RadarOnline.com has exclusively obtained a statement from Donald Trump on the dismissal of Miss California USA Carrie Prejean.
“I told Carrie she needed to get back to work and honor her contract with the Miss California USA Organization and I gave her the opportunity to do so,” Trump says.
“Unfortunately it just doesn’t look like it is going to happen and I offered Keith Lewis my full support in making this decision. Carrie is a beautiful young woman and I wish her well as she pursues her other interests.”
California pageant director Lewis will name runner-up Tami Farrell the new queen "effective immediately."
