Official: Pageant Paid for Miss California’s Boob Job

Pageant officials confirmed they paid for controversial Miss California Carrie Prejean to have breast implants.

“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 Friday morning.

“We want to put her in the best possible confidence in order to present herself in the best possible light on a national stage,” he continued.

Prejean came under fire after voicing her opposition to gay nuptials. She’s currently working with the National Organization for Marriage to “protect traditional marriage.”

Lewis goes on: “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,” he says. “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. But…”

Lewis admits that Prejean — who lost to Kristen Dalton — had a better chance of winning by being “more proportioned” during the swimsuit competition.

I wish for the day when women didn’t feel the need to put plastic bags inside of their bodies!! Work with what you’ve got, most men don’t like big round hard fake tits anyway!

She’s hot enough for porn now – though she needs to figure out how to shut up…

If she thinks gay people aren’t born the way they are and they shouldn’t have the right to get married then…

She wasn’t born with naturally big breasts and she shouldn’t have the right to alter them to win a competition.

Of course he’s not interested in what her breasts look like, he’s gay for crying out loud. The only people interested in pageants at all are women (for the competition) and gay men (for the cloths and makeup).
