Make that a beautiful female conservative celebrity. So, when a California beauty queen had the audacity — the nerve — to stand up for traditional marriage in front of a national televised audience, well then, the liberal media went crazy. They called her every vile name in the book — while feminists around the country were oddly silent. But through it all, Carrie Prejean, former Miss California, maintained her composure, courage, faith—and stood her ground.
Not many year-old women find themselves thrust into the national spotlight.
Fewer still are willing to stand up for what they believe, even when it costs them a national title and subjects them to vicious personal attacks. In her new book, Still Standing , Carrie gives readers the inside story, and the clear message that conservative women are here to stay.
Carrie has a message for Hollywood and the mainstream media — but she also has a message for young women everywhere. Carrie Prejean has already been a media sensation. Get A Copy. Hardcover , pages.

I'll wait for the video s. I'm not sure what to rate this book, because I didn't take it seriously and it was pretty much what I expected. If you're wondering what to think of Carrie Prejean and this book, let me give you a quote: "There are few women I respect more than Sarah Palin[.
If you don't respect Sarah Palin, this might still be the book for you. I'm not sure why; last I checked, she didn't have a sex tape. Maybe she's bffs with Shanna Moakler? This role model idea is unfortunate, because Carrie is none too bright, spouting such ideas as: if men and women aren't brought together in marriage, children won't have parents; a former mayor of that den of iniquity, San Francisco, attempted to be the pope by "forcing" Catholic Charities to give benefits to domestic partnerships; and the best one, on the rumor that her mother was a lesbian: "by far, one of the most humorous attacks, considering my mother is one of the most womanly women I know.
In fact, all of them are. Because they're women. In the end, whatever you do, get this at the library. Nov 20, Samantha rated it did not like it. This is a very opinionated book by a very conservative "woman". Although I am fairly liberal, I am open to reading opposing views. However, this reads similar to that of a teenage tantrum. The writing level alone is borderline insulting, maybe 5th grade reading level?
She is offended and violated by the names she has been called because of her beliefs, BUT turns around and does it to others in the book? I'm working on finishing the last thirty pages, but it's very difficult. Let's just say the c This is a very opinionated book by a very conservative "woman". Let's just say the content could have been covered in thirty pages, not I do believe in giving credit where it is due Good for this young girl to stand by her beliefs, that demonstrates grit.
IMO this is the story of a girl with no worldly experience demonstrating judgement on others, offended though when she herself is judged. Aug 08, James Laginess rated it really liked it. In fact after reading, I truly believe Carrie exemplifies a person with unique character and is exactly what I imagine a real woman to be. The only unfortunate aspect of this story which I now find myself consider I personally despise liberals and found this to be a Very Good book about Carrie Prejeans ordeal as Miss California The only unfortunate aspect of this story which I now find myself considering, is how Evangelical Christians possibly exploited her too but in a different way then the Miss America Pageant Sep 28, Laura rated it liked it.
It was interesting to read Carrie's side of the story, especially because I dind't really follow the story in the media, I only knew enought that she had her crown taken away and she had to answer a question about marriage. The book was to be expected in that it was mostly Carrie telling her side of the story, defending herself, and coming off as she did nothing wrong.
Prejean then continued, "It was bad judgment and it's embarrassing and it's humiliating to be talking about this now on national TV.source link

We only want to know one thing: Was the "all-by-myself" sex consensual? Let's hope it wasn't, because we're pretty sure God frowns on that sort of thing. Jennifer Lopez remember her? The good news for Fergie is that the stripper in question is less attractive than she is. The bad news is, that's not good news, is it?
Musician and former Jennifer Aniston boy-toy John Mayer actually twatted something almost amusing today! Upon hearing the news that furious Britney Spears fans stormed out of her Australian concert because she wasn't actually singing, Mayer twatted, "If you're shocked that Britney was lip-synching at her concert and want your money back, life may continue to be hard for you. Nice job, John! Perhaps you should quit the music business, and become one of those "one catch phrase" comedians like Jeff "You might be a redneck if Or, maybe just quit the music business.
We're going to twatter that. After King asked her for the reason behind her recent out-of-court settlement with the Miss California Organization, Prejean pitched a half-assed hissy fit , calling his questions inappropriate, and then whipped off her mic when a caller identified himself as a "gay pageant lover. Didn't stomp off in a huff, just But hold, please! Things get even more delicious Previously, Prejean claimed she was a stupid, gullible year-old—but according to the boyfriend, she was in fact a stupid, gullible year-old. Obviously, there's only one way to ascertain her true age: Watch the tape, and count the rings around her vaheena.
Unsurprisingly, Hubby Kip has already volunteered. OMG, you people! Whether real or imagined!
