LAS VEGAS (AP) -- A 25-year-old contestant from Connecticut has won the title of Miss USA in Las Vegas.

Erin Brady won the beauty pageant at the Planet Hollywood hotel-casino last night after strutting in a white sparkly gown and answering a question about the U.S. Supreme Court's decision upholding widespread DNA tests. Asked if she agreed with the decision, Brady said she did.

The Central Connecticut State University finance major could not contain her excitement at the prospect of telling her bosses at Prudential Financial she wouldn't coming in Monday. Brady gets the crown and a New York apartment for one year.

She is expected to spend her title reign on a nationwide speaking tour and raising breast and ovarian cancer awareness, the organization's official cause.

    Phone in your hand, computer on the table, tablet in your lap, if you were watching this story on TV (and not reading it on/playing it from our website), would you really be paying attention? Cronkite and Murrow never had to compete for attention with Candy Crush or Netflix. But I do, so I'm going to try introducing this story like this:In an exclusive, live, developing, breaking report, you, us, we, neighbors, folks, residents -- who am I even talking about?

    "Here Lies Love" tells the rise and fall of former Philippines first lady Imelda Marcos. History meets disco literally as the story is told in a nightclub.Ruthie Ann Miles plays Marcos. Miles admits a big challenge is bringing to life a woman with views vastly different from her own and giving that to show-goers. "As an actor you believe in yourself," Miles says. "You need to be your own best friend, your own biggest supporter so that the audience can come on a journey with you."

    Do women finally have an excuse to stop blow drying hair? "The wob," also known as the "wet bob," is apparently the hot new hairstyle this spring. I went to Femme Coiffure on Lincoln Road in Miami Beach where stylist Raphael Reboh helped me try the wet look for myself. Raphael says the wet look is a sexy look. He says it's beautiful and easy and great for the summer.
