    • Growing up upper middle class with all the advantages that entails, Vicki D’Amato, class President, Cheerleading Captain, straight A student, is crowned Miss RI. As the pressure becomes intense to prepare for Miss America, family, friends, the Pageant Committee and staff think she will put RI on the map and have a good shot at top ten and a Talent Award win. When September and Atlantic City come and go, Vicki takes home nothing. Not a single trophy or honorable mention. This once bright shining star, embarrassed and devastated, gradually descends in to a world of drugs and alcohol. No one realizes the destructive route she is on until a shocking 3am phone call to the D’Amato home; Vicki, having left a nightclub drunk and alone, has been beaten and raped at the hands of a madman. Unable to face her problems, her downward spiral continues and she further escapes with wild parties, a questionable crowd, a new hard partying boyfriend and cocaine. One fateful night led to an arrest for possession and a once promising young beauty queen and aspiring entertainer, must face her inner demons. Seduced by the pursuit of fame and the influence of drugs, will she be just another casualty of a childhood lost and a dream deflated? A “True Story” of redemption. Vicki’s journey is as heartbreaking as it is heartwarming.
