TMZ made jaws drop and tongues wag yesterday by announcing they’d seen a sex tape that allegedly helped wrap up negotiations between the Miss California pageant and its former champion Carrie Prejean, who was asked to pay them back for her boob job. In a surprising bit of prudence, the site declared that the tape was “too racy” to share (“Let’s just say, Carrie has a promising solo career”). Oh, now we’re classy, guys.
While acknowledging that the pageant is paying $100,000 to Prejean’s legal team (allegedly a fraction of the money she owes them), a source for the Chicago Sun-Times says the sex tape allegations have “been wildly exaggerated and [were] not a factor in the final financial settlement.” Between porn peddlers and angry gay rights activists, it’s hard to imagine such a shameful artifact could stay hidden.
