Carrie Prejean: Might loss Miss California title
The directors of the Miss California USA pageant, who met early Tuesday in order to determine whether Carrie Prejean violated her contract by working with a national group opposed to gay marriage and by posing semi-nude when she was a teenage model, have yet to decide if Carrie Prejean should be stripped of her crown.
Pageant spokesman Roger Neal told reporters of online magazine that pageant directors Keith Lewis and Shanna Moakler have been in closed-door meetings through out the day in order to discuss the issue.
On Tuesday Neal said that Carrie Prejean had run afoul of numerous parts of the 12-page contract that all prospective contestants were required to sign before taking part in the competition in the November state contest.
The detailed document gives pageant officials nearly unlimited control of the activities of the title holder prohibits Miss California from making personal appearances, giving interviews or making commercials without taking permission permission from the pageant officials. A popular news magazine has confirmed the news.
In the last two weeks, twenty one year old Carrie Prejean has made televised appearances at her local church in San Diego and on behalf of the National Organization for Marriage, a group opposed to same-sex marriage.
The contract also contains a clause thereby asking the participants to acknowledge whether they have conducted themselves "in accordance with the highest ethical and moral standards." As an example, it asks if they have ever been photographed nude or partially nude.
On Monday, juicy photographs of Prejean wearing nothing but pink underwear and covering her breast with her back turned were flashed on the internet.
"As you can see from the contract, she violated multiple items," added Neal by bringing out a statement to the popular news agency.
However Carrie Prejean insisted that the photographs were just modeling shots and that she was only seventeen year old when they were taken.
In a statement on Tuesday she said, "I am a Christian, and I am a model," "Models pose for pictures, including lingerie and swimwear photos."
She gave objection to the photo's release, thereby claiming that it was an attempt to humiliate her because of her religious faith and conservative views.
"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," added Prejean.
