Guest Blog: Miss California Fired (Finally!)

By Susan Cross, Open Salon

Buh Bye Now!

Finally, a little sanity in an otherwise crazy world. Carrie Prejean has been stripped of her “Miss California USA 2009” title. It was only a month or so ago that Donald Trump (who is the owner of the Miss Universe Organization) opted to allow her to maintain her title in spite of semi-nude photos surfacing, her lying about the existence of said photos, and in my mind, the more important issue of her answer to Perez Hilton’s question regarding her position on gay marriage (she’s against it).

So if none of that was enough in Miss Universe executive director Keith Lewis’s or Donald Trump’s mind to warrant firing her, I was shocked to hear that she had indeed been let go. What was the deciding infraction? According to Trump it was her failure to “honor her contract with the Miss California USA Organization.” Apparently you can be a liar, a semi-nude model, and a homophobe as long as you show up at your scheduled appearances.

Thank God she did not. Good riddance Carrie.

Congratulations Tami Farrell, Miss Malibu.
Miss California USA 2009
