Miss California: Sponsors urged apology for comments

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Miss California Carrie Prejean, who became the bombshell of the Miss USA pageant in Las Vegas last week by saying gay couples should not be allowed to marry, said today that her state sponsors urged her to apologize afterward but she rejected the advice.

Prejean, 21, said officials from the Miss California USA pageant were worried that her comments would cost their contest financial backing and tried to prepare her for a string of post-pageant media interviews by discouraging her from discussing her religious beliefs.
