Pageant woes drag on

Just when you thought you had heard the last of the Miss California drama comes word that the new beauty queen - Tami Farrell - like the person she just replaced, the fired Carrie Prejean - is also against gay marriage, says TVWeek.com, citing a news report from advocate.com.

In a television interview, Miss Farrell said she is not a supporter of marriage equality, but “I don’t think I have the right or anybody has the right to tell somebody who they can or can’t love.”

Meanwhile, Donald Trump’s Miss USA pageant and K2 Productions have threatened to sue Miss Prejean if she continues her “churlish insolent misbehavior” by making “defamatory” remarks about the pageant, TMZ reports.

Among other charges, the pageant claims that Miss Prejean “turned down 39 pageant appearances since May 12,” TVWeek said.

‘Bruno’ bares all

Sacha Baron Cohen has stripped down as his naked alter ego - the flamboyantly gay Austrian fashionista Bruno - for the July cover of GQ magazine.

He sports a tanned glow and a shaggy head of highlighted hair, and is artfully posed, Associated Press reports.

The actor-comedian’s 2006 movie, “Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan,” was a surprise box-office hit.

His new film, “Bruno,” is scheduled for release July 10.

Fox: ‘I’m not Jolie’

Most stars would be happy to be compared to Angelina Jolie.

Megan Fox isn’t one of them.

“It’s a lack of creativity on the media’s part,” says Denverpost.com, quoting the “Transformers” star from her interview in the latest issue of Entertainment Weekly. “Because I have tattoos and dark hair and I was in an action movie? That’s as far as the similarities extend.”

Adds Miss Fox, 23: “I’m not the next anyone.”
