Katie Rees Cries Foul Over Carrie Prejean Double Standard

by at . Comments

Remember Katie Rees?

The former Miss Nevada 2007 was stripped of her crown when a series of racy photos of her were leaked soon after the coronation.

Now, following the announcement that Carrie Prejean won't receive the same punishment after her set of topless pics were released, Rees is speaking out. She told E! News the development is a "huge double standard."

"Semi-nude photos are semi-nude photos," Rees said, comparing the topless lingerie pics of Prejean with her own images (linked to above).

In December 2006, however, Miss Universe owner Donald Trump - the same man that said this is the "21st century" and the pics of Prejean were mostly "lovely" - deemed Rees' photos inappropriate and stripped Katie of her crown.

But what about the contracts both Rees and Prejean signed? Each stated that contestants must own up to any history of naked or semi-naked photographs.

Lost amidst Prejean's gay marriage stance is the simple fact that she violated her contract. What's the point of making such documents if there's no incentive to adhere to them?

"I don't know why I am the only one who was punished for their behavior," Rees said. "I was only 19 when those photos were taken of me, and it was me in my personal life, far before I was crowned Miss Nevada. Carrie actually posed for these professional semi-nude photos. I think that's worse."

You're totally right, Katie. But Prejean cited the Bible, said God spoke to her and got narrow-minded Christians on her side. See where you went wrong now?

In the end, Rees has no regrets about how she handled her scandal. As opposed to Prejean, as least she was honest about her past.

"At least when those pictures of me came out, I admitted I was wrong and told young women in America how big of a mistake it was and to be careful because everything can affect your future," she said. "That's more than Carrie has done. She has lied about her age when she took the photos, lied about how many there were and hasn't acknowledged that she was wrong by breaking the contract. I don't think that is a good role model and I hope young women recognize that."

Amen, Katie Rees!

Katie Rees dared to lick a girl (in her personal life), while Carrie Prejean posed for professional, topless photos and then lied about them. Thanks to her exploitation of the Bible, however, Prejean kept her beauty pageant crown.

Katie told the truth and apologized for her actions and said it was wrong but Trump lets a drug addict keep her crown.
Then there is Prejean that has lied about everything when the photos were taken,how many photos and she posed for them.
Katie did not pose for the photos it was a college crazy time.
Katie has every right to have her atty's hit Trump where it counts "in his wallet" this guy is a piece of garbage and he needs to go away and let a respectable person run the Miss USA pageant.

Carrie Prejean is a liar, a hypocrite, a fake and a SORE LOSER! If the Donald was a real man he would have made Carrie publicly apologize to the actual Miss USA, Kristen Dalton, for her comments about how she (Carrie) would have won if not for the question that Perez Hilton asked her. By allowing Carrie Prejean to keep her Miss California title, Donald Trump has endorsed a liar. Nice role model! Now THAT'S FUBAR!

I'm sorry, but for Katie to say that Carrie's pictures are worse is B**lS**t. There is a complete difference in why katie got the boot and carrie didn't. The actions in Katie's photos is what costed her crown. the fact that she was probably drunk, showing her tit(s) off, and licking tits and acting in vulgar lesbian ways. now don't get me wrong, thats fun, but the Pageant demands some standards that katie doesn't have, and posing professionally is completely different than acting overtly sexual in public while your being photographed, and for katie to say carrie is worse proves that her standards are completely FUBAR.
