Miss California Responds To The Controversy

| Filed under: Gay Gay GayLGBT


Miss California, Carrie Prejean, spoke to Access Hollywood today, Monday, about the major drama surrounding her answer to our gay marriage question.

In her own words, Miss California now says:
“I feel like I won. I feel like I’m the winner. I really do,” noting that on Monday, she had 1,000 messages on Facebook and 2,000 friend requests. She adds that her answer "did cost me my crown. I wouldn’t have had it any other way. I said what I feel. I stated an opinion that was true to myself and that’s all I can do. It is a very touchy subject and he [Perez] is a homosexual and I see where he was coming from and I see the audience would’ve wanted me to be more politically correct. But I was raised in a way that you can never compromise your beliefs and your opinions for anything."

Prejean's sister, however feels differently about gay marriage:
"My [heterosexual] sister is a second lieutenant in the Air Force and she is a gay rights activis. She supports gay people, she supports gay marriage. My beliefs have nothing to do with my sister or my mom, or whatever. She was just in my hotel room and she said, ‘Sis, I’m not offended by anything that you said. We have two different opinions and I love you because of it. I love you because you stood up for what was right, and it’s not a matter of being gay or not gay, it’s a matter of you competing for Miss USA and getting a question and answering it to the best of your ability. [My sister] has her own views. She’s a 22-year-old woman who’s in the Air Force who’s extremely educated. She debates with my dad all the time about it. That’s what’s so great about being an American – we’re able to have our own opinions.”

As for Carrie’s love life, she is keeping mum on her on/off relationship with Michael Phelps:
“He is a great man,” she says, but, adding, "We can talk about that a different day.”

    Perez…be very careful about taking on those Beauty Pagent types…they can be brutal, girlfriend!

    So, Micheal Phelps likes the dumb ones eh? [/I'm not saying this because of her views, but "opposite marriage" does deaserve a mention]

  3. 303

    HAHA nice dick

    Perez, it's obvious that she isn't very bright and they (beauty queens or beauty queen want to be's) usually aren't, no surprise there. However if she had a better command of the English language "from her country" she might have found an alternative way to answer. News alert it's our country.

    I know you were frustrated with her answer and were just speaking out of anger when you called her a dump beeyacch. I'm also aware of the apology note added to the head of this blog, that should be enough.

    Miss California is a dumb blonde - she reminds of another dumb blonde Joanie Dodds who basically said the same thing back when I last spoke to her in 2004. Funny how she now hangs with the gays!! Hey Joanie hypocrite's "won't inheriate 'god's' kingdom!" - They all need a mirror and a reality check for what life is - ONE BIG RAINBOW!

    way to go miss california (: What you did was absolutly insane Perez! She has her opinions about things and when you asked her the question you should have been prepared that she MIGHT NOT answer exactly how you would like her too! Why even have that as a question if your only looking for ONE answer?! Pageants are not even 100% suppose to be judged on what your answer is on the question ESPECIALLY when its a opinionated question! It should have been judged on how WELL she answered it! That was not fair to her! She can not help that, that is what she believes and how she was raised & that she happened to get that question…. NOT HER FAULT. & btw, what the heck do you know about judging pageants Perez it was crazy you were even one of the judges to begin with, along with most of the other judges! COME ON NOW.

  7. 307

    she shouldn't be attacked because of her views even though they are wrong! They should just legalize commitment ceremonies so they can have the same rights but uppity religious people wont get all pissed because it's 'marriage'. most Gay couples I know just want the same rights, not necessarily a 'marriage' but the ability to be legally bound and get health care and all that

  8. 308

    But she really lost it by looking like a fake baked, bleach blonde tranny bloe up doll!

    Perez must be so pissed she disagreed with his belief yet Miley Cyrus said 'everyone deserves happiness' (which is true)

  9. 309

    I say boy - cot this jerk! don't post or visit his site or give him any attention. He is the real moron in all this.

  10. 310

    I think that everyone has there right to there own opinion. She shouldn't be attacked because of her religious views she is only human. You guys need to leave her alone because i am sure that you have your opinions and truthfully the bible says that marriage is between a man and a woman.

  11. 311

    So much for freedom of speech yet we're supposed to do everything the gays want like it's some disability.

    So anyone who opposes Mario is the enemy? I thought this country was based on freedom especially freedom of speech? So let's all follow the same path and be robots.

    You know why lots of people don't like gays and why lots of people don't want gays to marry? Cause of gays like "Perez Hilton" and how they act. Do what they say or get smeared. Do things their way or be the enemy. We're all supposed to have tolerance towards gays but yet there's a lot of intolerance when you don't do what they want.

    You're an example of why people dislike gays and don't want them to marry.

  12. 312

    This woman has more class, dignity, and admirable conduct than that piece of sh** Perez can ever hope to accumulate in his pathetic fatass existence. If she wasn't a better person she would take this asshole to court for libel. Just look at all the multicultural mafia militant leftwing nutjobs ganging up on her like cronies. ALL SHE SAID WAS THAT SHE DIDN'T BELIEVE IN GAY MARRIAGE! PERIOD! And just for that, look at all these dumbfuck answers. "She's racist and discriminatory." "She belongs back in the Stone Age." "She lost all credibility." "She should lie down and spread 'em like butter." "She's lost touch with 2009." All of you character assassinating 'liberal' fascists need to get assraped. I have nothing against gays, but asswipes like Perez and the fuckers here eating out of his ass make me feel like punching the hell out of something.

    Perez Hilton is a vulgar, numbskulled, childhood-raped general asswipe who I hope gets raped hard and bloody up the rear by a prison inmate and tells his mother on her grave how much he loved it before he goes off savagely bullying teenaged girls like the mound of dung and earwax covered by fornicating camel fleas that he is. What a show of manhood Perez! Here's one imbecile whose father you'd wish had pulled out early.

  13. 313

    And last time I looked numbskulls, California voted on a gay marriage BAN, so how was Miss California NOT representing her state? Get some fing education before you badmouth someone you've never heard of just because all your friends are doing it!

  14. 314

    Who is against gay "marriage"? OBAMA, BIDEN, CLINTON.

    Well, did you vote for them? If you did, Stop being a hypocrite bec. they have their own convictions too and YOU supported them.

  15. 315

    Good for you Carrie Rejean for sticking to your values, hence living with integrity. You cannot be persecuted for being asked for your honest opinion, giving that opinion, just because it does not match Perez's opinion.

    Marriage was a concept invented by the church, hence it was based on their doctrine. In that doctrine, it condemns homosexuality, and the definitive trait of marriage is that it is between a MAN and a WOMAN!

    Civil unions are allowed for homosexuals, but marriage is a concept that can only be modified by the creators of the concept. For other special interest groups to try to change a concept that does not belong to them is like someone who does not own a product to tamper with it for their own special interest though it has been copyrighted.

    Gays are still free to live together and they are not thrown in jail for it, and civil unions are permitted, so the only real difference is semantics. Get over it, Perez.

  16. 316

    marriage should remain between adam & eve not adam & steve. people like you are pathethic mario and i hope racist back stabbing fudge packers like you get whats coming to you. as for ms prejean i you got props for sticking to your beliefs.

  17. 317

    Of course, long-term gay couples should be entitled to the same civil rights as any other couple… but the debate lies within the rhetoric. Leave the traditional terminology alone and you'll have better luck in achieving your goals. "MARRIAGE" traditionally exists between a man and a woman, and what you seek is not traditional, in any sense. Call it like it is, and we'll all be more accepting: Create your own, new, flamboyant phrases. Rather than "marriage", why not call it "QUEERAGE"… Instead of "husband and wife", why not "shitty dick and anal leaker"? Besides, why would a mass of cock-smokers and carpet munchers want to be associated with humdrum, hetero terminology, anyway? Blaze your own flaming paths to Hell, and leave tradition alone.

  18. 318

    Yeah, Perez. Don't be such a fag about this situation, kay? ^_^

  20. 320

    so.. should a straight person be angry about gay people expressing their opinions?

  21. 321

    Re: Animlovr

    Hm, she can't handle the heat?
    Ok, so you're saying that someone who's gonna be honest with you is someone who can't handle the heat? And this makes her dumb? So public figures who handle the question by giving you a PC answer is someone you would respect and want to represent you in government?

    So you're okay with being lied to and given the run around?

    It begs the question as to 'are you a cookie cutter kind of person like many out there who are happy to be appeased with an answer that everyone else says is the right answer? I think her answer is the correct and appropriate answer. She stated what she believes in, she states if other feel differently that's fine too. But PH is happy he got to ask the question because it drove up the number of hits on his website. You can have your own opinion, but hopefully it's based on some facts.
