the best of their research, no calls were exchanged. Oh yeah, and Melder sent Petrino seven picture messages. We’re guessing those pictures weren’t of sample voting ballots.

I only have a few things to say. One, at 51, Petrino was impressively pulling more 20-year-olds than most college guys. Two, how did this guy even find time to coach with all the texting he was doing? And lastly, how dumb could this guy be to do all of his pimping from a university-issued phone knowing the records were available to the public? It’s obvious he thought he could do anything he pleased, but that’s just pure stupidity. You always have separate phones for your mistresses — that’s just common pimp knowledge.
