All it takes are a few topless photos to set the beauty pageant world on fire once again.

As photos of a teenage Carrie Prejean modeling in just pink underwear surfaced on the web on Tuesday, pageant watchers and insiders wondered how the revelation would affect her crown. But Prejean's grandmother Jeanette Coppola is confident her blonde offspring will not be dethroned.

"She is not worried about losing her crown.  She isn’t worried at all," Coppola told exclusively. "She is only going to be Miss California for a few more months and then she’ll give it to another girl. She is doing so well now; she’s just going to school and living her life."

"It’s a disgrace that those other photos showed up, she was young, she was only 16 and she had underwear on! She was just having pictures taken because she wanted to be a model and she is pretty enough to be a model.”

Coppola even reveals one of Prejean's ongoing fans: Donald Trump. “He called her again and wants her to go back there on Thursday, but I don’t know if she is going to go. She has a lot of offers and a lot of money coming in and I don’t know what else he wants to talk to her about.  She was just on O’Reilly.”

“I don’t understand this story about the implants," she said addressing the other controversy stemming from Prejean's tenure. "I bet not one of those girls doesn’t have implants or isn’t going to get them in the future.  Why can’t they just use a picture of Carrie in her beautiful gown instead of in a bikini?"
