Stop us if you've heard this one, but Miss USA is under fire.
Rima Fakih is not in crown-losing trouble ... yet. But accusations of her "breaking the rules of conduct" have put The Tiara Patrol on high alert.
According to Fox News (of course), Fakih was suspected of sneaking out (of where, it's unclear) to party all night last week, then lying about it.
The Miss Universe Organization, which rules over its gorgeous winners with an iron fist, requested security tapes to see if a cover-up occurred.
"There was one night last week where [Rima Fakih] had some interviews the next day," says Paula Shugart, the president of the ridiculous organization.
"First we thought she wasn't at the apartment (which she shares in NYC with Miss Universe), and someone was trying to get her to the interview."
"She was sound asleep, and looked like she'd been out all night."
Fakih did make the interviews, but her handlers are still asking about the security tapes, as this is "serious business," especially after Tara Conner.Conner, of course, was the wild child who nearly lost the crown for her partying ways. Ultimately, Miss USA owner Donald Trump spared her.
Unlike the Conner case, Shugart said there is absolutely no evidence to indicate any type of substance abuse problems in Rima's situation.
Nonetheless, Fakih was still made talk to Conner about the incident.
Fakih will surrender her crown during the Miss USA Pageant June 20.
Given the personal restrictions that come with the gig - you have to be on your best behavior, at all times - it might be a bit of a release.
From day one, Fakih has been raising red flags within the organization. Right after her win, pics of her pole-dancing for a promotional event conducted by Detroit morning radio show "Mojo in the Morning" surfaced.
But after some investigation by MUO, it was determined that she didn’t breach any moral code of conduct, and thus was not stripped of her sash.
"We usually like to keep a handle on them," Shugart tells Fox. "We have talent managers to keep track, and they are supposed to tell us when they go out."
"Rima is definitely a high spirited, fun person. If she went out that night it wouldn't surprise us. ... I don't know if I'll ever know where she went."
Sounds like an organization The Dictator would love.
