Perez Hilton & Miss California Face Off

Perez Hilton and Miss California, Carrie Prejean, were on “The Today Show” this morning, talking about the controversy surrounding the beauty queen’s response to Hilton’s gay marriage question at Sunday’s Miss USA Pageant. On the show, Hilton was extremely well-spoken and made the argument that Miss California alienated many Americans with her anti-gay marriage response. Because Miss USA is supposed to represent all Americans, it cost her the crown. I’m not sure that I look to a beauty queen to represent me or my views to the world, but I get his point. When it was Prejean’s turn to speak, she said she spoke from her heart, and she stands by what she says, as it reflects her religious beliefs.

Asked whether every state should follow suit since Vermont became the fourth state to legalize same sex marriage earlier this month, Miss California replied that she thinks it’s “great” that Americans can choose between same sex marriage or “opposite marriage,” but that in her country, she believes marriage should be between a man and woman. Isn’t California still part of America? On his blog, Perez called Miss California’s response the “worst answer in pageant history.” While I agree it was pretty bad, who can forget Miss South Carolina’s disastrous answer in the Miss Teen USA Pageant a couple years ago?
