Shanna Moakler's mad, and she's not taking it anymore!
The former Playmate took to Twitter to share her anger over birds going after her pets in her Calabasas, Calif., backyard.

After calming down a few hours later, the onetime Miss USA expressed her regret over her missing dog, Tweeting that she was "incredibly sad," and thanking her followers for their concern.

As legal battles go, it's sash and burn.
Fallen beauty queen Carrie Prejean sued the Miss California USA pageant and co-executive director Shanna Moakler on Monday alleging religious discrimination, drawing a sharp rebuke from Moakler's camp.
"On Ms. Moakler's behalf, I can say unequivocally that Ms. Prejean's lawsuit is without merit," says Mel Avanzado, Moakler's lawyer.
"More importantly, as everyone who watched or read her public statements is well aware, Ms. Prejean's unfortunate and bigoted statements are responsible for any public humiliation or damages to her reputation that she has claimed to have suffered," Avanzado added. "Ms. Moakler strenuously denies that she did anything wrong and looks forward to proving that in a court of law."

What would Travis Barker and Shanna Moakler be without a little drama?
"We're not together, but we're really good friends," Moakler told PEOPLE about ex-husband Barker while she attended Saturday's White Party, hosted by Diddy and Ashton Kutcher to benefit Malaria No More. "We have a real love for one another, and we always have."
"Travis is leaving for tour, my babies are going with him, so I'm getting all prepared," says Moakler. "We're lucky that Blink  tours are very lavish. We each have our own buses. At the venues, we set up kid rooms so the kids can kind of get out of the buses and start running around. We have a runner to take [them] 'round. They're going to be going to Canada, to see the different parts of the States … so it's pretty exciting."

Shanna Moakler stepped down Wednesday as co-director of the Miss California USA organization, a day after Miss California USA Carrie Prejean was allowed to keep her crown amid a controversy over her topless photos and activism against same-sex marriage.
"I cannot with a clear conscience move forward supporting and promoting the Miss Universe Organization when I no longer believe in it," says Moakler, a former Miss USA, in a statement.
It was a turnaround for Moaker, who on Tuesday offered her support to Prejean, 21, after Donald Trump, co-owner of the Miss Universe organization, allowed her to continue as Miss California USA and Miss USA runner-up.

It took some high-level diplomacy by Donald Trump to make it happen, but now Shanna Moakler offers her conditional support for Miss California USA Carrie Prejean following the controversy over the beauty queen's nude photos and statements against same-sex marriage.
"Thanks to Donald Trump, we were able to have a meeting with Miss Prejean and her family alone for the first time since the pageant," Moakler, the co-executive director of the California pageant, tells PEOPLE. "We were able to sit down and communicate and vent our frustrations. I am confident that she will stay true to the contract. I'm looking forward to returning to L.A. and starting fresh."
After the New York meeting, which also included the other California pageant chair, Keith Lewis, The Donald, who co-owns the Miss Universe Organization, announced Tuesday that Prejean will continue to reign as Miss California USA and Miss USA runner-up despite the spate of bad publicity.

"I just got the phone call you dread," Shanna Moakler tells Extra in her first TV interview since ex-husband Travis Barker's Sept. 20 plane crash.
"I actually thought when the phone rang, that it was Travis saying, 'Oh, we landed in L.A. and I'm coming to you babe,'" she says in the interview scheduled to air Friday night.
Moakler reveals that Barker had a bad feeling about the doomed flight before he boarded.
"He had taken pictures of the plane and sent them to me … He had a feeling that something was about to happen," she says.
Of the six people on board, Travis and friend DJ AM (who described the crash in a PEOPLE exclusive) were the sole survivors.

Shanna Moakler is sticking by her ex-husband, Travis Barker, as he heads back to Los Angeles after being badly burned in a plane crash just over a week ago.
"She is so devoted to him [and] he appreciates it so much," a source close to the couple tells PEOPLE. "She's sticking by him. She is with him. Despite everything that's happened to them, they love each other."
Barker, 32, was released from the Joseph M. Still Burn Center at Doctors Hospital in Augusta, Ga., on Monday and is headed back to Los Angels on a bus. He is "going to another hospital in L.A," says the source. "He wants to be home."
