EXCLUSIVE

0115-steve-colombia-01Steve Harvey has done an interview with Miss Colombia, begging forgiveness ... and we've learned the waterworks were turned on in a big, big way -- and we're not talking her. 

Our sources say ... an NBC producer brokered the deal in which Ariadna Gutierrez appeared on Harvey's talk show and did a segment for "Today," as well as Telemundo ... all NBC-owned properties.

Our sources say Harvey told Ariadna he's apologized to everyone, but a face-to-face with her was the most meaningful. "He sobbed and sobbed," our sources say.

Harvey also had the winner, Miss Philippines, on the show but we're told she was never on the same stage as Ariadna.

Right after Steve's show, filmed in Chicago, Natalie Morales from "Today," interviewed Ariadna, followed by an anchor from Telemundo.

Today, Ariadna is shooting a cover for  People Espanol. 

As one source said, "Ariadna thought having the crown taken away was the worst day of her life. She now realizes it was the best day," adding, 'She's making a fortune!"

Miss Colombia may have lost her crown, but companies pitching burgers and beers want to re-crown her and make her super famous and wealthy.

Sources connected with the scorned Miss Universe contestant tell TMZ, a high-powered manager -- who reps Sofia Vergara -- is working on her behalf and is in talks with Burger King for a fantastic commercial. Miss Colombia would star in a kids' meal spot where everyone keeps their crown.

And we're told the manager -- Luis Balaguer -- is also talking to Corona about a commercial featuring Ariadna Gutierrez on the beach with a cold one. The hook -- "corona" is "crown" in Spanish.

And there's more ... we're told Ariadna's dream is to become a Victoria's Secret angel, and our sources say Balaguer was in touch with the company on Tuesday.

BTW ... we're told Ariadna was enraged at both the Miss Universe pageant and Steve Harvey after the screw-up and hasn't returned a single call to either. Fact is, it's the best thing that could have happened to her.

Miss Colombia Choose Your Sex Partner And Make a Million

1222_VIVID_MISS_COLOMBIA_LAUNCH-3

Miss Colombia could become the biggest thing in beauty pageants since Vanessa Williams ... if a porn king has his way. 

Vivid honcho Steve Hirsch fired off a letter to Ariadna Gutierrez Tuesday offering up $1 million. He made his case with another famous pageant queen, writing, "The only name that most people remember is Vanessa Williams," adding the reason for her rise to fame was nude pics in Penthouse.

Hirsch goes on with his pitch ... "Celebrity sex tapes we have distributed have enhanced the careers of stars such as Kim Kardashian, Kendra Wilkinson, Pamela Anderson and many others."

And Hirsch is willing to give Ariadna wide berth, saying, "You will pick your partners, the type of sex you want to have and how many movies you ultimately appear in." 

And Hirsch put a cherry on top by saying he would "commission the making of the first Vivid Girl Crown for you and we believe it will be grander than anything Miss Philippines will ever wear."

EXCLUSIVE

1221_miss_colombia_miss_philipeans_facebook-2Miss Universe now has a raging war on its hands ... between Latina contestants and Miss Philippines.

Sources who were backstage at Sunday's pageant tell TMZ, after Steve Harvey throned and quickly de-throned Miss Colombia ... Miss Puerto Rico, Miss Costa Rica, Miss Mexico and other Latina contestants swarmed Miss Colombia to console her.

The women were NOT blaming Steve Harvey, whom they said was gracious. They were squarely and tearfully blaming Miss Philippines for the embarrassment, although no one could coherently explain why the snafu was her fault.

Some of the Latina contestants were grousing backstage ... Miss Philippines did not deserve the crown. We're told most of them snubbed the winner, not congratulating her on the victory.

We're told there has been a fierce competition between Colombia and the Philippines in the pageant's history, and it certainly reared its head Sunday night.

Miss Universe Colombian Official Says Pageant Really Screwed Our Girl Up

EXCLUSIVE

1221-miss-universe-crown-gettyMiss Colombia will suffer not only disappontment as a result of Steve Harvey's blunder, but it is "something that can harm her" ... so says the country's Counsul General to New York.

Maria Isabel Nieto tells TMZ the snafu was extremely painful for Miss Colombia and could cause long-term issues. Nieto notes that physically taking the the crown from her will likely cause psychological trauma.

1221-sub-vega-nieto-ap-01The Counsul General thinks Donald Trump is right on the money ... Miss Philippines and Miss Colombia should share the crown.

Failing that, Nieto thinks pageant officials should give Miss Colombia a more expanded role in the coming year. As she put it, all the first runner up does is wait, and that's not fair. 

The President of Colombia even weighed in saying, "I was watching Miss Universe with my family and we even celebrated when we heard Colombia was going to be Miss Universe for the second year in a row. Miss Colombia was marvelous and spectacular. It was a letdown when the host said he made a mistake. I don’t believe this has ever happened in the history of Miss Universe. For me, Miss Colombia is Miss Universe and will continue to be Miss Universe. They placed the crown on her, there is a photo and for me as a Colombian she will continue to be Miss Universe."
