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.

    It's a running joke that if you mention the Eugene O'Neill Theater Center to nearly anyone in Hollywood they're going to know exactly what you're talking about because odds are they might have gotten their first big break there. Would you believe some Hollywood's biggest stars -- Meryl Streep, Michael Douglas, Angela Bassett -- got their start in a big red barn in the middle of nowhere.
