The cutthroat world of beauty pageants

Blackmailer threatens Miss New Jersey--twice.
[Amy] Polumbo announced Thursday that someone was trying to blackmail her with old photographs and demanding that she give up her crown by Friday. The student at Wagner College in New York did not step down and has declined to comment publicly beyond her announcement.

[Palumbo's lawyer, Anthony] Caruso did not say what the first set of photos showed, but he said Friday said that it was the captions on the photographs that troubled Polumbo, not the images. He would not reveal what the captions said.
