In the last month, we’ve seen a lot more of celebrities and D-listers than we ever wanted, by way of leaked nude photos. We saw the lady lumps of Cassie, Miss California Carrie Prejean, and possibly Rihanna. It’s too much of a coincidence that Cassie, Rihanna, and Carrie were robbed of nude photos within a few weeks of each other. Instead, maybe these women took a page from Heidi
Montag Pratt, who learned early in her career as an attention whore that a picture, any picture, is worth a thousand dollars or more. Perhaps these women, or a team of people close to them, orchestrated these “leaks” in order to boost their publicity. Keep reading »
When Carrie Prejean lost last month’s Miss USA pageant because (some think) she opposed gay marriage, after which she did an ad for the National Organization for Marriage, rather than attending to her Miss California “duties,” she made it pretty clear where her loyalty lies. It makes sense strategically — her anti-gay marriage stance ruined her appeal for many, but it did increase her popularity with a powerful few. Prejean hedged her bets by distancing herself from the Miss California Organization and lining up with those who had her back. She wasn’t going to be a pageant queen forever, after all.
She should have handed over her crown to someone who was interested in fulfilling those Miss California duties — whatever they are — since she had better things to do. But she didn’t and because of that — and Perez Hilton’s relentless campaign against her — Prejean stayed in the spotlight and the inevitable happened. Topless photos! Of a beauty queen! Who believes in God! The hypocrisy! Let the slut-shaming begin! Keep reading »
American beauty pageants are all about the long legs, shiny teeth and not saying anything too dense when asked, “How would you make the world a better place?” But at the Miss Beautiful Morals pageant in Saudi Arabia, there’s no swimsuit competition.
Instead, in that deeply Islamic country where women are covered from head to toe in long robes called abayas, contestants vie to see who is most obedient of her parents. A hundred girls ranging in age from 15 to 25 will compete for the Miss Beautiful Morals crown. The queen wins $2,600, and each runner up wins $1,300. The real prize, those involved in the pageant say, is strengthening their devotion to their families. Keep reading »
Oh, dear. Miss California Carrie Prejean, who made headlines for her answer to a question about gay marriage at last month’s Miss USA pageant, has more secrets spilling out of her closet. First, it was revealed that the Miss California Organization paid for Prejean to get breast implants prior to the Miss USA pageant. Now, a topless photos of the beauty queen have been leaked to The Dirty. Miss USA judge Perez Hilton claims his sources say more photos of Prejean in a state of undress are due to hit the internet. Normally, I’d be like, “Topless? Who cares?” Considering Prejean believes “gay marriage isn’t biblically correct,” I’m amped to holler: “Hypocrite!” Stripping your top off and shooting the camera that come hither look is not what Jesus would do. Click here to see the full photo (safe for work!).
Prejean released a statement: “I am a Christian, and I am a model. Models pose for pictures, including lingerie and swimwear photos. Recently, photos that were taken of me as a teenager have been released surreptitiously to a tabloid website that openly mocks me for my Christian faith. I am not perfect, and I will never claim to be.”
One small problem? This puts Prejean at odds with her contract with the Miss California Organization, which prohibits its representatives for posing for photographs in a state of full or partial nudity. Keep reading »
We’re still reeling from the news that the Miss California Organization paid for contestant Carrie Prejean to get fake ta-tas so she’d have a better chance of winning Miss USA. Tasteless? Yes. Uncommon? Unfortunately, no. We nosed around for other ways to “better” your body without breaking the bank. Keep reading »
Everyone’s still talking about Miss California’s gay marriage comments. Now there’s more drama for 21-year-old beauty queen Carrie Prejean. Apparently, there were some nice perks for her as former Miss California. The state’s pageant organization paid her bill for fake boobs.
Prejean received breast implants paid for by the Miss California Organization just weeks before she competed in the Miss USA pageant, confirmed Shanna Moakler, co-executive director of organization. Shanna told “Access Hollywood” that Carrie wanted breasts implants and the Miss California Organization “supported that decision.” Shanna, herself a former Miss USA and an ex-Playboy Playmate, added, “Breast implants in pageants is not a rarity. It’s definitely not taboo. It’s very common. Breast implants today among young women today is very common.” Keep reading »
The now infamous Miss California, Carrie Prejean, is still on the defensive after last weekend’s Miss USA pageant, in which she said marriage should be between a man and a woman and not the gays. This weekend she sat down with a gay blogger (not Perez Hilton!) to discuss her feelings on the subject in more depth. Rex Wockner got to the heart of the matter pretty quick.
Rex: I understand that you were raised to believe that marriage is between a man and a woman, and I understand that you grew up knowing that you were always going to marry a guy, but you’re heterosexual. Um, some people are born gay, maybe, you think?
Carrie: No, I don’t think so … I think it’s a behavior that develops over time.
Rex: Why would someone choose it, given that if you choose that, you get discriminated against?
Carrie: I’m not sure what the motivation would be.
