Miss Nevada Replaced

12/22/2006 9:35 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Katie Rees, Miss Nevada USA, was officially replaced after scandalous photos of her hit the net.


The Miss Nevada USA website has been updated to show First Runner-up (and insanely tan) Helen Salas as the current crown-holder, with a statement saying that Rees "has been relieved of her duties."

The salaciously entertaining photos showed Rees exposing herself inside a Tampa Bar, Fletcher's Backstreet Grill, and outside of a nearby audio system company, Donovan Audio Designs Inc.

Donovan issued a statement on their website distancing themselves from the racy photos, saying, "There is no denying that these pictures were taken in front of our old office. However there were a number of pictures depicting a rather wild party as well. These pictures were not taken inside Donovan Audio's offices, nor did the parties occur there."

Though she's said little in a public forum, Rees' MySpace page holds a telling Bob Marley quote, "who are you to judge the life i live? i know i'm not perfect - and i don't have to be, but before you start pointing fingers, make sure your hands are clean."

Listen I know the new MIss Nevada Helen Salas and she is amazing. She has a college degree she comes from a firm CHRISTIAN HOME she loves to play with the little kids tag and colors with them and she has a very warm spirit she is highly educated and she is not into drugs or sex. So just because 2 or 3 girls are doing it all wrong does not mean that they are all the same. It seems that people today seem to generalize and include the whole population. So just because one girl makes a crazy thing it does not mean that the entire world is doing it.

WHO cares about these so-called "beauty queens?" They're nothing but a bunch of empty-headed dimwits who allow themselves to be treated as cattle for a worthless piece of tin and some "scholarship" money.

Who's really surprised, anyway? These "beauty queens" go on to accomplish stellar things such as getting married (to sugar daddies, of course) and having kids (like no one else can do those things).

Enough of these morons, already!

Donna, you must care... you're commenting on it.

Oh and TMZ, Helen's not "insanely tan," she's clearly Latino.

In recent weeks allegations concerning the reigning Miss USA and her behavior have been widely covered in the media. While I support entirely the efforts to help Miss USA with rehabilitation, I also support and believe in the rules of pageant organizations throughout the country. Almost all have made it clear to their titleholders their will be a zero-tolerance policy for any illegal behavior, or major violation of the rules and regulations of any candidate seeking the title. We believe pageants encourages contestants to be positive role models for our youth. We also encourage young women to become aware of the issues facing society and to become socially active in promoting causes that matter to them.
In my twenty-five plus years as a pageant director I can honestly say that the vast majority of these young women are well educated, balanced, and work in their communities and with youth in trying to make for a better society. They usually are among the best of the best. This week we are seeing the Miss USA Pageant air their dirty laundry for the world to see. Let's all keep in mind that over 3 million young women compete annually in pageants. If 3 or even 20 are having probems like we have seen let us deal with them, but let's not castigate an entire industry for the problems that a few have encountered.

I really don't care about the pics, but wasn't she 17 in the pic? Doesn't that mean she is underage? I know she doesn't look 17, but couldn't this be considered child porn? Just a question.

Donna who has the #4 comment is all wrong. The vast majority of young women who compete in Miss America, Miss USA and the thousands of other pageants are excellent role models. Most are college educated, involved in school activities, and contribute good to society. We are this week seeking the bottom of the barrel. Donna you are wrong. Why do I know this? I work with these young women on a daily basis. Well educated, well balanced and not at all like the ones portrayed this week in the media. Of course what else would you expect from the media? Don't buy into it. Some of the ones ( Maybe you included) are hairy armpitted women from the NOW who hate anything that is feminine.
