For some reason only known to Donald Trump, Carrie Prejean is going to keep her crown as Miss California.
Carrie Prejean, the current Miss California, has been embroiled in more controversies than you can you can shake a stick at as of late. First there was the controversial answer to the question posed by gossip blogger Perez Hilton at the Miss USA pageant, to which you have to say, “Hey, her answer may not be popular, but she’s entitled to her opinion.” It was what came after that which makes you wonder why this woman still has her crown.
I’m not one for following beauty pageants, I find them rather archaic personally, but when a woman has displayed such flagrant disregard for the standards of the pageant, and more specifically the contract she signed, it becomes a matter of business. Seeing that Donald Trump, a man who prides himself on his business acumen, is the one running the show, then you really have to question why he would let a woman consistently violate a binding contract agreement without any repercussions.
Here is a list of things she has done to violate her contract.
Honestly, I couldn’t care less about her or her antics, what irks me is Donald Trump saying today, “Carrie will remain Miss California. We are in the 21st century.” Oh… okay… I guess this translates to, “it’s the 21st century folks, contracts aren’t worth the paper they are written on, so feel free to do as you please.”
This is a man who hosts a “reality” show based around the principles of business, and this would lead one to believe that if a woman who has signed a contract with you has violated, and is continuing to violate, said contract, you fire her. Come on, Trump, we all know you know how to say, “You’re Fired”, it’s your blasted catch phrase for crying out loud!
Whatever, it’s his pageant afterall, and it doesn’t mean a hill of beans to anything that goes on in the rest of the world, but it is fascinating to know that contracts apparently mean nothing to Donald Trump.
