Miss California Gets Fired

1miss_california.jpgSo Donald Trump finally noticed that Carrie Prejean was an irresponsible brat and stripped her of the Miss California crown. Prejean will be replaced by runner-up Tami Farrell. According to a statement by the Miss California pageant’s executive director Keith Lewis, Prejean was not fired for her homophobic remarks but her “contract violations, including Ms. Prejean’s unwillingness to make appearances on behalf of the Miss California USA organization.”

Last month pageant officials had complained publicly about Prejean’s failure to appear at Miss California events while making unsanctioned media appearances, and her refusal to return the pageant official’s phone calls. When Trump undermined his employees by calling Prejean’s contract violations a “misunderstanding” and allowed her to keep her crown, pageant director Shanna Moakler resigned in protest.

Shanna Moakler Resigns From Miss California In Protest

1shannababy.jpgAt 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.

In an interview with Access Hollywood’s Billy Bush, Shanna Moakler, the co-executive director of the Miss California Organization, confirmed that the group paid for Miss California Carrie Prejean‘s breast implants. Prejean sparked a media frenzy when she spoke out against gay marriage during the Miss USA competition a couple weeks ago. While she’s gone on to make several media appearances discussing her stance on same-sex marriage, according to Moakler, Prejean won’t even return calls to her bosses at the Miss California organization.

In her defense, she’s been busy. Prejean has formed a partnership with the anti-gay group National Organization for Marriage. Today they released the following advert:

Prom Queen Launches on MySpace

Michael Eisner’s studio, Vuguru, launched a new 80-episode soap-opera, “Prom Queen,” on MySpace.

Will the scripted murder mystery be as dramatic as the real events on MySpace? Remember when Blink-182 alum Travis Barker used his page to maul his ex, Shanna Moakler or when Nicole Richie called Rachel Zoe “raisin face”? Good times.
