Didn’t Donald Trump clear Carrie Prejean of any wrongdoing last month? No matter, she’s still a goner. Trump announced this afternoon he was firing Prejean as Miss California — but not because of her moral ineptitude, but because she, uh, violated the terms of their agreement?
“This was a business decision, based solely on contract violations,” says K2 Productions (which produces Miss California USA) executive director Keith Lewis in documents about the termination. “After our press conference in New York we had hoped we would be able to forge a better working relationship. However, since that time it has become abundantly clear that Carrie has no desire to fulfill her obligations under our contract and work together.”
First runner-up Tami Farrell will assume the Miss California crown, though it’s still unclear what, exactly, Prejean did or didn’t do to get fired. (UPDATE: TMZ reports she’s been a no-show for appearances, among other things.)
And here we thought she was fulfilling her job description of generating press for Trump.
