Carrie Prejean, the Miss California, who recently gave her answer on gay marriage to blogger Perez Hilton during the Miss USA pageant, is twittering her frustrations about Hilton on the social texting website.
Hilton made hay with the news on his blog that Carrie Prejean had breast augmentation surgery just weeks before that competition.
CBS reports that the Miss California Pageant Co-Director Keith Lewis confirmed this news on The Early Show Friday. He also said reports that the Miss California pageant helped pay for the operation “were true.”
Prejean has twittered her thoughts about Hilton post-incident.
“I’ll give up my Miss California crown and stop speaking for the NOM (National Organization for marriage) if Perez (Hilton) gives up his website. Promise. Let’s see who’s about money now,” she wrote today.
Prejean notes in previous twitters that the girl who died at Colombine died for her standing up for her belief in God.
Prejean twitters at 11:44 AM Apr 29th: “During the Columbine School shootings… One of the young girls that was hiding under the desk was approached by one of the gunmen…” 11:47 AM Apr 29th: “She knew, from hearing him ask a previous victim, that if she answered, ‘Yes” he would shoot her…” 11:46 AM Apr 29th from web
“The gunman pointed his gun at her and asked her, ‘Do you believe in God?’11:49 AM Apr 29th:”She wiped her tears and said, ‘Yes, I do belive in God!’ And those were the last words she spoke on this earth….”She is my hero.”
Prejean wound up as runner-up to Miss North Carolina for the Miss USA crown.
Regarding the breast augmentation, Lewis added, “It’s not something that we endorse, nor is it something that we suggest…But when we meet with the title-holder, when she’s crowned Miss California, we put to her a litany of questions about how she feels about herself, what she feels she needs to work on, what she may need to change, what is good, what is not good. We want to put her in the best possible confidence in order to present herself in the best possible light on a national stage.”
Later, Lewis added, “I think that we have to look at the way that we perceive real women, and whether that needs to be changed in the media. But you see it in television. You see it in advertising. It may be part of this pageantry, as well. But I think it’s prevailing to everywhere, not just in one area.”Note the date on this article may be incorrect due to importing it from our old system.
