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.

Any time you allow someone to take photos of you, you must keep in mind that if they are embarrassing to you in any way, we have too many outlets for them to be published in when you least expect it. I think this is about responsibility. Why be distracted now? She didn't seem to be when posing for the photos. I think it's odd to use them as an excuse that your voice wasn't up to Idol or the voting America's standard. I'm sure some made votes against her simply for the photos, too. Again, it's personal responsibility.

Yay! She's gone, finally. I was surprised she got kicked off, only because of all the media surrounding her pictures. Sorry sweetie, you CAN'T sing and it was your time to go.


I was surprised Haley was not kicked off and Sabrina was. What a downright SHAME!

Sorry...really don't understand why anyone would feel sorry for Antonella. She can't sing so she shouldn't have been on american idol anyway. She's not that good looking....i would say just average. Geez maybe she'll just have to get a real job like the rest of us. Poor Antonella. Oh but that's not possible cause you have to have a BRAIN to get a real job...Go Home Antonella!
