Breaking! Carrie Prejean Keeps Crown, Says Trump
Praise Jesus! Donald Trump will let Miss California Carrie Prejean keep her crown. He says the topless shots of her are "fine," reports the Tucson Citizen; we maintain that they don't show enough of her breasts, and that she should arch her back more. Trump, who runs the Miss USA franchise, also was okay with Prejean's anti-gay-marriage statement at the Miss USA pageant: "It was the same answer the President of the United States gave... She gave an honorable answer. She gave an answer from her heart." Trump further suggested that Prejean and Miss California pageant officials are in harmony, too -- though yesterday they appointed her runner-up, Tami Farrell, to fill in for her, with the newly-invented title, "Beauty of California Ambassador."
Meanwhile Prejean herself claims the TMZ photos that broke this morning are "photoshopped." Well, of course they are -- these are professional photographers we're talking about here.
