PEMBROKE, NY (WKBW) - A former teenage beauty queen who once starred on a reality TV show faced a judge on prostitution charges Tuesday night.

Alicia Guastaferro, 20, of Williamsville, appeared in Pembroke Town Court in Genesee County and pleaded not-guilty.

Guastaferro was arrested on Aug. 27 on the New York State Thruway at the Pembroke Service Area.

Her companion, James Doyle, 57, a Rochester attorney, was charged with DWI.

"He gives me $500 to $700 to spend the night," Guastaferro told state police, according to her statement. "He calls me about two times a month and we have sex."

Guastaferro's family was featured on the ABC-TV reality series Wife Swap.

She is scheduled to return to court on Dec. 11.
