Antonella’s friend confirms some naked pics are real, and says Antonella is “horrified”

Antonella Barba’s best friend, who also appeared on American Idol 6, confirms that some of the pictures of Antonella online are real, and says the semi-finalist is “horrified.”

Amanda Coluccio confirmed that the “full-length shot of Barba naked, covered with rose petals, taken for a calendar she made for her boyfriend of several years,” is actually her. That photo was published by I Don’t Like You In That Way along with several other, far more explicit photos that her that Amanda says are not of her best friend. “The really bad ones aren’t her. I’ve studied them. It’s not her nose. She’s never had (acrylic nail) tips in her life. She’s the least slutty person I know,” Amanda told the New Jersey Star-Ledger.

The less explicit photos “were meant to be seen by one person and one person only,” Coluccio said. The paper reports that she “speaks with Barba daily, [and] says they believe someone from Catholic University broke into her computer and posted the pictures.”

As for those conversations, “She’s been crying. She’s horrified. She’s most upset about what her parents think,” Amanda said.
