Miss USA’s Other Crown

When Miss Michigan, Rima Fakih, was crowned Pride of the Donald (Miss USA 2010) May 16 at Planet Hollywood, it wasn’t Fakih’s first win. Turns out she previously won a slightly less prestigious contest in 2007 at Detroit radio station WKQI: Mojo in the Morning’s Stripper 101.

We’re guessing she didn’t list “pole dancing” on her Miss USA application under “special talents.”

The pageant hasn’t yet demanded Fakih return her new tiara (as of press time), but we’re thinking this won’t just blow over. Which reminds us, when it comes to pageant queens, Donald Trump is a fan of second chances. Right, Tara Conner? Blow over, indeed.

The Losers (PG-13)

Hot on the trail of Kick-Ass’s experiment in vacant violence, The Losers is equally wrongheaded. A team of U.S. Special Forces, led by Jeffrey Dean Morgan as Clay, gets double-crossed and then joins up with a mercenary named Aisha (Zoe Saldana) who insists they seek revenge against CIA baddie Max (Jason Patric). The film’s politics, like this entire effort, are sketchy. Each character seems to have sauntered in from a different movie.
