Miss USA's all-night bender lands her in trouble

June 9, 2011 - Washington

Miss USA Rima Fakih has been asked to talk to Miss USA 2006 Tara Conner after her behaviour was questioned by Miss Universe Organization (MUO).

The organization's President Paula Shugart confirmed that Fakih's recent behaviour has been questionable, after she was suspected of having an all-night bender last week.

According to an insider, the biggest concern over Fakih initially was what she potentially got up to during these unscheduled escapades, and whether it could bring embarrassment to the organization.

Fakih was made to talk to Conner, who was forced by pageant-owner Donald Trump to enter rehab during her 2006 reign as a condition for keeping her crown.

"Rima said talking to Tara was really helpful. Keep in mind, whoever wins goes to New York and their entire world is packed up and they live no expenses for a year," Fox News quoted Shugart as saying.

"You meet a lot of famous people and you can get caught up in that. So I had Tara call her and give her some advice.

"Rima said it helped her learn you can't fool all of us, and Tara said it makes it easier if she just tells the truth," she added.
