ON RADAR FIRST: Miss California Stand-Off Next Week

As “sources” and past title winners come forward calling for current Miss California Carrie Prejean to step down, RadarOnline.com has learned that early next week the battle for a crown is set to come to a head finally.

This week, Donald Trump announced he would hold a press conference regarding the pageant next Tuesday in New York. The Miss California USA pageant officials announced Friday they would be holding a separate press conference in Los Angeles on Monday. Instead of Prejean, runner-up Miss Malibu Tami Farrell will be in attendance.

“The Press Conference will address many issues surrounding Miss California USA,” the official press release said. “Participants in this press conference include: Keith Lewis & Shanna Moakler- Co Executive Directors of the Miss California USA Pageant, Chelsea Gilligan- the current Miss California Teen USA, Tami Farrell- 1st Runner-Up to Miss California USA 2009.”

A pageant source confirmed to RadarOnline.com that Prejean “has been invited but has yet to accept.”

When contacted by RadarOnline.com, Trump’s office was unaware of the Monday conference though the pageant source affirmed that “Trump knows about it.”
