Surprise, Surprise: Trump Doesn't Fire Miss USA
Donald Trump gave the 21-year-old blonde and busty Miss USA a second chance. How big of him.
Kentucky's Tara Conner came thisclose to getting dethroned amid reports of her underage partying ways in the Big Apple. (She just turned 21 on Monday.) But after what was probably a heartfelt meeting this morning, the old Trumpster decided to give her a second chance. 'Cause Trump's like God in this case. He owns -- literally, with NBC -- the Miss Universe organization.
"In a tear-choked voice, Conner said, "In no way did I think it would be possible for a second chance to be given to me." Turning to Trump, she said, "You'll never know what this means to me, and I swear I will not let you down."
Trump said Conner would be entering rehab."
