As we approach the Miss Universe competition on Monday, I thought it would be fun to revisit with what the current Miss USA, Rima Fakih, was doing leading up to the competition:
Miss USA Rima Fakih of Dearborn told the Free Press she is fasting from sunrise to sunset in accordance with Islamic tradition because it's the holy month of Ramadan even though she's busy preparing for Monday's Miss Universe contest in Las Vegas.
Fakih, the first Arab-American and Muslim to be crowned Miss USA, spoke to the Free Press today over the phone from Las Vegas, where she and beauties from around the world are prepping for Monday's Miss Universe Contest with a hectic schedule full of events and appearances.
Sin City and sultry photo sessions don't stop Miss USA from fasting for Ramadan
So hijabs off to Miss USA, Rima Fakih. Despite her gruelingly seductive schedule preparing for the Miss Universe competition on Monday night, Fakih doesn't let the dutiful doldrums get to the good Muslim girl in her.
Perhaps Las Vegas, body paint, and sexy semi-nude shoots don't exactly meet the traditional definition of devotion. But fasting for Ramadan from sunrise to sunset, according to Fakih, is not an option - it's an obligation.

Think of it as an open thread for entertaining and non political stuff - posts, images, etc. - that you like but were afraid to post on it at a "serious political Blog".
