Shanna Moakler Welcomes Carrie Prejean into Miss California Family

by at . Comments

Earlier today, at a press conference announcing the confirmation of Carrie Prejean as Miss California, that pageant's co-director said there would be peace in the Middle East if we sent Donad Trump over there.

Keith Lewis may have been exagerrating, but The Donald does appear to have brokered talks between Shanna Moakler and Prejean.

An Awful Human Being

"Thanks to Donald Trump, we were able to have a meeting with Miss Prejean and her family alone for the first time since the pageant," Moakler, the co-executive director of the pageant, told People. "We were able to sit down and communicate and vent our frustrations. I am confident that she will stay true to the contract. I'm looking forward to returning to L.A. and starting fresh." 

Moakler added that the problem her and other officials had with Prejean was NOT related to her well-known beliefs on gay nuptials.

"Our issue was never about her opinions about same-sex marriage or the pictures. Our issue was with her complying with our agreement. When you sign the contract, we ask you to show us everything you are being offered. That wasn't happening. After the pageant, we lost control of our titleholder."

An understandable issue, no doubt.

Now, Moakler says, the air has been cleared and everyone can move forward. It's all she and Lewis ever wanted in the first place.

"She's part of our family. We care about her. But she's only 21 and we felt like she was being exploited. These people were not around for Miss USA, but they sure were afterward. They jumped on her bandwagon and tried to exploit her. We are trying to protect her."

Adios!!!!
I wouldn't be surprised if Moakler was asked to step down and given the "opportunity" to resign. Her behavior was deplorable.

Moakler was Miss USA 1995 and later a Playboy Playmate in 2001. I know because she was my favorite Playmate for several years. Miss December 2001 Funny how they never mention it...

Miss California has gotten herself so much publicity over this. Her excuse didn't make much sense though. http://www.howlegit.com/link/l...

All must bow to the Trump. This is funny stuff. Prejean and Moakler both have to grovel to Trump to keep their jobs. Trump gets publicity no matter what. Ha ha.
