Retro Garlic: Sorry Rita, We Tried ... 7 New Wonders of the World Chosen

We don't know how close the voting was ... Maybe you were in it, fighting neck-and-neck ...

But, alas, Rita Cosby, you got pushed out - again.

The new 7 Wonders of the Worlds were announced and our daring and dashing news gal didn't make the cut, as The Garlic reported back in March 2007, that she still had a shot.

The Winning Wonders included;

  • Chichén Itzá, Mexico
  • Christ Redeemer, Brazil
  • The Great Wall, China
  • Machu Picchu, Peru
  • Petra, Jordan
  • The Roman Coliseum, Italy
  • The Taj Mahal, India
Perhaps it was the Olbermann comment, but we thought that would win you some sympathy votes.

Your dogged pursuit of former JonBenet Ramsey murder suspect John Mark Karr surely must have brought some people over to your side of the column.

First you had "The Voice", then, inexplicably, you didn't.

And if only Dan Abrams didn't get cold feet, and launched that 24-Hour Anna Nicole Smith channel, you'd be sitting mighty pretty.

No response from Cosby, or her representatives, on not becoming a new World Wonder, or the speculation that Cosby will parlay her efforts into going after a new 7 Wonders of Nature title.


7 New Wonders of the World Chosen

Dogged Pursuit but no title
