TMZ broke the story this afternoon:
We’ve learned “biblically correct” Carrie Prejean will lose her Miss California USA crown today because she doesn’t play well with others. … Carrie is getting her walking papers this afternoon.
They were right.
Donald Trump is quoted in the NYTimes story:
I told Carrie she needed to get back to work and honor her contract
The National Organization for Marriage stands by their spokesmodel:
“Hollywood hates Carrie. First they abuse her, then they try to get her to recant, then they threw mud, and now they are doing what they wanted to do from day one: Get rid of Carrie.
This cover story about a contract dispute doesn’t pass the smell test. Americans aren’t fooled that easily. God knows, and we know, the truth about Carrie: She’s a young woman of great beauty who chose truth over the glittering tiara that Hollywood offers,” said Brian Brown, Executive Director for NOM. “Of course they will try to punish her, but we know she will be fine in the end, because her values are in the right place.”
“Hollywood will dance its tribal war dance over her body–the hatred generated against her has been extraordinary–but Carrie will be free to define her own mission and message from now on. Congratulations,” stated Maggie Gallagher, President for NOM.
We just got off the phone with deposed Miss California USA Carrie Prejean — and she says the pageant was trying to whore her out to Playboy.
Prejean claims pageant honcho Keith Lewis actually asked her last month if she would take two gigs — appearing on “I’m a Celebrity … Get Me Out of Here!” and Playboy. Prejean says Lewis told her Playboy offered $140,000 for her to pose semi-nude. She rejected both offers.
A few minutes ago we talked to Lewis who said he was not pushing her to take either gig — but merely passing the offers along. Lewis said Prejean had insisted they not turn anything down without running it by her.
Yuck. I guess we’re left to believe whatever we want to believe.
Me, I see gay and lesbian people continuing in their quest for inclusion in the military, in places of worship and for legally sanctioned committed relationships. While the protect marriage crowd rallies behind a woman who lied about posing for nudie photos and fired for being a no show at work.
