Just last week, Make Me Heal was certain that the recent Miss USA pageant would give rise to a scandal even juicier than Miss California Carrie Prejean’s views on gay marriage. Now it seems that not only were we right about a scandal, but we were right about a breast augmentation as well.
At the Miss USA pageant 21-year old contestant Miss California Carrie Prejean drew attention not only for her controversial remarks about gay marriage, but also for her possible breast implants, which Make Me Heal spotted already a week ago (See Make Me Heal’s story on Miss California Carrie Prejean). In the same story, Make Me Heal also discussed the plastic surgery procedures that Miss USA winner Kristen Dalton had herself.
Not only did the pageant officials confirm that Miss California has indeed gotten a breast augmentation, they even admitted that they paid for it.
“We assisted when Carrie came to us and voiced the interest in having the procedure done,” co-director Keith Lewis told Early Show co-anchor Maggie Rodriguez.
He went on, “We want to put her in the best possible confidence in order to present herself in the best possible light on a national stage. It’s not something we endorse, nor is it something that we suggest. But when we meet with the titleholder when she’s crowned Miss California, we put to her a litany of questions about how she feels about herself, what she feels she needs to work on, what she may need to change, what is good, what is not good.
“It’s a personal choice. Well, I think that it’s about how a woman feels about herself. In terms of, for me, it’s not a personal choice that I would recommend. But at the same time, I know so many women that have done the procedure and feel better about themselves and the way they present themselves. And I think that’s the question is, whether or not, when you’re looking at that procedure as an option, am I going to feel better about myself? It’s not about one night. It isn’t about one night of competition. And doing a procedure like that for one night of competition would be foolish.”
Carrie did indeed, look better proportioned in her swimsuit, even if she did still lose to Kristen Dalton. (See Make Me Heal’s story on Kristen Dalton’s plastic surgery).
Just as we recovering from the shock of the pageant’s directors admitting to buying the lovely young ladies a breast augmentation, semi-nude photos of Miss California also sparked a flurry of blogs.
Carrie has said that she was 17 at the time that the photos were taken, and has also said she believes she did not violate her Miss California contract when she gave pageant officials written assurance she never posed semi-nude, as she is modeling lingerie.
In the photos, Carrie appears topless, wearing panties and exposing the side of her breasts, which look to be newly augmented.
Miss California is Make Me Heal’s favorite kind of pageant queen: pretty and gossip-worthy.
