    What is it with the interest in beauty pageant contestants and sex tapes? In addition to the Carrie Prejean tape, there is a new scandal, involving a Miss Universe contestant in a 3-way hard core tape. As this is allegedly a legal column, that brings us to the legal issue – what does it take to get fired from a pageant for a morals clause? When does something in your private life cost you a job dealing with the public?

    Let me tell you a fairy tale. Once upon a time, a gorgeous blond California girl -- let's call her "Carrie" -- wanted to be a beauty queen. Asked about gay marriage, "Carrie" blurted out her truth: "I believe all Americans should enjoy equal rights to get married whether it is same-sex or opposite marriage. That's the way I was raised, and that's the way I think marriage should be." Afterward, a judge proclaimed her answer so offensive he voted against her and wanted to rip off her tiara. Instead of rebuking the judge, pageant officials said that "Carrie" needs...

    A life coach’s open letter to Carrie Prejean, including some suggested affirmations: Dear Carrie -- Since you’ve decided to put yourself in the spotlight by writing a book about your experience in the Miss USA pageant, and subsequently invite all forms of reaction to it, I’m writing to put in my two cents. I don’t know you, but after reading Still Standing it seems that what you think about gay marriage is small potatoes. Your story is about so much more than that now. It’s about shining a scathing spotlight on that throwback to the 1950s -- the pageant circuit....

    The tactics of the Left are predictable and to date, they win the battle of the media more often than common sense. Recently, offering up Ms. Pregean as a target has provided the Left with no end of lively entertainment. It sounds a little like this; Ms. Prejean has publicly said “no” to homosexual marriage yet there seems to be pictures and film, from her past, that makes her a hypocrite. Conservatives either bow their head as though they lost another round or ignore the “tempest in a teapot” as it offers little interest to them. Isn’t everyone a little...

    It looks like Carrie Prejean spoke too soon when she called her recent sex tape the "biggest mistake" of her life. Either the seven other sex tapes that have just surfaced aren't actually salacious, or else the former Miss California has a little more to atone for. RadarOnline.com has just learned that the dethroned beauty queen has no less than eight sex tapes and 30 naked photos to her name. As in her previous sex tape, she performs solo on each video. Some of the new sexy photographs that have been unearthed Prejean allegedly took herself, of own reflection in...

    Just this year, Dobson gave 2009 Miss USA 1st runner-up Carrie Prejean the same treatment. To her credit, she had spoken out against same-sex marriage during the pageant, yet she seemed to have no moral dilemma when it came to posing for some prurient photographs. Dobson praised her for the former and had little to say about the latter, holding her out as a fine example of Christian womanhood who had been martyred by the media. I was still program director at a Christian station at that time, and we were given a choice between airing the Prejean interview or...

    Carrie Prejean demanded more than a million dollars during her settlement negotiations with Miss California USA Pageant officials -- that is, until the lawyer for the Pageant showed Carrie an XXX home video of her handiwork. The video the lawyer showed Carrie is extremely graphic and has never been released publicly. We know that, because TMZ obtained the video months ago but decided not to post it because it was so racy. Let's just say, Carrie has a promising solo career. We're told it took about 15 seconds for Carrie to jettison her demand and essentially walk away with nothing....

But Carrie Prejean, the former Miss California whose declaration that marriage should be between a man and woman earned her the vilification of some in the gay rights community, provided an unanticipated emotional highlight at a conference of Christian conservatives in Washington today. In a heartfelt talk that moved some in the crowd to tears, Prejean recounted for the 1,700 activists gathered for the...

    Not too long ago, conventional wisdom seemed to dictate that gay marriage in America was inevitable. Conservatives, surprisingly, would tell me this more often than anyone. But something has changed. Carrie Prejean has had an effect on us. That's the argument made by my friend, Maggie Gallagher, president of the National Organization for Marriage, in the latest issue of National Review. After a series of judicial usurpations, legislative victories, and public-relations onslaughts, the gay-marriage movement took a blow this past November, when Proposition 8 was passed in California. Voters affirmed a ballot measure that defined marriage as "between a man...

Prejean, stripped of the Miss California USA title last week, "suffered severe emotional distress" and her reputation was harmed by Lewis, Charles LiMandri said in a letter sent Thursday to Lewis' lawyer. LiMandri's letter also accused Lewis, whom he referred to as a "gay activist," of setting Prejean up to be fired because of her statements opposing same-sex marriage. When Prejean, 22, was dethroned, Lewis said it was...

It needs to be a two-way street and it’s not. This is about me stating my beliefs about same-sex marriage, and that’s the reason why we’re here today.”

    First, a homosexual activist “judge” kept Carrie Prejean from winning the Miss USA contest. Next, the homosexual “marriage” activists who led the California pageant tried to get Carrie fired, but Donald Trump said no. Finally, the homosexual activist director of the Miss California Pageant persisted and got rid of Carrie. Keith Lewis, the director of the Miss California USA Pageant, is an open homosexual and obviously very insecure. After Carrie said on national TV on April 19 that marriage is only for a man and a woman, Lewis said he was personally offended. For weeks, he campaigned unprofessionally, publicly and...

Prejean, whom Somerby unchivalrously describes as "an insignificant 21-year-old," competed as Miss California in the Miss USA beauty pageant. A kerfuffle ensued when a contest judge, Perez Hilton, asked Prejean what she thought of same-sex marriage. She gave what seemed an...

    Carrie Prejean is not the only one who is being demonized these days for expressing politically incorrect opinions; free speech had a bad week all over the world. British Home Secretary Jacqui Smith last week announced the names of sixteen “extremists” whom she has barred from entering Britain – a smorgasbord of nasty characters including a white supremacist; a Christian fundamentalist hate preacher; two Islamic jihadists; and Samir Kantar, a Lebanese Druze terrorist who brutally murdered four Israelis, including a four-year-old child. On the list also was talk show host Michael Savage, whose only offense seems to have been to...

    ... Citing Prejean's answer at the pageant, he said, "It's the same answer that the president of the United States gave." The difference is that she actually believes it. Indeed, the "dumb blonde with fake boobs," as homosexual activists have called her, has provided a more spirited and courageous defense of marriage than many Catholic bishops. They are apparently tied up with other important matters, such as penning memoirs in which they announce their "struggles" with sodomy. ... But back to Prejean: How is it that a culture as drenched in depravity as this one could describe her as "disgraced"?...
  • Same Site that Published Prejean Pics Now Says Has Sex Tape; But We Show How They Lie.

    The site thedirty.com now “claims” they have an exclusive video tape of Miss Carrie Prejean doing an explicit act on video. He claims he is waiting for clearance from legal because his site is not pornographic. However, the site has a history of hyping stories for weeks with the claim of evidence, but never publishes. Most recently, Nik Richie insisted that there were incriminating photos of Kobe Bryant and a Laker Girl, Vanessa Curry (not to be confused with Kobe’s wife Vanessa Bryant) committing adultery. No visual evidence or no solid testimony ever emerged to validate Nik Ritchie’s claims against...

    The liberal onslaught of malicious attacks against Carrie Prejean for expressing her opinion is despicable. Carrie and I spoke soon after the attacks started; I can relate as a liberal target myself. What I find so remarkable is that these politically-motivated attacks fail to show that what Carrie and I believe is also what President Obama and Secretary Clinton believe - marriage is between a man and a woman. I applaud Donald Trump for standing with Carrie during this time. And I respect Carrie for standing strong and staying true to herself, and for not letting those who disagree with...

    Not even Dick Cheney can incite the blood-curdling rage of liberals at the sight of a sexy Evangelical Christian. Paula Jones, Katherine Harris, Michele Bachmann, Sarah Palin and, most recently, Miss California, Carrie Prejean, have all come under a frenzy of attacks from liberals. Christians are supposed to be fat, balding sweaty little men with bad complexions. It's liberals who are supposed to be the sexy ones. (I know that from watching "The West Wing" and all movies starring Julia Roberts.) But sadly for liberals, in real life, the fat, balding sweaty little guy with the bad complexion is Perez...

God wants you to shut up...You know, you've done enough already." Co-hosts Harry Smith, Maggie Rodriguez, and Julie Chen all laughed in response and shared in mocking Carrie Prejean.

    It used to be that there was one beauty pageant, the Miss America contest. I don't think anybody even owned it or claimed to have its exclusive rights. If I'm not mistaken, it was dreamed up by the Founding Fathers back in their Philadelphia days around the time they were writing the Constitution. One of the fellows, probably John Adams, said, "Let's throw in a Miss America contest and get Bert Parks to sing.'' And it was ever thus. Only Miss America had Bert Parks. Today, of course, there are dozens and dozens of beauty pageants. And the gals start...

    GROVE CITY, Pa. (ABP) -- Racy Internet photos have prompted some social conservatives to question the Religious Right's embrace of Miss USA runner-up Carrie Prejean as a model Christian. The Miss California USA pageant winner became an instant celebrity April 19 when she answered a question about same-sex marriage from a well-known gay blogger who was serving as a pageant judge. She said she believed marriage should be between a man and a woman. Two days later Baptist Press credited the 21-year-old college student -- who attends San Diego's Rock Church but volunteers at Southern Baptist-affiliated Shadow Mountain Community Church...
