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."

This has nothing to do with how she answered the question and everything to do with her hypocrisy and lying. She says her answer was based on her faith. Yet, a big part of that faith is not lying, which it seems she is quite good at. First, she doesn't disclose what she is supposed to in order to even be in the pageant. When that lie surfaces, she then talks as if it's some smear campaign. Hello! Anybody who thrusts themselves in the public eye is bound to have things come up like this, no matter what they said. So, she's basically not owning up to lying and taking responsiblity for violating her contract. Then, to top it off, she continues to lie to them and get caught. Apparently this young woman is so busy thinking about what others are doing in their bedrooms and promoting discrimination that she isn''t taking a good, hard look at herself. She should lose her crown, not because of her stance, but because of her hypocrisy and being a habitual liar.

Wow! Apparently, her God who does not have approve of gay marriage, is ok with dishonesty and partial nudity? Before she decides to get up on a soapbox and preach about "right and wrong", she should re-examine her own faults! And how stupid to sign a contract saying she has never posed nude or semi-nude knowing that these photos are out there! Most people already think pageant girls are brainless bimbos and she is not doing anything to change their opinions with her actions!

It's not about gay marriage anymore. The subject now is she is a LIAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!. If you lie on an application you get FIRED!!!! That's it. These new stories have nothing to do with gay marriage. It's the pictures and her FAke TITS!!!!!!! Good christian girl. So she is the spokeswomen you want standing up for your morals. HYPOCRITES!!!!!!

Who CARES about some stupid, useless pagaent? I mean, c'mon, other than disgusting, perverted queers, who watches that crap anyway? And who cares if Carrie had some help filling out her bikini top? She looked damn GOOD and that's all that matters. Now, where's them pictures? Woo Hoo!!!

weren't these pics taken when she was under 18? doesn't that make rags like this guilty of distributing child porn?

i mean really. if they can charge a high school kid for his girl sending him a topless photo, then they sure as hell should be charging the people running these gossip mills.

oh and for those who like to show their hate concerning this young lady. not ONE of you has the guts to do what she did. i dont care what you believe, or refuse to believe, this chick is TOP NOTCH. for all the hateful heterophobic comments on here, bitching about this young woman is as close as you'll ever get to something good. so go sit and spin.

Imagine how many teenage boys are rubbing one out to this girl's pictures. Doesn't that violate the Bible too? Yet here she is enticing impressionable boys to spill their seeds. For shame Carrie Prejean!

get over it people. really... these pictures aren't any different than the swimsuit portion or a Victoria's Secret catalog. so I don't really get what the big deal is. a majority of teenagers probably have more revealing pictures of themselves than that on their camera phones as we speak!

Jennifer, so sad to hear such intolerance and lack of compassion in one so young.....have you read the latest People magazine about the two young boys who committed suicide because they were being taunted by lovely little schoolmates just like you? And they weren't even gay -- just accused of it by a bunch of mean-spirited little sh*ts like yourself.

El Gato, there is no God as you describe. And the Bible is a book of stories for learning things like love, peace, and compassion. So take your beleifs and eat them.

Well it would seem her views on sexuality and traditional lifestyles was the reason she lost. So it would mean based on her sexual orientation and lifestyle and her beliefs she was denied the crown. That would be considered sexual discrimination anywhere else in the free world. Now all these pics of her start popping up, of course she's underage in them and that constitutes trafficking in child porn, that is if the pictures are even real, but you see no federal agents busting down the door of TMZ wanting to know the location and the ID of the sender. A teenager can be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law for having a pic of his girlfriends tits on his phone and labeled a sex offender the rest of his life, but somehow this site and its administrators are immune to the law? That leads me to believe the pics are probably non existent or most probably doctored. But isn't it funny how all of a sudden someone comes out like she did and voiced her honest opinion against what gays want to hear and now she is totally under attack, her character is being smeared, seems to me the simple fact is if you're in the public eye you'd better be a good dog and pony act and jump when you're told to jump, and literally discard your own sense of self and follow the leader.

I would be offended if the woman who represents my country as Miss USA would say anything other than what Carrie said. Miss USA is the epitomy of what is great about American women. She is the standard. I want her to be perfect, or damn close to it. I don't want her to go around spouting her mouth off about how we all ought to be accepting of gay marriage.

The girl spoke her mind, and she thinks like most Americans do. It's disgraceful what they are doing to her. And where is Donald Trump in all of this? He ought to be in the forefront defending her. You are really letting me down Mr. Trump.

You are awesome Carrie. I, and all other Californians I know are proud of you Sweetheart. I'm proud that you're representing my state. Don't ever change a thing. You should have won the overall crown. You deserve it.

TMZ openly mocks Christians and their beliefs. They do not understand the power of the Lord's forgiveness of sin.

Why would anyone expect them to do anything but try to destroy someone who dares to demonstrate their faith? Would you expect any different story from such a bigotted organization?

It never ceases to amaze Canadians and the rest of the world how hypocritical Americans are. TMZ has the audacity to opine on morality and the sheltered American public line up to follow.
