Miss California Carrie Prejean: Firing a 'Set-Up' Over Gay Comment — Plus, Leaked Emails


Carrie Prejean told Matt LAuer on the Today show this morning that she was fired over her comment opposing gay marriage and not over missed appearances or her conduct following a press conference in May where Donald Trump announced she was keeping her crown.

However, yesterday, a set of emails between Miss California director Keith Lewis leaked. Here are some of Prejean's emails:

  1. Can we say LYING CUNT boys and girls?

    Of course we can.

  2. Blogmaster my filter please...

    She sounds like a delightful young lady!

  3. We really hate this woman. However - it's time to give her some "angel action" and just turn our backs on her. If we ignore her, so will everyone else - Perez actually gave her a platform, which gives all of the sidelined on-the-fence potential supporters a reason to stay on the sidelines or choose the wrong side.

  4. At the 5:00 mark, the reason she was asked to do only two appearances between the Miss CA pageant and the Miss USA pageant is that she was busy getting breast implants.

  5. Former Miss California Carrie Prejean has been given her own TV show on the Big Hair Bigots Network, which was to start today. Unfortunately, they had to postpone today's show because her first guest, James von Brunn, could not make it to the Big Hair Bigot studios for the interview.

    She has announced plans to initiate a Big Burqa Bigot Network in Afghanistan, since she heard that overprivileged, spiteful, spoiled, lazy, dumb blonde bimbos are popular there.

  6. The post-Trump decision narrative is pretty clear. Prejean rightly thought she came away the victor from the dispute, but wrongly thought that meant that she could then dictate terms to her bosses. I don't think many will be terribly surprised - she was brimming with insolence at the press conference after Trump's decision. Diplomacy is not this woman's strong suit.

  7. Regardless of her prop 8 opinions, Miss Plastique over-played her hand. She thought she was entitled to call the shots and found out the hard way that if you want to play hardball with Mr. Trump you're likely to get canned. Plain and simple.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't her job just a one-year appointment? I have plenty of expertise, seniority, and recognition in my field, and if I acted like that I'd be out on my ass. She truly is a stupid bitch if she didn't realize how very expendable she was. Sorry... IS.

  8. I'm not even going to bother watching her 7 minutes of lies (yet again with no one there to give a rebuttal). If there were any truth to the idea that she was fired because of her anti-gay comments, then why didn't Trump fire her when he had the opportunity during the topless photo scandal?

  9. "Tolerance is a 2-way street."
    Does she not even HEAR what she is saying? I love it when these bigots play the role of victim.
    Good riddance.

  10. LOL, what an absolutely epic cunt!

    Posted by: MikeMick | Jun 12, 2009 11:00:19 AM

  11. She's had a great deal more than her 15 minutes of fame. Way past time for us all to move on and as a previous commenter wrote, "ignore her". The wingnuts will latch on to her just as they have with Palin, etc. and try to keep her in the press. Nothing we can do about that, but the fact that they have this woman as their spokesperson speaks volumes about them. I refuse to watch the above clip and this is the last article I will read about her. It's spam!

  12. What a brat. I'm surprised at the way she conducts herself on email. It's email but you should be professional and courteous since it's work you're still discussing. What a spoiled brat.

  13. Bigheaded Carrie Prejean and her big ignorant mouth has become too haughty. She can blame the gays or her dreadfully inarticulate answer, but she disobeyed the Miss USA Organization's Golden Rule: Trumping her REAL lord and master -- DONALD TRUMP.

  14. Oh my gosh! The beauty queen is a princess! Who knew?

  15. she's so pathetic. seriously.

    Posted by: anna | Jun 12, 2009 11:18:35 AM

  16. As dumb and bigotted as she appears, what struck me the most is Matt Lauer's pathetic interview. Did he choose to ignore the totally uncooperative and insubordinate emails she sent her boss? Or didn't he know about them because he didn't do some basic journalistic research?

    It's kind of sad when a beauty contest bimbo has more intellect than a network TV interviewer. But they both have something in common: neither one was hired for his/her brains.

  17. Clearly there really was no need for Keith Lewis to go on and gather further justification. He wasted his time. Her use of "ur" and run-on sentences should have been enough to fire her.

    Posted by: K | Jun 12, 2009 11:23:58 AM

  18. Donald trump is an asshole! Carrie is NOT truthful and the pagent is way , way outdated!

    Posted by: steve | Jun 12, 2009 11:27:39 AM

  19. Another pandering interview from Matt Lauer - is this the third or fourth time now that he's literally sat there like a lapdog and let Carrie say anything she wants with no challenging or rebuttals.

    Interesting that he was a lot tougher when interviewing the other side of the argument - Perez / Shanna / Keith

  20. so the special olympics committee is full of homophobes? good to know!

  21. Hahaha, ol' silicone tits got the boot.

    Posted by: Olive Yurdich | Jun 12, 2009 11:50:27 AM

  22. Being a simple-minded, mean bitch... is that just how she was raised, too?

    I hope Carrie is ready to bring me my burger and fries at Hooters.

    Posted by: Bakely | Jun 12, 2009 11:50:29 AM

  23. Can we add "crazy" to her being a bitch officially?

    Posted by: Marco | Jun 12, 2009 12:02:05 PM

  24. They missed, and injected the silicone into her head... thus swelling that part of her body. Reading her emails show how out of control she really was. Arrogance, thy name is Prejean!

    Posted by: Reggie | Jun 12, 2009 12:06:46 PM

  25. Her arrogance is immeasurable! Those e-mails show someone telling their BOSS that they have to clear it with HER before she will agree to do any of the work assigned her! There is no employer on this planet that would find that acceptable. Just like her incapacity to grasp that it was not her opinion on "opposite marriage" that could be alienating other people, just her personality. She has been saying that she indeed honored her contractual duties, but she had better be careful because that is provable one way or the other. Like a different morning co-host mused this morning, Trump is sure to be "a far from silent partner" about this once she stops bringing USEFUL publicity to his pageant.
