    oh that's sad …but still …spending like a high roller when you're not is bound to end up in troubs.



  2. 2

    lol
    should have bought a smaller house.



  3. 3

    Damn shame her album flopped…I liked george Huff on that season anyway..Fantasia was like too boring and ghettofabulous for me….But whatever America ya'll picked her



  4. 4

    That's what happens when you havn't sold a record in 3 years, right Rueben?



  5. 5

    Its not her fault–she couldn't read her bills! Probably didn't even know what they were.



  6. 6

    That sucks. It's happening to way too many people these days.



  7. 7

    What happend to all her cash???



  8. 8

    How could she afford it in the first place?



  9. 9

    what happend to all her cash? spent it on vocal lessons? LOL



  10. 10

    This really stinks, no joking matter. Sorry, Fantasia….



  11. 11

    How sad =( Nobody is safe!!!!



  12. 12

    She pissed all her money away. I don't feel badly for her at all.



  13. 13

    victim?



  14. 14

    hope she didn't quit her day job!



  15. 15

    WHERE DID ALL THE MONEY GO?



  16. 16

    A foolish man (or woman) and his/her money are soon parted.



  17. 17

    well that sucks for her, she should work instead of buying fancy houses that she can't afford



  18. 18

    Re: SweetMocha – Number 3, that avatar ain't nuttin but a hoochie. Who the hell would you be to complain about ghettofabulous…???



  22. 22

    stop spending like a nig. oh wait…..



  23. 23

    What happened to her money?



  24. 24

    Re: Hot Monkey Love HATES GORILLAS!! – Her life is a little….well a lot…..more humble now. Bargain basements and all.



  25. 25

    Re: Hot Monkey Love HATES GORILLAS!! – I hate men in lingerie. And with long oily Rick James jerry curls.



  26. 26

    Don't compare her to the mainstream middle American financial crisis. This is a person who made a lot of money and completely mismanaged it. Typical rags to riches to rags stupid ghetto mentality.



  27. 27

    Saw a story on her house once…ridiculous excess…that's not a victim of the recession, that's just stupidity…she seems cool, but come on…

  28. elo says – reply to this

    In reality she's only losing the right to eventually hold title to a house, poor planner.



  29. 29

    Re: Hot Monkey Love HATES GORILLAS!! – I hate to tell you, honey, you ARE a fucking GORILLA.
    Bbwwaahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahhahahhaha. :D



  30. 30

    NO, she's a victim of possibly buying a house she can't afford!! Foreclosure is a consequence……..



  31. 31

    SUCKS TO BE HER RIGHT NOW.

    i was wondering how she could afford that on cribs…sorry but you need to be big time to afford something like that…and payments…not recession its another story of americans living beyond their means…and not knowing how to manage their finances…this country will go up in smoke if people dont wake up…



  41. 41

    Re: Hot Monkey Love_VP! – YAWN!!! AT LEAST MY AVIE IS NOT MY REAL PIC UNLIKE YOUR GORILLA AVIE THAT CORRECTLY RESEMBLES YOUR FAT ASS BEHIND THE COMPUTER TYPING!

    42

    Victim? Fuck you. She bought beyond her means and probably spent all her goddamn money on hair and clothing. What is it with hip hop/soul/R&B artists living large and not paying their FUCKING bills.



  43. 43

    LEONA DAHHHHLING…I THINK YOU REALLY SHOULD SIMPLY IGNORE THE IMPOSTERS…I MEAN AFTER ALL…YOUR SERIOUS FANS (OF WHICH I'M ONE) WILL ALWAYS BE ABLE TO MAKE THE DISTINCTION BETWEEN YOUR SPARKLING AND WITTY MESSAGES, AND YOUR IMPOSTER'S (OR IMPOSTERS') LAME AND POORLY CONSTRUCTED POSTS.



  44. 44


  45. 45

    geeze perez, not many sympathic people here-don't blame the economy, sub prime mortgages, etc. With the money she won and the advance she probably got, she could have afforded a very nice house without a mortgage. BUT, in the case of people who get sudden fame-they think that the money is coming in forever and they spend the money like it is. NO, can't feel sorry for her. I would be set for life with what she received in checks



  46. 46

    Bitch is fug and it sucks for her! SUMMER TIMMMME BUT THE LIVIN'AIN'T EASY!



  47. 47

    Re: Genghis Khan – I agree. I wouldn't call it "ghetto", but a lot of people get carried away. If I were famous, I'd rent out a damn 2 bedroom apartment in fucking Montana until I knew that my career would last long enough to buy a multi-million dollar mansion in Cali and then completely design it like she did. The thing that REALLY bothers me is when a celebrity buys an 8 bedroom house when they don't even have a family. If they had at least 4 kids, sure…but seriously dude lol.



  48. 48

    Sorry, but spending beyond her means is no ones fault but her own. Karma!



  49. 49

    WOW!
    i remember i voted for her!
    i still think she has a unique voice, but she looks ugly on that picture! and that LV bag is hideous!
    very ghetto fabulous of her, well that's how I'd describe her anyways.
    its funny though, America picked her as our "Idol"
    sh*t happens!



  50. 50

    That fucking purse she's carrying is worth atleast $30k. I dont feel sorry for her. Geese



  51. 51

    39 I think that will be a good idea! The zombies keep coming no matter how I drill their brains! Scary!
    I do want to meet on Thursday in St. Lucia however I can't stay all the weekend. Only until Friday night.
    I am so looking forward to quality time together!

    Re: kate889 – NO ONE is a victim of foreclosure? You come on back when you've lived and learned a little. I'm not sobbing for some rich girl who lost her fortune by handling it poorly. But you are STUPID if you think nobody loses their home through no fault on their own. People get sick, people lose their jobs, life happens. Losing your house doesn't mean you were necessarily irresponsible in your purchase. Sometimes life just bites and bad things happen.



  53. 53

    I don't feel one bit sorry for her. Did we suddenly forget her "DIVA" behavior in the color purple; and she hasn't had much of a career either. So to put it simply she's living way beyond her means.



  54. 54

    What the hell posessed her to buy that big house? That's the kind of home you see someone who has been in the entertainment business for years and has done well for some time….



  55. 55

    she stop putting out good CDs. its unfortunate, but she shouldnt have paid her accountant so much.



  56. 56

    Guess she'll be going back on welfare. I know I for one will be so glad to help support her after she pissed all that money away.

    Re: Hot Monkey Love HATES GORILLAS!! – And I see your little band of misfits has caved in upon itself. After one day. Given up. Turned tail and run. Submitted. Bowed down to the power of the anti-clique. Something you snooty, snitty girls should have left behind in junior high. Cliques are not kind. And cliques are not attractive. They exclude and are unkind, whether you mean it or not. You should learn from this lesson, my young grasshoppers.



  60. 60

    She is a HOT MESS, how could she do that to her kid? Maybe if she showed up to work sometime, she would have somewhere to live.

  61. ajbwb says – reply to this


    61

    WHAT GHETTO? I SAW HER HOUSE ON CRIBS IT WAS BEAUTIFUL. I GUESS SHE MANAGED HER OWN MONEY NOT TO WELL.



  62. 62

    I always liked her but she seems to have pissed all her cash up the wall so I have no sympathy



  63. 63

    Re: Hot Monkey Love_VP! – HOLY SHIT…YOU'RE MORE PATHETIC THAN I THOUGHT! SO, PEOPLE WHO GET ALONG CAN'T HAVE COMMENTARY??? WE SHOULD JUST IGNORE EACH OTHER… WE DON'T EXCLUDE BITCH ASS…IF WE DID THEN WE WOULDN'T HAVE SO MANY PEOPLE WE COMMENT WITH…YEAH A LOT OF EXCLUSION IS GOING ON!
    .
    .
    STFU! YOU EXCLUDED YOURSELF BITCH BY BEING A NUISANCE AND MEAN! YOU'RE THE MEAN ONE IN THIS SITUATION NOT ME OR ANYONE IN THE "CLIQUE" AS YOU COINED US!



  64. 64

    that's what happens when you are Ghetto Fabulous! she deserves it!! she missed a whole bunch a days at color purple. she pissed oprah off! you dont do that



  65. 65

    I do NOT Fantasia. What did she expect? C'mon now. I'm a licensed social worker and was laid off 3 months ago due to the economy. I have yet to find work but have managed to put some $ away (from my lousy 40k salary) for times like this. Victim? Please!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



  66. 66

    I do NOT feel bad at all for Fantasia. What did she expect? C'mon now. I'm a licensed social worker and was laid off 3 months ago due to the economy. I have yet to find work but have managed to put some $ away (from my lousy 40k salary) for times like this. Victim? Please!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



  67. 67

    What do you expect? She can hardly get her act together.



  68. 68

    its her fault she cant manage her money and invest for her future….even for her kids sake!!



  69. 69

    Instead of spending all her money on weaves and hair dye, she should have been paying her mortgage. Besides, a million dollars will take you nowhere in today's economy and there are no guarantees that you will always be working in the entertainment business. And, what about all those performances she missed in the Color Purple play. Did she really think Oprah was going to pay her for that?



  70. 70

    Re: BBBoricua – that's right! this is no joking matter! you people make me sick..
    lol shoule have bought a smaller house! are you fucking kidding me?



  71. 71

    Another case of someone buying more than they can afford. How many houses did she need?



  72. 72

    She earned a salary starring on Broadway in Color Purple, she obtained several lucrative contracts for appearing at musical events. One thing is she never moved much product at the retail level (most likely never will)!
    Yet to splurge the massive amount of money that she earned during the past four years is without comprehension. She deserves the financial mess that she is in — she should file for bankruptcy!

    JENNIFER HUDSON was the true musical talent the season this lady won AI!



  73. 73

    She is definitely not losing her house because of a recession. She is losing her house because she bought a house that she couldn't afford. Maybe more people should start living within their means instead of living on borrowed money and there would be a lot less foreclosures.



  74. 74

    what did she do with her cash????/
    .
    she had two fairly good albums…..i know they only sold about a mil each….but thats not tooo bad….is it?

    Why are you so concerned with what goes on in this little circle of friends??

    oh yeah….and grasshoppers????
    .
    Bitch i got your grasshopper right here….come a little closer…..



  76. 76

    She should of read the fine print on her mortgage. Oh, I forgot she couldn't read when she bought this house. She probably got robbed of all her money because she was illiterate and signed her life away. She's young and hopefully she can get work doing county fairs, bar mitzvas, malls and the chitlin circuit.

    Re: ChineseDickFingers – Eww you are BEYOND disgusting…

    Re: carsonchick76 – Who the FUCK are you anyway?? What makes you think you can judge others?? "How could she do this to her daughter"???? She will get another house, you act as if her & her child are now going to sleep on a park bench!! Where do you ignorants fucks come from? She probably went from being penniless to having a lot of $$ and not knowing how to manage it. That alone does not make her a bad mother! So put a sock in it and worry about your own damn self! Some of you people act like the judge, the jury & the executioner! THOUSANDS of people have lost their homes, you don't have to be sympathetic but you also don't have to talk so much shit! Clean up your own back yard, I'm sure it's PLENTY dirty!!!

    Re: AngeLa828 – What is it??? :-) I'm a Chi-O too… where did you go to college?



  85. 85

    Maybe her and NeNe from Real Housewives of Atlanta could be roomies? I hear she got evicted too, they seem like they would be BFF and p.s. fantasia you look like robo-tron… ditch the silver highlights and spacesuit jumper



  86. 86

    Maybe she'd be more comfortable in the primate exhibit at the San Diego Zoo?



  87. 87

    Re: Chloe Marie – That's a very classy comment…what's the matter…mommy didn't give you the nipple when you were a baby? Awwww



  88. 88

    Re: LusciousLiz – You should be wishing you're weren't you. You and Fantasia should get a section-8 apartment together and just be two ghetto fab chicks who spend all your well fare checks on synthetic nail and hair weaves.



  89. 89

    Re: JoJoStar – Hey! Hey! I hate the broad as much as the next person, but that was going a little far! she has no hair and acrylic nails are no more then 30 bucks. Plus… public housing does not make you ghetto! It makes you a statistic.



  90. 90

    Re: TheWench – WHAT? THIS ISN'T AN ACCIDENT. SHE MADE A CHOICE TO BUY SOMETHING SHE COULDN'T REALLY AFFORD JUST LIKE ALL THESE OTHER DUMN ASSES. ACTIONS LIKE THESE COST YOU AND ME AND ALL THE OTHER HARD WORKING AMERICANS THIS BAIL OUT.



  91. 91

    Oh please….at some point she made a good bit of money. Typical….she should have saved some money and not bought a house above her means. Pay your bills bitch…there's no reason for this!



  92. 92

    She and Ruben Studdard's fat-ass can share a studio apartment in Cabrini Green and lament over their sorry-ass careers and shitting their money down the toilet on worthless shit like hair weave, LV luggage and tacky clothing.



  93. 93

    I'd say she should go out and find a job - but I wonder if this moron ever learned how to read?



  94. 94

    not really a victim of the recession here…just went all ghetto with her limited success and blew her money away…



  95. 95

    Why do you even bother wasting the time to post any stories about this ghetto ho? You can take the girl out if the ghetto . . . Between the stupid hair, her inability to speak proper English, always having drama wit' her baby daddy, and those horrible lips and teeth. Of all the people in Atlanta, she is the one we would like to disown.



  96. 96

    Don't feel too sorry for her. She owns 2 houses in Charlotte. They are valued at $1,105,000.00 and $529,300.00. She has 3 mortgages on the 1 mil home. Looks like she was trying to live way beyond her means.



  97. 97

    This is not true. The aforementioned home and another close by are not up for auction or sale and is not under floreclosure. An atty error listed a foreclosure date but all has been settled.



  98. 98

    Re: ChineseDickFingers – hey Archie, the sory is not true, typical cracke…oh wait!

    Re: JoJoStar – Sweetheart…been working full time since I was 16 years old…have never collected ANY kind of assistance from the state of California or any other state…I have supported my two kids BY MYSELF and have done an awesome job so just because you live in a trailer park doesn;t mean everyone does baby….
