Any moment now, Tami Farrell may be named Miss California.
The runner-up to Carrie Prejean in that state's most recent beauty pageant is next in line for the crown if officials decide to revoke it from the winner, due to her recently-leaked, semi-nude photos.
In an interview with Access Hollywood last week, Farrell made it clear that she's prepared to take on the incredibly huge responsibility of Miss California if it comes to that. Here are excerpts from the conversation:
On taking over for Carrie Prejean: “I would be honored to represent the state of California if they need me for my responsibilities as first runner-up. I wouldn’t mind stepping into the spotlight.”
On Prejean's anti-gay marriage answer: "The problem is that it’s not just about what she believes, she has signed on for a position as Miss California and she cannot represent the entire state based upon her own beliefs. She can go for that cause as Carrie, but not as Miss California.”
Tami Farrell to Miss California officials: Pick me, choose me, love me!
On the response she would have given Perez Hilton: "I would let the people of each state decide and let the laws be made on that sense. I’m just a simple beauty queen and I think it’s funny that it’s a question scholars and politicians have debated on, and now we’re looking to a beauty queen for the answers.”
On Prejean undergoing breast enhancement surgery: “It surprised me, but I think it’s her personal decision. Honestly, I feel that when she won Miss California, judges fell in love with who she was and I don’t think that she needed to have it.”
On ever getting a boob job herself: “I think I’m good. I’m good with this body.”
