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."

139. I hope the media dosen't make her into a victim yet again!! To me, when she answered the question, she just sounded uneducated. What the hell is an Oposite Marraige anyway?


Wow! Pot - meet kettle. Maybe we'll answer your question when you can spell a sentence correctly. And you laugh at her for sounding uneducated. Remember that old saying about glass houses?????? You make her look like a Rhodes Scholar.

Don't have an opinion of your own, especially not if it's not politically correct, and don't refuse to be commercially exploited. The latter does not surprise me, but America's gayification may be even more severe than I thought.

Please don't ask me what I'm full of. It isn't pretty.

she doesn't want to pose for playboy, which would pay her a lot of money, but she'd pose topless for another photographer for mere pittance?


her prop 8 position is not what matters here. she was given a second chance & she blew it! can somebody please shut her up & explain things to her. she doesn't want to hear any other explanation about her getting fired!

It would appear this lady has become a "flag carrier" for the RIGHT and that her ego had gotten to her head. She insists that the Miss California Pageant "wanter her out," and that "this is political." IT IS, the RIGHT (Anti-Gay), has manipulated thick chick into believeing that she "represents" the morally superior. IN FACT, this is what is WRONG with our society and the RIGHT in general. People with similar hateful, narrow-minded agendas will go through any length to further their agenda.
This would include obviously USING some "dumb blonde" (admittedly cute), as a prime example of "the wholesome qualities we all love."
The problem with this is that many of us take her superficial beauty to mean that she is "beautiful inside." We can see this is NOT the case.
Ms. Prejean, who we are told, MAY come from a family where the mother is gay and the father is gay and where everyone was accusing the other of being gay,IS THOROUGHLY CORRUPT.

It is ALL ABOUT HER. She has her 15 minutes, more than likely she be a "martyr" for what is "right" in this country, when if fact, it would appear that she is "greedy," "opportunistic," "vain" "deceitful," and down-right uneducated.

I believe she had a RIGHT to say what she felt at the pageant. She was asked. We may not agree with her viewpoint, but it was her right to speak HER TRUTH.

Unfortunately,her "truth" has NOW been proven to be dysfunctionalism. More than likely this "Christian" (I like how they use that word so readily, KIND OF A PASS), will become the next BIG PORNO STAR.

Cute but worthless as a person.

151. Of course, I forgot to mention that I'm 45 and live in Mom's attic. And I should know since I too am 45 and live in Mom's attic.. but I admire the fact that at least you post for yourself and don't act like a little b*tch pretending to be others making snarky and childish remarks about themselves.. so kudos for that Tom.. I am not worthy to suck your toe jam brah.

I heard Rush asked her to come over and hit the vicodin with him, but didn't want to pay her for the pleasure so she said no. Good for you Carrie! make 'em pay first, the screw 'em. Viva la conservatism!!

Wow. I didn't realize I come across so hateful. Sorry, everyone at TMZ. There's enough misery in the world without me throwing my two cents in.
