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.

Is it "towing the line" or "toeing the line?" I'd ask Nik Richie but he can't spell either. BAH-hhh!

What's the difference between her "topless" photo and the pageant photo of her in a bikini?

You're offended by the side of her breast that you can see?....But not by her cleavage in the bikini shot?

Also, she showed great character answering a question that should be asked if you are not allowed to answer it. She has been wronged. But she did right. And I disagree with her.

Just leave the girl alone. So what she said she did't agree with gay marriage. That's no different than you not agreeing with her own beliefs. Plus, if you guys think she is so horrible, then stop talking about her. You're giving her even more time in the spotlight. It's amazing how hypocritical EVERYONE in this country is whether liberal or conservative. And just because you're a Christian doesn't mean you don't make mistakes like everyone else. Any Christian who claims that they are perfect and have every answer aren't true Christians anyway and this girl never claimed to be perfect. She just doesn't agree with a particular lifestyle. LEAVE HER ALONE!

I think the Perez Judge has been a total FREAK!! getting all of this started for FREEDOM OF SPEECH!

The Beauty Pagent should never have a crazy judge like this in the first place. This pictures are nothing but someone showing their back!

Its too bad that if you don't agree with the far left on everything you are prosecuted. Isn't there anyone else the far left can hang by a tree than this girl? Give me a break.

You people really need to get a life. Most of you posting shes not Christian are probably the biggest liars to yourselves, and everyone you post to. I would be willing to assume that everyone of you that are bashing people for "not being christian" are not either unless you are a priest. Get a life of your own and also those who live in glass houses should not throw stones and do pass judgement on someone before being judged yourself.

Shouldn't whoever asked her to pose for them be prosecuted for child porn? I really despise this chick because no matter what happens, she wants to have it both ways.

She claims that she was 17 when the pictures were taken; that should be easy to prove or disprove. Produce the signed and dated photo release. I haven't seen the pictures but if they were sexual in nature was a 2257 filled out? If so porduce it. Do the pictures border on pornography? If so and she was underage are there any charges pending? Inquiring minds want to know.

A person does not have to be religious or homophobic to be against gay "marriage". It's structure and stability at stake. I personally think the polygamists and child/love advocates will have arguments to support eliminating all guidelines to what constitutes "marriage". Why are limits/guidelines to human behavior so despised in this current cultural climate? Juno was cool and gay marriage is hip. Next will be "tolerance" for the child molester. Why not? We can't make judgments any more about behaviors......
