Perez Hilton takes back apology to Miss California, gets even nastier

Day two of Queen vs. Queen.

He's not sorry after all.

And she feels sorry for him.

The day after celebrity blogger

Perez Hilton
Carrie Prejean

, a nasty name for how she answered his question about same-sex marriage at the Miss USA pageant, he retracted the apology.

"Over the course of the last 24 hours, the more I thought about it, the more, you know what? No. I'm gonna stand by what I said just like she's standing by what she said," Hilton, a pageant judge, told MSNBC's

Norah O'Donnell

Monday.

Later, in a separate interview, Prejean said she felt sorry for Hilton, who stirred up a hornet's nest of controversy by asking Prejean during the live pageant telecast whether same-sex marriage should be legalized.

Prejean said no, and now believes the answer cost her the crown. Prejean came in second.

"I can only say to him that I will be praying for him. I feel sorry for him, I really do," Prejean said. "I think he's angry, I think he's hurt. Everybody is entitled to their own opinion. He asked me specifically what my opinion was on that subject and I gave him an honest answer."

Not only did Hilton retract his apology, he told O'Donnell that he didn't really want to call Prejean a bee-otch in the first place. "I was thinking the c-word and I didn't say it," he said, laughing.

Not cool, so not cool.
