While men everywhere scour the Internet for photos of Antonella Barba nude and Blake Lewis possibly basks in the glow of the real deal , a former American Idol contestant is trying to make a name for herself outside of the infamous blow job queen. Remember Amanda Coluccio? She was the New Jersey friend of Barba, the gal who was voted off Idol before the finals and who some have even accused of leaking those Antonella sex photos out of jealousy. How has Coluccio responded to this snub and these accusations?

Sexy Pictures Won't Get Barba Booted From 'Idol' But Wednesday Night's Song Could - MTV
Whatever year-old singer Antonella Barba expected to gain from auditioning for the star-making machine American Idol , it was likely fame, not infamy. Photos of Barba topless, hands covering her breasts, and on the toilet, appeared on the Internet just as she emerged as a semifinalist on television's top-rated show earlier this month. Over the weekend, racier photos materialized, including several shots of a beautiful brunette performing a sex act on a man who is not identified. Her best friend and fellow Idol auditioner, Amanda Coluccio , said the tamer shots are of Barba, including a full-length shot of Barba naked, covered with rose petals, taken for a calendar she made for her boyfriend of several years. But the lewdest of the bunch, she is certain, are not Barba. It's not her nose.

A contestant on Fox TV's "American Idol" will not be disqualified despite the emergence of racy photos, including one of her reportedly frolicking semi-nude at a World War II memorial. Controversy has been brewing in the past week over the case of Antonella Barba, 20, of Point Pleasant, N. But the anonymous release of numerous photos, some said to be of a graphic sexual nature, have put the young woman in a more focused spotlight. Nigel Lythgoe, producer of "American Idol," told the celebrity TV show "Extra" he would not be kicking off Barba, but her fate would be in the voters' hands. Viewers of "Idol" cast ballots by telephone for contestants they wish to advance at the end of each show.
Hugh Grant was arrested in April after the actor apparently pelted photographers with baked beans. As clean-cut star of the tween hit High School Musical 2 , Vanessa Hudgens is a role model to millions of kids. So when nude pictures of the year-old popped up on the Internet in September, it was a shock to fans and a setback for the Disney darling, who eventually apologized. In a bizarre appearance with a Seattle TV station in January, Paula Abdul slurred, swayed and seemed to talk nonsense to local anchors, who asked her about the American Idol auditions in their city.
