Miss California Gets The Boot; But She's Not Leaving Quietly

The now-former Miss California USA denies being derelict in her post-pageant duties, and says she can't understand why Donald Trump fired her.

Carrie Prejean tells the TV show "Access Hollywood" she's been cooperating with pageant officials.

Prejean stirred up a hornet's nest of controversy when she said during the pageant that gays shouldn't be allowed to marry. Trump and other pageant leaders said Prejean was being sacked not because of her controversial remarks but because she hasn't been holding up her end of the agreement she signed when she entered the pageant.

Prejean tells Access Hollywood she never would have been let go from the pageant if she'd agreed that gays should be allowed to marry.

Pageant officials say Prejean will be replaced by the Miss California pageant's first runner-up, Miss Malibu Tami Farrell.

    Stop hating on gay people! As Christian you are not supposed to judge...in the bible it expresses that ONLY GOD will judge! But all this so called christians do is judge and point fingers...what does this say about them? She made the big mistake on denying someones rights...legal marriage should be available for gays.

    You proved my point exactly Tad. Hide from the questions and answer by stating "What we Christians know is the truth". Are you sure about that Tad?

    Milt-heterosexuals engage in high risk behaviors too, so does this mean we should hate heterosexuals too? What about all those homosexuals who come from normal homes and are masculine?

    Derek, everytime you post it seems like a lot of noise. No, you don't have to assume that girls raised by single fathers are going to turn out lesbian, as long as the father teaches his daughter that she is not a male like him and doesn't allow himself to inadvertantly teach her to change the natural sexuality she was born with. A single father could raise a girl to be a lesbian, if he teaches her to be like him, act like him, like what he likes, visualize and cognitively process what he considers sexually attractive as he does, etc. THE ISLE OF LESBOS?, Las Vegas, Atlantic City, gastric-bypass surgery? get serious. The Bible expresses the beleif of Christians, Derek. What we Christians know is the truth. You have the right to babble, you do not have the right tell us that we have to agree with your nonsense. You accusing Christians of bigotry is BIGOTRY. Stop hating Christians, that has not worked out well for a lot of people. Thank you for your truth Milt, sorry for your loss.

    looks like a lot of dialogue has continued so far. firstly, no one is for sure that homosexaulity is a learned trait. are we to assume that girls raised by single fathers are going to turn out lesbian? seems to be a lot of noise only concerning gay men here, what about lesbian women? The bible was also written centuries after historical evidence of homosexual people: ie. Island of Lesbos, Alexander the Great, etc. The point is, the bible meerly expresses a belief that homosexuality is a sin, well why does American culture thrive on sin? Anyone been the Las Vegas or Atlantic City? Anyone desicrate their bodies with tatoos, piercings, scarification? What about the gluttons? I heard that gastri-bipass surgery was invented in Greenville, yet those that chastise homosexuality continue with their fast-food diets. So typical, a double-standard book and its double-standard followers....

    GBHB, several ECU students, some of whom were "Frat Boys" as you call them, have died of AIDs in the past ten years. They do not issue public proclamations when it happens. One was my cousin and he withdrew from school shortly before his death. He was gay and contracted the desease while a senior in high school through homosexual sex. I loved my cousin and I wish this had not happened, but I admit that I wish more that he had not been gay, then this wouldn't have happened. He, like his friends, engaged in high risk behaviors that I don't feel compeled to discribe for you. My cousin was bitter and hateful toward his family because we would not support his lifestyle choice. He did come from a loving family, but his mother made the mistake of treating him in ways that seemed to make him act feminine. She taught him to act like her. We loved him, but nobody except his mom would approve of his Lifestyle. I do not regret that, it is a principal of my faith. Homosexuality is a sin.

    OSOC, I fully agree with GBHB. Your story is so full of holes and since your best friend as you so put it was gay then why do you talk bad about homosexuals all the time. GBHB's last post was at 4:36PM your no reply sends your story's fakeness up like a red flare.

    I do find it hypocritical that you say I am not compassionate, but you slander homosexuals as disease riddled third class citizens. Oh my where is the compassion! Once again I must ask "What would "AI" think of your attitude against homosexuals?" Lets be honest, you fabricated this tory to justify your hatred of homosexual. You thought everybody would feel sympathy for you and not call you out on it. Trust me Obama Snake Oil Co, I am deeply in touch with reality and that is why I knew you were lying. You story does not make any sense. I can create a story with initials too. I attended ECU in 2001 as well and I do not recall any frat boy dying of AIDS. I like this saying "extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence."

    "So believe what you want, think and post what you want but at least seek the truth in your life. Don't live the lie you are right now." Would love to know what you are referring to here. Considering you know little about me, I do not believe you are in a position to say that about me, unless that is, you are creating another story. OSOC, I always bring the facts and I am glad you read the CDC links, but please do not gloss over the fact that is says HIV can be spread from straight males to females. Because if you do, then you will forever live in ignorance. I can tell you are making excuses for the 34%. Must have been bisexual acts right? Why not follow your own advice and seek the truth in your own life. Also I take it AI was this "persons" initials. I find it funny you have the same bigoted mentality towards homosexuals as his family did towards "him." Wow, what a way to show respect. I guess you did not learn your lesson. What would "AI" think of you now?

    GBHB, while I note you true uncompassion by saying this was "fabricated", this just shows me you are not in touch with the real world and seek your truth for the ones that fit you mold. Well, since my fraternity brothers were the only ones at his funeral in Windsor, his parents had disowned him, I can tell you it was one of the saddest funerals I had ever attended. He had been an eagle scout like us, probably, unlike you, so we showed respect to a brother of our fraternity. So believe what you want, think and post what you want but at least seek the truth in your life. Don't live the lie you are right now. CSC states 34%, yep, you are right about that, one third, and they probably will get that from bisexuals, or other means. Thanks for a fact for a change. Lastly, Al, was black and shunned by his own race. Just like your president, they do not like gay men. His own mother didn't go to see him off. His brothers didn't come either. So what a great like it was for him. Have a nice day.
