Trump ousts Prejean as Miss California

June 10, 2009 1:16:10 PM PDT
It's official: Controversial Miss California Carrie Prejean has heard the words "you're fired" from pageant boss Donald Trump. Trump issued a statement Wednesday saying he sacked Prejean for failing to honor her commitments as Miss California USA.

Pageant officials say Tami Farrell, the first runner-up to Prejean in the Miss California USA competition, will take over those responsibilities.

Prejean created controversy during the Miss USA competition, where she was first runner-up, when she answered a judge's question about gay marriage by saying marriage should be reserved for men and women.
