Well, it had to happen sooner or later…American Idol season 8 contestant, Katrina Darrell also known as bikini girl has made the news again! This time for her nude photos. The nudephotos, apparently taken in 2008 have been sold by the photographer. Are you surprised?
Sources have told Glossy News that the amateur photos were sold, along with brief video footage, to Joe Francis of Girls Gone Wild fame for a sum in excess of $50,000.
Katrina Darrell first made the news when she appeared at her American Idol audition wearing only a bikini. During the audition, she struck the wrong chord with the new judge, Kara Dioguardi , but she somehow made it through to the next roundbut not before judgeKara DioGuardi commented that she should should bring the pole to the next round of judging. Katrina Darrell said at the time that she isn’t a stripper, but that she does have a pole in her bedroom, only for fitness purposes.
During Hollywood week however, her group, Team Diva spent a lot of time arguing instead of practicing and Katrina Darrel was finally sent packing. American Idol judge Kara DioGuardi commented at the time that Katrina Darrell was a B@*ch as she didn’t even appear phased that she was being kicked out of the competition and had let her group down.
Representatives forKatrina Darrell, Joe Francis, Girls Gone Wild, and American Idol have yet to respond to the latest news.
