American Beauty Queens’ High Jinks Passed Off As Media Hype

On Tuesday last, that infamous firer-of-apprentices, Donald Trump, managed to reap some publicity out of the passé Miss USA Pageant and, at the same time, projected the previously unknown Tara Conner, 21, into the limelight.

            Guess what for? Threatening to fire her because of her under-age drinking, illicit drug taking, and high jinks with fellow beauty queen, Katie Blair,18, at a New York City hotspot, plus romping with various men in their Trump Tower apartment – depends which scandal rag you’ve been reading. 

            Of course, the all-forgiving impresario saved the day, and ensured Conner retains her title as Miss USA by insisting that she undertakes rehabilitation and acts as an exemplar for other similar waifs with problems. Trump passed the off the whole furore as a scandal-media hype and poor little country girls mesmerized by the Big Apple and all its temptations. 

            Blair, Miss Teen USA, was cast as even more innocent than Conner and appropriate alibis were reeled out to cover her indiscretions. She’d apparently been with her grandmother on one of the nights she was reportedly drinking with Conner, and her presence at another club with a pageant photographer were categorically denied. Her schedule will continue uninterrupted, and none of her beauty queen privileges will be revoked, but claims of underage drinking would be investigated. 

            Part of the problem may well have arisen due to the two beauty queens sharing the same apartment, along with Miss Universe, Zuleyka Rivera. Pageant officials are reportedly considering whether to increase the size of apartment, or employ a chaperone to keep the girls in check.
