Racy Net Photos Won't Disqualify Antonella Barba
After several days of playing coy about the fate of Antonella Barba, American Idol producer Nigel Lythgoe has reportedly announced that despite the emergence of numerous provocative photos, the sixth season semifinalist will not be disqualified from the smash-hit Fox reality competition.
It cost Frenchie Davis, a finalist in 2003, her spot as she was dumped after it was determined she posed nude for a porn site. Why not Antonella?
Charlie McCollum of the Mercury news writes, "There is a difference, though. The Barba photos (the ones that are definitely of her) were private ones, not from a photo shoot for a porn site. Barba may be guilty of bad judgment or outright stupidity but that doesn't carry quite the same weight as Davis taking money to pose and then not telling the "Idol'' producers about it." (source
I'm urging members of Team Chunk to march in protest about this. Right after we have an emergency meeting at Steak N' Shake,
we will spring into action. All for one and one for all!
