Miss USA -- I Was a Drunk, Coked Up Liar

2/1/2007 11:21 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Click to return to TMZ.comIn her first television interview since leaving rehab, Conner sat with "Today's" Matt Lauer and admitted to abusing alcohol and cocaine, as well as other drugs, and suggested that an abusive childhood may have contributed to her woes.

Tara also characterized the pre-rehab Tara as "manipulative" and "dishonest" and said that she would regularly sneak out of her Trump Plaza apartment to party all over Manhattan. She said she'd never had a legal drink, as all her boozing went down before her 21st birthday in December, and she fessed up to doing cocaine, but denied knowing whether she had tested positive for the drug.

Conner, dressed in a demure beige suit, then fidgeted awkwardly when asked by Lauer about being abused as a youth. Out of "respect" for her family, she wouldn't address specific questions about what kind of abuse Lauer meant, but admitted that it had happened. She also flatly rejected any possibility she would pose for Playboy and said that she had been sober for more than 50 days.

Lauer and Conner will continue their talk on "Dateline," which will include footage of her doling out meals at a soup kitchen in lower Manhattan.

I do not to respond to personal insults and racist attacks against me, that is not my mission. I realize that in my struggle against RACISM, I will have to endure the fury of racist crackers all over this country. The struggle is more important than me, I'm only the messenger or deliverer. We shall overcome one day and I hope sooner than later. NO JUSTICE, NO PEACE!!!

- Farrah is an uneducated, naive racist person who still thinks that black people are slaves. I think she came in a time machine. LOL> she wants to blame the white people today for what white people did many many years ago.

How long before her sexual and druggie exploits appear on one of the large video dump sites? (freepornvideos69, youtube, livemotion, etc)?

Of course, then we'll have to watch her next round of "confessions".

First, the respondent "Farrah" is a stupid, ignorant, insecure, moronic racist. Look beyond your color missy, get some counseling and stop blaming everything on racism. You're obviiously deluisional and suffering from no self-esteem. Perhaps you'd like to blame your unsocial and unacceptable behavior on your poor, pathetic and perhaps abusive upbringing, since isn't that how life has always been for non-whites?. Get over your color and yourself; we're sick and tired of hearing about racist excuses; you've had your freedom for over two-hundred years. Try reading the autobiography by Booker T. Washington. It's black history month, and this book might enlighten you, assuming you haven't wasted your mind; I'm giving you the benefit of doubt in this regard.

ANYWAY - The blubbering idiot Miss USA, Tara Conner is another punk who likes to blame childhood abuse for turning out the way she did, as if abuse is acceptable to do drugs, do alcohol, run amok, whatever. No one told you to take the drugs, or alcohol, or go overboard having promiscuous sex. Take some responsibility for your actions and grow up, you over-indulged spoil wretched little twit. Perhaps you and Farrah can get together over a nice spot of tea and hash your poor pathetic do-nothing lives out; then after the two of you figure this out, perhaps you can figure out a way to find a cure for everything ailing this world, including racism, sexism, drug addition, alcoholism, abuse, et al.

By the looks of it, MOST OF YOU are FAR WORSE than Tara Connor. Just a bunch of judgmental crack addicts. Leave the girl alone. You all need REHAB for your viciousness and lack of forgiveness. Your mothers obviously didn't teach you to be a nice person either.

Ferrah, you should get a time machine to where slavery started. That will teach you a thing or two. And remember when you wrote "racist CRACKER". You are a racist yourself by saying cracker. I guess picking up a book and reading your history mush be hard when you only graduated the sixth grade. I guess talking about sh*t you don't know is easier.
