Shanna Moakler: “Carrie On Without Me”


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.

    • I’m not about to start praising homophobes for saying they don’t approve of gay rights, just like I wouldn’t approve with a racist person “standing up for what they believe in” by using a bunch of racial slurs and believing that other races aren’t as good as their own. Oh, how great! He said the n-word a lot. God bless him– standing up for what he believes in.

      You don’t have to automatically praise someone every time they have an opinion, especially when it’s one that you vehemently disagree with.

      • I don’t think anyone expected that she be praised, but geez, can’t she have her own opinion? I guess not. At least not if it’s outside of the group think. And Shanna Moakler acting self-righteous? Please. Isn’t she the mother that is frequently caught by TMZ stumbling out of some bar in the wee hours while her children are who knows where?

      • really? people are praising her opinion all over the country. I’m not going to respect someone who doesn’t respect gay rights.

        OMG why are people getting so upset? Because we see this as an ENORMOUS civil rights issue. It’s disgusting to us that gay people aren’t treated the same as straight people, just like it’s disgusting that we used to segregate black people from white people. It’s just gross. Being a bigot is gross.

        And really? She just stepped down. She didn’t make an huge issue out of it, or even say why exactly she was stepping down.

        And you better believe I respect her if she was stepping down FOR gay rights. BRAVO.

      • Since when did a woman’s life have stop when she became a mother? I can’t stand that pious claptrap.
        I guess all mother’s should stay at home 24/7 and bake cupcakes?

    • She wasn’t going to lose her crown for that.
      She was going to lose her crown, because she lied repeatedly.

      So, no, she’s a fraud.
      Big surprise.

      • I know. The crown wasn’t in danger because of her opinion. It was in danger because her boob pictures, and her continuous lying about it.

        It will be my favorite day if a sex tape of her is ever leaked. suck it miss california

  • Her face is seriously annoying me… Her ‘smile’ looks more like a grimace (which I’m sure she’s actually doing).

  • oh thank god. I have always vaguely liked Shanna Moakler for no reason. This makes me feel better. Go on girl.

    Good statement too. She didn’t even make it clear if it was because she was pro-gay rights or because she thought it was messed up about the nude pictures and the decision to let Prejean keep her crown.

    That’s how public speakers are supposed to talk. A bunch of blah blah about respect and so vague that no one can actually get directly mad at the statement.

  • HAHA from Dlisted : “You know the world is a strange place when Shanna Moakler sounds like the voice of reason.”

  • Yes, move on with a clear conscious. I hope she doesn’t feel too self-conscience out everything.

  • Yes, move on with a clear conscious. I hope she doesn’t feel too self-conscience ABOUT everything.

  • Wow…interesting statement from someone who built her career by posing nude. What an absolute crock of shite. I cringe to see the women of tomorrow if SHE is a role model.

  • Can people please just go back to not caring about anything about beauty pageants? I don’t see why anything about this Miss California is newsworthy. I get it. She doesn’t want gays to marry. It’s MISS CALIFORNIA, WHO GIVES A FUCK.

  • Go Shanna. She saw that she could no longer represent an organization that allows LYING. I think we misunderstand why Miss California could have lost her crown. It had nothing to do with her stance on gay marriage. It was the contract she continually broke with her MULTIPLE nude photo sessions. But I guess her God hates gay marriage more than it hates lying, pre-marital sex and nudie photoes.

  • What a courageous and brave thing of her to do. Her likeability factor just went up a little

  • This whole miss California thing is pretty fucked up. I wish I could not show up to countless things I am ‘contractually’ obligated to do and send a representative in my place (like my little sister) and not get fired.

    Honestly, I don’t really care that this woman is actively campaigning against my happiness with NOM, I just want her to go away.

  • GOOD GRIEF. The girl stated HER opinion. The gay mafia and everyone else that is bashing Miss California because of HER opinion need to BACK THE F OFF. Why don’t you bash Obozo, Hillary Clinton, the MAJORITY of Californians, or any of the other dimocrats for having THE SAME OPINION?

    I’m glad Shana resigned. She is a typical liberal hypocrite. I wouldn’t want Miss “I spread my legs in Playboy and had a fight with Paris Hilton in a bar” being a role model for anyone.

    I happen to be a conservative who is FOR legalizing gay marriage but this is NOT HELPING THEIR CAUSE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! If anything, it’s having the exact opposite effect.

    • do you know how politics works? of course you can’t win a campaign, especially one as big as the presidency, saying that you approve of gay marriage. that would scare the shit out of voters, and cost you the election. pleeeease.

  • you give her credit for standing up for what she believes- but you hate carrie for the same reason? who’s the two face now?? hmmmmmmm

    • Hey brainiac….. I didn’t comment on Shana stating an opinion. I commented on her actions and the hypocrisy of her wanting to be a role model for girls.

      We are all covered by the 1st amendment so as vile as the gay mafia has been, I would stand behind them saying whatever they want.

      It just makes me so mad that a group of individuals seek tolerance for their beliefs but when Miss California is asked a loaded question and gives her opinion, she is trashed.

      Where is the trashing of Obozo? HE HAS THE SAME OPINION!!!!!!!! His exact quote:

      “I’m a Christian. And so, although I try not to have my religious beliefs dominate or determine my political views on this issue, I do believe that tradition, and my religious beliefs say that marriage is something sanctified between a man and a woman.”



      • That’s not the point sweetie. Obozo HAS THE SAME VIEW ON THE PRINCIPAL OF GAY MARRIAGE. Bash him for a while or BACK THE F OFF of Miss California.

    • Don’t you think its a little strange to be making such narrowly construed, judgmental, and hateful generalizations about an entire group of people? Especially when this whole thing erupted over what people term to be a narrow minded judgmental opinion??? Why are you allowed to be completely closed minded and downright hateful about one group of people, and then pretend that you are actually a tolerant person because you are “down with the gays?” Is it just because it is more socially forward to be gay than to be a Christian?

    i guess that means pose for playboy the moral compass magazine for all teenage girls.
    so according to her some nipple showing is imoral but totally nude in a magazine is what all young women should aspire to be.

  • Unlike most people here who think she stepped down because of the opinions of the Miss California, I think she stepped down because she thought that Miss C should have had her crown stripped from her, others have for less.
    It makes you think how she keeps it and others lose it.
    When Trump is THE deciding factor, you have to wonder why some women keep it and others lose it.
    Hint, doing a favor for Trump figures into it…

  • Thank you, Shanna for taking a step for every one so that all of us can achieve equality. Also, I want to thank you Beet. I am glad I have a girlfriend on my side.

    • Oh please. Shanna stepped down for self serving reasons…. PERIOD! She likes the publicity because her career is in the tank. Plus, she is on the left coast where you MUST be for gay marriage if you’re in the entertainment business or you would be eaten up by the Hollyweird machine.

  • So was it Shanna, or her ill-educated publicist who released a statement that incorrectly substituted “conscience” with “conscious” – no really, I’d like to know. The clear misuse of a word in her sanctimonious press statement is almost as embarrassing as her “role model for my children” put-on.

  • Anonymous at 11:54: Soooo…you’re saying you want a President who LIES about his moral positions while campaigning? Smart.


    and after 3 maragritas that was really hard to type

    but really, more power to them :)

    Gay is OK… seriously

  • I agree that Carrie Prejean should be able to express her own personal opinion when asked a question about it. I love how this site has a “supposed” sister site about being feminist – but let’s suppress this girl’s right to state her view. That is sooooo empowering to me as a woman!

    • Good point Stephanie.
      Perhaps this should be their new motto:
      “We support the women of our country…er, that is providing you only agree with our every view point – if not we’ll BEET you down like a dog”.
