Prejean said the photos -- taken when she was 17 and aspiring to be a Victoria's Secret model -- were being used in a "vicious and mean-spirited" effort to silence her for "defending traditional marriage. The year-old Miss USA contestant has been the center of controversy since she declared her opposition to same-sex marriage in a response to a question on the pageant stage last month. Her fate was being discussed in "closed-door meetings" Tuesday among California pageant officials, lawyers and representatives of Donald Trump, who owns the international competition, said Miss California USA spokesman Roger Neal. The spokesman for Miss California USA provided CNN with a copy of the pageant contract Prejean signed last year agreeing that the discovery of semi-nude photos could mean disqualification. One photo published Monday on a Web site -- The Dirty -- showed barely more skin than the bikini Prejean wore in the pageant's swimsuit competition. While she appears topless, she was turned away from the camera with her arm covering most of her breast.

More sexy videos and a collection of nude photos have emerged featuring the "biblically correct" ex- Miss California Carrie Prejean , RadarOnline. Prejean acknowledged last week the existence of a video that featured the spurned beauty queen alone on-tape in footage she said was shot for her then-boyfriend, whom she "loved and cared about. Prejean called the tape the "biggest mistake" of her life on national television -- but according to RadarOnline , it isn't the only time the controversial diva has crossed into so-called sex-tape territory. There are seven more tapes featuring solo Prejean performances, according to the mag's investigation, as well as 30 nude photos that show Prejean either topless or completely naked standing in front of a mirror. The ex-beauty queen, who shot to national fame this spring when she publicly denounced gay marraige in the interview portion of the Miss USA pageant, was stripped of her Miss California crown in June. She sued the pageant after she was fired, citing "religious discrimination," but the pageant counter-sued, alleging Prejean owed the organization for advances paid for her breast implants.

A racy photo of Prejean wearing only pink panties was posted on a gossip blog on Monday. She says the photos, which were taken of her as a teenager, had been released "surreptitiously to a tabloid Web site that openly mocks me for my Christian faith. In the statement, Prejean also says the attacks on her and others who "speak in defense of traditional marriage" are intolerant and offensive.
The directors of the Miss California USA pageant are currently looking into whether Prejean violated the page contract all contestants are required to sign before the November state contest. The document prohibits whoever holds the title of Miss California from making personal appearances, granting interviews or making commercials without permission from pageant officials and gives the pageant's directors the right to revoke her crown for breaching any of the document's provisions. Since being chosen runner-up at the Miss USA pageant, Prejean has made televised appearances at her San Diego church and on behalf of the National Organization for Marriage, a group that is opposed to same-sex marriage. Last week when Prejean was in Washington to announce her support for the new ad, Keith Lewis, co-director of the California contest, expressed concern to The Associated Press. A racy photo of Prejean wearing only pink panties was posted on gossip blog TheDirty.
