Miss California USA 2009, Carrie Prejean was fired by Trump

Miss California USA 2009 and Miss USA 2009 1st run-up, Carrie Prejean was officially fired by Donald Trump (Pageant owner) because of repeated contract violations.

“This was a decision based solely on contract violations including Ms. Prejean’s unwillingness to make appearances on behalf of the Miss California USA organization,” executive director Keith Lewis said in a statement. “After our press conference in New York we had hoped we would be able to forge a better working relationship. However, since that time it has become abundantly clear that Carrie is unwilling to fulfill her obligations under our contract and work together”, he added.

Even Mr. Trump, who co-owns the Miss USA organization and saved Prejean from losing her crown last month, did not stand in the way this time.

“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,” Donald Trump said in the statement. “Unfortunately it just doesn’t look like it is going to happen and I offered Keith my full support in making this decision. Carrie is a beautiful young woman and I wish her well as she pursues her other interests.”

Miss California USA 2009 1st run-up Tami Farrell (also Miss Teen USA 2002) will immediately take over the crown and Prejean’s responsibilities as Miss California. The current Miss USA 2009, Kristen Dalton and Miss Universe 2008, Dayana Mendoza will also lend a hand in making appearances.

Miss USA 2009 2nd run-up, Alicia Monique Blanco of Arizona, steps up to 1st runner-up status, giving her a chance to become Miss USA 2009 if in case Kristen Dalton fails to do her responsibilities or if she wins the Miss Universe 2009 pageant next August 23 to be held in Nassau, Bahamas.
