America’s best-known and most controversial women’s rights attorney, Gloria Allred, has joined the case of the disqualified — transgender — Miss Universe contestant, Celebuzz has learned.

Beauty queen Jenna Talackova and Allred will hold a media conference on Tuesday in what the lawyer billed, in a news release, as “Gloria Allred vs. Donald Trump.”

“At the news conference, Ms. Talackova will discuss her feelings about being suddenly excluded from the Pageant competition,” Allred wrote in the missive, just sent out to reporters. 

“Ms. Allred will discuss why Jenna should be permitted to compete and what action she plans to take in the United States on behalf of Ms. Talackova if the Miss Universe Pageant refuses to change its discriminatory rule.”

Talackova, a 6’1″ blonde, was born a male but underwent sex reassignment surgery when she was 19.

Even though Trump’s Miss Universe officials acknowledged that she is a “real girl,” she was disqualified because rules stipulated that all contestants be “naturally born female.”

The super lawyer has represented a host of high-profile clientele; most recently she appeared alongside Sharon Bialek, who allegedly had an affair with one-time presidential hopeful Herman Cain.

Allred has also represented, among others, Tiger Woods’ mistress Rachel Uchitel.
