Beauty Queens

Carrie Prejean Sues Pageant

No longer a beauty queen, Carrie Prejean appears to want to be a drama queen instead: The former Miss California, who lost her title after missing several appearances, is suing pageant officials for slander, libel, and religious discrimination, saying she was told not to mention God even before her controversial remarks about gay marriage at April’s Miss USA pageant. The lawsuit targets pageant director Keith Lewis and his former co-director Shanna Moakler. The suit also says that Lewis and Moakler inappropriately revealed how Miss California USA paid for Prejean’s breast implants.
