Miss New Jersey, Amy Polumbo, Blackmail Photos
| As you can see from the front pages of a couple of U.S. tabloids shown below Amy Polumbo, the current Miss New Jersey, is big news. There she is with a big smile and wearing a red bikini.|
Why is she news? After all she's just another pretty girl.
It's because Amy Polumbo claims that someone is using photographs she posted on the Internet to try to force her to give up her crown.
"Photos?" you may ask.
Yes photos. 22-year-old Amy said she received copies of between six and 12 of her photos in the mail on June 25 with a letter threatening to make them public unless she gives up her crown to the pageant's first runner-up.
"They must be some hot photos," you may assume.
Appears not. Her attorney, Anthony R. Caruso, would not describe the photos, except to say that they aren't lewd. They are pictures Amy Polumbo posted in a private section of an Internet photo-sharing site so her friends and family could see them.
Okay, if they are not lewd what's the problem? How can anyone blackmail her over photos suitable for friends and family?
Even Amy's aunt, Cathy Capper, reckons that the photos are not at all revealing. She said her niece appeared in less clothing during the Miss New Jersey pageant when she won her title.
If all of this is true, about the photos, it's difficult to understand what all of the fuss is about. Let the guy (or girl) publish the photos if there is nothing to fear. Think of the publicity - ah, publicity ...
