Katie Ress, the 22-year old former Miss Nevada USA who was stripped of her crown when party pictures of her hit the internet of which she was stripping off her jeans to show her thong said these were “hurtful and embarassing times”. The pictures were from an “isolated incident from my teenage years” that she considers “one night of poor judgment.”

Late Thursday,21-Dec-2006, Rees was dethroned. “Katie Rees has been relieved of her duties as Miss Nevada USA 2007,” said Paula M. Shugart, president of the Miss Universe Organization, which owns the Miss USA pageant, according to the Associated Press.

“The pictures were disgusting,” Miss USA co-owner Donald Trump told Larry King on CNN Thursday night. “These pictures were pretty far out there and that is not representative of Miss USA. We had no choice but to terminate her.”

It seems Katie was doing the same underage partying Miss USA Tara Conner did which almost costs her the crown. And now, Katie Rees wants a special Christmas present from Donald Trump: a second chance. I guess Donald Trump does not have much choice but to grant Katie the second chance since the billionaire granted the same wish to Tara Conner or else Donald will be known as the guy who practiced double standard when it comes to beauty queens.

Earlier, Donald Trump announced Miss USA Tara Conner, who had come under criticism amid rumors she had been frequenting bars while underage, will be allowed to keep her title. “I’ve always been a believer in second chances,” Trump, who owns the Miss Universe Organization with NBC said. Trump later said Conner would be entering rehab.

Conner won the title in April and has been living in New York. Recent media accounts of heavy drinking brought a storm of criticism since she was underage at the time. In a tear-choked voice, Conner said, “In no way did I think it would be possible for a second chance to be given to me.” Turning to Trump, she said, “You’ll never know what this means to me, and I swear I will not let you down.”

Through The Trump Organization, Donald owns Trump International Hotel & Tower, Trump Tower, 40 Wall Street, Trump Entertainment Resorts (Nasdaq : TRMP), Trump Taj Mahal, Trump Plaza, and Trump Marina. So, will Trump play his card as in “Apprentice” and say it firm on the face of Katie “I’m sorry Katie, but you’re FIRED !”
