What did 2007 Miss Nevada Katie Rees — pictured here — do to lose her crown and yet be given no second chance, unlike Miss USA Tara Conner? Well, she was partying a bit too much and was captured on camera. What she did could be described but the photos are not X-rated, but R-rated though they’re not included here.
Why would she, or any young girl, do this? In this 2007 Inside Edition interview with Deborah Norville, Rees explains what was on her mind:
Who is Katie Rees? According to Wikipedia…
Katie Rees (born 11 August 1984 in St Petersburg, Florida) is a former American beauty queen who has held the Miss Nevada USA title. She was to compete in the Miss USA 2007 pageant but was dethroned in December 2006 following the release of pictures of her doing inappropriate things at a Florida nightclub three years prior.
Rees won the Miss Nevada USA 2007 title in a state pageant held in Las Vegas on 8 October 2006; it was her first attempt at this title. Rees was crowned by outgoing titleholder Lauren Scyphers. Her “sister” titleholder, Miss Nevada Teen USA 2007, was Danielle Hashimoto.
On 20 December 2006, allegations of Rees exhibiting raunchy behaviour in a Florida nightclub were made, and several photographs of Rees doing inappropriate things were released to the media. This followed a scandal involving Miss USA 2006 Tara Conner, in which news reports claimed Conner had been drinking underage; Conner was allowed to retain her title.
On 21 December 2006, Rees was stripped of her crown by the Miss Universe Organization, with the approval of pageant co-owner Donald Trump. She was succeeded by pageant first runner-up Helen Salas, who will represent Nevada in the Miss USA 2007 pageant in March.
