Becky American IdolThis show sure likes to find the criminals and questionably notorious, doesn’t it? The latest pop star hopeful with a secret past is Becky O’Donohue. What did Donahue do? She posed nearly naked with her twin sister in the men’s magazine Maxim.

There’s nothing like being on American Idol to help excavate a person’s past. In the case of contestant Becky O’Donohue, two-year-old photos showing her with her twin sister, Jessie, have surfaced on the Maxim magazine Web site.

The shots depict the 25-year-olds in bikinis, revealing baseball jerseys, and sitting in a sauna – clad only in towels.

The pictures were taken in 2004 for the publication’s online fantasy baseball game – and found new life when O’Donohue became an Idol contestant, Jordan Burchette, executive editor of the site, tells the Associated Press. “There’s all kind of new buzz surrounding them.”

What do you think? Should this influence fans’ votes at all? And is there such a thing as too much exposure?
