Picture - Donald Trump at Miss California

* MISS CALIFORNIA KEEPS HER TITLE Beauty pageant boss DONALD TRUMP has allowed CARRIE PREJEAN to keep her Miss California title, after she become embroiled in a topless photo scandal. Prejean, 21, has courted controversy since she lost the Miss USA title in April (09), after speaking out against same-sex marriage onstage at the pageant. A number of photos were later leaked online purportedly showing her baring her breasts, breaking one of the rules of the competition, which would force Trump to strip her of her title. But at a press conference in Manhattan, New York on Tuesday (12May09), Trump revealed Prejean would remain Miss California, because an initial topless snap was taken when she was a minor at 17, while a second batch published online on Tuesday morning were photoshopped by an unscrupulous photographer. Trump told the press, She will remain Miss California. She, I believe, will do a fantastic job. We're very proud of her. It's been a very tough time for her. She has taken a lot of abuse from people who shouldn't be handing out abuse. But she is tough, she's smart and she's very beautiful, and that's why she's Miss California. An emotional Prejean thanked her parents and sister for their support, as well as God, for trusting me with this large task. She also slammed the photographer who leaked the latest batch of topless shots, which she claims were taken in between pictures on a windy day during a shoot for a surfing magazine.
