“The directors of the Miss California USA pageant are looking into whether title holder Carrie Prejean violated her contract by working with a national group opposed to gay marriage and by posing semi-nude when she was a teenage model.
Pageant spokesman Roger Neal said Tuesday that it appears Prejean has run afoul of several sections of the 12-page contract that all prospective contestants were required to sign before competing in the November state contest.
The detailed document prohibits the titular Miss California from making personal appearances, giving interviews or making commercials without permission from pageant officials. In the last 10 days, Prejean has made televised appearances at her San Diego church and on behalf of the National Organization for Marriage, a group opposed to same-sex marriage.
The contact also contains a clause asking participants to say whether they have conducted themselves “in accordance with the highest ethical and moral standards.” As an example, it asks if they have ever been photographed nude or partially nude. “
And that’s not to mention Kiddie Porn — which is the case if the above photo (said to be the most tame of the bunch) was indeed taken when Prejean was pre-adult.
“As you can see from the contract, she violated multiple items,” Neal said in an e-mail to The Associated Press.
A photo of Prejean wearing only pink panties with her back turned to the camera appeared Monday on the gossip blog theDirty.com. She issued a statement early Tuesday saying she posed for the shot while as a 17-year-old model and objecting to its release as an attempt to belittle her religious faith: “I am a Christian, and I am a model. Models pose for pictures, including lingerie and swimwear photos.”
And we all know much Jesus loved lingerie and swimwear.
Needless to say it could have been worse. We all remember “Dr.” Laura Schlesinger don’t we.
As you can see Laura was quite the libertine in her pre-radio-scold days. And quite the fag-hag too, her friends recall. But on radio she suddenly decided we were all “a biological error” and paid dearly for saying so. Recently she’s made statements to the effec that she has no objection to same-sex couples in long-term relationships, which are in her new (old) view a good thing.
Carrie Prefab, however, isn’t likely to alter her uh. . .position.
Doncha just love the “I have no comment” about her rack?
Shortly afterwards pageant officials revealed that they had paid to have them done, as Carrie requested. So they can scarcely “take the high road” on this PR disaster, or claim any species of “integrity” in promoting Prejean, or any other “contestant” in this T&A show.
Clearly “Miss Universe” lacks the soigne sophistication of Earl Carroll’s Vanities.
“Prejean spokeswoman Melany Ethridge said she could not comment on the contract because she was unfamiliar with its contents. Ethridge said she had not heard the pageant directors were reviewing it.
Prejean, a San Diego native who attends San Diego Christian College, was named the first runner-up to Miss North Carolina in the Miss USA pageant April 19. Her response to a question about legalizing same-sex marriage, and subsequent statements that her answer favoring limiting marriage to a man and a woman may have cost her the title, have made her a media sensation.
The California pageant contract gives pageant officials almost unlimited control over the title holder’s activities, including the right to terminate her reign for breaching its provisions. “
Well she’ll always have Maggie Gallagher to fall back on, won’t she?
That failing, how about entre’acte of the dogfights in Tijuana?
Meanwhile, this one’s for you Carrie.
