Frenchie Davis was booted from the second season of American Idol when news broke of her past topless modeling. Now that it’s widely known Antonella Barba’s tatas (and more?) are but a click away, Frenchie feels like she’s been shafted. She told the New York Post:
"I couldn’t help but notice the difference between the manner in which she was dealt with and how I was dealt with. I think it’s fantastic if Idol has evolved and I think it’s fantastic she won’t have to go through what I went through four years ago. But if the rules have changed, I believe there should be something to make up for the fact that I was humiliated needlessly."
What that something is, Frenchie won’t say ("It’s open for discussion," she offers). Hmmmm. Could it be that she wants…attention?!? The thing is, there’s a difference between posing for and accepting money from a nudie site (as Frenchie did) and having your not-for-profit, girl-gone-wild past exposed (as has been done to Antonella Barba).
It was ridiculous that Frenchie was kicked off in the first place, but American Idol isn’t necessarily being morally selective. It’s easy to understand how the powers that be can draw a line between shots intended for the public versus shots intended for private use.
Regardless, a protest for Frenchie at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood is planned for today. The best part of this entire ordeal is that the demonstration is being sponsored by Project Islamic H.O.P.E. Because when a busty topless girl is wronged, she knows she can always turn to religious groups for help. [New York Post]
