Donald Trump won’t have Shanna Moakler to kick around any more. The former Miss USA has resigned as executive director of Miss California USA after the pageant owner ignored her claim that current Miss Cali Carrie Prejean violated her contract.

Trump, ignoring the uproar over her topless photos and anti-gay marriage activism, decided to let Prejean keep her title, saying the pictures were “not a big deal” and praising for her stoking a political debate. Moakler, though diplomatic at Tuesday’s press conference, was apparently not pleased. “I cannot with a clear conscience move forward supporting and promoting the Miss Universe Organization when I no longer believe in it,” she said in a statement.

“Our issue was never about her opinions about same-sex marriage or the pictures,” Moakler said at the conference. “Our issue was with her complying with our agreement. When you sign the contract, we ask you to show us everything you are being offered. That wasn’t happening.”
