Tara Sinks;

Trump Likes the Ink

12/18/2006 5:20 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

It won't be a very happy 21st birthday today for Tara Conner: The Kentucky beauty is on the verge of losing her Miss USA crown over allegations of drug use and excessive partying, and sources tell TMZ she will be replaced tomorrow officially by Tamiko Nash, Miss California.

The damning evidence continues to mount against Conner, whose tumultuous reign began in April. Yesterday, the New York Daily News reported that Conner had failed a drug test for cocaine. Sources confirm to TMZ that after she was "caught red-handed," she took a hair follicle drug test that returned positive for coke.

What's more, we're told that pageant officials knew they had a problem with Conner and her wild ways "the minute she was crowned," and have been deeply troubled by her friendship with 18-year-old Miss Teen USA Katie Blair. The pair have been spotted kissing (yes -- each other) in bars, and returning together to her posh Trump Place apartment -- which Conner has since vacated -- late at night with a variety of men. To be clear, a rep for the pageant says that the allegations about Miss Teen USA are totally unfounded.

Meanwhile, TMZ has learned that The Donald himself could have made a decision on Conner's future weeks ago, and allowed the matter to pass with a minimum of media attention. However, according to a well-placed insider, Trump has been relishing the publicity that the Conner situation has generated for his pageant and let the fiasco continue to play out.

Tara may be cheered a bit to learn that at least one payday awaits: Penthouse magazine has been actively courting her services for a photo spread...

I cannot believe what racist ingnorant people still exist...For all of you ON HERE THAT HAVE RESPONDED TO FARRAH'S POST WITH YOUR RACIST COMMENTS is just sickening..and thats coming from someone who is Black and did not have any thoughts of racism while reading this story...How are you going to call her stupid for her opinion and then deny that racism exist by posting sh*t like most blacks look like monkeys, or come clean my house..This is sick..You expect Blacks or other minorities to get over this whole racism still exist rant, but thank you for assuring us that we will never be able to get over it until it no longer exist....I think all you racist ass idiots need to be put on an island so you can live amongst yourselves and be happy..We were all created differently for a reason..God did not make us different colors or sizes so we could make fun of one another...He made us different so we could appreciate our differences....I swear you racist people are stupid..Do something better with your life..

You need to know two things.
(!) This is not a race issue, never was, never will be. Tara has messed up, typical for a 20 year old thrust into the limelight. It may be possible to rehabilitate her.
(2) Snoop Dogg of "Girls Gone Wild" and the runner up replacement. If you don't know the potential problem there, TMZ will be letting you know.
The rest is up to Mr. Trump. Don't be surprised if Tara is given a second chance to redeem herself.

How can you say that you GUARANTEE the people that don't agree with you are ugly inside & out, picked on as children, blah, blah, blah?? Do you personally know anyone posting on here?!! I think not!

#43 Farrah, You said that racism is alive and strong and will not go away. It will not go away because of people like YOU. Blacks play the race card every chance they get!! You all are idiots!!!!!!!!!! I feel sorry for you and your race!!!!! Look at Chris Rocks mom who tried to sue the Cracker Barrell restaurant a few months ago. She said that she was not waited on because she was black! How ridiculous!!! If you are so unhappy living in the racist USA, then leave and shut up!!! YOU are the reason whites call blacks "Niggers"!!!!!!! Get over it!!!!!!

I am actually NOT a Christian but I am SO tired of people in this country - Bill O'Reilly, George Bush, Ann Coulter, bloggers on this post - espousing allegedly "Christian" views that Jesus would have rolled his eyes at.

And Farrah, I agree with you... people DON'T know about the struggle and people DO lack compassion. It is the result of the lack of good family, lack of good books, lack of good friends, lack of good education, lack of good heart, and a lack of good mind.

And to the eloquent writer above who said that I like black c**k, I am acutally white and have a white boyfriend. But I could have JUST as easily dated a black person, an asian person, an hispanic, or an eskimo. There are good and bad white Americans, just as there are good and bad people of every other race and national origin.

That said, Farrah may not be correct... race may not have had anything to do with this situation, but to DENY that racism is alive and well in the US, well, that is just naive.... and to DENY it exists by posting a eurocentric message on a blog, well, that is just pathetic.

Racism wounds run and they run deep.... pick up a good newspaper (NYTimes, Washington Post, San Fran Chronicle) every day for two weeks and COUNT the number of stories tinged with racism. I challenge you (though I know such a notion is far beyond your realm of possiblity).

May peace be upon you all, and may you be born again in the next life, into a position where you are unable to enjoy the luxury of denial...

Farrah has achieved exactly what she wanted. She distracted people from the original reason for the post and turned the attention to her with her racist slant. I don't think she even cares about the issue, she just dropped the statement to create attention towards herself. Guess what it worked! Ignore her and she will go away. Farrah is a very needy person

It's obvious Farrah doen't have a job. She probably sleeps in until 1:00 p.m., smokes some weed, gets her nails done(you know- the really long ones with the flowers), calls her baby's daddy, and then posts her ridiculuous comments
