The typical story involving beauty queens and nude photos goes something like this:. Caught on the defensive, pageant officials react to the scandal at press conferences and in written statements, announcing their plans to stand by their woman or strip her of her crown. Now hold on to your hats, because here is a story that deviates from the usual script.

Her parents split in , and the ugly divorce was full of allegations. Read that story here. Back to the crown drama. On Wednesday Prejean's runner-up Miss Malibu told "Access Hollywood's" Billy Bush she is ready to step in should Prejean lose her crown because of a morality clause in the pageant contract contestants sign that promises they have no nude or semi-nude photos in their past. The second photo is similar to the first , with Prejean's bare back to the camera, only she's no longer smiling. The release of the second photo comes out days after Prejean, in an email to the Miss California pageant obtained by TMZ, promised there was only one such photo in existence. There are no other photos of me. This was the only one I took. TMZ, however, claims it has seen four such photos, as over the weekend they were offered to the site in a sale.
Can we get just one more post out of Miss California Carrie Prejean? Yep, you bet we can! In a tease, website TheDirty. Remember those photos of Vanessa Williams that got her crown stripped? Looks like Miss California is en route to the same. All I can say folks is step lightly. Just step lightly for now.
Prejean said the photos -- taken when she was 17 and aspiring to be a Victoria's Secret model -- were being used in a "vicious and mean-spirited" effort to silence her for "defending traditional marriage. The year-old Miss USA contestant has been the center of controversy since she declared her opposition to same-sex marriage in a response to a question on the pageant stage last month. Her fate was being discussed in "closed-door meetings" Tuesday among California pageant officials, lawyers and representatives of Donald Trump, who owns the international competition, said Miss California USA spokesman Roger Neal. The spokesman for Miss California USA provided CNN with a copy of the pageant contract Prejean signed last year agreeing that the discovery of semi-nude photos could mean disqualification. One photo published Monday on a Web site -- The Dirty -- showed barely more skin than the bikini Prejean wore in the pageant's swimsuit competition. While she appears topless, she was turned away from the camera with her arm covering most of her breast.
