Carrie Prejean Update

Good Christian girl & outspoken beauty pageant winner Carrie Prejean, whose anti-gay remarks have endeared her to conservatives, has become embroiled in another scandal. Seems as if some, rather tame, racy photos [warning: most likely NSFW] of her have surfaced.

But it's OK, I guess. You can still be a hypocrite, as long as you're a hypocrite for Jesus.

(Please note that this editor, speaking only for himself, has nothing against tasteful erotica - but is not at all fond of self-righteous hypocrisy.)

By golly, let's not confuse career moves with religion!

Ah, but she says it is all part of an attempt to mock her religion. Because, you know, her choice to be photographed half-dressed is all part of the evil anti-Christian conspiracy, or something.

The Miss California Organization is very cross because she's off-message. She may lose her contract.

I think we're done with Miss CA. Hasn't she had way more than the obligate 15 minutes of fame?

Don't you people believe that the body is the temple of the holy ghost?
She's just showing off her place of worship.

:: chuckles at Fred's comment ::

Too bad there are bats in the belfry tho' ;)

I don't particularly care if she shows off her body or not, but the pageant specifically prohibits this behavior.

What is even stranger (at least to me) is the fact that the Miss California pageant paid for Ms. Prejean's breast implants, just a few weeks ago.

What's really remarkable is that the CEO or some such muckety muck of the Miss California Organization said that "many girls prefer to use chicken cutlets". No kidding.

She might be in breach of her contract:

The directors of the Miss California USA pageant are looking into whether title holder Carrie Prejean violated her contract by working with a national group opposed to gay marriage and by posing semi-nude when she was a teenage model.
Pageant spokesman Roger Neal said Tuesday that it appears Prejean has run afoul of several sections of the 12-page contract that all prospective contestants were required to sign before competing in the November state contest.
The detailed document prohibits the titular Miss California from making personal appearances, giving interviews or making commercials without permission from pageant officials. In the last 10 days, Prejean has made televised appearances at her San Diego church and on behalf of the National Organization for Marriage, a group opposed to same-sex marriage.
The contact also contains a clause asking participants to say whether they have conducted themselves "in accordance with the highest ethical and moral standards." As an example, it asks if they have ever been photographed nude or partially nude.

"As you can see from the contract, she violated multiple items," Neal said in an e-mail to The Associated Press........
The California pageant contract gives pageant officials almost unlimited control over the title holder's activities, including the right to terminate her reign for breaching its provisions.

You know... let me say up front that I just HATE these pagents.

But listen, if someone has to be judged on things they are not (implants, chicken cutlets (silicone bra) then why not have them lip sinc when singing in a talent contest... or have someone else relate their "thoughts" on stage.

I have always seen this crap as demeaning to women and I don't like it one damn bit.

This is one of the reasons, in my 20's, I took off the makeup, left the sexy or cool clothes behind and donned hiking boots and jeans. I never liked being thought of as a sexual object. I hated it.

IT said...

Awww, Cany, you gave it away! You know how long it took me to figger out that "chicken cutlets" did not mean stuffing their bras with raw poultry? :-)

I agree, I hate these things. They objectify women and send the message that it is okay to judge women by their appearance. BUT if Ms Prejean chooses to participate in this and signed a contract, she has to live up to its terms.

IT, you gave it away yourself. (I followed your link.)

I was figuring there was another category of competition I hadn't heard about. Best recipe or something. Or maybe just bribing the judge with a good meal.

IT said...

Well, yes, Paul M, but you had to go find it (and we know that at least half our readers never "click through"!)


Just joking although I still love the mental picture of the "girls" with raw chicken parts applied to their bodies with duct tape.

The surgical supplies salespeople use chicken and pork to demonstrate their wares.

Bssssttttt.....(sound of electrocautery frying a pesky little bleeding vessel)

OK, that one gave me shudders and chills, besides almost making me vomit!

The silicone doodads beat stuffing your bra with kleenex I suppose ;)
