    What do you guys think? I personally think its the right thing... she has her opinion, one that people disagree with, and she stood her ground and answered well.

    The question had no right answer... someone would have been upset. CA was pretty divided in the voting, so had she said anything the other direction the opposing voters would have been just as angry.

    So what do you think?

    I don't think anyone cares. It's a beauty pageant. They're judged on their appearance, rather than their "intellect".

    And I do agree, it was a loaded question. And the whole thing was blown out of proportion. It's not like she was running for presidency or anything. icon_lol.gif

    The main reason her crown was being called into question is because of the nude pics, not the Perez Look at me Hilton question.

    Since other contestants have been stripped of their crowns for it, she should have been stripped as well for that reason and that reason alone.

    As to her being against gay marriage, she is entitled to her own opinion and I only care about that in so much as she has become a spokesperson for, albeit they are a joke, the National Organization for Marriage.

    What somebody with a body like that, wouldn't have semi nudes somewhere? They should just get rid of that rule alltogether because....
    by looking at those other beauties...I'm not even straight and damn!
    If they can get that reaction from a gay, why wouldn't they show it off at some point?

    I agree, and actually think she would have had a real chance at losing the crown had it not been for Prick Hilton. There are far more people out there who would rather see him dethroned than a beauty pageant queen. I think Donald and his crew didn't want to give Hilton any reason to be able to position himself as a role-model and opinion leader. So, in the end, it appears only Hilton lost. The question is, has he helped to progress groups like NOM? I hope not, but think it's entirely possible.

    The thing IS ....

    Her crown being called into question wasn't because of her answer at the pageant It was because of her signed contract
    As part of her being Miss California she had to; number one reveal any past nude or "semi"nude pictures that she had taken in the past
    number two, while being Miss California she cannot make appearances for any groups or companies not authorized by the pageant board

    Simple rules right?

    But wait .... she was wronged
    The big bad photographer took her picture when she didn't notice on a windy day when her vest happened to blow open
    'cept in those pictures she's LOOKIN' Straight at THE FRIGGIN' CAMERA icon_eek.gif

    This is Just like when ever the right gets caught doing something wrong
    In the face of overwhelming evidence just deny deny deny

    Take it from Sara, Dick, and George

    Who cares? Perez Hilton, or whatever his name is, made us all look bad and now Miss California is the victim embraced by conservatives and just about everyone else as well. The more attention we pay to this, the worse we look.

    My opinion is that the Donald crafted the whole thing because the Miss USA pageant needed better ratings. LOL!

    All emotion aside, I think if it was proven she violated her contract, she should be gone.... if not, she should remain.

    Who cares? It's a beauty pageant, not the Nobel Prize. Vapidity is the norm, not the exception.
    Making an issue out of trivia like this only makes us seem like hysterical drama queens. Why gladden our enemies by confirming their most dismissive stereotypes of us?

    when was the last time anyone cared about the ms america pageant? the only person she is helping is donald trump.

    as far as perez hilton, that is what he does... that is why so many people read his blog. he is not my thing, but of course has the right to think/write/say whatever he wants. no one is forcing anyone to agree/read/listen to him.

    Honestly, an organization which is owned by Donald Trump doesn't instill the most moral sense within me. She let Miss Teen USA keep her crown after she was caught partying it up, right up her nose! Who gives a fuck. She is some hillbilly from California who does her make up real pretty and shouldn't open her mouth.

    I watched a commentary with Michael Musto. He made a great comment in which he roughly said that she is so stupid and she will fade. There is no reason to get all up in arms about her. Anyone her refers to the normal man-woman marriage as opposite marriage doesn't scare me one bit!

    I don't really care about it. I meant, She keeps saying that she lost the title bc of the answer. C'mon, the other girl is more pretty/sweet, she deserved to win. While I agree that she has the right for her opinions (no matter how conservative maybe, she did violated the contract, she gets to keep her crown bc Donald Trump is also a Conservative/Rich/Republican anti-gay a-hole) Oops, that came out kind of harsh, oh well. icon_cool.gif

    True, had Perez just accepted the answer as just someone's opinion like someone with class would have done, none of this firestorm would have ever happened and the world would have likely forgotten about Miss California by now. Instead, Perez made himself look like an ass, and made us all look bad in the process, and at the same time he didn't do a thing to help the cause -- in fact, he probably set it back. Meanwhile, he probably set Miss California up for a huge career cuz now she is everywhere. Even though Donald Trump said he would love to have him back as a judge, I wouldn't hold your breath. How can he possibly justify hiring a judge who had called one of the contestants in the past a dumb bitch among other things.

    I think it is absolutely stupid that Perez was allowed to have a secret question. The fact that it was about gay marriage asked to Ms. California... its suspicious.
