Leave it to Wendy Williams to ask the question that’s been on everyone’s mind when she hosted Fantasia on her talk show‘s couch earlier this morning: “Did you think about your daughter?” She was, of course, referring to Fantasia’s August suicide attempt, and that’s all it took to have the singer reaching for the tissues. Check out the moment above, wherein the perpetually honest to a fault Fantasia explains, “At the time I wasn’t really thinking about anybody…” Fantasia also discusses the stress she experienced supporting multiple members of her family. Since that was such a major part of the first season of Fantasia for Real, this conversation in turn bridges into a small preview of what to expect from the second season of Fantasia for Real (premiering Sunday, September 19 at 10/9c).
In happier talk-show moments, on yesterday’s Live with Regis and Kelly, Fantasia talked about finally getting her GED — her desire to pledge the Delta sorority had something to do with it! Watch that clip below.
Finally, TMZ has a clip of Fantasia at an airport, in which they claim “It’s been one month since Fantasia Barrino attempted to kill herself with Aspirin and a sleep aid — but now, the time has come to crack some jokes about it…at least according to Fantasia.” Actually, this is not according to Fantasia but whatever paparazzo was bothering her — he asks her if she’s taken Aspirin recently and she responds she’s switched to Tylenol. Basically, she’s goaded into playing along (lest she not answer and be branded uncooperative) and then accused of making light of her life-or-death situation. Apparently, being thrown under the bus is for all kinds of reality stars, not just those on competition shows.
