LOS ANGELES (CBS/AP) Hey Carrie Prejean, "Give us your boob money back!"

That seems to be what California pageant organizers are saying to dethroned beauty queen Carrie Prejean, who went under the knife within the last year to boost her "assets."

The anti-gay marriage advocate still owes organizer "K2 Productions" $5,200, it's alleged in the group's new lawsuit, for the breast implants that helped make her the stuff of guy's fantasies.

Prejean requested the surgery, according to the suit, "to be more competitive" at the 2009 Miss USA pageant, and agreed to repay the loan that "K2 Productions" fronted.

"She attempts to cast herself as a virtuous young woman and the victim in a supposed conspiracy against her," the complaint states.

"Had she heeded the guidance of the Gospel of John, who admonished only those who are without sin to cast stones in judgment, she might have avoided this legal battle," the suit states.

"We are saddened by the necessity to file a counterclaim today against Carrie Prejean," pageant co-director Keith Lewis said in a statement Monday.

"We are continuing to prepare for our upcoming telecast of the Miss California USA pageant on November 22, but the integrity of the Miss California USA organization and the values it represents requires us to respond and present the truth. Our claim is not about financial reward, and all profits awarded will be donated to a charity that promotes the values of our organization."

The damsel in distress was booted from the telecast in June of this year for "contract violations" and missing several scheduled appearances.

Her attorney, Chuck LiMandri, said that wasn't true.

Prejean says that she was stripped of her Miss California crown for opposing gay marriage.

She sued for libel, slander and religious discrimination, accusing pageant organizers of telling her to stop mentioning God even before her controversial remarks against same-sex marriage.
