Yeah, that headline should be good for a Google hit or two…
Miss Nevada USA (in red in these pics) was stripped of her title today after racy pictures of her surfaced. The pictures of Katie Rees, now 22-years old, were taken when she was only 17 at a party in Tampa, FL.
In a statement, Paula M. Shugart, President of the Miss Universe Organization, said “Katie Rees has been relieved of her duties as Miss Nevada USA 2007. First Runner-up Helen Salas will assume the title and compete at the 2007 MISS USA Pageant on March 23 in Los Angeles.”
Just a day after Donald Trump granted Miss USA Tara Conner a second chance after allegations of drug use, underage drinking, and sexual misconduct surfaced, the Donald has approved Miss Nevada’s dethroning for the lurid pictures.
After seeing the full series of pics, I can’t blame the Donald for his decision, even though they were taken five years ago.
More pics after the jump (marginally work safe), so you can judge for yourself whether or not she should have lost her title for this.
