It's been like Christmas around here with this month's Friday Night Parting Shots, with the gift being a slew of pageant winners getting caught behaving badly. First it was lovely Miss Great Britain, Danielle Lloyd, who was stripped of her title for stripping for Playboy and bonking a judge, an act which when put into context is really a touching love story.
Then there was Miss USA, and potential OWCPG of 2007, Tara Conner, who was given a second chance this week by Donald Trump after supposedly lip-sticking it to Miss Teen USA while club-slutting it up on drugs and booze. Trump's Jesus-like forgiveness was a lesson for all of us on not to pass judgment on others; at least when it involves a really hot chick and lots of good publicity for your pageant and upcoming season of "The Apprentice."
And now there's this week Friday Night Parting Shot, Miss Nevada Katie Rees (above left), who found out that what happens in a Florida nightclub when you're young (she was 19 at the time) and free and naked and kissing other girls and simulating sex acts, doesn't stay there, like it does in Vegas. Nope, it shows up all over the Internet three years later and rips the tiara off your head faster than Trump can say "You're Fired," which he did.
In response, her attorney claimed that "it was an isolated drinking party incident and she was very young and immature at the time. She completely changed her behavior after that and is today a fine upstanding citizen." And we 100% accept this because we all did stupid things when we were 19 and really throughout our 20s and still today. Plus Rees now knows not to do these type of things.... at least when a camera is around, unless you own the camera and don't get drunk one night and email the photos to a friend or post them on your MySpace page, unless you think the publicity would put you in a better position than if you were just Miss Nevada and had nothing else going for you.
And speaking of MySpace, we can all take to heart what Rees says on her MySpace page, our friendship pending. Laying down some seriously deep thoughts, the 22-year-old quotes the great 20th century philosopher Bob Marley, saying:
"who are you to judge the life i live? i know i'm not perfect - and i don't have to be, but before you start pointing fingers, make sure your hands are clean."
So wise. So young. So hot.
After the jump, some of the extremely graphic photos that got Katie Rees canned (and will get you canned if you open at work), plus a hilarious video parody of Miss Tara Conner at her press conference this week.
