Miss NJ - No Skin, No Boozing, So What?

7/9/2007 9:35 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

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.

Foxy Brown – Missing in Plain Sight?


After Foxy Brown was reported "missing" by her lawyer over the weekend and that she'd "disappeared" to London, it seems that she hadn't gone very far after all. PerezHilton.com reported that the rapperista had been "found" in New York, performing at the Urban Music Awards on Saturday night.

Foxy's lawyer had sounded the alarm that she had boarded a flight across the pond and hadn't been heard from and could be "anywhere," including "hibernating" in London. Well, Foxy didn't go very far, and in any case, she was late to get to her hosting gig at the Music Awards.

Does Babwa Vant Ivanka for "View"?


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.

Party Favors: Andrew Lloyd Webber – the Next Simon Cowell? ... Jacko Demands Kiddie Food


Andrew Lloyd Webber says he's been "swamped" by offers to do a US TV show, and that he's going to have a "major announcement" in the next few weeks, reports the London Daily Mail (via MSNBC). Not that we need more spicy-twee Englishmen infesting our airwaves. ... Michael Jackson has been making life for the staff of a hotel in Maryland hellish, ordering chicken fingers and "other types of kids food" at 4:00 AM. But he did call and bless the manager of the Inn at Perry Cabin, reports Page Six.

Personally I think Barbara WAWA is beyond her time, the view as it is today sux and I quit watching when Star was released ( not too much a Star fan but thougth she got a raw deal) Rosie was wrong for the View, she needs to be on a military show, or something less feminine.......At any rate did not have anything pressing so am giving my opinion.

I don't know. I remember Vanessa Williams and what she did and what happened to her, and I remember
the recent scandal of the Miss USA winner in 2007. What an embarrassment that was. And now this,
the embarrassing incident involving Miss New Jersey. Awh, come on, is this just a publicity stunt like
the one Miss USA used? You have to admit that Miss New Jersey is getting a whole lot of press and air
time. The kind of time that could lead to a big career.

In addition, I want to say that these pageants use to have very high standards. Look at some of the
Miss Americas of the past. They made us proud. These young women in these past pageants followed
the rules all the way, and they did so because they wanted the title more than anything. What do
we see now? We see ourselves living in a bubble apparently when the pageant is announced and
women are portrayed as Princesses like Snow White. I think after all the broo ha ha of Vanessa Williams,
Miss USA 2007 and possibly Miss New Jersey.......we'd better ask the pageant officials to burst their
bubble and see the reality of life. Then--cancel any future pageants. The fantasy is over.

My guess is, Miss New Jersey was probably photographed kissing another woman. Although it is sickening to look at, it is legal.

Another Vanessa (Minnillo) was a Miss USA. She was recently photographed in Mexico. And promptly put a stop to the spread of the pics. Wonder if it'll help her stalled career.

Many stories of backstabbing and sabotaging tactics are part of recent pageants. One contestant stated about a Miss USA pageant, that a certain contestant was a favorite to win. Another pageant challenger stepped on this girl's hand, deliberately. That put the favorite out of contention. The girl who did the damage won the Miss USA contest, according to the reporting contestant.. Stories such as that abound in modern pageants..
Another reported that her pageant gown was slashed. Still another said her swimsuit was damaged; so she had to put in an emergency substitute; and won in her group!

Babawawa is used to stabbing people in the back. It's all part of the game to her. Star Jones learned the hard way. Ivanka should know that.

How are chicken fingers classified as "kiddie food"? Everybody eats chicken fingers. I love how people try to vilify everything Michael Jackson does. Brother needs some chicken! Let the man eat for God's sake!
