Just yesterday Shanna Moakler smiled and shook hands with Miss California Carrie Prejean at a press conference in which Donald Trump announced that Prejean would retain her crown. Maybe she was just being a professional but it would have been much more exciting if she had stormed out. Or started attacking Donald Trump’s Oompa Loompa skin with a loofah. Decorum sucks.
Anyway, Moakler’s affection toward Prejean, like every boob that comes out of California, was a fake display.
However, in a move that restores my faith, today Moakler resigned from her director post for the Miss California USA pageant. The statement released reads as follows:
Since the press conference yesterday, I had a chance to think about what has taken place, and I feel that at this time it is in my best interest to resign from the Miss California USA organization.
I cannot with a clear conscious move forward supporting and promoting the Miss Universe Organization when I no longer believe in it, or the contracts I signed committing myself as a youth. I want to be a role model for young women with high hopes of pageantry, but now feel it more important to be a role model for my children. I am sorry and hope I have not let any young supporters down but wish them the best of luck in fulfilling their dreams.
I give her credit for standing up for what she believes in. With this brave move she also has secured the everlasting love of the gays. She’s the new Liza. Or Cher. Or Beet.
