Sex Tape Unravels Former Beauty Queen

11/5/2009 2:44 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Carrie Prejean -- the dethroned Miss California USA -- is in meltdown mode because of a solo sex tape.

Prejean -- who made headlines for her stand against gay marriage and her strong ties to fundamentalist religion -- is supposed to appear on "Today" next week to push her new book.. "Today" producers have called TMZ, making it clear the interview has changed and they want details on the sex tape.

TMZ has also received calls from CNN, FOX and various other outlets asking for info.

The reason they're all calling TMZ -- we obtained the tape several months ago but decided not to run it because it was too racy.

As we first reported, Prejean and Miss California USA officials had sued each other and were in settlement talks last week. Sources tell us Prejean was demanding more than $1 million but when Pageant officials showed her they had a copy of the tape, it took less than a minute for Prejean to fold and walk away with nothing in her pocket.

Prejean had sued the Pageant for allegedly firing her because of her beliefs and disclosing confidential information about her -- including her breast implants. The Pageant countersued, claiming Prejean had repeatedly violated the terms of being Miss Cali USA.

The reason the tape became such a smoking gun -- under Pageant rules, all contestants signed forms that gave assurance they had no nude videos or pictures in their past.

Chris Jericho Slurs Speech


WWE star Chris Jericho is wrestling with a pretty serious controversy -- after he made a slew of offensive slurs against Middle Easterners and gays.



Jericho was at the Sacramento Horror Film Festival two weeks ago ... for a screening of a movie in which he appears. During a Q&A session, Jericho referred to the moderator several times as "Hadji" -- a term sometimes used as a racial slur against Middle Easterners.

After the first wave of slurs -- and a random shot at Paris Hilton -- the host jokingly takes Jericho's drink to sniff it for booze, when Chris chimes back, "it's apple juice ... fag."

Jericho tells TMZ, "After seeing the video I realize some inappropriate comments were made and I apologize if I offended anybody." Jericho continues, "Just know that everyone on stage was having a blast and we all shared a drink and a laugh after! The good news is I got my wish of being posted on TMZ."

Yes you did, Chris.

Actually, the people I feel sorry for are the REAL Christians (who preach love and tolerance) and the gay community. This girl does not accurately represent the genuine Christian community (those who really believe the teachings of Jesus Christ) and Perez Hilton does not accurately represent the gay community (they're not THAT extreme). They're both embarassments, really. She's a hypocrite and he's an instigator. Both groups get a bad rep because of people like them.

Yeah there is a lot of hypocrisy calling in this room, "beauty" contests are not hypocrisy for anyone, real christian women can wear a bikini, & wear shorts for sports, the rule of modesty is based on the perversion of the viewers not the other way around, like in islam. So they can even pose for life drawing sessions; all that being said, if she was on "girls gone wild kissing another girl" then she would be a hypocrite, or if she was a whore or had an orgy on or off camera, or was a subscriber to the playboy channel,yeah she would be a phoney. The line of his wrath is what it's all about, and being wise enough to not push your fault line luck. You can't have sex with someone outside of marriage; but there is no such thing as queers marrying so it doesn't matter what she; obama; or anyone else says.
'cause the only being that can say you are truly married is God, with delegated authority to priest or judge. So if the command has been universally issued don't be a queer in my universe it's abomination to me.
The command will never change; so don't waste your time TMZ; trying to pester one goofy 22 year old, your charge won't help you, or any of your queer staff or for your former queer nation/act up friends and their adopted colleagues you're trying to please because of the Maine democratic vote. It's 20, 000+ years of creation evolution and common sense you are fighting against , not one barely legal to drink adult....just silly!
