When Shanna Moakler stood next to Donald Trump at this week’s press conference, as he announced the fate of Carrie Prejean, Moakler says she had every intention of remaining on Miss California’s side.

But “the turning point for me, I guess, was when I was watching the Today show and she was sitting there continuing to lie,” Moakler, who resigned as a pageant official yesterday, told Ryan Seacret this morning. “And it’s obvious to everybody that the lying is still going on. I just couldn’t stand behind her.”

You’re far from alone, Shanna.

This is awkward. Shanna Moakler watches Donald Trump milk every ounce of publicity out of the Carrie Prejean controversy.

Considering her fame, attention and growing, narrow-minded fan base, Moakler added that Prejean was “basically rewarded for lying.”

Listeners to Seacrest’s radio show could hear Moakler get especially emotional as she talked about stepping away from her post.

“How am I supposed to aggressively promote someone that I don’t even know if they’re being truthful with me,” she asked. “I work hard. I worked hard on that pageant and this has been a very, very difficult decision for me because I love the Miss California organization and I love my family over there and the friends that I’ve made and the commitment that I had. I just don’t think the situation right now is right.”
