Miss California Carrie Prejean Has “No regrets”April 21st, 2009 - 5:33 pm ICT by GD
In what has become the most talked about moment in the Miss USA 2009 pageant, Perez Hilton asked a question to Miss California Carrie Prejean and her answer caused the audience to give her thumbs down, and possibly cost her the crown. She is still not backing out from what she says because she has “no regrets” about the answer she offered to gossip blogger Perez Hilton’s question.
Perez Hilton spoke about Vermont’s recent ruling that same sex marriages would be made legal in the state and asked Miss California is every state should follow Vermont’s example and if they should not, why. To this, Miss California Carrie Prejean answered, “I think that I believe that a marriage should be between a man and a woman. No offense to anybody out there, but that’s how I was raised.”
Her answer left many frazzled as it did Keith Lewis, the co0dirctor of the Miss California pageant, and he said, “”I am personally … hurt that Miss California believes marriage rights belong only to a man and a woman.” Perez Hilton released a video on his blog where he called Prejean a “”stuipd b***h”. But Prejean seems unfazed by the criticism and defended herself saying, “I wouldn’t have had it any other way. I stated an opinion that was true to myself, and that’s all I can do. It did cost me my crown. It is a very touchy subject and [Hilton] is a homosexual, and I see where he was coming from and I see the audience would’ve wanted me to be more politically correct. But I was raised in a way that you can never compromise your beliefs and your opinions for anything. I feel like I won.”
