In the middle of her interview on Larry King Live Tuesday night, Carrie Prejean threatened to walk off the show.


Larry King asked the dethroned beauty queen about the reasons behind her settlement with the Miss California USA pageant, which she found "completely inappropriate."

King asked why she agreed to strike a deal with the pageant and drop her claims of libel, slander and religious discrimination.

"Why settle when you had a fight to carry on?" he asked. "You can't even say why you settled?"

Prejean -- who, according to reports, had settled the lawsuit only after the pageant's attorney revealed the solo sex tape she made when she was 17 years old -- refused to answer.

"Larry, it's completely confidential and you're being inappropriate."

Their argument goes on for a full minute before King gives up and goes to a caller.

"Okay, inappropriate King Live continues," he said.

But before the caller finishes his question, Prejean talks to someone off camera, mouthing "I'm going to leave," and disconnects her mic.

"I think you are being extremely inappropriate right now, and I'm about to leave your show."
