More proof that awful people don’t go away, they just get book deals: Carrie Prejean, former Miss California and the runner-up in this year’s Miss USA pageant who publicly tussled with Perez Hilton over gay marriage, just nailed herself a book deal.
Still Standing, out this November, will tell the story of the 22-year-old beauty queen’s scrapes and misadventures as she gets her boob job paid for by the Miss California Organization, defends herself against topless pics, says gays don’t deserve the same rights as straight people, and eventually loses her crown for “contract violations.”
Oh, joy! We’ll try to get our hands on a copy of Still Standing and share the gift that is sure to keep on giving…in the b.s. department. [US News] Keep reading »
Miss California, Carrie Prejean, has been dethroned for what is being vaguely termed “contract violations”, but what really sounds like a prissy attitude because Prejean refused to make certain appearances. Keith Lewis, a state pageant director said, “It has become abundantly clear that Carrie is unwilling to fulfill her obligations under our contract and work together.” The verdict isn’t a surprise, but is perhaps a bit belated considering the nude picture scandal that almost lost her the crown last month. Along with her public statements against “opposite” marriage (that’s gay marriage for those not proficient in ditz), Prejean hasn’t been America’s favorite figure. She’ll be replaced by runner-up Tami Farrell. With sex, beauty, lies, and probably a lot of tears, we think it’s only a matter of time before Hollywood adapts this story for the small screen.

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 »
