Tara Conner, The Best Thing To Happen To The Miss USA Franchise Since Self-Tanner

I don’t even remember knowing who the hell the last Miss USA was that actually did anything, since Vanessa Williams got in hot water for posing for Playboy. And now, it sounds like Tara Conner is checking herself into rehab. Let’s hope she can get sober, but remain socially relevant. US Weekly reports:

“She parties like one of the guys,” pal Jay Galvin tells Us of Conner, who turned 21 yesterday and moved to New York shortly after her Miss USA win in April. “She drinks Jack Daniels like it’s water.” Adds another NYC nightclub source, “Tara goes through guys like nobody’s business.” (Rumored hookups include Travis Barker and MTV VJ Damien Fahey.) During a press conference on Tuesday, Donald Trump told reporters: “She’s agreed to go into rehab. She knows that if she makes even the slightest mistake from here on, she will be immediately replaced.”

So, now that I’m understanding that the whole point of Miss USA isn’t to party like it’s 1999, I’m once again in the dark as to what these women are actually supposed to do. Damn.
