Kari Ann Peniche is a beauty queen from Gresham, Oregon, who once held the Miss Teen USA title. She was stripped of that title after...

Kari Ann Peniche is back in the news for all the wrong reasons. All the wrong reasons except one, that is.

The Celebrity Rehab star is pregnant... but the identity of the father is unknown and husband Justin Williams has filed for divorce due to this uncertanity.

TMZ has obtained court documents submitted by Williams that ask a judge to order genetic testing to determine if "this is a child of the marriage." The couple got married in February.

Kari Ann made headlines in August 2009 for appearing in a weird naked video with Eric Dane and Rebecca Gayheart. Her confusing, troubled past also includes domestic abuse at age 20, being crowned Miss Teen USA, posing in Playboy, being engaged to Aaron Carter and entering rehab for cocaine abuse.

In other words: the latest scandal, sadly, fits perfectly into Peniche's poor decision-making pattern.

Everyone wants a piece of Tiger Woods ... if you know what we mean! For many women, we mean sexually. For Kari Ann Peniche, we're talking about fame.

Remember Kari Ann? No? Shocking. She's only the 2004 Miss USA winner who was stripped of her title... and last year stripped for the Eric Dane nude tape.

When she's not in rehab, appearing on VH1 reality shows, getting engaged to random celebs and posing naked, Kari Ann Peniche is also an aspiring singer.

She's almost as good as Heidi Montag, to give you an idea.

Her latest "effort" is an ode to Tiger Woods and his many mistresses, entitled "U Me and Tiger Makes 3." Sounds like a ripoff of Britney Spears' "3." Oh well.

Every once in awhile, Kari Ann Peniche turns up somehow.

Nothing like trying to reclaim your 15 minutes at the expense of a huge sex scandal. Classy move. Not that we're surprised ... after all, this is Kari Ann Peniche.

Follow the jump to see this nonsense for yourself ...

The lovely Kari Ann Peniche and other upstanding Z-listers be taking part in the latest spinoff of Celebrity Rehab, Sex Rehab with Dr. Drew, beginning November 1.

The stimulating new VH1 series will tackle the widely unexamined and wildly uninhibited world of sex addiction. The pleasure begins building at 10 p.m. Sunday.

Kari Ann Peniche in Playboy

Kari Ann is definitely the biggest name among the cast, thanks to her participation in this year's Eric Dane nude tape and her troubled past as a possible pimp.

The disgraced former Miss Teen USA also posed in Playboy, was engaged to Aaron Carter for like a week, and started her own clothing line, Strung Out Girl.

How apropos.

Hi, my name is Kari Ann Peniche and I am a sex addict. I enjoy pina coladas, long walks on the beach and getting naked with Eric Dane and Rebecca Gayheart.

The cast of the new series includes a number of people you possibly have heard of (if you follow the oft-colliding worlds of porn and celebrity sex tapes).

It also features some people you probably do not know. In addition to Kari Ann Peniche, here's a look at some of the upstanding characters joining her:

  • Jennifer Ketchum (porn "actress")
  • Jamie Lovett (surfer, wakeboarder)
  • Nicole Narain (model, sex tape star)
  • Kendra Jade (former porn star)
  • Duncan Roy (music producer)
  • Amber Smith (alleged model)
  • Phil Varone (musician)

Apparently Shauna Sand wasn't available.

Troubled singer Mindy McCready is denying the allegations made by troubled beauty queen Kari Ann Peniche that she leaked the Eric Dane nude tape.

"I did not want to be dragged into this. I don't want to be part of this," McCready, who roomed with Peniche on Celebrity Rehab, told Access Hollywood.

"She is evil personified," McCready says of Kari Ann Peniche. "She is evil in human form. She will hurt anyone and everyone she can to make money."

Following the release of the Eric Dane tape last week, Peniche pointed fingers at McCready, who she says stole her laptop, which had the tape on it.

McCready says Peniche is a pathological liar. Who's telling the truth?

  • Mindy McCready Mug Shot
  • Mindy McCready Mug Shot: Take Three!
  • Mindy McCready Mug Shot: Reloaded!

People with three separate mug shots? Not the most trustworthy.

Lawyers for Eric Dane, his wife Rebecca Gayheart, and Kari Ann Peniche met to resolve the issue, and the tape was believed to have been given to Dane.

That is, until it was leaked a week ago. The LAPD is investigating the leak of the tape, as well as the alleged drug use that the stars partake in during it.

Kari Ann Peniche stands by her accusations, but then again, she is also accused of running a sex-for-hire ring, so her own credibility is shaky at best.

There's also this photo from the Eric Dane tape ...

LAPD detectives have confirmed that the Eric Dane nude tape leaked early this week is under investigation as the video "contained images that could link celebrities engaging in illegal activity," according to a department statement.

In the Eric Dane tape, which also features his wife Rebecca Gayheart and former Miss Teen USA Kari Ann Peniche - the three appear rather intoxicated.

Gayheart is heard saying, "I'm so high."

The LAPD says "no determination has been made as to whether or not the DVD contained any information that could be used for a criminal investigation."

It is also looking into "archived articles and photographs of porn stars and formally convicted madams, which could readily be found over the internet."

Kari Ann Peniche, who lost her Miss Teen USA crowd for posing in Playboy, is also alleged to be, or to have been involved in a sex-for-hire business.

Police are reviewing the DVD "for potential evidence" and "therefore, additional information about the contents of the DVD will be treated as confidential."

Peniche's manager, David Weintraub, said the 12-minute Eric Dane naked tape was made two years and "in good fun. This is not a sex tape," he added.

"It's guys having fun, hanging out together. There is no sex involved in this."

Ed Hardy designer Christian Audigier sure knows how to pick winners when it comes to celebrity partnerships he solicits, then thinks better of and denies.

In what would have been the most ironic celebrity fashion collaboration yet, Eric Dane nude tape star Kari Ann Peniche said she was working on a new line.

Britney Spears, Plaid Shirt

She made her way over to Audigier's studios yesterday, fueling speculation, and told celebrity gossip outlets afterward that she scored herself a design gig.

"I'm gonna be working on a bikini line," Kari Ann Peniche said.

"I start on Friday."

Sure she is.

Like Jon Gosselin before her, however, she might want to verify that with Christian first. Jon paraded around St. Tropez with Hailey Glassman earlier this summer and blabbed about working with Audiger, only to have the plug pulled promptly.

The Ed Hardy designer now denies everything Kari Ann said, basically.

A source close to Audigier denied reports of any collaboration with Kari Ann Peniche, a self-proclaimed budding swimwear designer, saying "those are just rumors."

Absolutely no clue where those rumors could have started. No clue.

Who the frick is Kari Ann Peniche and how in the hell did she wind up in a video with a nude Eric Dane and Rebecca Gayheart? This is a question for the ages.

We've tried our best to answer it below.

Long before the Eric Dane sex tape, the "quality hang" of the Grey's Anatomy star and his wife had a past that can be called troubled and intriguing.

And hard to keep straight.

Whatever you call it, the reality TV-starring, bikini-designing, Playboy-modeling, former Aaron Carter fiancee and Miss Teen USA let people down.

"We are disappointed," her mother Lee Ann Peniche told E! News. "She's 25 years old and she has made some poor choices. Things always came very easy for Kari. She is upset. I am certain she is being coached to keep her chin up."

Just not her clothes on.

To hear her mom tell it, Kari Ann Peniche's upbringing was normal.

Kari Ann Peniche Nude

Kari Ann Peniche was stripped of her beauty crown for posing nude.

"She played soccer all the way to her senior year in high school and was a cheerleader. She went to a small Lutheran school. She was just an amazing person," Lee Ann said. "Growing up, this was a young lady who had a wonderful life."

Not to hear her tell it. Last year, Kari Ann told Steppin' Out magazine that she was molested by a neighbor as a child, then raped by a stranger at 13.

Four years later, Kari Ann Peniche said she was raped a second time on a modeling assignment in Korea. Afterward, she "woke up behind a dumpster."

Her mom's take? That's BS.

Kari Ann Peniche did not have sex with Eric Dane and Rebecca Gayheart, the troubled former beauty queen, who believes their nude tape was stolen from her, says.

The alleged Eric Dane sex tape, featuring the drugged-up naked trio, contains absolutely no sex, and none occurred when the camera was off, Kari Ann said.

In a statement, Dane's lawyer went out of his way to distinguish between a sex tape and a naked video. Which is not to say the 12-minute tape isn't risque.

The three played dress up and the two naked women then lounged together in a bathtub as Eric filmed them, high as kites and musing about porn names.

It's weirder than it is hot.

As for how it was leaked, Kari Ann Peniche says the nude video was stored on the hard drive of her computer, but stolen by troubled country star Mindy McCready, her roommate after the two completed a stint on the TV show Celebrity Rehab.

Kari Ann Peniche says she got into an argument with McCready over money and the singer ganked her hard drive as a result. Peniche freaked about personal info on the hard drive getting out and filed a stolen property report with the LAPD.

Peniche was kicked off Celebrity Rehab for stealing from McCready, ironically.

The disappearance of her hard drive eventually led to a meeting of reps and lawyers for Eric Dane, Rebecca Gayheart, Kari Ann and Mindy, in which Dane was granted rights to the video and everything was assumed to be resolved.

Until the Eric Dane tape surfaced on the Internet yesterday, that is.

There is another rumor going around that the nude tape surfaced as part of an official investigation into Kari Ann Peniche's alleged sex-for-hire business.

In any case, here are some photos of Kari Ann Peniche, the third wheel in what is definitely the weirdest celebrity threesome with a married couple ever:

Eric Dane's lawyer wants to differentiate between a "sex tape" and a "nude tape." But whatever you want to call it, he's willing to sue you for exploiting it.

A video showing the Grey's Anatomy star, his wife Rebecca Gayheart and former Miss Teen USA Kari Ann Peniche nude and in compromising positions is ancient history, according to Marty Singer, an attorney for the married couple.

Singer says using the tape for commercial purposes will mean a big lawsuit.

In a statement released Monday shortly after the Eric Dane tape circulated, the actor's lawyer said of the (non) sex video being discussed and shown online:

"This is simply a private, consensual moment involving a married couple, shot several years ago, which was never intended to be seen by the public."

The statement continues:

"Although the participants are nude, the tape is not a sex tape. It is a private tape made for my clients' personal use, and nobody has the right to exploit it."

Singer said that "if anyone exploits the tape, they will be violating my clients' rights and will be exposed to significant liability." We don't doubt it one bit.

The attorney reiterated that the Eric Dane tape is a "private, confidential tape," and added that "from what I've seen, it's a naked tape, not a sex tape."

The third woman in the video is Kari Ann Peniche, who in 2002 was crowned Miss Teen USA but was later stripped of the title after posing for Playboy.

Kari Ann Peniche, who was once engaged to Aaron Carter and appeared on Celebrity Rehab for sex addiction, is alleged to be involved in a sex-for-hire business.

We will have more on that aspect of the Eric Dane tape later.

"You gotta be two of the f*%king hottest girls this side of Mulholland." - Eric Dane

If you couldn't tell from the headline, Grey's Anatomy star Eric Dane, his wife Rebecca Gayheart and former Miss Teen USA / Playboy model Kari Ann Peniche apparently engaged in a threesome and filmed a sex tape together.

A lot of drugs were apparently involved.

With every celebrity sex tape, one wonders just what the hell the participants were possibly thinking. In this case, it's pretty clear: they weren't.

Our analysis: After ingesting a boatload of mind-altering drugs, a nude Eric Dane nailed his wife Rebecca Gayheart and beauty-queen-turned-Hollywood-madam Kari Ann Peniche. While debating the best porn star names of course.

Eric Dane, Kari Ann Peniche

Eric Dane and Kari Ann Peniche take a sex tape break.

In the video, a 12-minute romp, the inebriated threesome lounges nude in the Studio City apartment of Kari Ann, passing around the camera and, for giggles, discussing what their names would be if they joined the adult film industry.

Dane settles on "Tuff Hedemen" (his favorite bull rider). Soon they move to the bathroom where the ladies disrobe and Eric takes over the camera.

In truth, it's not very exciting. It is, however, very real and they are very naked.

Follow the jump for some still photos from the Eric Dane sex tape ...
