Latest ‘Carrie Prejean Nude’ News Update

BUMPED & UPDATED: TMZ has new topless photos of Carrie Prejean and this time, her back is not turned.

According to TMZ these photos were taken last year, when she was 20. Click on the photo at right to see more. (Thanks to John Hawkins for the Twitter tip.)

Fox News reports:

Donald Trump told FOX News’ Great Van Susteren Monday night that he had to review some additional materials before he made his decision regarding the fate of Miss California Carrie Prejean on Tuesday.
The topless photos of Prejean released by TMZ Tuesday morning may be the materials in question. The photos show Prejean, 21, wearing an open top and underwear on a beach.

“Review some additional materials.” Heh.

There’s a 100-plus-comment headline thread at Hot Air, and I like the title of Rancho’s post: “Sexy Pro-Marriage Crusade Even Sexier!” Uh . . . “rebranding,” anyone?

Dan Collins links because “we’re not that kind of blog.”

UPDATE: Donald Douglas is “that kind of blog,” as is Jammie Wearing Fool, and Memeorandum is that kind of aggregator.

UPDATE II: Trump trumps!

The real estate mogul and co-owner of the Miss USA organization announced Tuesday that the scandalized beauty queen, who spoke out against “opposite marriage” at the 2009 Miss USA pageant, igniting a fire storm of scrutiny about her stance on gay marriage and her modeling career, will keep her crown.
“[Prejean] gave a very, very honest answer when asked a very tough answer at a recent pageant. It’s the same answer that the President of the United States gave. It’s the same answer that many people gave,” Trump said. “If her beauty wasn’t so great, nobody really would’ve cared.”

Attaboy, Donald! Imagine that: A guy who thinks a beauty contest ought to be about . . . beauty. Remember: Rosie O’Donnell hates The Donald, and now imagine how she’ll go off on him!

UPDATE III: As if further proof was needed that Allah hates me, huh? I mean, dude, I own the “Carrie Prejean Nude” Google-bomb. Well never mind, here’s the video of Trump’s announcement:

And video of Carrie Prejean’s statement:

UPDATE IV: Moe Lane at Red State:

Speaking as somebody who is actually for same-sex marriage: has my side mucked things up enough, or do we want to really go for the gusto and alienate still more people? She’s not getting tossed, her detractors are not going to get a social conservative crusade declared against her (mostly because the social conservatives that they think that they were aiming at don’t actually, you know, exist), and now we get to be reminded that the current President is prepared to do anything for same-sex marriage except actually stand up for it. Let’s quit while we’re behind, OK?

Moe, I love you man! In that kind of brotherly way that two totally hetero guys love each other, of course.

UPDATE V: BTW, based on this latest pictorial evidence, I still say I liked her better before the boob job. Nothing wrong with a nice natural A-cup.

Meanwhile, we’re linked by The Blogprof and by DaTechguy, who has a good roundup of reaction. Strangely, no linky-love from Professor Jacobson yet, and at Red State, Josh Painter says:

It’s a rare lost battle for the Left in the culture wars, and leftists aren’t good losers. Come to think of it, they act the same crappy way when they win, too.

PREVIOUSLY (5/11): Despite the Instalanche-like surge of traffic I get every time she makes news, I’m getting bored with Carrie Prejean. However, as the Official Carrie Prejean Nude Google-Bomb Headquarters of the Right-Wing Blogosphere, I feel obliged to report the latest:

For the time being — today, at least — Carrie Prejean continues to be the official Miss California USA.
At a press conference in Beverly Hills, state pageant officials criticized the 21-year-old San Diego native for her public opposition to same-sex marriage and for not revealing that she had posed semi-nude in her underwear. Both violate pageant rules.
But the officials said they did not have the power to strip Prejean of her crown. That action falls to Donald Trump, pageant owner. He has scheduled a news conference for tomorrow on whether she will keep or lose her title.
Until then, the state pageant co-directors, Keith Lewis and Shanna Moakler, have appointed first runner-up Tami Farrell as “our official Beauty of California ambassador.”

Well, isn’t that special? It’s up to The Donald to say, “You’re fired!” And Miss December 2001 gets to pick an interim “ambassador.”

Can’t we get back to “DijonGate” or “CutieGate“? How about “MeghanGate“?
