Despite pleading guilty to misdemeanor prostitution Tuesday, Scalia, 45, denies she sold sex out of her Long Island hot dog truck. She vows to be back on the street Wednesday continuing to sell her goods.

"I'll be back out there with my bikini top on, selling my hot dogs. I'm right in front of Pep Boys on Baldwin in Freeport. I have loads of customers, everybody loves me, nobody has a problem," Scalia declared to CBS New York and other reporters.

Police arrested Scalia, of East Rockaway, last week and charged her with prostitution, saying an undercover cop went to her hot dog truck and then to her home for a sex act. However, Scalia denied she sold sex to the police officer and said he got a lap dance before police arrived at the scene and arrested her.

"Prostitution is sex. I'm not selling sex, I'm selling my cleavage," Scalia told WCBS reporter Derricke Dennis Wednesday night.

Scalia walked out of Nassau County Jail Tuesday showing her cleavage and celebrating, saying "I'm sexy and I know it everybody." She also made no secret of her plans to continue to spice up her hot dogs with sex appeal.

"I'm a mother of four kids and, yes, I show my cleavage. I think it's sexy. If Pamela Anderson can do it, so can I," Scalia told reporters.

Scalia now faces seven days in jail for her misdemeanor - five of which she has already served. According to CBS New York, her sentence is contingent on her getting a psychiatric evaluation but there will be no restrictions on her selling hot dogs in whatever clothing she chooses.
