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.

Tara Conner knew what she was doing, when she was doing it. I agree that she should have given up her crown and position. She needs to step down and allow a more qualified person take over the reign.

Between the derby horse and this girl I have had enough. There are much more important things going on than this stuff. Like the horse lived in a better home than a lot of americans and had acess to better medical than most americans. And this girl who is paying all her bills right now. Another stable owner.
enough enough.

Farrah, why are you so angry? You're anger is going to eat away at your soul. Racism will never go away because of those of you (white and black) who hang on to it like a noose. It's taught in the home and it festers from generation to generation. Can't we allow our children and grandchildren to learn that there is a better way.

She should just resign. She just needs to realize that she is NOT Miss USA material(or I certainly hope not)

She admits to being a liar. I wonder if she has lied about her age, as she seems older than 21!

mmm she is so fine... so she made a few mistakes, and partied a little to hard... big deal, she's 21 years old.

Trump favoring her or not she still has a lot of gut to come forward and admit how f-ed up she is/was.

She may not not be a perfect role model, and maybe she did get a little special treatment, but at least we don't have a lazy, ignorant, jungle bunny like Faarah as Miss USA!!!

NO JUSTICE NO PEACE!!

I don't care about her being white. It just so happens that there are examples of where black women have done far less and they got the boot. she i a crackhead and she gets to keep hers? She suckin some good d#ck out here somewhere. tha'ts the only thing i can think of.

"Nessa( vanessa Williams" got her's taken away for pics done YEARS before she won the crown

Her replacement would have been a black woman.

now then nevada chick got the boot and her's was BEFORE she ran for the pageant. but they took her's. what must you be a crackhead WHILE the pageant is going on to get sympathy from donald trump?
