Katrina Darrell didn’t make it on American Idol, but she’ll have more than those 15 proverbial minutes of fame, if Playboy comes through as hoped.
She made a scene in a bikini that had tongues wagging, and now she may get herself front and center, as in centerfold in Playboy Magazine. That would be a coup, as it launched the career of Marilyn Monroe and others. The New York Daily News reports our gal may just have a great direction for the body she displayed.
American Idol is known for making news all by itself and for launching careers or ending them quickly with nasty remarks from the crew, especially Simon Cowell, who is known for them. Then there’s sentimental Paula Abdul who criticizes smartly but with a tad of emotional over-the-top sometimes. It’s high drama again with the contestant Darrell who was given the boot after doing more than is usually tolerated on the American Idol show. And that’s a lot.
She may have gone past the first round but at the group level Katrina Darrell bombed out with judges and other contestants. She was reported to be outrageously the “diva” among the other contestants, demanding and difficult and taking a break to go to bed in the midst of rehearsals. She also would show up late when she had to work with the other three singers. She explained her bad behavior by saying her back had hurt and she was tired.
A public hug all decked out in bikini didn’t get her past her negative behavior and on to the next round. The young woman has a major website showing her body in all sorts of ways, bikinis and other revealing costumes. She still has ambitions, and although protesting she doesn’t want to be known just for her sex appeal, it seems that’s what she’s using to get ahead. That’s interesting since fan mails don’t show her as Hollywood material. That’s after she showed up for her original rehearsal wearing a bikini.
