Fantasia Speaks About Almost Losing Her Home

| Filed under: Fantasia

Idols are coming out of the woodwork, huh?

'Tis the season!

In lieu of having a sequel to her already failed Lifetime movie, Season 3 winner Fantasia Barrino gave an interview about the hardships she endured this past year, how she overcame them, and how she almost lost her homes.

Fantasia admits it was her faith in her advisors that actually resulted in her money issues, allowing others to handle her finances without reviewing them herself.

She says, "I put my trust in other men — people that said they cared about me…I felt like all I had to do was get the mike, get on the stage and sing and everything else behind me would be taken care of but it didn't happen that way."

Being only a day away from losing her two Charlotte, NC, homes, she went to see a judge who helped her square away the matter so she could stay in her house as well as get rid of her crooked staff.

So now, everything is back on the up and up for the Idol champ. She is back to work on a new CD, which she wants to be "timeless" and another run on The Color Purple.

Again, Fantasia? Really?

Guess you still have lots of bills to pay!

    Everyone has bills to pay, Perez.

    I'm glad she has emerged on top. She overcame a lot in life–illiteracy, single motherhood, poverty. Give the gal a break. She has talent to spare.

    I PROPOSE THAT ALL WHO ARE SICK OF PEREZ AND HIS NEGATIVITY, HIS BIAS, HIS HYPOCRACY, HIS EXPECTATION THAT ALL SHOULD THINK THE WAY HE DOES OR THEY FACE THE WRATH OF FAT BOY, ALL THAT I TIRED OF HIS GAY THIS AND GAY THAT, HOMOPHOBE THIS, AND BLAH BLAH BLAH, TIRED OF HIS VOICE, HIS FACE, ETC. LET'S SEE WHAT HAPPENS IF WE JUST STOP COMING TO THIS LAME SITE. DO A "LOG-OUT". I SUGGEST WE ALL LOG OUT AND NOT COME BACK FOR A WEEK. STARTING IMMEDIATELY. THANKS

    Why is this woman even newsworthy??? I couldn't stand her on Idol and the feeling hasn't changed. She's a loser, plain and simple. Gag.

    Perez- Leave Fantasia alone. You wish you had 1/4 of the talent that she has.

    MTV calls Fantasia the BEST IDOL EVER. And they know music more than you do.

    If you bothered to see her in TCP you would be crying like a baby.

    Re: gossipygab
    it seems like less and less people are posting. Perez is probably a fad, something that will be out like Doris Day in the 70s

    this economy is hitting all kinds. Maybe you'll be next donkey grease

    I personally think she was the most untalented American Idol ever to win so far.
    She needs to stop.
    Stop wasting space on new albums and work for your money at McDonalds, bitch.

    The people (Bush Admins) that are responsible for the economic crisis are responsible for all the wasted and washed up 90's and early 2000's lamo celebrities trying to come back and work harder. In a sense, that's good b/c people try harder and the quality of entertainment and servies in general are better and people on the entry level are getting more opportunities and attention because they will do twice the work for half the price, but that system provided people with credit that they used to live on.

    Now there's no credit and no one can finance anymore imaginary $$$.

    She is a hero to me to keep going on. So many stars are killing themselves for much less. We are all struggling in this economy. Thank Goddess bush is nolonger prez.

    she obviously does not watch Oprah!! oprah gave LeaAnne Rhimes advise a long time ago and said to her make sure you sign your own checks for everything!!! dummmy!

    What happened to her faith in god? Won't HE bring down upon her cheaters that terrible swift sword? She is a poor example of a Chrustian and a homophobic b***c. Haha! You get what you give–and what you deserve, sista!
