Apparently someone has been digging away at her past and has unearthed some semi-nude pictures from a couple of years ago. This one picture which was released is actually quite tame, and in my very humble opinion - we saw more when she strutted the stage in her bikini AND NEW PAGEANT SPONSORED BOOBS!!
Now the committee members in charge of this pageant are meeting behind closed doors to decide whether to garnish Miss California's crown and send her packing. Rules are rules, and this young lady signed a contract stating that no pictures (nude or semi-nude) exist. Apparently this is required of all contestants. After all this brouhaha, Ms. Prejean (or a publicist maybe) released the following statement.
"My comments defending traditional marriage have led to intimidation tactics that seek to undermine my reputation and somehow silence me and my beliefs, as if opinion is only a one-way street.
"I am a Christian, and I am a model. Models pose for pictures, including lingerie and swimwear photos. Recently, photos taken of me as a teenager have been released surreptitiously to a tabloid website that openly mocks me for my Christian faith.
"I am not perfect, and I will never claim to be. But these attacks on me and others who speak in defense of traditional marriage are intolerant and offensive. While we may not agree on every issue, we should show respect for others' opinions and not try to silence them through vicious and mean-spirited attacks."
I don't know about anyone else, but this statement echoes a Sarah Palin-turn the tables- type of mea culpa. I do not buy the "mocking her because of her Christian faith" - that is a pile of crap. YOU LIED BIMBO!!! Plain and simple, she did not follow the rules.
Now what this will do to her $1.2 million ad campaign by NOW - is yet to be seen. But from beginning to end...answer me one question....
Who won the Miss USA pageant and what was her name???!?!?!!?
The girl-next-door, no longer exists and the criteria for these blatant sexist pageants is either going to have to be broader or I say do away with the damn things altogether. Their (pageants) popularity has dwindled to the point that one pageant is only aired on the CW. And Donald Trump...he owns all of them...I wish he would just - GO AWAY!!
Off to my fake bake, I shall return....later..................
