Carrie Prejean Fires Back, Attacks Pageant Officials for Playboy Offer

by at . Comments

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.

Prejean Press Conference

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!

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 $140,000; 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!


One last thing. Sig, get your facts straight. "Homos" as you call us love women and think they are beautiful, at least a lot of us do. I cannot tell you how many women have spent hours shopping with me and told me about all of their husband's shortcomings.


Dale Clark looks like a loonie to me. Hopefully this person doesn't own a gun.


I applaud Carrie for her character and wish great success. We obviously cant say the same for Trump and Hilton question: why are there homos judging a lady beauty contest in the first place???? They hate women ! Why are they even allowed in the organization???


It is very obvious from your article that you agree she should have been axed. Personally, I think you are bias and I support Carrie 100%. What's your stand on the hate-filled assult that Perez and Monaker took on her? Call that unbiased? I think the pagent wanted to distance themselves from appearing to discriminate against her for her religious views and just added up their assults on her until they believe you, the "media" (and I do use that word loosely) would be on their side. Finny thing, though. I think all of you were already there!! Shame on you. She answered honestly and fiarly. Was she supposed to have lied to be politically THAT the only way to win these days? Silly game. I won't watch any more of the pagents, that's for sure.


1. Prejean is a lier, an immature, and nothing but good at playing the innocent game with her not so innocent cards. 2. She is practicing her freedom of speach, why can't gay & lesbian practice their right to get marry?


Miss CA...Who would want to be a puppet for immorality. CA's become a cesspool of perversion. Carrie, they're right, you don't fit the bill. Next year CA will be voting to legalize marriage between a man and his dog.


God has ordained and orginated marriage between a man and woman not man and man or woman and woman. Ge 2:24 Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and they shall become one flesh. Ro 7:2 For the woman who has a husband is bound by the law to her husband as long as he lives. But if the husband dies she is released from the law of her husband. Carrie is right on with the truth. Any other marriage is rejected and condemned by God as is clearly stated in Romans chapter 1. Carrie I rejoice with you that you have been accounted worthy to suffer for the Lords sake since God sanctioned marriage between man and woman I hope you are rejoicing because you are blessed when you are reviled and persecuted for righteousness sake, rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in heaven Mat 5:11. I'm with you all the way Dean, not stupid and Dale Clark.


She is a liar and has been lying from the start.
She cares about nobody but herself and she got exactly what she deserved. Now,I wonder how she is going to pay back the money to the Miss USA orginazation? That's right if you are removed all money, prizes and crown have to be returned.
Now Carrie better hurry if she wants to tell more trash to the public because she only has about 12 minutes left.


Carrie is a spoiled, self-centered little girl who has used her physical beauty to seduce, cajole, or demand from others the financial and ego benefits she wants for herself. She needs to grow up. If she demands that ALL notices of incoming offers be forwarded to her, she can't act indignant and self-righteous and complain about the types of offers that appear. I suspect Playboy as a matter of business sends offers to pose to any news-worthy female with the proper attributes. It would be interesting to see a list of recent offers made by Playboy and the dollar amount of the offers. Now Carrie is free to negotiate with Playboy for more money, star in a movie where she can pose topless for Jesus, and look for other poor naive suckers who will be so enthralled by her image (artificial as it may be) they will fawn over her until age and gravity show her who is boss.


This was retaliation 4 her honest answer.they tried 2 fire her 4 racey pics, but Lewis approached her about posing 4 playboy. Can u say HYpPOCRIT?
Y hasn't there been any backlash at Perez (the super HOMO queen) 4 the HATE-FILLED INTOLERENT COMMENTS HE HAS MADE ABOUT CARRIE?

Carrie Prejean Quotes

I think it's great that Americans are able to choose one or the other. We live in a land that you can choose same-sex marriage or opposite marriage and, you know what, in my country and my family I think that I believe that a marriage should be between a man and a woman. No offense to anyone out there but that's how I was raised and that's how I think it should be between a man and a woman.

Carrie Prejean

Marriage is good. There is something special about unions of husband and wife. Unless we bring men and women together, children will not have mothers and fathers.
