I’m Ready For A Bald Miss USA

Miss Delaware, Kayla Martell, one of the ladies competing for the Miss America title this week, believes she has a leg up on her fellow competitors … her baldness. Suffering from a rare form of alopecia, Kayla started losing her hair in her early teens. “By the time I was 13, my hair was out completely. The thought of getting a wig never crossed my mind at all. My mother first brought up the suggestion and brought home this awful brown wig. I don’t know why, because I’m naturally blond and everyone in my family is blond. I wore it to school, but took it off in the middle of the day, put it in my backpack and never looked back,” she explained. Keep reading »

Decrowned Miss USA Leona Gage Dies At 71

Leona Gage, the OG of beauty pageant scandalites, died this weekend of heart failure. So what’s her story? In 1957, Leona was crowned Miss USA only to have her title stripped days later. The scandal? That she was married and had two children. Well, I never! Actually, the story is pretty juicy—Leona claimed to be 21 on her pageant forms but was actually 18. She’d gotten married at age 14 and had her second baby at 16. After the Miss USA scandal, she became a regular on late night television, appearing on “The Ed Sullivan Show” and several others. And we think tabloid culture is a new thing? [NY Daily News] 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 »
