At the Tuesday presser, the reprieved Miss California blamed the photographer for the topless photos that were just made public, saying it’s “appalling that a professional photographer would violate my trust by releasing an unauthorized and inappropriate image taken in-between posed shots, on a windy day, which I was unaware of.”


“I was actually standing on a cliff and it was very very windy,” Prejean explained, “and he had to have gotten some shot of me where I was exposed.”  When asked why she didn’t tell the pageant, as required, that she had posed semi-nude, she replied, “Do you remember what you did when you were 16?”  Well, no, but I do think most of us could distinctly recall if there was a suggestive photo shoot around the time braces were coming off.


Does the photo above look like a posed shot or one taken “in between posed shots”?  We are to believe that she’s out doing a photo shoot wearing only an unbuttoned vest on top, with a photographer and who knows who else around.  She had no intention of showing much skin, but the wind just happened to come along and reveal her nipples at the exact moment the photographer took unauthorized photos.


As TMZ, which has the photos, points out, the newly-released shots, which show more than the ones taken when she was 17, were done when she was well above age, and not when she was an innocent teen who didn’t know what she was doing.


Again, I don’t care that she keeps her crown.  But the conservatives embracing Ms. Prejean wouldn’t be rallying around her if a liberal, pro-gay marriage beauty contestant had these explanations of semi-nude photos.  We’d be hearing lectures about  how “liberal values” were driving this country over a moral cliff, and that with Barack Obama in office, it’s just the beginning of a precipitous moral decline.
