Last year's Miss USA, Tara Conner, celebrated her 22nd birthday December 13 - and is also marking her first year of sobriety, she announced Friday on Today.

By this time next year, Tara Conner intends to have another accomplishment under her belt: a tell-all book about her experiences and life lessons, she says.

The Russell Springs, Ky., native spent 31 days recovering at the Caron Foundation rehab facility in Wernersville, Pa., in December 2006.

That followed allegations of wild partying with Miss Teen USA Katie Blair and wide speculation that she would be stripped of her title.

Donald Trump, co-owner of the Miss Universe organization, instead offered her a "second chance" - provided Tara Conner would clean up her act.

A clean, sober Tara Conner plans to write a book about life.

On a side note, his decision over what to do with Conner ignited Trump's famous feud with Rosie O'Donnell, and spawned a reality show, Pageant Place.

Conner completed rehab back on January 21 of this year. Soon after, the blonde beauty admitted that her indulgences had also included cocaine.

Of going to rehab, she told the Lexington Herald-Leader in March, "It taught me to be the genuine Tara Conner. Rehab for me was like an awakening."

An awakening, indeed. The Hollywood Gossip certainly enjoyed waking up each morning to those sexy photos of drunken, raunchy, half-naked girl-on-girl action!

After a year as Miss USA, Tara Conner is no longer under the watchful eye of Donald Trump.

But given who the former cocaine addict is hanging out with these days, The Donald probably wishes he could get an up close seat of their interactions. Girl-on-girl action, anyone?

We only pose the question because Conner was spotted at Spike TV's "Guy's Choice" Awards over the weekend posing with porn star Tera Patrick. An up and comer in the business, she's challenging Jenna Jameson for most well-known naked actress in the world.

Does this mean Conner may soon be entering the adult film world? It's hard to say. Katie Rees, another troubled beauty queen, has been taking advantage of her sex symbol status. What's to stop Tara from milking her reputation for all the money it's worth?

It's something that Antonella Barba is also struggling with these days.

If these beauties are really looking for career advice, The Hollywood Gossip staff has a suggestion: stay away from Simon Monjack. That dude will steal all your money.

Hayden Panettiere, step off.

Yes, we know. You're an up-and-comer, as we've seen in some recent photos. But you've got nothing on some of the sex-crazed, attention-craving purveyors of girl-on-girl action seen below. Consider this something to strive toward.

Spencer and Heidi: Not Married

Let's take a look at The Hollywood Gossip's All-Star Team ...

FRIENDS WITH BENEFITS: Lauren Conrad (left) leans in to give Heidi Montag some sugar. And this was before Heidi's boob job! There will be no more slumber parties or tickle fights between these former roomies, though. Just real fights. LC and Heidi aren't really friends, mostly because of her relationship with that d!ck Spencer Pratt. The photo at right, of a pre-train wreck Britney Spears going at it with Madonna, needs no introduction.

SISTERS AND PORN STARS: We knew she'd sleep with just about anything, but we didn't expect to see Sienna Miller (left) gettin' freaky... with her sister! Yes, borderline incestual girl-on-girl action, ladies and gentlemen. Let's just hope she didn't slip her the tongue. And while it's probably not fair to include a porn star in this feature (as they get paid for lesbian action), we weren't about to exclude the lusty pride of Broward County, Mary Carey.

BEAUTY QUEENS GONE WILD: Call it (disgraced) beauty queens row. Tara Conner and Katie Blair (left) not only made headlines for winning the 2006 Miss USA and Miss Teen USA pageants, but for hooking up. With each other. Is this a great country or what? Meanwhile, Katie Rees (right, middle) was stripped of Miss Nevada honors after this pic and others like it surfaced. But who are you gonna remember, her or Helen Salas? Exactly.

Forget you, Tamiko Nash!

The runner-up to everyone's favorite Miss USA has blown her chance to make headlines with Tara Conner - so the recovering alcoholic is running it back with a different, younger, occasionally lesbian beauty queen.

Indeed, Conner hooked up with Miss Teen USA Katie Blair once again ... this time on a runway.

The lovely ladies took part in the Tadashi Shoji fashion show Sunday morning, doubling as pageant-level arm candy for the designer. We're surprised Heidi Montag wasn't also invited along for PR purposes.

Conner continued her tour of contrition clad in a vampy black number, while her ex-kissing partner wore a short gold dress. This time, sadly, there was none of that impromptu girl-on-girl action these two have become famous for.

They need to invite Katie Rees along next time.
