Carrie Prejean --

I Was Only 17!

5/5/2009 6:17 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Carrie PrejeanSo someone sent us pictures two days ago of Carrie Prejean -- showing the Miss California/Miss USA runner-up modeling topless, partially covering her breasts with her hands and wearing panties. So, we ask, What would Jesus think?

We contacted Carrie's rep, who gave us this statement yesterday: "This was a photo that was taken several years ago, when Carrie first started modeling. In her naivete, an agent convinced her to pose for this photo to submit to a lingerie company, claiming they could make her the next Victoria's Secret model. She has since learned what a lie that was, and what a mistake it was to have the photo taken."

A short time later, we got a second statement: "Is there any allowance for the fact that she was a minor when the photo was taken, that would allow you not to post? She was only 17."

We had our doubts ... especially when comparing the photos to photos of Carrie at the Miss California Teen USA pageant in 2004, a few months before her 18th birthday. But we just got a handwritten statement from Carrie herself, and she's towing the line: "The photo in question was taken when I was a minor, several months before the 2005 pageant. The photo was not meant for disclosure to the general public."

Carrie PrejeanA honcho at Miss California USA told us Carrie may have violated her contract, because she represented several times in writing that she never posed nude or partially nude for any photo. We're here to tell you ... that's not true.

We haven't posted the pics and won't unless we know she was over 18.

This picture stuff is typical liberal crap. What would happen to the economy in this country if the Conservatives finally get fed up with the constant assault on them and decide to start boycotting the liberal companies like TMZ and the other liberal media outlets in retaliation for the constant smear of any conservative? Ask your local newspaper how being so one sided and pro liberal is working out for them if they are still in business. Leave the girl alone.

We call her a hypocrite because, like many
bible-thumpers, she picks and chooses which of the rules should apply
and which shouldn't as is convenient to her life. What about the body
being a temple? How is it OK that she carved up hers so she could
have big titties? What about only sharing your nakedness with your
betrothed? My biggest problem, however, isn't with her. She's just
another sheep blindly following and believing what her mommy and
daddy told her. The issue I have is the right-leaning morons that
jumped on her bandwagon and made her their covergirl without having a
clue as to what kind of person she really is. Kind of like when the
abstinence brigade jumped on Palin's wagon before they found out she
couldn't even convince her own daughter to use BIRTH CONTROL. So,
now, we have one more young girl raising another baby, probably on
her way to public assitance. Yeah, that's the ticket!

Not buying it. I saw the picture (before learning of the POSSIBLE age thing), Is it customary for an "agent" to get a candidate to take a picture in a bathroom? You can see the lotion and other bathroom items in the background.

Either way, she is only playing the Christian card because it's the only hypocratical group that will take her in.

Now this is all because she didn't go along kicking and screaming that gay marriage is good. She not a disgrace, she a woman that answered a question and the gay facist will attack anyone who don't agree with them. Majority of the country is against gay marriage. No one attacked the blacks when they voted 70% against gay marriage in California, why? Dont forget the Asian voted 65% against gay marriage also.

I am so thrilled she is going down the drain. Good bye, homophobic.

In today's instant exposure environment.........EVERY picture should be considered "for the general public" whether intended or not! HELLO!

Plus...from what I've heard, she was pretty much flat as a board before the new rack paid for by the CA Pageant System...

The photo I've seen does not show any nudity. She is wearing panties and covering her right breast. The photo is taken from the side.

However, I wonder if she was the "Next Victoria's Secret Model", Then that would make taking this photo Okay?

Her 15 minutes ended abruptly.

There's probably photos of her completely naked in bathtubs and on public beaches from her toddler days floating around out there too! You know she didn't disclose those either!

Way to continue the parade of intolerance, TMZ.
