Disgraced beauty queen Tara Conner fesses up to using cocaine – as well as anti-depressants and other drugs – in an interview to air tomorrow.
According to Page Six, Conner will tell Matt Lauer on "Today," "I have done cocaine, yeah," and prescription drugs to boot. "I've tried several different things," says Miss USA, understatedly. People connected with the pageant had told TMZ when we broke the story that one of the big problems with Tara's situation was that her hair follicles had tested positive for cocaine – a much more sensitive test than urinalysis. Since then, allegations and eyewitness accounts of her nose-powdering activities have proliferated.
K-Fed Rejects $25Mil from Brit?
As K-Fed and Britney hash out their divorce settlement, TMZ has heard from both camps that the ex-couple is seriously trying to settle the case – including the money end of things. Regardless, K-Fed must be making a mint from that Super Bowl commercial because he just turned down a $25 million divorce settlement from Brit, according to Star. We don't know if that figure is accurate, but Star says it's Britney's final offer, the catch being that Kevin has to walk away from her – and the kids -- entirely. "There's no way he's going to disappear from their lives," says Star's source.
"Idol" Loves Courtney More Than Paula?
Though it might be like replacing Loopy with Crazy, Courtney Love says that "American Idol" really wants her as a judge – and maybe to replace Paula Abdul.
Love has revealed to Us that "Idol" honcho Nigel Lythgoe asked her whether she'd be interested in being a judge on the show, and a source says that he's thinking of replacing Paula with the infinitely more unpredictable rocker-actress. "I thought it was kind of weird but brilliant," says Love. It's not the first time rumors have swirled that Paula was in danger of being booted. Courtney is in L.A. recording a new solo album, says Us, and wouldn't reveal any more specific details. Reps for "Idol" had no comment.
Tori's Tupperware Party – for Baby
