Carrie Prejean may Lose her Crown on Monday

May 9, 2009

(ChattahBox)—Miss California, Carrie Prejean and first runner-up in the 2009 Miss U.S.A pageant is in a bit of hot water with pageant officials and may lose her crown on Monday. The 21-year-old beauty contestant made headlines, when she answered a question posed by Perez Hilton during the U.S.A pageant, saying she was opposed to gay marriage. Since that time, she has been the subject of a media frenzy.

After the Miss U.S.A pageant, Prejean raised eyebrows when she appeared in an ad supporting “opposite sex” marriage, when she didn’t inform pageant officials. In recent days, topless photos have surfaced of Prejean taken when she was 17-years-old, which is a violation of both pageant contracts. Prejean had previously told pageant officials that no naked pictures existed.

California pageant officials, Shanna Moakler and Keith Lewis scheduled a press conference on Monday to announce their decision regarding Prejean’s crown.Tami Farrell, who lost to Prejean in the Miss California contest, will also attend the press conference. Farrell’s attendance doesn’t bode well for Prejean.

Donald Trump is also holding a press conference on Tuesday to announce whether Prejean will keep her Miss U.S.A., runner up title.

    That’s ridiculous!! Seriously are they actually doing all this to her because she stood up for her own personal beliefs. I bet you it’s all the stupid gay activists and Perez HIlton who lobbied to get her stripped of her crown. I wholeheartedly support this girl and you know the only reason they went snooping for nude pics of her is because she firmly stood her ground. I mean c’mon she didn’t offend anyone by stating her morals and values because she clearly said “No offense to anyone out there,” just some people are hung on demoralizing politically correct people. If she had said she supports gay marraige this never would of happened and she would probabaly have won and no one would have even bothered to look at her pictures. AND, what’s the difference in being in an anti-gay marraige commercial or in in an anti-animal abuse commercial. They’re both commercials and they both stand for a cause. Some people are never satisfied with the life they’re living.

    This is from a discussion on the “Miss USA” website:

    If the Miss USA pageant becomes seen as the gay pageant, run by gay activists, that choose gay men to judge female beauty (or maybe just how much they like their answers) — and that design questions to promote a gay, aggressive, and unpopular political agenda — and that uses beauty queens for the No on 8 campaign, the Miss USA pageant is finished.


    The public won’t understand that Miss California was fired for photo(s) that show less than the bikinis they wear in the pageant — by a Playboy bunny!


    They will understand she was fired for expressing her opinion honestly and straightforwardly.


    The directors spoke out against Miss Prejean’s answer. We *know* who asked Carrie Jean for *her* opinion, and *she* was expected to give it. Were the *directors* expected to give their *critique* of her opinion? Disclosing her boob job was hitting below the belt. Most would prefer that to be kept private. Miss USA directors destroy contestants?


    Every article will point out that she will have been fired by a Playboy bunny and gay activist. Many will imply that she was fired for giving an honest answer that intolerant gay activists hated.


    You can line up the facts however you want. The reporters will line them up to sell their product.

    (Try to say you fired her for lying. Will everyone that’s never lied please raise their hands?)

    Most readers share Miss Prejean’s opinion. Most of your potential viewers will too.


    Good luck with the Nielsen ratings after that.

    I can see the headlines after that: Miss USA Pageant: You’re Fired.


    I’m sure the reporters will remember how Trump likes controvery to promote Miss USA pageants. Keep stretching this one out. We’ll see how that works out for you.


    Will the public approve of beautiful, 21-year-old Carrie Prejean’s vilification, one that the directors took part in?


    *This* controversy is casting a pall over the pageant.

    Why have judges? Why not just let the directors choose the winner, if that’s what they’re going to do anyway?

    in support of carrie prejeans comments, homo sickness is just that, sick. god ended the world once for that and if this heathen bunch of homo sickos keeps it up, he will do it again. homos are sickos period.

    It is very refreshing to hear of a young person who is so strong in her beliefs she isn’t afraid to speak her mind whether “politically ” correct or not. If she loses her crown, at least she hasn’t lost her self worth. She was asked a question and she answered it honestly, not just what the powers that be wanted to hear, but what she felt in her heart. If she was my daughter, I would be proud.

    Republicans have poopypants.

    Type in ‘Shanna Moakler nude photos’ into Google and you get an eyeful of what real naked pictures are all about. No arms (or panties) covering anything… much more enjoyable then the Prejean pictures which show you about the same amount as her publicity photos.

  7. Tangito on May 10th, 2009 5:08 am

    Miss California should soon become Ex-Miss California!
    The X stands for X rated. She’s a fool for lieing on her application.

    Good-bye, Carrie!

  8. C. Mellon on May 10th, 2009 7:56 am

    She lied!!! Leave the gay issues out, (they only brought her lies to the surface), but she lied on multiple applications regarding nudity. If she can lie about that, (I think most people would remember having nude photos taken), who knows what else she is covering up. She doesn’t deserve the title.

  9. seasoned on May 10th, 2009 9:17 am

    It is MY understanding that her BACK was to the camera. GIVE ME A BREAK! WHO would truly consider that a “nude photo”? And such pictures may have been taken of EVERYONE! Granted, most may have been babies, but that is it. She obviously didn’t lie. It was an INNOCENT photo, like the famous coppertone one! BTW I am middle aged. Photos, such as these, weren’t considered x-rated, or even really nude, even THEN!

    As for that famous question about homosexual “sex”, PH had NO right to even SPEAK of such things on the show. There would be a LOT of reasons for that. HECK, they may one day ask what party the person is affiliated with, and reject any non democrats.

    Although a question, and NOT necessarily the same question, has historically been asked, it is supposed to be a beauty competition. Frankly, I think prejean is prettier than the one that won.

    What right does a homosexual have to judge such a contest anyway? Should we replace them with dogs? Maybe THEN they can choose the contestants based on whether or not they like some kibble that the contestants can carry! If some buff and handsome male were a contestant, would PH have voted for HIM?

    Want to have a good look at Shanna Moakler…. all you have to do is google “Shanna Moakler nude photos”. And they say the pageant directors were “shocked at Carrie pictures.

    What a bunch of slime balls.

  11. Jaime on May 10th, 2009 11:43 am

    Does she deserve all the crap that she’s been getting?
    Well lets look at it in a different light.
    She received numerous request for interviews which are probably well paid.
    She became a spokesperson for an Anti-gay rights organization (also well compensated).
    She is more well known than the actual person who won.
    She may actually right a book.

    I honestly could care less what her opinions are. But when somebody becomes a spokesperson for an organization, he/she embodies that same organization. It is no longer just her opinion that matters here.

    The same concept goes for Miss California and Miss USA runner up titles, she is suppose to represent them and not her personal agenda.

    The right to Free Speech is not a one way street, I have a right to ridicule your stupid comments.

  12. Steve Leong on May 10th, 2009 1:22 pm

    Why all the chatter.. Prejean lost, Ms. North Carolina WON! Praise Ms. North Carolina, and enough about Prejean.
    .
    What one sows, so shall they reap…including “DISCRIMINATION’. Prejean may look beautiful, but true beauty comes from the compassion one sows from the inside out.

    God created Gays for God’s reason…cure the world’s overpopulation, bring loving parents to childeren abandoned by Straights…gotta trust in God’s plan. Have faith in God!

  13. Allan on May 10th, 2009 3:04 pm

    Keep exercising your free speech rights. Thank you very much. Most of you have been extremely informative regarding the acceptable, politically correct ways to express publicly mainstream anti-gay loathing.

    As has been shown, while it’s very easy and free to speak at any time anyone wishes (except on the the O’Reilly show: “Shut up!”), it’s very difficult to speak publicly as the representative for a state, potentially a nation, at the beauty queen level.

    Ambassador-speak is a strange language all its own, even for beauty queens. The U.S. Ambassador to a foreign nation won’t be trapped into representing a position on an issue that is highly controversial in the U.S. They will speak of the current administration’s position, acknowledge controversy, and move on. They will not share what they personally believe, what their family believes, or what the church they go to believes. They will not abuse the moment (or their position) by choosing to advance their own personal agenda.

    It just won’t happen, no matter what the question is or who asks it. It’s an art. Mastering that art is required to get the job. During an oral interview, it is intentional to ask provocative or controversial questions simply to test this skill.

    In this case, each contestant had a copy of all of the previously approved questions that could have been asked, and they each had time to craft their answers in advance. Already behind on points coming into this oral questioning, Carrie lost the job by failing to come up with an honest, yet ambassadorial, response.

    “Miss U.S.A. represents all Americans, whether they are single or married. The same-gender marriage issue is being ruled on in courts and debated in legislatures and discussed by religions and by millions of Americans. It’s a complex issue and if I am chosen, Miss U.S.A. will be working on Special Olympics, not same-gender marriage issues.”

    How’s that paragraph for honest yet ambassadorial? Sucks, but still I hope you get my point.

  14. thomasALEX on May 10th, 2009 5:11 pm

    This has nothing to do with your ignorance against Gay Marriage. The fact is She broke her Contract in two different parts. All contestants signed the Contract, it is only fair to void hers in response.

  15. Good for Carrie on May 10th, 2009 7:47 pm

    Mario Lavandeira certainly reaped what he sowed. He just didn’t realize how fertile the ground was. Good for her and our right to free speech.

  16. Aramara on May 11th, 2009 1:44 pm

    Let her go! She spoke her mind! Its what her family taught her…You cant blame her that prejudism is strong in her family and like she said “In my country” yes, thats the United States…This doesnt exist!

    She the front runner for prejudism in the USA…Your my ROLEMODLE PREJUDISM RULES!!! 🙂

  17. donkeykong on May 11th, 2009 3:27 pm

    Gay folks are mentally ill and should be afforded treatment. The lunatic who posed the question to her had an agenda. When is it that homosexuality became the norm and morality became something to be condemned? Watch our country go down the tubes. No morals, no sense, everyone wants to lay on their gay fat asses and let Obama pay their way with the working people’s money. I think she should run for president!

    BTW, Aramara is an idiot.

  18. olivia on May 11th, 2009 4:01 pm

    DonkeyKong – It is people like you who make me fear for the state of the country, not homosexuals.

  19. Chris on May 11th, 2009 4:19 pm

    anyone who defends this bimbo is an absolute moron.

    Just like Wallace in the 60’s, history will judge Prejean harshly as well as anyone else who tries to limit the freedom of a group of human beings be they black, white, gay, or straight.

  20. Good for Carrie on May 12th, 2009 12:57 am

    Oh, the race card again.

    I think that’s #3 from the gay book of activist retorts.

    Following:
    #1 Bash religion…. that word marriage really scares them. They don’t really want it but it bugs them that heterosexuals have a centuries old definition for their partnership that implies more than a hedonistic sexual pairing.

    Litmus Test:
    Ask a gay if they would be happy if the word marriage would disappear ???
    Ask a straight person????
    It’s Hetrophobia.

    #2 The word homophobia. Mean to be the insult insult when you run out of intelligent responses.

  21. Jaime on May 13th, 2009 5:02 pm

    #1 Bash Religion.
    Why the hell would anyone need to BASH RELIGION if its not the fundamentalists who keep shoving it down peoples throats.
    Guess what else is an abomination? ADULTERY.
    Christians should also use the same political strength in preventing adulterers from remarrying. Of course, that would be just wishful thinking. Who knows how many adulterers are actually devout Christians. That’s like shooting yourself in the foot.

    Divorce rate in the US stand at 50% for first marriages, 67% for second marriages, and 74% for third marriages.
    Hardly the core of American Society. It’s more like the cause for thousands of broken homes.

    I for one do not want the word marriage to disappear, but i strongly believe in separation of church and state.

  22. Good for Carrie on May 14th, 2009 12:55 am

    For reference: I am not religious and very liberal.

    Divorce rate is pretty insignificant compared to the effects of birth rate.

    Have a look at this. I’m not implying anything about Islam so put away the race card and I admit this has been dramatized for propaganda reasons but isn’t the math as valid anyway. I believe homosexuality is wrong just as I believe that heterosexual couples who just prefer not to have children are make a big mistake. Even though I’m not religious I found this quote kind of appropriate: “God is forgiving… Nature is a B____H”

  23. John Taylor on May 16th, 2009 3:06 am

    Yes, take away her crown – and give it to Perez Hilton! It’s about time we had a “queen” for a queen!

  24. doug on June 10th, 2009 8:38 pm

    She, as many Americans, has lost her right to voice her own opinion. It did not matter what she said. If she had said she was for gay marriage, she would have been scorned for that too. It is sad that people cannot voice their opinion in the land of the free.

  25. Common Sense on July 21st, 2009 8:52 pm

    Miss California USA IS exactly that, a bunch of gay agenda pushing idiots. If they want to push their agenda on everyone then let them start their own drag queen contest. They have pretty much ruined this contest already though. She was fired for her beliefs no matter what anyone says. She’s to good for that GAY pageant anyways. BAN THE MISS CALIFORNIA USA PAGEANT!
