Tara Conner

Tara Conner has announced thather alcoholism and drug addiction were a result of her childhood abuse:

Fallen beauty queen, Miss USA Tara Conner, said she had witnessed abuse as a child and that may have driven her into a life of alcohol and drugs -- but she still believed she could be a good role model.

Conner, 21, came close to losing her crown last month because of her wild behavior but was given a second chance by real estate tycoon and reality TV star, Donald Trump, owner of the Miss USA contest, after she agreed to enter a rehabilitation program.

In her first interview since emerging from a month in rehab, Conner said she had come to terms with the fact that she was an alcoholic, willingly admitted she had taken cocaine, and described her past behavior as dishonest and manipulative.

But she said she had faced her "demons" and hinted her problems may have stemmed from some unspecified abuse during her childhood with someone she recently confronted. She would not comment on whether this abuse was sexual.

Has it really come to this? That liking an drink and a toot (in the past, considered quite normal behaviour for beautiful young women making a fortune) is a crime which must be blamed on something?
