A pageant queen going down in flames due to scandalous circumstances? Nothing new there. It all started in 1984, of course, when Miss America Vanessa Williams —the first black winner, ever— was ousted after Penthouse sweetly published lesbionic pics from her starving actress days. And then there was Miss USA 2006 Tara Conner, whose rampant drug use and sexed-up party pics were exposed online. Tragic, but at least they were adults. Today, the New York Daily News reports that Miss Delaware Teen USA Melissa King gave up her crown after a porn video surfaced allegedly starring the 18 year-old. There’s no proof it’s King, but the girl does look and sound a lot like her.
There’s more. Before the hardcore sex kicks off in the circa-June 2012 video, the girl reveals her favorite sex position…and then says that she turned 18 two months before (which would’ve been King’s birthday). Off-camera, she actually mentions needing money for pageants.
The story is tragic in and of itself, the idea of a high school student desperate enough to resort to pornography. But even worse is the antiquated pageant system that holds women up to unrealistic Disney Princess/Barbie goddess standards —all tarted up in spray-tans and silicone, but creepily drained of any real sexuality or humanity— and then ruins their lives if the veneer slips. Sure, Trump let Conner keep her crown (contingent upon a stint in rehab), but her rep was ruined and the sullied blonde slid into obscurity. If it’s really King in the porno, here’s hoping the teen gets the help she needs. In the meantime, her runner-up, Hailey Lawler, will be rocking the Miss Delaware Teen USA crown now. Hurrah for her.

Sally Humphreys and Ronnie Wood on their wedding day
Splash News Online
Talk about a rockin’ wedding!
Rolling Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood tied the knot with his theater producer fiancée Sally Humphreys in a private ceremony Friday in London, according to a report in the U.K.’s Sun, which also published photos of the bride and groom on their happy day.
Wood, 65, and Humphreys, 34, announced their engagement in October, just six months after they began dating.
According to the reports out of the U.K., the rocker wore pink socks and a navy suit, and the bride wore her mother’s wedding dress.
The low-key ceremony took place in the eighth floor penthouse in London’s Dorchester Hotel.
Guests at the wedding included Rod Stewart and wife Penny Lancaster and Paul McCartney and his wife Nancy Shevell.
This is the third marriage for Wood, who just played shows with the Stones in the United States as part of their 50 and Counting tour.

Cameron Diaz HATES Rosie O’Donnell

CAMERON Diaz is at war with Rosie O’Donnell.
The Gambit actress has beef with the TV star after Rosie stole her dream home.
Cameron had her heart set on a penthouse condo in Manhattan’s trendy West Village, but Rosie plucked the place right out from under her nose for a whopping $8 million.
“Before Cam was able to dot the i’s and cross the t’s on a contract, Rosie swooped in with a higher offer,” a source told American tabloid the National Enquirer.
“Rosie knew Cam had fallen in love with the place and was all set to buy it, so I’d call what she did a greedy grab.
“This was to be Cam’s DREAM home, and she blames Rosie for wrecking her plans to buy it.
“Cam is beside herself, and she’s been bad-mouthing Rosie to anyone who’ll listen. She’s calling Rosie a sneaky, fat, washed-up has-been who intentionally screwed her over because she’s jealous of her good looks and success.”
