Gavin Newsom isn’t the only surprise defender of Miss California Carrie Prejean’s statements.
“Maybe some of the things she said were a little awkward, but I think she expressed a feeling that a lot of people have. I feel badly for beauty contestants who are put on the spot like that!” —Cynthia Nixon
“I’ve never heard it expressed that way. She said, ‘In America, you have the choice between same sex marriage and opposite sex marriage,’ like it was a flavor at Baskin-Robbins. You can have rocky road or mint chocolate chip.” —Rosie O’Donnell
