The Internet is buzzing over a recently-released photo of Carrie Prejean topless.

Reportedly, there are a slew of other naked Prejean pics on the way, as well.

Putting aside one’s religious beliefs or stance on gay marriage, the rules of the Miss California Pageant are clear. In each contestant’s contract, it states that one is prohibited from being photographed “in a state of partial or total nudity.”

Taking away Carrie’s crown would not be without precedent: Vanessa Williams was stripped of her 1984 Miss USA title after racy pics she posed for two years earlier were leaked.

With this in mind, you tell us: Should Carrie Prejean lose her Miss California crown?

** UPDATE: Pageant spokesman Roger Neal has released copies of the detailed contract all contestants sign before entering the contest. It prohibits Miss California from making personal appearances, speaking to reporters or making commercials without permission from pageant officials.

Of course, in the last two weeks, Carrie has gone ahead with televised appearances at her local church in San Diego, as well as given interviews on behalf of the National Organization for Marriage.


The contract also possesses a clause asking participants to state whether they have conducted themselves “in accordance with the highest ethical and moral standards.” It specifically asks if they have ever been photographed nude or partially nude.

This has nothing whatsoever to do with Prejean’s gay marriage answer, but “you can see from the contract, she violated multiple items,” Neal told the Associated Press.

We, again, ask readers to put aside religious beliefs or bickering and simply consider this issue on the grounds of pageant rules. Should Prejean keep her title or not?
