In a press conference earlier this morning, Miss USA overlord, Donald Trump announced that Carrie Prejean will get to keep her Miss California crown.

“We’ve really studied these photos,” he said. “We’ve made a determination that everything we’ve seen to date that she’s done—some were very beautiful, some were risqué—the pictures taken were acceptable, were fine, and in some cases were lovely pictures.” He also added that part of the reason this issue had become so heated was because “Carrie is totally beautiful.”

The announcement comes on the heels of yesterdays Miss USA press conference, where pageant executives Shanna Moakler and Keith Lewis explained that it was not Prejean’s nude photos that were the issue, but the fact that she did not disclose them before the pageant.

The beauty queen made waves when she stated on the air during the pageant that she was against gay marriage, and later campaigned for the anti-gay marriage organization, National Organization For Marriage.
