In this season’s requisite tawdry scandal, pictures of 20-year-old Antonella Barba have surfaced, allegedly featuring the Catholic University of America architecture major nude and engaged in a sex act. Barba, who initially won a trip to Hollywood to compete in the sixth season of American Idol along with friend Amanda Coluccio, may now be considered ineligible to compete after the anonymous pictures were posted on the Internet.
In an odd twist though, Barba’s already-eliminated pal Coluccio is publicly defending her, claiming the racier photos have been doctored and telling Fox, "The really bad ones aren’t her. I’ve studied them." Coluccio’s proof? "She’s never had [acrylic nail] tips in her life." While exonerating in the short term, this evidence could have an effect on her status as a New Jersey native.
"She’s the least slutty person I know," Coluccio added.
