Mr. Prejean also said he has not seen the topless photos of his daughters, and that he does not even care that they exist.

Regarding criticism directed at Carrie for her stance against same-sex marriage,  Mr. Prejean said his children were brought up to believe that marriage is between a man and a woman, and he accused the other side of  not being tolerant nor accepting of Carrie's right to voice her own opinions.

Will Prejean is also speaking out about explosive reports involving his nasty divorce with Carrie's mother.

Prejean told that he "absolutely did not" say that Carrie's stepdad was gay because he had a mustache. Although the pageant dad admitted that the divorce was tough, he said the family is very close now.

He also addressed rumors that his ex-wife is now seeing a woman.  When asked about this, Will, in a strange response said:  "No.. but she loves to play bingo."
