Does Shanna Moakler have good reason to take umbrage at Carrie Prejean?
According to a report in Us magazine, the co-pageant director and former Miss USA said it was “in her best interest to resign.”
"I cannot with a clear conscious 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 said. "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."
Prejean was named first runner-up at the April 19 pageant, during which she cause a firestorm by responding to a judge's question by saying she favored limiting marriage to a man and a woman.
Sounded convincing--until I read the Wikipedia article on Shanna Moakler.
