Fresh off of Donald Trump's public affirmation that Miss California Carrie Prejean would keep her crown, former beauty queen and pageant director Shanna Moakler resigned from her post on Wednesday.

"Since the press conference yesterday, I had a chance to think about what has taken place, and I feel that at this time it is in my best interest to resign from the Miss California USA organization," Moaker tells Us.
