Carrie Prejean was a guest on Larry King Live last night and was quickly at odds with the CNN anchor. Prejean, who agreed to appear on the show to talk about her new book Still Standing, didn’t like the line of questioning by King, who asked about the reason for her recent settlement with the Miss California USA pageant.
According to reports, pageant organizers came into possession of a explicit tape that they threatened to leak. The tape was made by Prejean for her boyfriend when she was a teenager. Speculation is that she backed away from her lawsuit to keep the tape from going public.
Things continue to heat up today because of a new revelation. The ex-boyfriend, the recipient of 15-20 tapes, has come forward to talk about the situation – LISTEN HERE.
King asked, “Why settle since you had a fight to carry on?” She said, “Larry, it’s completely confidential and you’re being inappropriate. Yeah, I think you are being extremely inappropriate right now, and I’m about to leave your show.”
Prejean proceeded to remove her mic shortly after Larry took a viewer call from a man who announced, “Hi, I’m a gay may and I love pageants.” Her agreement prior to the show stated she would not be open to taking any on air phone calls.
After a commercial break, Prejean did return but the conversation from that point on was bland and unremarkable.
