Carrie Prejean (Of Course) is Writing a Book

miss-california.jpgFormer Miss California, Carrie Prejean, who was such a pain to the Miss Universe franchise (an organization that should be completely immune to diva) got canned for not showing up to her contractual obligations. So ahem, she uh…quit. Right? Stopped showing up? Quit. Then lost her crown.

So now she’s going to write a book making herself out to be the victim of a horrible media who hates conservatives and makes her out to look stupid any chance they get. We’re presuming it won’t be available under fiction.

Anyway, we hear there’s an opening for Alaska governor since Miss Prejean is clearly stealing Sarah Palin‘s schtick.

REGNERY ANNOUNCES PLANS TO PUBLISH

DE-THRONED MISS CALIFORNIA CARRIE PREJEAN

WASHINGTON, D.C.-Regnery Publishing announced today it has signed a
publishing contract with former Miss California Carrie Prejean. Her new book, Still Standing, will be released in November 2009.

Prejean attracted national attention when she answered a question at the Miss USA Pageant defending traditional marriage. The unprecedented personal attacks that ensued eventually culminated in Prejean being stripped of her Miss California crown. But the 22-year-old won the respect of millions for modeling something other than evening gowns and swimsuits – the courage of standing up for her convictions.

Now she will tell her side of the story, answering such questions as
what happened behind the scenes at the pageant, why she answered the
Perez Hilton question as she did, what really led to her losing the Miss California crown, and how she has been forced to battle the left’s double-standard on free speech and the bias against conservatives – particularly conservative women – who stand up for their beliefs.

Prejean is represented by Lee Hough with Alive Communications, Inc.
