Outstanding!

Twenty-four year-old Miss Michigan, Rima Fakih, an immigrant from Lebanon, was crowned Miss USA last night!

Though she almost took a tumble in her evening gown, Rima admitted she knew she had won the title after noticing a certain look on pageant owner Donald Trump's face. She told reporters:

"That's the same look that he gives them when he says, 'You're hired,'."

Charming! Lovely! Well deserved!

Congrats, girl!

  3. 3

    she's pretty!!!! congrats to her as well.



  4. 4

    Well Deserved?? Really??? 1. She was not even born in the USA. 2. She said in her answer that birth control was a controlled substance. It wasn't the last time I checked…



  5. 5

    go Arabs!



  6. 6

    PERHAPS YOU DIDN'T SEE HER STRIPPER VIDEO YET!



  7. 7

    "That's the same look that he gives them when he says, 'You' hired, now lets get a room'."



  8. 8

    She's ugly.

    She is pretty now, but everyone knows that Arabian women get so fugly when they get older. So enjoy it now bb!!



  10. 10

    She sort of looks like Kim K.



  11. 11

    And she does a mean stipper pole dance!



  12. 12

    at first, i really wanted miss michigan to win! but then after she came out in a wedding dress, stumbled on stage, and answered her questions like a total idiot - i thought for sure she was out! i was stunned when she was crowned miss usa. she did have attitude and is very gorgeous, but she definitely had the worst dress, poise, class, and gave stupid, unintelligent answers to her questions. sooo disappointed!



  13. 13

    Good for her…she is really pretty…



  14. 14

    she really is beautiful.

    so nice not to have another blonde bimbo. and I am a blonde, although not a bimbo.



  15. 15

    One word; beauty….time for some variety….finally



  16. 16

    Re: loveusa

    Right on!



  17. 17

    Re: April 20th – Yep, better than those blonde bimbos like Prajean, Go Middle East, we are the most beautiful women in the world beside Italian and Spanish women.



  18. 18

    She's beautiful.



  19. 19

    The only reason she won is 1.Its PC hello she an Arab 2. Miss Okie's answer about the Arizona law
    This woman sounded like a idiot ,complete fool ,she lacks grace ,oh and she is a whore ,tripped ,and oh she is a whore .
    Lets see if the do the right thing by taking her crown and giving it to the Rightful winner .MISS OKLAHOMA ;) But it will be harder to that is away simply b/c she is an Arab



  20. 20

    SICKENING. Good fucking grief. SICKENING.

  21. Lear says – reply to this


    21

    Kind of sad that we're crowning foreigners in the Miss USA pageant. So much for Miss USA……..Can we send our people overseas to get crowned in their pageants?



  22. 22

    Just so you know.. All Lebanese people aren't arabs! But congratulations to her!



  23. 23

    I wonder what your attitude would be when you realize that Arab women and men don't believe in gay rights either. Will you be changing your tune then?



  24. 24

    wow, pretzel, you must not have paid much attention to the media coverage following the event — she supports Arizona's immigration law, as a supporter of states' rights — she's also against illegal immigration



  25. 25

    she's beautiful! she deserved to win. besides, miss usa can't always be blonde and blue eyes. being different makes you beautiful.



  26. 26

    Does any country other than the US even care about beauty pageants? Shallow and outdated, they provide empty entertainment to egomaniacs like Trump.



  27. 27

    I thought it was interesting she has an open bite and lower tongue posture.



  28. 28

    She only won because the Miss USA organizers are trying to make a political statement about "multiculturalism".

    Do not buy into the hype. A good all American woman could have easily won the same way. Tons of beautiful women were on stage but Trump had to make his political statement and appease other nationalities especially now with the Middle East issues!!



  29. 29

    Re: MonaLisa123 – "She's ugly"..? Really? Compared to who - YOU!
    Well DAMN! You must be super gifted in the genetic department.



  30. 30

    Is she muslim? Because if she is she may be stoned and cause earthquakes for walking around in a bikini.



  31. 31

    Re: alemeh2 – glad you think so highly of yourself…..meanwhile, I'll stick to my opinion of myself based on me, not my nationality…….



  32. 32

    Really, Perez likes her and she supports the immigration law in Arizona? I say good for her, a legal immagrant speaking out against illegals, I think more legal immagrants should do the same!



  33. 33

    Re: Lear – @ 21- yeah, i thought the same thing when we got our most recent president……..



  34. 34

    Re: alemeh2 – Yep, because you've been everywhere in the world and have seen every woman in the world as well, correct?



  35. 35

    No fuckin' way this tacky foreign broad should've won!!! She is not a good representation for the United States of America.



  36. 36

    Re: loveusa – Agreed. Ppl like that need to keep their outdated opinions to themselves.



  37. 37

    pretty but it shouldnt be 'news' really should it? its a bit backwardsRe: Chibey – way to stereotype a whole group of people. get a grip, love



  38. 38

    It's still a stupid beauty pageant.



  39. 39

    Re: alemeh2
    Fail bitch.



  40. 40

    america go forward soon obamarabia



  41. 41

    hopefully she won't blow anything up during her reign



  42. 42

    I hate to put a damper on this woman's historic win, but the internet is already abuzz with claims that she and her relatives support Hezbollah.

    Just sayin'.



  43. 43

    the pageants are all based on looks :/



  44. 44

    i hope she is a LEGAL immigrant…if so, then more power to her



  45. 45

    shes beautiful but other than that i am not happy that she won……i mean seriously?!!!



  46. 46

    WOW- Who cares what her heritage is. Shes gorgeous and classy-great pick!!



  47. 47

    "…an immigrant from Lebanon, was crowned Miss USA last night."

    from Lebanon?

    "they took our jobs!"



  48. 48

    An immigrant………suck on that, you Arizona hicks….

  49. elo says – reply to this


    49

    Never like politically motivated manipulations much myself.



  50. 50

    Re: bbtaddpole – Not all muslims cover their whole body up..bosnians and albanians are muslims (bosnia and albania are in europe) and you can never tell because they don't cover up.So stop being soo naive and do some research when you try to be "smart" because you just end up looking like an idiot.



  51. 51

    This loser is from the Islamic State of Michigan and is supporter of the terrorist group Hezbollah and a resident of Dearbornistan. That is NOTHING to be proud about.



  52. 52

    i love her



  53. 53

    Yes, outstanding! Gotta love having a woman representing this country who believes that birth control is a controlled substance.



  54. 54

    She is beautiful and also an American .



  55. 55

    Yay Miss Michigan takes it. :) Although, it is odd she wasn't even born in the US…..welp at least she isn't illegal or anything.



  56. 56

    She has got to be the ugliest Miss USA winner I have ever seen.



  57. 57

    AS usual americans cannot lose, shame on you.

    Yes, I travel the world for my job and I have seen beautiful women everywhere and to the person that said that Arab women do not age well, let me say this, americans women get fat the second they get married and knocked up, they do not care about their body anymore and if they do, they resort to plastic surgery, blech.

    Re: alemeh2 – I have to agree with you there. Arab and Mediterranean women are often gorgeous. I'm glad I took after my Italian mama



  59. 59

    All of Lebanon is proud of you today, Rima! MABROUK!



  60. 60

    I went to highschool w her… i remmeber bak in d day … good for her. =)



  61. 61

    Re: xxcocoxx – couldn't have said it better myself!



  62. 62

    She's so graceful on her STRIPPER VIDEO…



  63. 63

    i bet she's verrrrry hairy.



  64. 64

    Re: alemeh2

    Bitch please, you are not the most beautiful women in the world. There are beautiful women in all parts of the world. You are the most funky women if yyou really must know, some of you need to learn to douche and take a bath every once in a while



  65. 65

    :)

    hell yes, shes reppin my race



  66. 66

    Re: alemeh2 – ]

    YOu seem to sterotype americans alot. If you have that much against american, then take your ass back to where ever youc ame from. Im sick of immigrants commig here thinking they are better than americans. This is not your country in the first place and it would matter to me if you all get sent back to where ever the fuck you came from



  67. 67

    she looks like one of the kardashians.



  68. 68

    Why can't she just be an American? Why Arab-American? All of us Americans or our ancestors came from another country at some point in the past but if you're living here what's wrong with just saying you're a proud American? People come here and take the goods and then hyphenate where their people are from as if American isn't enough. Just come here and become an American…



  69. 69

    Re: alemeh2 – No you're not…



  70. 70

    Re: erikasjammin – no it doesn't.



  71. 71

    Re: bbtaddpole – I don't know if she is Muslim, but just to let you know that Lebanon is the only middle eastern country in which citizens are about half Muslim and have Christian.



  72. 72

    Yes, it's fantastic about Rima becoming Miss USA.
    Afterall, we have a Muslim president, and now, a Muslim Miss USA.
    Tomorrow, Obama will cancel Saturday and Sundays and make Friday the new one day off instead of two. YIPEEEE



  73. 73

    Makes me Sick - GOD BLESS AMERICA!!!!!!!! Shouldn't Miss USA come from the good old USA?????????



  74. 74

    You do know she has relatives that are in terrorist organizations and she herself supports them right? And they hate gays even more than you do Perez.



  75. 75

    Really?! She called an OB-G-Y-N a OB jen…wtf is an ob jen? Her answer regarding birth control was beyond pathetic and she sounded like a complete moron! She was clearly un-deserved of the title and win however its the politics behind the show that caused her win.



  76. 76

    Re: Chibey – I'm Arab and i believe in gay rights, my male cousin is gay and i definitely believe he should have the same opportunities that i have.



  77. 77

    BTW SHE'S THE SECOND LEBANESE-AMERICAN TO BE CROWNED USA
    IN 1983 JULIE HAYEK WAS CROWNED MISS USA

    FFFFFFFFFFFFFYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYIIIIIIIIIIIIIII



  78. 78

    Re: yousuckatblogging – Do not confuse us with french women, using words like bitch shows how boor you are but then again with a name like that, no wonder.

    Salam and Ciao



  79. 79

    Re: yousuckatblogging – this is my country like it's yours, this country was BUILD with immigrants and I am sure you are one as well.

    I do not single out americans women per se, I am just responding to your stupidity, if you do not like it, fine with me, I do not care, now move on and go play somewhere else, we adults are trying to have a discussions here and kids like you are not allowed.



  80. 80

    Re: KevinK – SAys who? Fox news and the web?



  81. 81

    If they ain't from the USA, then they shouldn't be crowned it…



  82. 82

    STUPID ANSWER TO THE QUESTION ABOUT BIRTH CONTROL. UGLY DRESS. TRIPPED. WHY AGAIN DID THIS WOMAN WIN? GOOFY LOOKING.



  83. 83

    There is a photo of her "dancing" on a stripper pole. So sad that's she has embraced the lowest parts of American culture.



  84. 84

    Re: April 20th – you're ignorant — drinkin' the palinade



  85. 85

    I'm lucky to be from Michigan, because of her. Very Special girl representing a crap-tastic state!
    She's beautiful!



  86. 86

    Re: Lear – foreigners? so being white represents all america? go fuck yourself



  87. 87

    Re: luvstotango – whats wrong with that? do you really expect every american to be christian?



  88. 88

    They should have asked WRONGFUL WINNER the following:

    Do you agree that Xmas Day Crotch Bomber, Times Square Bomber, & Ft Hood Terrorist should be Executed for Treason, etc?

    Guess she gets a pass from the LIBERAL HOLLYWEIRD JUDGES



  89. 89

    Im Arab, I support Gay rights AND I wear bikini's (and no my parents nor my 'community' dont want to stone me)… Some people can really fit the stereotype of the ignorant American so well *sighs*



  90. 90

    Her religion is Chaldean, which is Catholic not Muslim.



  91. 91

    Re: Melley – Hi Melley, no I don't expect every American to be Christian…just the President of the United States.
    -
    It's kind of written down somewhere, that the president has to be born in America. At one time I would easily have included Jews to be eligible as well…but most Jews in America pray to Liberalism now. We all can now see clearly why that law is on the books.
    -
    The catastrophy of Obama is evident and why the Dems are going to be kicked to the curb in the next two or three elections.
    Sorry for sounding like an American instead of a Commie-loving Muslim that hates whitey like Obama does.
    -
    Those that fail to understand history are doomed to be liberals.



  92. 92

    What about the "pole dancing" / stripping photos that are all over the internet? Classless. Horrible role model for young women or women as a whole. she looks like a whore. this photo is worse than Carrie P's … at least Carrie's were for art or ads. This is just dirty.



  93. 93

    LEBANESE PEOPLE ARE NOT ARABS! :@ we're not arabs or arabians or anything else.. we come from Phoenician origin and thats it.. no offence to any arabs,, have nothing against them but we're not arabs.



  94. 94

    Re: locototo – Educate me. I thought people from Lebanon were either Christian or Muslim. Aren't Muslims Arabs?



  95. 95

    Re: locototo – You are right. All the wonderful Lebanese people I have met in the Middle East are Christians and want only peace.
    -
    I would love to have you over for a wonderful Lebanese dinner. I miss the Lamb Shwarmas on the street corner most of all! We used to go to Beirut every two months for visas from Saudi Arabia and have wonderful memories at the Phoencia Hotel right on the water. Those were good times.



  96. 96

    Re: Indigo – not all lebanese are muslim or christian or islamic!! most of the lebanese people are catholic!!! Unless you go to the far northern part of teh south part of lebanon is where you'll find most muslims. I'm a happy catholic with my heritage of lebanese.

    and to KevinK aren't you an idiot!!! not everyone follows what you're saying. not everyone in the middle east are like that group of people. and by the way my also asian because the middle east is not it's own cotinent. so why don't you just take back what you said and shut it!

    also this is perezhilton.com so stop hating!



  97. 97

    Wow I am so sad to be reading all these hateful comments. What bothers me more is how the media keeps saying Arab-American. The girl is an American citizen for God's sake. She seems really smart, together and very attractive. She will represent the U.S in the best way possible. At least people outside this country will stop expecting some dumb, uncultured bimbo! I am actually Lebanese and yes I am also both Muslim and Christian. My family is very open and yes we can wear bikinis.

    Not all Muslims are Arabs! There are even Lebanese Jews who live in Brazil.

    Oh and about Arabian (never ever been referred to that way but that is okay I will assume you never got an education or traveled beyond the boarders of your city) women becoming fugly as they age. That is the stupidest comment I have ever heard. Aren't anglo women the ones who start to wrinkle by age 30 from the sun? Nevertheless those are all stupid comments generalizing a whole group like that.

    Congrats girl - we are all so proud of you even though you look like all my Lebanese cousins back home :)



  98. 98

    Re: luvstotango – Are you American or Lebanese? Yes that is a great hotel…super fancy.



  99. 99

    Re: luvstotango
    Whenever I read the comments concerning your current President, it never ceases to amaze me when I read things like "Sorry for sounding like an American instead of a Commie-loving Muslim that hates whitey like Obama does…". Seriously? Clearly this is just one of many comments (made by plenty of others, not just yourself) that makes me wonder if you remember the EMBARRASSMENT of a president who preceded Mr. Obama? If he wasn't the dumbest leader..LOL! Such a way with words, as well. What sorts of things did you come up with to defend him on the many occasions when HE was less than stellar? Just curious. Also, am I to conclude that you think communism and Islam = hatred of white people? Is it even a fact that Obama is a full-blown Muslim? I don't know, he's your President, you tell me. Could you and so many others who post hateful comments of their OWN president actually just be fuming still over the fact that you now have a black president and for some crazy reason you feel this threatens your very being as a white person? Do you really give Obama that much power - to think he is the end all, be all of your existence? Did mommy and daddy instil these fears in you? Don't worry it won't happen, it's just a myth. I mean, if that last president of yours didn't make the US a laughing stock…oh wait, never mind that! Lol!



  100. 100

    ….continued. In all seriousness, Bush - and even Clinton, as I am sure you know, did some amazingly stupid and detrimental things as your presidents, so really, have you ever stopped to ask yourself why you hate Obama SO much? Other than your not being as comfortable with having a non white president complex. Again, just curious.

    Thanks in advance
