They came, they posed, and one of them may have conquered. 23 year old Miami girl Arena Turner was chosen from the curvy pack at last year’s audition for Mo'Nique's F.A.T. Chance, which took place on March 5, 2006 at the Miami Marriott Biscayne Bay. If you’d like to celebrate full-figured beauty with Arena and catch the two-hour premiere of the show, head over to Silqui’s (2710 NW 167th St., Miami Gardens) on Saturday night at 8:00. The program will be shown on 42 inch plasma screens throughout the venue, and Arena plans to hand out tiaras to any plus size women in attendance, to encourage them to celebrate their beauty right along with her. Visit www.oxygen.com/monique for special sneak peeks at the show. --Patrice Yursik
