Carrie Prejean removes mic on Larry King, tries to leave: ‘you’re inappropriate’

Carrie Prejean got all indignant and nearly stormed off the set of Larry King Live last night, calling Larry’s questions about the mediation in her lawsuit against the Miss California pageant “inappropriate” repeatedly as if she was scolding a naughty kindergartner. She got flustered with King’s questions about her settlement, and called the details “confidential,” pulling off her mic and threatening to leave when Larry took a call.

Before that, Prejean repeated the exact same talking points she used on Hannity and The Today Show – there’s a campaign against her, the “liberal media” attacks conservative women more than the other side, and the whole issue with the Miss California pageant is about her response to the gay marriage question. She even called Sarah Palin her “hero.” She did admit that she got fired from the pageant for “supposed contract violations, not making appearances, and I guess being hard to work with.” At least she knows what she’s accused of.

Radar Online is reporting that Carrie stormed off set after taking off her mic. She may have, but she came back after the break and continued to answer questions. She came across as a petulant child who took offense to a simple, non-threatening question. Carrie’s other issue was that Larry took a call from a viewer right after he upset her with his simple line of questioning. Supposedly the show worked out a deal with Carrie’s people that no calls would be accepted.

Here’s the transcript that shows what went down. The video segment where Carrie takes off her microphone and gets all pissy is above. You can watch the first part of the interview on CNN’s website.

KING: We’re back with Carrie Prejean. She’s the author of “Still Standing.” That book is available everywhere. We’ll take a call or two for Carrie in a moment. You sued the pageant after they fired you. They counter-sued. And then you accused them of a number of things including religious discrimination, clearly an issue very important to you. Why did you settle? You don’t have to tell me the terms of the settlement. But why settle, since you had a fight to carry on?

PREJEAN: Larry, everything that was discussed in mediation — I’ll say it again — is completely confidential. I’m not going to be able to talk about that. So I’m just letting you know that ahead of time.

KING: So you can’t even say why you settled? That’s not — how does that break what you settled for. I’m not asking you what the settlement was.

PREJEAN: It’s a confidential agreement and I’m not allowed to talk about that. So —

KING: So the agreement discusses the motive behind why each party agreed?

PREJEAN: Larry, you’re being inappropriate. You really are. So I’m not going to —

KING: What? I’m asking a question.

PREJEAN: I’m not going to talk about anything discussed in mediation. It was a confidential settlement.

KING: All I’m asking — so — All right. So what you’re saying is, in mediation, it was discussed why you were mediating?

PREJEAN: Larry, it’s completely confidential. And you’re being inappropriate, OK?

KING: All right. Inappropriate King Live continues. Detroit, hello.

CALLER: Hi, calling from Detroit. I’m a gay man and I love pageants. I’m sure that you, Carrie, have got great gay friends that helped you possibly win. What would you gave them as advice if they wanted to get married?

KING: Did you hear the question, Carrie? Did she hear the question? Is she leaving because I asked what motivated the settlement?

PREJEAN: Excuse me?

KING: Did you hear the question?

PREJEAN: No, I can’t hear you.

KING: You took the mike off. You put the mike on, you can hear.

PREJEAN: I think you’re being extremely inappropriate right now. And I’m about to leave your show.

KING: Well, so I went to another area. I took a phone call. They asked a question of you. I left that subject. You feel it was inappropriate? I didn’t mean to be inappropriate. I just thought it was a logical question. But you need to have a mike. Who are you talking to?

Hello? We’ll be back right after these messages on LARRY KING LIVE.


KING: We’re back with Carrie Prejean. I did not certainly mean to ask you a question — you don’t want to take phone calls, right?

PREJEAN: Yes, that was the agreement that you had with my publicist.

KING: No one told me. I didn’t know we weren’t supposed to take phone calls. And I meant nothing of the question.

PREJEAN: Right, and this is you and I talking and I appreciate that.

KING: OK. What are you going to do next?

PREJEAN: Oh, my gosh. I’m just so excited to be, you know, promoting this book. I’m so excited to be an author now. It’s really great that — I’m 22 years old, and I think that I’ve accomplished so much. And I think that there is definitely a message out there to spread to young women and that is, you know, never do anything that you wouldn’t want your biggest fans to see or, you know, never do anything that, heaven forbid, your dad would see.


This girl is such a piece of work. All she had to do was tell Larry she was legally bond not to discuss the settlement. She could have smiled and said she was so sorry but she was honoring her agreement. Instead she got all mad and tried to seem like the authority in a conversation with a seasoned interviewer on a major cable network. The more Carrie does press for her book, the more she shows why she got fired and ended up having to drop her lawsuit. She is a snotty, difficult person with a persecution complex.

TMZ reports that the guy Carrie sent her “solo sex tape” to claims she asked him to lie and say she was only 17 so it wouldn’t be published. He tells TMZ that Carrie was 20 when she made the tape, not 17. He reportedly wanted $10,000 for it, and I bet some outlet will pony up and it will soon hit the ‘net. Oh goody.

    The problem is that she is so completely stupid that she doesn’t know the difference between the legal terms of an agreement which cannot be discussed and her motivations behind it, mainly her I Touch Myself tape coming to light, which she can discuss.

  2. 88Modesty88 says:

    She’s so good at making an a** of herself. She obviously does not need any help…

  3. Firestarter says:


  4. DoMaJoReMc says:

    She’s just PISSED because she got caught with HER HANDS DOWN HER PANTS shall we say. Now she is acting all indignant. Carrie: STFU.

  5. Whitey Fisk says:

    Anyone who thinks Larry King is even remotely capable of asking hard-hitting, inappropriate, or controversial questions is a moron. The man doesn’t even know who he is half the time. CB you hit the nail on the head with the term “persecution complex”. If she’s comfortable with her stance on politics, why does she act so paranoid and defensive when asked about it?

  6. mihaela says:

    oh my god, she is so stupid!

  7. Mairead says:

    Well at least she learnt one lesson from that great Conservative politican, Margaret Thatcher – NEVER let the public ask you a question live on air.

    Although this drama queen’s “poor ickle me” nonsense is hardly hard-hitting questions about the sinking of
    the Belgrano during the Falklands War. 🙄

    (in – yet- another article about this woman I compared her complaint to an identical one Hillary Clinton had some years back. Although the situations are hugely different, this silly girl should do a bit of modern history and realise that Hillary was savaged for commenting about a “right wing conspiracy” against her family. Mainly in the “liberal media” too.)

  8. Lara says:

    Whoa she’s only 22?

  9. Praise St. Angie! says:

    so funny…Whitey Fisk is right…Larry King is not exactly known for his “hard-hitting” questions.

    she couldn’t even take a interview with softball Larry?

    no wonder Palin is her “hero”. follows her MO to a t…dodge questions and then claim everyone is out to get you with their inappropriate questioning. you know, like asking what newspapers you read.

  10. Really? says:

    The ’15-minutes of fame’ alloted for this dumb ass expired months ago.

  11. Cristina says:

    Why is liberal media on quotes? It’s undeniable

  12. Ethel says:

    Beauty queens drive me crazy. A family member is dating one who will be in the Miss America pagent this year and she is such a bitch. All smiles when she has to be. I love watching “King of the Crown” on TLC because 90% of these contestants act just like Carrie. I will not purchase her book and I hope it ends up in the 99cent bin. As for her sex tape…how could she have had such a heavy duty christian awakening after creating this? The woman needs some mental health work. It’s like she’s two personalities in one. BTW, my relatives girlfriend doesn’t stand a chance of winning unless she too gets a boob job. She is probably an A cup and I don’t think she’ll stand out from the competition although she is quite pretty. I wonder if she will get one – still a few months from the pageant.

  13. bros says:

    st. angie, exactly right.

  14. snowball says:

    She is the most consistently moronic thing I’ve seen lately. She wants to push her fluff book offering “help” to young girls, as if they’re actually going to run out and buy this piece of dung, but her interviews are nothing more than commercials her publicist wrote.

    Give her any question with even a tiny bit of substance and she freaks out and resorts to the kind of bull that Hannity creature barfs out. “Left wing Satan trying to attack me because I dared to have an opinion!!”

    No Carrie, you have no opinion other than what someone put in that vacant lot you call a brain.

  15. gg says:

    Oh dear. It’s past the time to be shutting the eff up, child. Why is this woman ‘news’ every day (it seems like)? Haven’t we already all twigged she is useless?

  16. Molly B says:

    Ugh. She reminds me of her hero Sarah Palin in that they both seem to operate under the misconception that a interview is another word for “soapbox.” Therefore, being asked any questions at all or being challenged in anyway is “unfair” and “gotcha!”.

  17. Tess says:

    Here’s the thing….Larry King throws softball questions at his guests unless he considers them conservative.

    It’s the double standard that’s really killing media credibility.

  18. irishserra says:

    This girl is an idiot…

  19. Ted says:

    The only thing she said so far, that made since is that a marriage should be between a man and a woman.

    She could have at least had a lawyer with her to tell her what to say or not or to fill in where she didn’t know how to say it!
    And from the things coming to light it looks like she needs to clean up her life too.
    Immoral behavior is wrong between any sexes.
    If your going to act as a part of the moral minority you need to be moral yourself, or confess to your past wrongs and go clean from here on.

  20. 88Modesty88 says:

    Tess, regardless of whether Larry throws softballs to his faves and curveballs to those he dislikes — wouldn’t it be better if the woman could actually give a straight answer?!

  21. Cinderella says:

    Gosh Carrie, why so uptight? Sounds like someone needs to go home and masturbate.

  22. AiOi says:

    So stupid. So retarded. Next!

  23. She-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named says:

    Teri’s right, she didn’t even understand his question.

  24. Tess says:

    88Modesty, I’m not defending Carrie Prejean.

    I’m criticizing the intolerance and bias of cultural elites—who dominate in academia and the media—against conservatives.

  25. 88Modesty88 says:

    I’m not American, so it would be unfair of me to comment on that. I have just found that there is always a degree of intolerance on both sides of the divide.

  26. Judy says:

    Why does anyone give that MORON the time of day…she looks 40, not 22, and acts like she’s 3.

  27. MSat says:

    Tess, I guess you missed Larry’s show when John McCain was the week before the election. The two were clearly buddies and Larry lobbed one softball after another.

    I don’t think it has anything to do with her beliefs and everything to do with Larry not liking some stupid twat putting restrictions on what he’s allowed to do on his own damn show.

  28. Anna says:

    I am continuously amazed that while this woman obviously can’t get anything right or understand the simplest questions, she still gets so much attention and has fans and supporters. Somebody put that waste of genes out of its misery!

  29. Praise St. Angie! says:

    “cultural elites”?

    like who? and how are they “culturally elite”?

    I heard that talking point a LOT during the latest presidential campaign, and I still don’t understand exactly what is meant by that.

    (MSat, don’t be too logical…their widdle brains just can’t handle it. They want to believe in the EEEEEEEEVIL “liberal media”, regardless of the fact that it doesn’t exist, because that way it’s easier to blame their shortcomings on someone other than themselves.)

  30. MSat says:

    “Culturally elite” = “Able to think for yourself”

    Just like “Un-American” = “Not blindly following party lines”

    You’re welcome! 😉

  31. Tess says:

    MSat, King’s ratings are dismal, like CNN’s in general.

    So yeah, they’re free to promote their agenda, which is far-left with a few notable exceptions like McCain, but I think the general public is seeing the intolerance and lack of repect for other points of view, and doesn’t like it.

  32. Trillion says:

    People like Prejean me wonder if the movie Idiocracy is actually a documentary.

  33. Trillion says:

    Tess, what constitutes “far left”? I see no far left in any of our politicians, much less in the “news” media. They’re all too bought and paid for by corporations, who really rule this country, to be far left.

  34. Praise St. Angie! says:

    ok, since one question wasn’t answered, I’ll ask another.

    how is CNN’s agenda “far-left”? can you provide examples of that?

    (MSat, I realize YOU answered, but I’d like the person who put that out there to give me his/her take on what it means. Since they believe in and use that term, after all…)

  35. KateNonymous says:

    I don’t much care for Larry King, but I did like this line:

    KING: All right. Inappropriate King Live continues.

  36. MeowBea says:

    Hate this b*tch!

  37. snowball says:

    “KING: All right. Inappropriate King Live continues.”

    Wasn’t that awesome?! I also loved the faces (if the Crypt Keeper made faces) he kept making when she kept calling him inappropriate. It looked just like the frustration parents get when their kid can’t understand why it’s not okay to flush an entire role of toilet paper.

  38. blondie says:

    WTF does she do interviews if she can’t/won’t discuss anything? Just to be seen? She’s so aggravating.

  39. Tess says:

    Trillion, I think the politicians rule the country by virtue of their power to pass the laws that regulate business and other aspects of life in this country.

    Now, as evidence, I would cite the millons and millons of dollars that businesses contribute to the political campaigns of politicians. And by the way, dollars to the Dems exceed dollars to the Repubs.

    The power to regulate is huge.

  40. bondbabe says:

    Again, maybe she wouldn’t be “attacked” by the “liberal media” if she wouldn’t prop herself up in front of them. Just a thought….

  41. girl says:

    You know, I defended her at the time of the pageant. She can think what she wants to about gay marriage.

    But now I think she is completely out of her depth and needs to just go away.

    After we see her sex tape 😉

  42. GatsbyGal says:

    Oh PLEASE let her sex tape leak onto the internet. This dumb bitch needs to just disappear for like 10 years.

  43. River says:

    @ Tess: “I’m criticizing the intolerance and bias of cultural elites—who dominate in academia and the media—against conservatives. ”

    Dear conservatives: From the assumption that liberals are more prevalent in academia, there are presented two scenarios- Either conservatives aren’t pursuing higher education or the greater the education, the more liberal you become. The best way to fix the ‘domination [of liberals] in academia’ is to seek out education in the highest levels.
    But, that’s assuming that with knowledge (and a better understanding of politics, humanity, science, etc.) THERE DOES NOT come greater (liberal leaning, humanitarian) responsibility…

  44. Katyusha says:

    Prejean said Palin “is doing great things.”

    I didn’t realize gunning down families of wolves and bears from helicopters and messing up the balance of the ecosystem is great. Man, I hate both of them. I like to think of myself as a lady, but I’d like to spit at both of them.

    Regarding her interview with King, it’s almost like she couldn’t figure out what he was asking, so she thought she’d cover her bases by saying everything is inappropriate. What an idiot.

  45. Praise St. Angie! says:

    yet still no answer on what a cultural elitist is or example of how exactly CNN is “far-left”.

    I’ll wait.

  46. Praise St. Angie! says:

    “From the assumption that liberals are more prevalent in academia, there are presented two scenarios- Either conservatives aren’t pursuing higher education or the greater the education, the more liberal you become.”

    thank you river, I was going to point that out as well, but you said it better than I could have.

  47. girl says:

    Actually the wolf cull has helped correct an imbalance that was man-made. It actually happened pretty quickly. Do I agree with the way the cull is done (aerial-hunting that rarely lends itself to a clean (less painful for the wolf) kill)? Not really but Alaska is so huge that it is the only really practical way.

  48. girl says:

    I have lived in Alaska for nearly 10 years and I am unaware of there being talk of a bear cull here.

  49. Katyusha says:


    You just made my point, if that’s the case. “The wolf cull has helped an imbalance that was man made.”

    Man (see: Palin) should stop messing with nature.

    As far as I know, Palin is hunting predators to make caribou and moose more plentiful for HUMANS to hunt. She’s messing with the ecosystem, period.

    But I’m glad you seem to condone the suffering of wolves because it’s “practical.”
    Hey, how about leave them alone?

  50. Whitey Fisk says:

    Nicely said, River.

  51. kris says:


  52. TaylorB says:

    Larry King wouldn’t know a ‘hardball’ question if you stapled it to his head, regardless of the party affiliation of the guest. King isn’t ‘right’ or ‘left’ he is an entertainer, not some journalist, not to mention half the time I wonder if he even knows who he is talking to.

  53. The Old KC says:

    River – is THAT what’s wrong with me? Sheesh, as I got older I noticed I started growing more liberal and suddenly started caring about people, wanting health care for everybody including the poor and unemployed, not understanding why people hate people of other cultures and religions when they are, at their core, human just like us, and suddenly developing an acute allergy to idiocy displayed by Carrie Prejean and Sarah Palin and their ilk. I thought there was something wrong with me but thank you! You’ve pointed out it’s my education that caused this! It totally makes sense now – I’m simply smart! Damn, I can’t reverse this education though. NOW what am I gonna do? ; )

  54. veda says:

    I really really want her sex tape to come out in public. Just so she can be humiliated by it and go away forever.

  55. Dishy says:

    The media really baffles me. Inordinate amounts of media are wasted on idiots like this or Lindsay Lohan or Paris Hilton when there are SO MANY important things to use your brain matter on. The dumbing down of American continues….

  56. ! says:

    “From the assumption that liberals are more prevalent in academia, there are presented two scenarios- Either conservatives aren’t pursuing higher education or the greater the education, the more liberal you become.”

    And this is actually statistically reliable. Not only that have you ever seen a demographic map of the Red States, poor education, and fundamentalism? Unsurprisingly, they’re pretty much the same map.

  57. Mairead says:

    Dishy, sweetheart – it’s bleedin’ everywhere.

    Considering I consider myself an ould dyed-in-the-wool liberal lefty, I’m kind of wondering how CNN could possibly be construed as far-left. Have I missed al the programming promoting a Socialist economic utopia? CNN is perhaps left of centre, but it’s still pretty much middle of the road. As is the what I’ve seen of the European edition of Fox News, which is generally right of centre, with the exception of blowhards like O’Reilly (ich).
    But considering that most people tend to get more conservative as they grow older, and let’s face it, the people running the media are hardly wet behind the ears – I just don’t see major news networks or media outlets being overtly socialist.

    Or perhaps “left-wing” should be better defined. Are we talking about being socially or fiscally conservative here?

    Either way – I’m getting sick of this tramp. i mean, how many people are actually believing her moral-schtick. I can buy that she’s politically right wing, but I don’t believe for a second that she’s that holy.

  58. Roma says:

    Prejean has typical catholic school girl logic: “If I take it in the bum, it isn’t sex and god isn’t mad at me”.

    As some point her morality issues and logic got all intermingled and since she can’t succinctly explain her points, she just gets all flustered and doesn’t want to talk about it anymore. Essentially I think she’s incapable of making a rational argument and her talking points seem to be “because god said” or “I’m being persecuted.”

    Be offensive if you’d like to be, Ms. Prejean. Just have the balls to back it up.

  59. Trillion says:

    Tess, You never answered the question “what constitutes the far left”. Oh well. I’m totally against this “team” politics thing, as if one must be “far” left or “far” right. Most of us fall somewhere else along the graph, no? Notice I said “politicians” are bought and paid for by corps. What we have is business growing too powerful to regulate fairly. For the good of the commonwealth, some things should simply not be capital driven. Decreasing regulation is more right than left, as we all should know at this point. But as long as the bribes flow, Big Business will get its way. Both parties make empty promises to their constituents to stay in power. It’s sickening and it won’t change without campaign reform, term limits and criminalizing bribes and war profiteering. The “Team Politics” thing just keeps the rabble (us) from seeing the real problems.

  60. BEN says:

    Tess didn’t answer it because she is an idiot clearly. Calling CNN far left is ridiculous (just as ridiculous as calling fox far right).
    And people who complain about the ‘cultural elite’ running things, usually I think they really mean, I don’t like these smart people uses logic that interfere with my emotional, ridiculous decisions.

  61. DD says:

    bhaha, it’s easy to make a career out of being a nut case with a persecution complex. The public need something to make fun of.

  62. AJ says:

    What a moran…This girl is beyond Stupid..what is incredible is she doesn’t even know it.

  63. NFLer says:

    Her teeth look different, guess she got teeth job too.

  64. Bambi says:

    Dumb dumb dumb dumb, DUMB!

  65. For Sooth? says:

    I defend her right to her belief about gay marriage but now she should stop talking and find a career in something other than show biz or pageantry. And I don’t think she’s stupid, just like the posters on here who have different beliefs than me are not stupid, she has BEHAVED stupidly.

    But it is time to go, dear.

  66. K McFarlane says:

    You know, I’ll bet she thinks she did a great job of putting Larry in his place and that she came off brilliantly.

  67. MSat says:

    The only mistake Larry made was not letting her walk off and stay off. That would have been AWESOME. He could have spent the rest of the show taking calls from people busting on her. Best hour ever!

  68. DoMaJoReMc says:

    @ VEDA

    Oh, my God, that would be the greatest thing! Watch her squirm (excuse the pun) once this gets leaked and she is absolutely humiliated. That’s what she needs to shut her up.

    Quick!!!! Where is it?

  69. Jag says:

    I so want that video to get out. Not because I want to watch it – cos I don’t – but because she won’t be able to live it down.
