The Miss California USA pageant plans to reveal this afternoon if they will allow Carrie Prejean to keep her crown after allegations the 21-year-old San Diegan "violated her contract by making public appearances with groups opposed to same-sex marriage," according to cbs2. The blonde beauty also came under fire for remarks made as part of the Miss USA pageant regarding her beliefs about same-sex marriage, which incurred the post-pageant wrath of judge Perez Hilton. Prejean's crown was further tarnished when nude photos of her as a teenager became public.
