Miss California Topless Pic #2 Out, Pageant Runner Up Ready To Take Crown (PHOTO)

A second topless photo of Miss California Carrie Prejean has been released by TheDirty.com, days after Prejean promised the state pageant that there was only one such photo in existence.

In related Miss California news, TMZ reports the gay-marriage opponent's father may be gay. Her parents split in 1988, and the ugly divorce was full of allegations. Read that story here.

Back to the crown drama. On Wednesday Prejean's runner-up Miss Malibu told "Access Hollywood's" Billy Bush she is ready to step in should Prejean lose her crown because of a morality clause in the pageant contract contestants sign that promises they have no nude or semi-nude photos in their past.

The second photo is similar to the first, with Prejean's bare back to the camera, only she's no longer smiling.

The release of the second photo comes out days after Prejean, in an email to the Miss California pageant obtained by TMZ, promised there was only one such photo in existence. "I shouldnt (sic) have taken the photo of me in my underwear. There are no other photos of me. This was the only one I took."

TMZ, however, claims it has seen four such photos, as over the weekend they were offered to the site in a sale.

Meanwhile on Wednesday Miss Malibu Tami Farrell told "Access Hollywood" she is ready, willing and able to take over. "I would be honored to represent the state of California if they need me for my responsibilities as first runner-up. I wouldn't mind stepping into the spotlight."

But she still had nice words for Prejean. "There is a lot of controversy right now. I commend her actually for taking a stance in something she believes in."
