Tara Conner: You're Not Fired! Proclaims Donald Trump
Tara Conner didn't spend her 21st birthdaythe way she had previously anticipated. No, Tara Conner spent yesterday fearing the worst, especially after reportedly failing a drug test that almost sealed her fate.
Tara Conner, who hit the headlines after a string of wild antics in New York bars, learned of her fate today when the Miss USA pageant owner Donald Trump made his decision as to whether or not the Kentucky beauty should keep her crown.
You're Not Fired!
That was the edict handed down by Trump. However, Tara Conner will be going into rehab.
"I've always been a believer in second chances," Trump said at a news conference. He and Connor met earlier Tuesday morning.
Connor won the title in April and has been living in New York. Recent media accounts of
heavy drinking brought a firestorm of criticism, since she was underage at the time. Tittle-Tattle Too

A Colorado soldier who'd been in Iraq about eight weeks has died of injuries suffered in a roadside bombing in Taji (TAH'-jee), Iraq.
Funeral arrangements are pending for 19-year-old Private First Class Seth Stanton. He was assigned to the 1st Cavalry Division based at Fort Hood, Texas.
The Pentagon has NOT released details of last week's incident, but his grandfather, Joe DeMello of Woodland Park, says Stanton was the commander of a patrol in Taji. KSWO
