Miss New Jersey Exposes Blackmail Pics

7/12/2007 4:54 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Miss New Jersey revealed some of those supposedly salacious blackmail photos this morning, and while they're a little embarrassing, one thing's for sure -- she's no Katie Rees!

Amy Polumbo showed the country some of the most "revealing" pics on the "Today" show, and while one shows her boyfriend chomping on her (clothed) breast and another finds her (fully clothed) legs spread wide in a limo, the rest of them (that were released) were decidedly PG. She decided to make the pics public in advance of a meeting today with New Jersey pageant officials, who will determine the fate of her crown.

Meanwhile, three snaps that the New York Daily News "turned up" of Polumbo partying at Disneyland turned out not to be Amy, she told Matt Lauer. They're actually of a "good friend," said the beauty queen.

Update: Pageant officials have just announced that Amy Polumbo will not be stripped of her crown.

WTF? None of these girls are saints or vestal virgins, why do we think they are? They are desperate for attention and have been doing the pagents for several years. They are like show dogs. They have routines and schedules that they are locked into, they are watched closely and in a sense have no life. The pressure to be perfect and competition is massive and when it comes out that they have had sex or worse, liquor, then all hell breaks loose. Who cares? The fact that the antics of Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan and Britney Spears make this girl look like a nun. If we say it's okay for celebrities to act like drunken whores on a daily basis, what's the problem with a beauty queen attending a Halloween party like a normal person her age?

She milked it for publicity. She knew the general public and pageant would see it as a non-issue of insignificant/stupid crude pictures. It was never enough to get her caned. She wants the Miss America title, wait and see. It may give her name recognition or backfire.

It is her doing, seeking publicity over stupid pictures that are unimportant. It is a Paris Hilton type media stunt. Granted she is tame and college educated, just meant the attraction to media is there. (Two totally different women/same media instincts)

Wow, that is scary, young women all becoming media nuts. All from different walks of life yet selling out, for 15 of fame for nothing specific. Scary if it is a trend.

I agree with you 100%
I'm disgusted over the Paris teenager wanna be's.
The LindseyParisBritney girls are not proper role models.
The parents of these teenagers need sit these girls down and teach them right from wrong.

I would LOVE to find out whose on these "MORAL JUDGING" committees, just so we could nail them with some stupid crap that THEY did in high school or college. This was SO NOTHING.

Good for you Amy. You had nothing to worry about because what you did is nothing millions of others haven't done in collage. I admire the classy way you handeled your self. You're the kind of woman I'd want to marry.

Yup, like Marge and Kitten and countless others have said:
Media Hounds, seeking fame by doing nothing. It is generalizing into the regular population. What a hoot. LOL

I'm seeing the Paris, Lindsey, Britney come out in a lot of young women who are bypassing genuine talent or skills for a quick pay day from a media rant or testimonial.

The LindseyParisBritney girls are becomming the norm, it is bothering less and less people to see this goofy/mediocre life plan by a select few who are 18-26ish.

NOTE: I said select few, I am 26 and do not have a MYSPACE and no one is kissing my my breast from the outside of my sweater while on the floor. So I know there are a few of us boring yet knock out good looking 20 somethings out there.

They are harmless, goofing around photo's that all young people do. Bravo to her for not backing down to a blackmailer. I hope they find out who it was.

Rosie the chauvinist    

Study history and you will find that societies do not long exist when morality, a sense of right and wrong, good and bad, fall away. Work to make our world a better place, not one that just indulges your own senses and pleasure. You are not here on earth just to indulge but to be of good service to your companions on this planet.

Here's some news. Not everybody was a whore in high school or college. Some were busy taking care of school and work and their futures.

BRAVO is right for the manipulation, it has been fun seeing some class (JOKE).
Meaningless or pointless pictures featured all week or at least referred to as:
too bad to show immediately.

Laughing, what a goof, having fun and mapping out a plan, a goofy one but a plan.
