Carrie Prejean is making the press rounds to make sure the world knows where she stands on her alleged "sex tape."
She's also hoping to promote her new book, Still Standing, amid all the scandal. But of course the first thing on everyone's minds is: What the heck was she doing making a tape in the first place?
Speaking to Meredith Vieira on the TODAY show, the former Miss California said it wasn't a sex tape in the way so many celebrity sex videos are these days.
"You can call it whatever you wanna call it," Prejean said. "But it was me by myself, there was no one else with me. I was not having sex."
She said she was 17 when she made the video, and it was for her then-boyfriend for "private use." But she added that it didn't "justify" her making it in the first place.
"It was the biggest mistake of my life," Prejean, who is now 22, said.
As Meredith pressed her for more information about why the sex tape came out now and what role it may have played in her lawsuit with Miss California pageant organizers, Carrie kept turning the conversation back to the subject of her book.
"The main thing is that there has been a campaign against me to try and silence me for the past seven months for the answer that I gave at the pageant," Prejean said.
When Perez Hilton, who was a judge at the Miss USA pageant, asked if she believed gay marriage should be legal, Carrie responded that marriage should be between a man and a woman.
Do you think Carrie's religious views of marriage are hypocritical given her X-rated past? Chime in below!
