Nik Richie is the proprietor of TheDirty, the gossip website that posted dick pics and dirty chats that Anthony Weiner sent to a 22-year-old he met online--after resigning from Congress and in the midst of a year-long apology tour that preceded an announcement that he intended to run for mayor of Ne ...

Kenya Moore--former Miss USA and current star of the Atlanta Real Housewives show on Bravo--is coming to Splash on April 4 to premiere her new song and video, "Gone With The Wind Fabulous." I interrupted my Kinky Boots-Fabulous life to catch her for a stimulating tete-a-tete.
A man handed me the above card at the fashion show for Academy of Art University on Friday night. I got so excited! All I have to do is get six haircuts and my seventh one will be free! This is sort of like those coupons that say, "Ten percent off anything you purchase over $10,000." Not exactly ... More >>
Beauty pageants condone all sorts of surgeries. In fact, sometimes they'll even pay for them. Remember when Miss USA footed the bill for Miss California's breast implants? But the Miss Universe pageant is strict about their contestants not having had sexual reassignment surgery, like Miss Univers ... More >>
Celebration? Rima Fakih, winner of the 2010 Miss USA beauty pageant, has been arrested on charges of doing something rather ugly -- drunk driving.
via Meet Amber Marie Collins. The 26-year-old is a graduate of NYU, she's a pre-school teacher, and she is New York's representative in the Miss USA pageant, which concludes tonight. She is also working it.
We've seen the uncomfortable situation that can arise when a 6-year-old gets patted down in the airport, and already Congress has said they are reviewing the incident. But it's not a one-off -- across generations people have increasingly expressed opposition to what they see as invasive airport sear ... More >>
Remember the Miss USA runner-up Carrie Prejean, who bible thumped her way to an anti-gay marriage stance, which seemed strange considering she had gotten biblical with herself for various photos and videos that seemed extremely unholy when they surfaced for the frothing masses? Carrie was pr ... More >>

New Yorkers get a bad rap from Real America as pushy and self-centered, each of us the star of our own Broadway (or reality) show. You're goddamn right we are. Davina Reeves, the outgoing Miss New York beauty queen, proved it on Thanksgiving when she hopped on the Macy's parade float of Miss ... More >>
"It's hard work, politicizing your whole life," read the subhed of Matt Labash's article in the rightwing Weekly Standard. At last, we thought when we saw this, they're going to own up to it! We can stop writing this accursed column -- and, freed of their delusions, conservatives can begin to live ... More >>
Last night's Miss USA pageant obviously picked up some pointers from last year's contest, when they wisely only made Carrie Prejean a runner-up. Had the moralizing strumpet won the top prize, she would have disgraced the entire organization with the nudie photos surfacing by the Scores--I me ... More >>
When last we left failed Miss USA candidate Carrie Prejean, she was revving up the conservative base with her anti-gay marriage ministry. She even agreed to appear in an ad supporting "traditional marriage" (i.e., no homosexuals allowed). Then Prejean's topless model shot was revealed -- extremely ... More >>
The status of Governor Paterson's gay marriage bill is garbled, possibly by the Governor himself. "Paterson backpedals on gay marriage," says Newsday, claiming he will "go along with a plan by State Senate Majority Leader Malcolm Smith not to put a same-sex marriage bill to a vote without knowing it ...

Unlike Miss USA, the Broadway Beauty Pageant--a benefit for the Ali Forney Center, hosted by Tovah Feldshuh--didn't attract anyone who felt gay marriage was a bad idea.

Ab ... More >>
Get ready for the new rightwing meme: that Miss North Carolina won the Miss USA pageant because of the velvet mafia. Miss California, Carrie Prejean, was asked by judge Perez Hilton (!) what she thought of gay marriage, and Prejean responded, "I think that I believe that a marriage should be between ... More >>
Remember the ages-ago scandal about Miss America Vanessa Williams having to remove her tiara because she had done a lesbian nudie spread? Well, that was mere bar nuts compared to the fact that former Miss USA Kelli McCarty has gone all the way in her porn movie Faithless--she doesn't even wear a sas ... More >>
