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."

Carrie is now able to get rich and even more coverage now that she's out of her contract. Gays still can't get married and our BIBLICALLY CORRECT PRESIDENT, VICE PRESIDENT AND SEC. OF STATE still agree with Carrie. Kooks still come out on the short end, but are too stupid to realize this. Typical

She is ridiculous and Trump should smarten up before this ridiculous contest is finally put to rest ... which is where it was headed before he stepped in and turned it into a semi-reality show! How do so many bad examples make it into this contest? They must use the same vetting process as the politicians.

The contest has gotten to the point where it is nothing more than votes for T&A. It can't possibly be based on anything they say otherwise she wouldn't have gotten where she did. "I think I believe....." She sounded like a complete idiot! You either believe something, or YOU DON'T! This contest was a very calculated stepping stone for someone who intends to capitalize off her looks and body. Just a down home Christian girl!

The Christian communmity should be ashamed of themselves for rallying behind her. Her anti gay marriage stance does NOT outweigh her non-Christian actions. What a bunch of hypocrites! They should have the convictions in their beliefs to state that they do not agree with gay marriage or Miss P altering her body or flashing her T i t s.

Would you like a little cheese with that whine, Carrie?

This chick has to be the dumbest broad to ever walk the planet. And I'm not talking about her opinion on gay marriage. She gets an easy gig - show up to an event and look pretty. That's it. Doens't require you to be a Rhodes Scholar and she cannot even manage that, but complains that she was treated unfairly. She got a second chance to do her job and she blew it, so no tears for you Princess. Time to polish up that resume and actually try working for a living now.

plamby's right. Remember Vannessa Williams? thanks to her Penthouse skit and the hoo-haa afterward, she has a better carrer than she would have if they forgave and forgat. Now Carrie is on that gravytrain and I say good for her. I'm a liberal and could not care if gays want to marry, but cruxifying Carrie FOR WHAT OBAMA HAS SAID IS NOTHING BUT DOUBLE STANDARDS AND HYPOCRISY. I am so angry that I plan to purchase her book... you know there's gonna be one. I support Carrie 110% because she has been set up. If she was so bad AFTER 30 INCIDENCES WHY ARE THE AMERICAN PEOPLE NOW HEARING ABOUT IT?

Let's see the evidence for her firing. I'm sure that the work enviroment was probably tense, but did it rise to termination level? Her continued presence was a great embarrassment to them. Funny how the first amendment only applies to left causes. If they can't prove grounds, I hope her lawyers shove it straight up their ***.

I never thought it out as thoroughly as you obviously have, but you're a 110% correct! Bawhahaha, now that I think about it like that, you're entirely right!!!! The liberal smear and attack machine did do this girl a huge favor and without that she would just be another nameless beauty queen!!! Great insight, I'm really laughing over here thinking about that. The last thing Hilton or Levin wanted to do was make this girl rich and a star, and they succeeded in doing both!!!! Too damn funny!

190. 173. She is incapable of telling the truth. She's been busted for every lie she's told, and she's STILL the victim. It's hard to believe that someone could be so stupid that they would think anyone would ever believe them again.

I can almost smell the hate coming from your post. Funny. Your ilk REQUIRES tolerance, yet you give NONE. Maybe when you figure out that hate doesn't work - you people might get somewhere. Until then - you're pretty much a fringe group. As it should be. Hell, even your own California voters beat you.

I'm wondering if the gays that attacked the little old lady in SF have been charged with a hate crime. Every society has its segments - and that could well be called hate against the elderly. When you stop TRYING to cram this down our throats, maybe, we can notice you. Until then - you people come across as highly weird, intolerant people. People willing to hurt old ladies, doing your best to sabotage careers, etc.

Why are we supposed to embrace you? You represent hate and manipulation. Re-figure your campaign,

You say that the previous post was filled with hate and intolerance. It seems to me that your post was filled with even more hate and intolerance that the one you quoted. By your own definition, the Left REQUIRES tolerance. Does that mean that the Right REJECTS tolerance? Of course, they do. After all, that's how we got involved in Iraq. Whenever the media took a closer look at the reports on WMDs and found that what the White House was saying didn't match up with reality, the Bush administration called those trying to tell the truth were "un-American" and effectively shut them down so they could get involved in a war that never should have happened.

I guess the Right believes it's OK to lie and refuse to do a job if it interferes with their message of intolerance.

Thanks TMZ, for your first even handed Prejean update. As to the snarky LA gays posting on this thread, stick a ... sock, in it. We had more than enough of your hate and intolerance post- Prop 8.

Now Carrie is free to make all the money she wants!!! Way to go Harvey, you probably single-handedly made this girl a fortune, much to your hateful chagrin of course!!! The intolerate left will continue to never get what they want until they begin practicing what they preach. I will continue to oppose gay marriage until the day comes that the gay mafia can behave like normal, civil human beings and stop being controlled by their anger and emotions, and actually have a civil discourse. Sadly this will not happen for decades to come. Liberals are too filled with hate and intolerance.

Wow, the queers are busy on this site today. A straight must struggle to wedge in a bit of sanity into this maelstrom of viciousness. I am with Prejean and not with you hate filled inner city billies. The stupid in this nation used to reside in the hills of Arkansas, NO LONGER, they evidently all moved to the inner cities. That must be so, otherwise why do we have this socialist in office and all the hate for Prejean. This fits so nicely into the hate filled American life now it seems.
