Carrie Prejean fired and replaced with Tami Farrell – again

surveillance premiere 160609
Pageant directors Carrie Prejean’s lack of respect for her obligations to be the main reason they decided to fire her as Miss California USA. Her replacement was Tami Farrell, Miss Malibu and the runner-up in the Miss CA USA pageant. Now Carrie has been fired as the spokesperson for Sledge USA clothing line. She was supposed to start representing the fall line soon, but she refused to set a definitive date for important events like photo shoots. So, Sledge USA decided to follow the Miss California pageant’s lead and hire Tami Farrell instead. A representative for the brand says that the decision was made after pageant directors lauded Tami’s easy demeanor.

“She did not keep her appointments at all. She refused to confirm a time and date, even though we were on a very tight schedule,” Nisim tells E! News, adding that “it had nothing to do with her being let go as Miss California.”

As for Prejean’s Sledge sub? It’s a matter of déjà vu…

The former Miss California USA is going to be replaced by current titleholder Tami Farrell.

Nisim says the decision to fire Prejean was made last week and the company had originally considered replacing her with Miss Teen USA, Stevi Perry. But Sledge went with Farrell after viewing her portfolio and discussing the matter with Keith Lewis, the executive director of Miss California USA.

“We have not worked with Tami before, but we understand from the Miss California people that she’s great to work with, very sweet,” says Nisim. Farrell’s campaign shoot will take place tomorrow in Beverly Hills.

The firing and hiring occurred within days of the photo shoot, so one can only imagine how long Carrie had put off scheduling a date. That’s not much turn-around time for getting the shoot ready. But Sledge USA is an active wear brand, so alterations (if there are any) will probably be much easier than if this were a couture photo shoot.

We said yesterday that Tami would probably benefit from stepping into the shoes of such an infamously demanding predecessor, and it looks like that’s the case.

  1. It’s about time “nice” beat “nasty”! Or maybe it really beat “lazy”…

  2. Anastasia says:

    The new Miss California has less of a tranny looking face, she has a more unique beauty, some personality in her face. I’d much rather see that than some generic Barbie doll look.

    And it sounds like she’s about a thousand times easier to work with than Miss Diva. Even at Fox News they’ll get sick of that crap.

  3. SolitaryAngel says:

    HAHAHAHAHHA! Now maybe this vapid b!tch might begin to get a clue that she isn’t such a hot commodity.

    Cue the whining interviews blaming her gay marriage stance as the culprit in…5..4..3..2..

  4. Rosanna says:

    Boy! Tami Farrell doesn’t look nearly as good though.

  5. Zoe (The Other One) says:

    Ha, this bad fortune couldn’t have happened to a more deserving person.

    She is reaping what she sowed.

    New Miss CA is a bajillion times more attractive too.

  6. Obvious says:

    Tami has the girl next door look, it’s much more appealing t the masses than the sex-pot (which carrie strives for and fails). Congrats to Tami.

  7. Nah says:

    The new girl looks like Tila Tequila’s cousin. Carrie is def prettier.

  8. Anoneemouse says:

    Was it really a dream of Carrie Prejean to win the title? If that is truly the case, what is she so busy doing that would prevent her from her duties? If she already started out being a diva it would not have had a happy ending anyway. Good ridance to her – methinks we’ll see her in pages of Playboy very soon.

  9. danielle says:

    I think Tami’s much prettier also. The other one looks very plastic-y and I always seems to wear a ton of makeup – maybe not as pretty not made up?

  10. Nony says:

    I never ‘got’ why Carrie was considered beautiful in the first place – she looks like she took a barbie doll in to a plastic surgeon’s office and told him to make her look like that.

    Tami looks very pretty and very personable. It sounds like she’s a much better choice all around.

  11. Sarah says:

    Prejean is a nightmare, blaming everyone else for her lack of manners and complete disrespect for other people’s work and schedules.

    She got what she deserves.

  12. Christina X says:

    I don’t expect much from this one either…it’s just a superficial contest…

    But comparing the two, at least this girl doesn’t have a major stick up her ass, and she looks cute. Carrie Prejean looked like the love child of Jessica Simpson and Gary Busey…in my opinion.

  13. Emily Waltz says:

    Tami looks prettier than Carrie. Carrie was slutty looking to me. I just don’t get why there was so much discord between Carrie and officials. I wonder why didn’t Tami win from the start to avoid all this. This thing became a joke when they kept Carrie only to finally let her go and now both sides claim to want to sue each other. Carrie would have been better to have never come close to winning Miss USA or even Miss California. Carrie Prejean was a nightmare. Her stupid bitchy attitude did her in. The National Organization for Marriage and “The Right” wants Carrie to be their slut.

  14. McDLT says:

    I would say don’t believe anything Carrie “Barbie doll” Prejean says. She has been proven to be a liar by emails that came out recently showing her to not want to work with California Officials. Carrie has a heart full of hate and was not willing to do what she was told which was her job. In fact, I wouldn’t listen to her anymore. Tammi Farrell is the real Miss California now and is much prettier. Tammi is a a good person, a patriot, for stepping up and taking over for Barbie doll Carrie after she was ruining The Miss USA pageant organizations reputation. Tammi has a real American look to her. Tammi is a very beautiful girl next door. I wish her well. I want her to succeed as Miss California. I also want Carrie to keep failing so she can learn a lesson. Tammi is a friendly woman, I would say after seeing her on Larry King, and isn’t stuck up like Carrie. Carrie needs to go away for her 15 minutes are over.

    YES! You nailed it.
