Miss California USA executive director resigns
Shanna Moakler, the executive director Miss California USA, resigned today in the wake of controversy over current title holder Carrie Prejean, who was told by pageant owner Donald Trump she could keep her crown.
More from 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," she continues. "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."
