Carrie Prejean silences herself on 'Larry King Live'

carrieprejean_larrykinglive_290.jpgFormer beauty pageant winner Carrie Prejean really needs to learn how to make an exit. Sure, taking off her microphone mid-interview was a good tantrum trick, but come on, Carrie, go all the way! (Not on camera; you've done that plenty.)

King brought up Prejean's recent decision to drop a $1 million suit against Miss California USA pageant officials, who stripped Prejean of her title after nude photos surfaced online. According to gossip site TMZ, that's because pageant officials revealed they knew about even more dirty laundry: a sex tape the former beauty queen made while a teenager.

When King asked Prejean why she dropped the lawsuit, she cited confidentiality; when he pressed, she called him "inappropriate." Interestingly, she stayed long enough for him to concede and open the phone lines before removing her mike... though Prejean then stayed in the studio, on camera, without actually leaving.

While Prejean has acknowledged the sex tape's existence (though insists it's not really a sex tape because she's the only, erm, performer) and has discussed it on other talk shows, she has not directly linked it to her failed lawsuit.
