Was Carrie Prejean Unjustly Enriched? (Nudge Nudge Wink Wink)

You'll undoubtedly recall that, back in May, we mentioned that Miss California USA (aka Donald Trump) might terminate then-Miss California Carrie Prejean for breach of contract.  Prejean was in fact de-crowned, and she sued the pageant organizers for a whole host of things, including discrimination based on her anti-gay marriage stance and violation of her privacy when a representative acknowledged publicly that she had breast implants.  The franchise wasted no time with a countersuit and, according to CNN, one of the claims seeks to recover some $5000 the pageant organizers loaned Prejean for the breast implant surgery - pursuant to an oral agreement between the parties. 

Some stories, even contracts profs can't make up.  This ugly tale of caution is one of them.
