Donald Trump has afforded Tara Conner a second chance and let her retain her Miss USA tiara, this amid reports that the just-turned-21-year-old has been painting the Big Apple red, availing herself of many an illicit vice/warm body. The Donald's decision elicited the wrath of, among others, infamous Apprentice alum Omarosa Manigault-Stallworth, herself a onetime Miss USA and Miss America contender, and now an international beauty-pageant coach. "I'm shocked that, in the context of what [Conner]'s accused of, he wouldn't consider the impact of this [decision]," Omarosa tells the New York Daily News. "It's hard enough these days to recruit girls, but if parents think pageants are all about partying and boozing, it will be even harder." Citing the restrictive terms of the Miss USA contract, she says Conner's carousing "is way over the line. This is a shock for everybody."

Though Conner, teary-eyed from Trump's forgiveness, denied that she has a drinking problem, Trump says that she would be entering a rehab facility as part of her nonfiring.
