Kurtz: Carrie Prejean ‘Yelled at a Young Staffer’ after LKL Interview

This morning on CNN’s Reliable Sources, Howie Kurtz and his panel were talking about Carrie Prejean‘s near-exit from “Larry King Live” the other night. Turns out, since Prejean was in Washington, DC for the interview, Kurtz had some inside scoop about what happened after the interview.

Kurtz: “I just want to make one quick observation. Carrie Prejean yelled at a young staffer here in the CNN bureau: ‘Why did you let Larry ask me these questions?’ It didn’t have anything to do with the interview or the questions. I don’t think it was her best night.”

• If you haven’t seen it, here’s the video from Larry King Live…

The Donald Comments on Carrie Prejean’s Near Walk-off on Larry King Live

Tonight on HLN’s “Showbiz Tonight” Donald Trump calls Carrie Prejean‘s confrontation with Larry King “surprising.” Says the Donald:

“‘Inappropriate’ is more of a sexual term, as far as I’m concerned. I mean — inappropriate? He asked a very, very easy question and I was surprised that she just didn’t say, ‘Hey, listen, I can’t answer that question.’ Instead she wants to walk off the stage? It was very surprising.”

Carrie Prejean Nearly Walks off Larry King

Former beauty queen Carrie Prejean removed her microphone and nearly walked off the set last night while she was being interviewed by CNN’s Larry King. She repeatedly referred to King as being “inappropriate” when he asked about the motives behind her settlement with the Miss California USA pageant.

WebNewser points out that King had tweeted prior to the interview, “Also tonight the attorney for the suspected Ft. Hood shooter and Carrie Prejean explains her sex tape. It’s a 3 topic night!” (WebNewser has been enjoying King’s tweets of late.) Clip:

Miss California Carrie Prejean Hosts Fox & Friends: How Did It Go?

Miss California Carrie Prejean filled in as host of the first hour of Fox & Friends this morning, discussing the Prop 8 ruling yesterday and tussling co-host Brian Kilmeade‘s hair. What else?

See some highlights below (edited) and after the jump, her interview with Ugo the dog (and owner) in F&F’s second day this week of Soledad O’Brien coverage:

Cablers Cover Prop 8 Court Ruling

CNN, FNC and MSNBC have mixed in coverage of the Sonia Sotomayor selection with the multifarious ruling out of California this hour. The state’s Supreme Court upheld the ban on same-sex marriage, while also declaring approximately 18,000 couples married before the ban took effect will stay wed. On the cablers, many of the legal correspondents on to talk Supreme Court were back to discuss the ruling.

Of course, the question on everyone’s mind: what does Miss California Carrie Prejean think about all this? She’ll likely discuss the ruling when she co-hosts Fox & Friends tomorrow morning:

Ashleigh Banfield Channels Her Inner Lesbian

Banfield_5.14.jpgtruTV anchor Ashleigh Banfield was filling-in on Air America Tuesday around the time the cable news channels were airing the Donald Trump/Carrie Prejean news conference.

While commenting on the wall-to-wall coverage, Banfield blurted out, “I’d hit that! And I’m in an opposite marriage.”

The married mother of two says, “It was very liberating! I was channeling Howard Stern, my hero.”

“Oprah” Lauer? Today‘s “Go-To Guy”

Is NBC’s Matt Lauer “the male version of Oprah Winfrey“? The Buffalo News’ TV critic Alan Pergament makes the argument today based on three recent interviews: Elizabeth Edwards, Carrie Prejean and Bristol Palin.

The appearances of Edwards, Prejean and Palin with Lauer indicate that he is the go-to guy when women need gentle handling. Like Winfrey, he figures out how to ask newsmakers difficult or embarrassing questions without offending them in any way.

The three women are sympathetic figures to some degree, and that made it even harder to become too aggressive when asking questions….The empathetic Lauer was quite masterful making the subjects feel comfortable.

MSNBC’s Dayside Anchors Debate Carrie Prejean : “Can I Vomit Right Now?”

After the wall-to-wall coverage of the Donald Trump/Carrie Prejean news conference, MSNBC’s dayside anchor team of Contessa Brewer, Tamron Hall and David Shuster had a, let’s call it, lively discussion about what had just occurred. After Shuster called Prejean “clearly not very smart,” Brewer said, “I think this is a great jumping off point for a conversation about same sex marriage.”

“No it’s not, no it’s not,” added Hall. Later, Shuster said it in a different way: “The only jumping off point is jumping off a cliff if we really believe that people at these pageants have anything worthwhile to say to the rest of us.”
