'I didn't do anything wrong,' she says about her involvement in Stripper 101, which she explains as a competition held to teach women 'how to dance and feel sexy'.

Soon after snatching 2010 Miss USA title, Rima Fakih's glorious moment has been ruined with the outing of her pictures doing pole dance. Now, the subject of the controversy has spoken up to various media to address the issue and clear her name. She told People, "I was just being silly and jumping up and there were a few pictures exchanged. I know it looks really negative but it's not really what you've seen. I didn't do anything wrong."

On Wednesday, May 19, she also appeared on "Live with Regis and Kelly" where she was also asked about the same topic. "It was actually an event held by one of my friends who's a DJ," the 24-year-old girl explained, before detailing "It's a promotional event they do every year called Stripper 101, and they bring together all these women who are the 95th caller and they teach them how to dance and feel sexy."

Rima also affirmed that she did not do a striptease, saying to Joy Behar of HLN, "Everyone took them as if I was stripping, which to be honest with you was just a competition." Moreover, the Michigan resident was willing to explain her pose in one particular shot, stating "To be extra funny, because I'm known to be silly, I put money in my bra."
