Miss USA Faces Dethronement

by | 19 December 2006

Miss USA could lose her crown today after reports that she has failed a drugs test.

Tara Conner, the 21-year-old Kentucky beauty who was named Miss USA in April this year, has been plagued by rumours of late-night partying and sneaking men back into her apartment provided by Donald Trump, the pageant's owner.

And, to top it all off, the New York Daily News claimed at the weekend that she has tested positive for cocaine.

Her fate is set to be sealed this morning when Mr Trump will announce his decision at a press conference.

Paula Shugart, president of the Miss Universe Organisation, said: "The Miss Universe Organisation and Donald Trump will be evaluating her behavioural and personal issues to see what we can do to work with her, and what we will do about her reign going forward."

If Miss Conner is stripped of her crown, then she could be replaced with Miss California Tamiko Nash, the Miss USA runner-up.

Former Miss USA Shanna Moakler expressed her sympathy for Miss Conner, telling tmz.com that it is hard to fully prepare for the rigours of the responsibilities the title brings.

"I don't think a lot of women are prepared when they take the title," she said.

"Most women in pageants love the actual pageant  the competition, the show. They don't understand that it is actually a real job that you are paid a real salary for. You're travelling 85 per cent of the year, working with different charities and organisations and making appearances at events."
