At Donald Trump‘s press conference yesterday- where he defended Carrie Prejean‘s stance on gay marriage and announced that, despite the revealing photos that recently surfaced, she would keep her Miss California crown- Shanna Moakler sat by and smiled politely. Because it was her job. And listening to Trump blither like an idiot and make excuses for a vapid homophobe isn’t a job Moakler wants anymore. The statement she gave to Usmagazine.com:
I cannot with a clear conscious move forward supporting and promoting the Miss Universe Organization when I no longer believe in it, or the contracts I signed committing myself as a youth. I want to be a role model for young woman with high hopes of pageantry, but now feel it more important to be a role model for my children. I am sorry and hope I have not let any young supporters down but wish them the best of luck in fulfilling their dreams.
