Shanna Moakler, who became the target of Carrie Prejean’s wrath yesterday when the former Miss California sued Moakler among others, is firing back. Prejean is suing Moakler and others associated with Miss California USA for religious discrimination. Moakler thinks Carrie is…well, she thinks she’s an idiot.
“On Ms. Moakler’s behalf, I can say unequivocally that Ms. Prejean’s lawsuit is without merit,” said Shanna Moakler’s laywer, Mel Avanzado. Go on, Mr. Avanzado.
“More importantly, as everyone who watched or read her public statements is well aware, Ms. Prejean’s unfortunate and bigoted statements are responsible for any public humiliation or damages to her reputation that she has claimed to have suffered. Ms. Moakler strenuously denies that she did anything wrong and looks forward to proving that in a court of law.”
This is a story that is sure to go on for awhile. I’ll keep my opinions to myself but I can candidly say that I’m looking forward to much for back-and-forth between these two. Hopefully The Donald jumps into this fight.
Our friends over at Hollyscoop.com report thatStephanie Meyer, the writer of the Twilightseries, is being sued by a former college friend from Brigham Young University. Stephanie is being sued for plagiarism of the Twilight series!
The person who is suing Stephanie is her former college buddy, Heidi Stanton. Heidi filed a lawsuit against Stephanie in Utah last Tuesday, April 14th. Heidi states in the papers, “Quite frankly, I was shocked when I began watching the movie [Twilight] with my husband last week. I immediately told him that she got that idea from me! I wrote a fictional short story with the same ideas when we were in college together.”
But Stephanie says that the Twilight series ‘came to her in a dream back in 2003.’ She completed Twilight three months later.
Hollyscoop.com also sadly reports that “Production of New Moon has since been “put on hold” until the case is resolved.” It’s scheduled for release in November 20, 2009.
