Bimbette fired, whines loudly, plays victim.
The airhead Bimbette, Carrie Prejean, who had won the Miss California crown in the Miss USA contest, has been deposed. Alas, sadly, her head remains firmly attached which means she is once again basking in the limelight, whining furiously and playing the perpetual victim.
Pageant owner Donald Trump had previously stood by the Bimbette (which is a Bimbo without the intellect) but this time he backed removing her from her position. According to the pageant Prejean was refusing to fulfill contractual obligations such as showing up for promotional events.
Prejean, as you will remember, was the woman who gave a jumbled, confusing answer on gay marriage at the national Miss USA contest. Because the other Bimbette, Perez Hilton, a judge at the event, bitched about her she got lots of attention. She also claimed that she was being persecuted because she came in second place. She claimed that she was winning the contest until she gave her "Christian" answer as to why God wants the state to strip gays of the same rights as straights. Officials at the contest says she was trailing before the question and that her claim that she lost only because of the answer was false—she was already losing before her inarticulate and befuddled answer.
Prejean then told several porkies to the public. She claimed, for instance, that her sister is a "gay rights activist." The sister, who says she attended one meeting on the topic, was rather surprised to discover this and said it wasn't true.
Prejean had lied to pageant officials saying that there were no nude photos of her prior to becoming Miss California. Then such a photo turned up. Prejean claimed it was the only such photo, then another turned up. Prejean then whined that the photos were part of a plot to discredit her because she is a fundamentalist Christian. That she was hypocritical and lying to pageant officials didn't seem to bother her at all. She was the victim and that was her story and she was sticking to it.
Now Prejean is once again making absurd claims. According to her she was fired because the Miss California contest wanted to "pimp her out" to Playboy. Officials deny that. And, given that they frown on such photos being associated with their contest, their denial rings more truthful than the continuing claims by Prejean. The pageant said: "This was a decision based solely on contract violations including Ms. Prejean's unwillingness to make appearances on behalf of the Miss California USA organization." Trump said he saved Prejean's position previously but told her "she needed to get back to work and honor her contract with the Miss California USA Organization and I gave her the opportunity to do so. Unfortunately it just doesn't look like it is going to happen..." Trump said he gave the local conference organizer his blessing to fire Prejean.
Conference organizers said that Prejean had forbidden them to reject offers that are made to her and told them they must inform her of every such offer. When Playboy offer $140,000 for a photo shoot they told her of the offer and nothing more. At no point did they tell her she had to take the offer. In fact, they wouldn't have liked it if she did. But Prejean is always the victim of persecution, she is the eternal victim for Jesus. And that means she has to invent persecutions that don't exist and exaggerate any facts in order to appear as victimized as she claims she is.
Prejean says because she doesn't want gays to have the same rights as others that she is being persecuted. "What's behind this I think is a political debate. They don't agree with the stance that I took. ...They don't like me. From day one they wanted me out and they got what they wanted." TMZ reports that Trump told their reporter that Prejean treated the pageant "like shit." Prejean says she doesn't believe it because she is such a sweet thing, showing respect for everyone—unless they are part of the gay plot to get her.
Alas records of her emails show that she wasn't the sweet Christian she pretends to be and that she was unpleasant, demanding, and whinny with pageant officials. Pageant official Keith Lewis emailed her:
Although I do not agree with your directive nor is this letter an indication of our intent to waive our contract rights, we do not want to escalate the situation with you. In good faith, we will simply ask that you provide us all of the details so that we can block it in on our master calendar. We would also want to get the contact information should something come up - like you become missing after the event or you are in an accident before the event and need us to reach out for you. It is for your safety and our responsibility.
Prejean emailed back:
You do not cooperate with me, and you pick and chose (sic) the the (sic) things YOU want me to do. That is not happening anymore. Stop speaking for me. I have MY own voice. What are u gonna do fire me for volunteering for the special olympics hahaha ur crazy No I am doing this appearance. You do not need details. Its for the SPECIAL OLYMPICS!!! You just need to know I will be doing it alrightNote that the pageant was polite to her and merely asked for contact details for her appearance. She baited them to fire her and said she wouldn't tell them anything. Ignoring her rudeness Lewis wrote back:
You will not facilitate this appearance
As we have discussed, there is proper protocol and we have not waived our rights in any way to your contract. I am happy to try and facilitate the request. Please forward over the information along with the proper contact and we will try and confirm the appearance right away.
Prejean then orders Lewis to forward all requests to her. She tells him that it isn't right that the pageant decide where she will appear and what she will do. She tells him: "I expect you to be forwarding me ALL email requests and interview requests to me (sic). I know how you are and its not right if you are selecting things for me." So, she did order them to pass on all requests to her and let her decide for herself, regardless of her contract. And it appears she was very uncooperative with the pageant yet she tells the media: "I mean, I've been cooperating with them. I don't see why this is happening." Yep, playing the victim again, confused by the mean pageant officials who are picking on her because of her support for "opposite marriage."
Prejean says everyone hated her, except Donald Trump. Trump says that Prejean refused to show up for appearances that were scheduled for her. He also said: "To me she was the sweetest thing. Everyone else—she treated liked shit." Hmm, does the term manipulative come to mind?
Prejean will try to project herself as the victim of the Learned Elders of Gayon. She will have a limited "fame" factor in fundamentalist churches who will present her to their flock as a victim and as a "real celebrity who loves Jesus." Everyone else will mercifully get to forget she existed. So, Carrie, don't let the door hit the fake boobs on your way out. Bye, bye.
Photo: Am I the only one, or does this photo make her look like a drag queen?
