Smith took the crown on Monday night at the River Spirit Casino Resort in Tulsa, Oklahoma. She was presented with the crown by Miss USA 2020 Asya Branch, and will be making her way straight to Israel to compete at the Miss Universe pageant on December 12.

The 23-year-old works full-time as a reporter and said being a journalist is “a role I take very seriously.” During the pageant’s question and answer round, she spoke about subjects including honesty and sustainability, revealing that her “most important core value” was honesty.

“We’ve got to look at it from a macro and also a micro level,” Smith said, encouraging businesses to be more environmentally conscious. “So at the macro level, companies need to switch to green energy — I think that’s something we can all agree on.”

She continued, “But then, at the micro level, we all know how to reduce, reuse, and recycle, and those are all things we can implement in our daily life.”

While winning Miss USA is usually a feat that follows years and years of dedication to pageants, Elle Smith actually competed in her very first pageant just six months ago.

She got her first taste of the Miss USA stage on Sunday night during the State Costume Contest. Smith dressed as a jockey to honor the Kentucky Derby, with the blue-and-white outfit also paying tribute to her alma mater, the University of Kentucky. Smith graduated from the university in May 2020 with a degree in broadcast journalism.

Now, she works as a full-time reporter at WHAS, an ABC affiliate in Louisville, Kentucky.

Congratulations, Elle!

Rue’s downward spiral continued on the new episode of ‘Euphoria,’ while Nate and Cassie’s secret relationship got more intense. However, he’s still got a thing for Maddy.

Rue’s relapse is getting harder and harder to hide. She decides to find a cover drug and tells Gia that she wants to start smoking weed. The sisters get into a huge fight over it, and Rue begins to gaslight Gia. A tearful Rue tells Gia that she’s thinking about suicide. Gia falls in line with letting Rue smoke weed because of that.

Cassie is now getting up at 4 a.m. to get ready for school. It’s all to impress Nate, but he ignores her every single day. Cassie believes her ritual beauty routine is “her way of telling him that she was his.” There’s one time that she gets Nate to stop in his tracks, and it’s when she’s dressed like Maddy.

Rue Becomes A Drug Dealer

At one point, Cassie imagines spilling the beans about everything to Maddy, Kat, Lexi, and others, but she never says a word. Even though Nate ignores her at school, they’re still seeing each other. Cassie comes over every Friday night for a screw-fest.

Rue goes to Fez and asks her to front her drugs. Fez doesn’t play along with Rue’s games. He refuses to let her sell any drugs. Rue goes right to the source and pitches her plan to drug lord Lori. Lori gives her a suitcase filled with $50,000 worth of drugs. She says that Rue will have to pay up and re-up in a month. If Rue doesn’t pay, Lori will have her kidnapped and sold to some “real sick people.” At the end of the day, Lori is all about one thing: money.

Cal has been stalking Fez’s apartment but never makes a move. Ashtray sees Cal creeping and pulls a rifle on him. Ashtray brings Cal to Fez. It doesn’t take long for Cal to get smart with Fez, so Ashtray beats up over the head with his rifle. He says he’ll call the cops, but Fez and Ashtray call his bluff.

Cal admits that he had sex with Jules and didn’t know she was 17. All he wants is the disk with their sex tape on it. Fez reveals that Nate is the one who has it. He also notes that Nate is “in love with Jules,” and Cal is shell-shocked. Fez has no idea about this disk. Ashtray doesn’t want to let Cal go, but Fez makes the final decision. He lets Cal go but makes him swear to keep Nate out of their lives, as well as Rue and Jules’ lives.

Nate Returns To Maddy

Rue goes to a meeting, and Ali quizzes her about the suitcase. She says she has textbooks in there. When Rue gets smart with him, Ali begins to yell at her. She claps back, “What are you going to do? Hit me?” That makes Ali walk away.

Meanwhile, Jules and Elliot talk about Rue. Jules is still convinced that Elliot likes Rue. Elliot believes that Rue isn’t into him. Jules and Elliot begin to bond. It’s clear that he sees her for who she is and doesn’t judge her for it. There’s a growing disconnect between Rue and Jules, while there’s a growing connection between Jules and Elliot.

Ethan auditions for Lexi’s play and gets a major part. When he tells Kat, she’s not excited for him at all.

Rue lies to her mom about what’s in the suitcase. Rue goes back into her room and opens up the suitcase. She begins to do fentanyl again. Meanwhile, Cassie waits for Nate on yet another Friday night, but he never shows up. Why? He’s going to see Maddy!

Gwen Stefani’s son Kingston towered over her as they kept it casual and dressed comfy for their weekend shopping trip.

Gwen Stefani’s, 52, mini-me Kingston Rossdale, 15, isn’t so mini anymore. The teenager sure has grown up fast as he now stands a couple of inches taller than his mom. The “Rich Girl” singer wore an adorable navy blue set of sweats that read “Anaheim Hillbillies” and stylish hiker boots as she walked side-by-side with her son as he wore jeans and a black T-shirt. The two also donned face masks as Kingston held a big box for his mom which looked like it contained liquor. Click here to see the pics.

Former No Doubt band member has been there for her eldest son and his younger siblings, Zuma Rossdale, 13, and Apollo Rossdale. She recently took the three on a family outing and treated them to ice cream at the Beverly Glen Deli in October 2021. She has also spent time with them around her ex-husband and their father Gavin Rossdale.

There have been a number of co-parenting reunions at their youngest son Apollo’s baseball games. Gwen has brought her current husband Blake Shelton to these occasions as well and they have seemingly been pleasant and drama-free. Everyone seems to come together for these events to support the baby of the family.

The two Voice judges announced that they were dating in November 2015, just after their respective divorces. Even though they didn’t end up being on the show together for long, their relationship still stood strong. The country music star proposed to the pop star in October 2020 after nearly five years of dating. They tied the knot during an intimate ceremony at his Oklahoma ranch in July 2021.

Since then, they have reportedly been thriving as a couple. We checked in with sources close to the couple around the holiday season, and it seemed they weren’t letting the stress of the festivities get to them. “Blake and Gwen are exactly where you’d think they are with their relationship now being married for a few months as things begin to lead up to the holidays. Nothing has changed in marriage that they didn’t have in their dating and engagement lives and that is what makes things so great,” a source EXCLUSIVELY told HollywoodLife.

Tom Brady has a tough decision to make as this seems to be the first year that he has seriously considered retiring from the NFL.

Tom Brady, 44, may not be sticking around in the NFL for too much longer. Now that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers lost their playoffs game and his season is officially over, he has to revisit the decision about whether this is the year to retire. “Over any other year, this is the first year that retirement has even had an inkling of being thought about on Tom‘s side of things, a source EXCLUSIVELY tells HollywoodLife.

Apparently, his wife Gisele Bundchen, 40, will play a big role in Tom’s decision whether to continue with the NFL or retire. In fact, “conversations with Gisele in the offseason is going to be a major component on if he continues to play in the NFL or not,” our source tells us. This is not the first year that Gisele has had input but as the years go on, the decision becomes more and more difficult.

“After every year that goes by Tom has a conversation with Gisele to see where the family stands on him playing another year or not. “And regardless of how this season has ended, this year is looking to be the most important conversation yet,” the source explains, adding, “The kids are getting older, and they both want to decide how they really want to spend the next fifty years of their lives. And they are going to have many conversations after the season that are going to be very heartfelt.”

Regardless of how his wife feels, the Buccaneers want their quarterback to stick around. “Tampa wants him back and would do anything to get him back,” our source notes. “He still has a year left in his contract. The team really believes he will be back. Tom can pretty much write his own story and play for as long as he wants and if it was up to Tampa, they don’t want him to ever retire.“

The Buccaneers played the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday, Jan. 23. In a nail-biting game, the Rams ended up defeating the Buccaneers 30 – 27. Since this game was part of the playoffs, this means that the Buccaneers are out the running to compete in the Super Bowl and that they’re done playing for the season. Fans will have to stay tuned to see if Tom decides to return for his 23rd season.
