Larry King isn’t known for his hardball interviews.
So his exchange with onetime California beauty queen Carrie Prejean came as something of a surprise.
Prejean threatened to walk off King’s Wednesday night interview after King asked her why she’d settled a lawsuit against the Miss California USA Pageant. Prejean lost her Miss California title after it emerged that she’d posed in racy shots and faced criticism about comments against same sex marriage. She sued the organization, alleging libel and religious discrimination.
Then, this week, it emerged that Prejean had filmed a secret sex tape.
“Why settle since you had a fight to carry on?” King inquired.
Prejean didn’t answer.
King repeated: “You can’t even say why you settled?”
“Larry,” Prejean replied, “it’s completely confidential and you’re being inappropriate.”
Prejean appears to have settled after a lawyer for the organization revealed a home-made sex tape Prejean made when she was 17.
After a minute of back-and-forth exchange, King remarks, “Okay, I, uh… inappropriate King Live continues.”
It gets worse for Prejean. A caller begins a call with, “I’m a gay man and I love pageants,” and Prejean reaches to disconnect her mic.
“Did she hear the question?” King asks.
Prejean retorts, “Yeah, I think you are being extremely inappropriate right now, and I’m about to leave your show.”

Trump campaign dispatches Pence to shore up Mormon support — after harsh criticism from Mitt Romney and Jeff Flake: report
The president's 2020 election campaign continues to play defense in Arizona, a once reliably-Republican state.
"President Donald Trump's reelection campaign is looking to shore up support among a specific population of Arizonans: members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints," the Arizona Republica reported Monday. "Vice President Mike Pence is coming to Mesa Tuesday to help launch a 'Latter-day Saints for Trump' coalition in what appears to be a late-in-the-game play to win over LDS voters, who tend to vote Republican but hold values that clash with some of the president's."
Here’s how Trump created a ‘significant threat’ to his re-election by failing on coronavirus stimulus
Politico on Monday reported on how Donald Trump may have imperiled his 2020 presidential campaign by failing to reach a deal with Congress on the next round of stimulus.
"After a spring and summer bolstered by cash infusions from the federal government of more than $3 trillion, the U.S. economy may have to sink or swim this fall with a relative trickle of support — presenting a significant threat to President Donald Trump’s standing as he heads into a compressed reelection campaign already trailing in the polls," Politico's Ben White reported.
