Okay, here's The Smoking Gun's account of what Frenchie got disqualified for: "Davis posed topless (and appeared to be masturbating) on a web site that purported to feature naked underage girls (which, of course, would be illegal). However, at the time she posed for these photos, Davis was over 18. The Washington, D.C. native has claimed that she took the topless gig to earn money so that she could re-enroll in Howard University, where she is a theater major. In a recent interview, when asked about the proudest moment of her life, Davis said, "Other than getting back in school after not having the money and not being there for a year," American Idol "has been the proudest moment 'cause I worked so hard."

So she posed topless. Big whoop. Like she's the first pop singer to have posed nude on her way up. Anyone remember Madonna? Vanessa Williams? And especially given what Fox allows of its other reality contestants, it seems odd that the network's turned prudish over Frenchie.

Argh. Damn you, Fox!
