Does anyone remember Carrie Prejean? The pro “opposite sex” chick who was briefly Miss California USA?
(It’s a healthy sign if you don’t.)
Well, Carrie is still seeking attention, and unspecified damages.
She’s blaming the Miss California USA pageant (remember this isn’t the Miss California pagent).
And, she’s suing.
Prejean, who was stripped of her Miss California crown in June, has filed suit against two Miss USA California officials, claiming that she lost her crown solely for her religious beliefs. She is seeking unspecified damages.
“Over the past two months, we have worked hard to provide overwhelming evidence that Carrie Prejean did not violate her contract with Miss California USA and did not deserve to have her title revoked by Keith Lewis,” said the attorney who is representing Prejean. “We will make the case that her title was taken from her solely because of her support of traditional marriage.”
Oddly enough, on some level he’s right. It was Prejean’s unauthorized campaigning for National Organization for Marriage, a political organization that “supports traditional marriage”, that cost Carrie her job. If she had stayed in California and cut ribbons and supported politically neutral endeavors, she’d still be Miss California USA today.
