Fantasia Talks About Her Pregnancy on Wendy Williams (Video)

Filed under: TV NewsPregnancy Talk

Yesterday Fantasia revealed quite a bit about her controversial pregnancy on the Windy Williams show.

To recap:

Earlier this year the American Idol winner was caught having an affair with a married man, and was later put on suicide watch.

Things were looking up for her when her name became attached to Mahalia!, the biopic about legendary gospel singer Mahalia Jackson — but now that she's been knocked up by her married lover, she might be recast.

Producers are pissed that she got preggers, and Mahalia's religious family is even more pissed because she's having a baybay with a married man.

Watch to see how Fantasia tries to clear the air (above)!

Things really seem to be turning around for Fantasia!

Yesterday, we heard the exciting news that the former American Idol contestant might be pregnant.

Production on the film begins this April, and it's slated for a December 2011 release.
