BEAUTY FACES CHALLENGE OF PLAYING HER ROYAL SELF

When the producers of "Miss America, Behind the Crown, " were looking around for a lead actress they came up with a brilliant idea - why not have Caroline Sapp play herself? Sapp, 25, will make her acting debut in the made-for-TV movie, which tells the story of the beauty queen's relationship with the allegedly abusive Nuu Faaola, a former New York Jets running back. The NBC movie airs Sept. 21, two days after Sapp's reign as Miss America ends.
