Carrie Prejean stripped of Miss California title

Before you shout for joy or howl with rage, check the details. It's not for the reasons you think it is :sosp:

The group kicked the controversial beauty queen from her post due to "contract violations including Ms. Prejean's unwillingness to make appearances on behalf of the Miss California USA organization," the pageant's Executive Director, Keith Lewis, said in a statement.

Last month, Trump decided that Prejean would be allowed to keep her crown despite racy photos of the 22-year-old surfacing on the Internet. But Lewis claims that in the weeks that followed, the beauty queen did not step up to the plate.

"Since that time it has become abundantly clear that Carrie is unwilling to fulfill her obligations under our contract and work together," Lewis' statement continued.

Essentially, when you don't show up for work, you get fired.

Don't be too surprised if the controversy/dethroning winds up leading to a bigger spotlight than she might otherwise have received. There's arguably no better known "Miss America" than Vanessa Williams, and she too was stripped of her title amidst controversy.

Such circumstances often make beauty queens more memorable than if they just led uneventful year long reigns.

(and yes, I realize some of the male members here won't get past reading "Miss California Stripped...")

She'll forever be remembered as the beauty queen who stood up to homo oppression.

I think the photos that surfaced probably had more to do with her being let go than her statement to P. Hilton.

Flap from that had pretty much blown over.

Honestly, I'm taking it at face value. I think she didn't show up for some appearances they wanted her to (probably nothing political, just standard beauty queen stuff) and they dumped her for it.

People on both sides of the political spectrum will likely put their own spin on it, but I'm taking a Foxish "it is what it is" view of the whole thing.

All intentional on her part I am sure. At this point with all of that media coverage, miss california title is holding her back and costing her money. She doesn't need it anymore.

True, but I think that after the photos showed up, she was on a pretty tight leash. Any screwups and she was gone. And she screwed up by not showing up.

It wasn't her fault. I set the alarm to 6 PM by accident. I blame myself.

It's pretty obvious she'll do anything for attention. She probably didn't show up to something knowing she would get another run in the papers for it.
