Sometimes, beauty queens don't get fired for topless photos, or speaking out against gay marriage, or their tussles with Perez Hilton, or any of the various tabloid controversies they generate. Sometimes they just get fired for not showing up to work.

At least that seems to be the case with Carrie Prejean, who was canned today, according to TMZ, for being a "no-show" and for "violating her contract by not getting clearance to do her extracurricular stuff." Sounds like somebody was sneaking out of the house without telling dad.

So goodbye, beauty queen Prejean. And hello, Miss Malibu, Tami Farrell, who will be replacing Prejean at car shows and ribbon cuttings across California. The firing has hopefully put an end to the most exhausting beauty pageant controversy, well, ever. Of course, as Vanessa Williams knows, sometimes losing your crown isn't so bad. Sometimes it leads to modest singing careers and celebrity endorsements and a starring role on "Ugly Betty." So chin up, Carrie Prejean: I'm sure "Fox & Friends" will be calling you soon.
