Shanna Moakler quits as Miss California director

Tbd-shannamoakler051409 All this nonsense with Miss California Carrie Prejean has claimed another victim -- Miss California USA Executive Director Shanna Moakler. Could it be she finally has standards now?

"Since the press conference (Tuesday), I had a chance to think about what has taken place, and I feel that at this time it is in my best interest to resign from the Miss California USA organization," Moakler tells Us magazine. "I cannot with a clear conscious move forward supporting and promoting the Miss Universe Organization when I no longer believe in it, or the contracts I signed committing myself as a youth."

Wait, isn't this the woman who helped decide that Prejean should get breast implants in order to help her compete in the Miss USA pageant? We think it is ...

"I want to be a role model for young woman with high hopes of pageantry, but now feel it more important to be a role model for my children," Moakler says. "I am sorry and hope I have not let any young supporters down but wish them the best of luck in fulfilling their dreams."

So was it the gay marriage thing or the topless photos? There's also the possibility that Donald Trump told her she was fired, but good luck getting anyone to confirm that.
