The beauty pageant world never has a dull moment. Carrie Prejean has responded to the countersuit the Miss CA USA pageant filed against her on Monday. Carrie’s lawyer released a statement to RadarOnline.com where he accused the pageant officials of trying to besmirch Carrie.
“This is just the latest installment in K2 Production’s ongoing smear campaign against Carrie Prejean. They have proven, once again, that they will use whatever scurrilous accusations they can dredge up – or invent – to try and tarnish Carrie’s reputation and her good name. It is both appalling and pathetic to see K2 and their friends in Hollywood try to destroy this young woman simply for standing up for her beliefs.”
Keith Lewis, the executive director of the Miss CA USA pageant, told RadarOnline.com on Monday: “Carrie Prejean asked us for the breast augmentation because she felt it would make her more competitive in the Miss USA pageant. She asked for the money and never paid it back. The surgery cost $5,200.”
Prejean has written a book about being de-crowned as Miss California. Still Standing: The Untold Story Against Hate, Gossip and Political Attacks will hit bookstores on November 9. Carrie’s publisher tells RadarOnline.com that she wrote the book herself, and did not use a ghostwriter.
