    At least one Calfornia wildfire will be put out on Monday.

    Shanna Moakler and Keith Lewis, codirectors of the Miss California U.S.A. pageant, are holding a press conference Monday morning to announce the fate of controversial crown holder Carrie Prejean.

    Officials are in talks with the 21-year-old beauty queen's reps to determine whether she should keep the coveted tiara due to possible contract violations stemming from public appearances with same-sex marriage opponents and for failing to disclose sexy underwear ads taken as a teen.

    In what could point to which way they're leaning, Tami Farrell, first runner-up in the Miss California contest, will also attend Monday's press conference.

    On Tuesday, Donald Trump, co-owner of the Miss Universe Organization, will hold a press conference in New York to discuss the scandal. He will reportedly decide if Prejean will be stripped of her title as first runner-up in the 2009 Miss USA pageant, which was held April 19.

    As for those racy pics, Carrie's lawyer has sent a cease-and-desist letter to the website posting the topless photos, according to TMZ.

    In the letter, her lawyer says one of the photos was taken illegally under false pretenses when Prejean was a minor; the other was Photoshopped with the beauty queen's face and someone else's body.
