Circus Hot Over Miss Nevada's Orgasm Contest

2/13/2007 7:02 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Jeff Beacher, Katie ReesThe former Miss Nevada is smack in the middle of another sexually charged controversy ... and this one could reach its climax in court.

TMZ has obtained a cease and desist letter from Cirque du Soleil, sent to "Beacher's Madhouse" host Jeff Beacher at the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas. The letter asks him to halt production on the "orgasmic" part of his variety show, hosted by former Miss Nevada Katie Reese, because it infringes on Cirque's trademarked name.

Cirque believes that Beacher has been advertising the orgasm contest as a "Cirque du Soleil" event in several online publications. Beacher insists that the name was used in blogs by mistake, and that it was never part of his show.

The letter asks Hard Rock to stop advertising the show on their website, and "post a prominent" retraction on websites where it appeared. Oddly, the Hard Rock never used the name on their site.

TMZ spoke to Beacher, who told us, "I have no intention, and have never even thought about calling my orgasm contest the Cirque du Soleil Contest. I'm calling it exactly what it is; an Orgasm Contest." Beacher's attorney, Mike Heller, told us "Mr. Beacher appreciates Cirque du Soleil and would never use their name in vain. We ask for a total retraction and apology from Cirque du Soliel."

I want EVERYONE to get this clear.

SHE IS NOT MISS NEVADA. SHE CAN NEVER USE THAT TITLE AGAIN. SOMEONE ELSE HOLDS THE TITLE. SHE WAS DETHRONED.

TMZ and others who STILL refer to her as MISS NEVADA are idiots. So if you want to look stupid keep on calling her Miss Nevada. She isn't.

my opinion    

She should ban anyone from using that photo. I can't believe how masculine her facial features are. Count her as one really ugly woman in a few years.

She is in my book, I think what they did by dethronig her was wrong. It goes to show that celebs can't be normal people without being scrutinized.

I think that if we can call a former president by his title, she deserves the same.
