Miss NJ Won't Submit to Snaps Shakedown

7/6/2007 1:37 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The beauty queen from New Jersey who's being blackmailed over a few supposedly racy pictures is refusing to give in to the Internet-trolling slimeball who's trying to get her dethroned.

In a defiant press conference yesterday, Amy Polumbo, who won the Miss New Jersey crown last month, said that she would not "quietly disappear," even after getting a package in the mail with pictures and a demand that she quit by today. Her lawyer, Anthony Caruso, wouldn't say how spicy the shots were, only that they weren't "that bad" and that she's pictured "with friends." Er, like Katie Rees and friends?

Neither Miss America nor Miss New Jersey pageant officials commented on the situation. Polumbo will compete in the Miss America pageant -- if she keeps her state crown.

Sounds like a typical Jersey Girl. Perhaps the pictures are with Antonella Barba?!? Anyway, that Amy Dumbo beauty queen is smokin' hot. I hope the pics surface.

Now that she's drawn nationwide attention to these pictures, everyone wants to see them. C'mon, TMZ, we wanna see 'em!!!!!

I just have to wonder what kind of pictures Miss New Jersey thinks are OK to share with "family and friends", but not the public??? Very odd.

What's with all the dramatic, overly self-important, sex-tape-making sluts lately? It seems to be the latest trend. I hope it ends soon and in 15 years we can all look back on this era and laugh like you would these days watching a cheesy old Paula Abdul video.

THIS IS TERRIBLE, SOME LOW LIFE PERSON TRYING TO GET RICH QUICK, THEY SHOULD GO GET A REAL JOB, AND LEAVE MISS NJ ALONE. SHE IS NOT THE CRIMINAL HERE. FIND OUT WHO IS DOING THIS AND DEAL WITH THEM. PUT THIS ISSUE TO REST AND GET ON WITH TO BETTER ISSUES.

i swear, if i hear of one more bimbo making a sex tape and/or taking scandalous pictures, i'm going to puke. is this all our society has come to? where women think it's "sexy" and "spur of the moment" to strip (nearly) naked and parade around in the front of the camera?

DISGUSTING.

most blatantly fame-whorish and poorly acted publicity stunt of all time!

I know Amy. Really, I do -- we went to high school together. And I know she would never post "racy" pictures of herself on Facebook or MySpace or any of that crap. The news reports are all saying that these pictures are not nudes and that they appear to be doctor by whoever is blackmailing her. Just because a few beauty queens are screwed-up whores doesn't mean that they all have to be, and Amy is not. I know I'm going to get flamed for this but someone had to defend her -- particularly someone who knows her.

what's sadder is that the person who sent the "anonymous email" was probably the first runner up's mother

Just so everyone knows... not all women from New Jersey are dumb, abrasive, tacky sluts who make pornos with every guy they see. Only about 95% are like that. And I can say that because I'm a JERSEY GIRL!!!!! WOOOOOOO!!!!!!! SEASIDE!!!!!!!WILDWOOD!!!!!!

I went to college with Amy. She is a wonderful person wit a lot of talent. We were theater majors together. I have seen all of her facebook pictures and there has never been one more racy than, the next college kid. I really think some people have way too much time on their hands and need to get a life. Amy has integrity and would never take compromising photos. This is probably a pic for one of our MANY theme parties that we theater majors used to throw. I'm sure that it is a silly picture that some evil twit or other contestant has misconstrued.

Amy Polumbo should now how stingy the Miss America Pagent is, but who cares,
nobody waches Miss America any more, rating continually sink, the swim suits cover
the whole body, and you have a little goody two shoes who's record is absolutly spotless,
and yes, you brobably need to be a virgin.



Boeing 787 to roll out on 07/08/07
