Miss USA Tara Conner is now saying that she’s an alcohol and since getting some treatment in rehab she’s “a completely different person, My life has completely changed,” she said Friday. “I’m a completely different person out of rehab. Before I entered rehab I hardly knew who I was. I felt like I was floating and I just needed someone to pull me down.”
Ok come on. One month of rehab doesn’t reform a person. Give me a break! I do hope for her sake that rehab helped but it takes a long time to change your habits.
The 21 year old Miss USA went into rehab in Pennsylvania on December 21st, coincidentally that was 3 days after she turned 21 and became eligable to drink legally. She spent a total of 31 days in rehab.
“I didn’t think I had any kind of issue going into rehab. I even said, ‘I’ll get some free therapy,’ or something like that – and that was so ridiculous,” says Conner. “But I’ve realized I do have an issue. I suffer from the disease of alcoholism and addiction. And if there’s anything that I want people to know it’s the severity of this disease and what it can do to people.”
You might remember that she almost lost her title of Miss USA after reports of her wild partying hit the news, but Donald Trump gave her a second chance.
