The Miss California Organization revealed that it paid for Miss California Carrie Prejean's breast implants weeks before the Miss USA pageant. She wanted them, you see, and pageant officials "supported that decision," says Shanna Moakler, co-executive-director of the organization. “Breast implants in pageants is not a rarity. It’s definitely not taboo. It’s very common. Breast implants today among young women today [sic] is very common. I don’t personally have them, but you know — they are.” They're also clearly thought necessary to get ahead in Pageant Land — one of the many positive messages these things send to young women everywhere.
