Katrina Darrell is gonna enjoy her 15 minutes of fame. This part-time model auditioned for season eight of American Idol... in a bikini!...

Katrina Darrell, the American Idol contestant who rose to prominence in 2009 when she auditioned in a bikini and clashed with judge Kara DioGuardi, has been arrested for DUI.

As first reported by TMZ, Darrell was pulled over in Pomona at 12:16 am.m. PST today and allegedly told police she was on her way to a local hospital because her mom - who was sitting shotgun - had fallen down and injured herself.

The police let her go as a result... but she then ran a red light and crashed into another car!

The former Idol hopeful tried to flee the scene, was pulled over again by cops who smelled alcohol on her breath and proceeded to fail a field sobriety test by blowing somewhere between .15 and .17, twice the legal limit in California.

Sources say Darrell was crying throughout the ordeal and released around 6 a.m. from the police station. She may also face charges for the aforementioned hit-and-run.

All this AND our readers believe DioGuardi looks better in a bikini! Ouch.

The 15 minutes of fame Katrina Darrell accumulated in January for showing up on American Idol in a bikini expired ages ago.

Or so we thought!

The mediocre singer has somehow managed to pull a Spencer Pratt/Heidi Montag/Kim Kardashian, convincing a photographer to take staged photos of her on the beach. In a bikini, of course.

We gotta say, Darrell looks good. We also gotta say: will any tabloid actually shell out photos for this former Idol contestant?

We weren't huge fans of Kara DioGuardi as the fourth American Idol judge this season.

Too often, the songwriter came across as overly serious and/or pompous.

Still, in DioGuardi's feud with former contestant Katrina Darrell, it's impossible not to take Kara's side.

This rivalry appeared to be dead following Wednesday night's unexpected duet between the pair, as they sung together on stage and even bared their bikini bodies together on stage.

Are you on Team Kara or Team Katrina?

However, sensing an opportunity to tack on a new 15 minutes of fame to her resume, Darrell called out DioGuardi in a new interview with Radar Online.

"I don't think she got the reaction she was hoping for. I think she probably thought I would cry or get mad, and I didn't - I played it off," Darrell said. "Looking back at the tape, she just made herself look stupid. She didn't make me look stupid."

Darrell says she had no idea Kara would join her on stage, a claim we find highly dubious.

Did Katrina really think she had earned her own performance on the finale?!?

We were surprised that Kris Allen won American Idol.

Still, that wasn't the most unexpected thing to take place on the stage of the Nokia Theatre last night.

As part of the two-hour finale, Kara DioGuardi sang a duet with former nemesis Katrina Darrell! (Remember her? Darrell earned the nickname "Bikini Girl" during the initial rounds of Idol auditions for donning a swimsuit while she sang for the judges.)

Moreover, at the end of their "Vision of Love" rendition, DioGuardi flashed her own bikini body for the world to see.

We strongly recommend watching the duet, if only for Randy Jackson's priceless reaction when Darrell comes out on stage, clearly enhanced in one area of her body.

Compare Kara and Katrina below and then answer our poll question:

Kara DioGuardi, Bikini

Who has the better bikini body?

This is just sad.

Someone needs to tell Katrina Darrell that her 15 minutes of fame were over a long time ago. American Idol fans have moved on to contestants with actual talent, such as Danny Gokey and Adam Lambert.

Remember Darrell? She became known as "Bikini Girl" for donning a bathing suit to her original audition.

As you can see below, not much has changed. The aspiring singer/famous person is still trying to remain relevant, sporting a bikini pretty much anywhere she goes. Such as a restaurant. Where nary a patron appears to even notice her...

Katrina Darrell is not part of the semifinal round of American Idol.

Still, the former season eight contestant - who clashed with Kara DioGuardi over her lack of singing talent and lack of clothing - is staying in the news.

Return of Bikini Girl

Darrell (aka "Bikini Girl") is receiving offers as high as $10,000 for basic club appearances, according to TMZ. There is one string (bikini) attached, of course:

She has to show up in a bathing suit.

Four minutes... three minutes... two minutes...

As her 15 minutes of fame winds down, eliminated American Idol contestant Katrina Darrell has come up with a way to extend her time in the spotlight:

Former Idoler

Goodbye, Bikini Girl! Hello, Naked Girl!

In an interview with Access Hollywood, Darrell made a truly startling admission: she'd consider posing in Playboy.

“[I’ve had] a lot of different offers, like Vegas promotion offers. Of course Playboy has called... I wouldn’t say no, but at the same time I don’t want to stunt my career by jumping into that too soon and be labeled once again, as ‘just a body.’ But I don’t knock it."

How much would you pay to see Katrina Darrell nude?

A few words of advice, Kat: with competition from fellow Playboy hopeful Ranae Shrider, you should jump on this opportunity as soon as possible.

Soon, the eyes of American Idol fans will turn to competitors that sound great on stage, as opposed to look great in swimwear.

15 minutes... 14 minutes... 13 minutes...

Katrina Darrell's 15 minutes of fame may be running out, but American Idol has made sure this beautiful season eight contestant remained in the news for at least one more day.

Kara and Katrina on Stage

On last night's round of Hollywood auditions, the judges sent 43 contestants home for good. Darrell was not included in this group, despite clashing once again with Kara DioGuardi.

Following Katrina's rendition of Faith Hill's "Breathe," the new panelist snapped: "Leave your number in the backroom. Bring your pole tomorrow," referring to Darrell's bikini-wearing, flirtatious antics from her original audition.

Shockingly, this incident was not the first time Katrina posed in a bikini. These photos were originally posted on lovinlife.ca-  but do you really care where they're from, fellas?!?

Katrina Darrell flaunted her hooters to garner publicity as American Idol's "bikini girl" last week.

In news less shocking than Jason Mesnick's eventual break up with his selected suitor on The Bachelor, it turns out that audition wasn't the first time Darrell used her breasts for attention.

No matter what new contestants such as Adam Lambert and John Twiford do, they continue to be upstaged by Katrina Darell during the first few installments of American Idol.

According to Radar Online, the aspiring singer used to work at Hooters. She got fired after three months on the job because she left in the middle of a shift to attend an audition.

"All Katrina ever talked about was becoming famous. Her one aim in life was to make it in Hollywood," said a friend, who added:

"Some girls who work at Hooters are embarrassed by the tight shorts and skimpy tops they have to wear, but Katrina loved it. She always had her shorts pulled up the tightest and her T-shirt knotted up to show off the most midriff. She loved the attention."

Katrina Darrell sucks.

No, we aren't referring to this American Idol contestant's lack of singing talent.

We're talking about the crooner's ability to take a swig of a drink, via a straw in a glass being held by her friend's cleavage. Naturally.

It turns out Darrell's bikini-baring audition for Idol last week wasn't the first time she made news for breast-laden photos.

She and her gal pals partied at Hollywood club Kress a few weeks ago. The evening started out innocently enough...

From there, however, it took a turn for the erotically thirsty...
