The newly crowned Miss California Carrie Prejean has proved to be amongst the more controversial beauty pageant winners. The scandal continues as the pageant has demanded repayment for Carrie’s breast augmentation.
22-year old Carrie Prejean stunned the nation when she openly announced her views on gay marriage. Then pageant followers were stunned again when Carrie came out about her breast augmentation, which was paid for with pageant funds. (See Make Me Heal’s story on Carrie Prejean’s Breast Implants).
Since her initial controversy, Carrie has been dethroned as the reigning Miss California, with pageant officials citing continued alleged breach of contract issues as the reason.
Now, the pageant is also asking Carrie for repayment of what they say was a $5200 loan made with an oral agreement to pay for breast implants.
Manhattan plastic surgeon Dr David Shafer says, “This sounds like a complex legal issue. However, it is ridiculous lawsuits like this that are tying up our court system. If the California Pageant is hard up for $5200, then they have bigger problems than this lawsuit. Why they are paying for a contestant’s implants in the first place is another interesting question altogether.”
In addition to the $5200, the pageant is also asking for profits from a tell-all book that Carrie has written that is due out next month.
Plastic surgeon Dr Richard Ellenbogen says, “Duh! If the Miss California Pageant was, for example, an amorous boyfriend who bought breast implants for his girlfriend and then he fondled away but then they broke up, could he ask for his money back? I don’t think so. Get real Miss California Pageant. You are a jealous boyfriend and deserve only memories.”
It seems that even after being dethroned, Carrie has kept her title as a scandal queen and Make Me Heal looks forward to the next chapter of her saga.
