Miss California Pageant Director Resigns
Shanna Moakler (below), has resigned as the director of the Miss California USA Pageant.
“I cannot with a clear conscience move forward supporting and promoting the Miss Universe Organization when I no longer believe in it, or the contracts I signed committing myself as a youth,” she continues. “I want to be a role model for young women with high hopes of pageantry, but now feel it more important to be a role model for my children. I am sorry and hope I have not let any young supporters down but wish them the best of luck in fulfilling their dreams.”
Pageant officials said Monday the Miss California USA, Carrie Prejean, violated her contract by lobbing for an anti-gay marriage group and by failing to disclose the existence of revealing photos. They named Tami Farrell, the runner-up, as “Beauty of California Ambassador.” But pageant owner Donald Trump decided Monday to allow Prejean to keep her crown.Click here for reuse options!
