Miss California -- Pants on Fire!

5/6/2009 1:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Miss California Carrie Prejean has lied to the pageant that feeds her.

TMZ has obtained an email Carrie sent to Keith Lewis, Co-Executive Director of Miss California USA. The email, sent yesterday, refers to the topless photo of her circulating on the Internet. The email reads: "This was when I was 17 years old. I was a minor. It was when I was first getting into the modeling world, being naive, and young. I shouldnt (sic) have taken the photo of me in my underwear. There are no other photos of me. This was the only one I took."

Carrie is not telling the truth. Last Sunday, someone sent TMZ 4 -- FOUR -- photos of Carrie without her top and in her panties. We did not publish the pics after her rep contacted us and said she was 17 when the pics were taken.

We told Keith Lewis about the 4 photos. His reaction: "I'm absolutely stunned. This completely changes things for us. Yesterday we thought she had explained things accurately. We need to revisit this issue with her."

Oh ya!!!! I forgot to add, I am pro choice and equality, and yes I am a Christain. But this is still America isn't it??? I thought this was still a FREE Country!!! I had NO Problem with her or any of the other contestants speaking on how they believe or feel. Unless it was done in poor taste or in a cruel manner. And it wasn't. But my problem with her is that she is a lying HYPOCTRIT!!!!! AND still professing to be a Christain at the same time. If it had just been the answer to the controversial question to begin with, ok. Except how the spot light was taken away from the WINNER. That WAS and IS JUST WRONG!!!!!!!!!!!!!! On Soooooooooooooooooo Many Levels!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And the FACT that after such an answer to the judges, Ooooooops!!! The PHOTOS APPEARED!!!! Which clearly contradicted her answer and other comments, in the first place. That's why it's been so wrong. Not to mention she violated the pagent contract in the first place. And I'm sorry, but, since when do Beauty Pagents start paying for Boob josb and other cosmetic procedures?????????? Huh???!!!! Even Vanessa Williams lost her title to enhancements and photos!!!!! Remember???!!!! What the world is happening to us??? All the crap that has been going on with pagent winners the past 2 or 3 yrs. and stuff?? It is becoming a disgrace.

I watch this for the last 7 or 8 days and it's about facist gays who think there victims, but are acting like nazi's who hates others opinions. Being gay is okay, if that your choice, but the majority of people, 70% black in California voted NO for gay marriage. Go to a black church or black neighborhood and protest there. Why not? Asian were 65% and Hispanics were 60 against gay marriage. Perez Hilton has set the gay movement back 20 years and people are tired of being bullied into something they don't believe in.

To "The World is Going to Hell" Person. I get you!! I didn't mean TMZ could do anything. But that does still bring up another issue. That the FACT is, IF and I mean a BIG IF; She Truly was a Minor when the photos were taken, Now as an Adult, she still would be, and or anyone else who did so would slitt ge GUILTY of distibution of Kiddie Porn. And then there would still be the issue if the Photog was a willing participant or if she lied to them too. And Harvey (is Great!), is a Lawyer anyway. He knows that even the hint of it being Kiddie Porn, would be illegal to show it!!!! P.S. TMZ, I LOVE your show!!!!!! It's about time someone started showing the TRUTH about these Celebs and other High Profile people!!!! I am SICK to DEATH of all the B.S. and Illegal things these people get away with, when if we did any of that stuff, we'de have a ONE-WAY Ticket to Jail!!!!!! I worked in the Industry for along time and know alot of these people. I am Very familiar with the "OPEN SECRETS"......... Anyway, Great job Harvey and MOST of your team. The Max dude with the long blond hair. Is that his name? Everytime he opens his mouth he sounds more ignorant than the time before. He is dumber that a boz of rocks, and makes TMZ look bad. What the Hell does he do that's constructive anyway??????? And then there is that other cute blond dude with the short hair. Has he actually showed anything that isn't a Boob or A$$ shot???? You are so much better that that Harvey!!!!!!!!!! I Love you and the judge on People's Court Too!!

I would like to have intercourse with her while on her hands and knees reading me a bible story...maybe anal intercourse, come to think of it. And maybe reach arounc and tug those nips. Other than that I think she is a horrible person.

#207 Lenn K. - Your response was well-written. I was just thinking the same thing. Nowhere in our Constitution does it say that I have to agree with gays. And I'm tired of them thinking they have the right to bully other people. I haven't done a thing to them.

Her answer is the same as the "Chosen One" Obama offered up during the debates. Why are they not going after hime when he clearly stated he was against gay marriage?

She needs to spend some time in her church, speaking to her god, who will hopefully judge her as harshly as she has judged others. Actually, thats probably just a wast of time... once a skank, always a skank. Oh it feels good being judgmental.

This site is a piece of sh*t. So, the only answer she was permitted to give is the politically correct, insincere answer. You clowns are nothing but a bunch of thought police. Get off her back and move on to another subject you vultures.

My favorite quote out of this so far is from Shanna Moakler: "Carrie is going to have to stop doing the press circuit about how great it is she used the First Amendment and her First Right, and really sit down with these people that she’s hurt," Um, #1 the First Amendment is pretty damned important, and #2, if they didn't want people who want gay marriage to be legal to possibly get their feelings hurt, why was it even an option as a question in the pageant? Maybe they should have changed it to, "Carrie, do you like pink or purple better?" or "Carrie, do you think butterflies are pretty?" And for the other Miss Ca director to tell all about the implants-tacky, dude. I mean, how do these two not realize that they are woefully unsuited for their jobs? I mean, they approved Perez Hilton as a judge, for goodness sake-are they TRYING to make people not take them seriously? They are just giving this chick more and more fame-no one even knows the winners name, lol!

It's amazing how we let a punk like Perez Hilton be a judge at the pageant and then let him ask a question he knew that would fan the flames. To Ms. Moakler, you are no better sister. MissCalifornia has more class in her little pinky that you will ever have.

Yes, this kind of marriage probably will become legal however, what is legal isn't always what is right. If she had answered the question the way Hilton wanted, would Carrie be dragged through the mud? No. Who hasn't made mistake in their past? Sounds like to me she has gotten forgiveness in her heart for them. I'm glad she stood up for what she believed in, there are alot more people behind her than not. I am one of them.

Gay is just soooo gross! And all my high school friends think so too! Society has been against it for 2000 years, so why is it okay just all of a sudden? GROSS!

Interracial facial    

Politics has no place in a beauty contest. And morality opinion belongs in a church and not in the media The velvet mob will never let this go. Already they're turning her into whipping girl with immoral accusations and revelations. More to come. Stay tuned.
