UPDATE: Not only is he not dating the current Miss USA, but it looks like Doug Reinhardt isn't dating 2009 Miss USA Kristen Dalton, either. Dalton tells E! she has never been romantically involved with Reinhardt and their contact was purely for business purposes.

"Doug and I were only talking professionally," says Dalton. "I am with Reid [Rosenthal] and we are very serious about each other."

Dalton says she spoke with Reinhardt on the phone about possible hosting gigs and Rosenthal was aware of the conversations and that they were strictly business related.


Stop the presses!

As if the whole pole-dancing pics thing wasn't scandalous enough, now Miss USA Rima Fakih is being linked to one of Paris Hilton's ex-boyfriends.

Us Weekly has a story claiming Rima is dating Doug Reinhardt. However, a source tells E! News they've never even met.

However, this rumor probably got started because of whom Reinhardt is getting to know...

A former Miss USA, that is.

A source tells E! that Reinhardt has been talking to Miss USA 2009, Kristen Dalton, from North Carolina.

Dalton first heard about Doug through mutual friends and took the initiative to call him.

"She said, 'We should meet up the next time I'm in town'," a source tells E!, adding that the two have talked on the phone for a few weeks, but haven't met in person...yet.

They may get together very soon, as Doug's in NYC, where Kristen lives.

But this meet-up might come as a surprise to her on-again, off-again boyfriend Reid Rosenthal of The Bachelor. Just a few weeks ago, he reportedly visited Kristen in Las Vegas at the Miss USA pagaent at Planet Hollywood and had plans to propose.

"She told Doug she's in an on/off relationship," the source tells E! "But Doug doesn't care. She's the one who called him."
