Well, folks, it turns out that gay marriage opponent and Miss America loser Miss California, Carrie Prejean, isn’t getting her just desserts. The Miss America pageant’s owner and worst hairstyle-haver in the world, Donald Trump, did what was not done for Vanessa Williams: he let her keep her role as Miss America, saying the images weren’t racy enough to warrant her dethroning.
Nice hypocrisy there, Donald. Shanna Moakler, reality TV star, former Miss USA and the head of the pageant isn’t happy with that decision and has stepped down as a result of it:
“I cannot with a clear conscience move forward supporting and promoting the Miss Universe Organization when I no longer believe in it, or the contracts I signed committing myself as a youth,” Moakler said.
“I want to be a role model for young women with high hopes of pageantry, but now feel it more important to be a role model for my children. I am sorry and hope I have not let any young supporters down but wish them the best of luck in fulfilling their dreams,” she said.
CNN reports that Carrie Prejean claims that the last of the photos, published just before the decision, were
made without her knowledge during a modeling photo shoot. She said wind must have accidentally blown her unbuttoned top open.
Carrie must think all Americans are as dumb as she is if she believes we’ll buy that.
Anyway…can this story die yet? Apparently not:
Oh, and check out the argument on MSNBC in the video above. Real passion around this topic!
