Barba: Skanky Pics Were an "Unnecessary Distraction"

3/9/2007 3:40 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Although rejected Jerseyite "Idol" wannabeen Antonella Barba was distracted by racy pics of her that spread over the web, her parental units apparently didn't blink an eye.

"They're really encouraging me to just not get battered by nonsense that doesn't matter and that's not relevant to the competition," Barba told Ryan Seacrest this morning on his KIIS-FM show. The fallen slut-ebrity added that the whole situation was "hard to deal with" and an "unnecessary distraction." Yes, it was distracting for many!

Barba revealed she'll probably stick around L.A. for a bit to see what offers come her way, saying she'd like to keep singing (ack!), act, or even model. Looks like "Girls Gone Wild" may get their wish.

And while fellow rejectee Sundance Head spilled details on a behind-the-scenes brat, Barba played dumb and wisely kept her mouth shut ... for once.

i'm finished with america idol for not kicking her off. she can't stand for something american when she clearly doesn't respect america and if she's a part of anything i'm not supporting it be it a tv. show, movie or an album.


the fact that her parents don't care about her behavior shows that the apple doesn't fall far from the tree. its sick and twisted that this behavior is not being punished. i have yet to hear her say that she's sorry for disrespecting every man and woman who fought in ww2. whats next for her? a photo spree at the world trade center ? or how about the holocaust museum?

She is no way going to become a model... She is too fat and ugly to be a high class model. Perhaps Sears Catalogues will want her.

And I bet her acting is as good as her singing...

Just wondering    

Jen,

You are kidding, right? Christ, what horrible whore thing did she do? She made a lousy video with someone she thought she was in love with, and could trust. It's not her fault she found out he was a pig. Heck of a lesson for someone so young to learn.

I'll bet you are a heck of a lot of fun under the sheets!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Get a life, except I already think you are dead.

I WANTED TO KNOW WHAT ALL THE FUSS ABOUT HER WAS SO I TUNES IN LAST NIGHT, I HAVE WATCHED AI BEFORE BUT NOT EVERY WEEK.
ANTONELLA CANNOT SING!!! SHE WAS ABVIOUSLY VOTED OFF BECAUSE AMERICA FELT THAT WAY ABOUT HER. YES, I SAW THE PICTURES AND SHE LOOKS SLUTTY TO ME. I'M 22 YEARS OLD AND I HAPPEN TO HAVE THE SAME FIGURE THAT SHE DOES AND I HAVE NEVER DISPLAYED MYSELF THAT WAY BECAUSE YOU NEVER KNOW IF IT CAN COME BACK AND HAUNT YOU. SHE'S NOT AN UGLY GIRL BUT I DON'T THINK SHE IS IDOL MATERIAL, SHE CAN'T SING PEOPLE!!!!!

Her parents must be soooooooooooo proud!!

I guess as long as she can rake in the dough, it doesn't matter what she does to get it.
Mr. and Mrs. Barba - there's a name for girls like your daughter, and you two, it seems, are her pimps!

As a resident of New Jerey, I am embarrassed that you stake a claim here.

This girl went wild long ago.

I'd do her !!! Voters out there kept Hally ??? Hally has maybe two notes she hits in her dull ass monotone voice . At least this girl had three notes . She got the boot one week early because girls at home are tired of their guys slobbering at this hot chick . Love you girl with your non-singing sweet ass !!

mysteriously clear    

Antonella didn't do anything that most people haven't done, the only problem is that she happened to be photographed doing it. If we are to call her a slut and a whore for those pictures, then why do we continue support other artists who conduct themselves in the same way, if not worse? Artists who definately don't embody what it means
American (since apparently there is a code of conduct) People act like huge hypocrites and bash this poor girl, when I bet most of you have done the same shit, She was doing something for her boyfriend or whatever that guy was to her, and he took this opportunity to humiliate her. Well, just like her 15 minutes might be up soon, his will be up sooner, cause the pictures are already old news and he's just some asshole with no life.
