It was about a year ago that Carrie Prejean lost her crown as Miss California USA. The argument has raged over whether it was due to her comments on gay marriage or if it was racy photos of her that surfaced shortly after the controversy began.
Now, it’s the pageant organizers themselves who are taking heat for publicity photos of this year’s contestants – photos that some say are TOO HOT.
The black and white photos show the contestants posing on furniture – including lying on beds – wearing lingerie, open shirts, fishnets and high heels.
Miss Washington is seated sideways on a chair wearing a button down shirt. Miss Oregon is seen kneeling on a bed in black lingerie. Miss Idaho appears to be seated on a bed, wearing a black corset and fishnet stockings.
Officials at the Miss Universe organization, which is the parent of the Miss USA organization, have been inundated by phone calls by people who say the photos are too revealing and risqué. Pageant reps are reportedly defending the photos, calling them “tasteful and very sexy.”
Are the Miss USA photos too racy? I’ll tell ya…I thought Miss Alabama’s photo was very Bridget Bardo-esc.
