Antonella Barba Nude Photos Dispute: Sex Act Pictures Are Not Barba
American idol is in the throes of a huge internet scandal as more photos of contestant Antonella Barba are released. The attractive singer from New Jersey has obviously posed for a lot of photos and each day more are posted online for the public to find. In fact, the name Antonella Barba is working search engines overtime as idol fans plug in her name to see the latest.
But one of her pals is speaking up and is slamming down the gauntlet. The nightly news and entertainment television show Access Hollywood is reporting that Barba's best friend, Amanda Coluccio of Holmdel, New Jersey (with whom she auditioned and won a trip to Hollywood for the second round before being eliminated) told The Star-Ledger of Newark that the less graphic photos are of Barba, but denied she is pictured in the pornographic ones. And many folks have disputed the photos from day one.
"The really bad ones aren't her. I've studied them," Coluccio told The Star-Ledger for Monday's newspapers. "It's not her nose. She's never had (acrylic nail) tips (like the woman in the photo) in her life. She's the least slutty person I know."
The Associated Press notes that the photos capped a stressful week for Barba, who until recently had been studying architecture at Catholic University in Washington, D.C. Her first performance on which viewers could vote, a rendition of Aerosmith's "I Don't Want To Miss A Thing," was roundly panned by the judges.
Yet she made it through to the second round, and is due to perform Wednesday night with the nine other remaining female contestants.
A link to the photos is here that are tame. More links at the bottom are links to other more explicit photos and of the girl that may be the woman in the sex pictures. This site examines the photos in detail to see if it really is Antonella.
