Chelsea Gilligan Releases PSA with Miss California USA OrganizationMay 12th, 2009 - 7:25 pm ICT by GD
Last Sunday, The Miss California USA organization launched its public service announcement, “I Believe” featuring Shandi Finnessey (Miss USA 2004), Meagan Tandy (Miss California USA 2007), Keylee Sanders (Miss Teen USA 1995), Jill Foley (Miss New Mexico USA 1994), Tami Farrell - (Miss TEEN USA 2003), Susie Castillo (Miss USA 2003), Brook Lee (Miss Universe 1997), Chelsea Gilligan (Miss California Teen USA 2009), Shanna Moakler (Miss USA 1995) and Raquel Beezley (Miss California USA 2008).
This PSA, called “I Believe … The beauty of California” was made to promote the diversity of the state with a line like “I believe when I express my opinion I have a responsibility to do it in a way that respects others who may not agree.”
It is yet another take on the current Miss California Carrie Prejean’s answer at the event finale of Miss USA where she said that according to her principles, nuptials should remain strictly between a man and a woman, and whipped up a storm of controversy from those supporting gay marriages.
Meanwhile Prejean stands a chance to lose her crown after semi-nude pictures of her were published on a website. She had done the lingerie ad as a teenager and had not disclosed them at the event unlike Miss Rhode Island who showed and got approval for her raunchy pictures from the organizers.
Miss California had signed a Miss USA contract where she confirmed that she will “conduct activities in life according to the highest morals standards” and agreed that “appearing in public or permitting [herself] to be photographed in a state of partial or total nudity” violated that provision, including photographs on social networking sites like MySpace or Facebook.
