Miss California Carrie Prejean's mom was having lesbian love affair

Tbd-carrieprejean052109 Miss California Carrie Prejean, for good or ill, stirred up a hornet's nest by saying she didn't believe gays should be able to get married; that much we know. Want to know the fun part? Her mom, Francine Coppola, was apparently having an affair the whole time -- with another woman!

What's even better is, apparently Carrie's statement is what broke them up! Oh snap, you can't make this stuff up. Can you?

"Yes, Francine and I dated," a sales rep named Valerie Vetrano told Star. So we've got that confirmation. Where's the speculation?

"Francine explained how she was a Christian and that her loved ones would never accept her if she were gay," a friend tells the glossy. Coppola even allegedly told Vetrano “Carrie would never believe it” if Valerie spilled the beans.

This isn't the first time allegations of gayness have come up. It looks like when Francine divorced Carrie's dad, William Prejean, in 1996, both sides accused the other of playing for the other team.

And not to pile too much on Carrie in one day, but pageant director Shanna Moakler has finally let loose on why she quit the day after Donald Trump let Prejean keep her crown.

"She was up there talking, and I just realized ... she was -- in Carrie fashion -- not taking responsibility, pointing fingers at everyone else, and then Mr. Trump went up and spoke and I really thought that he was going to say, 'From here on out, Carrie has to comply with her contract,' or something along those lines," Moakler tells Us. "It was just more like another big puff piece on Carrrie Prejean and why she is not responsible for breaching her contract."

Boy, Prejean is turning into an object lesson on the dangers of seeking fame, isn't she?
