I think that Rosie has a valid point. Even before she made that statement I was thinking the same thing! I think, firstly, that Antonella is one of the worst singers this season and that the racy pics are what's keeping her on the show. I find it interesting that none of the judges have even mentioned the fact. It's almost as if the producers have purposely instructed them to keep it on the down-low. I just looked at the pics and realized that they are a lot more revealing than what I had anticipated. With that in mind... fat, skinny, black, white, ugly, or beautiful...we're all people and everyone deserves to be treated equally.

Rosie just likes to ignite controversy. The racism accusation is a knee-jerk reaction. She wouldn't want to stop and consider any other possiblilities. Could it be that there's a difference between sexy pictures on the beach and hard core pornography. Rosie doesn't know what she's talking about.

Rosie is absolutely right on this one. There is no way anyone can't say that American Idol has a double standard. Fox/American Idol should at least offer Ms. Davis an public apology and boot Ms. Barba. Anything short of an public apology would be disgraceful. If Fox/American Idol doesn't offer Ms. Davis an apology, Frenchie would be wise to get herself the best attorney her money can buy and sue the hell out of Fox/American Idol!

I don't think Frenchie really cares about American Idol now. She's done very well on Broadway since she was disqualified on A.I. It was the A.I. scandal that got her noticed. From Wikipedia:
Davis performed in Rent on Broadway in 2003 after appearing on American Idol. She sang the solo in the opening song of Act Two, Seasons of Love, and in ensemble roles such as Mrs. Jefferson (Joanne's mom), a woman with bags, a coat vendor, Mrs. Marquez (Mimi's mom) and others. She then left to star in a West Coast tour of the musical Dreamgirls. On June 1, 2005, Davis returned to her previous role in the Broadway production of Rent. It has been announced that Davis will leave Rent at the end of May 2007.

She currently lives in New York.

What right does Rosie O'Donnell have to criticize whomever she pleases on national tv? It would be different if the person she was blasting was there to defend themselves, but she uses her soapbox to go after people that are not her concern. If she does not like American Idol, The Apprentice, Miss USA, etc, for God's sake, don't watch it. Frankly, I am SICK of Rosie and her attacks. Enough.

I agree they should either issue Frenchie an apology and kick off Antonella Barba or they should say "hey we made a mistake" and allow Frenchie into the competition right now and truly let America decide. This season of Idol is truly the "let all the former rejects back in season" almost all the contestants competing now have auditioned more than once. Why not let Frenchie in.
