Boys In Beauty Pageants Are Creepy, Too


Say the word “beauty pageants” and the first image that pops into most people’s heads is a little girl dolled up in gobs of whore paint, Jon Benet Ramsey-style. The last image to boot up in your mental file? A little boy.

Is Doug Reinhardt A Beauty Queen Junkie?

Doug Reinhardt has traded in one beauty queen for another. “The Hills” actor was dating the newly crowned Miss USA, Rima Fakih, but apparently he wanted an … upgrade? The dude is now seeing former Miss World, Lane Lindell. The couple met at a pool party and have been hanging out ever since. Lane is not only pretty, she’s actually going to college, and she and Doug have been seen together all over Hollywood. Tonight, they’ll be attending an L.A. Lakers game. “Lane’s face lights up when she talks to him,” said a source. “They just get along so well.”

This is cute and all but, seriously, what’s up with Reinhardt and girls who are only famous because they’re rich or pretty or both? That didn’t work out so well with Paris Hilton, so why continue the pattern? [Radar Online] Keep reading »

Tripping Won’t Cost You The Miss USA Crown

For all those aspiring beauty pageant hopefuls out there, here’s glimmer of hope. Though, generally, poise and grace are keys to winning the crown, the latest Miss USA wasn’t exactly full of balance and stability this weekend at the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino. Rima Fakih, a 24-year-old Lebanese immigrant, took the stage in a white gown as Miss Michigan, and while showing off her evening wear, she almost tripped on her train. Now, that small error could have majorly altered the final results of just who would go on to win the entire show, but not this time. Despite her close call with the train, judges found Rima to be the most beautiful, most elegant, and most well-spoken of the contestants, and they named her the newest Miss USA. Just like models, beauty contestants prove they’re real people with their balance issues. [Daily Mail]

Two things happened to Rima Fakih yesterday. She nearly went splat after tripping over the long train of her wedding-like gown. And more importantly, the Miss Michigan USA pageant queen was crowned Miss USA. Rima, who was born in Lebanon and moved to the U.S. as a baby, said she knew she’d be crowned the winner when she saw Donald Trump‘s expression. “That’s the same look that he gives them when he says, ‘You’re hired,’ on ‘The Apprentice,’ she said. Rima will go on to represent the U.S. in the 2010 Miss Universe pageant. She also will receive a New York apartment for one year, an undisclosed salary, and various beauty, health, and professional services. After the jump, find out more about Rima, including the surprising talent that helped her win another kind of contest. Keep reading »

Miss USA Contestants Strip Down For Photos. Cue The Controversy.


Conveniently just in time for the live webcast of the Miss USA pageant tomorrow night, there’s a BIG CONTROVERSY stirring up lots of press for the event. (And since I know it’s hard to keep your pageants straight, this is not Miss America. This is the pageant that brought us Carrie Prejean, the one which Donald Trump owns, which sends its winner to Miss Universe, and which was featured in that MTV reality series “Pageant Place.”) A few days ago, Miss USA unveiled its promo photos, showing the contestants in racy lingerie, posing on beds in all sorts of suggestive ways. Apparently, some of the women were not OK with the shoot. Because everyone loves a good beauty pageant scandal, right? Keep reading »

Quotable: “Meatball” Is The Fairest Bulldog In All The Land

“For me, the bulldog is the ugliest thing I can put my hands on. He’s got to have bloodshot eyes. The right kind of bloodshot eyes, like on a Friday night after you’ve been out socializing. He’s got to have that drooling look on his face, and then a little slobber coming down. That is the most beautiful bulldog to me in the whole wide world.”

Dolph Pulliam, the master of ceremonies at this year’s 31st annual Beautiful Bulldog pageant in Iowa, on what it takes to score the crown. This year’s winner, a pup named Meatball, above, has the hungover look down pat. [Associated Press] Keep reading »
