Video: Anti-gay Miss California threatens to storm off chat show over sex tape
Carrie Prejean, the anti-gay Miss California, tore off her microphone and refused to speak to a gay caller on Larry King’s show last night.
Prejean recently settled a lawsuit with Miss California USA pageant officials when they presented her with her own sex tape.
She had been attempting to sue them for $1 million for disclosing personal information about her, including details of her breast implants. She also alleged they had discriminated against her for being a Christian.
The beauty queen claims she lost the Miss USA pageant because of her views on gay marriage.
King’s interview got off to a good start, when Prejean was happy to announce that Sarah Palin was her hero.
But when the veteran host asked her why she had chosen to settle with pageant officials, she refused to answer, saying it was “completely confidential”.
King pressed on, asking her to confirm the details of the settlement. Visibly embarrassed, she responded: “Larry, you’re being inappropriate. It was a confidential settlement.”
King then brought on a caller, who introduced himself as a “gay man who loves pageants”. Prejean was then seen ripping her microphone off.

The caller attempted to ask Prejean what advice she would give about getting married to any of her gay friends but she refused to answer.
As King repeatedly asked Prejean whether she could hear him, she said: “I think that you are being extremely inappropriate right now and I’m about to leave your show.”
The dethroned beauty queen told NBC’s Today show earlier this week that the tape was “the biggest mistake of my life”.
The 22-year-old claims it was made when she was 17, but an unnamed ex-boyfriend told TMZ she was 20 at the time.
