This Miss USA garbage should be enough to make any sane person puke. If Tara Conner had been one of Trump's front-line employees at Don's Big Fat Boorish Empire, she would have been fired quickly for abusing alcohol while on the job. Trump and Conner should be embarassed by using her misdeeds as a press ploy, and the press should plead guilty to being used by two people who really haven't done squat to make the world a better place but who continue to suck up oxygen and create ink.

The Hilary Duff article talks about her and her 'boyfriend,' Joel.....I thought they had broken up. Are they already back together? Am I out of the loop?

Posted by: Outoftheloop | December 20, 2006 9:41 AM | Report abuse

Oooo! Oooo! Oooo! The only important news today is that Lost might come back early. (although I could get psyched about a SITC movie given time...)

I firmly expect Mr. & Mrs. Mathers to marry and divorce several more times before I go off to that VIP room im the sky.

How legit can Miss USA be when it's owned by Trump?

Honestly, could any of you have named her or pointed her out in a crowd before this fiasco?

I don't care if she's drunk or drugged or whatever, she won a beauty pagent not the Nobel Peace Prize.

And let the "It's about the college money & their causes" crowd start raving......NOW!GO!

I swear there is a future in a television show called "Celebrity Intervention." You could have someone like Simon Cowell calling a Paris/Britney/LiLo on the carpet for their behavior....

"Now really, Paris/Britney/LiLo, do you think that your ---- is your most attractive body part?"

"You don't. Well, then, why do you keep flashing it at people?"

Star Jones is a diva? Huh. Learn something new everyday.

If Madonna's directing is ANYTHING like her acting I can't wait...

Sean Penn should just shut-up. He is, after all, just an actor. If he is a good actor, which some people believe, we can't tell the real Sean from the part he is playing. That makes him a liar by profession.

So, involving himself in politics is a waste of his time and ours, unless he is trying to get a little free publicicty, which you have just provided him.

Wait, I just had a re-think: If Sean IS a liar by profession that makes him more than qualitfied for the US Congress.

Ruben Studdard is the next Mike Huckabee. RUBEN FOR GOVERNOR!

Wow, this is big. Okay, let me catch me breath. Okay, Bigolpoofter credits Miss USA and the Don with creating ink. I thought Al Gore invented ink.

Bored questions the legitimacy of Miss US of A. Listen up buster! I am an AMERICAN. You're not going to barf on Miss USA, or Miss Teen USA for that matter, when I am around. This is a tough time for merica. It's a hard time, it's hard work. We need to work together to achieve common objectives. Stripping Miss USA is not going to help those objectives. Stripping Miss Teen USA is not going to help achieve those objectives. It's not in our nation's interests to do so. Also, switch grass and nuclear power will be essential future sources of energy. Clean coal technologies will generate electricity in environmentally friendly ways short-term and long-term in newly opened markets.

P.S. The Don makes thing MORE legitimate not less. But, it's impossible in this case because the legitimacy of Miss USA is already 100%. There's only one more legitimate outfit in the US of A, that's the Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders. You get your ass through that selection process and you damned well accomplished something. You say something against that outfit and boy you stepped into a world of trouble.

If your boyfriend records a CD about how much he hates you, you should:
1) Not marry him.
2) Not marry him for the second time,

2) Not marry her for a second time, just visit the child
3) Paid child support, visit child, but don't marry her for a third time

You know you have an image problem when you are willing to strip for free, but the club manager turns you down.

Lisa, if you're not a life coach already, you should be.

Let me mention one more thing to Mr. Bored, I sure as heck could pick out Miss America in a crowd. The average American woman weighs one hundred and sixty-five pounds and, if you couldn't pick out which one was Miss America, boy you have one heckofa problem.

Now step up to the plate son and let me hear from ya.

Thank you, USA Space Monkey, for confirming that I am above-average.

I apologize. I was trying to be funny and won't post anymore for a time.

Thank you, Space Monkey. You may now return to Paper Lane.

Did anyone see all the coverage this a.m. on "Good Morning America" about Miss USA? It was during the first hour -- usually reserved for "real" news. Is Trump part of the ABC/Disney axis of evil? And if Miss USA is such a big story, why doesn't GMA cover what she does the rest of the year. Barf.

awww.. leave space monkey alone!!! I got a laugh out of it!!!! Preach on space monkey. Preach on.

>The average American woman weighs one hundred and sixty-five pounds and, if you couldn't pick out which one was Miss America, boy you have one heckofa problem.

So, you're saying that you could pick her out of a crowd of "average" women. That's about as difficult as picking out the Sumo Wrestler on "Identity"

Now, lets say you had to pick her out of 50 other women that had similar builds to her. Like all the other Miss USA contestants, perhaps. If they weren't wearing their sashes, do you really believe you would've been able to pick out which one was Ms. USA prior to all the drinking shenanigans?

If Miss USA is entering rehab how will she fulfill her "duties'?

On the subject of rehab, perhaps Britney should consider it. Can't even generate interest in a strip club, booed at Laker games.... hmm perhaps the public is telling her something. Ya think?

Some people could have picked her out after watching Project Runway this past summer.

USA Space Monkey said, "Stripping Miss USA is not going to help those objectives. Stripping Miss Teen USA is not going to help achieve those objectives."

Maybe so. But "Stripping Miss USA" and "Stripping Miss Teen USA" - now, *those* I'd watch.

Isn't Hilary Swank's agent/boyfriend married, with a family? Huh. Has she been taking lessons in morals from Angelina Jolie?

Sean Penn made his speech at the First Amendment Awards ... how apropos! Good for him.

Just for the record Mr. Monkey, I'm not a he, I am now & have always been a she.

Second, are you sure you're not Foghorn Leghorn in disguise?

Don't stop posting, I love your posts!!

But I thought hot girl-on-girl action was un-American.

Thanks Darastar! I did not realize they were the same person for some reason! Guess she kind of seemed different almost in tears (as opposed to when she was with Kayne, who was almost in tears!)
