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.

11. This is really getting old and tired. Leave this girl alone. Everyone is entitled to their own opinions. Has TMZ gone to "anything for a buck," If so, I am done reading and watching.

So it's morally ok for her to pose semi nude as a minor when she 'thinks' it will get her somewhere ?? ..and it's OK for her to lie about those pictures to the pagent heads ... but somehow she is to be looked up to for standing up for her beliefs on gay marraige?? Typical do as I say not as I do bigot in training.

When did she or anyone say it was morally ok for her to pose semi nude? You have never done anything in your life that when you look back you realize it was probably not the most moral thing? Like I said earlier in another post, I am you sure you are against murder and probably see lying as an immoral act. So just because you have told a lie in your life, does that mean you now think that lying is moral? probably not. And further, if you are against murder but have done the immoral act of lying previously, does that make you a hypocrite? I think most would agree that isn't the case. So, why then when a Christian says they don't think abortion is right, and then make a mistake and possibly sin in another instance is she a hypocrite?

Second, I don't think most Christians are looking up to her or holding her as a role model. They are simply defending her against mean spirited people out there who are bent on ruining her life because she has a differing opinion on an issue as they do.

63. Leave her alone!? She is putting herself out in front if a Christian group that is demanding the rest of us be moral and free of vice... So I say screw her... She is a lying hypocrite. And that is proven.

let me see if i have correct.....her personal views and opinions are what she was raised up by her parents....just because the liberals want to change the way it has been for 100's of years. if anyone violates their mission the attacks keep coming and coming......just look at what has happened to Mel Gibson, Newt Gingrinch, Rush Limbaugh, Ann Coulter, Bill O'reilly, the list just goes on and on....if its not gay marriage, its the next party line attack.....but when a liberal voices there opinion know one says anything because of the attacks that will follow.....either by print media, nbc, msnbc, the blogs, huffington-post or from move-on.org.......the attacks just keep coming.......hows that for freedom of speech , if only the speech is what you actually want to hear or meets or agenda....thanks Perez Hilton for the only answer that could have be answered to satisfy your peronal agenda.......how shallow can one person go.......

But she posed naked as a minor because she's a Christian who is obviously superior to the rest of us.

I wonder how TMZ and their source are somehow able to NOT get arrested for kiddy porn here. This is the only crime where it is actually a crime to be a witness, you know.

It's amazing how low some members of the gay community will stoop and character assassinate someone they do not care for.

Yet another case of the hypocracy of the conservative right-wing. Do as we say, not as we do is their neverending motto. Such as drugs are bad and marriage is sacred - kind of funny when it comes from Rush Limbaugh who abuses drugs and is on his 3rd marriage. And now this. Had she merely made her statement and had idiot Perez Hilton not made an issue of it, it would have been simply good for her for speaking how she truly felt - because she did say that everyone has a right to their own opinions. However once Perez moron turned it into an issue the right-wing jumped on it as did she to cash in. And now she's whining about semi-nude pics taken of her when she was only 17? Um, that was only a few years ago considering she's only 22 now. Really? I grew up a conservative (albeit not psycho right-wing) Christian in a Baptist church and I can guarantee in no way shape or form were nude or semi-nude pictures ever and acceptable thing! I even turned down roles in independent films because of my personal convictions. It seems to me that Carrie is all about religion and convictions when it gets her fame and money.

It's almost becoming sad and pathetic to watch the conservatives and GOP fall apart. Almost. It's still far more entertaining and satisfying to watch but it's bordering on sad and pathetic. :)

Wow, isn't that convenient, she was only 17. Typical holier-than-thou response.

Well, well, well, isn't this interesting, but not surprising to me. Did you supporters really think that the dirt was not going to be dug up on your lil poster girl? C'mon now, honestly? By all means, she has the right to her opinion, no matter who agrees or doesn't agree with her, the hell with them. I personally don't agree with her and that's fine. My distaste with her comes in the form of when I found out the pagent people paid for her breast implants (ok, I'm sure she's not the first, but she is the first I know about -- I stopped watching pagents years ago because I find them a horrible role model for girls, teens, and women in general), yet another fine example of pagents glorifying that women must be "perfect" and FAKE (mmhmm, love those morals) -- should I go on about the fake tans, the fake hair, teeth, coaches, most expensive this, that and the other? Ok, I've spewed about my dislike for pagents plenty in the past week and how demoralizing I think they are for children on up. So first the implants, second, the lie she told to the pagent people regarding her signing the statement saying she has never posed for pictures -- nude or semi-nude. Ermm, hello brainyack, lingere or not, that pose is considered semi-nude, therefore, I believe the people reviewing the picture and deciding your fate will be disqualifying you and your reign. You should NOT have lied!!!!! What excuse are you going to give out for that? Well, frankly I don't really think there can be a viable excuse from you for that, a lie is a lie in this instance. Oh but, your christian faith shall forgive your sin. On a brighter note, there's always Vanessa Williams and her success to look upon, after all she too was stripped of her crown....

By the way, word has it, via Donald Trumps appearance on The View today 5/5, he said that Carrie would not have won the crown, had Perez asked his question about gay marriage or not, her scores just did not add up to enough points for her to win. True? Not true? Hey, I'm just passin on what he said.....something TMZ should have shared with us!!!!

If anything this is just funny. I don't agree with Hilton making such a huge deal out her having an opinion, I mean she isn't the only right wing on the face of the earth that thinks gays should be banned from the alter. I mean who cares? They asked her a question...she answered it. Get over it already. Now this recent "scandal" is just too bad for her. She did come across as a "goodie two shoes", now she is caught with her porno pants down (so to speak.) Just laugh!

didn't the pageant pay for her implants recently? she should have to prove her age in the pictures & further vanessa williams was decrowned for her photos. this chick needs to either step down or be asked to by the pageant officials.. enough of her hypocrisy already.

The gay rights' lobby is a bunch of bullies!! Of course they are going to keep attacking anyone whom they can't bully into submission! I like seeing Miss California doing her best to stand up to them,

CRAZY*E    

I FOR ONE APPLAUD THIS GIRL. NOT VERY MANY PEOPLE WOULD STAND BEFORE A GAY JUDGE AND SAY HER TRUE THOUGHTS ON SUCH A TOUCHY SUBJECT. (PEREZ,IF YOU CANT TAKE THE HEAT STAY OUT OF THE KITCHEN. IN OTHER WORDS MABY YOU SHOULDNT BE A JUDGE IF YOU CANT TAKE PEOPLES OPINIONS!) AND AS FOR THE PICTURES.. EVERY ANGEL HAS A PAST AND EVERY DEVIL HAS A FUTURE.

I wonder if it was her good Christian mother or her good Christian father who signed the photographer's consent forms, and which one of them was present to chaperone this semi-nude photo shoot.

Just because Miss California isn't perfect doesn't mean she can't have freedom of speech and say that homosexual marriage is wrong! Most people in California do NOT support gay marriage.
