Claudia Jordan to Miss Cali:

Work That Gay Room

4/20/2009 7:13 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Miss USA judge Claudia Jordan tells us Miss California Carrie Prejean didn't play to her audience when she said "Marriage should only be between a man and a woman."



Claudia says, "She should have known her audience better. There's only like five straight guys in the audience at the pageant." You gotta love Claudia!

Launch photosThe former Briefcase #1 model on "Deal or No Deal" says, "I don't agree with what she said, but I don't think she's evil."

And we saved the best for last: "I've been in pageants, and I've been on TMZ, so I know what it's like when you screw up what you meant to say." First of all, love the honesty, Claudia. Second of all, exactly what part did Carrie misspeak?

The part where she said 'gay marriage or um...opposite marriage' It made her sound dumb. That is where she messed up.

She picked up and stop tossing random words around by the time she got to the anti-gay marriage part, but before that she sounded like that one pageant girl who was talking about people who don't have maps.

Miss California holds the same position on this issue that President Obama does. That must make Barack Obama a dumb bitch in Perez Hilton's eyes. But Perez is more worried about Miss USA than the President of the United States. That must make Perez a dumb bitch in the eyes of everybody who has a brain.

Who cares? She states what she feels and didn't let anybody or anything change her mind. Good for her. You aren't wrong just because you don't support gay marriage. Just because Perez Hilton is mad doesn't make it right. Do some research on him..he' about the most unethical, immoral "man" you can find. Oh...boo hoo...Good for you girl!

This is America. The place where you can hold the flag and burn it. Why is it so wrong to hold an opinion about anything anymore? Ever? Most of the gay guys I know are high on meth all the time...but I guess that is cool too. Banging in parks and such. Sleeping with whomever and whenever because the urge strikes. Not judging. But if you don't want the criticism don't criticise someone else for having an opinion. BTW Perez Hilton, sux.

I Love Carrie. She has some Big @ss Balls. That is courage in the face of adversity, she knew she would lose and she answered with her truth. She might get slammed by the media but I believe this woman is going to shoot to stardom. Carrie, you deserve nothing but the best and your gonna get it honey. Congrats!

When did it become a "bad" thing for someone to speak their opinions? This woman held true to her values and beliefs and spoke her HONEST opinion to the question that was asked. GOOD FOR HER for NOT giving the "PC" answer.

The painful irony here is that her basic right to not agree with gay marriage is the exact reason why there's even a discussion and on-going legal procedures on the subject in the first place.

I feel sorry for anyone who's unable to grasp that concept regardless of where you stand on the issue...

she has the right to believe what she believes.

Marriage is based on a very sound religious concept... a concept that God created man and woman... and thus a godly union is between a man and woman.

If a woman wants to marry a woman or a man a man, they can do a civil union... which has no religious conotations.

It is well within her right to believe that... whether you agree with it or not.

If you don't agree with her point of view... how do you like it when people tell you YOU are not allowed to think that way?

I agree in part with you, LittleBitty- I cannot stand Perez. His over the top flaming ( and oft times childish) opinions only tend to make people back off from caring about gay issues. His 'self appointed' reign as 'spokesperson' for the gay cause does more harm than help. (and, he seriously has sh*t taste in musical talent and newsworthy issues!)

If the gay judge doesn't want an honest answer, don't ask the question. Miss California stood on principles and the judge, both judges ....can't say anything nice about the judges.
