It has seemed unfair to me that Frenchie Davis was kicked off American Idol while Antonella Barba has been allowed to stay. Some of you brought up the very good point that what Antonella did was for her boyfriend and what Frenchie did was for pay. I think that is a very valid argument. However, Frenchie and her supporters are demanding that Frenchie be allowed back on the show now or face an accusation that FOX has created a double standard and it is patently unfair. A press conference is scheduled tomorrow and I am sure that FOX will do something. They will not do it this week though. I am sure the suits at FOX are on their knees praying that America votes off Antonella this week and that the whole controversy will fade away. If FOX gets rid of Antonella, then they will be on the slippery slope of determining private behaviors of contestants prior to their appearance on the show.
