Miss California: What's My Age Again?
It sounds like Miss California Carrie Prejean's pants are on fire—and not because she's so hot or anything.
TMZ reports that Prejean—who's stirred no small amount of public debate with her opinions on gay marriage—was less than truthful about the topless photos of her that were leaked onto the Internet last week.
When the pics made headlines, Prejean's publicist, Melany Ethridge, told the press that the beauty-queen to be was just 17 at the time of the photo-session, and was duped into posing by an opportunistic agent.
"In her naivete, an agent convinced her to pose for this photo to submit to a lingerie company, claiming they could make her the next Victoria's Secret model," Ethridge claimed at the time. "She has since learned what a lie that was, and what a mistake it was to have the photo taken."
But apparently, that was somewhere outside the realm of veracity.
TMZ notes that they obtained an e-mail from one of her former pageant sponsors, indicating that Prejean had sent him one of the topless pics on January 6, 2009—the same day that she got a boob job. The sponsor indicates that the photo was taken post-breast surgery.
Meaning that Prejean, who's currently 21, was well past 18, let alone 17, when the pics were taken.
She must think the rest of the world is as naive as she claims she was.
Readers, have your say in the comments section: Do you think Carrie Prejean should be dethroned because of her topless photos and lack of truthfulness?
