Olivia Culpo appears on the cover of the latest issue of Boston Common magazine. In an interview with writer Nichole Bernier, the former Miss Universe (and Rhode Island native) talked about how she comes from a musical family — her mother, Susan Culpo, plays the viola in the Boston Symphony Orchestra and her father, Peter Culpo, was a professional trumpet player before he got into the restaurant biz. When she decided to start entering beauty pageants, her parents wondered what she was thinking.
