Carrie Prejean Wants Name Cleared; Threatens Lawsuit

The war of words between the controversial and recently dispatched Miss California, Carrie Prejean, and the organization is becoming a game of legal chicken.

No one's showing signs of blinking, either.

The latest drama? The 22-year-old says she is gonna give the Miss California USA officials one last chance to clear her name - or she's gonna sue them.

In a letter Prejean's attorney just fired off to the lawyer representing the Miss California pageant honcho Keith Lewis, the attorney says Lewis defamed Carrie by making the embattled beauty queen seem uncooperative and difficult to deal with.

The letter also accused Lewis of using Carrie to push a gay agenda. He did not address Donald Trump's observation that Carrie treated people like $h!t.

Very Pretty Prejean

The best part? Carrie's Prejean's lawyer says Keith Lewis had no right to release the 22-year-old's "confidential medical information" - i.e. her boob job.

The letter claims that Carrie has suffered "severe emotional distress" as a result of her treatment by the pageant association and its officials.

If Lewis doesn't recant his comments, Carrie's lawyer promises he will file suit.

The pageant's lawyers have threatened to sue back if she doesn't back off.

Miss California Officials May Sue Carrie Prejean

In the wake of her long-awaited dismissal last week, disgraced, former Miss California USA Carrie Prejean has threatened to sue pageant officials for defamation.

Well, the pageant's lawyer fired off a letter to Carrie's lawyer, threatening to sue the 22-year-old lightning rod for what he calls "churlish insolent misbehavior."

The letter details alleged misdeeds which led to Carrie Prejean getting fired.

Those incidents include the facts that:

  • Carrie lied in saying publicly that she did not ink a book deal.
  • Carrie wrongfully turned down 39 pageant appearances since May 12.
  • Carrie Prejean defamed pageant honcho Keith Lewis when she said he "pressured her to appear in Playboy." Lewis says he merely passed on the offer to Prejean, and never advocated the beauty queen take it.

  • The letter also states that the self-serving moron was canned last week because of "intolerable misbehavior," citing "hostile communications from Carrie."
  • The letter threatens this: "If Carrie Prejean wants to assert in public that she was courteous, cooperative or professional in her conduct as Miss California USA, the history of her churlish insolent misbehavior can be presented."

The lawyer demands that Carrie stop making defamatory remarks and recant the earlier ones she already made ... or else. Stay tuned there.

All we have to say is yay, Tami Farrell!

Carrie Prejean Offered Big Bucks to Bang Sarah Palin

Carrie Prejean did not attend an event for the Special Olympics this weekend because she feared it would be awkward, now that she's no longer Miss California. (Way to put the kids ahead of your personal feelings, Carrie!)

But Hustler has come up with an idea that will make the gay-hating pageant queen feel right at home: an intimate meeting with fellow conservative beauty Sarah Palin.

Sort of.

The adult film company has offered Prejean $500,000 to appear in a movie titled You're Nailin' Palin. TMZ has released the actual letter sent to Carrie from Hustler. It reads:

Your scene would feature some hot girl-on-girl action with adult performer Lisa Ann, who's portraying the former VP candidate. Don't worry, you'll also have an opportunity to enjoy some opposite sex.

Should Carrie accept the offer? Think of all the gay marriage protest signs she could buy with the cash!

Prejean PicYou Betcha!

Will Carrie Prejean and Sarah Palin soon come together for a meeting of the minds and bodies? Let's hope so!

Tami Farrell Will Try to Unify California

The state of California is in danger of going bankrupt, while tensions remain high between fans of the Los Angeles Dodgers and fans of the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.

But, not to worry Golden Staters, Tami Farrell is on the way!

In an interview with The Today Show this morning, the woman who has taken over as Miss California - following the firing of Carrie Prejean - said she'd try her best to bring the state together.

"I was a little hesitant to be stepping into the line of fire, I'll be honest," she said. "There's been divisive questions. I've been brought in to try and unify our state. I'm not being silenced for my beliefs, but I just think that this isn't a battle that anybody can win, so I'm going to do my best to just refocus it on some of the other aspects."

New Miss California

Meanwhile, pageant director Keith Lewis sat alongside Farrell and commented on Prejean's dismissal.

He said the narrow-minded, immature beauty queen missed "tens and tens and tens" of appearances, while insisting that she wasn't dethroned for her political views.

"I think it's time for us to move back this political platform that she was fired because of her beliefs, because that dog just won't hunt," Lewis said.

As our staff tried to calmly explain earlier, Lewis compared this decision to the laying off an employee at any job.

"I think if you tell your boss, 'I'm not gonna do the job, I'm gonna do whatever I want, you can't tell me what I’m gonna do,' I think that you expect that your boss is gonna say to you, You know what? You're probably not supposed to be in this job anymore.

"It was just very difficult for us, and we tried to meet halfway, and it was obvious that wasn't going to happen. Finally, there was a point when the organization really had to stand up and say, You know what? It's time for us to move on and get back to the business of beauty."

How did Carrie react to her firing? She mentioned America, misunderstood the concept of "freedom of speech" and referenced God four times in just a few sentences.

"I am proud to be an American, and blessed to have had the opportunity to exercise my freedom of speech," Prejean wrote in a statement. "I am excited and looking forward to where God leads me in the future. I know He has big plans for me. I am proud to be the strong woman God has molded me to be. I will always stand for the truth, respectfully, and never back down. Thank you and God bless."

Carrie Prejean found out she was fired from the media

Carrie Prejean is an Immature, Self-Serving Moron; Emails Uncovered

Hahahaha, Carrie Prejean supporters. Ur so gr8.

Sorry, we're just trying to speak the language of the woman you hold in such high regard, based on a few sentences she uttered.

After Prejean was fired as Miss California yesterday, the inarticulate beauty queen fired back at the pageant. She claimed that the decision was purely political and that she had done everything the organization had asked of her.

Carrie is lying.

Fox News has uncovered a series of emails between Prejean and Miss California director Keith Lewis. In the first, Carrie makes it clear that she expects to be notified of ALL offers that come her way. But does she do it in a calm, reasonable, mature manner? Not even close:

Email3

Carrie supporters have erroneously claimed that the pageant was requiring her to take on unreasonable tasks, as a means to forcing her out. One reader suggested Prejean was being made to "do porn" and enter a "hot warzone."

But this email makes it clear just how much Prejean is a bitch did not grasp the concept that she was the employee of a company; as long as she represented them via the crown on her head, she had no right telling her employers what she was planning to do.

Incredibly, Lewis handled the outburst with class and professionalism. He wrote back:

Lewis

Then, of course, there's the accusation that Miss California officials were somehow forcing Prejean to pose for Playboy. Once again, we turn to electronic mail exchanges as proof to the contrary. Such an offer appears to be the topic of conversation below:

New email

OF COURSE THE PAGEANT CAN MAKE MONEY OFF CARRIE'S APPEARANCES! SHE WORKS FOR IT!

For a final time, to Prejean and her supporters: the First Amendment protects one from being imprisoned for speaking one's mind. It has absoluetly nothing to do with an employee being obligated to behave in a manner that is consistent with her employer's requests.

Otherwise, no one would ever get fired. Hey, you can't let me go for revealing company secrets to our rival? What about freedom of speech?!?

That's all that was ever going on here. Carrie Prejean did not follow the rules stipulated in a contract that she signed. It's not complicated.

Carrie Prejean Fires Back, Attacks Pageant Officials for Playboy Offer

Carrie Prejean has earned respect, from a certain segment of the population, for speaking her mind.

As you might expect, she's doing so again in the face of today's unexpected firing as Miss California USA.

When asked by TMZ why she had her title stripped, Prejean played the political card again:

"What's behind this I think is a political debate. They don't agree with the stance that I took [on Prop 8]. Shanna [Moakler] is trying to bash me. They don't like me. From day one they wanted me out and they got what they wanted."

But, if that was actually the case, why wouldn't Prejean have been fired weeks ago? Heck, Moakler doesn't even work for the organization anymore!

Poor Prejean

Sorry, Tami Farrell, but you'll never make the sort of headlines your Miss California predecessor has become famous for.

Prejean also complains that pageant official Keith Lewis approached her last month about take two gigs: an appearance on I'm a Celebrity ... Get Me Out of Here! and an offer to pose in Playboy for $140,00; Carrie rejected both.

Lewis, meanwhile, says he simply made Prejean aware that the options existed, which she had insisted he do for all incoming offers.

Why did Carrie even make this information public? To make the pageant seem like it trying to exploit her fame? If that was the case, why would they want her out of there, as she claimed above?!?

As for Donald Trump, the man that actually gave Prejean the axe?

“I told Carrie she needed to get back to work and honor her contract with the Miss California USA Organization and I gave her the opportunity to do so," Trump said, referring to his much-publicized press conference. "Unfortunately it just doesn’t look like it is going to happen and I offered Keith [Lewis] my full support in making this decision. Carrie is a beautiful young woman and I wish her well as she pursues her other interests.”

Prejean claims she's done all the pageant has asked of her - but TMZ uncovered the following email she wrote on May 29 to Lewis and others:

"You do not cooperate with me, and you pick and chose [sic] the the [sic] things YOU want me to do. That is not happening anymore. Stop speaking for me. I have MY own voice."

This is what Carrie has continually failed to realize: NO, you do not have your own voice as Miss California. You are representing an organization, one whose contract, which outlined this fact, you signed. What is so difficult to grasp about that?!?

Our heads hurt. It's time to turn it over to our readers. Chime in with a comment and let us know your take on this situation!

Donald Trump to Carrie Prejean: You’re Fired!!!

Even Donald Trump has grown tired of Carrie Prejean.

While Bible thumpers and gay marriage haters continue to stand behind the beauty queen, based on one mumbled response during the Miss USA Pageant, we can officially report that her time has come:

Prejean has been fired as Miss California for breach of contract.

Sources connected with the pageant have told TMZ that Trump took away Carrie's crown because she continually violated her contract by not receiving clearance to give various interviews and appear at various events.

Moreover, Prejean was MIA for appearances she had been booked for on behalf of Miss California.

In reference to the woman that claims to live by the Bible, Trump said Carrie treats everyone "like $hit." Hmmm, is there a verse people can cite to defend her for being a bitch?

Carrie Prejean FIRED!

FINALLY: After posing half-naked, lying about her photos and ignoring her contractual obligations as Miss California, Carrie Prejean has been fired from the post.

As much as Christian Conservatives will bitch and moan, all indications are that the decision is purely based on Prejean's contract snubbing; NOT her political/moral views.

“This was a business decision, based solely on contract violations,” one of the producers of the pageant  said in documents obtained by FOX News. “After our press conference in New York we had hoped we would be able to forge a better working relationship. However, since that time it has become abundantly clear that Carrie has no desire to fulfill her obligations under our contract and work together.”

Step up, Tami Farrell, you're the new Miss California USA. (Thank goodness!)

What's your reaction to the Carrie Prejean firing?

It's about time!
She's still a role model!
Carrie who?!?

Shanna Moakler Defends Self, Bashes Carrie Prejean

A couple weeks ago, Shanna Moakler resigned her post with the Miss California pageant, citing the lying, manipulative, deceitful ways of winner Carrie Prejean.

Ever since, the former Miss USA champion has faced a mountain of criticism, most referring to her as a hypocrite for calling out Carrie on posing naked. After all, didn't Shanna bare all in Playboy?

"For the people who are like, 'How can you say this? You have this persona, and your personal relationship is a mess, and you posed for Playboy,'" Moakler said to Us Weekly, "I'm not a title holder. I'm not in a contract. I posed for Playboy years after I was a title holder."

That's a good point; though the naked pictorial still gives Moakler slightly shakier ground to stand on.

As for Prejean, please tell us how you really feel about her, Shanna.

Sexy ShannaPrejean Picture

"Carrie is very, very nice when she wants something. And when it's her turn to do her end of the deal, it's very complicated. She's late, she doesn't show up. It's always a problem. I can deal with difficult, but I  can't deal with nasty and she was getting nasty."

Moreover, Moaker says Prejean sent her hurtful emails after the press conference, taunting Shanna and saying she "should be thanking [Prejean] for extending my fifteen minutes."

Moakler also said Carrie sent several biblical quotes "that I felt were inappropriate."

Wait, Prejean tried to impose her personai views on someone else? That doesn't sound like her at all!

Source: Carrie Prejean’s Mom is Gay

The mother of Carrie Prejean might be a lesbian.

Valerie Vetrano tells Star magazine that she and Prejean's mother, Francine Coppola, were involved in a relationship that lasted until the very night Carrie finished second in the Miss USA contest.

"Francine and I dated," Vetrano said, while another source confirmed the affair, saying it never had a chance, due to Coppola's hesitance to be open with her family:

"Francine explained how she was a Christian and that her loved ones would never accept her if she were gay."

Donald Trump and Carrie Prejean

Fortunately for the National Organization of Marriage, Carrie Prejean has not caught gay from her mother.

Reportedly, Carrie had no idea about her mother's sexual orientation, but the friend quoted above thinks her reaction to gay marriage might be different if Prejean's mom had been honest.

"Valerie feels that if Francine had just been open about her sexuality with her family, Carrie would have a better understanding of what gay people have to go through. They just want equal rights.”

Kristen Dalton: Carrie Prejean is Great For Publicity

With all the controversy surrounding Carrie Prejean, it's easy to forget that the lightning rod did not actually win the Miss USA pageant a couple of weeks ago.

That honor went to Kristen Dalton.

Immediately after the North Carolina beauty took home the crown, the spotlight turned to Prejean and her comments about same-sex marriage. But Dalton has no complaints, telling E! Online that all the commotion has actually been a good thing.

"I think it's great for the Miss Universe Organization, it's given us a lot of publicity," Dalton said. "A lot of people will be watching this Miss USA pageant next year."

Wonderfully PC answer. She should go into politics.

And as for the embattled Miss California, Dalton says the outspoken Prejean "was friendly to everybody, so I don't really think anyone has a problem with her."

As for her views on a certain divisive political issue?

"Everybody has the right to their own opinion," Kristen Dalton said, "Me personally, I think that everybody deserves equal rights, it's really as simple as that."

Carrie Prejean, Kristen Dalton

Donald Trump's Miss Universe Organization insists it didn't take issue with Prejean's comments but that she appeared to be shirking Miss California duties.

That, and the topless photos she took when she was 17.

Although dethroned Miss Nevada 2007 Katie Rees feels that Trump created a double standard by keeping Prejean but stripping her own crown due to older party pics that surfaced after she won, Dalton sees a difference between the two situations.

"If you look at the photos, they're completely different," the reigning Miss USA said. "Carrie's were modeling photos, and Katie's were in action."

She means girl-on-girl action, in case any of you are unfamiliar.

"Donald Trump approved [the photos]," Kristen Dalton added. "He's the owner of this organization and I fully support what he thinks is best.

"And you know, [Carrie Prejean] has the opportunity to go back to California and try to be the best Miss California USA that she can be."

More importantly: Who would you rather ...
