Former Miss USA, Shanna Moakler, has just resigned as co-executive director of the Miss California pageant. The move comes after Donald Trump announced that Miss California, Carrie Prejean, would keep her crown despite the controversy over the semi-nude pictures of her circulating online.
The former beauty queen released a statement to Perez Hilton, saying: ,
"Since the press conference yesterday, 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. I can not 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. 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. I am sorry and hope I have not let any young supporters down but wish them the best of luck in fulfilling their dreams."
