Carrie Prejean is in the news again, and for a change, it's not because she made somebody angry. It's because she's getting married! The ex-Miss California, whose anti-gay-marriage stance lost her the Miss USA pageant and galvanized conservative fans, is getting heterosexually hitched to NFL quarterback Kyle Boller this Friday. The square-jawed football player, who was linked to Tara Reid in 2004 has been engaged to Prejean since February. Boller played for the Rams in 2009, but recently switched teams (again, heterosexually) to play with the the Oakland Raiders.
The couple will be wed in San Diego, where they've blocked off rooms at the luxury resort and hotel Grand Del Mar (discount room rate: $295 a night). Interestingly, the Grand Del Mar was boycotted by gay marriage proponents in 2008, after its owner donated $125,000 to support California's Proposition 8 (yet it's also labeled "gay friendly" on dozens of hotel review sites -- maybe only for gay bachelors and single lesbians?). Prejean, 23, and Boller, 29, are both California natives, and will presumably be making a home there, now that Boller is playing for Oakland.
As for the bride, she's been pretty quiet since November 2009. That's when she released her memoir, Still Standing, in which she characterized herself as a Christian role model. It was also when the world found out that she'd made a solo sex tape, and when the lawsuit that stripped her of her Miss USA crown was settled. Back then, we were still hearing her infamous soundbite everywhere: "We live in a land where you can choose same-sex marriage or opposite marriage." And while many citizens still don't have the option of "choosing" same-sex marriage, maybe Prejean is going to actually show us what "opposite marriage" looks like.
