Miss California USA Carrie Prejean was stripped of her title yesterday. However, there seems to be some confusion as to exactly why she was fired...

According to Miss California USA Executive Director Keith Lewis, she was fired "based solely on contract violations including Ms. Prejean's unwillingness to make appearances on behalf of the Miss California USA Organization."

But Prejean says it's because she opposes same sex marriage and said so during the pageant in April. After hearing that she had been fired, she told Access Hollywood: "None of this would be happening right now if I just said, 'Yeah, gays should get married. You're right, Perez Hilton.'" She's also claiming that pageant officials tried to get her to pose for Playboy and star on I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here.

Ugh. What a mess. I feel like this storm has been brewing for a while, don't you?
