Irish American model and former Miss USA Tara Conner is back in the headlines this week.
The star, who nearly lost her Miss USA title amid revelations that she was abusing alcohol and drugs, used those same demons to help others in the MTV show "Girls of Hedsor Hall."
Conner used her own experience in rehab to try and coach the girls in the show which was produced by her former boss’s company Trump Productions LLC.
The reality show attempted to transform 12 wayward girls at Hedsor House in England.
"Being on the show brought back a lot of my old demons, but I’m proud to say I’ve been sober two years now and I’ve really been on my game," Conner said.
"But sometimes with the show and seeing the girls get eliminated when they reach the point of really wanting to try is heart-breaking because we actually care and we are very emotionally involved."
