Shanna Moakler Resigns Miss USA Post in Protest

Shanna Moakler Resigns Miss USA Post in Protest-photo

People magazine reports that former Miss USA Shanna Moakler resigned from her post as co-director of the Miss California USA organization on Wednesday, in protest over Tuesday's decision by Donald Trump to let the current Miss California, Carrie Prejean, retain her crown.

Prejean was in danger of being dethroned because of topless photos that she had posed for and which were recently leaked onto the Internet, but Moakler's beef with Prejean is her stance on gay marriage. During the Miss USA pageant in April, Prejean professed that she believes marriage should be between a man and a woman.

"I cannot with a clear conscience move forward supporting and promoting the Miss Universe Organization when I no longer believe in it," Moakler stated on Wednesday. "This was a very sad decision for me. I stayed up all night trying to make the right decision."

This is the second about-face on the subject for Moakler. In late April, responding to Prejean's statement, she filmed an ad blasting the California anti-gay marriage initiative Proposition 8 with former Miss California contestants Raquel Beezly and Tamiko Nash. But then, yesterday, Moakler pledged to support Prejean.

Well, it's often been said that it's a woman's prerogative to change her mind. Presumably, that even applies to Shanna Moakler.

    C'mon. Are you surprised Trump wanted to keep Prejean. That guy is a pig. The only reason women hang with him is his (purported) wealth. The guy couldn't run a casino for f*cks sake. How smart can he be?? And that mop he calls hair. If his women had any "balls" they would tell him he looks like a fool, mostly because of that stupid comb over he sports.,

    I think its pretty funny how Carie expresses her beliefs and is bashed, being called eveery mean word for a women under the sun. Not to mention how Perez bashes her in his blog calling her a stupid blonde bitch of some sort. If Carie had called Perez a stupid fat f*ck there would be a media uproar. f*ck everyone and their bias. Thats why she wins.

    "I want to be a role model for young [women] with high hopes of pageantry" (Shaunna Moakler). HA, what a joke! Miss Moakler was actually playmate of the month 2001 and she talks about being a role model? Somehow porn queen and role model don't quite fit!!

    Considering there's some sort of scandal revolving around the Miss USA competition every year why don't they just make one round mandatory "topless gay bashing"?

    Shame on Donald Trump to keep Carrie Prejean as Miss USA just because he thought she is beautiful and has a sexy body. He ignored the fact that Carrie had violated the contract that he generated!!! Shanna did the right thing to resign. She doesn't have to go along with a boss who doesn't enforce his own rules!!!!

    Shanna's only a former Miss USA, she can't be fired. And no one's saying who's allowed to say anything FFS. Persecution complex much, gay-haters?

    haha I'm so sure Shanna is so high and mighty right? being she posed in playboy. Go away we won't miss you. And if you can advocate for Gay Marriage, Carrie has every right to do the same for her beliefs. It's a one sided coin for Shanna, obviously she doesn't stand in the middle like they say she is supposed to. If you ask me they should have fired Shanna.

    So it's okay for Moakler to speak out publicly on one side of an issue, but not for Prejean to speak out on the other (the side that happens to be supported by more of her "constituency")? Don't let the door hit you...
