Carrie Prejean’s Larry King Fail

Miss (conservative) California Carrie Prejean‘s 15 minutes have been extended due largely to the unearthing of a sex tape, and to the publication of her book “Still Standing.”

The over-coached beauty queen botched an attempt to “draw the foul” from Larry King on CNN last night. From the looks of it, she was relying on a handler to guide her through what she expected to be a contentious interview. No one told either party that King is the place to go when you need a long time to sell your side of a controversy.

King asked Prejean a simple question about what motivated both parties to settle the suit and counter-suit over her lost crown.

Notice at 1:15 in to the interview, Prejean nods offscreen, presumably to her publicist. She repeatedly calls the befuddled King “inappropriate” before removing her mic. “Who are you talking to?” asks King after he tries to apologize and continue the interview.
