Shanna Moakler, I never thought I'd say this but I think I'm falling in love with you!

This whole Miss California USA debacle has really been grinding my gears lately, but not anymore.

I love and honor thee

I love and honor thee


Shanna Moakler, wife of Travis Barker and former Miss USA winner herself, has stepped down from her position of Miss USA co-executive director for the following reasons:

“Since the press conference yesterday, I had a chance to think about what has taken place, and I feel that at this time it is in my best interest to resign from the Miss California USA organization,” Moakler said in a statement given to CNN Wednesday.

While she did not directly refer to Trump’s decision to keep Prejean, her statement did suggest she believed it changed what the pageant stood for.

“I cannot with a clear conscience move forward supporting and promoting the Miss Universe Organization when I no longer believe in it, or the contracts I signed committing myself as a youth,” Moakler said.

“I want to be a role model for young women with high hopes of pageantry, but now feel it more important to be a role model for my children. I am sorry and hope I have not let any young supporters down but wish them the best of luck in fulfilling their dreams,” she said.

Not that she’s that much of a step up from Perez Hilton, but this may actually force Donald Trump to re-evaluate the image of this useless pageant. Topless photos, discrimination, and cocaine addictions do not a role model make.

    Good for her! It’s one thing to stand behind someone to give them the benefit of the doubt or a second chance, it’s a completely different thing to stand behind someone just because their stupid controversy put your already useless and archaic competition in the spotlight for 15 minutes.
