Miss USA Dethroned

Tara Conner has been terminated. She'll be missed. Though somehow I don't think this is the last we'll see of her. I guess in the future if Donald Trump and the pageant organizers don't want the temptations of New York nightlife to get in the way of Miss USA fulfilling her duties, perhaps they ought to hole her up somewhere else. Apparently, the young Kentucky lass was blinded by the big lights of the big city, the 4 a.m. closing times, and Bolivian marching powder.
Hard-partying Miss USA Tara Conner was booted out of her ritzy Trump Place apartment and fled the Big Apple to her tiny Kentucky hometown with her reputation in shambles, as reports swirled yesterday that her runner-up had already been tapped to replace her.

"She does not live here anymore," said a doorman at the posh Upper West Side property, where the Miss USA winner is given an apartment every year. "She is not allowed any where on Trump property. She is certainly not allowed to come back. I don't think it was her choice, really."

There's a certain irony that Donald Trump would judge someone on moral grounds. Still, it sounds like she liked to party way too much.
A source said pageant officials had requested that Conner submit to testing for recreational drugs.

Conner returned to her hometown of Russell Springs, Ky. (population 2,399), sources said. The phones rang unanswered at both her mother and father's homes. A woman who answered the phone at her aunt's home declined to comment.

As word spread of Conner's presumed fall from grace, tales of her being blinded by the bright lights of the Big Apple and succumbing to wild escapades of clubbing, sex and drug abuse emerged.

"She has a really bad drug problem. Everyone at Miss USA hated her. She slept with [Blink 182's] Travis Barker and she sleeps with all the club promoters," said one source.
