Rosie O'Donnell Blasts American Idol, Antonella Barba Photo Scandal

by at . Comments

Rosie O'Donnell isn't a fan of American Idol.

The latest verbal smackdown from the host The View in regard to America's favorite reality show centered around Antonella Barba. Perhaps you've heard of her.

Because Idol canned former contestant Frenchie Davis (pictured here with Antonella) for her breast-baring snapshots, but kept current wannabe Barba despite hers - and because Davis is black and fat and Barba is, well, neither - Rosie went off on the show like it was produced by Donald Trump or something.

"It's weightist and wacist," said Rosie, sounding somewhat like a cartoon character.

Unlike her critique of the Tara Conner scandal, O'Donnell has a semblance of a point on this issue. But there are many sides to the story. In fact, here's Frenchie's:

"I think it's fantastic if American Idol has evolved and I think it's fantastic she won't have to go through what I went through four years ago," Davis told the New York Post. "But if the rules have changed, I believe there should be something to make up for the fact that I was humiliated needlessly."

She has that right. You have that right. Even if you hate what she says, she has that right. Otherwise we don't live in a free nation anymore.

Rosie O'Donnell has no right to make any kind of moral prescriptions whatsoever, and she certainly has no right to make charges of racismâ€"especially after her unrepentant "ching-chong" incident last autumn. I'm sick and tired of Ms. O'Donnell's thinly veiled, spite-filled jealously, and I keep hoping for the day when Donald Trump follows through with his lawsuit. As for Antonella Barba, consider me a new fan. I never would have paid attention to Ms. Barba if Rosie had been able to keep her stupid, obstreperous mouth shut.

I can't stand you Rosie O Donnel, Barbera what were you and all the other people over there thinking? You knew she was a BIG MOUTH. A perfectly good show down the toilet Because of Mr Rosie O. My friends and I can't stand the show anymore. She spits her words at everyone. There is nothing entertaining or enjoyable about Mr Rosie. I pity her kids, her Sleepmate, And most of all anyone that has ever had to endure her company. What is it she is saying exactly? Most people are taught that if you want to learn you LISTEN. She never LISTENS so therefore she's just plain stupid! Always has been always will be. What a shame. Mr. Rosie Will you just Shut Up! The world has had enough of your ugly Blabbering HOLE!

Nothing racist here. Frenchie was PAID to pose for a modeling assignment and Barba had personal photos never meant for the public stolen from her. Anybody who doesn't see the difference is stupid.

So Antonella Barba is white now? She sure doesnt look white. So is the point that Idol is somehow only racist *against* black people? Thats a real stretch considering the number of black contestants who do very well and the fact that of three judges, one is black and one is something other than white. The reason is clearly that Barba is hot, did VERY racey pics, and as a result is a ratings getter.

I find it unbelievable that rosie is such an expert on every situation. if it was a homosexual she would protest that they shouldnt be kicked of but because its a young beautiful thin 20 year old girl all the things she is not nor ever has been aside from young, shes outraged. we all know rosie went home and looked at those pictures and they're the back ground on her home computer. but she'll say anything to boost ratings and cause controversy because she doesnt want to come to terms with the facts that shes a washed up has been complaining about everyone else. i would never had taken the time to right this if it wasnt rosie and this whole thing didnt frustrate me.
