    I don't think it's fair to condemn any of these women for the mistakes and/or choices they've made in their past if it has nothing to do with their performances on the show. We can evaluate them on their singing, or current behavior, as long as it's relevant to the show, but what right do we have to scour their pasts? I also find it distressing that people would vilify Frenchie (or even Sarah, of Joe Millionaire) for doing something that is completely legal, and I still don't think it was right to kick Frenchie off the show.

    I hope this doesn't hurt Trenyce in the long-run, but it very well might.
    I don't think any of them should have been kicked off. Sarah was NOT. Frenchie WAS. Trenyce was NOT. I think it was right to remove Jaered Andrews from the competition, who has been charged with manslaughter, apparently. And Frenchie's case is not so cut-and-dry- the website she posed topless for advertised itself as under-18 pics, so it's murky area.
    And I sing sometimes like my life is at stake because you're only as loud as the noises you make.

    Sorry to digress from thread subject for a moment, but that's actually not true. Legal websites must state that all models are of age, though there are a plethora of sites for young women (like "Barely Legal" or "Hot Teens"). A website would never, ever advertise itself as "under-18" pics unless they're complete idiots just asking to be investigated by the Feds. You might be confused because Frenchie's picture was put up on site called something like "Daddy's Little Girls" but this type of fantasy is very common in the sex industry, and if all models are over 18 and consensually pose, it is legal . I'd also like to add that models for these things very rarely have a say in how their pictures are used, and most don't even know what the images will be used for. She probably had no idea it would be put on a website with such a name.

    Thanks for the clarification, Snowflake Girl.

    In that case...

    WHY DID THEY HAVE TO GET RID OF FRENCHIE??? SHE WAS SOOOOOOOOOO GOOD! I REALLY MISS HER! SHE COULD BLOW ALL THE OTHER CONTESTANTS OUT OF THE WATER, OR AT THE VERY LEAST BE SOLID COMPETITION AGAINST CLAY AND RUBEN!!!

    Okay, I'm done...sorry to stray from the topic. Just had to get that out of my system.

    It's okay, Aota Bass, let it all out. I agree with you, Frenchie was my favorite too, the one I was really hoping would make it to the top, and I don't think I've ever gotten over her being thrown out (it was the reason I joined up at the FORT, to release my frustration over Frenchie).

    Sorry for the thread-jack, everybody. Aota Bass & I just needed to commiserate.

    Calling it mere shoplifting is an attempt to minimize the crime as she was convicted of a FELONY. That means she stole at least $500 worth of merchandise.

    Furthermore, she was an adult, so you can't let her off with the old "she was just a kid" excuse.

    While I do not think such a thing should haunt someone forever in every aspect of their life, I do think it should affect them on things like American Idol.

    Part of the purpose of shows like this is to give people around the country and the world people to appreciate, respect, admire, etc. One element of deserving that is to be of upstanding moral character.

    I think she should get booted from the show for this. I say this knowing it will have NO EFFECT on her changes of landing a contract (I think she will get one no matter what), but I do not think she deserves to continue to be highlighted on a family TV show.

    I dissagree, what Frenchie did was legal; what Trenyce did was not. I find Frenchie's actions a lot less objectionable, although personally, I don't think either of them should have been pulled from the show.
    Completely agreed!

    Yes, frenchie told the producers about her past from the begining as well, but they decided that being on a porn site was a little more serious (and I have to agree)... I guess the story is that Trenyce was working at a retail store, and she would put clothes in a trashbag, and take it out like it was the trash, and then later come back and pick it up.... It was taken off of her record, she told the judge that she would turn her life around (and it appears she has done that)...
    I think shoplifting is more serious than being on a porn site. (Unless of course Frenchie was arrested for it. )

    I don't think Frenchie should of been taken off and I don't think Trenyce should either... If they keep taking the talented black girls off, it wouldn't be as entertaining. But I do think this will hurt Trenyce when it comes to voting because people will think to much of it and make it something its not like what is already happening, people are making it a bigger deal than it is because they didn't like Trenyce in the first place. I really could care less about her past and its stupid to be kicked off for something like that.. I mean she was punished for it and she learned and now is a better person over it. People that say she shows that she doesn't have good morals.. what do they know? They don't know her now, people change and you can definately see a change in Trenyce. Little kids that watch this show probably don't even know about Trenyce's past.. she isn't out onstage grabbing her crotch or giving the middle finger, she isn't a thug like some people make her out to be.. at least anymore.

    But like I said, this will probably hurt her in the competition exspecially when the voting gets more and more tight.. I don't think she will be in the bottom three this coming week unless she totally bombs it or even does as bad as she did last week.. I'm hoping she will blow everyone away, but if she does or doesn't, I'm still voting for her for the whole two hours!
