Carrie Prejean: They Asked Me to do Playboy

6/10/2009 8:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Carrie PrejeanWe just got off the phone with deposed Miss California USA Carrie Prejean -- and she says the pageant was trying to whore her out to Playboy.

Prejean claims pageant honcho Keith Lewis actually asked her last month if she would take two gigs -- appearing on "I'm a Celebrity ... Get Me Out of Here!" and Playboy. Prejean says Lewis told her Playboy offered $140,000 for her to pose semi-nude. She rejected both offers.

A few minutes ago we talked to Lewis who said he was not pushing her to take either gig -- but merely passing the offers along. Lewis said Prejean had insisted they not turn anything down without running it by her.

Prejean -- who told us she was "shocked" at the news she was fired and learned about it only after we broke the story -- tells us she has been more than cooperative with pageant officials.

Prejean says, "What's behind this I think is a political debate. They don't agree with the stance that I took [on Prop 8]. Shanna [Moakler] is trying to bash me. They don't like me. From day one they wanted me out and they got what they wanted."

Prejean also told us she couldn't believe Donald Trump would say she treated people in the pageant "like s**t." For the record, Trump did tell Harvey Levin that on the phone earlier today. Prejean said if Trump really feels that way she's sorry, adding: "I've shown respect for every party involved, even when they haven't shown it back."

Prejean went on: "I was very respectful of people even when they slandered me and humiliated me. I have not once stooped down to their level."

As a proud believer in God I am glad to see this woman go. She does not believe everyone is equal, and she does not believe everyone deserves to be treated equaly. I'm glad she is banished from being able to spread prejudice and intolerance. This was the best choice they could have made. Now if they could just get prop 8 turned over that would be even better. Everyone on this plant deserves equal treatment.

The Miss USA put requirements on her that they KNEW should would not do like Playboy and Im a Celebrity Get me Out of Here SO they could fire her. She better off not having to deal with these enemies. Once she answered Perez's question and PEREZ performed his self promoting show, it was over. They tried to get Trump to do it in May but he refused so now they got their way. Perez made her famous and if he has not commented we would not know her name today. Perez hurt his own reputation though. Perez will go to the bloggers Z list in a year.

She can be "bigger than Miss USA" all she pleases

as long as she's not under a title that is supposed to represent ALL people, I don't care what she does. As far as I'm concerned if she doesn't believe in representing ALL people, then she didn't deserve the crown in the first place. It looks good on her. I hope the choices she made to spread her belief of intolerance eats at her as she's wiping the mascara-stained tears from her face.

First gay marriage, then age of consent laws, then whathaveyou, then the world descends into a twenyfo-segm perversion orgy!!! What I trying to say is that everyone has his or her opinions about things like that!!!!!

I supported her voicing her opinion and her courage for standing up for her convictions. I was pleased to hear that she was a Christian (as I am) and was glad to see the Christian community generally supporting her. Then, the whole "is she nude or isn't she nude" stuff came out, as well as the "did she lie or didn't she lie" and I just hoped she would think before she acted and spoke. I was glad when that seemed to blow over without being too huge.

But, I gotta say - now I have read the email exchange - and first of all - I question the Christian claim, because God tells us we will know other Christians by their love. He also tells us, when we are trying to discern if someone is a Christian, to look for the Fruit of the Spirit, which are explained in Galatins 5:33: "But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control."

I'm not sure I have seen any of those qualities in her, yet. And, in the email exchange, she was so petty, immature and self-absorbed - just the opposite of Christian qualities.

When she accepted the Miss California crown, she accepted a job. It appears to me through the email transcript that she is not cooperating with the people who hold her contract. In any business, failure to do your job is grounds for termination. I would have fired her, too.

She has greatly disappointed me. I don't think she is, at all, who she claims publicly to be. I hope this is the last we hear of her.

Hmmmmm ... They wanted you our from day one, so they bought you a "biblically correct" boob job? You wanted them to forward you ALL offers, then you criticize them for doing what you ask? You are told you aren't supposed to make appearances without approval from the pageant (as spelled out in your contract), so you go ahead and do them without approval anyway? You are assigned appearances to go to (also spelled out in your contract), and you don't show up for them, then expect to keep your job? You lie about the existence of semi-nude photos - repeatedly - and you expect that it will be ignored, even though your contract (which it appears you didn't read at all) says that you should tell them of any that exist - like Miss Rhode Island did and were approved? Geez, woman. You seem to be talking out of more sides of your mouth that even exist on the rest of us.

Stop blaming your comments on gay marriage for all of your problems. In no way were your comments a violation of your contract. You kept violating your contract, in spite of getting a second chance to play by the rules you agreed to when you signed your contract. Join the real world, do what your employer contracts you to do, and you won't have any problems.

Trump is a closet queen that for obvious reasons cannot hold a woman. They want a real man that does not bow down to queers and "swallow" their bs. What a chump to back down from the limp wristed fairies.
