Miss USA Porn Star -- Hocking Dress for Twister Relief

5/27/2011 2:05 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Ex-beauty queen/porn star Kelli McCarty was so torn up over the recent tornado tragedy -- she decided to auction off her dearest possession ... the gown she wore the night she won the Miss USA title.

McCarty -- who was crowned Miss USA in 1991 -- tells TMZ, she grew up in a tornado-ravaged Kansas ... so the disaster hit her especially close to home.

McCarty claims she never planned to sell the dress -- but after hearing about the tornadoes she really wanted to help with relief efforts ... telling us, "if it can help someone rebuild their house, then it's worth it."

The dress is currently listed for $5,000 -- but so far, no bids. Kelli plans to donate all proceeds to the Salvation Army in Joplin, MO.

Big deal, donate money yourself. Typical of these famous people, they have others paying for something and then donate it, big deal. Then they try to look so good most of them have so much money and never help out they are greedy and selfish.

Some of you are just ignorant. Do you have anything you would sale and donate the money to any cause? Probably not, but you sure are fast to judge this person. Who the hell cares about her? It's the matter that she wants to help. Maybe she doesn't have 5 thousand dollars, but if she can get it out of the dress she is willing to donate that money. I don't see any of you saying you are donating anything so STFU.

??? TMZ, are all your writers idiots? This is at least the third time you've used the word HOCKING instead of hawking. Get a dictionary, please.

Yeah, right. $5,000 is a drop in the bucket...and that 1991 pre-owned dress isn't worth it. Just a publicity stunt. And she looks nothing like that picture...obviously from years of plastic surgery and a decadent lifestyle.

Tess seriously. Granted hawking means to sell and hocking is to pawn but really? Do you feel that much better about yourself by pointing that out? Pointing out the mistakes of another for no good reason just reveals more about your own insecurities. Oh no does this mean i am insecure too? LOL.

Tess...please take your own advise. There are several ways to use hock. And what is hawking? a scientist or bird, which do you want?

hock 3 (hk) Slang
tr.v. hocked, hock·ing, hocks
To pawn: hock a diamond ring.
n.
1. The state of being pawned: put the diamonds in hock.
2. The state of being in debt: thought we'd never get out of hock.

Big mistake canceling soaps. If there was a good soap on during The View, I would watch the soap.
