Caught in stripper row,first Muslim Miss USAs star slips

Lebanese-born Rima Fakih, who became the first Muslim Miss USA, seems to have landed in trouble after news surfaced of her winning a pole dancing contest at a strip club in Detroit in 2007.

Fakih, 24, was photographed sliding up and down a stripper’s pole in a blue tank top, hot pants and high heels. Other photographs from the competition showed her wearing a bra stuffed with dollar bills, reports dailymail.co.uk.

The photos were posted on the website of a Detroit-based radio show following her triumph at the beauty pageant on Sunday in Las Vegas where she had beaten 50 other contestants to win the crown.

The radio show’s producers claim they have been contacted by the organisers of the Miss Universe competition requesting additional information regarding Miss Fakih’s involvement.
As the winner of Miss USA, the 24-year-old marketing executive from Michigan will represent the country in the international beauty contest later this year.
It is not known if organisers of Miss USA were aware of Miss Fakih winning the ‘Stripper 101’ contest at the Coliseum Gentleman’s Club. She is believed to have won a variety of prizes, including adult toys and a stripper’s pole.

The pageant was held at the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino on Sunday night.
Supporters had claimed that her success in the beauty pageant contest showed the true face of Arab Americans at a time when they have come under the spotlight over attempted terror attacks.

“We have culture. We have beauty. We have history, and today we made history,” dailymail.co.uk. quoted her friend Zouheir Alawieh as saying.
