Rima Fakih, who made history in 2010 by becoming the first Arab-American to win Donald Trump's Miss USA pageant, recently reached a plea deal in her DUI case and faces a maximum sentence of about three months in jail.

The 26-year-old former beauty queen was arrested in December 2011 after police pulled her over in Highland Park, Michigan. They said she was driving 60 mph in a 30 mph zone and weaving in and out of traffic and that officers found an open bottle of champagne behind the driver's seat of her Jaguar. She failed two breath tests, which showed her blood alcohol content to be 0.19 and 0.20 percent - above the legal limit of 0.08.

Transsexual contestant Jenna Talackova can compete in a preliminary Miss Universe pageant in her native Canada "if she wants to," owner Donald Trump has clarified, following her disqualification and suggested reinstatement, adding that he "couldn't care less" whether or not she decides to return.

The 23-year-old Vancouver native was axed as a Miss Universe Canada finalist last month, a move that spurred an online backlash and accusations of discrimination. Organizers said she was "dishonest" by failing to disclose she had been born male. On Monday, they said she could compete after all if she "meets the legal gender recognition requirements of Canada and the standards established by other international competitions."

The Beauties of Canada, which hosts the national contest that selects a candidate for Donald Trump's international Miss Universe competition, listed several conditions for the Vancouver resident's reinstatement, but has not clarified whether or not she meets them.

The ousting of the 23-year-old Vancouver resident was announced on Friday and spurred an online petition that is calling on the Miss Universe Organization, owned by Donald Trump, to reverse its decision. Talackova was among the Beauties of Canada's 65 finalists competing for the chance to represent the country in the international Miss Universe pageant.
