Now, this is some pretty vicious litigation. Miss California USA officials want Carrie Prejean to give back the $5,200 that they say she borrowed to have her breasts augmented last year. Prejean is suing the pageant in a lawsuit that includes a privacy violation related to the disclosure of the augmentation.
The lawyers for the pageant insist that the truth over Prejean’s procedure “ceased being private during the swimsuit competition of the nationally televised Miss USA pageant, in which Ms. Prejean walked the stage in a bikini.”
They are seeking money from any profits from Prejean’s book due out next month, which they claim was written in violation of her pageant contract. They promise to donate the proceeds to charity — presumably to pay for augmentation for the impoverished.
Also notable in the filing is the incorporation of Biblical authority: “[Prejean] attempts to cast herself as a virtuous young woman and the victim in a supposed conspiracy against her. Had she heeded the guidance of the Gospel of John, who admonished only those who are without sin to cast stones in judgment, she might have avoided this legal battle — which will ultimately reveal the hypocrisy of Carrie Prejean.”
