Reading Rainbow: Crown-less Miss California USA Gets a Book Deal
In a move perhaps aimed to articulate her triumph over great adversity, de-throned Miss California USA Carrie Prejean has just signed a book deal to tell "her side of the story," with "conservative book house Regnery Publishing," KTLA is reporting.Prejean will discuss "what happened behind the scenes at the pageant and why she answered the question posed to her by Perez Hilton the way she did," and hopefully give insight to her subsequent firing by The Donald in the tome, to be titled Still Standing. No word yet on whether the pretty scribe will touch on the hot topics of the nude photos of her that surfaced or why Trump went from lauding her with pride to declaring she "treated people like shit." The book is due out in November 2009, giving you plenty of time to pick up a copy for the loved ones on your holiday shopping list (or for the office White Elephant).
Although she was stripped of her title and became easy prey for the gossip columns following her pageant win, Prejean should fit in nicely among the pantheon of Regnery's authors, who are behind the publisher's "hard-hitting, clear-thinking books."
