How's this for irony? American Idol judge Simon Cowell chose a party at the Playboy Mansion, of all places, to speak out about the Antonella Barba naughty-bits pics scandal. "I think it's disgraceful that so-called friends would sell these pictures," he told People. "I really, really have a problem with that. A big problem." What I have a problem with is America's decision to keep the Barba doll over any number of more talented would-be contestants. But I digress....

At the same fete, Playboy icon Hugh Hefner told Access Hollywood there is a "very real possibility" that he will invite Barba to simply cut to the chase and properly pose for his lad mag, if (meaning when) she gets the hook from Idol.
