After being defended by the boss Donald Trump about a month ago, Carrie Prejean has been dethroned as Miss California USA. The reasoning? For “contract violations,” including missing scheduled pageant events – according to a state pageant official.
“Carrie is a beautiful young woman, and I wish her well as she pursues her other interests,” Trump said.
Miss Malibu, will immediately assume the Miss California USA title.
“This was a decision based solely on contract violations, including Ms. Prejean’s unwillingness to make appearances on behalf of the Miss California USA organization,” according to one official.
“She came to us and said I’m not interested in your input; I’ll make my own decision what I’m going to do.”
During a radio interview Wednesday with Billy Bush, who also was host of the pageant, Prejean said it was that controversy that led to her losing her title, not contract issues.
“It’s just because of my answer, I think,” Prejean told Bush. “None of this would be happening right now if I just said yeah, gays should get married, you’re right Perez Hilton.”
