I don't know why I even care
But I do care a little. Actually, let me say first that these accusations were just that. I don't know if The Donald had any proof that she did this stuff or if it was all made up. Second, I don't care who Tara Conner hooks up with. If she wants to make hay with another beautiful young lady, let them make bales and bales of the stuff.
However, while I appreciated The Donald being compassionate and giving Conner a second change, I couldn't help but be a little cynical and wonder if it was just a PR move. This is a man who has fired people on The Apprentice for not having good personalities or representing their teams well in public. He fired one man - a Miami attorney - who had immunity but as a goodwill, team player gesture offered to put himself on the chopping block with others. The Donald told that man that it was a stupid move to give up his immunity, a stupid move that warranted firing. Maybe it was stupid, but it was genuine. It was old school. It was the captain being willing to go down with the ship.
There's nothing wrong with partying with good sense. But this young woman from Russell Springs, KY, signed contracts saying she'd follow strict behavioral guidelines during her reign. Then at yesterday's press conference she used the oldest BS line in the books. She blamed her recent alleged behavior on being overwhelmed by the craziness of the big city. So New York made her go bananas? I have more wild friends who live in the 'burbs and the countryside than I've ever had in the "big city."
There's an old saying that I heard TV head shrinker Dr. Keith Ablow repeat this morning: "Wherever you go, that's where you are."
I know I shouldn't care. I just can't help it.
