Fantasia’s Gonna Get Real On VH1

Fantasia

The picture above, while ridiculous, is a visual expression of our excitement that American Idol winner Fantasia Barrino will be starring in her own VH1 reality show. Apparently the Lord was listening to the prayers of millions! Since the beginning of her fame, the singer has been open about her struggles, surviving a rape in high school, raising her daughter as a teenager and facing her illiteracy. We can’t wait to watch her day-today life unfold on our TVs.  Here’s the official word from VH1:

VH1 will follow Fantasia along her life’s journey — a journey full of both ups and downs — and will share how she deals with life and the seismic aftershocks of fame. The show will reveal Fantasia’s “reality” — her life as a blossoming recording artist and a young single mother who has achieved great success, but not without her share of hardship along the way. Nevertheless, Fantasia continues to persevere with the courage to live life with an openness and sincerity that her fans have come to love her for. The series is slated for an early 2010 premiere.  [Photo: Getty Images. Via VH1Blog]
