Beauty Queens Trash Conner, Rees

2/1/2007 4:04 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Tara Conner apologized to America on "Today," but not everyone's buying it.

Miss USA 2005 Chelsea Cooley, in an interview airing Monday on "The Dr. Keith Ablow Show," said the news of Tara's drug and alcohol use was "very disappointing" and "unfortunate," and left her wondering if Conner ever "looked at it (being Miss USA) as a job."

Tara's runner-up, Miss California Tamiko Nash, also appears on the show and says she hoped Donald Trump would give her Conner's crown, adding that she would have felt guilty if crowned at Conner's expense. Riiiiight.

Katie Rees: Click to launchThe two also weigh-in on Miss Nevada Katie Rees and the girl-on-girl action shots that got her dethroned, saying that they thought it was "fair" and "justified."

I think Tamiko would have made a great Miss America but apparently this wasn't in the cards. Personally, If I were Tamiko, I wouldn't want the crown passed down to me. It just wouldn't feel right.

I guess since the PARIS money is not coming in now and is probably done ...TMZ has turned its PAy for PLay routine over to OPRAH . Expect to see comment on lots of Dr. Phil , Dr. ASSblow and Ophrat shows in the future . Freedom of the Press -- now reduced 50 % .

I agree with anyone who feels like this trollop got a break she did not deserve. There is alot more to being Miss USA than just balancing a tiara on your head. You need to have some honor, some values and be a good role model. Tara has none of these things, and when she was caught, that should have been the end for her. Our pageant winners should be more than pole dancing drunken sluts acting like they're auditioning for Girls Gone Wild.

The reason Tamiko didn't win Miss America is, she was competing for MIss USA!

i thought pageants were all about being a gracious, well manored, sophisticated young lady. Basically a great role models for girls to look up to. I used to watch the pageants when i was young and think wow i want to be pretty and smart like "her". Sadly, this cannot be said of girls like ex Ms. NV and the current Ms. USA. They do not have the socail ettiquete to uphold such a position. Hopefully the new Ms. AMERICA, Lauren Nelson, from my state will do me proud, just like Jennifer Berry did! There still are a few sweet smart girls!

At least Tara Conner admits she has a problem, and she got help. I think Chelsea & Tamiko need to wish Tara good luck, and let her MOVE ON. She only has the crown for two more months, let her live her life.
