SECOND CHANCE

A day after being pardoned by pageant owner Donald Trump (who's having a battle of his own with Rosie O'Donnell over it), a jubilant Miss USA – Tara Conner – steps out in New York City on Wednesday. Conner almost lost her title after reports surfaced that too much hard partying interfered with the responsibilities that came with her crown. She has agreed to go to rehab.
