Remember Carrie Prejean who spoke up for traditional marriage and was punished unmercifully by pageant judge Perez Hilton and the media?

And, remember that she was later fired because of contractual issues?

Well, Carrie Prejean says NYET and is suing Miss California USA officials.

Carrie Prejean’s attorney, Charles S. LiMandri announced today that the former Miss California USA is filing a complaint in the Superior Court of California against Miss California USA officials Keith Lewis and Shanna Moakler, and publicist Roger Neal.  The complaint cites damages to Miss Prejean including libel, public disclosure of private facts, religious discrimination, intentional infliction of emotional distress, and negligent infliction of emotional distress. 

Miss Prejean was fired from her role as Miss California USA in June of this year, following several months of controversy over her answer at the Miss USA pageant regarding same-sex marriage. Lewis claimed Miss Prejean’s termination was due to a violation of contract.  Miss Prejean’s complaint will refute that allegation, and demonstrate that both the chronology and factual evidence clearly show she lived up to all her contractual obligations, but was fired, harassed and publicly attacked solely due to her religious beliefs.

After Carrie receives that fat settlement check from the Trump folks and NBC, watch for her to get a gig at Fox News.

Bet the house on it.
