Miss New Jersey Scandal
If you haven’t heard by now, the current Miss New Jersey, Amy Polumbo, is currently suffering from what we like to call “picture remorse.” This is kind of like “buyers remorse,” only once your pictures hit the internet, you can’t take them back for a refund! Well, the bad publicity for Miss Polumbo has turned into positive publicity for Faviana. Miss New Jersey won her crown donning Faviana’s 5958 dress, and the company is now receiving calls daily asking about the style. Navid Moradi (the owner), in an interview with the New York Post said:
“We’re being swamped with calls from all our stores wanting to reorder it. It’s fantastic,” Faviana co-president Navid Moradi told us. “What’s funny is we didn’t even know Amy had worn our dress, but I was watching the ‘Today’ show when I saw footage of Amy’s win and said, ‘Oh my God, that’s our style No. 5958.’ We feel sorry for Amy, but we’re ecstatic, too.”
Amy released these pictures to NBC and The Today Show because someone was using them to blackmail her into giving up her crown. Did anyone investigate the runner-up?
Although the photos are slightly racy, it really isn’t that big of a deal. Britney is going crazy while taking care of two kids, Li-Lo is in rehab, and the public gets mad at this girl for taking pictures with her clothes ON. Why is this even a story? Amy will be keeping her crown, and serving out the rest of her term as Jersey’s top lady.
