Entertainment Tonight, Wednesday, June 10, 2009, 11:51am (PDT) Entertainment Tonight. ET is first to confirm that Miss California USA Carrie Prejean today lost her title and crown. Read on for details & The Miss California USA Organization, with the blessing of owner Donald Trump, announced on Wednesday that Prejean would lose her crown due to "continued breach of contract issues." "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," Miss California USA Executive Director Keith Lewis said in a statement to ET. "After our press conference in New York we had hoped we would be able to forge a better working relationship. However, since that time it has become abundantly clear that Carrie is unwilling to fulfill her obligations under our contract and work together." "I told Carrie she needed to get back to work and honor her contract with the Miss California USA Organization and I gave her the opportunity to do so," Trump said about the decision. "Unfortunately it just doesn't look like it is going to happen and I offered Keith my full support in making this decision. Carrie is a beautiful young woman and I wish her well as she pursues her other interests." The organization also announced that effective immediately, first runner-up, Tami Farrell will assume the role of Miss California USA.
