Carrie Prejean’s book is coming out soon, but her name has been fading out of the media spotlight. No publicity – no book sales – so what is a dethroned beauty queen to do? Why, threaten to sue someone big so everyone will talk about you, of course!
Carrie Prejean has had her lawyers draw up a lawsuit against the Miss California organization, as well as Keith Lewis and Shanna Moakler with a number of complaints she has about how she was fired as Miss California and things that were done and said about her during and after the firing. The lawsuit is ready to be filed and available to anyone who wants to view the paperwork but it won’t be submitted to the courts until Prejean has signed it.
This isn’t the first time Carrie Prejean has threatened to sue someone connected to her short-lived stint as a beauty queen. Back in June, she threatened to sue Miss California USA executive director, Keith Lewis, for defamation.
In an interview with Billy Bush this morning, he asked her if, or when, she intended to go ahead with the lawsuit. Prejean said:
“No, I mean, hopefully this will all just get taken care of. There’s definitely some things that are false that they’ve said about me and I think definitely the book will – it’s sort of like therapy for me. It’s a way for me to just get out the truth, really. I mean they did slander me, they defamed me. They made me look like I don’t show up to work, like I don’t do my job and that’s not true, Billy. I mean they haven’t proven one appearance that I missed and no one’s challenged them. Not one media outlet has challenged them and said, ‘Prove to me. What appearances has she missed?'”
Based on the quality of Prejean’s statement above, let’s hope she hired a ghost-writer to sort out the thoughts in her new book.
