Most people are shocked and offended by the photos of Miss USA working a stripper pole — but Sheila says Rima Fakih is setting a good example by ‘owning her body!’

When photos surfaced of newly crowned Miss USA Rima Fakih pole-dancing May 17, most Americans were outraged that she should be considered a role model. But Sheila Kelley, the creator of female-empowering strip workout S-Factor disagrees, and says that young women should actually look up to Miss USA because she is confident enough to own her body!

“Oh my god, I find the public’s fascination [with this issue] so infantile, I can’t even tell you,” the 45-year-old S-Factor guru tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively, explaining, “I think that the people who are criticizing her are fighting a losing battle. Women are not going to go back into the closet — it’s fun to express your sexuality.”

Rima, 23, competed in a radio station’s pole dancing contest in 2007 that was supposed to “teach girls how to dance and to feel sexy.” After the photos were leaked onto the Internet, women have been in an uproar, claiming Rima is setting a bad example for those that look up to her. Sheila disagrees, and says she’s proud to use the newly crowned pageant queen as an example for her nine-year-old daughter.

“Because of the pole dancing, she exemplifies a wholesome young woman of today,” Sheila says. “This is a message young women should get: it’s YOUR body. It goes against nature to not let it move and play. God, I love seeing a beautiful young woman that confident.”

In fact, Sheila wants HollywoodLife.com to extend a special offer to Rima. “I’m so excited for her I can’t stand it. Please tell Rima I want to offer her a free intro to come take a class with me!”

Judging from Rima’s pictures — we bet she’d be a natural!

i’m just hoping one day that america will level out and americans’ sexuality will do the same. the only way to explain all of this whorey over the top sexuality is that children aren’t exposed to normal healthy ways to be sexual? right? it’s either stripper or librarian, and nothing in between. i don’t know- but i just see all these young girls in such WHOREY poses and wonder what has brought all this out. i don’t mind someone owning their body, but it’s not sexy to be so vulgar. it’s much more sexy to be coy. standing spread eagle on a stage where everyone can see your cooch, essentially, is just trashy. that anyone could say this is empowered is discouraging to this one woman trying to raise a young girl with shots like this floating around. is my daughter doomed to behave like this and be branded a whore and slut (whether she is or not) for such trashy behavior? i sure hope i do better than some of these other parents. wish me luck.
