Miss California to Lose Her Tiara?
Posted on May 5, 2009
Over the course of a couple weeks, Carrie Prejean—model, Miss California and marriage moralizer—has kicked up her fair share of controversy, and now she could be in danger of losing her title for taking her crusade against gay marriage past the parameters set by her pageant contract and for posing seminude four years ago.

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.
