Stripped Miss California Carrie Prejean inks book deal

If you wished you never heard another word about Carrie Prejean -- get ready for several thousand: The former Miss California who was stripped of her title last month has a book deal.

Carrie Prejean, whose controversial response during the Miss USA pageant brought her national attention, is set to publish a memoir called "Still Standing," reported Access Hollywood.

Conservative book house Regnery Publishing said Monday that it will release the book. The book's title leaves little to the imagination, though it is possible she will settle the many bar bets on what the future holds for the former Vista resident who ended up representing for La Jolla when she went to the state competition.

Prejean has said that she believes her crown was taken because of her stance opposing gay marriage. California pageant executive director Keith Lewis, however, said that Prejean was skipping Miss California USA events while speaking out against gay marriage at unsanctioned appearances.

Prejean was replaced by the Miss California pageant's first runner-up, Tami Farrell. Farrell has also said she believes marriage should be between a man and a woman. There's no word on whether she'll get a book deal, too.
