The blackmailed beauty queen who's being terrorized by an anonymous nemesis says the pictures in question don't show her drinking underage, nor any salacious skin, nor anything else that would disgrace her. So, as Matt Lauer asked her on "Today," why not just release the photos and scuttle the blackmailer?
Polumbo didn't know quite what to say to that, and characterized the snaps as "normal college girl" stuff. Meanwhile, her mom told the New York Daily News that rumors that she was boozing before her time were "lies," but Polumbo is scheduled to meet with Miss America officials to discuss what's in the pics.
None of the runners-up have been interviewed by police, they say.

How's this for crazy? A new report says that Ivanka Trump could be filling Rosie O'Donnell's old seat on "The View," but an insider tells Page Six, "It ain't gonna happen." The National Enquirer reported that hiring the busty "hottie with brains" would be a way for Barbara Walters to get back at Paris and the Hiltons for ditching her in favor of Larry King. But Babwa's still not over Ivanka's daddy Donald's calling her a liar during his tussle with Rosie, and so any Trump hire would be far-fetched.
