Wow, I bet Shanna Moakler wishes she hadn't quit now.

In a reversal of fortunes for now-former-Miss California USA Carrie Prejean, the beauty queen lost her crown Wednesday. She's been accused by the pageant of skipping out on official appearances. Pageant owner Donald Trump told TMZ that Prejean has been outright mean to Miss USA officials.

"To me she was the sweetest thing. Everyone else -- she treated like s--t.," he told TMZ.

Prejean's official title was previously drawn into question when topless photos of the model appeared on the Internet. After consideration, Trump kept her on, obviously pleased with the publicity generated by his Miss USA runner-up. That's when previous winner Shanna Moakler, a critic of Prejean's anti-gay marriage political agenda, resigned.

But this time, it appears Prejean has gone too far. This comes from TMZ Wednesday:
Sources connected with the pageant tell us even Donald Trump has now had it with Carrie, because she's violating her contract by not getting clearance to do her extracurricular stuff.

We're also told Carrie has been a no-show for appearances she was supposed to make for the pageant organizatio
Miss California runner-up Tami Farrell will replace Prejean.
