The former model, who was a judge at the Las Vegas event on Friday night (11.04.08), insists she had a great time despite being loudly booed when she was introduced.
Heather, the ex-wife of Sir Paul McCartney, said: "I really enjoyed myself. It was a great contest. If there was some negative reaction, what can you do? There will always be people like that."
After the pageant, Heather partied at Las Vegas nightclub Prive into the early hours.
She danced until 2am before returning to her luxury suite at the Planet Hollywood Hotel and Casino.
Although Heather failed to win over the pageant crowd, she revealed she is still hoping to quit the UK and move stateside.
The 40-year-old vegan, who has a four-year-old daughter Beatrice with Paul, said: "In England, people don't like me. But I am going to move to America, to Los Angeles hopefully. I love England but everything that has happened makes me realise I will be better off in the States."
Heather previously claimed Paul would never allow her to move to the US with their daughter.
On Friday, Heather was seen in deep conversation with US publicist Elliot Mintz - who has worked with Paris Hilton - sparking reports she is planning to hire him to boost her profile in America.
A source told Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper: "Elliot thinks her bad reputation is nothing more than a challenge. He thinks Heather could become a big star. There are a lot of agents in Los Angeles who would represent Heather as they know her notoriety could be very profitable."
