Antonella Barba: The XXX Bidding War

3/8/2007 2:27 PM PST
TMZ has learned that an adult video company has joined the check danglers who are offering "American Idol's" controversial competitor major dough, as they attempt to cash-in on her newfound slut-ebrity status.

SugarDVD, the largest renter of adult DVDs online, tells TMZ they've offered Antonella Barba a whopping $500,000 to become their new spokesperson. Last month, the same company offered $1 million to Kim Kardashian, which she refused.

If Barba signs, Sugar CEO "Jax" claims that her first gig would be hosting a launch party for their new video-on-demand service. Jax said he welcomed a bidding war, telling TMZ, "You saw her photos online, she's smokin'. We will not lose because of money." Neither will Antonella.
