Anna Malova, former Miss Russia and Miss Universe finalist, was sent back to Rikers Island earlier this month after another patient at a Bronx drug rehabilitation facility took out an order of protection against her. The other patient said Malova slapped her.
The order of protection is still pending, making it impossible for Malova to return to the facility. So a judge ordered her held at Rikers at least until Jan. 3, her next court appearance.
