Shanna Moakler -- I Can't Stomach That No Mo

5/13/2009 3:13 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Shanna MoaklerOh the irony. Shanna Moakler just resigned as pageant director for the Miss California USA pageant, after Donald Trump told the world how Shanna and crew have mended fences with "biblically correct" Miss California USA Carrie Prejean. Just another one of those pesky lies.

Here's the statement Shanna released to Us Magazine:

"Since the press conference yesterday, I had a chance to think about what has taken place, and I feel that at this time it is in my best interest to resign from the Miss California USA organization.

I cannot with a clear conscious move forward supporting and promoting the Miss Universe Organization when I no longer believe in it, or the contracts I signed committing myself as a youth. I want to be a role model for young women with high hopes of pageantry, but now feel it more important to be a role model for my children. I am sorry and hope I have not let any young supporters down but wish them the best of luck in fulfilling their dreams.
"
