    @ Debbi : you know, non-US people read this site too…. And Gabriella is her second name. So technically, I’m half-wrong.

    @ Linda: you’re welcome (I’m not the admin, but I wrote the post), I didn’t know either until I read her bio on wiki and found out about the story.
    Here’s what they say about the scandal “Ten months into her reign as Miss America, she received an anonymous phone call stating that nude photos of her taken by a photographer prior to her pageant days had surfaced. Williams believed the photographs were private and had been destroyed; she claims she never signed a release permitting the photos to be used.” The photographs depicted mild overtones of simulated lesbian sex, which was quite controversial for its time. Penthouse wanted to publish the photos and so she was pressured to resign.

    it wasn’t so much pressure to resign as it was her title being taken away.
