Miss California USA Carrie Prejean, who stirred up trouble for herself when she said gays shouldn’t be allowed to marry, got two dreaded words from pageant poobah Donald Trump on Wednesday: “You’re fired.”

Trump and other pageant leaders said Prejean was being sacked not because of the remarks but because she hadn’t been holding up her end of the agreement she signed when she entered the pageant.

“This was a decision based solely on contract violations, including Ms. Prejean’s unwillingness to make appearances on behalf of the Miss California USA organization,” the California pageant’s executive director, Keith Lewis, said in a statement.

“Carrie is a beautiful young woman and I wish her well as she pursues her other interests,” Trump said.

“My faith has been restored in the Miss Universe Organization and with Donald Trump,” Moakler said in a statement after Wednesday’s announcement. She didn’t say whether she planned to return to the organization.
