Fantasia Goes Back To Work

A week after apparently overdosing on a concoction of sleeping pills and aspirin, Fantasia Barrino released a statement to her fans thanking them for their love and support and saying she will soon be back to promoting her new album. The former “American Idol” winner’s publicist said the singer will soon be making television appearances on “Good Morning America,” “Live with Regis & Kelly,” “The Wendy Williams Show” and “The View.”
No doubt the singer will grilled on her apparent suicide attempt which is now being played out as a publicity stunt. Just days after her release from the hospital Fantasia was spotted with Antwaun Cook while cameras from her VH1 reality series “Fantasia For Real” taped the encounter.

In the midst of all this craziness there is some good news concerning the singer’s musical career. According to Billboard Fantasia’s latest single “Bittersweet” has jumped to #1 on the Urban Radio Airplay Chart and is presently #10 on the R&B chart.

Fantasia’s upcoming “Back to Me” CD is scheduled to hit stores on August 24th.

  1. I certainly hope this is not a publicity stunt. Life is too precious, marriage too sacred, and love is too special to play with. Besides she has talent. That is what will make her career. Not somebody’s husband.

  2. Yeah. I really don’t believe it was a publicity stunt. She does have to keep working, which means that she will have to continue taping the reality show even after a suicide attempt. Nowadays, many people act like celebs are not human and don’t have feelings. They still can be heartbroken and/or be “stupid in love”. They have to learn from their mistakes just we do. Just as we don’t always “wake up” overnight and realize that we have to move on from bad situations, they need time as well. Also, I know that many may not agree with me, but I feel that women need to realize that when a man is separated from his wife, he is not “open for business”. The divorce needs to be final before that happens, and then messy situations that we are ashamed of wouldn’t start in the first place. It’s getting to the point that some women think twice before they will even put their husbands out when they mess up because some other woman will swoop in and start playing wifey, and he never learns a lesson. Then, he just keeps on with the same bad behaviors with each one that believes the bad talk about the last woman. If the bad rep of his last woman is true, then he’ll leave for good. If a woman thinks he’s that good of a man, she can wait until the divorce is final.

  4. Glad her kidneys are okay. Lots of people who o-d on acetaminophen don’t come back from it without serious liver/kidney damage. Good luck to her. I’ve read a couple reviews of her album; all great. 🙂 I’ll have to check it out.
