What? Are you kidding me?
Miss New Jersey Amy Polumbo was recently the victim of blackmail and decided to go public with the photos. I say good for her.
Of course she disappointed me a bit when she apologized. Why apologize? She didn't do anything wrong, in the pics she was a college kid having fun. I've seen the pictures as has the rest of the country and they're no big deal. Why should a person apologize when they've done nothing wrong?
While I'm not a fan of pageants because of their promotion of physical beauty over any other qualities, I will say kudos to Amy Polumbo for standing up for herself and for paving the way for future contestants. You know this sort of thing wouldn't be a problem if the pageant officials weren't hell bent on insisting these contestants have such a fairy tale image.
What fairy tale image you ask?
The one of perfection. As Amy Polumbo said, she's a human, not a robot.
Cut her some slack.
