Carrie Prejean sues Miss CA pageant, claims religious discrimination

Atlanta Falcons vs St. Louis Rams pre-season football

Former Miss California (and Perez Hilton bête noire) Carrie Prejean is so mad! She’s so mad she’s going to throw a little temper tantrum through the California court system. She’s going to wail and cry and stomp her feet, and if that doesn’t work, she’ll probably drop to the floor of Wal-Mart and start rolling around, sobbing loudly. As you might have guessed, no one was paying attention to Carrie Prejean anymore, and she’s decided to sue the Miss California pageant. The charges include libel, infliction of emotional distress (she got a boo-boo on her psyche) and religious discrimination.

This is happening after most of us forgot about the insanity that is this whack-job’s martyr complex. After she got dissed by the pageant committee for being an insolent, unprofessional, lazy, hypocritical liar, her ass was saved by Donald Trump, who called her “strong, tough, smart and very beautiful.” Less than a month later (the second week of June), Carrie was fired, for good this time. When Carrie made some vague lawsuit threats when she was first fired, the Miss California pageant struck back quickly, giving a laundry list of reasons for why Carrie had not fulfilled her contract. They accused Carrie of “churlish insolent misbehavior,” “intolerable misbehavior,“ and “hostile communications.” They also had a record of Carrie turning down 39 pageant related appearances in one month. Of course, Carrie still thought she was persecuted and “set up” because of her conservative views. And now she’s got “evidence”:

Former Miss California USA Carrie Prejean has filed a complaint against pageant officials, Keith Lewis and Shanna Moakler, has learned.

The complaint, filed in the Superior Court of California, cites damages to Prejean including libel, public disclosure of private facts, religious discrimination, intentional infliction of emotional distress and negligent infliction of emotional distress.

“To us it’s outrageous what happened,” Prejean’s attorney, Charles S. LiMandri, told exclusively. “There’s no doubt in our minds, that if she had answered that question at the Miss USA pageant differently she’d probably still be Miss USA right now, but she’d definitely still be Miss California.”

In a statement obtained by, Limandri explained: “Over the past two months we have worked hard to provide overwhelming evidence that Carrie Prejean did not violate her contract with Miss California USA and did not deserve to have her title revoked by Keith Lewis. We will make the case that her title was taken from her solely because of her support of traditional marriage. Keith Lewis has refused to clear her good name or even to admit any wrongdoing. Therefore, Carrie Prejean is left with no alternative but to take her case to court where she expects to be fully vindicated.”

A comment call to Shanna Moakler’s rep was not returned.

Is it just me or does Carrie’s lawyer make it sound like the idea of proving that Carrie might have a legal leg to stand on is really, really difficult? I think it’s the way he says “…we have worked hard to provide overwhelming evidence that Carrie Prejean did not violate her contract…” (emphasis mine). Look, if you want to know what a liar this girl is, just see all of the crap she’s said over the past six months. She’s insane. And as far as the religious discrimination stuff… good Lord! Get off the cross, people need the wood. It’s an insult to the genuine religious persecution that goes on in the world.

    Being against gay marriage is not a religious statement.

  2. Kaboom says:

    Stupidity is not a religion. But anything to stay in the headlines, right sweetums?

  3. QB says:

    When she posed naked I think she broke the contract.

  4. ! says:

    She should look up what the Bible has to say about modesty, and keeping your word.

  5. Beth says:

    Carrie just wants attention. Donald Trump gave her a second chance and she blew it. He supported the CA pagent when she was fired and even publically said that she treated everybody poorly and refused to do any of the Miss California appearrances.

  6. Diane says:

    This is the only way CP can gain press attention. I believe she has only had minor speaking engagements at various Repub locations.

    She is simply a non-entity, beauty pageant winner. The suit, imo, goes nowhere.

  7. Sara says:

    I don’t believe posing naked is approved of in the Bible…so I guess she gets to pick and choose when to stand up for her religion

  8. wow says:

    I do believe she was discriminated against due to her response to the question she was given. However she did also do those provacative photo-shoots which are against the pageant rules, so… that part is on her.

  9. OXA says:

    I bet The Donald is glad he fired her.
    Can he sue she for her ignorance, his legal fees and can he get back the boobs they pageant paid for?

  10. Praise St. Angie! says:

    WORD, Hieronymus Grex.

  11. mollyb says:

    It is not “discrimination” for people to find your views ignorant and laughable. Just as it is your right to hold those views, it is the right of others to agree or disagree. “Boo-hoo, people don’t like my prejudices and are judging me for them. That’s discrimination!” N

  12. Sudini says:

    Hah! Ya, Molly B – good point. She’s made a career out of allowing people to judge her. And suddenly she feels the need (or the entitlement) to sue? She’s a liar and a bigot and has found that she likes the money and attention she gets when playing the victim.

    She’s really a disgrace.

  13. ElizabethM says:

    I have no doubt whatsoever that Jesus is so proud she claims to be a Christian. Just look how he hated on the gays….oh wait….he didn’t.

    F*cking hypocrite. I wonder if we can get Chris Brown to date her.

  14. Michelle says:

    Just what the already broke-ass state of California needs: yet another frivolous, meritless, and just plain ridiculous lawsuit.

    The Pageant and/or it’s affiliates ought to countersue her ass for breach of contract, given the evidence of her shirking her responsibilities and for misconduct. Put her in her place so she’ll go away for good already.

  15. bros says:

    ahahahhaah thats the dumbest thing I have ever heard. pageants are like, the most christiany thing around. they are all good church-going god-fearing folk, so thats like bin laden suing the taliban for discrimination.

    what a moron.

  16. Trillion says:

    Christians have some kind of fantasy that they’re discriminated against. Makes them feel like warrior martyrs. All part of their collective soldier for god fetish.

  17. AJ says:

    I’ve read some of the papers her lawyer has filed, and she has a good case. Their “evidence” is pretty much made-up fluff squarely based on pure hatred of her. I don’t care she she thinks about the Bible or what kind of Christian she is, she deserves due process and I hope she gets it.

  18. Lilly says:

    Um…the laundry list of events she was obligated to attend…and skipped…is not “made up fluff”….not to mention that every time the girl opened her mouth lies flowed out like sewage from a portapotty. Shes pathetic.

  19. tick says:

    God…. doesn’t HATE !!! PERIOD !!

    And Jesus was accepting and forgiving and loving. Not ignorant and hate filled.

    People wonder why i haven’t been to church in years. And i am hetero !!!!

  20. IKnowItAll says:

    Any time a Christian in America cries “religious discrimination” it makes my head want to explode. There ain’t no such thing, as long as your Lord and Savior’s birthday is recognized as a national holiday. The Christian Right has it all over every other religion in this country.
    Clueless, fake, entitled Barbie Doll, please STFU.

  21. friendlyskies says:

    Wait – I thought she *wanted* people to be discriminated against because of religion! What other justification is there to oppose equal civil rights for gays?

    And now…she’s angry about being discriminated against because of religion? Good grief, lady, make up your mind.

  22. Green Is Good says:

    Hope the CA Pageant sues her for the cost of her implants that they paid for.

    She’s making a fool of herself; and she’ll end up having to pay all the incurred legal fees of the Respondent(s)when she loses.

  23. Mairead says:

    Ok everyone – let’s pay attention to Little Miss Entitled…. Satisfied now? Good. Then F**K OFF!

    I could give two sh*ts about her religious views but as someone said before, to compare this girl’s “hurt feeeeeeeeeeeeelings* to what other people have gone through in the name of their religion is a mockery.

    I still believe it’s not what she said but the way she said it. And despite her youth I will critiscise her because these pagent types have all sorts of coaching, including interview techniques to beat the band. She continued to be disingenuous just to grab headlines.

  24. Tia says:

    OMG, I am so embarrased for her. She is crazy on a stick, deep fried and dipped in crazy sauce. Her actions are exactly why more and more americans laugh at religion. It is sad. God is not filled with hate as she would like people to believe. However, I am sure her modifying her body (a sin) and posing NAKED is by FAR more worrisome to others than two people who love each other.. WHAT A SHANKAPOTOMUS !! Creepy wierdo with the big horse teeth.

  25. Catherine says:

    Is she really relevant?

  26. Cath says:

    “Oh noes! Everybody forgot about me!”

    -Carrie Prejean

  27. the devil says:

    then she should be COUNTERSUED for discrimination against gays.

    How do you think little miss Tits4Jesus would like them apples ?

  28. oh my says:

    I love this “public disclosure of private facts” in other words, the bitch is complaining that the pageant provided proof that she wasn’t honoring her contract when she thinks they were required to keep that confidential.

  29. assistantrachel says:

    What a big ol pile of horseshit this bitch is….

    STFU already….

  30. Anastasia says:

    What a silly twit. Jesus wept. She’s suing because she feels she was discriminated against because she expressed discriminatory views?

    And that hasn’t made her little wee head explode?

  31. stfu says:

    She looks way old here.

  32. AJ says:

    Yeah, what was this nitwit thinking actually having an opinion? Doesn’t she know women should just shut up and look pretty?

  33. laura says:

    i wonder if/hope this is litigation that can be determined nuisance and she can be fined/prosecuted…that would be some kinda sweet. i’m sure it’s not – so she will then be able to say that the system wronged her and now the liberal leadership doesn’t protect America’s Basic Rights or some relative nonsense…

  34. laura says:

    …and re: those that ask about her relevance, watch fox news in 3 years and let’s revisit. she will be a role-model for (grab your barf bags) the Ann Coulters to Come (but erase initial reaction of ‘hateful and ill-informed’ and insert ’empty-minded-entitled-when-it-suits-me-rules-don’t-apply’ here).

  35. ! says:

    Yeah way to go AJ, acting like this is about her being a woman instead of being a hypocritical bigot who didn’t fulfill her contractual obligations.

    Ass hat.

  36. vicsmith says:

    The real entertainment here is how much this woman can make almost everyone here come unglued. Wow, frothing hate. There are a multitude of twits and asses in the media ever day but this supposedly stupid, airhead, inconsequential chick drives you guys batsh*t nuts! I really hope she gets hired on the Apprentice.

  37. kathleen says:

    wow she really sucks

    too bad the pageant couldn’t buy her a brain

  38. gg says:

    ^^^^ lol @ Vicsmith

    I was raised a Christian and I believe she is missing the point.

    Like most people raised the way they were, I ain’t changing in this life, as I wouldn’t expect anyone from any other religion to change to suit fashion, fad or pressure.

    People do crazy things – it doesn’t follow that Christianity makes people do them, no matter how many people like to generalize. Generalization is bigotry.

    I would say to her, please don’t think being a Christian has anything to do with discrimination or being a public victim. It does not.

  39. Sani says:

    I think her 15 minutes is up for sure. She should stop trying to extend it.

  40. Trashaddict says:

    Hey Carrie, if you wanna be a real Christian, why not try being a Buddhist like Ghandi. Guy had it down better than you do. If you think you are discriminated against on the basis of your religion, try removing the fake nose, fake tits and fake teeth and see how people treat you when your not Barbie-style “attractive”. It will hugely trump (no pun intended?) any bias you feel now.
    This now ends my mini-rant.

  41. Rosanna says:

    CP is entitled to her religious view and fight for their rights as much as gays are entitled to their life style and fight for their rights.

    If somebody would say that gays are “stupid” for wanting their rights, there would be an uproar. But of course you all “enlightened” people can bash at CP and call her a stupid.

    That only shows how biased many of you are… rights for gays is ok, rights for the religious right is not. WOW you’re so democratic and free thinkers.

  42. rzrlvr says:

    Wow. She’s got really big teeth.

  43. asiont says:

    she definitely cannot lose.

  44. Bodhi says:

    She was fired because she failed to live up to her contractual obligations, NOT because she gave a rambling incoherent answer to a question.

    Obviously, everyone is entitled to their beliefs, even ones we may not agree with.

  45. AJ says:

    Person named !, obviously my point is ironic.

    Rosanna, I couldn’t agree with you more. After all, she called gays stupid, nasty, disgusting, bitches, skans, brain-dead bimbos, whores, drew pictures of them with penises in their mouth, etc. Oh wait, actually, that’s what her critics did to her. Tolerance, huh?

  46. Someone says:

    Can’t they countersue her for breach of contract? Didn’t she have those topless/nude pictures taken and that is against the rules of the pagent?

  47. Evie says:

    Rosanna – the difference being, that gays are fighting for civil rights that are wrongfully denied them, and certain Christians are fighting for the right to deny them that.

    I don’t have a problem with religious people believing in sin. I’d like to think we are all equal in the eyes of God, but some people think not… and that’s their right to have that belief. However, we should all be equal in the eyes of the law. Otherwise the law is not valid.

    That being said, I don’t think people hate Carrie Prejean so much for what she said, but for being a huge hypocrite. You can’t hold other people to a standard you aren’t willing to follow yourself. And her willingness to play the victim while victimizing others is just preposterous.

  48. Umm... says:

    It’s no longer “liberal” to be a liberal. You are all now part of a majority. How’s that for thinking “inside the box”? I’m a christian person. And I couldn’t care less if any of you agree or disagree with me. In my experience, it doesn’t make you a good or bad person. Humans are all flawed in their thinking, which has very little to do with religion and more to do with our limited views (each of us views ourselves as our own universe, which leads us to judge others harshly). We’re all afraid of things that we don’t understand. If some of you would quit your tirade for a few minutes and do some research, you’d understand why so many people (religious and otherwise) are pressing for traditional marriage to be the only recognized marital union in our country. The political and judicial replications are astounding, and it would mean that many relgions couldn’t practice their beliefs. It IS persecution.

  49. S says:

    Ok people, geez. Fiorst of all, Tick and Elizabeth and everyone else with similar comments, please post where in the world she said anything about Hating gays or hating anyone? Can’t seem to find it. . . . And A.J., thank you for being the only one to actually read something other than tabloids, then make a statement. The rest of you, Lilly and others, please read the actual documents before you pass judgements. She may or may not have a case, I do not know and you should be saying you don’t know either unless you want to take the time to read something other than this biased rubish, NOT real “journalism.”
