Another pageant beauty scandal is growing. This time it involves Miss New Jersey Amy Polumbo and sexy photos she had on her Facebook page in the past. The captions on the photos are troubling Polumbo the most according to her attorney.
Miss New Jersey, 22-year-old Amy Polumbo, announced Thursday that someone was trying to blackmail her with old photographs and a demand that she give up her crown by Friday. Her refusal to give in and speculation about the photos made her a star of the moment – at least in the world of tabloid newspapers and Internet gossip blogs.
But by Friday Polumbo’s lawyer, Anthony Caruso, said it was actually captions on the photographs that troubled the beauty queen, not racy images.
Caruso won’t say what the photos show, except to say it’s nothing especially revealing – certainly nothing more revealing than the bikini Polumbo wore during the Miss New Jersey competition. He also declined to reveal what the captions said.
Meanwhile, the Wagner College student didn’t step down. And the photos – and captions – that caused all the commotion didn’t appear to have been made public.
If the photos aren’t that bad then Polumbo should just release them. That way it’s a non-story and the blackmailer has no leverage then. However, I think she is enjoying the fame and having her name in the news (imagine that with a pageant girl) that has come with this story.
