Ex-Miss USA Rima Fakih Scandal

Schooled by Former Beauty Queens

1/25/2012 12:20 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Rima Fakih
Former Miss USA, and current DUI defendant, Rima Fakih is picking up some crisis management tips from two of her beauty queen sisters ... one of whom is no stranger to controversy. 

Fakih was arrested back on December 3 for driving under the influence. Cops said Fakih's blood alcohol level was more than twice the legal limit.

Miss USA 2006 Tara Conner -- who almost lost her crown over "inappropriate behavior" and allegations of drug use -- tells us she reached out to Fakih because, "I know how horrible it feels to have the media air your dirty laundry and it is important to have a support system."

Fakih also got a call from Miss USA 1995 Shanna Moakler who says, "I told Rima the transition to life after the crown can be tough, but we’re a sisterhood and we help each other out."

Rima, Tara, and Shanna are meeting up this weekend in Las Vegas for the Miss Nevada USA pageant. To be a fly on that wall ...

"we’re a sisterhood and we help each other out."

What a total moron! She must have forgotten that she hates contestants with different beliefs than her. Those 3 are more like the lowlife slut pack.

Rima:

Let me tell you that listening to Shanna Moakler is the biggest mistake anyone could possibily make! Shanna Moakler is an idiot who has tons of dirt herself so asking her for advise will only get you more troubles!

Right...so Shanna's down with the DUI but not with someone who has different beliefs from her? Some sister.
