For those unaware, there has been recent controversy around Miss USA, Tara Conner. She was ordered to enter rehab in order to deal with a drug and alcohol problem.
According to reports - and the attached picture of the two at a party - Maroulis and Conner spent a night on the town at a NYC pool hall last October, partying with pop singer Ryan Cabrera and Six Degrees star Jay Hernandez.
The evening was even caught on video camera by Maroulis, who looks straight into the lens and admits that they "have to get to some partying. You know how it is."
Sounds to us like Miss USA had some American Idol worshipping of her own going on for awhile!
