Fired Miss California Carrie Prejean claims she turned down an offer from Playboy -- and that was one of the reasons she was canned!
The 22-year-old says she was offered $140,000 to pose of the mag, but don't believe it! Insiders tell "Extra" there was never an offer on the table. Prejean was dethroned on Wednesday for reportedly breaching her contract.
New Miss California Tami Farrell took over the crown at 2:30 AM EDT this morning. Tammy tells "Extra" she's happy to take over the title, even though it wasn't what she planned. "I'm going to do my best for her and our state to be a positive role model," she says.
