Former Miss USA Rima Fakih Arrested On Drink Driving Charge

Former Miss USA Rima Fakih was arrested in Highland Park for suspicion of drunken driving early Saturday morning, her attorney said.

“Unfortunately she was,” Doraid Elder said late Saturday.

He said he had been retained that night and had few details about the arrest but said Fakih’s record “has not a single blemish” and she was “very saddened and very apologetic for the situation that she is in right now.”

Highland Park police would not confirm the arrest, saying inquiries would be answered Monday by the chief or deputy chief.

Elder repeatedly referred to the charge as “allegations,” but also said “this shouldn’t be something that defines who she is,” adding it was “poor judgment” on her part.

About 5 p.m. Saturday, Fakih tweeted from her @Official%Rima Twitter account: “Let’s clear things up now.... I’m NOT in Michigan and I’m NOT in jail! Wrong Fakih.”

The tweet also appeared on Fakih’s Facebook page. The message was deleted from both accounts late Saturday.

In May 2010, Fakih, of Dearborn, won the Miss USA Pageant, becoming the first Miss Michigan to win the title since 1993 and the first Arab American to win the pageant. Fakih competed for Miss Universe later that year but lost.

Her reign ended June 19, but, days earlier, Miss Universe Organization President Paula Shugart told the Fox News’ Fox411 entertainment blog that Fakih didn’t follow pageant protocol, returning home at 4 a.m. one morning.

Soon after Shugart’s statement, Fakih told the Free Press: “It’s not a big deal. I’m not a party animal; I took my job as Miss USA very seriously..… Sometimes, of course, I want to let it all go. Even though I’m a beauty queen, you’re also an unofficial ambassador, and there’s a lot of pressure.”

Dixie Carter Comments On WWE, TNA Changing with the Times & More

As Hulk Hogan’s boss, Dixie Carter isn’t nearly as recognizable on the streets as one of the world’s most celebrated professional wrestlers. But she, after all, is the one calling the shots.

Carter is president of Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (TNA), the second-largest professional wrestling company in the world, based in Nashville.

Connecticut-based World Wresting Entertainment, the largest company, acquired its competitors World Championship Wrestling (WCW) and Extreme Championship Wrestling (ECW) in 2001, leaving TNA as the bolder and edgier wrestling alternative.

TNA’s premier program, Impact Wrestling, is filmed in Orlando, Fla., and fills the 9 p.m. Thursday night slot on the Spike cable channel. It is broadcast in 100 countries and reaches5 million viewers weekly around the globe, according to the company.

Carter, 47, lives in Nashville with her husband and two children, both of whom attend private school.

“Do I look like I’m a professional wrestling executive?” she asked.

Carter was raised in Dallas, and her father is president of Dallas-based Panda Energy International, an independent electricity company that runs power plants across the country.

Instead of taking a career in the energy industry, though, Carter chose to make her mark on professional wrestling — in sports, let’s say.

“If I walk away at the end of my career, I hope people will say, ‘Well, at least she tried to do things differently,’ ” Carter said. “ ‘At least she tried to change the way wrestling is perceived.’ ”

Carter spoke with Tennessean reporter Bobby Allyn recently about the marketing and business of professional wrestling and the TV market to which it appeals.

What has kept professional wrestling relevant through the years?

Wrestling has been around for centuries. It encompasses action-drama, good guy/bad guy, and good and evil. When you combine all of that with some of the best wrestlers in the world, it’s a recipe for success.

And has how TNA changed with the times?

We’re not just a wrestling company anymore. We do our own booking. We do our own promotion and public relations. We’re a licensing company. We have toys, Halloween costumes, trading cards. We make our own music. A
