PAGEANT DRAMA

Miss CA’s Fate Hangs in Balance

At a press conference we’re sure Perez Hilton will be watching, Donald Trump will announce Tuesday morning whether controversial beauty queen Carrie Prejean will be able to keep her Miss California crown. The Miss USA runner-up has made news with her vocal opposition to gay marriage and for a recent series of topless photos, which organizers say violate her contract. Prejean also broke her contract by agreeing to be a spokeswoman for the National Organization for Marriage, and pageant organizers say she’s been forgoing scheduled engagements to focus on her new high-profile lifestyle. But don’t worry, California—even if Prejean is stripped of her title, pageant organizers have tapped runner-up Tami Farrell to be the official “ambassador” to the pageant, which sounds a lot like being Miss California.
