The day after Carrie Prejean was told she could keep her Miss California crown, Shanna Moakler has resigned, she confirms to Usmagazine.com exclusively.
“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,” Moakler tells Usmagazine.com.
“I cannot with a clear conscious [sic] move forward supporting and promoting the Miss Universe Organization when I no longer believe in it, or the contracts I signed committing myself as a youth,” she continues. “I want to be a role model for young women with high hopes of pageantry, but now feel it more important to be a role model for my children. I am sorry and hope I have not let any young supporters down but wish them the best of luck in fulfilling their dreams.”
I’m curious was Ms. Moakler being a role model for young women when she posed for Playboy?
I don’t mean to be snarky but this has nothing do with Carrie Prejean’s work as model and everything to do with Ms. Prejean’s position on gay marriage… You may have missed it in the hype over the so called topless photos of Ms. Prejean but Ms. Moakler has announced she’ll be appearing in a new ad supporting gay rights. She apparently shot a print ad condemning Proposition 8, the initiative that bans gay marriage in California on April 28th.
